Showing Up vs. Showing Off

Showing Up vs. Showing Off

Most of us wake up everyday trying to prove something, convince others as well as ourselves that we are successful, intelligent, smart, strong, beautiful, smart, and worthy. It reflects is what we wear, drive, who we surround ourselves with, and how we behave. Because if we can prove it, it means that maybe we are worth something. Valuable, lovable. But this process keeps us in a false state. We become walking billboards. If you think life is about proving, you’re going to have an exhausting lonely one.

Turn you dial to showing up instead of showing off. That means first accepting. Who you are. Everything about you that sets you apart and makes you feel “weird”. Understand that it’s the meat, not crust. Where you’re at in your journey. Everything you struggle with and a desire to know why. Your story, no matter how shitty you feel it is. It’s yours and there’s a reason why you have it. Know that you are building, working toward your potential. You want a a life, a real one? A three dimensional one? Then you must turn your dial to showing up, and lock it there. What would that look like in your life? At work. In your relationships? On Facebook?

We can smell showing off like bad acting. But it’s not about us. It’s about you and facing and embracing your truth. That’s when you’re the most powerful. That’s when you will impact the most.

It’s only then will you arrive.

Keep leaning forward. (1)
