Have you ever felt like you were meant for something bigger? Do you get tired of the humdrum of fighting traffic to get to a job that doesn’t pay you enough, to spend most of your week away from the house that you’re struggling to pay mortgage on? Do you have a dream, but tell yourself now is not the time? Or I can’t afford to do it? Or any other reason to talk yourself out of pursuing your purpose?
Someone once told me to find what you love to do, and figure out how to get paid for doing it. That simple statement stuck with me. Have you ever seen the guy on the food network show that goes to all of these different states, and gets paid to eat? He loves to eat, and the network pays him to do it. Now that’s what I call a career!
We all have something that we’re good at. If you haven’t found it yet, just sit and think about what area you excel in. If need be, ask loved ones what area they see you excel in. Once you have that, think outside the box. You don’t have to follow a traditional path like others have.
If you excel in teaching, create a program that you would like to teach, and offer it. If you like to bake, think about opening a specialty dessert business. What I’m saying is your only limitation is yourself. There are few things worse than unfulfilled purpose, and a life of regrets.
For example, I excel in teaching, and my passion is health. I (along with my business partner) started Nadine Renee Naturals. (www.nadinereneenaturals.com) That’s just one area I’m fulfilling my purpose. 2SexyMoms is another area. Since you’re already on this site, and reading this blog, you already know what we’re about. (smile)
So my question to you is this, are you fulfilling your purpose? If not, why not? What’s stopping you? Think outside the box! Live your purpose and you’ll never have to “work” a day in your life!
