This saying comes to mind because at one point things were, in fact, great – right?
You have a great job, family, home, and lots of other “things”. You checked everything off the proverbial list of what society teaches us success looks like.
You were content for a while and you had it all figured out…until that day came. That change. This was the day you discovered that there was a piece missing.
A piece so big that even on the most victorious of days, there is this small voice that says to you, “but wait, there’s more”.
What is the “more” she speaks of? It’s your passion… your purpose… it’s your higher calling.
“Everybody has a calling. And your real job in life is to figure out as soon as possible what that is, who you were meant to be, and to begin to honor that in the best way possible for yourself.”
– Oprah Winfrey
Whatever your roadblock is, whether it’s an end to a relationship, a lay off, or even a position you’ve worked long and hard for that’s no longer fulfilling to you, that is God’s way of telling you that it’s time for a change. It’s time to answer your higher calling, to do the work you’re meant to do.
It’s time to get clear on what’s next for you.
The key to determining your next best move is to start by tuning in to your intuition. Whenever you feel stuck or confused about something, it just means you’re not listening to yourself, that inner guidance.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
– Carl Jung
The best way to tune in is through meditation. Making time to BE still and silent will bring you back into focus and you’ll open up to receive the answers you’re looking for.
Understand the answers you receive may not seem logical. That’s your old self talking. The one who puts labels on what success should and shouldn’t look like. That version of you got you to where you are, but she isn’t going to get you where you need to be.
You have a unique blueprint. You have natural talent and abilities that only YOU can offer others. These are the things you’re passionate about that light you up inside. Whatever this is for you…this is your calling.
It’s time to answer the call.
