Do you want to be you and be authentic?
Oscar Wilde said: ‘’ Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.’’
Do you remember the feeling when the sun is gently shining on your face and making you smile? Smile for no reason, because you are care free and present in the moment. Being alive is being able to smell the roses, to enjoy the summer breeze and to experience the beauty in the world. However, there comes a moment when we get confused, lost and empty inside. It is like standing in the middle of nowhere. We are never prepared for this moment. So it makes us even more scared and stuck. Being like a train that never moves from one particular station even though it works perfectly technically. This is the moment when it hit us that we have lost ourselves in the ocean of life.
What really matters is being able to love yourself and loving what you do. We all have the strength to connect with ourselves again and find the path to the life that we want to create for ourselves. Everybody loses themselves once in a while in life. There are many experiences and people coming and going from our life. Here is the moment to let the little cat grow up and become a tiger, a lion full of courage to find and create itself. To recreate a really strong, courageous, smart, beautiful and exceptional kind of true self. Getting back in harmony with oneself and living a fulfilling life may not always be easy, but it is definitely worth the effort. Is the little kid inside you still alive and full of energy? This silly, curious, energetic boy or girl who was always busy to start or finish an interesting game, to have fun all day long, to observe the challenging world around with widely open eyes without a sign of fear or hesitation. Allow the inner kid let go and let him be your life coach with the strategies presented:
1) Growth and finding your true, authentic self come only when getting out of your comfort zone. So do some stretching, do something new, challenging, and exciting things via discovering the new skills that you own. Some of the ideas could be:
1.1 new sports such as hiking in the nature, climbing, rafting, surfing, beach volleyball, anything that is new and excites you as a person
1.2 creative skills such as writing, singing, dancing, painting a beautiful painting or any other activity that you have never done before
1.3 travelling to new , unconquered destinations is what wakes up all of your sense, what makes you feel awake, alive, connected to yourself
1.4 you can chose any experience that is new, interesting and challenging for you as long as it will get you out of your comfort zone
2) Give back to the world, contribute, do something for free and for other people without expecting anything in return. Kids do this automatically without any greedy expectations about what they will get back. This will give you great feeling for the heart and enrich your soul. This is the main source of freedom, happiness and lightness that the kids own. We used to own it too, so let’s find a new way to get it back. There are numerous ways to contribute if that is what you want:
2.1 Teach the adults and kids for free a skill or a successful mindset you have
2.2 Provide resources- money, clothes, books and anything you do not need to people who are in need
2.3 Organize a charity event; support a cause that matters for you
2.4 Become a mentor to someone and help them set the right vibe and start of their lives
Doing something for the others without expecting anything in return will free you from your own fears, anger, worries and will help you unleash the real you. This is the moment when you will feel powerful, free, joyful, and happy in peace with life.
Why this works and why I am offering the unpleasant opportunity to stretch out of your lovely comfort zone? Because this is the only way for you to see how powerful, special, magical and unique you are. Kids do it all the time and they are still safe, but brave unlike many adults. Why don’t you try? There are so many examples of successful people who have it all- money, prosperity, health, love, great families, exciting lives. The key in my opinion is to align with your true self and do the things that you love and inspire you. Then success becomes a natural state of being and things start easily coming into your life. Give yourself the chance to live this abundant life that will make you excited, content, strong and unleash the real beautiful you.
The benefits of challenging yourself and owning yourself as a result are numerous. Feeling great, being successful, taking everything from life and living life on your own terms. This is completely new way to perceive life, live in harmony and joy. Sounds like a miracle, but it is all in your hands. Just spend some time to observe how the kids go after what they want without compromising anything before they get to the final destination. Everything is achievable with the right set of skills, mindset and goals that excite you personally. Give yourself the opportunity to reach the optimum potential of your beautiful spirit and soul. Live life with your head up- confidently and with love. Nothing matters more to be authentic that loving yourself and loving what you do. Enjoy the ride and be AUTHENTIC, everything else is a waste of time. Feel the sun, the wind and the magic around you. Even let yourself create some magic!
