It seems like you have it all. The money. The status. The partner. The house. The car. The big screen TV. The vacations. The lot.
But something is missing, and you know it.
You try to numb yourself with work, drinks, masturbation, family, friends, or anything else you can find.
But it keeps nagging at you.
And you know that it is affecting all areas of your life, making you less successful, less influential, and ultimately less happy.
Are you ready to look in the mirror?
Are you connected to your mission and purpose? Love what you are doing and offering your highest gift? Are you leaving a legacy or making a real difference?
Are you sharing your wealth, time, and experience with others? Are you a leader? If you could do anything, what would you do?
Deep down inside, do you love yourself? Are you expressing your masculine essence? Are you embodying presence and unwavering love? Do you have meaningful friendships with distinguished men?
Do you last as long as you want during sex? Is your partner really satisfied?
Are you there for your partner and whole family? Is there passion and growth in your relationships?
Do you have hobbies and interests that fulfil you outside of your career? Are you expressing your creativity and growing?
How is your health and fitness? Are you sacrificing your future to enjoy a few guilty pleasures in the present?
Do you feel connected to spirit, universe, god, or whatever you want to call it? Do you have a daily spiritual practice?
Are you living a balanced, integrated, and meaningful life?
If you were to die tomorrow, will you die happy? Knowing that you have lived life to the fullest, shared your gift with others and grew as a spiritual being?
As long as you don’t deal with the missing piece in your life, you will probably not going to find the happiness, meaning and fulfilment you seek.
Deep down inside you already know it, but you might be afraid to acknowledge it.
Can you allow yourself to feel it? Seriously, just pause for a moment and really feel it. Feel the pain of not expressing your full potential, not pursuing your purpose, or not living life to the fullest. Feel the tension in your body, your chest, your forehead, or your belly.
How would you feel in five years if things don’t change?
I am inviting you to stand up for who you really are and for what you are here to do.
It’s not going to be easy. You might have to face stuff that you’ve been avoiding for years, maybe for your entire life. At some moments you might want to run away or numb yourself with alcohol, work, porn, TV or food. And every such a moment will be an opportunity for you to show up.
I know you can do it.
Start small, or take such a huge step that you wouldn’t be able to turn back.
Don’t put this off.
Now is the time.
I invite you to take the first step by writing down or voice-recording whatever comes up, and deciding on:
– What’s the missing piece that you need to work on? – What are the steps you need to take this week, month, and year? – Who can help you?
To make sure you stay accountable, share your realizations with someone you trust or contact a coach to share in private.
