We’re not taught to think for ourselves.
We’re taught to do as we’re told, listen, learn and regurgitate all of this so we can fit into society…acceptably.
We’re taught to keep safe, not to rock the boat, please others above ourselves.
And for a while this can work, or at least it seems to on a surface level.
But I bet, if you sat very still and got really quiet, right now, you know there has always been a niggle inside, that perhaps there could be more to this life than this.
And that niggle is in fact the reason you don’t sit still very often, and if you do you try to distract yourself with tv, food, booze, or whatever it might be for you.
And at some point, if you haven’t reached it already, your true self, so suffocated by your conditioned self, will start to show you signs that you can’t live a lie anymore.
Things will start breaking down, hurting or become too difficult to ignore.
If there is something out of integrity in your life right now, or how you’re running your business, the signs will be there.
They always have been. You’ve just been conditioned to ignore them.
But they start getting louder and louder and harder to ignore.
A tap that turns to a knock, to a thump, until one day you hit the wall.
Illness, burnout, exhaustion, apathy, wanting to give it all up and work in Starbucks.
All signs you are not in integrity ~ You are not being true to your true self.
You’re favouring society over self.
And that is not a sustainable life or business plan.
And whilst this may please others it is not pleasing you.
You know it, I know it and this my invitation to your true self, to finally change it ~ to start living a life aligned to your true self and experience the joy, peace and fulfilment that can bring you.
Let your truth be your compass..always ?
