There’s 7.8 billion other people on the planet, who want the same
And that number is steadily rising every single second.
Every single one of them has a completely unique life with their own individual experiences of the world around them.
However, as part of a community, each of them are also taught general rules, laws and guidelines for what they should be doing with their time on this planet.
Society, religion and culture influence us all for better or worse. Many of us completely unaware of the limitations that these influences may put on us. We are the proverbial goldfish, who have no idea about what’s outside our little fish bowl.
Luckily, we don’t have to stay in that fish bowl. We get to jump right out of it into the big wide ocean of opportunity and possibilities, where you get to do and be whatever you want to be in this life.
Hopefully, you have already discovered that the only real limitation placed on you, is the capacity at which you are able to move beyond the limitations placed on you. Reread that.
Because that is where you find your edge.
It’s your life to live
And it’s also your life to waste.
Anything that you are doing right now, which isn’t bringing you what you really desire, is on you to change. It is your responsibility to make this the life that you dream of.
The question is, do you know what that is?
Are you clear on what you really want out of this life? From your relationships? From your business or career? From yourself?
Are you following what your heart, mind and soul is calling for – or are you following the path, which others have laid for you?
This is a call for you to get clear on what it is YOU really want, and to stop blindly buying into what the world might have been telling you to do.
What would your ideal life look like?
Not society’s version. Not your parents’ version. Not your friends’ version. Not your partner’s version. Your version.
What life, do you really want to live? How do you want to feel each day? What do you want to be doing? How do you want your relationships to be? Where do you want to live? Who do you want to be with? How are you spending your time?
Knowing that and being clear on the things, that you really want, is key to being able to create that ideal life. Figure out what that looks like.
When you have clarity around your mission in this life and the vision for how you want to live it, then you’ll also be able to see what is missing for it to become a reality. You can then start to take action and make it a reality.
Follow your true path to find your edge
It’s really that simple.
When you start following what’s in your heart, listening to your soul and allowing your own creativity to take the reins over your life. That is when you will start standing out in this world.
It is not by doing what others do, but rather by doing what you want to do.
Your edge will come, as you start to live the life you dream of.
But here’s the catch!!
You don’t get there by staying where you are. You don’t get there by standing still. And you don’t get there by doing nothing.
You have to be open to change, to take steps forwards and to continuously grow.
So be yourself, but be your best self!
Be the self, that goes out and takes actions on your goals.
Be the self, who does meaningful things, that you can feel proud of.
Be the self, where you are able to look towards the future with excitement and simultaneously reflect back with joy on a life well lived.
