Person #1 is a hard worker. He has a dream and is committed to making it happen. He moves forward with hope and belief that he will find a way, and makes numerous sacrifices in the pursuit.
But in the back of his mind, there is a nagging question that always says, “What if it doesn’t work?”
Person #2 is also a hard worker. He also has a dream and is committed to making it happen. He moves forward with hope and belief that he will find a way, and makes numerous sacrifices in the pursuit.
But the difference is that Person #2 is the one who can say with absolute confidence, “I KNOW everything is going to work out, because I know that I’m doing exactly what I should be doing.”
The paradox lies in the fact that Person #1 may have a whole lot more going for him, but Person #2 has more happiness and peace of mind on the journey.
What makes the difference?
Person #2 is actively engaged in work that helps him magnify his life’s purpose. Not only is he following his dream of a wonderful lifestyle for his family, but he’s picked a vehicle that gives him tremendous satisfaction, even if there were no financial compensation.
The paradox also lies in the fact that although Person #2 will likely face tremendous obstacles (perhaps even more so than person #1), HE is the one who will have deeper reservoirs of faith to draw from, and more peace of mind in the face of possible disaster.
That’s the benefit of choosing for your life’s work, something for which you have a special interest and unique experience or talents.
The fact is, Life has a natural way of encouraging YOU along to discovering and accomplishing your unique contribution to society that only you can do. Something inside beckons you – to cast all fear aside and do the thing that your spirit is compelling you to do.
Reason talks you out of it.
But I can assure you, that when you take even the smallest step in the right direction, you will have an unmistakable feeling deep down of knowing that you’re on the right path.
Trust it! Don’t let “reason” talk you out of it.
As you do, storms may rage, but you WON’T be troubled by them. That’s true financial freedom. Financial freedom is NOT a function of how much money you have in the bank, but actually a function of how true you are living to your life’s soul purpose.
For Person #1, there is no guarantee of lasting peace of mind. In the short term, he may reach any goal that he puts his mind to. But if his work brings him NO real joy or satisfaction outside of the financial paycheck, he will always live in uncertainty.
Uncertainty and unrest is Life’s way of getting your attention and trying to send you in a better direction.
A natural benefit for those who live their purpose, is that God gives them strength to overcome obstacles, and endurance to weather the inevitable challenges.
No question, each of us has a work to do, different from anyone else. You will be supported best when you let go of your fears and engage in that work, even if it’s just in a small and simple way in your spare time.
I promise, your faith will be tested to see how committed you really are, and it could be years or even decades before you are solidly into the “flow” of it, but when you ARE engaged in it, even in just a small way to begin with, you’ll find that all you really need comes through, just when you need it (and sometimes not any sooner than that.)
I believe that’s God’s promise. Follow your heart, and He’ll keep you and your family going…
…until His work THROUGH you is complete.
Let me walk you step-by-step through this transition from uncertainty to certainty. I’ll help you let go of your fears, so you can proceed with confidence as you discover and then engage in the work you’re here to do. When you’re truly following your purpose, it hardly feels like work.
Then, abundant financial rewards are a natural by-product…
So let’s get going!
