It’s that time of year when you are either thinking about what you’ll buy for others for Christmas or all the changes you’ll make in the New Year. I stopped making New Year’s Resolutions about five years ago and my only intention for each new year is to be a better more brilliant me. I have only one thing on my mind for the New Year and that’s to show up and shine brighter and to purposely help other people fully step into their greatness and shine brilliantly in their lives. When I live a purposed life full of authenticity, self-love and passion all I have to do is show up and that alone gives other people permission to do the same.
I believe it’s our responsibility to illuminate the lives of others but we must do our work from the inside out in order for our light to shine. So how will you do your “inside job?” The same time and energy you give to your job or work by clocking in and getting it done is the same energy and time you should give to your personal inside job. My request of you today is to make the commitment to “clock into your life” today. Once you clock in you must give it all you’ve got and that means get it done, be creative, go the extra mile, put in overtime, stay late, go in early, meet the deadlines and do it all for YOU! You do it for someone else or for your work right? So why not for you?
It’s time to go to work! Clock in right now and do the work from the inside out just like you are getting paid to do it and with the expectation that you’ll be recognized and promoted to your highest self. The inside job is the most important job you will ever have in your life and quite frankly it’s the only one that really matters. The inside job will also be the most challenging yet reward occupation of your life time.
Put yourself first on the list this season and have only ONE intention for 2011, to be your most brilliant self so you can be a beacon of light for those who waiting to shine. If you are successful at your “inside job” all you have to do is show up in the world as your authentic, awesome self and watch the light in others sparkle and glow with goodness!
Now is the time to do the work on you, from the inside out…
