Honouring your calling
It’s our responsibility to ourselves and to those around us to grab all the opportunities the universe presents to us. There’s something inside all of us – an inner voice that recognises opportunities and makes us think, “I should be doing that”, “I’d be great at that” or “I’d love to do that”. However, more often than not there’s a counter voice that tells us, “I can’t do that’”. “I can’t do that because I’m doing something else”, or “because I might not be good enough”.
When you begin embrace the opportunities presented to you, the universe will present you with more and more. This will give you the energy to do what you should be doing. You’ll want more, you’ll feel excited and you’ll create momentum in your life.
The sad truth is that so many people do not honour this calling or embrace these opportunities. They don’t have the fundamental belief that we were put on this earth to do something well, rather than to do something poorly. We were put here to do something that we enjoy, to have a great time and to give value to those around us. By not engaging in opportunities, our skills and motivation will, bit by bit, die off inside. Our spark, the light inside of us and that uniqueness that no-one else has will start to fade. When this happens you live a life less than satisfactory than it could have been, and it’s a shame – life can work for you if you let it, and our choices can become self-fulfilling. It can be easy to convince ourselves that we shouldn’t have done it, or we shouldn’t have taken the risk – after all, nothing came of it, so why bother? But if we don’t take the risk and or take up these opportunities with energy and passion then we lose our chance. We need to wait for the next one to come along, and sure enough, after giving away a few they become less and less frequent, and soon the universe stops providing altogether. We need to tackle opportunities head on with energy, enthusiasm, action and drive! We need to honour our calling.
Try to imagine a world where more people are doing what they really enjoy and what they genuinely want to do. Think about the feelings of satisfaction and pride, and the passion and energy that we feel when we are achieving. Not only will you lead a more fulfilled life, but those around you will benefit from it too.
Let’s rise to the challenge! The challenge is for each and every one of us to embrace the opportunities presented to us for the sake of ourselves and those around us, who will benefit from us being focussed, successful and playing to our strengths. Follow your calling and be true to yourself and others in everything that you can.
