Do you feel you are not living up to your full potential?
You are not alone.
I’ve been there, and so have many others.
Whether it’s our upbringing or just where our decisions in life have taken us, there will come a time where you may feel like you are not living your full inner greatness.
We’ll I am here to tell you that this is not true and show you how to unlock your inner greatness simply by becoming aware of it.
You ARE living your purpose, right now, at this very moment in time. You are exactly where you should be even though you may not feel like it.
Here’s 3 steps to take to become aware of and unleash your inner greatness. Ready? Lets jump right in…
Step 1. Take a Deep Breath
The first step you can take right now is to just take a deep breath. Yup, just take a deep breath in and out.
How does that feel?
By breathing you are centering yourself in the present moment. Take a few more deep breathes and focus on just the breath going in and out of your body.
Don’t overthink this, just do it.
You should start to notice your body relax a bit, if not, that’s ok too don’t force it.
Now think for a moment about what you just did.
Your body can breathe on its own without you controlling it. But at this very moment you took over, turned off auto-pilot, and took control of your life, literally!
If you stopped your breathing long enough, you already know the outcome.
You’re in control of that outcome, you can choose how to breathe, yet at the same time you can put it back on autopilot.
This is the power of choice and you have it every day.
Step 2. Know WHAT you’re made of
There is unimaginable greatness within you. When I say greatness I mean supreme and utter power beyond your imagination.
For a second, just think of an atomic bomb.
We all know how powerful those can be right?
A hydrogen bomb has the power of 10,000,000 tons of TNT by the splitting of a single atom.
Ponder that for a moment….10 Million Tons of TNT energy…1 atom.
Ok thats a lot of power, but what am I getting at?
Well if a single atom can do that much, did you know that for a typical human weighing 154 pounds, there are almost 7 x 1027 atoms (that’s a 7 followed by 27 zeros!) Another way of saying this is “seven billion billion billion” atoms. 1
So inside you is potentially the power of over seven billion billion billion atomic bombs. I’m no scientist, but that’s a lot of energy all flowing through you at this very moment.
Feeling great yet? If not let’s jump into the final step…
Step 3: Know WHO you really are
The final step is to just know who you are.
When I say WHO you are I don’t mean your name, your job position, or who you think you are. I mean who you actually are.
You are the essence of all that there is and ever was.
You are the creator and the created all in one.
You are everything, and everything is you.
This may be a hard pill to swallow.
This trips up a lot of people depending on your beliefs, religion, or culture.
But the truth is in every major religion or culture this has been discussed in some form or another. From Christianty, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and many others including scientific research from the worlds top minds.
Whatever you choose to believe is your choice (remember step 1?).
But if you realize that you are more than just the body you control everyday you will find greatness.
You are more than your circumstances.
You are more than your job, career or business.
You are more than your illness, sickness or heartaches.
You are everything. You are great.
THAT is WHO you are.
And there is nothing, in my humble opinion, greater than you.
