Conformity
is for the average.

The ordinary.

And you are neither.

You made it!

I'm super excited you're here.

Whether anyone else knows this about you or not, you know who you are:

an artist
a creative
a rebel
a leader

who's ready to change the world.

When you're happiest, most passionate, most excited about life, you're not just following the crowd, doing "what we've always done." 

You're doing your own thing. The stuff that makes you light up inside. And like-minded people are drawn to you when you're in that space.

When you decide to paddle upstream—against your own inner current of passion and vitality, just wanting to blend in, fit in, get some easy acceptance from others—it can end up being more tiring than you anticipated, especially over long periods of time.

It can be downright exhausting.

And so—you're done.

You're tired of the status quo, of conforming to other people's ideas of who and what you should be and how you should live your life. 

You're ready to step into the current of your own life and flow with the Source within you.

This isn't always easy, especially when you're surrounded by people who just don't get it.

But you know, deep down, that it's always more rewarding in the end...

...because it's who you were born to Be,
and what you were born to do.

You were not born to conform.

You were born to transform:

Your own life, from the inside out.

And then marvel at how your brilliant, unique, playful, passionate life then affects and transforms the world around you.

Only you can do that.

So, welcome. This is another step in your journey,
and I'm thrilled you made it here.

Sending you love, light,
and inspired belief in who You Are.
—Stan
