It’s not a frequently used term but it means to Be all in!
If it’s truly important, if you really want specific results – Why hold back?
The term originated with the knights of Medieval Europe.
Their lances were generally about ten feet long, made of wood and had a metal tip. If you or I pick up a ten-foot stick by one end and hold it outward, naturally the other end will be tilting downward. Gravity.
For the knight, that meant when they struck their adversary, part of their striking force was lost. Somehow a knight discovered that by doing something different, they could strike their opponent with full impact by holding their lance straight.
Like competitors do, when opponents notice their challengers scoring better, they make it a point to quickly learn how themselves. Employing the trick became known as ‘full tilt.’
The significance is, as far as we know, we’re only here once. If we’re not making the best of it – Now – what are we waiting for?
I was waiting for an insight. Inspiration, encouragement, and a breakthrough model to copy – like Full Tilt! You see – I used to think I didn’t fit. I wasn’t good enough.
I’m grateful I learned better. Now I champion and advocate valuing myself – ourselves.
God, or whatever name you or I use: Source Presence, The Creator, the I Am That I Am, God doesn’t care what name we use.
God cares that I Love! That I’m open and receptive to receiving His Love for me. That I share it. Free it to flow. Radiate outward like ripples on a lake – touching all! The more – I love – the better! The more I love, the stronger His flow through me!
Valuing myself empowers me to love as I explained here.
Accepting – Forgiving – Loving myself facilitates valuing myself – and an ever-increasing spiral of valuing others.
I start with myself. First, just a spark. A tiny seed of love light. With gratitude for that and asking to share – it grows until I’m radiating outward like a ripple on a lake. Like sunlight in the Universe.
As I practice, I grow stronger.
I liken it to the “Hokey Pokey” that I learned as a child. I have fun putting my whole self into it! In the process, others want in on the fun – the joy – join in creating a stronger love flow into and through me, radiating outward to encompass more and more.
And it starts with learning to value myself.
Then – sharing it! That’s what Living Full Tilt is all about! I invite you to check this out. Engage with it. Put your whole self into it, like the “Hokey Pokey.” If you have any questions, click here.
