How to reach your innate potential and believe in yourself? By Jazmin Medrano
It is a good day today, Unicorns! And we are here to give you some treat or better yet, another blog post! This time a special, inspirational message to us all from Jazmin Medrano.
Jazmin is a transformational coach, TEDx speaker, trainer, and artist. She is passionate about [self] expression, transformation, human dynamics, and healing power. Her lively, wise, inviting & entrepreneurial spirit supports individuals and companies to become aware of their limitations, unleash their truth and innate potential, and be in alignment with their purpose. She firmly believes that everyone has a unique power within them that is meant to be discovered, expressed, and shown for the world to experience. As a performance artist, she works and evolves in the realm of inviting and giving space for people to come more into contact with themselves, by way of channeling these energies and expressing them upon a blank canvas using charcoal and body (in kinetic form).
” Through many years of diving into my core and supporting others in their own transformational journey, I found that the content of this blog post was needed in order to promote a taste of freedom, expansion, and power. I’ve experienced that the majority of mankind strongly resonates to a collective conditioning that exudes fear, blame, lack of self-responsibility, suppression of one’s individuality, and more. My intrinsic motivation to write this came from my intention to spread awareness of what I perceive supports others in not conforming to mediocrity or a fear-based and reactionary way of life; but rather to live a love-based, freeing and creational way of life.”

” My message to you, me, and the world…
Discover who you truly are. Ask yourself the question that you don’t want to ask yourself. Explore undiscovered parts of yourself to better understand yourself, how you interact with yourself and the rest of the world. Unlearn and let go of anything within and without that doesn’t serve you in becoming the best version of yourself. Figure out what it is that you truly want in life. Give yourself the space to JUST BE. Don’t get caught up in having to DO so much. Life is about being, not doing… we are human BEINGS after all and not human DOINGS.
“Ask yourself the question that you don’t want to ask yourself.”
Find that spark within you, that spark in your heart that just wants to be seen. Whatever is in your heart, let that lead the way. And use your mind to support you in leading the path that your heart craves to walk. When an opportunity you like arises yet you think to yourself “I can’t do that”, “I’m not qualified to do that”, or thoughts alike, do me a favor and tell those thoughts to stop and go take a long ass sabbatical because you ARE going to take that opportunity.
Remember this, if an opportunity comes your way, it’s because you CAN do it. Don’t let anyone (including yourself) tell you that you can’t do something. Don’t follow the herd out of reaction. Whether you follow or lead, make sure it’s the path that you chose to take. Trust yourself, believe in yourself. You have a unique gift, yes, YOU. Everyone has a unique gift to show and express to the world. Don’t be afraid to show what that is. You weren’t given life to be anyone else other than you. STOP trying to be someone else… you are YOU. You don’t see an apple trying to be a kale. You don’t see Bill Gates trying to be Kanye West. Accept yourself. Love yourself. Love yourself as much as you wish others to love you.
Don’t be afraid of change. Don’t be afraid of the unknown. And even if you are afraid, don’t let that stop you from moving forward with how your heart wants to live.
If there’s anyone in your life you want to change, DON’T do it. The only person you can change is yourself and no one else. When you focus on your own journey and on becoming the best version of you, you will notice a change in your surroundings. Why? Because you have an impact in the world; whether you see it or not. Become aware of what that impact is. If you’re not aware, ask. If it’s not true to the essence of who you are, reflect and take a dive deep within yourself to see what needs to be aligned and transformed. Don’t be afraid of change. Don’t be afraid of the unknown. And even if you are afraid, don’t let that stop you from moving forward with how your heart wants to live.
Know your boundaries. Learn how to say NO when it’s not true for you. You may lose people around you the more true you become. Be ok with that. What is the point of having people around you that don’t want what is best for you? Only you know what’s best for you and no one else.
Take responsibility for your life. It’s not your partners, friends, family, boss, or colleagues responsibility to take care of you. If you want something, ASK for it. If there’s a situation you want changed, do something about it. Don’t refrain yourself because you think it’s not appropriate. Notice what happens when you stand up for your truth and what you believe in. Don’t underestimate yourself. Learn what unconsious limiting beliefs are ruling your life and transform those little f***ers with love so you can be free to consciously create your life.
Focus on creating instead of consuming and binging on social media, alcohol, work, drugs, TV, books, etc. You’re an innate creative being who needs to consume the essential things to get by, and not the other way around. Discover what your creative essence is, everyone has it. And move towards that great potential and vision that you have. Breathe your potential.
Allow yourself to be. Stand your ground and stand tall for who you are. Be you, be free, be love, and live the life you want… free of inhibitions.”
