Day 2 of 7: Treasure Map Passions

PASSION

I’m fascinated by the things I cannot see, but that I absolutely, undeniably know exist without a shadow of a doubt.

Love. It takes over my heart like a warm blanket. There’s nothing better.

The feeling I get inside when I hear a beautiful song. I can’t explain it, but I am moved. Undeniably awakening.

Maybe that’s why I love the internet so much.

Yes, I may only be writing, or making videos, or posting on Instagram, but there’s so much more going on than what meets the eye

That level of communication with the world is beautiful. It’s fascinating to me.

I sat at dinner with two good friends tonight, and we each went around the table trying to identify what that “thing” for each of us is that we’re particularly good at. That “thing” that we can apply, no matter the industry or situation. The “thing” that makes us .. us.

She said that my “thing” is putting myself out there.

It comes so naturally and easily to me.

It doesn’t matter what it is that I am doing, or expressing.

My magic sauce is the ease at which I put myself out there.

Maybe she’s right.

I love communicating with people from all over the world.

I love reaching out.

I love seeing what I can find.

I love having an impact, no matter how small.

And using the power of the internet and social media seems like the easiest way for me to reach out.

It’s a funny thing to say you’re passionate about putting yourself out there, but I am. I love it.

There’s so much creativity involved in putting yourself out there. It has become somewhat of an art form for me. My online presence has become an artistic expression of myself.

If, by putting myself out there, I can help encourage one person to live life on their terms, I’m happy.

And so that’s what I do. Day in, day out.

I guess if there is *one* thing that I’ve always followed – it’s my passion.

Because life is so boring otherwise.

If I’m not passionate about it … what’s the point?

I follow my passions like they are my treasure map. And I hope to inspire people along the way to do the same.

How to overcome self-doubt

6:3 - fb g+

Do you ever doubt yourself? If so, you are not alone. Doubt bubbles up in ALL of us, some more than others. I can’t tell you how many influential, inspiring, and successful people I have met who doubt themselves. We feel as though we aren’t good enough, we wonder if we’ll ever really “make it”, we question ourselves and our own integrity, we feel like imposters, and we feel like fakes.

Today I want to share with you a very powerful way to eliminate doubt from your life.

Because doubt drastically affects your energy field. And your energy field, believe it or not, is what’s communicating with the Universe on a daily basis, and it’s what attracts your each and every life experience. So your state of being really matters. And there’s zero room for doubt if you want to succeed.

What I’ve come to realize is that it’s up to us to eliminate that fear and doubt from our minds whenever it pops up. And it’s 100% doable.

How do you do this, though? How do you eliminate thoughts that seem so real, and so permanent?

Here’s the secret: You just DECIDE.

Decide that you will not let your fear and self-doubt get in the way of being the best you that there ever was. Decide that you will keep chasing that dream of yours, day in, day out no matter what. Decide that you are destined for greatness. Decide that the Universe does, actually, have your back.

Say it out loud:

“I DECIDE THAT I AM DESTINED FOR GREATNESS”

FEEL IT throughout your entire body as you say it:

“I DECIDE THAT I WILL NOT LET FEAR OR SELF-DOUBT GET IN MY WAY. I DECIDE TO BE CONFIDENT AND DECISIVE.”

Whenever I’m feeling down in the blues, doubting myself, and my abilities, after I make the decision to put an END to the doubt, I do this for double confirmation:

I pretend that God has come down and told me that I was destined for greatness, without a shadow of a doubt. I pretend that he has come down and given me full permission to shine my brightest, and that he’s given me a glimpse into my future that confirms all of today’s every desire.

“Make a choice. Just decide what it’s gonna be, who you’re gonna be, how you are going to do it. Just decide. And from that point, the universe will get out of your way.” – Will Smith

The power of an internal decision to JUST BELIEVE is incredible. It totally eliminates the fear, it doesn’t allow for it to exist, because you’ve made the decision that no matter what you WILL be successful.

With love and hugs and full belief in you and your dreams,
Alex
