Do you ever feel a yearning deep inside you to do something greater with your life? It feels like it could just pull you apart because you so desperately want something more, something different. And yet, you are not sure of quite what it is that you want and you certainly aren’t sure how to get it.
Perhaps I should move. But where would I go?
Perhaps I should change my career. But what am I supposed to do with my life?
Perhaps I should look for love. But where will I ever find my soul mate?
Below are three great lessons when it comes to trying to figure out how, exactly, you are supposed to follow your calling.
Keep hope alive within you. Even when others say that they do not feel the pull toward something different. Even when others warn you of the dangers. Even when you feel scared of the unknown. Even when you aren’t sure what the outcome will be. Keep hope alive within you and follow your dreams.
Give fully of yourself. Trust that when you give fully of yourself, when you give that which seems impossible to give, your gifts to others will be returned to you in unimaginable ways. The thing that you yearn for most deeply is the very thing that you have to give to anyone who needs it. Give away that which you desire and watch it multiply in your life.
Take a leap of faith. Practice the wisdom you seek. When you find a nugget of inspiration follow it. When you are asked to leap, leap. Do not write it off as a dirty trick when you catch a glimpse of clarity only to fall back down with a thud. Have faith that the next time you are asked to leap, you just may learn to fly. In fact, you may find that you possess the very power that you always feared.
Where are you on your path? Are you still in mouse village or have you already embarked on your journey? Have you taken a leap of faith? Remember to keep hope alive within you because the world needs that gift that only you have to give. Namaste.
