Authenticity Matters

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

2021, Respect Your Self

No matter what your goals plans or intentions are for the up coming new year, ( diet, exercise, money, career, relationships … ) cultivating a positive and loving relationship with yourself, the real you, is an essential first step to having your dreams come true. 🦋

 

The Only Change

The moment of living authentically is the only change. 🦋

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.

~ Don Miguel Ruiz 🦋

Everything Is Going To Be Alright.

Coach Judit

Everything is going to be alright. Intuitively, we know this. We also know that we are strong, powerful and resilient.

Globally, we know that the pandemic will flatten, the dust will settle and we will return to normal, a slightly altered normal but normal nevertheless.

Let us remember…

That cool heads prevail, to discern the facts from the drama. To be informed but to stop news binging. To talk ourselves down from our anxiety by disproving our fear based inner dialogue with actual facts. 

And …

To breath deeply, to reduce our anxiety quickly and naturally.

To journal about our thoughts and feelings with pen and paper.

Review our options.

To think creatively.

Act responsibly, follow the rules laid out by our government and medical officials.

Focus our attention on daily random acts of kindness, ours and others.

Fear is normal, leverage it, get proactive, creative and productive.

Also …

Clean, organize and purge your home, car, office, electronic files ….

Start that creative project you’ve been thinking about.

Learn something new, read watch a documentary or e-learning …

Go for walks in the park. Play with your children. Jog. Meditate. Workout …

Reach out with a helping hand to the vulnerable and frail in your community.

Mend those fences, forgive and make peace.

Watch or listen to comedy! Dance! Listen to nature sounds, meditative music and your favourite bands, musicians.

Engage …

This is our time to govern our thoughts and feelings, open our heart and reach out to others with a helping hand and kindness.

If there was ever a time to have an immersive self-empowerment experience it’s now. Consciously, let us embody our authentic power and move forward with our innate creative power.

You are not alone, we are in this crisis together …

If you have positive, empowering, proactive, or pragmatic thoughts and recommendations to share, please comment below. 🦋

Life’s Secret Sauce …

Self-love is a divine illumination that liberates our hearts and minds to be an authentic force for the goodness of ourselves and others. It is the secret sauce for a beautiful life lived well.

Self-love is the transformative alchemy we are all searching for to fix our messy lives, to cast out the darkness from our hearts, to right our wrongs, to breakthrough the barriers of our misguided creations, to reimagine our destiny and to recommit ourselves to the infinite wisdom of our collective oneness – we are in this game together.

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. 🦋

Listen to Live Authentically

When we listen to the whispers of our soul and the call of our heart, life seems to align to our authenticity and we begin to create and live from our own natural flow. 🦋

Recalibrating Self

Being authentic is an ongoing process – our false sense of self recalibrating to our inherent worth. It is not a panacea for perfection rather it is our commitment to feel that we are enough, complete and whole. 🦋

Invest in Yourself

When we invest in ourselves, it is a commitment that lasts forever.

Invest in your mind, body, education, creativity and experiences, that guarantee a lifetime of personal and professional empowerment. 🦋

Odyssey, A Return Home

The return home to Self is an Odyssey, a journey of love, appreciation and respect.🦋

The Beguiling Pull of Resistance

The difference between an authentic life and a life by default is the willingness to overcome the beguiling pull of resistance, to rest in the security of what is known, to sustain the comfortable, easy and safe status quo. 🦋

‘I’

There is an authentic ‘I’ within the ‘I Am’. The divine vessel that holds the authentic vision, the sacred code of our becoming. Do you feel her? 🦋

C.R.A.P.

Fear is temporary. Regret is forever. Faith is courage. 🦋

A Welcoming Heart

We do not need to seek out love for we are love, the life force that birthed and cradles us throughout our life time. When we welcome the fullness of love into our consciousness, we organically recognize our authenticity and a new vista of possibilities emerge out of the shadows. 🦋

Today Is Tomorrow

Today Is My Tomorrow. It’s Up To Me To Create It, To Do My Best And Inhabit Every Moment. My Power Is In My Authenticity, My Highest Vision Of A Deeply Satisfying Life And The Choices I Make Each Day. 🦋

Ignite Your Empowerment

Self-Knowledge is a transformative force that ignites your empowerment and lights up your life. 🦋

My Life’s Purpose?

What is the deepest singular intention of your life? 🦋

Less Perfection …

Less perfection, more authenticity. 🦋

Lovingly Unmasked …

Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.

I use the word “love” here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace – not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.

~ James Baldwin

Remembering

It’s like coming home from a long trip … that is what remembering who we are is like. It’s coming home. 🦋

Our Ultimate Superpower

Our authenticity is our ultimate superpower for absolutely every aspect of our life.

Imagine how your life would be different if you dared to live the real you.

Revolutionary 2018

The most revolutionary thing that you can do in 2018 and beyond, is to own your authentic self and live your own unique story.

The Visionary

The visionary is the one who brings his or her voice into the world and who refuses to edit, rehearse, perform, or hide.

It is the visionary who knows that the power of creativity is aligned with authenticity.

Behaviour Reveals All

There are no secrets that behaviour does not reveal.

Setting Boundaries …

Setting boundaries is healthy self-care. When we say ‘no’ without guilt or shame, we are signalling self-respect, integrity and our commitment to living our lives authentically.

Authenticity … Living Me, Myself and I .

~ Judit e. Szabo

Betrayal Is Ugly …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--BETRAYAL

On my morning walk today I passed by a quaint grove of trees … not sure why but the grove stirred up thoughts of the events that occurred in the Garden of Gethsemane, thousands of years ago … events that concluded in crucifying betrayal … betrayal is ugly, it messes with our brain, it shuts down our heart, it rattles our soul … it is the juice that drama thrives on … disloyalty, treachery, infidelity … friends, lovers, husbands, wives, co-workers, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons … all betrayal is a searing life experience … but the one betrayal that doesn’t seem to receive much consideration … the one that I believe trumps all machinations of duplicity is self-betrayal … our sincere need to belong, to be loved, comfortable, safe, secure can unwittingly lead us to give up on our true-self … our hopes and dreams, our gifts and talents, our passions … silently mediocrity starts to seep in through our pores and take root in our lives … that is of course until we decide to choose differently and begin to reclaim our authentic ‘I Am’.

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--AUTHENTICITY

Taking A Stand?

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--EXAMPLE

Does you behavior and presence align with your authentic self… your purpose, passion, perspective…?

Is your example ego based or heart and soul based?

Are you taking a stand for fear or truth?

Authentic Willingness…

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--AUTHENTICITY

The key to changing the world, to changing your life, and to empowering those around you is authenticity…the willingness to be yourself…the willingness to be vulnerable…the willingness to feel…the willingness to live…by eradicating the judgment that you’ve imposed on yourself and society has opposed on you.

~ Panache Desai

The Key To Everything …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--ENLIGHTENMENT

Enlightenment is the key to everything,

and it is the key to intimacy,

because it is the goal of true authenticity.

~ Marianne Williamson

Do You …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--PATHWAY

Drink from your own wells.

Sup at your table.

Speak from your own heart.

Go where your legs take you.

Know your own mind.

See through your soul’s eyes.

Follow none but your own self.

For each man has his own pathway, and whoever would be your guide cannot help but lead you astray.

Marcus Tullius Tiro

Becoming Authentic…

LIVING SUCCESS 3D-RISK

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Make The Truth Visible…

The visionary is the one who brings his or her voice into the world and who refuses to edit, rehearse, perform, or hide. It is the visionary who knows that the power of creativity is aligned with authenticity.

We Are Powerful Beyond Measure…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

~ Marianne Williamson

Appreciative Inquiry:

When do I tend to give myself permission to shine?

When do I tend to play small…what am I afraid of?

What core beliefs drive my shrinking and shining patterns?

How would I define my light…what are my strengths, my gifts and talents, my purpose and passion?

How does my presence uplift and inspire people?

The Power Experiment:

Write down 100 qualities that you love, respect or appreciate about yourself (yes, you do have at least 100).

For 21 consecutive days, read out-loud your 100 qualities and begin to feel the gloriousness of who you truly are.

Throughout the course of a week in a non-judgmental manner, observe how you shrink or shine in different situations.

Ask yourself if you are willing and ready to change…to shine more and shrink less.

If you are willing and ready to change, then from a place of loving kindness, service and a deep desire to add value, begin to show up more fully and observe how your presence, your words, your deeds empowers and inspires others to do the same.

Ripples:

Sharing our triumphant stories of how we have succeeded in a personal or professional situation can positively inspire men and women to take action for themselves which in turn creates ripples of enlightenment, empowerment and transformation worldwide. In the comments section, I invite you to share your experience of liberating yourself from your own fears and how your life, work and leadership has changed for the better. Thank you for sharing and choosing to make a difference.

Transformational Workshop:

When you choose to embrace  and express your true power, you begin to transcend your core fears and you awaken to happiness, peace of mind, freedom, a deep sense of self-worth, wholeness and confidence. If you are experiencing challenges with embracing your authentic power, please contact me at juditszabo@quantumv.ca to inquire about a personalized one-on-one or group workshop.

Celebrating Crackpots

A water bearer had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection. And miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. I have been able to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.

The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw. So I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house?

~ Unknown (China or India)

Appreciative Self-Inquiry:

  1. What are the lessons of this parable? (Eg. Self-Esteem, Self-Respect, Diversity, Authenticity, Perspective …)
  2. How can I integrate these lessons into my own life, at work and leadership?
  3. Who are the celebrated crackpots in our world? How do/did they add value, positively influence humanity or make a difference?

* When you have a moment, I would love your feedback on inquiry #3. Many Thanks Judit.
