I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and are ready for the New Year!!! I can’t believe that 2017 is almost here and while most people are taking stock of this last year, I wanted to do something a lil different. I want you to look forward and really search your heart.
Sometimes in life, we take the long way around. Some of us know exactly what we want to do professionally with our lives when we are very young. Yet others of us are multi-passionate and like to try on different hats to see which one fits us the best. If you are one of the latter people (like I am), you may have tried a bunch of different career paths that STILL may not feel quite right. But don’t despair!
If you are reading this, I can guarantee that you have a SPECIAL GIFT that you truly want to give to the World. It may be something Creative like Photography, Writing a book or Painting. On the more Professional side, it may be being an Engineer, Accountant or Interior Designer. You may even have a MUCH LARGER DREAM like saving Elephants or helping animals that are near extinction to stop being hunted. Your cause may be helping children that are refugees from war torn countries that have no family or home to speak of. There are many causes you can help with but here’s the thing to remember – YOU MUST FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
If you follow your heart, you need to know that your ideas will probably not be popular and they DEFINITELY won’t be either easy or make sense. Take this as a given and accept it – hell, even embrace it, because if you don’t put this little gem to the side – you will never decide to move forward with your “crazy” idea.
God may have given you an idea that may be HUGE and even a game changer that will affect the planet in a very big way. This idea will probably have been rolling around in your head for a while and you have put it to the side because it is either too big, too hard or even the thought of it overwhelms you and you don’t know where to start. It will also seem CHR-AAA-ZZY!! to not only you but anyone else that you tell about it. EXPECT people to tell you that it’s too hard, it doesn’t make sense and it can’t work.
You may even do research on Google Ad words which will come up with very, very small numbers = not worth putting effort into due to low search results. (NOTE: Google Ad words allows you to type in a phrase or words and it will show you how many times people have searched the web using those same words. It basically tells you if what you are typing in is popular and people are looking for it – or not.) So LOGICALLY we have an idea that was placed on our HEART that is not being widely searched on by Google. Our friends (and even sometimes we) think it’s a little bananas AND we have no way in hell of figuring out how to make it come true. BRILLIANT – THIS IS NOW SOMETHING YOU MUST MOVE FORWARD WITH!
Why? Because it was placed on your HEART for a reason – which is that ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THIS DREAM COME TRUE. Like Frodo in Lord Of The Rings, only YOU can get the ball rolling to start making a positive change in the World. Here is the really cool part, once you take the first steps towards your crazy dream, all the pieces will start to fall into place. The Universe will support you and start to bring new people for you to work with and mentors to guide you along your path. So don’t ignore what your heart is telling you any longer. We never know how much time we have on this Earth and I (and I am sure you) want to do what we have been called to do.
Remember this: Ryan Reynolds tried for 10 years to get the movie DeadPool made. Everyone told him it sucked and he was crazy to want to do the movie but it made sense to him. He is now up for 2 Golden Globe nominations and it is the first superhero movie to EVER be nominated for one. (It’s awesome by the way, I have seen it at least 5 times – super funny!) Steve Jobs was called crazy for a long time. Everyone thought what he was doing could not be done and was a far off dream, yet he made it come true and now to us a smart phone is normal. What is a phone that only calls people now? Archaic! Follow Your Heart that’s all you need to do.
