Authenticity Matters

In life, love and leadership, authenticity is the only currency that matters. 🦋

There. That’s It.

You know how
every once in a while
you do something
and the little voice
inside says
‘There. That’s it.
That’s why you’re here’
and you get
a warm glow
in your heart
because you know
it’s true?
Do more of that. 🦋

The Black Magicians

Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally…

Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in.

When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.

Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds…

Taking things personally makes you easy prey for these predators, the black magicians. They can hook you easily with one little opinion and feed you whatever poison they want, and because you take it personally, you eat it up….

But if you do not take it personally, you are immune in the middle of hell. Immunity in the middle of hell is the gift of this agreement.

The Root of Our Unhappiness

We all have two lives. The life we are living and the unlived life striving to come alive.

What lies between our two worlds, is our daily practice of yielding to a dysfunctional and crippling force within us, our inner resistance, our irrational fear of living true.

The struggle and inevitable suffering that we feel is largely due to the frequency we acquiesce to our resistance. We give in to or go along with our fears without much awareness let alone protest.

We inadvertently up tick our self-loathing, we bury the best version of ourselves and we abandon the life of our dreams. We innocently move along the continuum of life in misery, believing that this is our lot in life. Although our safe, secure and comfortable life choices may be leading us down the road of unhappiness, blah lifelessness, we can at least rationalize the trade off. Right? Yes of course but at what cost?

The antidote? To accept that resistance is and always will be an essential aspect of of our psyche. It helps us to survive in the face of actual life threatening danger. However, we don’t need to yield to it’s misinterpretations and self-sabotage our intentions. We can learn to manage and transform its energy, to leverage our power to proactively thrive and live true.

Self-empowerment is a daily practice that affirms that we are the sovereigns of our life and to rule well is a disciplined thinking skill. 🦋

Suffering Our Thoughts

How might your life be different if you decided to stop tolerating or suffering your own thoughts, void of clarity, confidence and courage.

How would your life be different if you dared yourself to move out of your comfort zone, tackled your fears and gave your self permission to live a more authentic version of whom you are?

Mmmm, imagine the joy, freedom, expansiveness, passion, aliveness, you would feel if you dared yourself to experience the life which is in your heart.

What are three things you can do today to start moving in the direction of your dreams? 🦋

Reclaiming Our Power

Throughout the years, I have met and coached woman in positional power who believed that being aggressive, arrogant and irreverent was the persona of a powerful person. It turned out that it wasn’t and they eventually derailed their leadership effectiveness.

Through the process of self-empowerment coaching, my clients discovered that underneath their contemptuousness was imposter syndrome, the fear of being found out that she was a phoney, that her self-confidence was wobbly and inconsistent and that she was often plagued with self-doubt.

Our coaching sessions were focused on bringing forth her inherently empowered authentic-self, which resulted in a natural and observable transformation.

An empowered woman who knows and respects herself radiates an authentic confidence, she is grace under fire and she interacts with people with interest, respect and compassion. Empowered woman understand the strength and purpose of their power and they proudly wield it to inspire, create and to positively influence her world. 🦋

Authenticity Slays Shame

Shame is an inner-focused, painful emotion that encompasses the entire sense of self. It distorts a person’s self image to the point that they cannot see nor relate to their deeply buried authentic selves.

Shame is an IRRATIONAL feeling of worthlessness, humiliation and self loathing that leads to an overall feeling of paralysis that profoundly sabotages a person’s life.

Internalized shame ruins lives, it stops individuals from experiencing professional success and it derails significant relationships.

With the support of a professional therapist or transformational life coach, shame can be dismantled and a person’s self-esteem and life rebuilt. 🦋

Less Perfection …

Less perfection, more authenticity. 🦋

Being Real Rocks …

The moment we give ourselves permission to be authentic, our inner world shifts and we begin to attract the right people, things and experiences into our life.

It is so much more satisfying and fulfilling to be real than trying to be whom we think should be, to have what we think we should have, to be happy.

Today observe how you feel when you are being the real you and how you feel when you are suppressing your authenticity.

Clearing Inner Clutter …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--Balance 3

When we are re-imagining our life it is important to clear our inner clutter … to let go of all thoughts that do not support our highest vision of our ‘authentic’ self in the here and now.

Express Yourself …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--CREATE

The foundation of ‘great’ success? Expressing yourself authentically.

100% Natural …

Living Success 3d--Natural

There are three fundamental principles to being natural…

Know thy self.
Shed all fear of being accepted, belonging and approval.
Authentically, Be, Do, Have.

~ Judit e. Szabo

An Act of Rebellion …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D-FREEDOM

There are two distinct Freedoms in our world: ‘Freedom To’ and ‘Freedom From’. When we focus on ‘Freedom To’, we naturally expand our horizons and move into new vistas of being and living.  When our vision is limited by  ‘Freedom From’, our life tends to be tethered to the very experience we desire to be free from. An authentic act of rebellion springs from our passion for the ‘Freedom To’.

~ Judit e. Szabo

Three Simple Rules…

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--3 RULES

Empowering personal rules are our guiding principles, that serve us in our daily lives, with what to do and how to do it. Essentially our rules, if they are self-prescribed, help us to live our lives authentically with meaning, passion and purpose.

~ Judit e. Szabo

Personal Revolution …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--INDIVIDUALITY

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.

You trade in your reality for a role.

You trade in your sense for an act.

You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.

There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level.

It’s got to happen inside first.

~ Jim Morrison

Personal Authority …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--CROWNS

What constitutes “personal authority”?

Stated most simply, it means to find what is true for oneself and to live it in the world.

If it is not lived, it is not real for us, and we abide in what Sartre called “bad faith,” the theologian calls “sin,” the therapist calls “neurosis,” and the existential philosopher calls “inauthentic being.”

Respectful of the rights and perspectives of others, personal authority is neither narcissistic nor imperialistic.

It is a humble acknowledgement of what wishes to come to being through us.

~ James Hollis
