"The Beauty of People"

Why do you act in this world?

Because I have a fire within me and I cannot not act. I am fired up, and yet I wasn’t always fired up. So this for me is also new, since about January 7th 2014, when I went to Live Your Legend global meetup. Before that I was very lost.

Out of personal curiosity, what made you lost?

I don’t know that I ever knew anything but conformity. I did all the stereo typical things and it didn’t feel satisfying and yet I didn’t know what else was outside of that realm. So I accepted the norm; most weekends consisted of partying with my friends and it left me unsatisfied. It took a couple of personal situations to get the realization that “there’s got to be a better way.”

 

What makes you think that you make a difference?

It goes back to what I first said, because now I am so congruent and aligned; my passion and my purpose drive me. There is no such word as work, I am fueled by this cycle—I serve, and I get so much back in return and it thrills me. When you are in that environment it flows.

 

What gives you hope for the future?

A conference like World Domination Summit—that’s why I am here. I am here to meet other likeminded people. I know there are so many of us and we could be making massive changes today and we are in our own way. I actually think for all the devastating things I see in the world, we also have amazing things happening. They are of course not at the speed I would love to see, and yet there is a light.

People are fired up and wanting to do more and better and leave the world a better place and I love it.

 

If you were to condense what gives you hope into three words or a very, very short sentence, what would it be?

Community…

Okay… just one word, which is totally fair…

I am thinking…

The fire and energy from other people. Feeding off of each other. Energy, everything is energy.

Everything we do is energy and we can choose how positive we want to make that energy.

“Choosing positive energy”

 

When I have a sad Sunday and don’t know what to do, if you could make me do one thing on Sad Sunday, what would it be?

I totally understand what a Sad Sunday is. I would make you meditate for ten minutes in the morning or anytime that you feel like you need to. Tab into your feelings, feeling your emotion through and through.

 

Thank you!
