“When you drop a pebble into a pond, ripples spread out, changing all the water in the pool. The ripples hit the shore and rebound, bumping into one another, breaking each other apart. In some small way, the pond is never the same again.” – Neal Shusterman
The pebble in the pond story is just a metaphor about you finding and discovering your true and higher purpose in life. More importantly, it is about the impact that you’re going to make on society when you summon the courage to drop your pebble into the pond.
How far will the ripples of your life’s mission expand throughout the pond of the universe?
How many people will be inspired, touched, and changed for the better because you existed?
How will the world be different after you’ve shared your talents and gifts with us all?
No matter where you are in your life right now, you have deeper purpose and a latent potential that only you can fulfill. It’s up to you to figure out what that is!
“Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay it’s price.” – Sun Tzu
After attending the awesome Victory Motorcycle ride this past weekend, I started to think a lot about VICTORY. Not only victory, but the high price of victory…. and I’m NOT merely referring to the cost of the sweet bikes you’ll see featured in this article…
What I’m talking ’bout is the price we have to pay to be victorious in life!
We all want to live the dream; to be successful in every aspect of our lives. We all want the beautiful, loving wife or strong, loyal husband, the luxurious home, the sweet, pimped out ride and the lean, hard physique of an awakened warrior or goddess.
We ALL want it (or some version of it)… yet only a small percentage of us will ever make it our reality!
“We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.” – Malcolm X
Elevating ones self worth is the first step in increasing the amount of success that surrounds you. The things you want in life must first be created from within yourself before they can be experienced in the physical world. This article is part two in the series about self worth.
This post focuses on ways to raise self worth, thereby allowing you to invite more success, love, and prosperity into your life. By focusing on the steps below, you will help to remove the subconscious resistance that is holding you back from your goals and creating the life you want to live.
“Don’t look to society to give you permission to be yourself.”
– Dr. Steve Maraboli
Most of us are waiting for someone to give us permission to live our lives. We’re waiting for someone to tell us it’s okay to be ourselves.
We’re waiting for our internal “mommy” and “daddy” to give us their metaphoric nod of approval.
Whether it’s our figurative or literal parents or any of the other prominent men and women in our lives…. so many of us are waiting for their acceptance, their agreement, and their RED Rubber Stamp of Approval in life.
“Self-worth comes from one thing – thinking that you are worthy.”
– Dr. Wayne Dyer
Does life seem to be one big struggle, to obtain the prosperity, love and happiness you feel you deserve?
Do you try with all your might to succeed, yet there always seems to be something holding you back or dragging you down?
If so, there could be areas of low self worth that need to be addressed within yourself in order to move beyond the patterns of self destructive behavior that is influencing your life on the subconscious level.
“Burnout is nature’s way of telling you, you’ve been going through the motions your soul has departed; you’re a zombie, a member of the walking dead, a sleepwalker.”
– Sam Keen
We’re all familiar with the sleep disorder known as sleepwalking. Sleepwalkers rise from the stillness of slumber in a state of low consciousness. While still asleep they may perform activities that are typically only performed while in a state of full wakeful consciousness; like walking around for example. Some may eat, urinate in the closet, or even leave the house. It’s a given that this can be a dangerous situation, especially the urinating part! 😉
