What do you know about this adjective for do-ability?
There are those that hear the word and negativity and an aversion to aggressiveness are instantly evoked. While others immediately get excited by the mere thought of adding this element to their arsenal of next level strategies.
Which are you?
Keep in mind, there is no right or wrong answer. I ask only as a reminder that if you’re following the articles on this blog, you felt a need to spiral up a particular energy or spark to propel you forward.
I bet you’re looking to build up the power existing within your core. It helps you stand firm in the face of opposition to your convictions and is the wind at your back when all looks lost.
People exhibiting such traits are rare sightings. They’re ‘black swans’. Those who chose the difficult path but have faith in their abilities to overcome any situation.
Control the fear and be relentless. Nobody can stop you.
I consider myself to be a changemaker, a Mojomaker. Someone committed to holding space for those ready to rise to their genius and next level experience.
I chose this path because I’m in love with the energy of those that walk the talk of change.
I admire those that leave their particular herds and venture into the unknown to blaze new trails for themselves and proclaim their intention to survive the jungle and then actually do it.
These people are my personal heroes. My admiration points specifically to the relentless factor they manage to conjure up when the going gets exceedingly tough.
One mode of populism currently swirling around, especially in the personal development realm is that if things feel hard it’s not ‘to be’.
Obstacles and adversity shape and hone our character providing purpose.
Giving up, or even more interesting, not showing up because it’s too much work to dive deep or participate in conversations that require a depth of knowledge or energy, has become an acceptable norm.
I run the risk of sounding preachy, but as someone who once wrestled with this and now work with clients who come to me seeking exciting results, I understand why they are caught off guard when I bring this to their attention.
Shifting to the next level of anything in this world requires a toughening up process and confronting blindspots. Not in an adversarial kind of way, but a spiritual toughening that requires dealing with your shadow self and debilitating habits and blocks.
It shines a light on lazy attitudes of mind, body and soul that caused you to stumble in the past.
It will take more from you than expected and for that reason alone, many will settle to stay within the safe confines of their particular herd, speaking the same conversations, going through routines that are draining but familiar.
What about you?
How ready are you to turn up your ‘relentless factor’? The most successful among us got where they are because they rose above and transcended obstacles.
They willingly took the road less traveled and carved new paths. They would rather die than hang out and ‘people’. I remember the day I chose to set out and begin my journey toward something more. It terrified me because the way was unknown.
No one among my peers could tell me what to do, in fact they told me I was nuts. I refused to listen and did so knowing I would pay a price. The final tally of re-imagining and executing the plans on a new life will never truly be known.
The only thing I know, is that my soul is satisfied regardless of what things look like.
What about you?
Are you willing to pay the price life will extract from you to be relentless in shaping the course of your life?
You might shake your head in agreement, but may never actually make your move toward your desired life. It’s too bad really, because you have it within you to rise up and make a difference in your life and in the lives of others.
Relentlessness can be learned. It’s a matter of practice and accountability.
I learned it. I faltered and lost my way at times, but what good adventurer didn’t slide off a cliff or get stuck in sandpit or two or three?
The point is, practice and grow the fortitude to say yes to your dream and begin. I will never tell you it will be easy and that everyone will love or even like you.
What I will tell you is that this is the stuff of legends. It’s how you’ll discover and meet your other self. The self with deep wisdom. The self that’s highly intuitive and brave. The self that’s been waiting to meet you all your life.
Today, I challenge you to write down the step you’ll need to take toward your next goal or dream. If it’s not scary, it doesn’t count, at least not in my books.
Stretch yourself into uncomfortable spaces. Step into a whole new arena of being-ness.
I challenge you to make your mojomove.
