Invincibility does not imply that you will never feel overwhelmed; nor does it suggest that you will never fall flat on your face or rip your pantyhose right before a major presentation. It doesn’t indicate that everyone will like you; in fact, some people will probably feel intimidated around you. It doesn’t even suggest that you won’t have days when you feel invisible. It in no way means that bad things won’t happen, that you will never fail, and that some days you won’t feel like giving up because life got just too hard.
To be invincible means that you will handle whatever shows up in your life purposefully and powerfully, even when you don’t feel like it. You may not know the answer to every question in front of you, but you know that the answer will appear when the timing is perfect.
Life will still present us with circumstances that we are positive we’re not qualified to handle. However, at our core, we’re certain that although we may not know what to do now, at some point, we will. We invincibles have access to the resources to help us through any situation. If the questions are important enough to us, we’ll get them answered.
Being invincible means that we are 100 percent accountable for our lives. It means that we “own” every last thing that’s going on—because we know, at some level, that everything that’s happening is serving our best and highest good. The task is to figure out what that is; to glean the wisdom from it; to use it to fulfill our life purpose; and to create positive impact. There are no exceptions to this universal principle.
If we had a members only club, this would our charter.
- We trust ourselves—(as a rule and with exceptions).
- We know our worth and are unwilling to compromise it (except when we forget, and then we have great friends to remind us).
- We live our values (except when we forget, and then we self-correct)
- We neither diminish who we are nor what we do (ditto #2).
- We know the difference we make (except for the times we’re in denial).
- We’re committed to becoming more of who we are—without exception.
Invincibility is a lifestyle choice, a way of being in the world. Its magic lies in the fact that we can relinquish the cloak of invisibility and make the choice to show up invincibly in our lives at any time—in an instant! Like everything else in life, it’s a choice.
Something to contemplate: When you’re in the midst of making an important decision, one that requires you to be purposeful, powerful and passionate, ask yourself this question:
“Am I running away from my invisibility or am I running toward my invincibility?”
