It Doesn't Matter How Much You Know

“It doesn't matter how much you know.

It matters what you're willing to step into.
It matters what you're willing to do.
It matters how much transformation you desire.
It matters what your vision is.
It matters what decisions you make.
It matters what standards you set for your life.
It matters how much you get back up.
It matters how you treat yourself.
It matters how much you put to use.
It matters how you treat other people.
It matters what stories you tell yourself.
It matters what fears you'll step into.
It matters how you show up.”

- Alexandra Covucci 

To "know" is only part of the puzzle. Let's call it the puzzle of living our best life.

Your good intentions are another part of the puzzle.

Each on their own may not take you to that next level, to where you want to go, to  you living your best life .

You may ask what does living your best life mean, what does it look like? It looks like a life on purpose, of  healthy relationships, a healthy body, living your truth and contributing to the space one is in in a positive manner. It is a life of authenticity and willingness, of open mindedness and progress. Yes yes I deliberately left out the material things. I did that because I am convinced that once you are indeed living your best life, all needs are met. 

How many times have we heard "Oh they had such good intentions". Intentions alone won't do the trick.

How many times have you heard someone say "Yes, I know" and yet they continue to make choices and decisions that reflect something competely different. Helloooooo, no, you don't know because if you did you would act differently, you would act like you know.

To know is to demonstrate. 

So, it matters how and what we do with our knowledge and good intentions, talking alone about it hardly brings about the desired results.

It takes courage to live this life, it takes responsibility, discipline and self love
