Live life to your full potential. Get your passion on!
August 31, 2013
Why are you hiding your greatest? Seriously. You’re smart, a quick learner, and you have amazing energy that people want to connect with. You have a purpose, a calling. I know you do. And really, deep down, you do too.
Maybe it’s just starting to bubble to the surface and you aren’t sure about it, or maybe you’ve known for a long time and you’re just waiting for the moment that’s right to take action. Wherever you are standing right now, there is something inside of you that is telling you that you have to be more connected to your passion. I know you want to live to your full potential. Maybe you weren’t ready to start shining before, but you are now.
I know it’s scary. What if you fail? What if those you love judge you? Worst of all, what happens when you make it all materialize and then realize it wasn’t what you really wanted in the first place? Oh the beauty of how we shame ourselves and make ourselves small.
Marianne Williamson has an infamous poem that I cherish and read often. It starts like this:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?"
Actually, who are you not to be?”
So what’s stopping you? Why so many “if onlys”? Are you willing to start taking some risks?
Life is full of possibilities, but there are some conditions to living in full colour. The first is the willingness to do what Dr. Brene Brown always refers to as “digging deep”, and not giving up when life becomes hard. The second is to fully accept that within all your life experiences, you are amazing, and have something gorgeous to offer this world of ours.
Might you be ready to start living to your potential? Ready to get rid of the shame, blame, and “if onlys”, and start getting your passion on?
