If you change nothing, nothing changes.
One decision can start a series of events that change your entire life, but you first need to decide. Many of us are paralyzed in indecision but it's important to realize that not making a decision, is in itself, making a decision, and by not deciding or changing you most definitely will remain exactly where you are. In this article we dig into:
Decision making to gain momentum
Starting to walk in the direction of your unique purpose
The best series of videos on how to find your gift and create a life that is congruent with who you are
I really believe that finding our purpose and living in it, is the most important thing that we can do in our lives'. I also think that it is a journey and that for some of us we don't inherently know what our life calling is and need to work to uncover it. When it comes to this, I believe that making a decision is the first step in the process. I find a lot of us are paralyzed with overthinking, we know we are not happy where we are but we don't know where we want to go and so we continue on with the same routine day by day just going through the motions. But, if we change nothing, nothing changes.
With that said, make a decision, any decision, it doesn't have to be the right one, you can always course correct later, at least you will be moving forward. Has real estate, baking, painting, entrepreneurship, coaching, cooking, accounting, you name it, always interested you? Than make a decision to jump in and commit to diving deep into that subject. Learn about it, start the thing, do it all before you are ready and you will learn as you go. Then over time you will be able to identify that this is the thing that really fills you up and you want to dedicate your life to it, or it is not. Even if it is not, then you have learned new skills, exercised a growth mindset, created new experiences and memories but most importantly you learned that this isn't your calling and then you can move onto the next thing.
Every time you make a decision and go all-in you are learning about yourself and growing as person, all while on the path to finding your purpose. Sometimes you actually need to intentionally grow your interest from a curiosity in a given field and work on developing it before it becomes your purpose. We cannot expect that for everyone it will just fall into your lap. You also need to consider that as you evolve as a person so may your purpose, and so it is really all about a journey of growth, of living life on purpose.
Think of all the time wasted, trying to think ourselves into finding our purpose, instead of just going out there and trying the things. This ends up as just another day lost and not taking any steps in any direction. You need to try it, you need to live it, it can't all be done in your head. Your mind is actually set up to be resistant to change because of our evolutionary need to stay safe because of harder living situations that our ancesters had to survive and live through. Your mind will actually try to convince to stay in the same place because it feels safer knowing the environment, even if it is actually making you miserable. In order to make a break you will need to get active and to create momemtum, to become the designer of your own life.
So, decide! Today, make a decision on one thing that you are going to pursue with all you have and go for it.
To give you an addtional dose of inspiration, I have rounded up some of the best videos on the subject of purpose so that you get to hear different perspectives, to help get you motivated and to learn from those individuals who are living in theirs. If you do nothing else, please watch the first video, it is only 4 minutes long and I personally think it will change your life and get you to take that first step!
Please let me know down in the comments what is one decision that you are going to make today as you look to discover your purpose? Remember, you are only one decision away from living the life of your dreams!!!!!!
