Living your life's purpose is not something that you have to wait until (have money, a partner, lose weight, fill in the blank), you can start right now!
This takes a willingness to follow your heart and tune out the naysayers. You're most likely going to have to forgo the need for acceptance and approval from friends and loved ones for awhile, or indefinitely. It's ok! You'll show them.
It's a brave thing to follow your joy. It takes courage to break free of society's crab bucket mentality - if I can't have it, then neither can you. You have to be the one that gets away!
There are a lot of things that society has been programmed into believing. These beliefs are not truths. They're designed to keep you in your place.
People that are not aware of their social programming and indoctrination can't see past these limitations. They don't even realize they are limitations because all the conformers share the same views and think the same way. These people are going to continue to drag you down and pull you back in the crab bucket with the rest of them.
Indigos know there's another way. A way out to freedom. We can't help but answer the calling inside of us. No matter how far-fetched it may be, we know that there isn't anything we can't be, do, or have. We are not subject to society's limiting beliefs.
We're hear to soar.
That doesn't mean we don't have fear or nagging thoughts from the ego. The ego will fixate on the how. How will this pay my bills? How will this ever work out? How can I just drop everything and change my whole life?
You are never going to know how. It is beyond you ability to know. Humans are like ants in that way. How is an ant going to cross the street or get around a puddle from their tiny perspective?
The possibilities are endless even though we can't see them or even guess what they are. Stay in the unknown because once you think that it can only happen one way you're sabotaging yourself with limitation.
It's not for you to figure out how. All you need to do is go in the direction that you want to be and the how will show up. It will be worth not knowing!
Stop thinking about making it and instead think about what you enjoy doing.
When you go in the direction of where you want to be, you will find that one thing leads to another and everything has a way of working out. You just need to start going and the path will appear. You have to start somewhere.
Know that the whole universe is conspiring to assist you. Pay attention to subtle cues. Little passing thoughts that come out of no where. Listen to your gut.
Take inspired action. Act on nudging thoughts.
Let your passion propel you. The presence of passion, that warm feeling in your chest, is confirmation that you're on the right path. When you're doing what lights you up there's no turning back. It's better to go too far to live your life's purpose than not go far enough.
Following your bliss is generally unheard of and something that only other lucky people get to do. Be that other person! Be the example. Show them we can all do this. Someone has to go first. We are that someone.
Now it's always going to be smooth sailing. There will be bumps along the way. Don't get discouraged. Don't let them pull you back down inside the crab bucket. Trust yourself to know what's best for you.
Be mindful not to compare your journey to anyone else's. Your means to living your life's purpose is not going to show up in the same way as anyone else's. Be sure not to expect or assume that things can only show up in a certain way!
Oftentimes I have heard people give this answer - that they just fell into it, when asked how they ended up living their life's purpose. It's not something they can teach someone else how to do. They have no idea. Everything just sort of fell into place. They might attribute this to luck or coincidence. Not exactly. Things will fall in your lap as soon as you are ready. That's all it takes. You'll have a chance encounter that could change your life.
What are you waiting for?
There is no better way to earn money than by being yourself and doing what you love. You can't not do what you love and not get money from that. Money can flow into your many different ways. Be open to the possibilities. Have faith.
Just start somewhere:
