Willingness to be uncomfortable is the key to greatness. In order to grow, you have to become comfortable with being uncomfortable.....and you also have to be comfortable with making OTHERS uncomfortable. You cannot let your self-consciousness stop you from living into the the total awesomeness that you were meant to be.
1) Show up as the greatness of you.
Don't apologize for being the kickass person you are. Don't 'hide your lamp under a bushel (Matt 5:15)' and tailor yourself to meet the expectations of others. Screw those guys...if they can't accept all of you, then kick them to the curb.
2) Create your life in a way that works for you.
Life is too short to spend it living one designed by everyone else. Be you. Be unique. Leave your mark on the world. Live where you want and do what you dream.
3) Have too much fun.
Fill your life with all those experiences you've always wanted to have. At the end of the day, the most valuable things we collect are memories.
4) Create more money than you deserve for what you do.
Give value. Give massive value. Share your gifts with the world and the world will repay you 10x over.
5) Not have any problems worth sharing.
There will be good days, there will be bad days. They say misery loves company, and it's not the company you want to keep. Ask for help when you need to, yet don't look for others to commiserate with.
6) Laugh too loud.
Laugh until your stomach hurts and tears stream down your face. Don't be afraid of the 'snort' or laughing so hard you can't breathe. Not only is laughing that hard contagious, science says it's good for you, too!
7) Refuse to hate your body.
Accept where you are, not who you are. You're a work in progress...if you don't like something about your body, work to change it. The human body is as moldable as clay...you simply need to work it.
8) Have no judgment of your family.
This is my challenge...at least over the last 2+ years. Your family is who they are, and they'll always see you as who they remember you as. Personal growth strains family relations the most, simply because you're growing and that makes people uncomfortable.
9) Spend your time however you desire.
Take care of yourself, first. You cannot effectively serve others if you don't serve yourself first. Don't change your mind just to make other people happy. If you want to do something, do it. Don't sacrifice yourself to make others happy....you'll simply end up miserable.
10) Enjoy being alive.
Every day you wake up on the right side of the ground is a good day...don't forget that. Remember that there is always, always, ALWAYS something to be grateful for. Some days that's simply seeing another sunrise.
You were meant to be awesome...and being awesome means being comfortable with making others uncomfortable.
