The Power of Unique: Awareness
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. —C.S. Lewis
The first step in understanding the power of Your Unique lies within being aware of your inner thought life.
Very few people in our current culture take the time to think. And even fewer people take the time to think about what they are thinking. We are busy DOING. We are scrolling through social media, working, talking, and taking care of ourselves and loved ones. Taking the time to sit quietly without doing anything is seen as wasted time.
The power of Your Unique lies within your ability to re-program your thoughts. But the first step is discovering and becoming aware of your current, thoughts, beliefs, and desires.
Today marks Day 1 of a 40 day journey to discovering the power of Your Unique. Grab a pen, a journal, and get into a quiet space. Let your journey begin.
Start by answering these questions:
Where am I in my life right now? Write down where you are in your relationships, career, financial positioning, and physical and spiritual health.
Where do I want to be? What do I want and desire most? Write for each of the categories identified in the previous question. Write freely and dream big about where you want to be.
What is stopping me from living the life I that I desire most? Identify the barriers that are keeping you stuck. You may not know yet exactly what is stopping you right now, so write whatever comes to mind.
What next step will I take to grow past where I am today? The good news is that if you have read this post and are doing this assignment, you have already taken the first step!
