Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity. ? Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
This I know to be true:
- Every experience, as with our own birth, has a lifecycle
- If we accept and understand the above, we understand that challenges are just a part of that lifecycle…IT TOO SHALL PASS
- You have a unique set of gifts, talents, and abilities that can change lives
- Fear is the biggest obstacle in the way of stepping into your purpose
- You matter, even if you don’t believe it yet
- The sooner you step into your purpose and embrace your fear, (frankly our fears get no love so they act out) the sooner you experience unlimited joy
Ever since I was a kid, I have been aware that I am here to do something simple yet important. I had my first memory about seeing a man riding a house outside our window when I was just about two years old. It scared the crap out of me and I have been paying attention to my experiences ever since. When I meet and see people, I can see and feel their greatness; I almost always get excited and find ways to motivate them and get them pumped about their lives.The question is, Are you okay with having a simple purpose?

What I have discovered, is that most of us expect our purpose to be grand —a monumental thought or gesture that forever etches our names in history—but it’s not always that fancy. The question is, Are you okay with having a simple purpose? Your purpose may be to make people laugh, to be a listening ear to a friend in pain, to inspire others with your words, to record history, to express love through dance, to document stories through photography, to solve data equations because you see patterns and can identify better ways for people to live and do things, to create beauty out of fabric, metals, or even paper—or maybe anal retentiveness is your gift to the world to help bring order and peace to the lives of those who need it most.
The point is, no matter how simple your “thing” is, understand it, accept it, and know that you matter. Because there is someone, or people, on this God-given earth who can only respond to you. Not responding to your purpose is a dis-service to your soul and to those that need you. Letting fear stand in the way of living purposely is trivial. As Paulo Coelho said in the Alchemist, The fear of suffering is actually worse than the fear you are running away from. Embrace your fears and accept your purpose, no matter how simple it may seem.
To keep your purpose clear, resist getting distracted by this world of “STUFF.” What you are born to do is more important than the “STUFF” we get caught up in. You are more valuable than that. Step into your purpose and accept that you will have triumphs and challenges, which are part of the lifecycle of your story. YOU CAN HANDLE IT! Prepare to do your part so that God, The Universe, Allah, luck, or whatever your call it, can meet you halfway. No more excuses.
NO MORE EXCUSES. LETS DO THIS!
It is time to step FULLY into your purpose because you matter, and others are counting on you and your gifts.
I am ready. Are you ready?
