If there is something that you are doing that does not excite or fulfill you, why are you doing it? Many of us work so we can afford to do what we’re passionate about. Others have figured out how to get paid for doing what they love. This is an important skill to cultivate. Either way, the secret to living a joyful, fulfilling life is to do more of what you love every day.
Although some things make us feel better, ultimately the critical work for us to do is on ourselves. What does it take for you to be happy? When is enough, enough? How do you count your blessings? How big does something special have to be before you declare it a miracle?
One way to love what you are doing, where you are, and even who you are, begins with acceptance. Follow this quickly with gratitude and you will be on your way to a new perspective. Can you appreciate everything; even the tough, challenging moments that life offers to help us grow?
Explore where or how you can do less of what you don’t love, that which is no longer aligned with your heart, soul, or vision. We don’t always have a choice, but when someone asks you to do something that you don’t want to do, if you don’t have to do it, consider saying, “No thank you.”
As you clear some clutter, you make more time and space for that which truly does light you up. To discover this place within you, schedule some soul time.
Don’t let a once in a lifetime opportunity pass you by.
Demonstrate that you are a serious dreamer (vs. a daydreamer), by making important things happen. If your doubter or realist voices are saying things like, “It’s not the right time, you can’t afford it, don’t deserve it or just plain shouldn’t go,” here is my personal coaching.
Life is made up of precious miracles, moments, and memories. I know if you put a stake in the ground now, clearly stating your intention, it will happen. For example, just saying, “I am going no matter what,” could be one of the most profound steps of your life. Yes, “I am going because I choose to and want to” is enough.
Then calm your realist and perhaps even doubter voices by doing whatever it takes to make this happen. Transformation occurs when we say yes to the dreams we truly desire, even when there may be little or no evidence that it is the “right” thing to do. If your heart says yes and you want to be with us, then choose it and make it so. That’s what real courage is all about.
This is the last time we are offering this beautiful piece of soul work. If you are ready for a deeper and more profound relationship with yourself, please consider joining us. Either way, make time for your dreams and fall in love with your life all over again.
