Standing in Your Truth: The Sweet Spot for Success

Fear, my old friend, I recognize you now when you come to me in the night, disguised as bills, illness, heartbreak, grief or disappointment.

I recognize you by the stirring in my gut as you approach, the quickening of my heart, the frantic pacing of my thoughts. Ah! It is only you! And you, fear, are not real!

You are the boogeyman I planted in my closet. The one I told to awaken me in the night so I would learn to dance with you instead of cry. So I would learn to use you as fuel to help me reach my next level. So I would see ultimately that you are my friend, my fertilizer, my divine companion on this journey to rediscover my soul.

I embrace you, fear, because without you I would be nowhere. I would never have jumped off my first cliff into the unknown. I would never have stepped into my first terrifying adventure that changed everything. I would never have found my voice. Because without you, fear, I would still be sleeping.

I embrace you fear because I know that when I turn away from you – I make my bravest choices; I take steps in a new career direction; I quit the job that isn’t working; I stand in my truth.

Because of you, fear, I can courageously move forward into the unknown – which is always the juicy spot, the sweet spot and the first step on my path to success.

You already know how this ends…

You already know how this ends…

You know that in the end you will be fully revealed as who you came to be and you hope that this revelation won’t be on your deathbed when the illusion finally fades and it’s too late to change everything.

And you hope it won’t be when you’re too feeble to do your soul’s work. And you hope it will be now. Today. Not tomorrow, although tomorrow is not too late.

But today is always better.

Today is always the best day; to start everything, change everything, love everyone like you never have before, drop your fear on the ground and forget to pick it up.

Because today is juicy and alive and tomorrow may never arrive.

And today is when you planned to finally listen to your soul’s wisdom, use your divine lens to see what you never saw, to know everything you’ve needed to know.

Today is the day you meant to transcend all limitation, to release all fear, to take the big step, to throw out the old, to swing open the door to your heart and see everything fearlessly, recognize your shit, embrace your gold, and get it done the way you came here to get it done.

Today is that day…
