th… needs from others.

Being emotionally independent needs ONLY from oneself.

If you continually need someone to do/say something in order for you to feel validated and secure, then you’re emotionally needy. Needing others in order to feel fulfilled within yourself is a losing strategy.

Others are NOT YOU. Others come and go into your life and their opinions are subjective. So to base your identity on the whim of outside opinion denies you of your ability to define yourself. If your own validation is contingent on someone/something outside of you, then it’s NOT YOURS.

When you need someone to do/say something to make you feel better about yourself, you’re GIVING YOUR POWER OVER TO THEM. When you give your power over to others to dictate how you feel, you lose your yourself.

Needing something outside of you tells you that YOU DO NOT HAVE IT.

Needing someone outside of you tells you that YOU ARE NOT IT.

No one has something that you do not already have. You have all you need inside yourself. Remember, no one has control over your life unless you give it to them. Once you give your control over to others, your happiness and identity is in their hands and your emotions are at their mercy.

Your power is yours. Your only consistency is within yourself. Don’t be emotionally needy. Take back control over your life and learn how to be emotionally independent within yourself. No more needing, it’s your life, you do not need anyone else to help you define any of it. Now, it’s just time to live it.

th-1… and it will all be handed to you.

Live it in fear, and you will lose it. All of it.

Lions roar. Cowards get eaten. Which one are you?

Lions step up and own their power; they don’t question the direction they want to move in; they naturally seize the day. Cowards spend their days hiding from themselves and hiding from perceived danger. But danger is always a matter of perception… what you perceive will destroy you, absolutely will.

It helps to know that the coward lives in his head – believing his own mind stories – playing games with himself and living in a perpetual state of fear.  Whereas the lion lives in his instinct – not questioning his ability, or comparing himself to anyone else, he just takes what he wants, when he knows he wants it. He lives in a state of his own power.

Being a coward and living in a perpetual state of fear will destroy you. Fear gets you eaten. Fear stops you from living. Fear stops you from experiencing. Fear stops you from evolving.

And what’s worse is that fear builds on itself – you get what you put out in life, and if what you are putting out is fear, you are creating more and more instances of it around you. That process will never allow for happiness and expansion.

Lions are empowered to live their lives. Cowards are disempowered because they give their power over to a perceived predator who will expedite their timely demise. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy of the mind.

How do you want to live your life? Like a lion or a coward?

Live life fearlessly – just like the lion, listen to your intuition and let it guide you – take any and all risks – don’t ask too many questions, just move and always trust in the process of your life to bring you to where you need to be. It’s instinctual. When you focus your energy on creating the life you want, the sky is the limit and you will have it all.

Don’t feed the “what if’s” of the coward’s mind –  don’t even acknowledge them – shut them down. Indecision is the plight of the coward – it imobilizes him with fear and gets him eaten. Life is too short to give your power over to fear. People who succeed in life are the ones who step into their power. Own your power, it’s yours. Let everyone hear you ROAR!

th-4… rewrite your story.

After all, it’s YOURS to rewrite.

We all have a story. Our stories define our lives, but we forget that we are the authors of our stories and that we can rewrite our stories whenever we like.

You are never trapped in your story, if you do not like the chapter you find yourself in, rewrite a new ending – one that better fits you, one that better excites you, one that helps you make amends to the past and inspires you towards a better future.

It doesn’t matter where you have found yourself in your story, you can decide in this moment to change it. You are in full control and can change your story on a dime. If your past is harassing you, erase it and rewrite a new history for yourself and in your next moment, it will become your reality. If you do not like how you have shown up for yourself or others, start now and rewrite your role. Be the YOU you want to be and don’t feel imprisoned by the you you’ve been all along.

If you do not like what you are looking at, change it. You have a general script in place which is your destiny/fate. But you were given free will and that gives you the pencil/eraser to change any and all of it whenever you like. You are never bound to your story, you are always free to explore the parameters of your dreams.

What is holding you up? You are the only one keeping yourself stuck in a story that you’ve outgrown. When you decide to allow yourself to be happy, you will rewrite your story and allow yourself the opportunity to live the life you truly want to live, not the life you consequently find yourself living. There is a difference.

You hold the pen, you are the author, if you are unhappy with what is going on in your life, rewrite your story. Your story begins and ends with you. Why would you give anyone else the pen?
