Being a Professional “You” Rather Than a Dilettante

Being a Professional “You” Rather Than a Dilettante

skyandwater2Most of the folks who attend our self-discovery immersion courses develop a commitment to excellence and the knack of being present as they participate in their lives. Many people, however, participate in their lives as though they are dilettantes.

The definition of dilettante is: A person who is or seems to be interested in a subject, but who is not involved with it in a serious and determined way; a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge; a dabbler, amateur, nonprofessional.

If you are going to embark on the path to enlightenment, we suggest you either do it wholeheartedly or don’t do it at all. The problem with a halfhearted attempt is that you will disappoint yourself and this will be more proof of your inadequacies, your shortcomings and that you are a victim of your own life and life circumstances. If you do it in a serious and determined way, you will discover a reality that is indescribable in the profound rewards that life bestows – although serious is not quite the right word because it really is OK to have fun whilst doing this: participating in your own self-discovery adventure and discovering what it is to be a professional “you” no matter what you are doing in any given moment.

Most of us hold back because we think we are going to find something that is bad or seriously wrong with us. Nothing is further from the truth. The only thing to confront is your own greatness. Are you up for it? Are you willing to admit to who you are REALLY? Then don’t dabble, jump into to your life – the water is fine!
