From Idealism to Realism

From Idealism to Realism

Don’t we all want, happiness, love joy, success, flow, and abundance…? The world of Idealism.

However in some areas of our life we experience realism, we want a better relationship, we want to improve our career, we want to upgrade our house… searching for more idealism. 

When your internal and external worlds are aligned in your life and career, there is no idealism or realism anymore…. When those two merges, there is only ‘’what is’’, ‘’being’’, ‘’the present moment’’, whatever term is given to it….

There is no desire to achieve, there is no gap, there is no frustration, unhappiness, or stress. Your internal self and external self are aligned.

So the key is how do you get there?

Very simple.


Your purpose in life is different than mine, your values are different, your life experiences are different even though they are all the same.

To discover those differences and uniqueness is only discovered through self-awareness.

Understanding who you are. Like Aristotle once said, “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”

My aim with these articles is to provide perspective, to provide awareness. Perspective for the mind to look beyond its thinking. To create new insight, new awareness about you and your journey. To create a space where awareness emerges. This new awareness can then be used to bridge the gap between your internal and external self so that you can find mental, emotional, career, and spiritual balance.

It’s first all about awareness. The goal after self-awareness is to bring that awareness to reality.

So once awareness is created, the question next is, how?

Then coaching, tools, techniques, and strategies come into play to achieve the results you want and bridge the gap.
