Today’s focus on authenticity is for the brave and courageous. No doubt you have heard the saying that 80% of the world is asleep and that the other 20%… Well, they see the world differently, experience different things and have a different experience of life. It is even said that they may see colors differently. This is because those 20% live on the edge and live authentically.
How do you join the 20% and play to the beat of a different drummer? You begin by forgetting everything you have been taught. You let go of all of the things that you think you should hold on to and you examine and question everything you believe in and live by. You let everything go so that you are left with everything you are.
When you clear your slate this way it leaves you room to see things anew and begins to tap you into the vision that the 20% have. You realize that someone cutting you off and taking your parking space is only insulting when you believe it is. When you have vision, your clear slate frees you up to see this experience from different angles and different eyes. You see that your energy isn’t worth the emotional charge of being angry at someone you don’t know; you see that being insulted can only happen when you allow it, since you get to be empowered enough to choose your response. A clean slate creates a clear perception. A clear perception is like opening several phone lines and listening to more than your own experience. Suddenly you realize that the person who cut you off is telling you a lot about themselves. Life is suggesting a different parking space, perhaps providing you a synchronistic experience elsewhere. No, the 20% don’t bother with such insignificant things. Instead they save their energy for what is truly important.
Yes, the 20% choose their lives. They define who they are and they and choose their experiences. They are not victims to whom life happens, but rather co-creators.
Free yourself of what you think you are supposed to be and do. Free yourself of your own feelings of entitlement, of being wronged, of judgement or any other negativity. These are the real prisons of life that hold us back and keep us in the rat race. Engaging in such behaviors are what make us like anyone else and guarantee our place in the 80%.
When you are living a life of freedom and authenticity you begin to make plans in your life, plans that you know life will support. You begin to find intention and purpose in your life and these are so pronounced that you even find them in the small corners of life. When your focus is greater this way, you are being brave and courageous enough to be who you truly are and that authenticity begins to change your world so that you too are seeing a different set of colors.
