Sometimes talking the talk and walking the walk can be two very different and difficult things. What I know is that each and every one of you is absolutely, magnificently, uniquely capable of becoming anything and going anywhere your heart leads. If fear keeps you from taking that first big step, take smaller steps. Start by making a list. On one side the page, list what you love to do, what you are really good at doing and what others come to you for help with. On the other side of the page, write three things that you have always wanted to be. Seeing how they match up will give you an idea and a direction. This first, small step will make it easier for you to take another.
If you want to know whether you are doing everything you can to create a more fulfilling, happier and successful life, ask. Who do you ask? Yourself. You are the only one who knows the answer to that question. But ask honestly and without judgement lest you invite Ego into the conversation. If the answer is “NO”, ask yourself what is holding you back and then make a list of the answers. Once you have your list, crumple it up and throw it away. Then open a dictionary. You will find it full of verbs (words that describe actions). Pick one that speaks to you and use it. How? Listen to your intuition. It chose that verb for a reason. It is the next step on your path to fulfillment, creativity, passion and success. Come back tomorrow to find out why the definition of “Ego” didn’t seem to match this discussion.
