Define Yourself: Live in Fullness
In the Western world, we spend a lot our time rushing around trying to “accomplish” something. Fill in the blank and we are trying to get it done. Make more money. Lose more weight. Find more love. Finish our to-do lists. Have more energy. Get a better job. Have more free time. Love ourselves more. Get to work on time. Get home on time.
Western society is dominated by “achievers.” Nothing wrong with achievers; I myself have an achiever within me. But, like everything, if the achiever is out of balance, life is out of balance.
I have come to believe that you cannot force most things in life. Sure you can set goals and achieve them, but I’m talking about something bigger. It’s very important to know what you want. If you don’t know what you want it won’t happen.
But, if you spend all your time focusing on what you want, and at the same time believing that you are experiencing lack in the not having of it, you are setting yourself up for a lot of pain.
The truth, as I see it, is that you and me, we are already whole. We are children of this journey and by our very nature are taken care of. If we have a goal to achieve, it’s not because we are lacking anything, but because we choose to experience a different version of fullness.
You can’t do it all by yourself. And chasing what you want from a place of lack will give you results. But if you want big results, big love and freedom, I suggest entering into life from fullness.
The uneasiness you feel from going from a perception of lack to a belief in already being full is your work. When you can walk in your own skin and feel like you’ve already arrived and that you are already full, you have arrived to your own power. Until then, surround yourself with people, places and circumstances that promote your fullness and your dreams. Cultivate a positive mindset, work on yourself every day and let go of results.
A life of fullness exists today, right now. Your work is to see it, feel it and then act from that place. You will bring even greater fullness into your life when you do.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself!!
