Step Boldly Into Your Magnificence

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
– Marianne Williams

You would step boldly into your magnificence if you take to heart the above quote from Marianne Williams book,  A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”.

Do you minimize your accomplishments or shrink into the woodwork when it’s your time to shine?

Are you settling for less than you deserve in your personal life, career or social connections?

If your personal life is out of sorts, you’re stuck in an unfulfilling career, relationships and spend more time focused on other people’s problems, you are falling short of your magnificence.

To step boldly into your magnificence, I offer you the following suggestions:

  • Change your conversation – When you encounter people who speak negative, you notice it won’t be long before you start to speak in the same way.  Begin interjecting more positive talk into your conversations. Speak with integrity and refrain from engaging in negative conversations and meaningless activities that take away valuable time that could be spent developing magnificence.
  • Practice self mastery – Strive for excellence in your conversations, your actions and reactions. This is where you begin to shift your mindset which influences your behavior in becoming magnificent.   A very practical and powerful guide to living magnificently can be found in The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Michael Ruiz. Simply put, the four agreements are:

1.   Be Impeccable With Your Words
2.  Don’t Take Anything Personally
3.  Don’t Make Assumptions
4.  Always Do Your  Best

These four agreements are a practical guide for living authentic, confident, and in harmony with your best self.

Here are a few additional suggestions to step boldly into your magnificence:

  • Attract magnificence – Once you commit to striving for excellence, the next step is when you turn your attention to others who are magnificent. Like attracts like.  And when you are fully committed to magnificence, you will attract others who are focused and committed to living their best life.
  • Take a risk – We all have faced challenges, obstacles, conflicts and struggles.  And we must not let these things stop us from taking risks.  Certainly, I don’t mean anything dangerous or harmful but to carefully consider stretching yourself to do more, achieve more and be more! Playing safe is a direct path to regret.
  • Dare to be different – No one knows better than you what you want. So, set your own expectations and guide for your life.  Trying to live up to someone else’s expectations for you is a sure way to sabotage your magnificence.

Show up bold, confident and step into your limelight.  The world is waiting for you!
