There is a simple choice we get to make every single day when we wake up: Are we going to manifest our inner Greatness or are we going to play the victim in the situations that “happen” unto us every day? When I talk about your Greatness, I am talking about your true authentic higher Self. It is the real you that is abundant, joyful, loving, kind, generous. It is everything that would fit in the description of total perfection of your inner being. The victim in you, however, is the lower self that embodies fear, anger, worry, despair, jealousy, resentment and all the other liabilities that are like roadblocks to manifesting you true inner Greatness. So how do you manifest your Greatness? Read along, for I will reveal 5 practical ways that you can easily apply in your daily life.
#1 Simply live & live simply
Many times have I asked myself the question: “Why is Life so complicated?” I always received the answer back: “Because human beings make it so difficult…” Life was never intended to be difficult. When we live according to nature’s laws, Life becomes a simplistic flow of grace. Look at the animals, the trees, the flowers, the sky, the rain, the ocean… Everything in nature is simplified and yet so perfect and profound. It is through this simplicity that everything aligns in equality and unites in perfect harmony.
So why do we complicate things so much? Especially when it causes us such suffering among ourselves and unto others? This is a question only you can answer for yourself. It is a very personal journey through self-discovery. Personally, I believe it’s because this is how we learn. Life graced us with the incredible gift of free will. This allows us to experiment and to experience to see what works in life and what doesn’t. It gives us the opportunity to discover that our own will can only bring us thus far. If we want to g(r)o(w) further in life, we have to surrender our personal wanting in order to reach that total state of perfection which is the full manifestation of your inner Greatness.
#2 Shine your Light & leave the victim consciousness behind
I often speak during my performances about shining your inner Light. It simply means: claiming your inner Greatness. Every man, woman and child on this planet deserves to live their lives to their absolute fullest potential. Unfortunately, many live entrapped lives and suffer by their circumstances. When you decide to shine your light, you are breaking free from your old life where you felt limited. In other words, you are leaving your victim way of thinking behind. Instead of letting things happen unto you, you start making them happen for the right reasons. You do this by staying true to yourself. When you shine your light, you no longer allow yourself to suffer as a victim. You then replace your blaming and complaining for taking 100% responsibility for everything that happens to you. Even when you get into situations that you initially didn’t cause yourself. In one way or another, we attracted these situations into our lives or life gave it unto us to learn an important lesson. The truth is, it does not matter what the reason is. The only thing that truly matters is how well you handle the situation.
Shining your inner light means being your true authentic higher self. When you shine your light you are manifesting your Greatness. Imagine if we would all live our lives from this state of inner Greatness. There would be no competition, only cooperation. Because in this state of consciousness we are all returning to our original roots of nature. And in nature, everything is interconnected. When we live our lives as a victim, we disconnect from nature’s circle of oneness. We then tend to blame others for our unhappiness and we complain about all the things that are wrong in our life. But when we shine our light, we instantly switch the light on in our minds and we start seeing life as it was intended to be. We have the power to decide how long we will remain in this victim consciousness. We have the power to make the choice to shine our light from this day forward and start living the lives of our dreams right now.
#3 Be happy & Stay Positive
No matter what comes on your plate: be happy and stay positive. I can’t tell you this enough times. This principle has become my life’s motto, my philosophy, my way of living. It has saved me many times from getting sucked into negative situations that could have brought me down or limited in my life’s journey. Inevitably we are all going to experience setbacks. If there is only one thing that you will remember from this article, may it be this: all the “bad” things that happen to you are there to make you grow into the best possible version of yourself. When things get tough, that’s life pushing you to your limits. This is something you should be extremely grateful for – not complain or get frustrated about, because it means that there is more Greatness inside of you desperately waiting to get manifested. I turned it into a game for myself. Every time there is something negative coming my way, I flip it around and think of all the positive reasons why this is such a good thing happening to me. For some people it can be annoying, but I tell you, it is contagious!
#4 Break free from anything and anyone that does not support you
You deserve to be free and happy. You deserve to to live the good life. You deserve to live your life with the greatest passion. You deserve to reach your goals and dreams. Life is just too short to live it by other people’s rules and to live unhappily ever after. We need to create a support team. A support team is a network of loyal friends and superfans that support you unconditionally in everything that you do. But as we all know, life is not always sweet and rosy. You will inevitably have people and situations in your life that are not supporting your dreams at all. All those circumstances that hold you back from moving forward and growing into the best possible version of yourself become paralysing drugs that drag us through life. It is highly important to break free from this. I’m not saying walk away from your responsibilities or create an I-don’t-care attitude. Instead, find people that love you for who you are and are supportive of you no matter what. Spend more time with them and limit your time with non-supportive people. It is important to forgive those that are non-supportive. Don’t take it personal. They simply don’t understand what you are doing and they are afraid that you may not succeed because they know they certainly wouldn’t succeed at what you are doing. Just see it as their way of showing their love to you. (Remember? Be happy & stay positive 🙂 )
#5 Master your Mind
If we don’t watch our mind, it can drive us absolutely crazy. Every day we get hundreds of thousands of thoughts. It’s like the busy traffic on the road. But as soon as we start worrying we create a mental traffic jam. We get stuck, we get frustrated and sometimes even depressed. I can’t stress it enough how important it is to start mastering your mind. When you become the master instead of the victim of your mind, you will be the policemen that is regulating the traffic in your head. You will be the one in charge that will decide which thought will enter and which one needs to be averted into the other direction. Thoughts are extremely powerful, but you are more powerful when you are in control over them. You can then direct your thoughts and start creating the life that you desire.
