J.P Sears: Admit it… You’re Full of Shit

“Need a new mantra for your morning meditation? Try this one from JP Sears: ‘I’m full of shit and it’s ok.’ If you are striving to make an impact in this world, taking yourself too seriously can not only be a complete waste of energy but it can also prevent your life and connections from truly flowing. Be open to laughing at yourself and acknowledge that while your product/service/mission is noble and great, it’s probably not above some criticism. Accept that and see what it helps you discover about yourself. As JP said, ‘Being less serious doesn’t mean things aren’t important to us. It doesn’t mean we are not focused as f-k a lot of times. In fact… seriousness is a fear-based mindset that actually reduces our focus.’ With that in mind, say your new mantra three times and approach life with a little less seriousness, a little more playfulness, and a lot more flow.'”
