Don’t kill what scares you. Embrace it!
What scares you the most is your raw, untamed authenticity.
What scares the hell right out of you is the crazy brilliance that you know you really are.
This post is a call to action for those who want even more inspiring and fulfilling work. If you really love your job – quit reading now. But if you really want to bet the farm on you – read on!
As a career coach, here’s the question I hear most often.
Here are two better questions.
“What was I before I grew up?”
“What wild part of me have I allowed to be beaten down and killed, for fear of being judged?”
Never destroy any aspect of personality, for what you think is the wild branch may be the heart of the tree. Mrs. Henry George
Cultural conformity is fear-based pressure created so the real you doesn’t rock the boat
Accumulated conditioning, rules and collective fears, all pushing societal stability, will continue to separate you from your authentic wildness, if you allow it to.
Most folks claim they want their authentic freedom. But they act as though they want stability and safety.
Stability and authenticity exclude one another.
Take a stand. Refuse fear. Live fearlessly.
Allow your authentic wildness to flourish once more.
Don’t kill your wildness. Flaunt your wildness.
If you really didn’t give two shits, about what anyone would say or think – what would you do then?
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. – Dr. Seuss
Your time is now. Waiting is stupid, fearful thinking. Quit listening to those who fear their own power. The cement truck could flatten your ass tomorrow. How’s that for timing?
It’s not timing but expressed uniqueness that truly determines exceptional success.
We increase the probability of creating a life of freedom, fulfillment and financial prosperity to the degree that we are willing to express our exceptionality.
It’s time for you to choose. Quit allowing cultural appropriateness to crush your wildness.
It really does start with not giving a damn. What do you think the world rewards more, being nice or being authentic?
By choosing authenticity you’re going to piss some people off.
So what, what has playing it safe done for you so far?
Be naughty. Misbehave. Break some stupid rules.
Be the eccentric character you really are and some may hate you. But some will adore you.
Your only obligation in life is to be true to yourself. Being true to anyone else or anything else is impossible. Richard Bach
Don’t wonder what you’ll be when you grow up. You’re already too damned grown up. Be a kid again. Ride your wildness all the way to the bank.
I’m not just all talk about this. I deliver.
Bold lives are chosen and created.
Have you the courage to create the life you most want to live?
No excuses, you either do or you don’t. If this time doesn’t work for you, go here to request your own test drive coaching experience.
Embrace what sacres you. The world is waiting for your light.
