Maybe you’ve seen inspiring stories of amazing women who are making a difference, healing their communities, starting businesses, and doing work that makes them thrilled to get out of bed in the morning.
Meanwhile, you feel stuck in a job that drains you and gives very little back.
You might feel like you’re missing something.
That you missed the memo somehow.
What do these amazing women know that you don’t?
What do they have that you haven’t got?
How can you be amazing too? (And for you guys out there suffering from these same feelings, read on. This also applies to you.)
The truth is, there’s less difference between you and those women than you might think.
And the good news is, I’m going to tell you those differences right now, so you can start live just like those other women: connected to their passions and purpose and shaping the world around them into the world they want to live in.
So here they are:
Difference #1: Inspiring women know what they want. They know what kind of work fulfills them and what impact they want to make, and knowing that allows them to get started doing it.
If you don’t know what’s going to make you feel that way, you end up in default mode in your life.
You need a job, so you get one.
You need a college major, so you choose one.
All without really getting clear about what is going to be the most authentic path for you.
Difference #2: Inspiring women go after it. It’s not that they’re not afraid, it’s just that they don’t let their fear stop them because the vision of what they’re after is greater than their fear.
Difference #3: Inspiring women ask for help. They don’t try to do everything on their own. They understand that admitting that they need help is not a weakness, but an opportunity to collaborate, learn, and grow.
What You Need To Do
You are just as smart and talented as these women, and the differences are surmountable. Really, you are one of these women already, you just haven’t gotten started yet.
Doing the soul searching necessary to really know what you want, and what kind of life would feel made for you is something you can do.
There are things that you feel passionate about, that you are great at, and that you want to accomplish, even if you don’t know what right now.
Whether trying to understand what this new life would look like makes you draw a complete blank, or if you feel overwhelmed by possibilities, it doesn’t matter.
Either way what you need is clarity.
Once you know what it is, going after it will be less of an issue.
You won’t feel the pull of uncertainty holding you back like the gravity of some enormous planet.
You’ll still be afraid – of success, of failure, of what they will say, but the vision of what you can be will be so attractive, you’ll be able to get through it.
Remembering you don’t have to do all this on your own, that you don’t have to be perfect, and that there’s everything to be gained by connecting is important.
Connecting with others is your natural state – a state of love rather than fear.
So that’s it: the memo you missed. Let me know if you have any questions. 😉
