Discover YOUR Greatness: Quiet the Inner Critic
You get so close and back away. You taste greatness. But it seems too good to be real.
You’re actualizing your core self, your feelings, your desires. You knew you had it inside and could share it with the world… to make this a better world. A richer one made with a tapestry of creativity, passion, and truth.
But there’s a voice telling you no one wants to hear you. No one could enjoy you. No one appreciates the greatness within you. It calls your attention to an acute awareness of the catastrophe of life, and your part in it.
Say hello to the mindless chatter of your self sabotaging fear, sadness, and doubt. It wants you to stay where you are – numb, disconnected, where you don’t want to be. But where you’re oddly comfortable.
It’s a familiar place. It’s predictable and safe. But it’s limiting. It grows small inside the walls of your fear. It’s lonely. One dimensional.
Bust out of that tiny room in your head. Refuse compliance with anger, anxiety, and loneliness. Rebel against the tired old messages that no longer serve you. Engage the hungry mind. Indulge the thirst for connection, impact, and influence.
Only the flow of word, deed, and experience can feed the soul of passion and creativity. Nourish the yearning. Manifest an energy larger than you.
Yes, it’s big. At times it’s overbearing. But this is life force. It moves you to a place of disbelief. It’s a place of profound joy that you could really be this person. This complex, passionate, relevant human being. Your true self. Unleashed. Vulnerable. Strong.
Welcome. Stay awhile. Keep your commitments. Dream big. Honor your inner greatness. Believe in your core self. Connect with your truest desires. Abandon judgement. Notice the intricacy, beauty, and complexity of this life as a living breathing human being.
You are as worthy as anyone else on this planet. Embrace that. When you do, you can only make this a better place for all.
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Howard Thurman
