When You Know Who You Are

August 3, 2015

be who you are… you stand apart from the crowd.

When you don’t know who you are, you get LOST in that crowd.

Everyone wants to be SOMEBODY, but the only way we become a somebody is to make sure that we do NOT become just ANYBODY. 

It is human nature to seek acceptance and approval from others. But you are here in this life to live YOUR LIFE, not anyone else’s. So in essence, it doesn’t matter what other people think, it only matters what you think.

When you live your life according to the thoughts and opinions of others, you hide your light. But when you can express your own unique viewpoint, you share that light with the world and you become known and appreciated for that beautiful light.

You only become GREAT in life by knowing who you are – knowing your unique traits, knowing your unique strengths, knowing your unique perspective and being able to express that out into the world. Being your own unique self sets you apart from the crowd and gives you a competitive advantage.

Do you want to shine? Do you want to be GREAT? Do you want to make a mark on the world? Step aside of the crowd. Do things YOUR WAY.

When you know who you are and you strive to express that everyday, you become known for who you are/what you represent BUT when you hide behind others’ ideals, you get lost in the crowd of mediocrity.

It is always your choice. Where do you stand in your life? Do you know who you are? People who know who they are are extraordinary beings and their light always shines. Conversely, people who fit in NEVER get seen. Where do you want to stand?

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 […]
