All of you who read my blog posts and who signed up on my website to eliminate a limiting belief are “weird,” according to best-selling author and popular blogger Seth Godin.
Why would he apply that term to you?
Seth uses the term “weird” to describe anyone who is not “normal,” in other words, people who express their uniqueness and who don’t try to fit in with what “most people” are doing.
What makes YOU weird?
Most “normal” people are not interested in personal growth. You—who are on my mailing list and reading this blog post—are a distinct minority. Because you want more out of life … because you are willing to spend your time, energy, and money to create a better life for yourself.
Most “normal” people do not have this awareness and commitment.
Interestingly enough, many of the people who come to us to help them eliminate beliefs are normal.
Thousands of clients who come to us to get rid of their fear of public speaking only want to get rid of that specific practical problem.
Most of them deny they have any problems at all in their lives other than their public speaking fear. They have no interest in personal growth. They are normal.
Seth’s newest book, We Are All Weird, makes the point that there are getting to be fewer and fewer “normal” people in the world, in other words, people who aspire to be just like everyone else.
More and more people are beginning to express their unique selves, which are weird to the normal people.
We want to hang out in “tribes”
And as people get interested in being their authentic selves, they also want to hang out with others who are weird in the same way they are weird, in “tribes” as Seth puts it.
So if you are weird because you are interested in living the best life you can possible live, because you are willing to put in the effort to overcome the barriers to having a life that truly works, and because you are unwilling to put up with merely getting by—then, first, I want to acknowledge you for that weirdness.
You are part of a relatively small group of people on this planet.
And, second, I would like to support you.
I have created a page on Facebook that over 1,400 of you weirdoes who are devoted to personal transformation already have joined.
I put a link there to my blog posts each week as well as other information that I think would be valuable.
I intend to make even more useful material available in the future.
You can post comments and questions there and have other members of your tribe respond.
In addition, I have offered to answer any question posted on that site pertaining to personal growth.
If you would like to converse with people who have a similar commitment to personal growth, be given information that will contribute to that growth, and have a chance to get your questions answered, please join your fellow tribe members at http://facebook.com/recreateyourlife.
As one of the weirdoes who has committed his life to helping others get rid of the barriers in their lives that keep them from the lives they want to live, I look forward to interacting with you there.
Please leave your comments and questions about how I can support your personal journey to a life free from unnecessary limitations.
