Monday Motivator-Conformity Is Death!

Bold statement huh? Yeah I'd say so. Seriously though when we are being our true authentic selves and operating in our areas of strength we struggle less to conform to ideals or cultures or environments that are not in alignment with who we are. If you have ever felt dissatisfied in a situation, work or personal that you feel is requiring you to dramatically alter who you are, then it may be a good time to take stock of whether or not you are in the right situation for you. For example, If you are a creative person with a need to express yourself through art, and your environment is highly bureaucratic or formal it may lead to a great deal of frustration as you may likely find yourself suppressing your natural tendencies or desires. 

If you strongly desire to be in a particular field and you do not mind conforming to it's ideals because there are other benefits that you gain from being there, that is awesome. However, the moment you feel a disconnect, chances are you are not in alignment with where you are.

Yes, I get it that sometimes we have to do what we have to do; however, there is also a school of thought that when we believe strongly in who we are and spend our time nurturing and developing that person, eventually we will find ourselves in that place of 'perfect fit'. When we are forced to be something or someone that we are not, we are not living our truth and often times end up feeling miserable day in and day out. Let's find the courage to be who we are meant to be and find places where we are 'celebrated and not just tolerated'.

Go out and be your true authentic self, find out who that is and make it your life's mission to live that out. Conformity is death. The spirit dies, hopes and dreams are buried when we decide to just accept our situations and our 'lot in life'.

Be blessed,
