What you are doing, in your life, right now, this very minute; is it enhancing or postponing your dreams? Are you working on your dream, fulfilling your purpose or working on someone else’s dreams, on someone elses purpose? Is this what you wanted to do when you grew up? Is your life where you thought it would be by now? If so, Awesome. If not, what can you do to start shifting your time, energy and efforts, to be working on your own dreams?
For my birthday, last December, I gave myself a year for me. And what an amazing year it has been. I started pouring good things into my heart, found some great books to read, started listening to empowering podcasts, filling my life with better people, I learned some positive meditations, took up yoga, running, weight training, went to conferences, joined positive groups, took positive and empowering courses… basically any and all positive things I could do – I did it!. Through all of this personal development, I learned and decided what I wanted. I wanted to help others. I wanted to INSPIRE others. I wanted to somehow share my heart with the world. I wanted to travel the world helping others. And so it began. I started working on my dreams in the tiny pockets of my life, in between my four –yes four, full-time jobs!
So, I started designing little positive pictures, and writing on breaks with my cellphone, I started coaching others with the amazing things I was learning, I started searching for mentors, meeting with them between jobs. I started asking questions to everyone who would answer and sharing my knowledge with anyone who would listen. There were so many people needing help with the same things so I started writing my thoughts to share with more people at one time. Almost everyone needed love and worth of some sort. So… I started BetterMeTribe. I started helping and speaking to people in large groups. I started my first book! I started to travel the world on mission trips. I talked to people about my missions dreams and they wanted to come too, so, I started building teams. Our first team leaves in January to Kenya! The point is. I started. But first, I filled my soul until it was overflowing, then the magic happened. I was able to replace three of my four jobs with two businesses of my passion,
To do anything amazing in life you need only to start!
The most amazing journey of our lives awaits us! Every step is either a step towards your dreams or a step away. There is no standing still here. If you’re not moving towards your dreams, you are moving away. Just take the steps! With every step towards our dreams we will be learning lessons and helping others. Our purposes are so much bigger than us! And they are so much bigger than being chained to a desk, stocking a shelf, cleaning a toilet or working ourself to death at any and all jobs we can find just to make ends meet! Jobs are for people who settle. Careers are for people who don’t. Passions are for fulfilling our purposes, chasing our dreams and changing the world. It is our life’s passion to help and serve others. The ones beside you and others all around the world will feel the impact you make. You know you are supposed to help others, but maybe, you just didn’t know how yet.
Everyone’s purpose is helping others…
– we need only to figure out how.
We must figure out what our SOUL is crying out to do! A light has been planted in there– Let it out!! We must crack ourselves open. Give ourselves time to stop, think, listen. HEAR IT. FEEL IT. Learn from it. Yearn for it. And then start feeding it, so it can grow and get louder and louder until its shining out from inside of us. Until it wakes us up early every day in excitement and keeps us up late at night dying to serve others to fulfill our purpose! Until nothing else matters!
There is not a better feeling in this entire planet than the one where we are fulfilling our souls purpose!
So, what is your dream? What do you need to do to figure it out? I highly suggest you start reading, yes, actual books. Start talking gratitude walks. Listen to with either positive podcasts in the car. Take a yoga class, learn meditations. Find some guided meditations that feel right for you. Some are great, some are a little wacky. Find the empowering ones, or even the ones that teach you to quiet your mind and control and organize your thoughts, so that you can think clearly. Just whatever it takes to fill your gas tank per say; To fuel your fire.
We don’t have to know everything right now, and we won’t see it clearly until we get there, and maybe even beyond. Picture it like our dreams are on the other side of a thick fog, and every step we take out into faith, into the fog, we can see things clearer and clearer. Every step, action, thought, prayer, movement puts us in the directions of our dreams, and gets us that much closer!
We should work on our dreams with every spare moment we get! And they will become bigger and bigger, as well as the time we get to work on them will grow. Maybe we need to switch our mundane job for one that aligns with our dreams, one that teaches the skills, the trades, the lingo that is going to help us get to our dreams and ROCK THEM. Many times there is some lesson we need to learn before we can take that next step towards our dreams. Learn it, take it, repeat!
Our dreams don’t come for us, but, they do wait patiently for us to be ready for them. What is it that your soul is crying out to be doing right now, and forever? Figure it out and GO FOR IT. <3
