Have you ever heard the words it’s harder to ignore the call than answer it?
Every part of me was like HELL YES after reading those words recently because from my own experience I know them to be true.
For so long I had a deep inner knowing there was more to life than what I was currently living but had no idea how to tap into it.
This feeling seemed to intensify EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It didn’t matter how I tried to drown it out, usually with junk foods or alcohol fuelled weekends, it was constantly there.
I can’t tell you the number of times I typed into google, how to find your purpose… it felt like the ONE QUESTION I HAD to have answered.
As I went throughout my days I just knew what I was currently living was not all I was CAPABLE OF. I knew within me I was DESTINED FOR MORE and wanted DO SOMETHING THAT MATTERED.
Something funny happens when you acknowledge this feeling in that it’s hard (cue: impossible) to go back. It’s hard to KNOW IN YOUR HEART you were DESTINED FOR MORE and not actively start moving toward it.
This feeling doesn’t go away regardless of how you try and numb it out. It doesn’t matter what you do, this inner frustration within you of un-fulfilment, un-satisfaction and restlessness will remain.
What it really is however is the FEELING OF UNTAPPED POTENTIAL and there’s NOTHING you can do to drown it out.
You might choose to ignore it because you don’t know how to honour it. You might choose to try and drown it out. You might choose to continue to play small and follow along with how the majority of other people CHOOSE to live their life.
Alternatively, you might choose to STAKE YOUR CLAIM and DECIDE that YOU’RE GOING TO WORK THIS STUFF OUT NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES OR WHAT IS INVOLVED because when push comes to shove, THERE’S ACTUALLY NO OTHER WAY TO LIVE.
And that’s what I chose because I couldn’t deal with the feeling of untapped potential, of knowing there was something greater and not take any action to realise it.
I wanted to pursue the reason I was really here. I had to answer the call.
But even though I decided to start believing I was here for a purpose and there was more I had no idea where to start.
I didn’t feel like I was exceptionally good at anything. Alas, something happened as I focused inward. As I worked on my BELIEF, my MINDSET and my SELF-AWARENESS things started to open up. Things started to shift. Things started to become clearer…
Before long the ‘there is something more feeling’ I had lived with for so many years had fallen away and been replaced with a deeper clarity and certainty around WHO I REALLY WAS, WHY I WAS HERE AND I HAD A NEW FOUND SENSE OF EAGERNESS, PURPOSE, PASSION and CONNECTION.
So if you too have this feeling of knowing there is more I want you to realise you have a choice.
You can choose to answer the call or you can choose to ignore it (the second option is MUCH HARDER).
You can choose to make a commitment to yourself that no matter what it takes you WILL FIGURE IT OUT.
You can choose to examine your beliefs and identify what ones serve you and which do not.
You can choose to stop following the majority of people who are unconscious and have really no idea who they REALLY ARE and who simply REACT to life circumstances instead of CREATING THEM.
You can choose to get REAL with yourself about what is working and what is not.
You can choose to ALLOW yourself to DREAM and IMAGINE.
You can choose to stop making excuses.
You can choose to face your fears.
You can choose to examine what patterns seem to be consistently playing out in your life and why.
You can choose to see the VALUE you have to offer the world.
You can choose to heal past wounds.
You can choose to move forward with optimism and excitement.
You can choose to listen to your heart over your head.
You can choose to be OPEN TO ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
You can choose to become HEALTHIER, WEALTHIER, HAPPIER and STEP INTO THE REAL REASON YOU ARE HERE.
You can choose to connect with your TRUE AND AUTHENTIC SELF and nurture a belief within your body, mind and soul that there is NOTHING YOU CANNOT ACHIEVE.
Because what I want you to know for sure is YOU ARE A MAGNIFICENT CREATOR.
You were born to learn, grow, know your power and live a life you TRULY LOVE.
Not be playing this small game and be feeling stuck, confused, overwhelmed.
Not be feeling like you never do anything for yourself.
Not having no clue about who you really are.
Not waiting for retirement, someday or the right time.
Not knowing how to bring desires to life.
Not going to some job you hate.
Not feeling empty or unfulfilled.
Not believing you are a victim of circumstances.
Not putting off what you really want because you don’t know how to create it.
Not believing you can’t live in your ultimate dream house.
Not believing you can’t make a positive contribution to the world.
Not blaming other people for why you can’t get ahead.
Not relying on anyone or anything else to make you happy.
Because it ALL STARTS with you.
Happiness is your responsibility.
Your dreams are your responsibility.
Your health is your responsibility.
Your relationships are your responsibility.
Your financial situation is your responsibility.
That feeling that there’s something more can only be transformed into something better than you could have ever imagined if you answer the call.
To hell with what other people think. This is your life. It’s not a dress rehearsal so for goodness sake go after what sets your heart and soul on fire.
Commit to figuring out how to excel at being you.
What kind of life do you really want to live? Are you moving closer towards it every day?
Answer the call.
