What are you doing when no one is looking
What are you doing when no one is looking?
It is great to live our accomplishments through social media via selfies or self videos or if someone is watching what we are doing. We wait for the praise and the likes or the comments or the hearts that flow letting us know with the digital pat on the back that we did ” a good job”.
But what do you do in the quiet room when no one is looking. Whether you are at the gym struggling away at your workout and pushing yourself. Whether you are home alone and said you wont eat junk food on social media, do you sneakily satisfy those cravings with a piece of sweet or do you stay stead fast in your ideals? Do you create a master piece of art or writing or music? Do you learn something new? DO you push yourself to new frontiers of understanding and self growth? Do you create a plan to help transform the world with a new idea? Do you do quiet deeds of charity?
It is not what we do when everyone is looking that counts. That helps our ego. It is what we are doing when no one is looking that makes the difference between a social media champion versus a champion of the heart.
I own that I have done both sides of this question. I have done tremendous deeds in front of others and for others to see, and in so doing got the pat of praise to my ego. Yet I also do a lot more when no one is looking and that is where I have discovered my true strength.
So why share this with you now? Because technically speaking I am telling you about what I do not tell anyone but now you know !! The reason is simple. Authenticity. The true magic of the soul. It comes from working in silence and not with a loudspeaker. The silence of the soul is quiet as it tirelessly does what it is chosen to do. It does not have a way to take a selfie. That is the mind’s prerogative not the choice of the heart or soul.
I found that I do more when no is looking rather than when someone is. That is authenticity.
I love you
