Play It Safe and Survive — Is That Enough?

Hot Air balloon2
DECIDE to follow your DREAMS

“You can play it safe, and I wouldn’t blame you for it.
You can continue as you’ve been doing, and you’ll survive, but is that what you want? Is that enough?”
~~ J.M. Darhower

You’re an infinite being.
Your potential is infinite.

Why would you merely survive and crimp your infinite outrageous potential?

Let’s put it this way, what would you be doing if you were guaranteed success in all that you do?

If that inspires you, then let’s do something magnificent, something that makes you live large and feel fabulous!

BUT understand this… you can’t get to your new destination by following an old path.

You’re going to be traveling some uncharted territory.
This will be new for you, right?
It’s going to be unfamiliar, so you’re going to probably feel uneasy.
Discomfort is part of the adventure.

Embrace it.

Most people run at the first sign of discomfort.
Embracing your discomfort is noble.
It means you’re a courageous pioneer – of your own life.

The first step if you want to do something new is to make a DECISION.

Nothing happens without a DECISION and a decision comes BEFORE the “HOW” shows up.

Most people wait their whole life for the RIGHT HOW and RIGHT TIME.

They never live their dream.
The RIGHT HOW and RIGHT TIME never come.

Do this instead:
When you have a dream or discover a new opportunity ask yourself a simple question, “Does this make me feel excited?”
If it’s a YES, that’s all you need.

DECIDE… right here, right now. “I am doing it.”

You may feel a little scared, and that’s a good sign because it means you’re moving into something new.
We THRIVE on new experiences.

Making decisions is scary when we first start but it’s the ONLY WAY to create your dream.
Nothing happens without a DECISION.

Your dream and that you have it is no coincidence; it’s vital you start moving into living it.

One of the reasons the world is filled with sadness and depression is because people suppress their dreams and crimp their potential; suppression is another reason for illness.

The way to be happy, healthy and young is to DECIDE to follow your dreams and continually evolve and grow.

The SAFEST thing you can do is move forward into what you want!

Survival is not impressive, it’s not safe… choose to THRIVE!!!

You Are The Way You Are For A Reason

SnoopySociety tries to dictate who we ought to be, how we ought to look, what we wear, what we say and so on.

This causes us to aim to be like everyone else and fit in.

There’s no doubt it takes courage to step out of the herd mentality and follow the beat of your own drum but really and truly…
everything else is a lie.

You may feel different to others, you may feel you’re not interesting enough, not good enough, you may feel no-one understands you.
You may feel
___(fill in the blank)__.

The truth is you don’t have to BE anything other than what you are.

You’re already wonderful!

What’s happening is that we naturally seek fuller expression of ourselves.

What’s beautiful about how you feel and the way you are right now, is that these things drive you into new directions so you express YOU more fully, have new experiences and do things you’ve never done before.

We’re always seeking to be better… we naturally seek MORE.

This is all perfect. Why?

Because your soul has a fundamental
desire to do things it’s never done before.
Your soul LOVES GROWTH
!

That’s the adventure of life!
The buzz… there’s nothing quite like it!

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk
it took to blossom.”
~~ Anaïs Nin

Your soul is hungry for new experiences.
Your soul gains wisdom from new experiences.
That’s priceless because you carry wisdom into all eternity.
This is why doing something new FEELS SO GOOD!

You are the way you are for a reason.

Love the way you are because if you allow yourself to be you, you’ll naturally move into what’s right for you.

You’re happiest and most successful when you’re growing…
and especially when growing in ways ideal for YOU.

Say YES to Being the STAR of Your Life!

STEP UP & DO WHAT YOU LOVE
STEP UP & DO WHAT YOU LOVE

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
~~ William Shakespeare

If that’s true, have you asked yourself the role you’re playing and who wrote your script?

Sadly, it most likely wasn’t you.

Few people know to write out their own script and participate fully in their own movie.

Most people are extras in other people’s movies!

There’s no fun in that.

This is where life is simple. All you need to do is understand a few fundamentals.

Here is the NUMBER ONE fundamental to understanding life:

You’re designed to create and live a life YOU love and to star CENTRE STAGE.

That’s it.

If you’re not creating your own life that then deep down you may feel the following:

  • Hollow
  • Empty
  • Dissatisfied
  • Frustrated
  • Angry
  • Depressed

Do you feel any of that?

So, why do so many people NOT create their life and instead live as an extra in someone else’s movie?

Again it’s simple. Culturally our “role” is programmed into us i.e. to put others first, make others happy and do what our family and society expect of us.

That programming is false but it’s SO deep, we have no idea we’ve been programmed.
People will even defend these rules as if they created them!

I write so many articles about this because we need to hear this “outrageous alternative” over and over before anything shifts.

You believed that old, false programming because it was passed down for generations; it’s in your genetics.
Then it was drummed into you daily for decades; it surrounds you environmentally.

Notice the technique? Repetition.

If repetition installed the old programming, why not use that same technique to re-program you for TRUTH!

You’re designed to live a life you love.

Science even backs this up for those who fear this new concept, but for most people this does ring true somehow, even if it sounds scary!

So, where to now? Okay, let the fun begin!

The fun is in creating the story YOU want.

Step 1.
Are you willing to contemplate what you want?

That’s the “hardest” part.

Most people are not willing to dream, which means no surprises if nothing changes.

Look at your story. Look at your life right now. Look at your results.

Are you happy with them?

Let’s play.

If you had ALL the time, money and resources what would you change, remove, or add to this story to make it more fabulous or exactly what you want?

Don’t tell anyone once you’ve done that!

I mean it. If you’ve dreamed something new and awesome for you, then you CAN HAVE it. But most people don’t have this information.

They’ll destroy your dream in a nanosecond by saying you’re nuts.

So keep it to yourself for now and hold it to you like a treasure.

Step 2: Imagine you’re already living this story.
What would you be doing every day?
If you could have what you want (and you can) what’s the first step you’d take to make it happen?

Step 3: Your first few actions will be obvious to you, if you’re open to see them.
Start taking action, even if it’s one new action a week.

Step 4: Look for the next action, once those actions are done. It will be revealed.

You’ll keep moving forward until one day suddenly you’re living the life you imagined.

It’s your story and you are the STAR : )

How to Leave Behind Pain and Embrace Freedom

WHERE WILL IT TAKE YOU?
WHERE WILL IT TAKE YOU?

Challenges bring opportunities.
There’s no question about that.

There’s also no question it’s hard to
“embrace” a challenge or problem by yelling, “Yay, an opportunity!”

The essence of who you are always wants freedom.

You’re always naturally seeking expansion, fuller expression – of who you truly are.

When you allow yourself to grow you’re at your happiest because your soul thrives on adventure.

But most of us shrink back because adventure means CHANGE!

Why do we fear change?

Change takes us into the unknown; new experiences. The new, the unknown is unpredictable.

“Unpredictable” is too dangerous and uncomfortable for a human being who is focused on survival, so they pull back to safety.

We’ve been programmed since childhood to “survive”.

But remember our true essence desperately wants the majestic adventure and we’re shrinking back saying no.

“I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”
~~ Thomas Jefferson

You can only suppress you for so long.

This day-in-day out, week-in-week out continual suppression and denial brings enormous pain, frustration, anger, depression, anxiety and boredom.

There comes a time when the pain is so great you’ll be willing to say YES, grab the opportunity and leap into the unknown.

There you’ll discover the magic of the adventure and FREEDOM, PEACE, JOY… THE REAL YOU.

It’s time to shine your splendid light.

You’re ready for the grandest life and no-one will ever again be able to put out your light.

Why… You’re Worth It!

DIFFERENCE IS PRETTY GOOD
DIFFERENCE IS PRETTY GOOD

Do you compare yourself to others?

Do you feel you’re not good enough, that no matter how hard you try you never quite measure up?

That’s you? Well, thank goodness for that!

You’re not perfect.

I’ve realized I wouldn’t want perfection because what then, would be the purpose of life?

There’s no-one quite like you and fortunately there never will be…

…so how could you EVER compare yourself to anyone else?

BUT the beautiful little secret is…
…you can always become BETTER!

All humans naturally seek expansion and greater freedom. The adventure of life TRULY BEGINS when you allow yourself that.

“We are all living in cages with the doors wide open.” ~~ George Lucas

Remember your FREE WILL?

This means you can “BE” whoever you want to be.

Free will means there’s never any judgement. Imagine what you’d achieve if you never judged yourself!

This means you don’t have to WAIT until you’re perfect before becoming better (and oh boy does the human race love a good reason to “wait”).

Choose to move forward NOW.

Tell yourself, “I am worth it and I’m becoming an even BETTER version of ME!”

Let’s look at nature

If nature’s not evolving what’s it doing? You got it, it’s dying.

And that’s the same with us.

What’s another word for evolving?

Yes, CREATING!

Unless you’re creating, you’re disintegrating. You’re a natural-born creator who right now isn’t even close to your true potential.

You’re more powerful and magnificent than you can imagine

I love that I am not even close to perfection because it’s been such a blast evolving this far. Believe me, I wasn’t born loving myself!!!

I’m so grateful to have discovered the truth about life because now I’m loving the adventure and living my dream. The pace picks up each day and the opportunities continue to grow.

It’s awesome! Please allow yourself to join me!!!

Did you know DISSATISFACTION is in fact a powerful, creative state?

Agreed, always be grateful for what you have and who you are, but always strive to be even BETTER.

You’re starting to see a theme here I can tell : )

Have you noticed how the things you PROCRASTINATE about are those exact things that would directly benefit and enrich you?

Why the hesitancy? Because you don’t think you’re good enough or worthy of having something wonderful.

If you’re still making sure everyone else is happy before you say YES…

… if you aren’t doing what’s right for you first and foremost, then you haven’t yet understood the reasons for loving yourself first.

Why did I ensure the first chapter in my book was about loving yourself?

Because everything stems from whether you think you’re worth the investment or not.

Once you’re willing to see you’re NOT SELFISH by loving yourself first, you’ll more easily start taking action on your dreams.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”  ~~ E.E. Cummings

BONUS:

You’ll stay younger and find things such as radiant health and being your ideal weight becoming a natural by-product.

Place the following sentence on your mirror and say it to yourself every day:

Say, “Listen here __(your name)__… you are precious, special and amazing… and I LOVE you.”

You’ll probably feel silly.

As ridiculous as it sounds it does take a little courage. Some people said they started crying when they said it.

I know you’re precious and I know you’re worth it!

GO FOR IT!
