You are already everything you've ever wanted to become. You fulfill your life purpose with every breath you take. Your mission is hidden in your shadow. And the shadow you’re standing on is cast by your own light.
Your mission in life is not preordained. You have free will. You may willfully choose to ignore the signs or you may choose to believe you have a greater purpose.
Discovering your mission is as much a choice as it is an ability. You can choose to create the life you want to live. Your creativity is your divinity.
How did you grow up to be so small? To inhabit such a tiny world?
When the Universe will expand to accommodate whatever space your ideas demand -- how -- when -- why did you start believing you had to be smaller than you really are?
- "You are your own worst enemy."
- "You're too smart for your own good."
- "You're too big for your britches."
...and you chose to believe them.
It's a kind of anorexia — maybe not to disappear completely — but you've believed the lie, at least subconsciously, that you're not worthy of the space you take up.
So you've played dumber and acted weaker and pretended not to know and covered your light and tried to appear less threatening ... to ensure the comfort of others who feel small too.
There's enough to go around for those who will deserve it.
Not only do you have the right to be bigger, it's your duty -- your mission -- if you can accept it: to finally begin living as big as you dare to dream.
