Are you living an authentic and extraordinary life? In service of something greater than yourself?
Be bold, be adventurous, live life on your terms, be uncompromising and authentic. Devote yourself to something with everything that you have, work super hard, believe in yourself, stick to what you believe in, refuse to compromise, move forward in face of all obstacles, have faith, have the courage to be bold and to make a statement, to stand tall and say this who I am.
The comfort zone is not your friend – Robin Arzon.
To truly be happy and satisfied with life we must help others, serve our fellow man. That is the key.
It is easy to keep doing what you are doing, the rut is easy. Change, improvement, growth; those things are difficult but they are the purpose of life.
We have developed into a world where it has become socially acceptable to do what your told, to shut up, to be a good consumer, go to the mall, drive your car, buy stuff, go to the movies, play video games, eat fast food, anything that will numb you from doing the inside work of finding out what makes you the only you there is.
Investing in your intuition, blazing your own path, these things are daunting. It might be the hardest thing you can imagine doing, like a salmon swimming upstream or setting sail in a stormy sea with a canoe without a paddle.
But it can be the opposite of daunting and difficult. If we perceive it as less about struggle and more about letting go, like a shedding of an old skin, less about fighting but more about surrender, a falling into who you really are. That is what faith is all about, being comfortable that the perilous canoe will carry you in the current of your true life purpose and when the sea settles you find yourself no longer struggling but riding a current effortlessly with your name on it, your personal life purpose. Surrender doesn’t mean giving up, but can be the path to victory. Releasing rather than holding on is the way to become more fully expressed and incredibly powerful.
