The following is a guest post by Dr. Shannon of Healing Life Coach, Inc.
So often we see ourselves as becoming something. My question for you is, “Are you being on your way to becoming?”
Let me explain:
Your “be” is your bold and energetic you as you are—not who you are going to be—it’s “coming” into the moment of now.
It’s when you show up with you—your whole beautiful self that lacks nothing. It’s when you are not only bold and energetic, but you also become it. You come with who you are versus who you are not (or versus who you think you are). It’s when you show up with all of you.
Can you imagine that?
If you can imagine it, you can be it, because imagining is simply allowing the reflection of that image to show up and be included in this wonderful adventure of life.
Are you willing to show up? Be included? Be bold? Be energetic? If you’re willing, then we can take the next step.
Step 1: Expose Yourself
It’s what I like to call, “Being naked and unashamed.” Stand in front of your mirror and for one minute, reflect on all the good things you see—like you would if you were speaking to your best friend.
(Warning: If you cannot do this, fear is standing in front of you. Ask fear to step aside and then tell me what you see. Being fearless is not about never feeling afraid. It’s being willing to fear less. It’s about seeing what’s true and living and loving more.)
You can do it!
Step 2: Locate Yourself
Take one minute to honestly evaluate where you are: physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Take inventory of where you are without judgement. Ask yourself, “Where am I?” Then, kindly ask, “Where would I like to be?”
Remember, the first step in getting to where you desire to go is to know where you are. Where are you and most importantly, are you being fully present where you stand today? Are you consciously aware of you?
Step 3: Know Yourself
Give yourself one minute to take another inventory of what it is that you know about you. Acknowledge the desires in your heart, the gifts that are uniquely you, the resources in your life that add value to your life, the people you love, those that love you, the gift of health—anything or anyone of value that you are connected to.
Ask yourself, “If what I currently have in my life were all the resources I had, how could I use what I’ve got to build something/do something/be amazing?”
Is it possible? Yes, it is.
It’s no coincidence that the word “inventory” starts with the word “invent”!
Recognize who you are and what you have. Before long, you’ll invent something so magnificent that your current way of living will not only be bold and energetic, but you will reflect that magnificence too!
Please let me know what you come up with, I’d love to hear your story.
