A while ago, I wrote a post about how to get what you want in life, relationships and yourself. While all of it still rings true, that post discusses more of the umbrella concepts than the kind of straight forward detail I want to get into in this post.
I’ve also evolved, failed, succeeded and learned a lot since then.
There are no secrets here on PMS – I’m not a fan of secrets because they generally involve deception and always involve the knowing party on a pedestal while the unknowing party has no option but to look up to the secret holder/”emperor,” who, 11 times out of 10, is unclothed.
I want to share everything with you that has not only changed my luck, my life and my relationships, but has allowed me to be in business in a way that I never thought I could be: without a boss, without being doormatted, without being edited and without a cap on how bright I can shine a light that I never even knew existed until I stopped obsessing about what everyone else thought and how they perceived me.
We all have our own light to shine and unfortunately, the majority of us were made to feel ashamed of and apologize for that light when we were at our most helpless, vulnerable and powerless: As children.
When we’re kids, the guilt, fear and shame associated with being different soon starts to outweigh our ability to shine that light any longer. And thus, another sheep is born. Life becomes nothing more than a game of follow the follower.
In the blink of an eye, we become adults who can’t understand why lovers and friends not only dim whatever remnant of light we have left, but can’t see the light within us. A light that we can’t even see.
As a result, our only hope in resurrecting that light gets put into the hands of disconnected, empathetically bankrupt lovers and friends whose crumbs keep our light as dim as possible so that we are dependent on their validation for emotional survival.
If you’re sick of and tired of living in emotional fight-or-flight with an un-amplifiable light, read.this.post.
If you’re hungry enough for a change, this post WILL reignite that light.
It’s up to you what you want to do with that reignited light. YOU get to decide if you want to continue to allow your belief system to dim it, along with emotionally vampiric and toxic people.
The feedback I revived from my last post inspired to me go deeper. So, last week, I started drafting a list of concise, to-the-point, transformative and POWERFUL rules that have worked for me. These rules will literally allow you to take back the pen, run out of f*cks to give, reclaim your power and call your own shots – relationally, professionally and in life.
