I have NEVER felt more immense Power than the way I felt after finally removing my mask. The mask is the protection most of us use to cover up who we truly are, while only showing what we feel others want to see. Because of the deep fear we have of being seen.
I simply decided to leave my past behind. My hurt, my traumas, my mistakes, my tragedies, and failures. And I did my best to take the lessons that were to be learned from these events and apply them to the present. I had to come to the upmost understanding that rage, anger, and being the victim wasn't serving me. In fact it was killing me slowly
Inherently I knew that I was created for a Greater purpose. To fulfill a path that only I could complete. But first I had to get out of my own way to do so. I needed to realize that the program I had been running was not for me, and it never was. It was simply instilled in me because that's what I felt everybody else was doing
But there was so much pain I held, so much anger. And I realized not only had it become so engrained within me, I had become accustomed to it, and I clung to it like an addiction. Who would I be without my pain, how could I react without anger? There are so many components that it was dizzying to think about. But I knew it had to be done. Unfortunately there was no magic pill to be swallowed or magic spell to be cast. But simply a decision to be made and a daily step to be taken. With that came the empowering knowledge that the old ways were to be forsaken and I was to move into the man I was meant to be all along.
So here is the #challenge
I leave for the many of you that carry an unbearable emptiness inside.
Ask yourself what is it that you're missing? What are your roadblocks that are preventing you to become the man or woman God created you to be? And what are you willing to do to achieve it?
This challenge isn't for the complacent or the faint of heart. This is for those that are ready and willing to get out of their own way, no matter what dreadfulness has occurred in their past and frightening obstacles that wait ahead. I'm searching for the Warriors, Leaders, and Risk Takers! I Welcome you to #WarriorWork
