The Awkwardly Simple Solution To Becoming Successful

We doubt ourselves way more than we should. We question our ability to create and perform when intuitively we know we have the stuff.

Not only do we innately know we are highly capable, but our very lives are a reflection of our brilliance. Sure, we’ve had our failures.

But look at your life. Look what you’ve done. You’re more than enough.

The problem with your success isn’t your ability.

It’s how you continue to perceive a lack thereof. It’s that you continue to allow yourself to be far less than you know you are.

Tony Robbins felt this way. Until one day, it hit him square in the face. This is what he said:

I remember the moment my life changed, the moment I finally said, ‘I’ve had it! I know I’m much more than I’m demonstrating mentally, emotionally, and physically in my life.’ I made a decision in that moment which was to alter my life forever. I decided to change virtually every aspect of my life. I decided I would never again settle for less than I can be.”

Living Up To The Person You Already Are

We waste loads of time trying to pre-qualify ourselves for opportunities we arealready qualified for.

You don’t need more experience, knowledge, connections, money, or abilities. You have enough. More than enough actually.

Just put out the creative work that genuinely reflects what you know and who you are. You’ll be stunned and amazed by how impactful it is.

What have you been wanting and waiting to do — but erroneously believe you’re not quite ‘there’ yet?

You’ve been taught to ‘act as if’ you’re successful so you can then one daybecome successful. That is all well and good. But you’d be better off ‘acting as if’ you are who you already are. Quit the craziness of believing you’re less than you really are. You’re brilliant and ready.

You have work to do. It can only be done by elevating your pessimistic perspective and finally accepting the limitless and powerful person looking back in the mirror. You know who that person is. It’s time to let the world see that person. Please stop waiting and stop believing you need more.

Your work is going to change the world.

The Startling Results Of Accepting Your Brilliance

Being inspired in your work, relationships, and life is your natural state of being. Your challenge is that you’ve disconnected from your true self and your true source. You’ve been fed a lie and come to believe it.

Luck, miracles, and brilliant opportunities will not be rare once you disconnect from the matrix you’ve plugged yourself into.

Come back to the real world. Miracles are the natural way of living here. You have the power to create and shape the world around you.

The closer you’re aligned to your reality, the more instantaneous your desires will manifest.

Stop Hiding

Perhaps Marianne Williamson said it best:

“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? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Stop hiding.

Stop lying to yourself and trying to pre-qualify. You’re qualified.

Now live and be powerful and change the world.
