Society 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 herdmentality and follow the beat of your own drum but reallyand truly… … everything else is a lie.
You may feel different to others, you may feel you’re notinteresting enough, not good enough, you may feel no-oneunderstands 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 todo 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 arefor 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.
Your mind is the most powerful and creative tool known to man.
What I say in my book is that quantum physicists have discovered you control energy and turn it into matter. YOU DECIDE what matter it will become — you do that with your thoughts.
You do choose your reality. How awesome.
But, are you brave enough to go for what you truly want? Most people are not.
Learn today how you get the courage to allow your true power.

What if You’re Denying the Power of Your Mind
In reason #1 of this series I suggested creating a worthwhile goal – one that’s fun, outrageous, exciting – one that will cause you to grow and evolve.
When you understand the power of your mind, you’ll understand why you can create an awesome goal and have no idea HOW you’ll achieve it.
However, such goals take you out of your comfort zone which is scary enough, but ALSO they often require you to have the courageto break free from the herd mentality and become a confident leader of your own life.
What does leaving behind the herd mentality mean?
You no longer conform to the hidden rules of society
You leave behind the need for acceptance and approval
You risk disapproval from others (initially)
You risk losing certain people in your life (which allows new inspiring people to enter)
You may be called crazy (initially)
You may be called selfish (initially)
You’ll start making your own decisions – most people battle with this one
You’ll stop asking permission – yay!
You’ll shine brighter, you’ll get noticed — this freaks many people who feel it’s safer to stay hidden or risk rejection
You start living and speaking your truth — showing others who you really are. Most people consider this too dangerous.
You need faith to jump and build your wings on the way!
We all know when we’re perceived as “different” there’s a potential for backlash, so anytime you choose to move on from mainstream thinking, that’s what you risk. It’s usually self-inflicted but it seems to be coming from others (another story for another time).
Most people wear the mask of success — do you?
Even if you have a burning desire to do something special in life, you feel you can’t so you abandon your dream and pretend to be someone else. You toe the line by putting on a mask, by appearing successful, fun-loving and easy-going.
You stay ultra busy to distract yourself from your real feelings, your real desires.
Deal with it or it’ll catch up with you
But your feelings inside do not go away – they eventually catch up with you.
If you don’t deal with it you may turn to alcohol, plastic surgery, spending on fancy clothes, furniture, gamble or even drugs, which destroy brain cells (and when you no longer have a fully functioning brain it makes changing and healing a tough job).
Or you distract yourself with Facebook, YouTube, email, television or video games.
I’m sure all this sounds familiar. All these options are often the path of least resistance, but they take you further way from happiness. Each time you need more to get your original reward or “high”.
This is an addiction — to things outside of you.
It becomes unsustainable. Emptiness, loneliness, frustration, anger and bitterness start to multiply.
The truth is real joy only comes from the inside & from being the real you.
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
~~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
… THE REAL YOU to shine through. Allow yourself to sit still for five minutes this week.
Ask yourself, “How do I really feel?”
Start studying the power of the mind
Start discovering the truth about real happiness and how to create it
Hint: happiness is the result of growing, evolving – best done by creating that outrageous goal and remembering you can only make you happy – it comes from inside not from outside
Start learning how to exercise your free will. You’ll learn this helps everyone.
“You don’t get harmony when everybody sings the same note.”
~~ Doug Floyd
Start using repetition by using this knowledge to reprogram your subconscious mind and raise your frequency. Whatever is in your subconscious mind is law and creates your results. See Reason #3 for more on repetition.
1. Initially you’ll be planting a seed of free will in your subconscious mind.
2. With every embrace and repetition of the knowledge, the seed grows and forms stronger roots.
3. This changes your entire vibration and you’ll start behaving differently, you’ll naturally become ready to take action to live your dream, and you’ll care less about what others think.
And what’s next?
Knowledge and repetition SET YOU UP PERFECTLY for creating what you want in your life.
Thinking into Results gives you the knowledge and the repetition to raise your frequency to create what you want.
Statistics show your results skyrocket with support and encouragement. Close the gap between what you’ve learned (what you know and are tempted to use) and your behavior (what you do) so you can get the results you want and deserve.
