What Would Awesome You Do?

awesome

 

What would awesome you do? It may seem like a trivial question but I’m finding that, when I ask it, it has been shifting the choices I make in that moment. We all know that our life is made up of the things we do and the choices we make on a regular basis. Even still, it is sometimes hard to maintain the discipline of doing the things we’d like to do.

That’s where Nicole Dean comes in. She has created the Awesomization Nation, a 30-day challenge that starts April 1 to help peopleawesome like you and me tap into the energy of awesome. For the next 30 days, people who have joined the challenge will get tips of things to do to make their lives and businesses even more awesome than they already are.

Nicole allowed me to ask three questions of my choosing about the challenge. Here’s what we came up with:

What is Awesomization Nation?

Hi Shayla and thank for letting me share my excitement with your readers. The Awesomization Nation is an idea that I had one night while I was thinking about all of the people out there who are letting life happen to them, rather than being aware and awake to the daily potential that is out there to grab.

 

I decided to open a group of people who would all be willing to do three extra awesome things each day for the month of April. I’ll provide ideas, but the main goal will be to do awesome things in our businesses, our lives, and in the world to make the world a better place.

 

Are we battling for sainthood? No. This is just about being conscientious about doing tiny things every day to move ourselves towards our goals.

 

For instance, if writing a book is your goal, then take the first day to create the title and the outline, and then work on writing 500 minimum words per day towards achieving that goal. If you write for the next 29 days, you’ll have 14,500 words minimum. But odds are that you’ll write more than 500 every day. The hard part is sitting down and getting started. That’s where the Awesomization part comes in. The idea is to think of what the Awesome version of you would do – and DO it.

 

What are some of the most profound transformations you’ve seen from participants?

Well, considering we haven’t even started yet, it’s funny that I can actually answer this question. We’ve got people who are taking steps towards their goals that they’ve been putting off for years.

 

One gal is going back to the gym, because that’s what the Awesome version of her would do.
Another has outlined her book that she’s wanted to write for ages.

 

We’ve got people connecting for interviews like crazy in there. I personally am doing 5 podcast interviews this week, and I see others connecting, too.

 

I’m also impressed to see people taking action to be more involved in organizations that are meaningful to them. They had it in their hearts that they would do it “someday” but their awesome selves had the invitation to do it NOW – and they did.

 

Why is this different from other time sucks?

This is different from other time sucks because you’re making a commitment to yourself to work towards something that’s important to you. And when you get to the day when you “don’t wanna do it”, then you’ll have the inspiration of seeing others who ARE doing it despite harder obstacles than you have. Personally, I’m doing this challenge also for me. I struggle with depression and I love having positive, warm, hard-working, smart people around me, too. So, I’ve created the perfect storm for all of us to have unprecedented successes in our lives.

 

So, are YOU ready to be more awesome?!

Deconstructing “I’m Not Enough”

mask

I’ve never yet met a person who didn’t suffer from some form of insecurity. We all feel – because we’re all taught (but that’s a different blog post) – like we are inadequate or not good enough in some way. The list of things that could make you “not good enough” is endless. You’re too tall/short, thin/fat, dark/light, rich/poor, genius/average, or creative/logical, your credit score it too low or too high, you don’t drive the right car, wear the right shoes, or know the right people.

There’s never a shortage of ways to make you feel crappy about yourself and there’s also an endless supply of people who will gladly point out your inadequacy because they feel so badly about themselves that the only way they know how to bring themselves up is by putting someone else down.

What’s weird about your feeling of being not enough is that, you’re right. You’re NOT enough! Let me explain…

The moment your soul entered into a human body, you became not enough. Why? Because there is a deeper part of you that will always know that you are so much bigger than you could ever be in human form. You will always feel a sense of internal struggle as a result. The further you stray from your recognition as a spiritual being with limitless power, the more you will feel this sense of not enough-ness. That’s why spirituality helps you shake off the angst of the man-made version of your inadequacy. When I say spirituality, I’m not speaking of religion that tells you that you’re broken in some way without a Savior that’s outside of you, nor am I speaking of “I’m so spiritual I need to announce it every ten minutes” posing. I’m talking about the type of connection with your version of Higher Power that allows you to sense and know the greatness that’s both within and around you. Tapping into this will allow you to much more easily navigate the man-made version of inadequacy.

On the flip side, the part of you that feels like you can’t be your authentic self without living in complete isolation is simply afraid (and also wrong). You ARE enough. Why? Because you are the only YOU that has ever existed and that ever will. No matter what you’re measuring against, there will always be someone who is in a different part of the spectrum than you are. If you’re short, for example, there will always be someone taller and there will always be someone shorter. Comparing yourself is a completely subjective and almost always illegitimate method of measuring your worth because the data is always skewed in favor of which interpretation you’re trying to find evidence of. The only thing that nobody can ever compete with you on, not even your “identical” twin, is your YOU-ness. There is only one of you.

Ironically, while you’re busy sitting around saying “who am I to…”, the world is wishing and wanting for someone exactly like you to appear. There is a gift inside you that nobody else has, there’s a message within you that nobody else can deliver in the same way you would say it and there are people who can’t hear that message or accept that gift if it is delivered in any other way.

People around you want you to be just like them because that’s within their comfort zone. It doesn’t force them to look beyond themselves or to acknowledge that they aren’t being real either. It’s only through you having the courage to be YOU in all your splendor and all your oddity, that the world around you gets to see that it’s possible and start the shift for themselves.

It sounds simplistic but, at the end of the day, you own your life. You get to choose what to do with it. Will you continue to feed at the trough of inadequacy or will you unleash your sparkle?

Leave me a comment and tell me your choice 😉

4 Words that Just Might Change Your Life

IMG_0602-0

You never know that a moment is coming that will change you forever. For me, it started simply enough – my wife and I were out running errands one weekend and we became hungry and decided to stop for an early dinner. After trying unsuccessfully to find a place we’d like that didn’t have a line a mile long, our “hungry” had morphed into “starving” and choice no longer mattered. We gave in and just went into the next restaurant we saw. “Come on”, she said, “I’ll buy you dinner.”

It turned out there was a reason for the lack of a line at the place we chose. Service was lukewarm and, to put it nicely, the food was horrid. Our comments to each other were things like, “How can you fu*k up beans? You take them out of a can and heat them up. How could that possibly go awry?!”

After just a couple bites, my wife pushed her plate aside. I, on the other hand, kept eating.

She watched me for awhile. I was hunched over my plate like it was a special meal in prison and I had to guard against someone taking it away from me. With compassion and understanding in her eyes, she quietly said, “You don’t have to eat that”. Without a thought and barely even taking a breath, I replied, “But it’s my dinner” and kept shoveling it in as quickly as I could. I hated every bite but had been conditioned that I had to eat it, no matter what.

Let’s be honest, despite me being brilliant at busting fear, if you see me, it is glaringly apparent that food and I have an unusual relationship. I am what doctors would classify as morbidly obese and although I truly love vegetables and lean meats, I also have a mad love affair with sugar and fried foods. In all honesty, I have a tragic, painful relationship with food that I have never disclosed, except to those in my inner circle – until today.

My mother was mentally ill. She never had a clinical diagnosis but if you knew her, you would readily agree that the synapses within her brain fired in a much different pattern that the average person. I was adopted by her and my father when I was four and a half.

By age 5, it was clear that if she put something in front of me, I had to eat it – no questions asked. If I didn’t, I would not only be punished but the same meal would be waiting for me the next time I sat down at the table, and the next, and the next, and the next, until I finally gave in and ate it. Our first instance of this lesson resulted in me going without ANY food for three whole days, in addition to being spanked and berated after every failed meal, because I refused to eat a plate of chitlins (chitterlings, aka cow intestines, for you more proper folk). I quickly learned that, if it is put in front of me, I must eat it – no matter what.

Many of us were raised with the “starving kids in Africa” paradigm so I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels compelled to clean their plate, whether it’s what your body or mind really wants or not but I then had another issue laid on top of that one.

When I was ten, I started to develop breasts. My mother decided I was fat. My father had passed away two years earlier so there was no longer anyone around to rein her in. She concluded the only way to keep me from being fat was to restrict my eating…so she did. I was allowed to alternate one egg for breakfast one day and a bowl of cereal (with powdered milk that went rancid long before I finished it) the next. That was my food for the day.

I started to love going to school, despite my social anxiety and difficulties there, because it meant I could move slowly enough at the end of our lunch period to sneak into the trash cans and gorge myself on the unfinished lunches of the other children. For two long years, school lunchroom trash cans became my primary source of food. When I was finally removed from my home at age twelve, I weighed a mere 50 pounds – the weight of the average healthy 7 year old. You could see every bone in my body, I passed out frequently from simple activities such as trying to stand up, and the doctors classified me as suffering from severe malnutrition.

Fast forward to me becoming homeless at age 19, where getting food and eating the scraps of others once again became my norm. Suffice it to say, when it comes to food, I don’t just have issues – I have an entire subscription. Not only do I have “mindlessly clean your plate” messaging firmly ingrained but I also have “I have to eat a lot now because who knows when food will become scarce again” mentality coded into every cell.

Having someone say, “you don’t have to eat that” wasn’t a sentence my brain knew how to comprehend…so I kept gagging down the food.

My wife gently touched my arm and interrupted its trajectory toward my mouth. She looked into my eyes and said again, more firmly, “You don’t have to eat that.” I stopped with my mouth still full of putrid, disgusting food, my eyes wide as saucers, as if she had just informed me that the world was round after my entire life of thinking it was flat. I wasn’t entirely sure what she was saying. I was confused and unable to do anything but sit there with my mouth hanging open.

She then said, “You don’t ever have to eat anything you don’t want again. You can stop at any point. I don’t care who made it or even if I bought it and it was really expensive. You don’t have to eat it. And you will never be in trouble and, as long as I’m alive, you will never go hungry again. Ever. So if you don’t like it, stop. Put the fork down and let’s go some place that isn’t disgusting and I will buy you a whole new meal if you want one.” Tears started to stream down my face.

I realized that hidden within what she said were four words that changed my life, “You have my permission.”

As much as we like to talk about being empowered and claiming responsibility for our own lives, almost all of us are heavily influenced by the beliefs and opinions of others. I realized I had spent my whole life eating food I didn’t really even want because someone had told me I had to and I had never questioned, even as an adult, whether I had the power to simply stop doing it. I have taken charge and kicked ass in many areas of my life but we all have our areas of weakness and I will readily admit that was one of mine. It was something so ingrained that I didn’t ever even stop to think about whether I had another choice, so I kept going the way I always had.

I’ve started losing weight since then. My body is releasing it slowly and begrudgingly but it is finally coming off. My only change is that I now stop eating when I no longer feel like eating, and I don’t justify or apologize for doing so. I simply stop. What a gift that has been!

Thinking about this, I started to think about all the work with people I do around their fears and how they can step through them to build successful businesses and empowered lives. I realized that at least a part of what I do is give people permission to make a different choice than the one of staying stuck in fear. I also realized that’s what many people in the personal development realm do. People are rarely revealing to you anything that you didn’t already know within your core; they are simply giving you permission to step into something greater than what you’ve allowed for yourself prior to that moment.

So, right here, right now, I want to share with you the same gift my wife gave to me. Whatever that thing is that you’ve been doing that you don’t really even want to do but you don’t feel like you have any choice – whether it’s cleaning your plate, smoking another cigarette, stifling your voice, dimming your light, dishonoring your wishes, or anything else that doesn’t make your soul smile – STOP. Stop now. As simple as that. In fact, you don’t have to do that thing ever again, if you don’t want to.

You have my permission.

Are You Still Hungry?

Have you ever had this happen? You’re hanging out with a friend and both of you get hungry and decide you should go to lunch. You then have the following conversation:

You: So where do you want to go?
Her: I don’t know. Where do you want to go?
You: I’m pretty open. I’ll go anywhere except for that one Mexican place we went to last week.
Her: Oh no! I love that Mexican place! But…it’s ok. You decide.

This is your moment of truth. You can either:

A. Go to the Mexican place anyway, even though you dislike it. You justify it by thinking that you’re being a good friend.
B. Go somewhere really popular. This place doesn’t really thrill you but you feel good about yourself because you’re fitting in.

I view this situation as a metaphor for life. Until you know where you want to go, you will either sit there – hungry – or you will settle for what other people want you to do. This is why clarity is so critical. When you are clear on what you want, you then have another option:

C. Take your friend to your favorite place.

Do you know what you want for your life? Do you have a destination you’re heading towards? Or are you still hungry?

I Dare You to Receive!

IMG_0524

You ever do something and you know it has the potential to turn into a complete train wreck but you feel compelled to do it anyway? Yeah, that just happened.

It felt like I had no control over doing something that was even worse than that time I followed a complete stranger around Starbucks, thinking she was the person I was there to meet (but wasn’t). This time, my actions were deliberate and intentional and freakishly weird but, as bad as it seems, I would probably do the same if given another chance.

It all started with a Facebook post. I had become Facebook friends with Ann Marie Houtailing (http://www.annmariehoughtailing.com) and she posted:

IMG_0404.JPG

I immediately commented, “How can I help you? (Yes, I’m serious)” She replied with something witty and I was clear that she had just “joked me off” and the appropriate response would have been to say something cute or witty in return and then move on with my life…except I couldn’t.

I couldn’t because, although neither of us knew it, I had reached my limit of seeing people who are major givers in the world but are unable to receive.

I imagine love as this energetic circuit that is trying to complete itself and far too often is unable to because we have a world full of givers and takers but very few receivers. We are taught that it is better to give than to receive and we run around with this mentality that the more we can give to the world, while receiving as little in possible in return, the better we are as individuals.

We hold these types of people up on pedestals and we tell each other that this is what we should all aspire to, but I personally don’t believe that’s the case.

I see a world of people that are killing themselves trying to get love, doing things that sacrifice their integrity or their well-being in order to be approved and loved when, really, there’s an overabundance of love that is just hanging out in the atmosphere with nowhere to go because we’ve all conditioned ourselves not to receive it.

So, I did what any nominally sane person would do given the same scenario. I waited a couple days and replied again…and then, a couple days after that, I sent a private message because I wanted her to be clear I wasn’t just trying to get public recognition. I simply wanted to help.

Yes, if you’re wondering, I had just become really creepy but I couldn’t stop if I wanted to. Luckily, to preserve her sanity and my arrest record, she wrote back and suggested we meet in person. We met and I told her the thought that was in my mind when I wrote my last message to her. It was, “I dare you to receive!”

Which, more fully, meant something like “I dare you to be a complete conduit of love, to buck the norm of what we are all taught, to have the courage to allow love to flow in all directions, to declare yourself worthy of the same level of love and care that you provide to everyone else, to be vulnerable and build deeper, truer connections with people as a result. I dare you to be a recipient of all the goodness that you put out into the world and not push it away or laugh it off”

It takes courage to receive; it’s not something for the faint of heart. Receiving lives way outside the comfort zone of many of us and it feels even more uncomfortable when the person wanting to give is a relative stranger, but that’s actually the point. Your ability to receive shouldn’t hinge on preconceived notions of who the giver should be. We all crave love and abundance and, yet, many of us have no idea how to let it in. Don’t you think it’s time we learned?

Take a quick look inside, Are you like Ann Marie? If so, I challenge you too!

I dare you to receive! What’re you gonna do about it?

P.S. Stay tuned to learn what she said when we met in person!

5 True Things I Wish You’d Stop Saying

speak-no-evil

You ever had someone say something to you and you know its true but a part of you still wants to fight it? Yeah, seems like there are many of those. The truth is not always popular and it’s not always spoken in the most convenient moments. Here are my top 5 true things that I really wish you’d stop saying:

Love is all there is.

To this one, I simply smile and nod. In my mind, I’ve just envisioned myself slapping you soundly across the face and saying, “Shut the f*** up! Love is NOT all there is. If it was 1. There wouldn’t be ________ [insert hateful horror du jour] and 2. You wouldn’t need to say it.”

Despite, my visceral reaction, you are right…kind of. I think a more accurate statement would be “Love is all there is…at its origin”, meaning than even fear or hatred (which is a form of fear) starts out as a desire to love and protect yourself. After that point of origin, there is duality – yin and yang, light and dark. So, yes, “in the beginning” love is all there is but beyond that point is where most people live.

He/She is in a better place.

In the moment that you’ve said it to me, I’m likely wracked with grief and telling me about the outcome for the dead person DOES NOT HELP that. Grief is 100% selfish. I am mourning MY loss. So by telling me they are in a better place, you’ve clearly just demonstrated total lack of understanding about the inner workings of grief itself as well as total disregard for my emotions. Yes, I know you meant well.

That’s not to say that your statement is incorrect. In fact, I know you’re right. Been there, seen that. I had a near death experience when I was 19 and it was the single most fabulous event of my life so I totally agree that he/she is in a better place. But remember that a statement being true doesn’t always make it appropriate to say. Honor the moment.

Forgiveness will set you free.

“What’s that? I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear you. I’ve got this bone of contention and I’m too busy gnawing on it to hear a thing you have to say. Nom nom nom.”

What you don’t seem to understand is that I’m holding on to this pain for a reason. Perhaps it is to remind me not to trust that person again, perhaps it serves as validation for my current behavior, or maybe I even hold onto it because I get more attention and sympathy. So, yes, forgiveness would set me free but until I address my reasons for holding on to the pain, I won’t ever get there.

In the meantime, you saying that to me makes me feel like you’ve completely invalidated my experience. It pushes me further away from forgiveness and you.

All you need to do is _____________.

Oh, wow, really?! I didn’t realize all I needed to do was [eat less, exercise more] [get a job] [find someone with a big list to partner with] […]. I wish I had known that sooner. I totally would have tried that!

Yes, it is true that all I need to do is _____________. However, if doing ______________ was easy and straightforward, it would already be done and we wouldn’t even be having this conversation. The next time you feel the urge to state something that is well known and exceedingly simple, raise your hand…and then put it over your mouth.

If I am not doing the obvious, it is because there is something standing in my way. Help me figure out what that thing is and help me get past it and you’ve forever changed my life. Simply telling me the simple version just makes you seem pompous and self-absorbed.

Your past is not your future.

I couldn’t resist adding one I say often that I’m sure irritates the hell out of those around me. Clearly, if nothing changes then nothing changes, which means that your past actually is your future, unless you make different choces.

I think this statement would be much more accurate (and well received) if it was changed to, “Your past doesn’t have to be your future.”

Why do I say it? Because life is a lot like your GPS. It has never scoffed at you and said, “You’re starting at A and you want to go all the way to Z?! Impossible!” It simply takes your data and calculates the route. Life does the same but I see far too many people telling themselves crappy stories about what that starting point means, and staying stuck as a result.

So, yes, I say stupid, cringe-worthy truths with good intentions, just like the rest of you. I’m working on honing my compassion so I can better recognize what it would feel like on the receiving side. Maybe you could too.

What are some of your least favorite truths to hear (or that you catch yourself saying)? Leave me a comment and share a couple.

Embracing Wholeness

20140805-143604-52564849

I am not a good person. A fiery well of rage lies deep within me for all of the injustices that have occurred in my one crazy, whirlwind of a life and I have acted inappropriately on that rage – more than once. And, yes, I have done things I am deeply ashamed of and have narrowly avoided prison – more than once.

I am also an award-winning embodiment of Unconditional Love. I spend every day inspiring others and helping people to shine their light. I have been told that when I walk into the room, the energy automatically shifts to love, simply by my presence.

Which version is the “real” me? They both are.

We spend so much time trying to fight our darkness but the truth is that we are all both shadows and light. I am learning the very difficult lesson that my dark side serves me in various ways and is a much needed component of my makeup. The more I resist it, the more of a disservice I do to myself.

Unfortunately, the world generally sees only one side or the other and judges us accordingly. We then feel compelled to uphold that image, rather than embracing the wholeness or duality of who we each are.

What would you do differently if you were allowed to be whole? Leave me a comment and let me know.

That’s Not My God

3949650938_c226a78f72_b

I
Have
Learned
So much from God
That I can no longer
Call
Myself
A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim
A Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of
Itself
With me
That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, and angel
Or even pure Soul.

Love has
Befriended
Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And freed
Me
Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.

– Hafiz, ancient Sufi poet

The first (and only) time I ever said no to my mother, it was about religion. I was 8 years old and she wanted me to get baptized. I refused. When she asked me why, I said, “because that’s not my God”.

What she heard was that I was a Satan-worshiper. That single statement sparked an 11 year battle to save my soul by beating the devil out of me – literally…but, that’s a different story.

What I meant was something altogether different. I didn’t know how or why but I held a belief, strong and unwavering within my soul, that God was simply about love. The God they taught me about in church was angry, judgmental, and, in my opinion, a bit insecure. That was not my God!

However, like many of us, over time I chose to put my own truth on a shelf and live in a manner that conformed to the beliefs and mindset of those around me. I became a “born-again” Christian and got baptized when I was 13. I was completely faithful and, had you asked me about my decision at age 8, I would have told you I had been a foolish child and I just didn’t understand things back then. I held fast to that stance for 6 more years.

…and then I died.

The experience that I remember from my death shattered the concepts of everything I was being taught by the world. During it, I was bathed in love and acceptance and I recognized the same energy that I had connected with as a child. I also reached the personal conclusion that there was no way to encompass THAT power in a particular dogma or religion so, when I returned to life, I instantaneously went from devout Christian to firm believer in the energy and power of love – and nothing else. The new rules that I followed shifted to simply living as love on a regular basis.

Let me tell you, it ain’t easy! We live in a world divided; one filled with hatred and fueled by fear. Standing firm in the space of love takes courage and fortitude. It takes busting through fear, pretty much constantly, in order to face the world as an authentic individual.

I don’t talk often about my spirituality or the place it holds within my business but I figured if I’m doing a blog challenge with a group called Spiritual Badass, I should at least touch upon the concept of spirituality.:-)

Does my spirituality influence my business? Of course it does!

I think that everyone is influenced by their spirituality, or even by the choice to not believe in anything. So, to me, it goes without saying that my business is influenced by my spirituality. If you ask me what I do, my response would start with something like, “I help entrepreneurs bust through the fears that are keeping them stuck.” but I could just as easily hint at the spiritual influence and say, “I help entrepreneurs live in a space of love.” Tomayto, tomahto.

How about you? Leave me a comment and tell me what influence your spirituality has had on your work. (Play nicely!)

Just Doing It

afraid

I have a secret. I’m afraid people will come to my website.

I have a great deal of website shame. My content is not all that I feel like it should be so I blog on a different site (http://shaylalogan.wordpress.com/). People LOVE my blog! My website? … not so much.

SO I decided to sign up for the Spiritual Badass 30 Day Blog Challenge AND I plan to post the blogs on this site.

Why? Well, first because it will motivate me to get my site in order. Second, I’d rather have all of my stuff in one place so it is easier for both me and my clients. And third, because sometimes the easiest way to get past your angst is to just move, even if it is in tiny steps.

Being a Professional Fear Buster means that I get to experience all kinds of fear and then bust through it. Each time I do so, I grow and I’m able to help my clients grow even more too. Win-win!

So, today, my plan is to be like Nike and Just Do It. Welcome to Day 1 🙂
