You don’t have to make friends!

You don’t have to be liked to be brilliant!

One of the things I see clients getting held back by, time and again, is an unwillingness to be unpopular.  They hold back from speaking their truth for fear of upsetting somebody, or of being attacked for the beliefs they hold about the way the world can be made better.  And they find themselves stuck in the anodyne land of ‘normal average real and the same as everybody else’ (as Dr Dain Heer of Access Consciousness puts it – who wants to be that?)

And here’s the thing: you cannot be outstanding if you are not willing to stand out.

And yes, that does mean being willing to receive criticism from some of the ‘normal’ people – the ones who believe we are supposed to make ourselves smaller so we don’t overshadow those who are not yet ready to become the magnificent, potent beings they really are. Because when we are able to receive the disapproval of the average folks, and still allow our brilliance to shine brightly, we set an example for all the other potent-ial conscious change-makers, giving them permission to shine too.

That doesn’t exactly make it sound very joyful to step into your Genius, does it, receiving all that disapproval and criticism?  

But there’s a twist: when you step up and speak your truth, you are also going to attract the people to you who really get you, who adore what you are saying, people who will absolutely love you and your message.  Your tribe, who are going to become your clients, close friends, and co-conspirators for a better world.

So much more than just being liked 🙂
