Always remember, everything that is happening is not happening to you, it is happening, for you. The pains of life are distractions. If you quiet the noise from the distractions, you will be able to hear and see what your next journey in life is. The reality is that success lays dormant and behind all the distractions.

 

Your take away is this, success is always dependent on your choices. Those choices come from how you respond to the distractions. When silence exists in your life, things become clear. Make sure you look past the distractions and take full advantage of the opportunities that come your way. Those doors with opportunities don't always open right away nor do they stay open for very long.

 

If you follow these steps, clarity can develop 

  • Do a gratitude journal

  • Write out 10 i AM’s

  • Meditate

  • Exercise

  • Eat a Light breakfast (Green smoothie)

  • Listen to musical instrumentals or videos on success

How did we get here ?

Whatever happened in the past is over. Do not dwell on past mistakes. There's no point in crying over spilt milk. Everybody makes mistakes. It's what you learn from your mistakes and promising yourself not to repeat them that matters. 

 

I grew up the BlackSheep in every environment I was apart of. I mean BlackSheep in the most negative connotation. I’m not sure if my size, stature, color, voice, the way I saw myself or if my temperament had anything to do with peoples expectations and treatment of me. Maybe it was the environment I grew up in. Which was a very unsafe and violent place, violent in the sense of physically, mentally and emotionally. I felt lost, confused, heavy, misunderstood, taken advantage of, treated differently and targeted. Have you ever felt like you were in a constant war? In that war you were never safe, which meant you had to wear armor to protect your self from being harmed during the attacks. That was me, I always felt attacked. 

 

People would mistake my armor of protection for armor of war. My reality was that I was and I am a builder, protector and fixer for those around me, especially those who were, unsure, hurt, afraid, voiceless, invisible, blind, weaker or smaller.

The epiphany I recently had was, I felt like I didn’t have a place where I could take my armor off, where I could relax, a safe place that was war free. That created some real issues. In my mind I just wanted to be free, but I also didn’t want anyone else to experience my challenges.

Are you a builder, protector and fixer?

I wasn’t a lead the pack kind of guy, due to the kind of attacks that I experienced as a black sheep. I never wanted attention, but attention always demanded me. Being a black sheep wasn’t a conscious choice or even a desire, the blessing of being a black sheep can go either way, positive or negative. So I made a decision, if attention was going to demand me, I would be sure to make sure that what I was doing was worth paying attention to.

I guess the movie, “Divergent” was right. “Great Leaders Don't Seek Power. They're Called By Necessity”. Even though my environment showed a lack of hope and progression, I would not stop. Just like you, I wanted to be great and do great things, I just didn't know how to be great and do great things but, I did learn to stand on my story and not live in it. 

Being able to stand on my story and grow through all the battles, wars, lions tigers and bears, I experienced, led others to pay attention to me as a beautiful BlackSheep and not the negative black sheep the world saw me as. My understanding now, is that I was called by necessity to become a leader and a guide those who inspire and advocate for my community and beyond, so that we can all become great and stand on our stories too. With that call from necessity, I now take full responsibility to assist those who are looking to take the next step in their life's journey.

If you or someone you know is a black sheep then 4YourEpiphany was built just for you and for them too. Come with us and learn to stand on your own story, and find where your greatness exists and we will help you attach to success so you can do great things and become great! 

"I can't be worried about fitting in when I AM custom made.
 I've been me my whole life. Now that I found my POWER,
I take responsibility for me!"
