There is nothing I admire more, than someone who has undeniable confidence in who they are and what they bring to the table. There’s just something so appealing about someone who can walk into a room and own the scene, with a gangsta lean, ZERO FUCKS GIVEN 😎😂
Though I have a great respect for my unapologetically dope folks, this here is for all of those who feel they need to dim their light so that the glare of their shine doesn’t offend those who choose to sit in the dark.
If this is you, I want to encourage you to embrace that ish in a major way. You are talented, accomplished, brilliant, innovative, funny AF, LOVED, humble, unique and a host of other things that some people around you may never be. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t live your dopeness out loud 😃.
CELEBRATE THAT SHIT!!!
If you’re surrounded by people who don’t support the Queen/King in you, or at the very least, aspire to do/be better themselves, exit stage left and find your tribe. No need in wasting all of your gifts on people who are choosing to be stuck. Or worse, trying to drag you to the pits of lame hell with them.🙄😒
Limiting all that you are, to make others feel comfortable could be damning to you in the process. Think of all the opportunities you’ll get. All of the growth you could experience. The connections you could make. The next level you could take your business to. The quality of living you could acquire...all by choosing to step out of the mediocre shadows and into your purpose...your greatness and innate God given ability to be dope 😁
If you’re struggling with believing in yourself enough to detach from a marginalized mentality, here‘s some small yet effective things I want you to try to help make that leap of faith easier:
Compare the life you have, to the life that you want on a sheet of paper.
On the same sheet of paper, list what is getting in the way of you living in your purpose.
Once you’ve figured out what’s holding you back, make It a priority to rid yourself of those limitations. If it’s people holding you back, limit your interactions with them. If it’s a toxic work environment, start devising an exit strategy. If it’s YOU, invest in coaching or therapy so that someone can help you get out of your own way.
Develop a mantra that you can repeat to yourself every single day that is uplifting and encouraging.
Look yourself in the mirror and repeat these words, “You’re Dope, and I love you”. Say that shit until you mean it.
“Do your thing and don’t care if they like it” ~Tina Fey~
Theres not a soul on God’s green earth that was created without a gift. We all have a light that shines deep within. Question is...When are you gonna allow that light to shine through?
