Expecting the outstanding life
Expecting the outstanding life while trying to fit in is a sure fire recipe for failure, struggle and unhappiness.
When you REALLY think about it, it’s obvious that the only way to REALLY experience the outstanding is by literally… well… standing out!
That doesn’t mean you have to be a raging extrovert, an attention seeker or someone who wants to hog the limelight.
Far from it, in fact.
But what it DOES mean is that your most important decisions about who you are going to be as you walk this Earth throughout the days of your life are best made by standing OUTSIDE of the definitions, expectations, shoulds, musts and have-to’s of others.
Not because the others have it all wrong.
And not because they all mean you harm or have ill intentions for you.
But because happiness can only truly be experienced through freedom, because you only know you are free because you have the ability to choose and because you only TRULY choose when your options are made from a position of “given who I most want to be in life, what would serve ME most right now?”
Want the outstanding life?
Then set yourself free of the need to fit in and in doing so, you’ll set yourself free in the bigger sense too.
And THAT is outstanding!
Truth, joy and love
P.S – if you WANT to be an extrovert, attention seeker who hogs the limelight, that’s ok too. Just make sure you’re doing it because it serves you and sets you free rather than because you feel you have to impress others.
