How To Create Inspired, Fulfilling, Success!
Everyone has a unique gift and many people have a strong desire to share it with the world. But not everyone gets the chance to share it it.
Not because the world doesn’t want it, but more so because sadly, they never find the courage to expose it.
You never know where you’ll be discovered but one thing is certain, if you never get out and “do your thing”, share your gift with the world, the world will never know your gift.
There’s a famous quote by Wayne Gretzky, “You MISS 100% OF THE SHOTS YOU DON’T TAKE!”
The setting wasn’t ideal, there were nothing but distractions, she wasn’t all glamorized up, she wasn’t dressed fancy, she’s sporting a backpack, she was a little nervous but still having a good time, BUT she took a shot!
And if you watch closely you’ll see a very common pattern that happens to everyone who steps out of their comfort zone.
When they start out, they are kind of testing the waters, feeling things out. Then, as they get into the rhythm to their gift and “let go” of the fear and inhibition and tap into their heart, the magic they have inside of them takes over and inspires the world around them.
If you listen towards the end, there is a lady that says “One more! One more!”.
Once you open up and let your magic come out of you, people will want more and more of it because it inspires them. They see that power coming from you and it illuminates and validates the same power they have inside of them.
And THAT is how you create not just boring old success, but inspired and fulfilling success that gives your life purpose, meaning, and richness!
Even though it can be scary, and even though you’re bound to experience some judgement and ridicule, step out of your comfort zone today and every day and share your gift.
It doesn’t have to be a perfect environment or perfect circumstances, in fact, there will NEVER be a time when it is “perfect” other than right now!
Look at the girl in this video…
A busy mall or store or airport, a karaoke machine, a random “Ah what the hell! I’ll sing a song…” and someone recorded it with a crappy camera and terrible video quality, posted it on youtube, and from what I understand, she got a recording contract from this one action.
What if she decided to listen to the fear and inhibition that told her “No! Don’t do it! It’s scary!!!”? What if she decided to NOT share her gift? What if she said “I’ll pass today and do it another time” and NOT listen to that burning desire to sing? What if, that day, she kept on on walking by and kept her music inside of her?
Do it because you love it! Do it because it’s something that MUST come out of you. Do it because you’re called to do it because each gift is unique and it’s inside you for a reason. Do it for ANY reason but JUST DO IT!
Even you know nothing else other than you have something inside of you that MUST come out and you have no idea what the reason is, DO IT! Because you may never truly know what that reason is until and unless you find the courage to DO IT!
You never know when it’s the shot that’s going to go in, you never know when it’s YOUR shot, and you may not get many shots to take so take them when life hands you the ball.
And I’ll leave with one of my favorite quotes from when I did the worlds highest bungee jump:
“Fear is temporary, regret is forever!”
