Hey guys, thank-you for joining this journey with me and welcome back for another week and a great new message. As I write this week’s blog and message, I’m in Los Angeles, California participating in the Proctor Gallagher Institute ‘Paradigm Shift’ seminar. I’ve got some great stuff to share with y’all this week and beyond, but I want to start this week’s blog focused on something Bob said that I think I need to share with you. Last week, I mentioned a short Socrates quote from that said, “Know thyself”. This turned out to be a really a great transition for this week because of what Bob said. “If you don’t like yourself, it’s because you don’t know who you are.” Read that quote again and think about it for a moment.

If there are moments where you feel insecure or doubt yourself, and sometimes you find yourself picking and choosing between the pieces of you that you like or don’t like, it’s because you don’t know who you truly are. You haven’t accepted the fact that you are the greatest form of creation in this universe. You don’t know that you are one with everything good thing that is happening within you or around you. You don’t need something special to happen for you in order for you to finally grow. Growth comes from the knowledge of knowing who you are and what your place is within this world. We all have this unique gift within us, the “I am” of our consciousness. It is ours to craft into the self-image and self-identity of who we are, and who we are not. With this gift, we can determine who we are, and what we are capable of. The most powerful tool you can have to start living the life you dream of is knowing who you are.

If you really knew who you were, there’s no way you wouldn’t like yourself. This simple idea truly embodies the thesis of this message that I’m trying to spread to you and the world of owning your outcome, taking responsibility, and making adversity your advantage. “If you don’t like yourself, it’s because you don’t know who you are.” The truth is that we don’t spend enough time getting to know exactly who we are. We’re busy on our phones, staring at tablets or screens, or going places we aren’t even sure we want to go with people who we aren’t sure we want to spend time with. We don’t spend enough time trying to understand how our mind, body, hearts, and spirit work to align the life we live in. Understand that we create our life with every thought, idea, and belief that we have. So, all that negative energy in your life- take responsibility for it because it’s yours. Take ownership for the good, and the bad, and realize that you have a say in the matter. You can’t blame someone or something else for the life you are living. You have the power of realizing who you are meant to be, and what you are meant to do, and that is my challenge for you this week. Start paying attention to everything you are and have within you. This challenge extends to you embracing and accepting all that is for you and understanding that you are the creator and person that has full consciousness. You are not lacking in your life, you are everything in this world that matters and everything that you have in your life, every single piece of who you are, is exactly what you need to help align the life you are destined to live.

Guys, know that there is a moment out there for you, where it clicks, and it hits you. You make the conscious effort to raise your awareness and identify yourself as the amazing being that you truly are with infinite potential. Those flaws that you remind yourself of, that are holding you back, are just excuses and lies that this person you’ve allowed to take autopilot over your life tells you so that they can stay in control. But the truth is, now you’re paying attention. Now, you know that your flaws are anything but. You will understand that all of these pieces of you are your gifts, along with your adversity. Every single thing that makes you, is the gift that will take you to the places your dreams exist. Find yourself, and just be that person, and watch things fall into place as they should.
