If you encountered a challenge or obstacle, what would your highest self do?
Connecting to your highest self is a spiritual quest; it is a way of being that you aspire to become. It is the real you, the voice that expresses itself most clearly when you are in alignment with your vision and purpose in life.
I believe that we all have a version of ourselves that we aspire to become. The journey to get there isn’t easy; it takes courage, determination, and a belief in yourself. Imagine a version of yourself that is void of limiting beliefs, someone with infinite capabilities?
Unfortunately, a lot of people base their lives on their past selves. If you are unable to let go of your old story, you won't be able to move forward and embrace the infinite possibilities that life offers.
In the words of Deepak Chopra, “When you contact the higher self…you tap into a reservoir of infinite power.”

Unfortunately a lot of people base their lives on their past selves. If you are unable to let go of your old story, you won't be able to move forward and embrace life's infinite possibilities. When you encounter challenges in life, how do you respond? Do you use these experiences as motivation to propel you forward, or do you give up?
My past or current self would be terrified of doing things, like filming videos on YouTube, starting a business, or approach a stranger, but my highest self has no fear. When I am in this space, I am powerful and unstoppable. When you tap into your highest self, you perceive and respond to people and the world around you in a different way.
Move through your life and act as if you already embody your highest self. Creating morning rituals allow you to be at your best every day. What could you do today in order to become a better version of yourself? As you develop your higher self and your philosophy towards life, you will become more in alignment with your true self and move towards the path of self-actualization.
Show up every day and take action to achieve your goals, because every next level of your life will demand a different version of you. In the words of Wayne Dyer, “Your highest self is not just an idea that sounds lofty or spiritual. It is a way of being. It is the first principle that you must come to understand and embrace as you move toward attracting to you that which you want and need for this parenthesis in eternity that you know as your life.”
What would your highest self do? Start embodying that person today and watch your life change for the better.
Here's a question I want you to ask yourself every single day. Every time you encounter an obstacle, a challenge, a setback, failure, whatever it might be, it's a question that I use every day as part of my morning ritual and all throughout the day. It's the question of how would my best and highest self respond to this situation? Okay. How would my best and my highest self respond to this situation? What would I do if I was at my absolute best? If I was the person that I dreamed of being. That strong, that powerful, that charismatic, that confident person, what would they do? How would they respond?
You see, I believe that we all have a higher self. We all have the best version of ourselves, if you will. Maybe you've already experienced that. Maybe you've experienced times in your life where you're blown away by yourself, but you felt confident and you felt charismatic and you're the life of the party or you didn't hesitate, you just made the decision, you went for it. Or you just felt really good, really happy about yourself. Often … Maybe that's not the norm every day for you. Maybe it is. I believe that we always have a version of ourselves that we aspire to be. That we're always growing. We're always evolving.
That might be your future you a year from now, five year, ten years, twenty years from now. We're all going to grow and evolve to be a better version of ourselves. That version of ourselves is going to be more conscious. A more conscious human being. A better human being. Hopefully, if you are watching this video and you subscribed to my channel, you're into personal development and life mastery, then that's the goal, right?
As your highest self, you might not be there just yet, but when you ask yourself that question, you're going to get a different answer about how you're going to respond to situations. Let me give you an example. Let's say that you're driving in your car and someone cuts you off. Your current self or maybe your past self, because a lot of people they live their lives based on a past identity that they never really upgrade and never evolve, so they keep responding and reacting to the same situations of life.
Your current or past self might respond to that situation in a negative way. They might get frustrated, they might get angry, they might get upset. There might be some sort of negative emotion around that, whereas, I want you to ask yourself if that happened to you, how would your highest self respond? Your high self, the version of yourself that you view as someone who's happy and powerful and confident, how would they respond? The answer that you might get might be something like, you know, just going to shrug it off. It's not going to affect them.
They might put a big smile on their face and maybe focus on really caring for that person that cut them off and maybe having sympathy, having love for them, maybe wishing them well and not creating a negative meaning or reaction from that. Right? That's how your highest self would respond to that. Let's say that you're in your business and you encounter failure, a setback. Something happens. Something outside of your control. Something with a customer. Something with a platform or a technology or the economy. Whatever that is, your current or your past self might respond to that situation one way.
Maybe a negative response, but how would your highest self respond? How would you at your absolute best or the person that you want to be one day, how would they respond to that situation? Maybe they're going to view it as a blessing, as a gift. Maybe they're going to look for the lessons from that experience and help ensure that that never happens again. Maybe they're going to use that as motivation or drive that can light a fire under their ass and can help you move forward and prosper and not get caught up in it, but take action because massive action is a cure-all.
It's a remedy that solves everything. How would your highest self respond? I want you to ask yourself that question every time there's a negative certain situation or an obstacle or challenge or failure. Anything comes up, ask yourself that question. You'll be surprised about the answers that you get. The truth is all you really got to do is act as if. Act as if that you are that person that you want to be. Step into that. Meet these challenges and these obstacles as your highest self in your life. Show up as that. Because all it really requires is making that decision. Asking yourself, “How would my high self respond?
What would I do if I was at my absolute best? If I was confident, if I was that happy person, how would they respond?” Or how would I respond at that best situation to this circumstance? You'll get the answers, then you step into it. You decide to put that smile on your face. You decide to be confident. You decide to make that decision. There's a lot of things for myself that my past self or my current self would be terrified of doing. I'd be terrified, you know, my past self of public speaking or putting myself in front of a video or making that investment decision or starting the business or approaching that stranger.
I'm not living for my past though. I ask myself, my highest self, what would I do? My highest self doesn't have any fear. It would decide to make that business happen. It would decide to enter into that relationship, to make that move or that decision that could allow me to grow or get in front of an audience or hit record and put myself out there. That's what my highest self does. We all have that within ourselves. The more that you can access that and associate to your highest self and make decisions and live your life from that and step into that, then you're going to become it. You're going to become the person that you want to be.
