Things change so rapidly now. 100 years from now no matter what you do and who you are, there is a very high chance that people won’t remember your name.
The truth is – you are not that important at all. Not only no one will remember your name, no one really cares much about you and what you do now.
You are not important. If you disappear now, the world will still go on. Some will cry but they will forget and move on much quicker than you think.
Your existence doesn’t matter.
Life is short. Time flies. When it’s over, it’s over. We won’t talk about life after death here.
Who you are and what you do doesn’t matter.
This is the truth.
Scary? Maybe. Liberating? For sure!
How often are we afraid to do what we want to do or be who we want to be just because others won’t approve, or it is too uncomfortable, or we gotta do this job first, or because there is sure still plenty of time left. Guess what, none of that matter. Because you are not that important and no one cares.
And also, no, you don’t have that much time left. I don’t recommend worrying about that now, but still.
No one will remember you in 100 years.
Does it really matter now if you do that job or go to that appointment or write your next blog post? No, nothing matters.
Besides one little thing.
You being You
You allowing yourself to be who you are. You stepping into your Greatness and doing what brings you joy. You finding your True bold dreams and going after them .
No one will remember anyway. You might as well stop trying to fit in, stop striving, stop pushing , stop being a victim of circumstances and just allow yourself to be YOU and do what YOU want to do and what makes your soul sing.
Being yourself is the only thing you can do to make a difference. This is the truth too. And it will liberate you. The True You.
Let go of everything that doesn’t feel right.
Start that business you always dreamed of starting. Yes, I know your business plan is not ready and your spouse doesn’t approve and you simply don’t know much about starting a business. Start anyway. Now.
Talk about your outrageous dream out loud even though others might laugh. Your outrageous dream doesn’t have to be to save the world. It might be very trivial, everything is relative. But it is Your dream. Dare to claim it. Dare to commit to it.
Ask that girl on a date. Yes, she might reject you, but who cares. No one will remember little unimportant you anyway.
Forget the rules. No sex on the first date? Don’t have sex just for the sake of breaking the rules, but have it if it feels right.
Leave that relationship that doesn’t support your Vision. It might be uncomfortable; it might be inconvenient, but how liberating!
If you go with your True Self, you cannot go wrong. Because everything your True Self wants is aligned with Love. And Love never goes wrong.
How to embrace the truth and reinvent Yourself
Don’t be afraid to start over. Rewrite your story. Start a new business if the old one doesn’t resonate with who you are. Rewrite your message. I am changing blog’s URL because my old one just doesn’t fit my Authentic Vision. Yes, I am used to the old one, I tried hard to make it fit what I want to do, I tried to make my Authentic Vision to align with it (you don’t align your Vision with what you do, you align what you do with your Vision, see the difference?), I am likely to lose subscribers and I have 250 pretty business cards printed with the old URL.
So what? Living the truth is worth it.
I took down the product and cancelled the membership program I had few months ago cutting down a substantial part of my income at the time because they didn’t resonate with who I was . I stopped working on a business that just didn’t bring me joy.
Change is scary. Face your fears and do it anyway. It is scarier to stay stuck where you don’t belong.
I got my first client within a week of starting my new coaching program. I actually was afraid I overpriced it but people saw value and I could deliver what promised. The feeling I get doing what is aligned with who I am is incredible. The feeling I get seeing my clients’ a-ha moments when they “get clear” is unbelievable. It’s great to be useful. Change turned out to be not as scary as I thought it would be.
Find your Core. Find what is true to you. What brings you joy? What do you love doing the most? What are you great at? Start doing it. The more, the better.
Ask. If not sure where to start, ask yourself – How can I do it, where do I start? And then go about your day knowing that your True Self will send you the answer. It always does. Just let go and listen. Once you hear it, don’t ignore. Write it down. See how you can act on it.
Trust. Have faith. Allow the Universe to provide. Stop stressing out about “how”. “How” is not your problem. It will come when you have faith.
Remember, the only thing you really want is to be yourself. This is your life’s purpose – be Yourself, live Your dreams, sing Your song.
This is the truth. And it does set you free if you let it.
