Is your heart yearning to express your potential, but doubt stops you from truly taking action?
You’re not alone.
These are the beginning signs that you’re ready to live a purpose driven life. You’re ready to follow your passion and share your gifts.
But it isn’t always easy.
You’re not sure if you’re good enough.
You don’t know where to start.
And you’re scared out of your mind.
But don’t worry, because you’re on the right track. Here are 8 signs that you’re ready to start.
You’re done with the old way of doing things. You’re ready to step it up.
You may have once loved your life, but something has changed. You’ve changed. You’re ready for something new.
You’re ready to live a purpose driven life.
You may not know what that looks like yet, but you’re ready. You can feel it deep down.
You’re so sick of being stuck that you’re determined to move forward.
I call this ruthless determination. It happened to me when I had been feeling called to do something bigger.
I waited for several years, because I doubted myself. One day, I woke up and I just started. I didn’t care about failing, because I was going to take action one way or another.
I wanted to see what would happen.
And I did make plenty of mistakes, but you know what? I learned and moved forward. Today, I get paid to do what I love.
Deep down just reading these words feels right.
There may still be confusion. You may not know where to start, but it feels right in your heart.
You have the yearning to do something greater, to fulfill your potential, and to live a purpose driven life.
You are ready.
And just reading you are ready feels good, doesn’t it?
You have the right expectations.
You know it’s not going to be easy to live a purpose driven life, but you’re ready anyway.
You’re done with leading a life of comfort and security, which are illusions anyway. You’re ready to take action and follow your passion.
You’re ready to listen to your heart.
When you have the right expectations, you will succeed.
You know it’s going to be tough, but that doesn’t matter, because you will keep going.
Yes, fear is another sign that you’re ready to follow your purpose.
You may never be fearless. Fear may always be with you, because you’re human. But that’s fine. Fear doesn’t have to stop you.
Fear is a sign that you’re exploring new territory. You’re diving into uncertainty, which is another word for possibility.
It’s a sign that you are on the right path.
If you aren’t a little bit uncomfortable, you are not pushing your boundaries enough.
6. Life Change
Your life is changing.
Friends are dropping away. You may lose your job. Change in your life is always pushing you to grow, so ask yourself what it is trying to tell you.
It may seem bad now, but it won’t be if you go with the flow.
We need change to keep evolving and to keep life interesting. Be grateful for it and do your best, because that’s all you can do.
Don’t cling to the old. Embrace the new, because you’re ready to do this.
7. Personal Change
You may also notice that you’re changing on the inside.
You’re noticing your habitual patterns and conditioning. Maybe you feel the urge to grow personally. You feel the urge to dive into spiritual books or material.
It feels like you’re ready to find the answer.
But beware of relying too much on outside information. Listen to your heart when you decide what information you should listen to.
You are changing. It will be scary, but it will also be exciting.
Last, but not least, you feel the urge to take action.
Your doubts may be keeping you stuck, but something inside of you keeps nudging you to move forward.
Listen to that inner voice. Listen to your heart.
Let your mind go crazy. It’s the panic attack of the mind. The mind will always worry, but your heart is always there ready to guide you.
So right now, listen to your inner wisdom.
What is it telling you?
What do you need to do next, if anything?
You’re ready to take action, and deep down you know that.
