We live in a world of eternal perfectionism and self-improvement. We want to be better, fitter, taller, smarter, more creative, more successful and so on. Per se constantly moving forward a great idea, but …
The question might be simple: who do we want to be?
I’m wondering on what scale we measure the perfect human we would like to be. We think of people who inspire us, the vegan bodybuilder with a million follower, the amazing beautiful fit-mom who manages it all and her husband gives her gifts, flowers and loves her to the moon and back, the millennial entrepreneur who made his first billion before 25. The list is endless.
But do we really, really believe that they don’t have challenges and they never suffer nor experience physical and mental pain? Do we really believe that they let go and are in the present moment all the time? Do we really believe that they never argue and never have to deal with rejection, a broken heart and haters? Do we really believe the others have the perfect life ?
I assure you: EVERYBODY goes through the same shit in their lives at different times.
Every successful entrepreneur I know has troubles sleeping, has to dedicate her/himself to the business and the free time, vacations and the worst thing the private life comes always short.
Every fit-mom with kids (who doesn’t have a cleaning lady and 5 baby sitters) struggles to organize a good life for herself and her children, is mostly just exhausted and lacks sleep or time for herself.
Every fancy Instagrammer has a regular, normal life and doesn’t travel all the time and gets stuff for free. And behind a successful Instagramm account is so much hustle and work. If you are one you know what engagement, algorithm, conversation rates, traffic, scammers and fake likes are. So you do your best to have a decent following, entertain people and to provide value – and damn, this takes time.
Behind every fitness guru are YEARS of exercising and dieting, tracking every calorie, starving, no “weekend-beers”, lots of injuries and physical and mental breakdowns. I won’t even start talking about all the hustling to find clients and all the free work they put in.
Behind every famous person there is still a human being, who wants to be seen as such. I strongly believe that fame is one of the hardest lessons one can go through.
There are needs we all have, doesn’t matter is its Beyonce or an african, starving kid: we want to be accepted, seen, heard, understood. We are chasing happiness and happiness comes with inner peace and the acceptance of life as it is. Life is a flow. It flows with us or without. All we can do is finding our little place here and build our happy world around what is given to us.
Most successful people share their failures and talk about their hardships openly. They are vulnerable and genuine. That is why they inspire so much. But we forgot what it means to share with each other. Being close – soul closeness – can make very emotional and can provoke tears. But it also provokes freedom and release.
So who do we want to be?
The perfect human does not exist. But we exist. We do. Unique. With individual thoughts, with beautiful worldview, with love to share, with hugs to share, full of desires and dreams, full of inspiring ideas, full of power to make this world a better place for ourselves and each other.
Why do we want to be different if we all are here to go through our magical, personal, individual, unique human experience ?
I think it’s pretty exciting to see what our own life will bring in the next moment, hour, day, week, month ..
I think it’s pretty exciting to see how much positive impact we can have on someones life.
I think it’s incredibly exciting to fall in love with ourselves and share our unique love with somebody.
Nobody can love like you do.
Nobody can create like you do.
Nobody can be like you already are.
What an honor and excitement it must be to be you … what an honor it is to be me …
