You’re not here to play small
Be wise and adult enough to read past the (softened) cuss word to the point of this quote…
You’re here to be you.
You’re here to bring what you bring without a dimmer switch.
Like I always say; people can buy shades and sit quietly in a back row if they can’t handle your brilliance.
Don’t dim your light, volume, passion, knowing or purpose for anyone.
If things get tough, be tougher…
If folk want to mould you into mild, walk away and rise and rise and rise.
You’re not here to play small.
Small does the world a disservice.
Live in all your bones,
live out loud,
own your life.
We need your light like we need the sun.
You’re an essential part of life.
Nobody is a nobody.
YOU ARE someone.
Someone who’s meant to be here.
Someone who makes a difference.
Someone who’s allowed.
You are enough.
I’m so glad you’re here.
Forward we go,

Roll the dice a hundred and one
It’s ultimately not about losing or winning, it’s casting your roll again and again.
That’s where you’ll find yourself breathing the fullest, that’s where you find yourself living out loud.
No matter what happens, get up and roll again…
As Rumi said – “Your life has been a mad gamble.
Make it more so.
You have lost now a hundred times running.
Roll the dice a hundred and one.”
Never give in, look back or give away what you truly believe in…
If someone called your child ugly, a waste of time or hopeless, would you feel embarrassed and walk away and abandon them?
Don’t treat your brain ‘babies’ any less precious…
Don’t believe the illusion of knock backs, rejections or other peoples opinions.
They’re not a sign for you to give up on what you believe in…
It doesn’t matter what others think.
It matters that YOU believe in your dreams and you protect them, help them grow and take their place in the world.
Whenever negative feedback is sent your way, grab the energy from it and transmute it into fierce fuel for your goal.
Never give in, look back or give away what you truly believe in.
Firewood is awesome and that’s what adversity is.
Make sure you burn that sweet load into fuel.
It’s not here to be carried.
It’s yours to pyromaniac.
Remember that and fierce forward!
Dr Lynika Cruz
So don’t beat yourself up when you’re going through some of the less enjoyable bits…
Life is a medley.
No matter what you do there will be easier and not so easier times.
What matters is that you back yourself.
24/7 you have your human self to care for.
Treat that being with integrity and respect.
Your self care impacts the whole world for the greater good.
It makes you a whole being who by proxy gives permission and inspiration for others to do the same.
Take care of yourself and shine on my friend
Don’t dim your power for anyone
Power shot for you my friend…
Last week I quoted Ronda while speaking to a brilliant audience (at Aaron Sansoni’s Entrepreneurs Summit) with Netflix Co-founder Mark Randolph
So to YOU my wise friend, today (or any day) should you encounter someone who wants you to shrink to please them (or to fit a so called status quo)… breathe in deep and take up all that rightful, valuable space in yourself.
Never back down on backing and investing in yourself. You were born to be you. Don’t dim your power for anyone…
Authenticity, self-respect, bravery, permission to be ALL that you are… the world not only needs that stuff like insulin…
There are also others watching you, who by proxy will learn that it’s invaluable, imperative and necessary to back who they are without shame, without shrinkage or dissolution.
Go out there and live ALL that you are…
Makes me so darn proud and overjoyed when I see someone take up space and OWN their life.
Go, you good thing, GO live out loud.
I’m cheering you fierce from the sidelines, I believe in you, make sure YOU believe in you and don’t back down…
If your light is too bright, others can be warmed and inspired by it or buy shades and sit respectfully in a back row.
Shine on my friend!
Where the real light is…
Most of your hard yakka is done behind closed doors but I know you’re a champion.
Immense respect to you for showing up in your life each day for another round.
Through adversity and daily challenges, you keep at it, chiselling away, quiet and determined.
Even when you’re beat and nobody’s cheering you on or ‘liking’ your efforts aloud behind the scenes.
Remember to respect how insanely amazing and worthy you are.
I’m not blinded by showiness or public claims of grandeur… I see in the dark where the real light is; YOURS.
We can dream and envision great things but without our consistent effort and fortitude, they remain dreams.
Your fortitude is not in vain, it’s the vehicle to success. It will take you there but you need to drive it.
Some added ‘elbow grease to success’ support quotes for your day…
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.”
“Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.”
“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.”
“The secret of success is consistency of purpose.”
“I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work.”
