If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
You were put on this earth to experience an extraordinary life: a life of joy, purpose and abundance. It is your birthright. The fact that so few do disturbs me greatly. As Henry David Thoreau so aptly said, “Most people lead lives of quiet desperation and go to their graves with their music still in them.” I don’t want this to be you!
Even if you do not believe this is possible for you at this moment, I don’t ever want you to stop searching for answers. Constantly ask yourself, “How can I live an extraordinary life? What do I have to understand to make this happen? How do I express more of my ‘Higher Self’ every day?”
If you do nothing more than ask these questions every day, eventually the answers will come. You will be led to books, teachers, seminars, and mentors, all with pieces to the puzzle for you. Your intuition will then help you put those pieces together through ideas, feelings and hunches.
You will find that the answers will come easier if you learn to identify and follow your passion. Figure out what makes you come alive; what makes your heart sing; what kind of difference you want to make in this world. In essence, discover which way your heart draws you and choose that way with all your strength. You will find that will help keep you on the right path. Use your passion as your compass.
Even after they have found their passion, most people don’t follow their hearts because they lack the belief that they can accomplish great things. Their logical minds can’t see a solution, a way to get where they want to go. As a result they give up way too soon.
I want you to remember this: Just because you can’t see a way to accomplish your goal, doesn’t mean a way doesn’t exist.
It just means you can’t see it yet. All you have to do is figure out what small step you can take today that is aligned with your passion. And then take that step. After you take that step you will then be able to ‘see’ a little farther. Then take your next step… and then your next.
As long as you are using your passion as your compass, you can only fail if you give up. Yes, there will be fears, doubts and obstacles, which is why so few people ever get there. I don’t want this to happen to you.
Any time you feel stuck, just keep asking those questions: “How can I live an extraordinary life? What do I have to understand to make this happen? How do I express more of my ‘Higher Self’ every day?”
The answers will come, I promise. Keep taking those smalls steps in the direction of your dreams. And one day, you will find that you are living an extraordinary life. The life you were meant to live.
