Just Do You!

Just do you | Yes, We Rise

Some folks are just born creative. Even in their sleep, the things that come to their mind would baffle the average person. Then there are the folks that ALWAYS have a "brilliant" idea, new business proposition, great topic for a book or even invention. You know the kind of person, they always have some kind of "side gig" or hustle they are working on. They have so much going on you need a score card to keep up with where they are and what they are up to at any given point and time.

I'll be honest...these folks have always befuddled me. I always wondered how it is that they can have so much going on. From my perspective it was always a case of "too much attention on everything, not enough attention on one thing."  Until...

See...when I really got uncomfortable where I was and with what I was doing, I too started to grab on to different ideas and concepts. I was all over the place. Sometimes, I still am. It isn't that we're scattered, but we're searching.  Its only natural. When we get to the point that we recognize that our current space and situation no longer fits who and where we are, we start to get antsy and looking for a new place to call home. Unfortunately, too many of us get lost and never seem to find "our place."

Finding our place requires that we do the work necessary to understand who we are and what we are on this earth to do. We can strive to create the ideal situation as much as we want, but until we have connected with our spirits and searched our souls and come to peace with all that we are being told and shown, we will continue struggle. The ideas come because we are brilliant people. Sometimes they teach us something about ourselves or put us on a quest for information that we will later use. That is not to say, that every idea is for us to implement. Some are just ideas and we should let them pass. Others are for us to share and inspire someone else.

We have to stop wasting so much time playing Don Quixote and chasing windmills. Focus on what you know to be true for you... stop chasing money, or fame. Resolve to only respond and act on those things that bring you peace and settle in your spirit like truth. If it feels like work, makes you feel uneasy or something you think is a temporary fix,  its probably not your true calling.

Russell Simmons wrote a book entitled "Do You!" in it he says,

"In my experience, there's only one thing that will always steer you toward success. That's to have a vision and to stick with it...once I have a vision for a new venture, I'm going to ride that vision until the wheels come off."  -Russell Simmons

Stop letting the distractions of new and unknown keep you from going for yours. Grab hold to your true vision...and roll with it. Let the other stuff go... Just Do You!
