Unfortunately, most people base their life decisions on two things: 1. Time and 2. money. The problem with that is that 90% of us end up miserable – dreading what we do for 40 – 50 hours every week. We long to get those hours over with so we can get back to something that feels purposeful. Too many people end up living to help someone else reach their dream instead of following the passion that resonates inside of them. In other words, they resist their Divine Purpose.
I think it is important to ask yourself this question: “If time and money weren’t an issue, what would I do?” If it isn’t what you are doing now it is time to focus on what you were “born to do”. All of us were born with one or two innate gifts and talents that flow easily and freely from us if we allow them to emerge. On the other hand, most of us will probably be mediocre in almost everything else. That’s why it’s so important to know what you really want.
Here are a few tips that might help you know what you really want:
1. Make a list of what it is you don’t want – sometimes we have to identify what we absolutely don’t want in order to know what it is that makes our heart sing. Often what we want is the just opposite of what we don’t want.
2. Pay attention to what it is you envy – Pay attention to the people you come in contact with who seem the most happy. What is it they have that makes them that way. That can be a strong indication of what you truly desire.
3. Realize that material things are probably not what you really want. Most likely what you really want are the feelings you believe those material things will bring, like more freedom, more time, more abundance, less stress, more love etc.
4. Don’t be afraid to admit that happiness is what you really want. I think sometimes we are afraid that if we focus solely on happiness we will miss out on money and the comforts of life. When you make happiness your goal you are not limiting the Universe as to how to bring that to you.
Try this when you’re doing your visualizations:
Instead of visualizing how that big house and tons of money will come to you. Visualize what it would be like for you to be really happy. Put yourself in the vision place of being really, really happy. If you need to remember a time when you were, then do it. Then see how the Universe knocks itself out to deliver those things to you.
