Can you develop New Strong street smarts? Sure you can. If you seek success and personal growth, you’d better.
Granted, your version of those street smarts may look different from mine. Or LEO’s. Whichever version you develop, once you see the need you’ll be on your way.
As the saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Truth is, New Strong street smarts are essential for personal growth in The Age of Awakening!
What Are New Strong Street Smarts, Anyway?
On December 21, 2012, Planet Earth changed. Subtly. Vibrationally.
And, know it or not, humanity moved into The Age of Awakening.
Many of the problems you see all around you could be considered “Adjustment problems. Difficulty with adjusting to our new vibrational freedom.”
You may know, I’ve written a book with a Program for Easy Vibrational Balance. Besides the paperback, “The New Strong,” what else? I’ve developed a workshop. Blog-Buddy LEO attended the annual New Strong Workshop first time out. Now he’s finding his own way to live The New Strong.
I love the passion and personal clarity in LEO’s guest post for today. When reading, remember: You can find your own way to develop New Strong Street Smarts. You don’t have to be a Millennial like LEO. Nor is it necessary to live in Texas. Whoever you are, wherever you live, find your way and go!
Thanks so much, LEO, for describing your own way of living The New Strong.
Why Has LEO Needed New Strong Street Smarts?
Personally I’ve been finding myself less able to deal with others’ BS. By which I mean, a lot of dysfunction going on:
- Excuse making
- Lack of taking responsibility.
Where do I see this? Both in my professional life and in other arenas, as well.
Have You, Too, Felt the Need for New Strong Street Smarts?
Seems like, people are less and less able to actually function as normal humans.
Exasperating! I mean doing simple, normal things adults ought to be able to manage. Such as showing up on time. Doing regular human things, like holding a job or completing a task.
But what does it take to get things done, simple things like this? Living in objective reality. Apparently, this isn’t happening as much as you or I would expect.
Enter a Technical Clarification from Rose
Blog-Buddies, I think LEO’s observations are right on the money. Why has “living in objective reality” increasingly become so hard for people? Whether living “post-truth” or substituting energy talk for regular, human conversation! Or the latest shocking statistics about alcoholism for American women! (Have you heard yet of “Drinkorexia“?)
With today’s new vibrational freedom, people appear to live in objective reality. Obviously, to some degree, they manage to get by okay.
However, millions of people are finding it hard to handle their new vibrational freedom. In their auras this shows. In their behavior as well.
I’d say, the root cause is not positioning consciousness appropriately. Sadly, otherwise responsible folks are breaking the Old Rules for living well. (Rules we were all raised to follow because we grew up in the past Age of Faith.)
While these good people aren’t yet following the New Rules for living well, as described in this book review for “The New Strong.”
Consequently, as LEO has noted, people are having difficulty with managing everyday competence at life. Okay, back to LEO’s guest post.
Instead of New Strong Street Smarts, Vibeeenesss Talk
Spiritual addiction is on the rise. Lately I’ve noticed a huge uptick in feeeelinggssss and vibeeenessss talk, as described in “The New Strong.”
Much more so than even three months ago, I’m observing an increase in all that energy talk.
Plus, sometimes, I’ll use some of my daily “Technique Time” for aura reading. Why use my energetic literacy skills? In order to figure out why did this person, whom I used to respect, start acting like such a dumb arse?
Seems to me, the slipping into dysfunction seems to be just as prevalent in liberals as in conservatives. Although it manifests in different ways.
So I’ve Been Developing New Strong Street Smarts
In response, mostly without trying (I think), how have I changed?
I’ve doubled down on my commitment to proactively engage in my human life ethically, eagerly, and earnestly.
Gone is my tolerance for childish behavior.
What about patience for behavior that is downright delusional, out of touch with reality? Withered.
Most striking, I’ve developed a never-before-seen forcefulness around speaking my truth.
If Only I Got to Speak Truth to Power.
Instead I Have Begun to Speak Truth to Laziness and Self-Absorption.
Not to achieve selfish ends, but to inject much-needed sanity. Responding to strange situations I’ve found myself in. Clearly, I haven’t set out purposely to call people on their spaced-out behavior. But under the circumstances…
I’m finding myself less and less able to “go with the flow.”
Refusing to hold back, I no longer care so much if I hurt someone’s feelings. With employees or friends, I will speak up. I will dare to rock the boat.
More than Anything Else, How I Live with New Strong Street Smarts
More than ever before, I’ll SHOW UP. In the spontaneous positioning of my consciousness and also my behavior.
To me, showing up seems more vital than ever before.
Sometimes I’ll show up apologetically, other times not apologetically at all.
Most of all, I’ll show up honestly. Because I’m determined to live and speak in a way that doesn’t stoop to the lowest common denominator. Have you noticed? That’s more and more en vogue.
Engaging in life with New Strong Street Smarts — that sure beats the alternative. Actually it feels pretty damn good.
And I’m amazed at the way the Universe repays my enthusiasm with more blessings and beauty.
