We spend most of our lives trying to identify our purpose. We try a few things and take on new responsibilities that have nothing to do with our innate desire to make an impact on the world. The result is time lost that we cannot get back.
If your desire is to reach others, tell your story and impact the world using all that you have learned throughout your life – then you are a speaker.
If you wake up in the morning and all you can think about is painting – then you are an artist.
The very thing that gets you excited and passionate is what the world needs you to share.
Many times, the struggle with reaching your full potential is fear of rejection. What you must realize is that when you have been given a gift so unique, a gift that cannot be duplicated, you don’t need to be validated by someone else or receive recognition to do it. Just do it and allow the world to catch up later.
Your purpose is a mix of who you are and who you will ultimately become; but only IF you choose to reach beyond FEAR and trust that you were created to make an impact. Do this not only because you think you can, but because if you don’t, you will always wonder “what if”.
