Last week while I was getting 1:1 stage training and coaching from some of the top trainers in the world, a recurring theme emerged not just for me but for others in the program, too.
Each of us made the commitment to be there well in advance, knowing we were saying "yes" to the idea of living into a bigger version of ourselves and having much greater influence in the world. Each of us carved out the space in our lives and work, investing a good deal of money and time to be there. Some were millionaires, some were middle class and I even met someone on welfare. Each did whatever it took to be there and by saying "yes" to being there, we were saying that "now" was the right time, no matter what.
And yet, when it was time to take the stage and receive the coaching they came there for, many people resisted actually stepping up to practice and receiving the wisdom of the experts. They often waited until a force outside of themselves forced them into action.
Fortunately for me, my desire to become a greater me is stronger than my fear of making a fool of myself in front of the best in the world! Oh, yes, I felt the urge to stay glued to my chair just like the others, but I acted in spite of the fear and experienced a quantum leap because of it. And even though others needed coaxing, eventually they, too, acted in spite of fear and experienced amazing transformations.
"Do you want to live your life in a closet and then die? Or would you rather live fully expressed, fully authentic, fully connecting and then die?" asked Larry Gilman, one of the brilliant course trainers. The answer seems obvious yet how often do we say "I can't. I'm too scared. When I have enough money. When I have the time. When I feel safe" etc., etc. I know which way I choose to live and it sure as hell isn't in a closet!
Larry likes to say it's bold and daring to be clear and dangerous. I say "yes!" And how much more alive it feels!
So I ask you, when would "now" be the right time to make the changes you want to make, to step into a greater version of yourself, to be bold and daring, to be as successful as you want to be? Whether the force is coming from inside or outside, it's not enough to say "yes" to the idea. Wouldn't you agree? You then have to live into it, experiencing all the aliveness that comes with it. It's not always easy, but it is always authentic and liberating.
The only obstacle…is the voice of so called "reasons" that goes on between your ears.
I invite you to say "now" is the right time to start re-programming the voice in your head so you can live into acting with courage in the face of fear, so you can use your physiological resources to BE the bigger version of yourself you know you can be, and so you can telegraph your magnetism to those around you thereby increasing your success.
George Ira Carroll and I will be helping you do just that in our upcoming workshop:
…Because how you show up is far more compelling than the product or message you are promoting. Your authenticity, your humanity, your energy say more about you than the actual words you have to say. When would "now" be the right time to step into being radiantly you?
