You only have one life. Make it count.
Let’s face it: You either listen to your heart or you don’t. You either step one step towards your dream with your heart, or not. There is nothing in between. (Getting ready does not really count…we are never fully ready. Even when we think we are, Life thinks otherwise and throws us off the horse. I think you know this one, too…..
I hear you saying “but how can I listen to my heart when I have a cosy job and life that gives me security? I love dreaming about my ideal life but I cannot let go of my comfort and stability I have worked so hard for…”.
The truth is, we all love comfort and security. We also want to lead a purposeful life that offers joy we so yearn for, the ease we need, the freedom we crave in our work and a heart at peace. The problem is that many of us shut that thing out our heart is dying for. The thing that makes you burn the floor under your feet with passion. The project you have been struggling to make happen for years. That one thing only You can do. Your Life Work.
So we make up that our current comfort is a good enough compensation. And it may well be. But then why is it that you cannot sleep in peace and still dreaming about going to Africa to help women, or to set up your own school? Or run your vintage car boutique? Or be a safari guide? Or travel the world and get paid for it? Or live in Tuscany and write a book, or do food reviews as your paid job? Or be married to your soul mate?
You have a big dream, too. I know it. We all have one.And sooner or later it eats our souls away if we do not act. I know it; mine ate me for years out of fear, vulnerability and Heaven only knows how long my excuse list still is.
The good news is that when heart speaks and we listen deeply, our brilliant brain can help us work though solutions. It doe snot have to be complicated, overwhelming or ineffective. So today here is a list of five questions to help you get to your heart and life work .
If you could have your dream life right now, how would it look like? What job would you be doing? Who would you work with? How would you spend your day?
