I write to you today from the East Coast, sitting at the kitchen table of our rental home by the beach, feeling filled up with sunshine, ocean spray, and love (a.k.a. - play time with my family!). Vacations offer such sweet time to pause and reflect on how we're living our lives and what our priorities are here and back home. It has been a good week!
We have spent some of our downtime this week watching the Olympics, as I'm guessing many of you have also. It is incredible to witness the dedication and commitment that these athletes from around the world have made to following their dreams. They have pushed themselves beyond average limits to exceed extraordinary goals.
I'm always so curious - what does it take internally to reach that level?
This ad (video above) about Michael Phelps perhaps illustrates it best:
"Rule Yourself." So simple. SO powerful.
I am certainly not at the level of commitment and extreme focus in any area of my life that I see in these athletes physically. Yet! But I do believe we all have the capacity to "Rule" ourselves and bring our gifts to the world in our own unique ways.
Perhaps it's this practice of visualizing it first that can open the path for us. Seeing it, feeling it, and slowly believing it. Allowing space for it to take form and surprise us with its beauty.
Come practice visualizing with us this week on the Soul Shine call. We gather on Sunday live or you can listen to the recording later in the day or week. Space for you to explore how to "Rule Yourself." So fun!!
