IF YOU SAY YOU CHOOSE TO BE RICH, AND FAMOUS, AND HAVE IT ALL, WHY DON’T YOU JUST ACT LIKE IT?
I know you think you’re not ready and that you’ve still so much to prove, that you can’t approach or pitch to or maybe even talk to the people who you really want to connect with, be featured by, know, but here’s the thing:
It was never supposed to be about being ready.
It was about asking, and then following through.
Manifestation, creating your life on purpose, dictating your reality and then LIVING it – when did anybody tell you that that stuff only works if you’ve proven yourself worthy?!
“Oh, yes, you can ask for whatever you desire in alignment and faith and have it, but only if you’re at a certain level, have a certain list of credentials, have PROOF that you’re worthy!”
… Said nobody ever.
But yet somehow you’ve decided that for YOU, it’s not okay to ask, not yet, not as you are now, not until –
Well, until what?
Until you’ve been more, seen more, done more, worked your way up more?
At what point will you deem yourself GOOD ENOUGH to press play on the life you know is yours?
Let’s just have a little bit of a wake up call here:
If you’re in ANY way saying that you being rich and famous and having it all is something that is allowed based on external forces or ‘proof’ rather than something you will create based on who you ARE and the gifts you already carry (although perhaps hide!) inside of you then you will, quite simply, never –
Or get there.
There’ll always be something else you need to ready yourself with, another hurdle to jump, another barrier to cross, another person whose acceptance or approval to get, when really all that you ever needed –
Was your own.
And so you’ll sit here, and you’ll wait, and you’ll wonder, and you’ll WISH, and then you know what will happen? You’ll look up one day, and you’ll see –
Doing what you said YOU would do.
Pressing fucking play.
All the way!
Because they asked.
And they’re not even at the stage YOU are at!
Not that it fucking MATTERS what anybody else is doing, really, but what are YOU doing?
And when are you going to realise?
That if you want it?
You want to be like that, play like that, be known like that, make money like that, then at some point –
You’re going to have to ask like that.
AND LET’S JUST GET REAL HERE!
Be BRAVELY HONEST and self-assured for a moment here!
Do you, actually, truthfully, even though you feel self-conscious to admit it, think you have what it takes right now? If you were thrown onto a stage, given the chance to have millions hear you, if all of a sudden the world DID know you, do you think you have what it takes?
To hold up?
To be worthy?
I think I’m the best writer in the world.
I KNOW my words can change people’s lives in a moment.
I KNOW I am a brilliant speaker and that I could be thrown into any situation, unprepared, no matter what the event or how many watching, and NAIL it.
So when I think about –
Why I haven’t yet shared a stage –
Or BEEN seen the way I want –
Why the whole world doesn’t know my name!
I have to admit:
It’s nothing to do with my talent or skill. Baby I GOT the talent. I GOT the skill. I got the freaking CALLING, and MILLIONS should be reading, watching, being CHANGED, every day, by what I unleash.
So if that’s not happening?
It’s my fucking fault and it’s also my responsibility and it’s because I haven’t ASKED, SHOWED UP, INSISTED.
And I wonder –
What would it look like if YOU were fully pressing play?
What would you be saying today?
What would you let out right now?
What would you UNLEASH?
That you’re scared of falling on your face and what if they don’t like you and what if they hurt you and what if you hurt yourself and what if it doesn’t work and what if you DO go all in and it’s PROVEN that you don’t have what it takes!
That you doubt yourself and you wonder if you ARE good enough and sometimes you think that what YOU think about yourself and your gifts and your calling is just so.
That in your darkest times you wonder what’s the point and do you even care and will THEY ever care and maybe it’s all just a fucking FANTASY and you’re DELUSIONAL and who the hell do you think you ARE, anyway?!
I know that it’s exhausting at times, that you just want to be able to breathe but that HOW CAN YOU BREATHE when there’s so much yet to DO, so much you COULD do, so much you know you SHOULD do, but most of all MOST of all –
That you simply can’t not.
I know that you simply can’t not.
That you might toss and turn and try every which way to convince yourself you’re crazy and not yet and maybe not at all and to CALM THE FUCK DOWN but that in the end?
You’ll be who you came to be.
You’ll do what you came to do.
You can’t fight –
What you’re made of.
But here is what else I know for sure:
You might anyway.
You might fight it anyway.
You might FUCK IT THE FUCK UP ANYWAY.
What, you think that just ’cause you’re born for it, it will happen?
It doesn’t work that way.
Stop being DELUSIONAL. About whether or not you can make it? NO. About the fact that you act like you’ve even a shot in the dark at making it when you continue to show up like THIS.
It’s time to admit:
You need to run faster.
You think these goals that you set are ENOUGH? You’re barely even TRYING to think big!
You think that doing today’s work the way you will if you don’t let something SNAP from reading this, is gonna get you anywhere?!
If by anywhere you mean –
One of the crowd –
Yay for you!
Another freaking stream of booyah posts and heartfelt livestreams.
THAT’S NOT WHAT YOU CAME HERE TO DO.
THAT’S NOT WHAT’S GONNA GET YOU TO THE HEAD OF THE PACK.
And that’s not your art baby, nothing like it.
What are you going to DO?
Are you going to continue –
Like the 99.99% –
To wait and to wonder and to wish and to one day and to essentially keep swimming in a pool of those who are at the same level as you, or worse off, and repeatedly proving yourself to be ONE of them?
Are you going to vaguely imagine things you’ll do, people you’ll know, doors that will open, when you’re there, but yet continue to be HERE?
Or are you going to get your shit together?
And realise I hope with SHOCK that if you’re not asking now for PRECISELY WHAT YOU WANT and then doing exactly the uncomfortable and confronting work to get in front of the people you WANT to be in front of –
Then it’s never going to happen.
Today, throw off the BULLSHIT.
Say the thing.
Make the pitch.
Tell the world.
The cool thing with doing what’s uncomfortable and terrifying and even having the WORST HAPPEN when you do, is that if you just commit to doing it every day?
It soon becomes your norm.
It gets easy.
And do you think –
For a moment –
That if you DID IN FACT DO this, and made it your daily norm, that a year from now there just might be more people watching?
Stop kidding yourself.
You wanna be rich, you wanna be famous, you want to have it ALL and have the world watching, well you CAN.
But you’re going to have to start playing to win now.
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
