When you were born, you were a pure, true and a perfect form of a genius. But as you grew up, you let the small minds of the society convince you to dream practically and live a life like everyone else.
I need to share something immensely important with you today. This post is going to be rich with knowledge and ideas and maybe a bit longer than usual. But I promise you that the time you spend reading further will be the time you will invest for your own self to step up to your greater self.
While having my inner-reflection this morning, I decided to share this post with you; I HAD to share this today. I write this post with a single intent: to awaken you to the deepest of your self so you can live the life on your own terms + speak your own truth + live your own values. Read it all. Reflect on it.
I believe, self-discovery and personal-mastery is nothing more than knowing what values and talents you owned when you were born because you see, greatness is less about developing talents and more about exploring and discovering the talents that you already own deep down within yourself. Self-discovery and personal-mastery is a journey back to home. Greatness, in so many ways, is all about igniting and invoking the already existing fire within you.
What does the quote form Kyle Jones say?
When a child is born we believe it is his or her first entrance into life. We believe there is something to teach the newborn soul that he has a worldly purpose rather than a spiritual mission. The child is told to become a doctor, lawyer or psychologist rather than letting one’s intuition fulfill the path. This is the illusion of the world – a bunch of pure beings seeking high-paying jobs rather than soul evolution.
As a child, you were aware of all your gifts. You were a perfect being with utter purity and innocence. You were immensely creative, deeply passionate and fully alive. Your imagination had no boundaries. You dreams were limitless. You didn’t know the meaning of ‘impossible’. The world seemed to be so full of possibilities to you . Didn’t it?
You danced in the rain without worrying about anything else. You loved to paint your thoughts, just to feel the joy and not because you needed to prove something. Money or clocks didn’t govern you. You were busy being fully alive. Experiencing and enjoying each moment to its fullest. You were full of fresh new creative ideas! You were just simply boundless and infinite.
But then something happened. You committed a crime. As you grew up, you let the small minds of the society seduce your thoughts, and without even knowing it, you betrayed your true self. The society kind of hypnotized you to live the way the majority lives. The society forced you to think and speak and act like everyone else does. Like, when you went to school, you were told “dress like everyone else” “move in line” “speak what others speak” “don’t be a disruptor”.
As a result, you began to shut down your true deep beautiful feelings and started living like the majority – living in the mind – spending your day rationalizing, judging, criticizing and worrying. As you grew up, the society put a lid of limitations over your head and influenced you in many ways subconsciously.
Psychology says, by the age of three or four, the way we conduct ourselves is simply to make our mom and dad proud of us. You – without even knowing – started acting and living in an inauthentic way just for the sake of making people you love like you. When you went to school, you did the best to score good, comparing to others just to make your teacher feel proud of you. When you went at work, you delivered the best as compared to others so that your boss felt happy for you. And this comparison with others to be the best among them dulled your truest inner spirit overtime.
And without you even knowing it, the process of personal splendor began to conceal.
Key point that I want you to ponder on: What made Einstein? What made Mozart? What made Gaga? There’s one thing that they shared in common – they were disrupters. They were the originals. They didn’t let the small minds of the society convince them their dreams were so big. How? Because they had that required courage to stand alone as they all had deep self-belief.
Here’s the point, in case no one told you before: there is a genius giant within you and each and every one of us on this planet. You are a genius! A born A-player. You see, not many realize the deep potent of their lives and as a result, they pass their lives amid mediocrity. And this really breaks my heart. Please don’t be one of them. Because you’re a pure magic.
All that you are supposed to do is discover your true talents, gifts and life purpose and go all in. You’re here to succeed. I really and deeply believe that each and everyone of us on this planet is here to serve and inspire others. You are here to have an iconic impact and to create history – in your own unique and a creative way.
Stop living the sick and stifling mediocres’ life. You’re NOT here to stay average. You’re born into genius. And are here to be seriously great. If you ask me “Aditya, how to be great?” I would simply answer do what you love. Because that’s where your greatness belongs. Do you think Ronaldo would be as successful working in a science lab as he’s great playing football? What if Einstein was given a football to play as great as Messi in the field?
I hope you realize that this is the war of authenticity, audacity and integrity. This is all about being original – owning your own truth and living your values. And I want you to win at this battle. You’ve got what it takes to be and do what you want to. You already own a deep potential slumbering within you. This isn’t a philosophy but a fact.
Herman Hesse marked it so beautifully when said:
“Each man had only one genuine vocation – to find the way to himself…. His task was to discover his own destiny – not an arbitrary one – and to live it out wholly and resolutely within himself. Everything else was only a would-be existence, an attempt at evasion, a flight back to the ideals of the masses, conformity and fear of one’s own inwardness.”
Nothing will ever happen if you go back to your routine being the same person as you were before you read this. No change will take place if you don’t act to discover your values, your truth and your own voice. This is the time to go really deep within. “Self-awareness is the starting point of greatness.” Let today be the day you work on yourself.
Let go of your old self today and let your unique and original light shine bright and and let it inspire others around you. Stop living your days as a mediocre. This is your life – an autobiography and you’re the author of it. Make sure to make it epic and a masterpiece.
Stop making excuses and deliver results. Let me leave you by one of my quotes:
You’re simply an artist. To accept and settle for anything less than world-class would be a severe crime and a serious sin.
You owe it to your self to make the decision that will change your life.
You CAN do this. I’m here to help. Let’s get this done.
I believe in you and I love you.
