The Single-Most Important Thing You Can Do Right Now
to Live out Your Purpose in 2018
january 1, 2018
Do you ever feel stuck to do what you really want to do, and wonder what it would actually take to do something you like… and still make money at it?
Turn your love (as random or non-lucrative as it may seem to you, like working on broadway or having fun with horses) into something you’re doing every single day?
What would it take to turn your purpose or your calling into a meaningful career?
Ive spent a lot of time pondering this question, friend. And I know sometimes it seems like a stretch.
But what I have found-- and have been living out! -- is that it is possible and meant for everyone, especially us in a younger generation.
I've helped countless people, just like you, do it for themselves, too.
I remember working with a client, and when she first started working with me, she said she would do anything to get out of her teaching career because she was so unhappy. She just didn’t know how.
She said, “What would it take? Pregnancy? Jail?”
😃 It had to go to that extreme to just find a way out. (Even though the secret was right inside of her all along).
And as humorous as that was, she was experiencing a lot of pain. Feeling unhappy, mediocre, and like she wasn't living out what could be awesome that God had planned for her.
That’s what I want to share with you today, the secret to how you can leave a career (or life!) you hate behind, and step into what God and your Higher Self are actually calling you to do.
...because it’s the single most important thing you could do to help yourself, and other’s you’d love to make a difference for.
This is One powerful way to get out of your rut or unhappy place in life…
The single most important thing you could do for yourself right now, to set you up for 2018.
Here’s the skinny:
- Live from your Vision & follow Your Fantasy.
Instead of just asking yourself, "what’s next?” Allow yourself to dream bigger. What is that fantasy that I even have a hard time admitting to myself because I think it’s so fantastic that it might not even be real (but if it happened…. oh boy now you’re plucking my heart strings...).
Instead of just going for mediocre or what is safe, go for that thing that is something better!
(I share a great story about what a difference this made in my client Sean... you can check out the webinar replay here.)
That is what you want to live by, and that’s the fantasy you want to have the courage to follow… because it’s in there for a reason.
When we follow THAT roadmap, even though it might seem risky, random, or too good... that's the roadmap that leads us to
the guidance to get us what we desire deep down.
God finds the way to make it work for you, as long as you take some action to get there, believe that it’s even remotely possible, and are open enough to say, God, i surrender, you know what i want, now how i can i get there?
If you just go asking yourself, what’s next, your trajectory for the future will be quite low (albeit, feeling safer. It won’t get you what you want, because unfortnuately, just doing the ‘right next thing’ will only prepare you for that thing… it might not prepare you for your dream.
If you actually live from your vision, tho, and make decisions backtracking from that ultimate goal, you’ll probably make a lot of more cooler (bigger!) decisions. AND you can know your actions are definitely leading you to a place you want to go.
So what to do about it?
Did you know the opposite of expression is de-pression? That’s right. These go hand in hand. If you’re feeling in a rut, just start somewhere, and start to express yourself in a way that feels good to you. This allows your intuition to start to flow, and can even have you hearing more of your inner guidance (that knows the bigger way anyway), and off you go, in the current of clarity, leading you to go quickly to what you truly desire and see for yourself deep down.
(i.e.... What you are meant for!)
As author of You are a Badass says,
Our fantasies are our realities in an excuse-free world.
2018 is the best time to live that. Start now. And here’s how you can get started.
1. Make a vision board of that vision for yourself. On the vision board...
2. Pick a character or person that represents what you want. This way you have the essence of someone who you can tap into, all in one place. (I'll be vulnerable here.. for real, mine is Wonderwoman Galdot. She rocks and is the epitome of what I want!).
3. What are touchstones you can put in place now that would help you connect to that bigger vision? (Oprah used to always have real flowers in her home, to at least signify she could have what she wanted eventually, and connect to her bigger dream). And on that note, even as a touch stone, what is an ACTION step you can take (even if it’s small!) to connect you to your vision.
(For example personally, I’m applying to speak at a well-known larger conference in the area, because it speaks and connects with the person I want to become. Have I ever done that? No! Am I scared! Sure! But I can still do it, and the process itself is quite simple. So I'm doing it anyway! we got nothing to lose! and it connects to something even bigger than the conference.
I'd love to hear your feedback from this writing, and what you're deciding to focus on in the beginning of this 2018. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know what you thought, and I'll be in touch to say hey!
