Are you listening to the world or yourself? The world will demand you meet its needs if you let it. It will give you all kinds of reasons to do what it tells you. It will result in a never-ending game of When-Then.
When you get that job, promotion, bonus, or new house Then you will be happy, respected, and successful.
When you create a real light saber, Then you will become the coolest dad in the universe. (Wait, don’t write that, Greg. Use your inside voice on that one.)
When-Then always leaves us wanting more and much less happy than we thought we’d be.
The world will whisper that you’re not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough. Your job isn’t prestigious or important enough. You don’t do anything significant. You don’t really count and you never will.
Man, the world is kind of a jerk.
Yup. So why do we listen to it?
Listen to yourself and follow your Passionate Purpose to be happier, more successful, more significant and a better person for all you love. You get to decide what’s important to you and your family. Don’t give that power to anyone else.
Why are you doing what you’re doing right now? Are you happy with that answer?
When passion and desire meet you have tremendous power. When you put everything into it – you have more enjoyment and success. Don’t murder your dreams by telling yourself you can’t do what you feel you were born to do.
Living an extraordinary life isn’t just for the special or elite. Everyone can do it, but not everyone will do it.
Decide what you want, why you want it, and start today with some baby steps to get there. It doesn’t have to be a huge leap, but you do have to begin.
