You Inspire Me

P1140166 compressedEvery big thing we might be involved with means that we will feel small.

Trust me: In contrast to the grand we feel very inadequate.

It is the nature of extremes and of contrast.

This is why when we must set ourselves aside when we enter into influence.

It is also why we must know ourselves in the first place.

Knowing ourselves is a must; a requisite of life.

What do you love to do?

What fires up your passion and vision?

What brings you to despair?

What dismays you?

Why do you do what you do?

We must know who we are in the world, we must know what we want and what we don’t want, what is important to us and what are our non-negotiables.

If we don’t know our non-negotiables, we won’t know our passions.

If you don’t know what will drive you apart from others, you won’t recognize what will bring you together.

Passion is the name of the game.

Without it, we are androids… hoping and feeling and expecting other’s hopes and feelings and expectations.

Robots, mimicking and parroting what we are taught…

Little room for influence, certainly not a space for lasting relationships.

And before any of us can enter into the big and the grand

That place where we will most certainly feel very small

We must first know who we are and what we are about

Do you know yourself, your needs, your passions, your sorrows?

Do you know what you want and how you want to be in this world?

What do you want?

What do you want?

What do you want?

What do you want?

Answer those with honesty and frankness and tears

And things will begin to shift in your world

It won’t be nice, and it may not be pretty

But it will be meaningful and it will be honest

And others will sit up and take notice

“You inspire me”

… You’re on your way to making this world a better place
