Action Step:

If we look with a re-focused REAL lens, we can flow with our flaws.

  1. Grab your journal & jot down 3 traits you would label as ‘flaws,’ as tendencies you have that often threaten to limit your progress and create negative energy.
  2. Pause. Breathe deeply. Be still. Clear your mind and resolved to review the list with a new lens. Prepare to pour these habits through a REAL filter.
  3. Return to your list and reflect on at least one positive use for each of the qualities or patterns you listed. How could you reshape or redirect each so that it transforms from a detriment into a source of inspiration and flow?
  4. Use this exercise as often as needed & practice this affirmation to keep your REAL lens clean and clear: I recognize my power to flow with my flaws & to use all parts of me to create real inspiration.
