Do what you are meant to do!
How many people out there are not doing what they are meant to do?
Well lets first define what it means to do what you are meant to do!
To do what you are meant to do is to do what you love! That is what you are meant to do, that is your purpose here on Earth!
So many people think that others are meant to do what they expect them to do and then those people do what is expected of them.
You might want to read that last sentence again!
What generally comes up when we entertain the possibility of doing what we love to do is all the reasons/excuses of why we can’t!
Start by writing a list of all the things that you love doing.
There is an invisible box that we have all been put into growing up. The walls of the box are the limitations that have been put onto us by others—the limiting beliefs, the fears and our limiting identity that others have formed for us.
That is not who we are—that is programming that stops us from doing what we are meant to do and being who we are meant to be—but realise that doing and being are one in the same.
New age spirituality would have us believe that we are not a ‘human doing’ but we are a ‘human being’. It is a little play on words but it is not accurate. They make out that one is better than the other. “It is more spiritual ‘to be’ rather than ‘to do’” The truth is that ‘being’ is ‘doing’ and vice versa!
Focus your whole mind on what it is you love to do and little by little you will start to do more of it on a daily basis.
It may start as a trickle and then it will build into a flowing river of ‘love doings’.
Once you write your list of what you love to do, then you want to order it in order of importance. Also look at which of your love to’s is going to bring you the most rewards and fulfilment in life.
You may love to watch movies, but if you watched movies 6 hours a day then after a few months you would be bored and feeling unfulfilled in you life.
Some of your love to’s could be termed as escapism or distraction and any more than 20% of your time spent in distraction will lead to feeling unfulfilled in your life.
Do not fool yourself by thinking that all your ‘love to’s’ are the things that are convenient, easy and even fun.
Some of your love to’s will be challenging, difficult and even scary—at first anyway!
“What would I love to do today?” “What would I love to do this week?” “What would I love to do this month?” What would I love to do this year?” What would I love to do this decade?” What would I love to do for the rest of my life?”
Ask yourself these questions daily and write down your answers and keep refining your long term answers as you step into your life of doing what you love and loving what you do!
