You are awesome. You have unique genius in you that will benefit the world around you. But too often, social conditioning and social pageantry try to make you think that your value is attached to things and awards and positions.
You are NOT your job. Nor is your value as a human being, and a child of God, determined by where you live, what you drive and how you dress.
I Believe in The Goodness of Mankind
I’ve had the wonderful privilege of traveling quite a bit around the world, and I’ve met so many wonderful people. I’ve done life coaching, mentoring, and I’m helping people to become their best and reach their full potential. And I believe in the goodness of mankind, I believe that people are awesome and I believe that YOU are awesome!
And what I have noticed over the years of study, research and observation, is that a lot of people struggle with their real identity of who they really are. If you were to strip away your titles, certificates, degrees, diplomas, positions, job, things, stuff, house, status, talents, skills, ability, and just be you, how would you feel? Are you comfortable with yourself or have you been too attached to your possessions and your identity that you’ve created?
There was a super model who gave a TED talk and she said that if you want to find a room of insecure people, find a room full of models. It’s because they’ve attached so much of their identity to their appearance.
There is a huge problem in our day with narcissism. This excessive obsession with one’s self and appearance. And that goes with praise, honour and titles. We get so caught up in worrying about what others think of us or placing our value as a human being in this external things. It’s pretty interesting, isn’t it?
I’ve been to some pretty remote villages in Peru, Guatemala and India, where the “most famous person” from the states could roll in there and not a soul would know who they are or what they do, and they would be treated just like another human being. I love that idea!
Think about it. If you were transplanted from your whole world, and were put you in a new place where nobody knows who you are or knows what skills, abilities or status you have, could you be comfortable there just as a human being? I really want you to think about that! And I challenge you to begin detaching your value and your identity as a person from all those things!
You are great! You have greatness in you! You have wonderful potential and huge value!
I want you to start working and focusing on just being you. And so my invitation to you today is to become very comfortable with WHO YOU ARE! Live independent of the opinions of others and of all the things that the world tries to make you put value on. Try to become the very best YOU and try to become a sincere, authentic and wonderful human being. Life is just a quest to become a superb human being, and that’s it!
SO be that awesome person!
