To Have Abundance, Start by being Yourself
by Julio Blanco

Your best chance of having abundance in life starts with being yourself – lumps and all.

You see, you were created with a combination of talents that only you possess and, from birth, your heart was predisposed toward passions that signal your purpose in life. Only if you embrace your authentic self can these talents and desires surface in their full magnificence and the gift you were created to deliver be given in its full power.

Have you ever felt out of alignment, living a life that did not fit you? If so, you were likely not being your true self. I had that feeling often during my 18 years in Corporate America where I enjoyed a fruitful marketing career but, often felt that my spirit was being force-fitted into a box two sizes too small. The cloak and dagger politics, the silly games, the snuffing out of creativity; they all went against my basic grain day in a day out.

As a result, a layer of resistance emerged in my work, which was always lurking just beneath the surface. It was a good thing too because this was my internal compass sending me a loud and clear signal. The resistance was the tension between my true self and who the corporate environment was asking me to be. The result was that I was a house divided – the passionate part of me wanting to do great work and the part of me resisting because it was not the life I was meant to live. I was pushing the accelerator with the other foot on the brakes. The result was that I did just OK when my talent suggested I was capable of much more. I was selling myself short, as well as the work, by not being in complete alignment with my authentic self.

The thing is, I didn’t put the pieces together until Corporate America and I parted company. The transition to entrepreneurship put me in a setting that, in many ways, liberated me to come back to the person I always wanted to be. The resistance is gone, because I am BEING who I was created to BE. And the results have been amazing – my life now has more passion and power than ever and my dreams are materializing before my very eyes.

Why is being your true self so critical to achieving the abundance you desire? Consider these reasons:

Congruence.

Being yourself requires that you be congruent inside and out. This leads to clarity and clarity is a prerequisite for attracting what you desire.

Courage.

Being authentic takes courage – the kind of courage you need to succeed as a conscious entrepreneur living your values in your business. It is the courage that will sustain you in the face of fear when you step outside your comfort zone to do and achieve what you had allowed yourself to believe was impossible.

Commitment.

Being authentic takes commitment. It is a commitment to owning your mindset, your actions, and the results in your life, with no excuses.

Passion.
