At a lovely dinner last night here in Park City, I had a conversation with a good friend of mine. We were talking about finding your purpose in life and how it feels when you just don't know what that is. We talked around the subject and then came to the realization that you know your purpose, it's inside of you just waiting to get out. There are quite a few folks in the world who are already living their purpose, but I would have to guess that there are more who are not. They are stuck in jobs they don't like, relationships that aren't working and are not saying yes to their souls. Fast forward an appetizer or two, and we came up with the lovely conclusion that you do have your purpose inside of you. It's the unlocking of steps to get you to that a-ha moment, that lovely, yummy version of yourself. The one where you no longer feel that emptiness inside and that voice inside your head that says, "I know there is more!"
So, the inevitable question becomes how do we get there? How do we unlock those steps? For me it was years of workshops, coaching, therapy, etc. It's just what I had to do. It can get frustrating but it's that one coach who will give you the tools to get the job done yourself who will be the most valuable. We all go to the workshops and hope that "they" give us the answers. How many of you can relate to this? When you make that switch to "I can do this!", the answers will flow more easily.
As I continued to talk to my dear friend, we realized that you can work on finding your passion at night while still in your day job. Just start! Just start with small steps and it will keep the momentum building and the energy going forward. It's when you stop and try and re-start a few months later that you have problems getting the energy up to full speed. Try it, just do three things a day. Sit down and write three things a day that you want to accomplish. The feeling of completing those three things will have you feeling so good, you will continue with the rest of that long to-do list. Baby steps, my dear, baby steps.
It took me 50 years to finally see what my purpose here on earth was. Some folks are blessed to find it way early and some way later than me. It's that acceptance of knowing that it is inside of you and that you eventually will have the tools to tease it out that will make your life so much richer!
