Recently I’ve had the awesome privilege of helping a client get her new business started. It’s called “Get Your Greatness.” I mean, how cool is that?!
I love that name. After all, isn’t that what we all want – to become the person we know we were meant to be?
I believe that inside each of us, there is a bright, shining light trying to work its way to the surface and shine onto the world around us.
But unfortunately, there are so many roadblocks in the way. We have external roadblocks like the distractions of social media, television, negative news, and advertisements that bombard us with messages that distract us from finding our light.
Then there are our own internal roadblocks that we create. We’re our own worst enemies with the limiting beliefs we hold and the stories we replay over and over in our minds. “I’m not good enough, I’m not smart enough, I’m too old, I screw everything up.”
I once had a client tell me that he had no strengths or anything in his life he could be proud of. From what I could see, he was smart, hardworking and creative. He worked full time, ran a successful business on the side, put himself through college, and graduated on the dean’s list. He did all of this at the same time!
If that’s not something to be proud of, I don’t know what is.
He had this beautiful light inside him. But it was as if his light switch was turned off, and he couldn’t find the switch to turn it on.
And as long as his light switch was turned off, he would never experience the joy of that light. Neither would the rest of the world.
I believe each of us has a bright light inside us with the power to illuminate everything around us.
But many people don’t know how to find their switch and flip it on. Imagine what the world would be like if every person found his or her light switch and turned it on. Imagine what the world could look like if we call could let our light shine brightly.
