The Power of Going Big, Bold, and Beautiful: Transforming The World Through Your Heart-Centred Work
Do you look out at the world through the lens of social media these days, and things just feel a bit ... samey? Like the same kind of content and thoughts just getting churned around the internet and spewed out. The same kind of feeds, the same kinds of music, the same kinds of aesthetic.
There's even a "beige" and "vanilla" trend across socials.
As someone whos always gone for a more is more aesthetic online (disco balls for days, anyone), I'm a magpie for anything that is bright and shiny.
BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL, some might say (there's a clue in the title of my work!)
"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
That doesn't mean that I feel the need to be dancing on every reel, or shouting from the rooftops. I can be as quiet as the next person, and in fact, am quite the introvert, but that doesn't mean that my purpose isn't BIG, and that what I have to say isn't BOLD or the change I wish for the world isn't BEAUTIFUL.
It's that mission and impact that make the work and the brand stand out.
In a world of never-ending scrolling it has to so that the beige doesn't swallow it up.
That mission gets to be heard.
In a world where mediocrity often reigns, those who dare to go BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL with their heart-centred work have the power to make a profound impact. Whether you're an artist, entrepreneur, or social change advocate, embracing these qualities can transform your work from ordinary to extraordinary.
Let's explore the significance of going BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL in your heart-centred work and how it can unlock the true potential of what you are here to light up with it.
Embracing the Power of Going BIG:
When you choose to go BIG with your heart-centred work, you defy limitations and expand your horizons. Going big means dreaming wildly and setting ambitious goals that push you beyond your comfort zone. By challenging yourself to think bigger, you tap into your hidden potential and discover what you're truly capable of achieving. Going big also inspires others and attracts collaborators who share your vision, amplifying the impact of your work. It is seen and felt, and is doing its work by simply being out there.
And when you allow yourself the space to dream those BIG ambitions into being the timelines for them to happen don't become so pressing. I have clients with global missions for incredibly impactful work who allow the dream to be born and the seeds to be planted, and then they take action. That action - no matter how small - is working towards making that vision a reality.
Do they waste their time and energy questioning how quickly it's going to take? No, because that's a waste of resources when they can be making it actually happen.
Harnessing the Power of BOLDness:
Being BOLD in your pursuit of purpose is the fuel that propels heart-centred work to new heights. Being bold is the courage to take risks, challenge the status quo, and embrace innovation. It's about speaking up and out for the things you believe in - especially when you can see such inequality in the world.
Being bold enables you to break free from the ordinary and make a memorable mark in your field. People feel it. When you approach your mission with boldness, you show the world that you take a stand for the change you are part of, that you get to be different, and you make a statement - however loud our quietly you make that statement.
Standing in your truth is the boldest thing you can do.
"True power comes from standing in your own truth and walking your own path."
Unleashing the Power of BEAUTIFUL:
The BEAUTIFUL of your heart-centred work has a transformative quality that touches the heart and soul. When you infuse your heart-centred work with beauty, you create a powerful emotional connection with your audience. Beauty can take many forms, whether it's through visually stunning designs, captivating storytelling, or heartfelt expressions of vulnerability and authenticity. By connecting to the essence of the positive impact and contribution you're here to make, you engage people on a deeper level, leaving a lasting impression and inspiring them to take action.
Overcoming the Challenges and Fears That Come with a BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL Mission:
Of course going BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL with your heart-centred work is not without its challenges. It requires resilience, perseverance, and a willingness to embrace failure as a stepping stone to success, which can be one of the biggest roadblocks.
Believe me, understanding and having awareness that fear of failure is coming along for the party saves my clients a lot of time and energy when we get down to the fact that it's there for the ride!
Fear may also creep in, tempting you to play it safe and stay within your comfort zone. However, by acknowledging and confronting these challenges, you can push through them and emerge stronger. The most significant growth often happens when you step outside your comfort zone into the stretch zone.
Get Inspired by Others Who Take the BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL Path
It can feel daunting to step into the BIGGEST, BOLDEST and most BEAUTIFUL version of what you are putting out there to the world, and that's why it's so important to get support and accountability as you take those strides. Self judgement and the imposter are going to be with you, so you might as well face into the storm, rather than trying to hide from it!
I find that looking towards those who've taking the BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL journey helps to inspire and motivate me. I always get my clients to check into the energy of who inspires them so they can see the power of potentiality when you you do lean into what's possible.
For me this is visionary artists, such as Ai Weiwei, a Chinese contemporary artist and activist who uses his art to challenge authority, advocate for human rights, and shine a light on social injustices. It's also entrepreneurs such as Yvon Chouinard who founded Patagonia, an outdoor clothing and gear company. The company actively works towards reducing its ecological footprint, supports grassroots environmental initiatives, and donates a portion of its sales to environmental causes. Chouinard's approach to business combines profitability with a deep concern for the planet, setting an example of how a company can prioritize sustainability and make a positive impact.
Those who challenge societal norms and disrupt industries with innovative solutions, transform thinking and the way we treat the world, and each other. Their stories serve as inspiration and motivation to make a meaningful impact in my own heart-centred pursuits.
This is everything that being BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL in your heart-centred work gets to be, as a disruptor, a change-maker and a love activist, and it starts with that vision, that mission and the purpose-driven impact you're here to make in the world.
