5 ESSENTIAL THINGS YOU CAN DO TO WRITE & PLAY BY YOUR RULES
Start following your own path as a unique being with a divine calling.
If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’ve probably felt different your whole life. Maybe you’ve always known you didn’t fit in with the masses, and no one else understood the desires of your heart.
The desires of MORE. More joy, deeper connections, bigger dreams, and higher fulfillment.In short, mediocrity will never feel satisfying for you…
This is why the times we feel the most conflict with our true nature is when society says they have other plans or norms for us.
When your dreams and desires are met with confusion, misunderstanding, or even judgment from other people, it isn’t easy to forge your own path.
But you’re not alone in that feeling… I’ve been there! And I made it through to the other side by writing my own rules that I live by every day.
Here’s how you can do the same:
#1 Stop playing the one-size-fits-all game.
Sure, we live in a world begging us to conform. But you don’t have to lean into that!
Maybe you can’t put it into words, but something has always set you apart from the crowd. You’ve never “fit the norm.”
So when it comes to ‘one-size-fits-all’ programs, approaches, or advice, they most likely won’t apply to you. Because you are unique, your journey will also be 100% unique.
You were born with a specific purpose, calling, truths, desires, and innate gifts. So, following an approach that promises it works for ‘everyone’ won’t work for you. Plus, sameness is just so boring. You were born exquisite.
#2 Stop chasing your dreams. They’re not running from you!
Your dreams are WAITING for you to be you. Once you own your truths, desires, and gifts, that’s where the Universe gives you a big high five!
As Leonard Kim, the managing partner of Build Your Influence, wrote in this Inc article, “When you decide to chase something, what you decide to chase starts to run away.”
So the way to start ATTRACTING your dreams is you OWN YOUR TRUTH!
There are truths imprinted on your soul, desires written on your heart, and natural gifts you’re meant to share with the world. Only YOU know what these are.
When you can align with your truth, lean into your desires, and use your innate gifts…
… Your unique purpose will reveal itself to you more every day so you can live the life you desire.
#3 Be your own authority.
Once you stop trying ‘one-size-fits-all’ approaches and start owning your truths, desires, and gifts — you become your own authority.
How does that work in practice?
First, you consult YOURSELF when making decisions instead of looking to other people to tell you what to do. Being your own authority = alignment with your higher self.
And it’s a decision you must make every moment of every day to live in the freedom of who you are called to be. Trust that your inner knowing will guide you, and you’ll discover more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
#4 Know you are worthy.
You know that feeling deep in your soul that you are here for MORE? That inner voice is telling you that you’re here for a reason and you’re inherently worthy.
I’ve worked with many amazing women that feel this deep sense of purpose, but it doesn’t always manifest for everyone.
Chances are you feel this calling deep in the cells of your being to live a deeper, more meaningful, and fulfilling life. And no matter what you do or who you are, you are ALWAYS worthy of pursuing that meaning.
Internalize this value, and there is nothing you can’t do!
#5 Say “Yes” to the Invitation of Being Intimated & Intrigued.
When you feel the twinge of intimidation (and a little bit of intrigue) behind a decision or a moment of enlightenment, you know you’re on the brink of something EXTRAORDINARY.
It means you’re on the path of transformation, evolution, and exquisiteness. So buckle up and enjoy the ride! Momentary discomfort is worth the value of enlightenment.
I actually have an entire Podcast episode about this final principle. Click here if you would like to dig even deeper.
I invite you to explore and integrate these five principles into your life.
Rewrite these points in your own words, and think about what each one means for you.
And get creative with it! Grab some fancy markers or pens and doodle these words onto a page, display them on your desktop, and hang them up where you’ll see them every day. Don’t be afraid to use all the creative tools at your disposal to reinforce these positive values.
Make a point to review them once, twice, or even three times a day.
Let them sink into your cells, your bones, the very fiber of your being.
And remember to give others the same courtesy of allowing their true selves to shine!
