If you want to be given everything, give up everything.
- Lao Tzu
Let me give you one word. Polarize. Through loudly speaking your inner truth, you winnow out those who are not your people. Be brave. Talk your talk and be your full, brazen, unadulterated self. Make people love you or hate you because you’re message will probably be triggering and uncomfortable for some, but be fully, purely you. You don’t have to be for everyone. You’re not meant to. In fact, some people will just not vibe with you. It isn’t personal. They just won’t resonate with your personal frequency and that’s fine. But those folks who hang around long after the other peeps have left, they’ll totally love you. You’ll speak to their personal experience and they’ll hang around because you’re vibing to their tune.
People gravitate towards truth and authenticity, including sharing stories where you make yourself vulnerable to criticism. But there is a tremendous amount of courage in allowing yourself to bare all. People admire that, because they secretly want that too. So put your unique ideas and perspectives out into the world. Stop editing yourself. You’ll attract a band of followers who’ll love you fiercely.
Play louder and put your innermost message out, lovely ones.
