A rebel is someone who does not like to conform and is openly anti-authority or being told what to do.
A hidden rebel is also very independent-minded but usually dislikes conflict, likes to be liked and so appears to conform on the outside. It's easier.
Do you recognise this in yourself?
I'd like to say it's more common among women I meet, but recently I've been meeting men who feel this description fits them very well too.
We've historically been encouraged to follow convention, to fit in to our family, society, culture, to do things the way it is or has always been done. Women are particularly vulnerable to not wanting to be ostracised from the fold, to wanting to please our loved ones and those around us, so it's no wonder we suppress our desire to kick against the norm, to find our own path, to beat our own drum.
And if you're a person who works for someone else, your concern about keeping your job and getting along with your colleagues, may make you more likely to hide your desire to do things differently, to push against what's the norm.
Even the marketing and advertisements we see regularly suggests that we need to follow a specific way, usually someone else's way, to achieve success in our businesses and our relationships - even with our health!
Your inner rebel is saying one thing and the rest of the world is saying something else. No wonder self-doubt is such a common thing.
Please do share with me in the comments your experiences with this. I'd love to know.
The trouble is...
If you suppress your rebel consistently over long periods you may find yourself self-sabotaging you own efforts instead, and the more you suppress your rebel, the more you lose control of it and find yourself rebelling against yourself or rebelling in circumstances that are really not that important.
The thing is there is so much power in your hidden rebel and I'd like you to consider how you can work with that side of yourself versus against it.
Look out for next week's post where I'll go into this in more detail.

I have been running my own businesses from a home office since 1996 and am convinced that business is the vehicle for not only our freedom, but for the expression of our life purpose as well.
I work with conscious business owners, hidden rebels and difference makers that are leaders in the making, and who want a thriving business doing things their own unique way.
I help them get a deeper clarity about what the right direction is for them, how to position the value of their unique brilliance and standout from the crowd, comfortably.
I am also deeply passionate about us each having a purpose on this planet and it's my job to help you find and live yours.

I help them discover who they really are, find their true purpose, give them a spiritual blueprint for their life expression and help them create a business that is based on their life purpose, so that they can live happy, fulfilled lives without feeling like its all a struggle or just hum drum.
