Looking inside and not seeing anything

“Dan said in a podcast that you need to look inside.  I’m not sure what this means. I was told yesterday that I will not have a job in 89 days. So I have 48 days times two to find the work I love. How do I look inside and what am I looking for?”

Wow – looking inside and not seeing anything!  That’s scary.  Having a little life experience makes it much easier to see something meaningful.  Start with:

  1. Your Skills & Abilities – what is it that you do well
  2. Your Personality Traits – are you outgoing, introverted, good with ideas, etc.
  3. Your Passions – what makes you come alive, what makes your heart sing?

From these you should see a pattern emerge.  Then move through these questions:

  • What is my calling or purpose? Does it align with my passion?
  • Do I have the skills to turn this into meaningful work?
  • Can I do this with excellence and be the best?
  • Why am I so eager to do this?  What is my motive?
  • How can I create income doing this?  Passion and ability are not enough – there must be an economic model
  • When can I begin?
  • If I have a plan, what’s stopping me from starting now?

Trust me, no one is an empty container.  We all have talents, experience, passions and dreams.  I know life can sometimes make us numb to what is there or circumstances can make us think we are trapped.  But it’s never to late to start living the life you were meant to live.  Today looks like a good day to draw that line in the sand, create a plan, and do what you were born to do.
