How To Be Brilliant

There are many ways to appear brilliant.


Stand in front of the sun.


Declare a six figure income, say you figured out how to achieve it in 12 months, and sell your secrets to others.


Collect wise quotes, place them on top of a photo, and spread them like wildfire through Facebook.


Wear a florescent green shirt.


Word timeless wisdom in a unique way and put it in a post or a book with captivating fonts and BOLD TYPE IN ALL CAPS.


But why try to be brilliant?

You already are.


Find silence, listen to your truth, and just let it radiate. 

Stop trying.  Start shining.
