I Want YOU!

Remember the classic image of Uncle Sam that encouraged Americans to enlist in the U.S. Army?  I want to borrow that theme, for the purposes of this blog and Pain-2-Power.  Because I want YOU, too.  I’m recruiting you into your own army, into your own service, if you will.

Why would I need to make that appeal?  Because the truth is that very few people are at one with themSELVES.  They live at a distance from their core and most powerful instincts, intuitions, abilities and potential.  It is work—wonderful work, but work, nonetheless—to close the gap between the “you” who is navigating the world today and the core “YOU” that could be navigating the world far more powerfully in days to come.

Why would the appeal to recruit YOU into the world matter to me?  First of all, it is my work in this world to empower others.  It matters to ME, in capital letters, at a core level.  Second, and more important, it matters to the world.  The world relies on you becoming yourSELF and sharing the gifts that are truly from your heart, soul and mind.  Those are the gifts that can enrich our shared existence—whether through the company you start, the art you create, the family you raise or the changes, rights, or issues you fight for.

Marianne Williamson, the author and activist, put it this way: “Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.”

Is it possible that YOU can’t be accessed or doesn’t exist—either through some accident of birth or because you have lived heretofore at a distance from your core or because you have suffered reversals or pain?  No.  Not ever.  YOU are waiting to be discovered and deployed.  And when YOU are ready, I am ready to help.

I want YOU.  (And so does everyone you know or will ever meet.  And so does the world.)
