Compromising Yourself

May 2, 2016

th… gets you compromised.

How could it not?

When you feel as if you have to be something or do something that is inauthentic to who you are, you are compromising yourself. If you feel you have to compromise who you are in order to fit into a given situation or a relationship, then it ISN’T THE RIGHT ONE for you.

In life, you get what you accept and if you are compromising yourself to fit into a less-than-ideal situation, then you are only hurting yourself. You are also telling the universe that you do NOT want better and that you are ok with changing yourself for this less-than-desirable outcome. Why would you do that?

The right situations for you in life require YOU TO BE YOURSELF. As soon as you realize that you are in territory where you have to compromise yourself, recognize that that is territory where you DO NOT BELONG. Staying there and trying to fit in will never make it right for you, it will just dilute your power and weaken you. When you compromise yourself for someone or something, you are not operating at peak capacity and thus will never rise to your potential.

Do you want to live the higher side of your life or do you want to undermine yourself to fit into someone else’s half-hearted vision? Compromising yourself gets you compromised. Accepting less than who you are will NEVER GIVE YOU MORE. Be yourself and walk the path of your own life. If who you are (as you are) doesn’t work for someone, then that person doesn’t work in your life. Don’t take yourself down to someone else’s level, keep moving up, the view from the atop always puts you on top of the world.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
