It’s time to stop and just celebrate. Celebrate who you are on this amazing day, this day of openness and power. Celebrate everything that has brought you here and everything that has made you. How often do men restrain themselves from going all out and just being, loudly, outrageously and sincerely? How often do you see men just dancing for joy, full of energy and excitement? Not often enough!
Life is to be taken seriously so that people will take you seriously. Yes life is to be taken seriously, but not at the expense of letting things go and being outrageous. Go outside and sing at the top of your voice. Hug people and show them how great life is for you. Go a whole day without criticism or judgement and celebrate it before you go to bed. Kiss your loved one when she doesn’t expect it, surprise her.
Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself, “Here is an opportunity for me to celebrate like never before, my own power, my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary.Anthony Robbins
It was at seminars by Tony Robbins that I learned to dance with joy at what my life was.
I started hesitantly, conscious of what I looked like and how I appeared. Once I realised that if I closed my eyes no-one could see me, all my inhibitions left me…
The power and joy I feel when I celebrate is like nothing I have ever felt before, it is addictive.
You may think that to see an overweight man in his 60’s dancing on stage in front of thousands of people would be faintly ridiculous. Yes it would be if he was trying to show what a great dancer he was. But when you realise that he couldn’t care what he looked like or what you thought of him then you might see a different side. You might see that he was just celebrating his amazing life, that he was full of energy, joy and love.
That is me up there and I love it.
- Today you just need to take some time out and celebrate. Write down some things that would really do it for you.
- Find a spot where you can’t be seen or heard (unless your inhibitions have gone already…) and dance and sing with joy.
- Look at how you feel. Do you feel exhilarated or embarrassed?
- Do it again and this time feel exhilarated. Have some fun.
