DISCOVERING HOW WE ARE WIRED- Do You Know What Your Next Step In Life Is?
Today you will lack direction and passion and walk in discouragement. You will believe that too much time has passed for you to realize and walk in your purpose. You will believe that the struggles of your life have removed the zeal and focus and it is better and easier to stay where it is safe, comfortable and reachable. You watch others realize their purpose and dreams and gain a sense of failure and loss because somewhere inside, you too long to be walking in your dreams for life. However, your life is so hard, too many knockdowns and closed doors have been placed in your way and you don’t think you have the energy or even hope left to pursue something greater. You continue to believe that it is too late in years, too late due to the issues in your life, too late in missed opportunities, too late in time, too late for everything.
I so get that. At some point in our struggles of life we say, “Just screw it!” and convince ourselves that our purpose and dreams don’t matter. Maybe, what you really need is help and encouragement to find your way.
The first question to ask ourselves is who am I? (THEMES) What makes up the combination of positives and negatives throughout my life and what are the themes that have continually been a part of my life? What is my story that has been created to serve the purpose in my life?
The second question to ask how am I wired? (PASSIONS) What are the actions that I do that aid others (influencing, speaking, teaching, serving, leading, creating, etc.)? Also, what do I do that gives me pleasure, offers a challenge, yet is beneficial to others? If your answer is only about you, more understanding and time will be needed.
The last question to ask is where am I going? (BURDENS) This is a difficult question because it will require looking at areas we would rather not see. Ask, what have I learned about myself and others because of the pain, trials and negative situations that I have been through? Have those situations made me bitter or better in how I see myself and others? Finally, because of my story and the things that I have learned, failed, and grown in, I realize that if I had all the resources I needed, my heart’s desire to DO or BE in life is ________.
My question to you is, “When will you begin your journey?”
Be encouraged, it’s a journey not a destination.
