In 13th century Scotland there was a freedom fighter named William Wallace.
In a time when most people in Scotland were willing to settle, Wallace wanted more for himself and for his people. Getting there was something that probably seemed impossible, to win freedom from a ruthless king probably seemed insurmountable.
Read in this inspiring post from Kimanzi Constable, how he turned his life around and stopped to settle for something that was below his real potential.
I noticed that I’m pretty close to living my dream right now. I have the woman and family of my dreams, I do what I love, I earn enough, I live where I want to live. And all in all I’m feeling pretty good.
It wasn’t always like this, especially not when I was a teenager. So I made quite some transformation in my life.
And I’m thankful for that. Because I know that there is only one constant in our universe. And that is change.
In this guest-post Jorge Blanco writes: “The very first time I found myself determined to achieve a goal was during my teenage years when I wanted to go to Japan and study Computer Science there.
It was the biggest dream for me at the time and I was able to achieve it.
But after a year, I suddenly realized I wasn’t feeling as elated as I imagined I would be. I felt lost and empty…”
I’m going to be a father very soon. It will be two girls – so you can imagine how excited I am.
I took some time to reflect and think about how I would like to be as a father. What kind of advice can I give to my kids to help them in their life? What insights did I make, sometimes painfully, sometimes with joy, that I want to pass on to my kids?
Think about it…
If you have kids (or want to have kids), what one lesson would want them to learn from you?
I always found that being inspired is the best state to be in. Being inspired leads to inspired action and has some kind of magic to it. It seems to go directly to the point. It always seems to be right.
You are able to see things much more clearly. You are getting the right ideas, the right input. And you do good.
The state of being inspired means to be in connection with your spirit, your higher self. It “whispers” you your way.
But how can you not feel the connection to your spirit?
One of the many good suggestions I got from you as a reply to my last newsletter was the topic of not feeling worthy enough. So I thought I’ll take the topic of worthiness and show that at the core, which is what matters, you are 100% worthy of everything you can dream of.
The feeling of not being good enough or even inadequate can act as a very self-limiting belief, which would be like a self-fulfilling prophecy: It (you) will always get in your own way. On the other side, knowing that you are enough for what you want in your life is as important for your success as it could get.
Many people consider art just some ornament in our lives. OK, it can be entertaining, too, but they don’t see it as a necessary ingredient that can sometimes even be life-saving. I know people from different countries who stayed sane after wars in their country only thanks to books they practically devoured, while bombs and shootings roared in the background. I know people whose day becomes bright after they hear a certain song. The moment I hear happy sounds of the music of the 80’s, my soul starts dancing.
