Have you ever been in that place where you have wondered if you should be doing more with your life?
I think we probably all have.
I think there’s a reason for that.
The truth is that there is more. And I think you know that. But you’ve reasoned enough with yourself. You’ve gotten comfortable. So, your life that you’re living now is merely what you do.
But is it who you are? Does everything you do in your life have your own stamp on it? Do you go to sleep at night proud of your accomplishments. Do you feel you’ve contributed value to the world? Does your passion and influence rub off on others?
Or do you not believe in all of that self-help garbage? Were you meant to just show up? So you are here, potentially numb to life and the things around you.
I was. For years. I had dreams, hopes and aspirations. I gave them everything I had. Until I couldn’t anymore. Then I stopped. I settled for the idea of just letting life happen. Wallowed.
And then one day I woke up. It was like somebody grabbed me and shook me. I was reminded that I believed in something and it was important to me. There was a message that I was supposed to be sharing.(for more details of my personal journey, check out the post, “Are you ashamed of your jalopy?“)
So here I am. Finally sharing it. A message that I discovered when I was 20 years old. It only took me 11 years to get to this moment right now. (Sorry for the delay.)
My message is that there is more. Specifically, there is more in you. There is more for you to discover and more for you to share. My purpose is to pull it out of you and show it off to the world.
So, let’s talk. I like to ask questions. Dig deep. I might annoy you or call you out, but I will not relent. Because I believe. I believe you have a purpose and a gift. The good news is that it doesn’t matter how your gift has been packaged or wrapped. That’s just an excuse. An excuse to keep you comfortable and safe. The true gift is what’s inside of you waiting to be shared.
This is going to take risk. It’s going to be scary. But it will be worth it.
It’s time to lead the life you were meant to live. Let’s get started. Together.
What is the thing you have always wanted to do but have kept inside, scared to even share the thought out loud? What has been your reason for not pursuing it? Share in the comments.
