this young guy is 18 and he has that 18 year old studly thing and I have this swag stud no limit kind of vibe when I feel like turning it on and so we started talking about cranking up energy and being open to experience
and I told him "when I lived in California and worked as an actor, if I was 'in a movie', I believed I BELONGED in this movie -- partly due to the fact that YOU HIRED ME instead of the other 10,000 wannabees who would like to be in this, so obviously I am here, I'm an actor !! -- and so you just have to 'own' that wherever you ARE, you belong there if you want to BE there"
and it was actually kind of fun telling him a little about my "past" and what it was like when I was younger -- how as a young man it was my "job" when I went out with my friends in college to walk over to a full table of women and pick up ALL of them and then my cowardly ass friends would come over later
or how as an IT executive I would take jobs that I didn't actually KNOW HOW TO DO . . . and because I had a "vibe of confidence" I could learn as I went, since most people cannot feel confident in those situations
and of course, there is my "body", my instant street cred in the gym I must have done something right "door opener"
my ability to "own" my self-confidence bought me time to learn -- and I always LEARNED what I needed to know and eventually excelled at it -- before my confidence "front" wore out
LIMITATIONS are learned . . . fear is the fuel that reinforces this "learning"
my advice to him and my advice to anyone else -- don't let people set YOUR limitations
we were talking about my age and I said "well I guess I am in pretty good shape for 61 -- not a lot of people could do this"
and he blurted out "NO ONE COULD DO IT !!"
so . . . bottom line, own your power; be a cocky swagmeister glitterlicious UNICORN
and don't buy into the "model" of what you can't do
get off your ass and own the glitter
truth, baby . . . the gospel fuckn truth
LIMITATIONS are learned . . . my advice?
learn something else :) !!
