“So, you’re telling me there’s a chance”
(I’ve been hearing a lot of “what happens if you don’t” lately.) This article is totally inspired by a wonderful post from my friend Marcella, a great video by Jonathan Budd, and a Mind-blowing “experience” compacted into an interview with Darryl Anka.
What happens if you quit your job, what happens if you leave this behind, what happens if you forget about this, what happens if you d.o. this……..but what happens if you d.o.n.t do this.
What happens if you don’t leave your complacent lifestyle and step into a threshold of unknowns–what growth, excitement, adventure, impact will you never see?
What happens if you don’t do a small action (design a wireframe, email a potential client, link up with someone a few steps ahead, tell someone their eyes are pretty…) The infinite possibilities are cut short. The places any of these actions, or steps can take you quickly dissappear.
(I’m shutting off the boiling water I have on the stove right now.) Because if I don’t shut it off, what will happen? what possibilities, what endless realities am I closing off? If I don’t shut it off, and write this post, whose thoughts won’t be shook and whose life won’t be changed. What impact won’t be made?
The truth is I don’t know.
(but that’s okay;) )
In life there are three things. What we know. What we don’t know. And What we don’t know we don’t know.
When we shut out the thoughts, premisces and belief’s of what we think we may know, we ultimately realize that all there is in life is “unknowns”. And when we except this, and embrace it we start living, working and moving from a different place. We move from a place of spirit. Of pure passion driving our every move.

(this is an hour long video and if you do decide to watch, consider breaking it up in chunks for time’s sake as well as taking it all in)
I came across this mind blowing video, from my buddy Jack who has served up just the right resources at just the right times for me and I strongly suggest you take a look at any of his site–he’s doing great work and the resources and videos on there will definitely serve you. This video above is on a Channel, interpreting and sharing his “reality” or take on life.
In short, he breaks up life as a movie reel. Each moment. Each minute instance as being one of billions of possible realities. When strung together with other billions of possible realities it creates this illusion of life as we experience it. Each in our own way.
This conceptual ideology, entangled with other metaphysical subjects, quantum theory, psychic phenomena, ESP, LOA (Law of Attraction), “power of thought” type stuff completely inspires me. It takes me to a different level of understanding that in each moment I have the power to create and design the next billionth infinite possibility of a reality, exactly how i want it.
Because we don’t know “anything”
and all we can assume is “unknowns” it makes everything “infinite possibility”. This is exciting as hell.
Whatever we want. We already have. We can possess it. It is already in our reality. The action is just letting go of what we need to let go of, in order to allow it to surface.
We are all born perfect right? the path of self growth and personal development is not about addition, but subtraction subtracting the variables that don’t propel us on our path. Letting go of the beliefs and predisposed judgements that are holding us back. It’s a filter process.
“Passion and excitement is the physical body’s translation of physical energy that represents who you are and who your core is” -Daryl Anka
When we get down to the core we are left with our true self. A self that only knows what it seems to value, and what it is driven by (in that particular instance). When we get down to our true self, learn what makes us tick, we begin to move in a different way. Because our life is now “infinite possibility” and because all we know is what energizes us in each instance, the only premise we have to move forward from, is to “follow our passions”.
Our passion is not derived by a choice or a thought, our passion only comes from action that coincides with our values, (or our essence). It is the feeling we get after we pursue an action that correlates with our true self.
The more we live in tune with our true self, the more life becomes seamless. Have you had someone or something pop into your life at just the right time? Have you ever felt that some fortuitous encounter was “meant to happen”. Think about what you did before or during that instance, that led you to that exact point. What thoughts/feelings were you listening to? what was driving you to that place that allowed for something to pop into your life at just the right time? Had you been pursuing actions that resonated with you? With your values? Or had u been pursuing actions that resonated with someone else’s values?
When we express ourself and live life by our passions, following our enthusiasm and inspirations, we vibrate on our true level. In doing so, we create space to connect with other, people, objects, places, things (events.. anything), that vibrate on this same or similar level.
There are certain things that vibrate with us more than others–but why? Because it connects with our values. Our values are essentially our inner vibration. They are the closest we can get to expressing in a physical form of what “moves us”.
When we come across someone or something that “resonates with us” or vibrates on our level, We feel awesome. We feel heard. We feel understood, supported and essentially, unconditionally loved. Because our movement, our purpose corresponds with theirs, it runs parallel. We become energy to push the other (person/movement/vibration/purpose/whatever) to where they need and want to be. This is our passion. This is our excitement.
So how do we make this happen more?
How do we make these instances of pure resonation, of true parallel vibration coincice and connect, and flow seamlessly into our lives?
We stay true to our core. we filter down to our essence.
It starts with being authentic.
With yourself. And with others. In order to share with the world who we truly are, unapologetically, with no shame, we need to first share with ourself. Learning who we are, precedes all of this. It is not a single step, but a path. Right now, I have no idea what completely propels me and excites me. But I have a pretty good idea, and that’s okay :) I’m a lot clearer than I was yesterday, or a year ago, and I can only assume tomorrow will bring me another step closer. Because clarity is gained with action.
Step 1. Learn yourself.
Step 2. Express yourself to yourself.
Step 3. Share yourself with others.
Rinse & Repeat.
Lately I have been on the fence about going down certain paths in my life and unsure of which road to take. I want to help people get more in tune with themselves, the world around them– so that life as they want it, can start flowing seamlessly into their existence.
I decided to continue building something to empower people to connect with their true core, their essence, because I believe getting in tune with yourself is the framework of living a life of intended purpose, of impact.

When was the last time you did something that “felt right”?
Why do you do the things you do? What drives you?
I look forward to seeing you in the comments :)
