One of the main facets of the lovingME lifestyle is the concept and action of getting very clear on who you are and what you want. Not what your parents wanted or saw for you, not what your teachers saw or didn’t see, not even what your spouse sees but what you discover for yourself. Most of us go through our lives going through the motions. I know that I sure did. I followed the rules and followed the leader. We end up spending much, if not all, of our time living someone else’s agenda. Many of those agenda items may be wonderful and really important. However, if they are not yours, you will not be able to sustain high motivation and success over the long haul. In fact, they are taking away from your energy rather than building it.
But I have to work! I have to pay the bills and I have a family to support, you say. I get that. Oh, how I get that. The nice thing is that once you know who you are, or even have a general direction of what you want, you can start moving in that direction. Your vision will get clearer once you start toward it, once you decide to pursue it. Then, everything you do can be framed as a step toward your destiny.
I am still working full time at a job I love. I am blessed in that regard. But I can say that once I started toward my destiny, my commitment, focus, presence and motivation toward that job increased, exponentially, not decreased as you might expect. No, it increased because now my “why” is dramatically different and bigger than it has ever been before! I need to do well in my job for a host of reasons so I do well in my job for a host of reasons. It is who I am, now that I am clearer and embrace that part of me. It is what I do and do well. I walk my talk and the right resources are available to me because that is what I expect and that is what I request with confidence. And I am available to others in a way that isn’t typical.
My current job is a means to an end but it is also part of a wonderful journey and there is plenty to learn and to teach along the way. My company gets what they need and I get what I need and all at a higher level than is possible for someone who doesn’t have the unmatched motivation of clarity toward their real destiny. This is what I help people to discover in my life’s work. I am truly blessed.
