Be Excellent

Be Excellent

Be excellent. Not just good. Or good enough. Go for big. Bright. Holy, off the charts, over moon, absolutely totally amazing. Commit to greatness. Your greatness. Commit to mastery. To being better than you could ever even imagine possible. Be you in full.

The level of magic on the table here, requires a sincere dedication to the craft of your life. A willingness to learn. The ability to wait until you can fulfill the promises that your heart is yearning for. You must be the student. Open the book. Do your homework.

If you are lucky you will get to wade through the mess. Dive into the deep. Get tangled with seaweed and meet the mermaids that live in the depths of your mind. Love the dragons. Have tea with the demons. Shatter notions of good with a mallet that beats in tune with your heart.

The desert will loom. You may want to run, back into the safety of the shade. But here, in the blaze of your soul, you will hone your craft over and over until your sharpness reminds you that you can fly. Then you can take off, knowing the power you hold. Take off and rock the whole wild world. Push the limits beyond. Dare. Risk. Fail. Get up again. Ask for help. Loudly. Without shame. Dust yourself with glitter. Stretch your wings and do it again.

The winds call for you to serve in incompressible ways. Knowing that service feels like a gift only you can receive. Share who you are with all the gusto in the world.

Have your say. Fine tune your words. Sing sonnets to yourself until you can hear the music in your sleep. Love yourself up like no one before you has. Open your heart. Bravely. Courageously. Without a care, other than how amazing it is to be you so magnificently in this very moment in time. Know that you are a blessing, here to live every moment with the divine spark that could only come through you. Choose to nurture that flame, so that it erupts into volcanos of love and creativity.

Be fucking great at what you do. And let us all know. Please. We need it. The world can hold open the space if you are willing to fill it. Stand up. Get going.
