Think You’re Not Good Enough? It’s no surprise

How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m not good enough.” or even worse, “You’re not good enough.”?

It never ceases to amaze me that people are so inclined to accept the idea that they are unworthy or unable to do the thing that they are compelled to desire due to previous programming and mob mentality.

Why would someone want you not to achieve your highest and best?

You already have everything you will ever need embrace it take actionThis is one of the components of what I refer to as, “The Biggest Conspiracy,” which includes a method for society to control a growing population with the ability to herd and manipulate them with as little effort expended.

One way to do this is to conceive of and promote a culture and system(s) of belief in order to have the members of your society to be easily manipulated en masse. If you’re setting up this culture and, let’s assume that you are one of the more wealthy individuals in your society; as such, you may like to control the individuals who maintain a certain degree of wealth within your society.

In this way, you can create two divisions within your society, which could be referred to as leaders-and-followers, royalty-and-worker-bees, rich-and-poor, etc… and if you would like to be considered a progressive or “free” society, create a system to support the poor folks who might aspire to be not-so-poor folks.

Create colleges and universities to create (and control) the income-earning ability of the individuals within your society, and by all means, lead them to believe that if an individual does not have the proper advanced schooling, they are not qualified to aspire to anything beyond a mediocre working wage or position within your society.

To make this system even more effective, create information sharing components or media that will allow you to communicate messages to your society with as little delay as possible. Having control of the media (which should be wielded by slight-of-hand; certainly you would not want your subjects to actually think that you were controlling it) will allow you to quickly manipulate the mindset of the society as a whole.

I could go on for hours – and I don’t mean to over-simplify – but you must know that these illusionary tactics don’t really work because there’s something inside of you (even the smallest, most sincere whisper) that is telling you, “This is not right.”

That inner voice is telling you the truth. You are a child of God (interpret that anyway that you want) living on a planet full of resources and you – Yes You – are the most valuable resource of all. You came to this planet with a specific purpose and message to share.

And the truth is, you would not have had the thought that a thing could be possible for you, if it wasn’t. In fact, I believe that if you were given a thought of a possible future for you, it is actually a clear vision of the future, if only you could remove whatever stands between where you are in this moment and the vision that you have been given.

Enter the sociological programming and self-doubt, “I’m not educated,” worthy, don’t come from a rich family; don’t have political connections, blah, blah, blah…

You already have everything you will ever need to get you from where you are to where you want to be; if you will only embrace it and take action on it.

Isn’t it time you considered opting out of the herd?

Think about it… as you read these words, you know that it is true; there is a better life out there waiting for you.

Who Are You?

What do you want to be known for?

Isn’t it time that you started thinking about how you would like to be known or remembered for? What would you like people to say about you after you’re gone?

Now is the time to start establishing yourself as the person you’d like to be.

You’re a wise world walker and as such, you have the ability to see and perceive things unencumbered by the social restrictions that confine other earthlings with limiting beliefs.

Who am I having an objective opinion about ones self is the first step of wisdomThe first step in establishing the person that you would like to become is to take stock of where you are currently. Evaluate how you see yourself, how others think about you, and if possible, try to get honest third-party perceptions about the kind of person you are.

Having an objective opinion about one’s self is the first step of wisdom.

I’m a list person, so I would suggest getting a piece of paper and start jotting down what other people’s opinions of you are as well as how you think others might perceive you objectively.

We tend to see ourselves from within and consider the person who we are to be the most intimate and trusted person we know. We know our thoughts, motivations and inner feelings. So, we know how deeply we feel about certain people, circumstances and topics but no one outside ourselves knows how we feel.

Decide which inner feelings you’d like to have recognized for by your family, peers, coworkers, community and possibly the world at large.

So, here’s the next list: Who I Want to be known as?

Go ahead; go crazy. This is your life. The impression you leave on others is all that remains of your life’s journey.

It might help to relax and imagine what you might like to hear people saying about you at your funeral (avoiding the morbidity of the idea). You need not go as far as writing your own eulogy, though some people like doing this as part of the process.

This is not a one-time affair. The wise world walker is constantly evaluating his or her life, being aware of where they are in their journey and intentionally putting their sights on other destinations to engage with.

As a matter of fact, as I write these words, I too, am reflecting deeply… and have just uncovered something that brought me to tears. Though too intimate to share publicly, the basis of it is simply:

I have sincere, deep feelings about something.

The public (exterior) sense of others might have no idea about how passionately I feel about this thing.

If I ask myself, “Would I like to be remembered for how I feel?” or, “Would I like the world to know how I feel?” and the answer is, “Yes.” Then I have a great deal of work to do.

It is not always comfortable work – and in most cases it is not – but thank God you have the wherewithal to realize the separation that exists between

where the perception of you lies

and

what you would like to have known about you.

Your challenge – if you decide to accept it – is to think of ways that your true, authentic self can be seen by others and start taking action.

Who are you?

Let people know who you are.

I want to know you for everything that you would like to be remembered for.

Don’t just tell me; show me.
