"Every man is born into the world to do something unique and something distinctive, and if he or she does not do it, it will never be done."
Benjamin E. Mays
Have you ever found yourself wishing you were doing something else for a living? Maybe a different position, maybe trying a totally different field altogether? Statistics show well over 60% of people do not like their current job (now that's a lot of unhappy people!). So chances are pretty good you have felt that way at one time or another. And it's not a good feeling.
Or perhaps you have occasionally caught yourself daydreaming about living your life in a different manner, in a different fashion. It's only natural that you have considered pursuing a different path every once in a while, maybe charting an alternate course of action. After all, the same old, same old gets, well... it gets old.
"The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Whenever we find ourselves not doing what we want to be doing, it creates conflict within. Serious, heavy duty conflict as a matter of fact. We begin feeling unsettled, troubled, even upset that we are where we are right now. We want to be somewhere else, doing something else, but we're where we are and we feel trapped.
Instead of busting free and chasing our dreams with purpose and passion, we frequently hold back, deathly afraid of pushing the envelope too far. Rather than seeing how far we can go, we regularly stop short. We never really turn ourselves loose; we never really turn ourselves on. As a result, we stay stuck in the same old place, doing the same old thing; absolutely bored to tears.
"The torment of human frustration, whatever its immediate cause, is the knowledge that the self is in prison, its vital force and mangled mind leaking away in lonely, wasteful self-conflict."
Does this sound familiar? If so, it's high time to let your hair down, throw caution to the wind and start doing those things you want to do. That's right; you need to start doing the things that make you happy, the things that fire you up from head to toe. And start doing them right now. Don't worry about what you don't have or what others say you cannot do. Just crank it up, let it rip and discover how far your dreams can take you.
Whatever it is that charges you up and makes you come alive - no matter what it is - THAT is precisely what you need to be doing each day from here on out. The moment you let go and let yourself be the person you were destined to become, your life will never again be the same.
"To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest."
What kind of things have you really wanted to try but have never mustered the courage to do so? Why not give them a whirl and see what happens? And what sort of actions would you dearly love to take but have never marshaled the oomph to just do them? Why not cut loose and capture the magic of the moment at hand?
There's something deep inside of each of us that wants to be unleashed, that needs to be let loose. A special, unique set of talents and gifts that make us who we are - and what we can become. We need to listen to our hearts and pursue life with every ounce of energy, excitement and enthusiasm we can generate chasing our dreams.
We need to go wherever we need to go, do whatever we need to do. That means following our own path, marching to the tune of our own drum. Doing what we were born to do. Then and only then can we make our lives the extraordinary adventure ride they deserve to be.
The Bottom Line: Find those things you want to do, you need to do, you love to do - and then do them.
