Doing what you ask? Simple, just making a fundamental change in your life, one that you think about a lot, one that excites you, but one you just can’t quite reach out for.
To step forward on any journey, firstly you need to know where you are going and secondly feel certain it’s the right thing for you. Here is where the problem lies. You might know the where, but can you trust yourself in knowing it’s right? Trusting yourself implicitly comes from knowing yourself implicitly and this means connecting with your inner self.
So how do we find this inner self and our purpose? Why do we even need to know? That’s simple, when we are on our path, life becomes easier, what we do, we enjoy. For example our work can be our passion and no longer is work.
In my work as a life coach and I’m not alone here, we all need to go within to start the real journey. It is only by doing this that we can find our own breath-taking views of the world. Until then we might as well be driving in the dark, with no headlights, no streetlights and our sunglasses on!
It isn’t always straightforward however, meandering through childhood guided by parents, teachers, friends, who on their own path, brought you their beliefs. We are taught, advised and sometimes pushed along paths that are not of our choosing and with the best intentions of others, these paths may not be right for us. Often the path we are walking has very little to do with our inner needs and desires. It can be everything to do with what those around us have told us is best for us. It is here where we can end up feeling stuck and sadly even disappointed with life.
Finding our true self becomes a journey of untangling those beliefs placed upon us and finding our own truths and what resonates for us individually. Many beliefs actually limit our progress and stand in the way of happiness and what we truly desire. Finding yourself requires open curiosity, to understand those beliefs, identify their purpose and if they are holding you back in some way then step into ‘how’ to transform them into working for you positively.
The journey to yourself isn’t always easy and you may hit internal resistance along the way! The biggest battle as they say is with yourself! This is a good sign and usually means you are heading in the right direction! For this reason, it is very helpful to have gentle support along the way, as your mind can work powerfully against you as much as it can work for you.
This work is important, especially when facing those internal challenges. When you meet your raw and true inner self is the moment where you can connect with your true purpose and passion. This is you, those passions are yours, no one else’s!
It is in this magnificent moment, where you can look out at the world from your unique perspective and can be stunned by the spectacular views before you.
