Follow Your Bliss
What am I here to do?
What do I wish to do?
Go within and listen to your heart.
Its your authentic journey that makes you feel alive. Don't follow your wallet or other people. Listen to the call of your spirit.
How do you find your bliss?
What do you love doing, that when you engage in, time just disappears?
Where did you not fit in at school that could be your bliss?
Just because you don't know, don't put your head in the sand. If you are thinking about your bliss you will find your bliss.
Try different things. Do something that will stretch you every 7 days. You may discover something you didn't know about yourself.
Why do we not follow our bliss? One word.....fear.
What will others think of me if I fail?
We think others hold us back but we are the ones that say "I am not going to do this"
"Opportunties to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging" says Joseph Campbell.
Its not about getting rid of the fear but having courage. Courage is about getting up consistently. The ability to get up when knocked down. Facing fears and overcoming them gives us power. Go up to your fears so you can move through them. Its easy to give up on a job or walk away from a friendship. We can run away but courage is walking through it.
How to get out of it?
We need to stop fighting. We need to surrender. Who are we fighting.....we are fighting ourselves.
Loving and accepting yourself just as you are is the way through.
When we die we are all buried together, the CEO beside the truck driver, the multi-millionaire beside the homeless. What matters is how we show up. What difference did we make.
The privilege of a lifetime is who you are.
We push through the scariest thing possible to find the gold underneath our limits.
