This morning after my alarm went off, I was grumbling to myself, as usual. “I should have gone to bed earlier- Why do I have to get up- I hate mornings- blahblahblah”. The phrase “Rule the world” just popped into my head. My snarky inner not-a-morning-person snapped “I don’t have to get up- I don't rule the world”. And then, this wise inner voice said, “Well, you certainly can’t rule the world from bed, so getting up is a good start.”
I was surprised at this sudden nugget of wisdom from myself, especially so early in the morning. And then I realized how useful that message is. So many of us, myself included, have grand dreams of all the things we want to do and the worlds we want to 'rule'. But our fears and self-imposed limitations keep us in our metaphorical beds. We don’t rule the world because we don’t get up and start trying. We stay in our comfort zone, with our heads under the covers, and avoid all the magic and delights that await us once we’re up.
We all have a grand purpose here, that’s the very reason we’re alive. We are ALL somebody important, each and every one of us. But we’ve been told that’s selfish and arrogant and inflated thinking. So we stay in bed instead, to avoid the pressure and the guilt of not living up to those big dreams. Or because we get a glimmer of how big our dreams really are and that scares the shit out of us.
Don’t fear your bigness- Embrace it.
Wake up! Get out of your comfy bed and Carpe Diem already!
The world needs whatever special brand of magic you're full of, so start sharing it.
Is your internal alarm clock trying to wake you up so you can rule your life? What if you get up today and see what’s in store? As for me, I’m off to see my wizard for more wisdom (that’d be Inner Me, in case you’re wondering)!
