F*ck Normal: Being Different In A World Of Sameness

F*ck Normal: Being Different In A World Of Sameness

If you’re reading this, you must feel different.

You must live, choose, act and do different.

You’ve felt this difference for a long time but managed to tame it down in order to fit and blend in with the others.

You went along with the ‘typical’ and ‘usual’ and ‘probables’ … all the while fighting the deep longing to simply do what you wanted. Create what you wanted. Express exactly what your soul ached to be expressed.

Travel the world. Help millions. Create like the artist you are. Serve like the servant you are. Love like the lover you are.

And these very things required your natural, God-given state of EXCELLENCE. Focusing, creating, living, performing with EXCELLENCE. The highest standard of being, which has always been you.

Because you’re different.

You’re not even normal.

And if you hear ‘NORMAL’ one more time…you’ll burst.

3 Steps To Owning Your Sh*t

3 Steps To Owning Your Sh*t

And Being A Creator Not Victim—Of Your Life.

The other day I was in an off-the-rails political discussion with someone closest to me (in my entire life). This person, despite the contrasting lens in which we see certain social issues and policies, you see, we share a congruent value system and moral code. We might not agree with one another, but we try and get each other, from left to right to everything in between.

In today’s world, battling over anything, no less political gripes, is certainly not abnormal. But it is for us. Because we talk. We communicate. We listen to one another. We give each other the space to share and then dissect, understand, resolve. I love this about us. I protect this about us.

The other day, I fell short. On my commitment, on my integrity, to show up for him in this way.

5 Signs You're A Rebel (#2 might shock you).

Looking back, that was my first call toward rebellion, or doing life differently than the majority.

That seed was my internal compass, my point of difference, my unique-as-a-snowflake guide in the world—navigating college to career to city life and beyond.

As a 30-something, I’m a ride-or-die rebel. Less in the taboo sense, more in the empowerment, stick-to-my-guns sense.

You see, the brules, or bullsh*t rules, society tells us are the way to live? I confront. Question. Poke holes in.

My Coach Costs More Than My Rent (And Has This Super Power)

My Coach Costs More Than My Rent (And Has This Super Power)

It wasn’t until my early 30’s that I realized how taboo the topic of money was in our culture and society. In corporate, it was looked down upon, in fact, a ‘terminable offense’ to compare salaries with colleagues. In family and friend groups, it was a topic that was neatly tucked away in the hideaway valleys of earnings anonymous. There was plenty a evidence of struggle and debt and ‘lack’ but no real candid conversations around the universal thing that provides freedom across every aspect of life.

Stop Asking For Permission (Here's Why)

Stop Asking For Permission (Here's Why)

When was the last time you had an idea that needed validation from someone else? When did you go against the guidance of your intuition and ask for an outsider's opinion? When did asking for permission become your thing?

Stop seeking external guidance on internal affairs. Stop giving someone else the authority over you. Stop showing yourself on a subconscious level that you aren't to be trusted in making decisions. Stop trying to put out your own flame.

How To Change Your Mindset For Success

When asked about our thoughts and beliefs toward money, (because fact has is that 80% of success is determined not by action or strategy but MINDSET), responses ranged from ‘I can’t make money like other people can’ to ‘I’ve never been valuable enough to make good money’ to ‘I like being frugal’ and ‘If I make more money my freedom will be gone or people will expect me to help them.
