Enrolling Yourself and Others

This week I have been observing how when we get excited and passionate about something, a project, a task, a relationship, or a person we tend to enroll others around us.  I have also been a recipient of someone else’s excitement and passion which enrolled me into their ideas.  There is a transference of energy, excitement, vision, and connection that happens which becomes enrolling.  Many times when I talk about enrollment, it reminds people of selling a product.  That is not what I am talking about.  We are in the processing of enrollment all day with people around us.

Let’s define what enrollment is? The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as “to enroll oneself or cause oneself to be enrolled“.  I define enrollment as – The ability to share your ideas, thoughts, and vision in a way that another person gets it, understands it and becomes inspired by it.   Being enrolled is to the curiosity and the allowance to receive ideas and experiences that come to us and allow inspiration and joy of the gift of novelty and expansion. Observe yourself and answer the following questions:


Are you able to enroll others in your ideas, beliefs, or vision? 

Are you able to enroll your spouse in some of the ideas that you have?

How about your children, can you enroll them to follow your directions or guidance?

If you are the head of your company, how good are you in enrolling your staff in new ideas?

If you work in a company, how do you enroll the executive management to a new idea?

In the current divided political arena, how good are you in enrolling your friends and family in your perspective?

What are some of the belief systems that you keep re-enrolling yourself on inside your own head?

Every moment we are either getting enrolled by someone or enrolling them into our ideas or being.  If we are not allowing our self to be enrolled, then we are resisting novelty and change for the fear of the unknown.


My experience is that when someone truly believes in an idea, believes that their idea works, it is to the benefit of others, creates energy and vitality, and living those ideas puts them in the zone, it becomes contagious.  When you watch someone be elated by what they believe in, it elates you.  The emotional state transfers to people around.  Interestingly enough, a person might not fully agree with the idea, however, they get enrolled in the state of enthusiasm, passion, wholeness, and elation.  At times I have experienced getting enrolled in who the person is versus their ideas, for example, the way they carry themselves with confidence, or how love and peace radiate from them, or that their wholeness becomes inspiring. 

One of the factors of feeling alive, elated, inspired, and fulfilled is to be engaged with life.  Being engaged in life is to be enrolled in new ideas and allowing yourself to expand who you are to all the possibilities that are awaiting you.  Allowing yourself toward an expansion of ideas, perspectives, and experiences creates fulfillment. 

To observe which belief systems you keep re-enrolling yourself in from the past and see if they are still working for you, to see if you are open or closed to being enrolled in other ideas as they show up in your life, go to my book – “Life Reset – The Awareness Integration Path to creating a Life you Want”. 

Be enrolling of yourself & allow yourself to be enrolled toward greatness
