Are you enjoying your job/career? Do you feel like you HAVE to do it for the money, or security, or some other reason that’s keeping you stuck?
Do you ever dream of doing something else that would allow you to live your purpose and feel fulfilled?
Joseph Campbell is quoted as saying: “I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave.”
When you’re doing something to earn a living that you don’t like, you may not only be “selling your soul”, you are depriving others of your unique talent.
Just think, there may be many people out there that are lacking the benefit of your product or services. If you were living your purpose, you could be contributing something great to society, even if you’re simply serving others in a passionate way.
If you’re not sure what you want to do, then it’s time to find some clarity. Close your eyes and imagine the life you want to live. FEEL the joy in that vision.
Create a vision board of what you want to be doing, with photos of your ideal life – serving others in a way that brings you joy.
When you use your imagination, you are shifting your mindset in the direction you need to go. And the life you love will follow.
