You are exceptional. I recently heard Deepak Chopra say: your body is literally made out of stardust. Can you hear the whoa-ness of that?
You are LITERALLY made out of stardust.
In this moment, your very presence is making the world exactly what it is. Without you, the universe would be different.
So it bears repeating: You are exceptional.
How will you honour your exceptionality?
People come to coaching because they have seen a glimmer of what could (might?) be. A divine whisper of "you can".
Often times, we ignore it. Largely because we can't trust it. It's too crazy. Haven't you been stockpiling all the reasons you "can't" your whole life? Why yes, I do believe you have.
And yet, there is something about the whisper that compels you. You keep coming back to it.
That's because it is the TRUTH, my friend.
And in that truth is a vision. YOUR vision. The one that you can barely name. The one that makes your heart expand and your toes tingle just thinking about it. So you don't.
But there's that whisper again. "You can".
So you tentatively consider the "how" and that shuts you down again. Because it's too much. This vision takes work. That's another truth: THIS VISION TAKES WORK. There are requirements expected of you. You must define your vision. You must see it. Feel it. Taste it. Trust it. Move towards it. Be obedient to it.
What magic happens when you honour you vision by naming, owning and obeying it? A light will beam from your heart, illuminating a path for you, rendering the "how" insignificant. Because you are getting there.
You will start to notice that you are now on a new path. One you don't recognize. One that has no others' footprints. That's to be expected.
No one has been on THIS path before. No one has your very iteration. Oh yes, there may be points along the path that merge with others, and frankly there is comfort there. In fact, there may be times where intentionally switching back to the beaten path is the right call. Like slipping into your favourite worn jeans. The ones that know your curves so well. The homeness of the experience. Rest here. Recharge here.
Then get back out there, machete in hand forging ahead with the searchlight emanating from your heart. Your vision awaits.
You can, and you will. Because you are exceptional.
