Have you ever wondered how some people know exactly what they want to do at a young age? Yet others spend a great deal of their life going from one job to another or stay in a job that they simply do not like. I ask the question, “Why?”
Why does the latter seem like the norm? Does the following scenario seem like the norm to you?
You spend 1/3 of your day doing something that you don’t really enjoy by waking up Monday mornings with regret to start the day, get a breath of fresh air during lunch, nod off, sometimes literally in the afternoon, then suddenly come alive at 4:55 pm to rush out the door, get a few hours reprieve, simply to do it all over again for another 4 days.
This is no way to live! It’s actually not living, but existing. We weren’t meant to just exist…we were meant to have more meaning, more enjoyment, and abundance in our lives.
Shouldn’t enjoying what we do be a co-requisite in living an abundant life? Shouldn’t we strive to live a great life, while making a living? After all, this is what God wants for us. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
When you think about it, nowadays you can earn a living doing just about anything if you’re willing to work to get what you want. Yes, some people have it a little easier than others, but most times, a little blood sweat and tears have to be shed to live & work in a life that you love.
The Question is, “What do you really enjoy doing? What can you do for hours a day and never really get tired?” What lights you up? What moves your heart?
You owe it to yourself to live the life that you love. So when do you want to begin living that life? The time to start is today….don’t wait another minute. Get clear on what you love and begin taking the steps to create a life that you want.
Don’t wait, don’t hesitate, just get started!
