Well here it is… seems I’ve gone and done it now. It’s all well and good to have a principle and get passionate, the buggar about is then you need to live it to make it authentic.
I’m passionate, I love feeling amazing and healthy, and I care what I put into my body. So why do I have days when I don’t follow these principles?
The same reason everyone does : fear. Fear of being different from my family. Fear of dancing wildly to the tune that plays in my head and being spotted as being different. Conspicous, noticeable. What’s so scary about that? People won’t like it, they’ll criticise and then I may listen to it.
As Seth Godin talks about in Purple Cow the reason people stay in the bell curve with marketing activity is the fear of being criticised. Read his book. Then substitute the word “Marketing” for “Life”. The reason most stay with the majority is safety, acceptance, “friends”.
It’s rubbish. LIFE is at the edge, TRUTH is ownership : owning yourself, your principles and PASSION is being COURAGEOUS enough to shout about it.
I’ve hid my passions this year, when my theme is INTEGRITY. And it only just hit me when I read my blogs, Bllaahhhh is all I can say to those.
So pin your ears back, get some ear plugs, turn down the volume on your computers. I’m getting PASSIONATE and COURAGEOUS and will speak my truth from now on on here.
Here’s the first one : Find the purpose for what you are doing and you WILL be successful. Simple. This doesn’t have to be huge, just truthful and stirring for YOU, the most important person in your world. Yes, a bonus truth for today : YOU are the MOST important person in your world. Not the kids, your partner, parents or dog. YOU. Without you none of works.
So today, find the purpose what you do today and tomorrow. Something you’re prepared to fight for. Die for. LIVE for.
What do you want to debate with me? What do you want to challenge? Bring it on I say. There’s not enough debate, discussion, sharing of thoughts.
Giddy up People it’s a brand new day!
