“I love the idea of the big life – the life that matters, the life that makes a difference. The life where stuff happens, where people take action. The opposite of the life where the girl can’t even speak to the boy she likes; the opposite of the life where the friends aren’t even good friends, and lots of days are wasted away feeling bored and kind of okay, like nothing matters much.” - E. Lockhart
The below is an excerpt from an article by Michael Port, author of four NY Times Bestsellers, including Book Yourself Solid. I felt the message was perfectly aligned with that of The Conscious Life Project, and I had to share: You are here to play a BIG game! Have the courage to follow your heart for it never leads you down the wrong path.
Wash away the white noise, the ambient poison disseminated by the wild gremlins, the grim chorus of family, friends, colleagues, and others whose insidious chant of negativity has ensured the perpetuation of small thinking from generation to generation, from home to school, from graduation to retirement.
You can’t do it. It’s silly. It’s been done before. You’re not worthy. You’re a fraud. You’re wasting your time. Why bother.
Lies. All Lies.
Recognize the lies. The so-called reality you are fed is nothing more than a media-mediated docudrama, a reenactment, an extreme makeover of the truth. Others do not always know better than you, quite the opposite.
To think big is to know there is no absolute knowing, except the knowledge that big things are possible. Know that you cannot know (and neither can the so-called judges who have tried to pretend they have all the answers).
You are not here to judge or be judged.
If other people try to project their limited views of the world onto you, don’t accept it. You are here to act with good purpose in the world, to tap into your own vital capacity to think big and do big things in the world.
