Do you know what you want in life? What kind of person do you want to be? What do you want to do from day to day? How do you want to make your income? Do you want to travel – and to where? How do you want to contribute to society? Where do you want to live? What kind of car do you want to drive?
There are so many questions when it comes to life and how to live it! Have you made any decisions about what you want your life to be like or are you simply existing – waiting for fate to decide what is in store for you? Now, I can hear some of you saying “fate doesn’t decide, God does” and I completely understand where you’re coming from, but do you really think you have no say in the matter? A pretty famous book contains the following statement: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” God wants us to contribute to the direction of our lives – we have to ASK!
How do you ask, you say? Well, some would interpret this as simply saying the words. I don’t believe that’s enough. I believe you have to have a clear picture of what you want, believe you can receive/achieve it and be so faithful that it’s on its way, you feel grateful to have already received it! If you want it, but don’t believe you can have it, you are cutting off the energy source between you and God. Trust in him and his universal law!
So, do you know what you want? Make a list! When I started my soul searching journey, I knew a lot of things I wanted, but I had one missing piece….and it was a BIG piece! I knew where I wanted to travel, the person I wanted to be, how I want to contribute to the lives of others, etc. but I didn’t have the necessary income to do all of these things! My missing piece was how to make all of these things happen financially! I wrote list after list of things I enjoy, my talents, my abilities, the things I do as chores, etc. Then, I did a lot of internet searching for how to make money doing these things. It took me a while, but I finally found it!
I’ve been studying personal development material for almost 18 years and I’ve always loved to talk about it with anyone who will listen! In the back of my mind, a voice kept telling me to be a personal coach, but there was a bigger voice saying “You could never do that! You don’t like to talk in front of big groups of people and what would you say, anyway?” I didn’t believe in myself! Through the coaching over the last few months, I’ve come to realize this and I’m learning to trust my inner voice….someone is putting that voice in my head and I believe it’s for a reason! Everyone has a purpose….we simply need to listen to the voice inside and follow the direction given to us. It’s part of intuition, and many believe (including me) that intuition is God’s way of speaking to you. All we have to do is listen, believe and take action….which will bring the results! :o)
