SHOWING UP AS THE FEARLESS YOU

Have you ever wondered what the fearless version of you would be like?

I have. I’ve thought about this a lot over the years but it’s only recently that I’ve gained clarity on how you’re able to effortlessly show up as the fearless you without willpower and struggle.  It’s a shift in your mind that happens by seeing through the built up layers of thought about who you think you are.  You’ve been conditioned throughout your life to think that you’re not okay as you are and you need to change how you show up in the world so you can be more effective or impressive.

When I was in my late teens I used to read a lot of psychology and personal development and would wonder a lot about the nature of the self-constructed personality.  I could see clearly that we make up our personality but I forgot that truth over the years as I worked hard on myself to become a better person.  If our image of ourselves is constructed through our own thoughts, why waste years working hard to try and change ourselves?  When you see the truth of this, layers of misunderstanding about who you are and who you need to be, drop away.  It’s a bit like the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly. You shed your skin but it isn’t the end of your life; it’s the beginning of a new one.

These days I love to guide my clients to be more of who they really are, rather than trying to fix the areas where they think they’re broken.  It’s an inside-out transformation.  The message from society is one of continuous self-improvement in order for you to be good enough. It’s no wonder there’s an epidemic of stress and anxiety induced symptoms, running rife.  The moment you give yourself permission to be yourself is when extraordinary events occur. When you show up as the true you, you are naturally fearless.  It’s the misunderstanding of you needing to be a different way to be accepted and loved that creates an illusion of separation from your true self and from those around you. This is why you can be lonely in a crowd. Your body is present but your thoughts are elsewhere.

In my work as a Transformation Coach I point my clients to principles of what’s always true in life. This reveals solid ground for them to stand on because even when life throws them a curveball they quickly find their footing again, instead of falling flat on their face.  I’ve learned that having less on your mind is the most powerful way for you to show up as the fearless you. Fears of being judged and looking stupid come from ego even though we often don’t realise it.

So how do you show up with less on your mind? You accept that you’re human and in so doing, your mind is free to be available to be fully present in the moment.  It turns out that living in the moment really does transform your experience of …  well everything.  There’s no need to create big, detailed plans; in fact it can be counter-productive. It’s a bit like trying to plan how to surf when standing miles away from the sea. You won’t be able to ride the waves until they’re in front of you.  No zen practice is required. You don’t need to practice being mindful or to meditate unless you really enjoy the process. Your mind’s natural state is to reset to the wellbeing button. I call this the fearless you.
