Start From Here & Watch What Happens

Where we come from, inside ourselves, matters. It shapes everything that happens afterwards. It shapes, what we see as possible; it shapes our choices, our understanding, our perspective, our communication, and ultimately our actions. Where we come from, is our starting point. 

You can see evidence of this everywhere. When we’re more neutral, we have more perspective. When we’re more reactive, we are often more impulsive. When we see the world or ourselves as limited, our choices are limited. What we choose to say from an upset mind is often different than what we choose to say when our minds are more settled. 

Where we come from, inside ourselves, is shaping how we see the world. It is shaping what we see as possible or impossible. Said another way, our internal climate, our quality of mind, has a direct relationship to whatever we are up to in that moment.

In the last two years, I have interviewed over a hundred guests on the Real Business Real Lives podcast. Throughout these interviews there has been one powerful realization that many guests believe has been the single most transformative shift in the way they move in their business. That realization is the absolute knowing that they are okay no matter what happens. 

When they realized their wholeness, their well-being, was not dependent on circumstance or outcomes, it gave them an incredible sense of freedom. When this became their starting point, they naturally were more creative, saw more options, were willing to take more risks and get in over their heads. This led to new discoveries, more fulfillment, creativity and traction.

Do you know you’re okay no matter what? What would you try or do if this was your starting point? 

When we KNOW we are whole and complete AS IS; when we SEE that we are okay no matter what, we put our certainty in the right place.

We don’t put our certainty in a particular outcome or getting what we want, we put it in our knowing that regardless of what happens, we are ok. We will find our way.

Rather than stalling or hesitating because of the fear of the unknown, we understand that we have what it takes to handle whatever happens. We discover we do well in the unknown. We are creative, adaptable and resilient by nature. We follow our inspiration, we stay present, keep learning and as a result access new capabilities and potential within. 

Below is the second video from the 2020 INSIGHT program where we consider the question, What’s Your Starting Point? In this video, I share what opens up for us when our starting point is SEEING and KNOWING that WE ARE OK no matter what.  

When this knowing becomes the foundation of everything we do, life opens up for us in new and exciting ways.

You always were and always will be whole and complete.
