Why are you here?
I'm not talking about why you are here reading this, or why you are where you are in longitude/latitude of space/time.
Why are you here in this body? Why are you here on this Earth, at the perfect?
Do you know there's never been such an abundance of opportunity for anyone who is willing to serve rather than just gain? If so, I invite you to stop for a moment and feel that in your heart before continuing to read.
Do you know also know that the greats were great not because they were more special, but because they took action in spite of fear?
The purpose of life we desire, the passion, the answer to the first question, "Why are you here?" is found when you can step into uncertainty, step into fear, and do what it is you REALLY want to do, and not what sort-of calls to your heart.
Now I don't believe people when they say, "I don't know what I want to do with my life…" And when I am told this I ask people two questions:
1.) Imagine it's one year from now, what would have had to have happened for this year to be the most wildly fulfilling and or successful year ever? (touch your heart when you have an answer).
2.) Second, what would you do if you had no limits, if you simply knew you couldn't fail, if you had the resources, the time, and whatever else the mind way comes up with…? (I invite you to touch your heart again and feel the answer you came up with).
All of us on some level know the answer to these questions. And if it were me and I couldn't find those answers right now, I wouldn't move from where I was today until I figured out the answers and wrote them down, at least malleable answers that could give me a starting place….
So what prevents us from knowing the answer, to pursuing the journey; fear.
It's not a lack of action, because even in-action becomes action after a period of time, even not-doing becomes our doing at a certain point. This is because we are always choosing, it's just that we're either choosing to inspire ourselves or expire ourselves, in everything…. our career, our food, our daily schedule, our goals, our commitments, our time management….
Each of those and so much more are either bringing us closer to the meaning of life, or further away…. they are either aligned with our dreams, or counter-productive to the realization of them….
So there are three final questions…. What is it you want to remember about your life, your experience, yourself? How can you get there? When will you begin?Jack Ducey
