There’s always going to be some tension between what you ought to be doing and what you want to be doing at any given moment. If that weren’t the case, the whole world would be full of thin, fit, healthy people, jogging to work, eating kale, and never drinking too much on a Friday night out with friends..
It’s true that sacrificing what you want in the moment for the sake of furthering your long-term goals is just part of basic adulting. We all know that.
When it comes to living an extraordinary mission-driven life, if you focus solely on what you “ought” to be doing, and you pay little attention to what your gut is telling you about what you are MEANT to be doing…
You may reach the career goals you are striving for, but you will never attain the kind of passionate fulfillment and deep purpose that every human truly desires.
If we’re doing something that we’re not passionate about, we can solve problems and become materially successful, but we will be miserable, and regretful in the end.
On the flip side, if we’re pursuing our passions, but not in service to others in a meaningful, life-changing, world-changing way, we’ll feel hedonistically empty and unfulfilled.
The good news is this: It doesn’t have to be binary. It’s not an either/or proposition, and we can do both.
Better yet, to live a truly remarkable life, we have to do both; tap into what we’re passionate about, and use that passion to change the lives around us.
This is where joy + money flows abundantly.
If you feel like you are going through the motions, grinding your way to the top with no joy in what you are doing, I want to help you reclaim your passion.
I want to help you rediscover what makes you excited to get up and get back to it every morning. Let’s talk through how you got here, where you started, and perhaps find the place where you turned the wrong direction and lost your purpose.
And most importantly, where we need to go next in order to live the life you were meant to live.
There’s still time to get it back. Message me if you’re looking for help. I can show you how.
Today I want to talk more about that, and about the importance of a support and accountability network for long term success and growth. The
