If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Have you ever asked yourself probing questions that get to the root of your inner self? Have you done the inner questioning to help you uncover your purpose—what your life is calling you to do? We must ask ourselves powerful questions to get to the core of our being.
To get you started, ask yourself, “If time and money were not an issue, what would I be doing?” I like this question because it is as if we won the lottery. If you won a million bucks, what would you do? A question like this can begin to unveil some of your interests. You may discover you like to travel, remodel homes, or you are fond of antique cars. You may discover the talent that can turn into a skill you can share with others and be paid to do it!
So, ask yourself that question and maybe some of these:
- Am I honoring myself and the gifts, talents and skills I am blessed to have?
- If I had a choice of what would bring me substantial income, what would that be?
- Does my choice reflect your highest values and beliefs?
- Am I living a life of balance between work, play, family, recreation and spiritual commitments?
If one of these is off kilter, then most likely your life is unbalanced.
Isn’t it time to discover what you love so that you can do what you love? Have you heard the saying, “Do what you love and love what you do?”
Start searching for meaningful work that you enjoy and will truly fulfill you and feed your spirit. Find a career where you will not rely on an alarm clock because you are so excited to get up each morning and get started. I am not saying to quit your job tomorrow. You have to be smart when making significant life changes.
Determine how much money and time you have to invest in yourself at this present time. If you have a house and no money in savings, I recommend keeping your job and do three action steps a day to get you one step closer to your dreams. Eventually, over time, you will get to where you were meant to be all along.
It is never too late to change. Today is the day to no longer tolerate the ball and chains that have held you down for so many years. Today is the day to explore who you really are and unveil what you truly enjoy.
Do you have limited beliefs about your ability to change? Of course. But, that is the purpose behind this message. Imagine yourself in the place you want to be. Close your eyes and imagine. Start believing in yourself that you can live the life you desire and that you were meant to. You were meant to live a life of peace, abundance, satisfaction and fulfillment.
Every time a negative thought or limited belief enters your mind, whenever a response begins with a “Yeah, but” or “I wish I could, but can’t”, say to yourself, “STOP IT.” Just STOP IT and close your eyes and imagine yourself in the life you desire.
And ask yourself these questions:
- When the time of my death comes, how will I want people to remember me?
- What is the inspirational, moral, and wise legacy I want to pass on to coming generations?
- What ways can I use my talents to serve humanity?
- What is the work I feel I am meant to do?
- What three tasks will I do to get me one step closer to my dreams?
Answer these and you will be well on your way to finding your calling.
