For those that know they are Meant for More...
Knowing and believing you have a BIG purpose in life isn't for the faint of heart. And for the most part, it can be downright scary.
It can mean that the nagging feeling to not settle, to face your fears, and to always be uncomfortable never goes away.
It can mean that you are being held to a higher standard in your conduct, in your character, in the way you treat yourself and others and how you show up in the world.
It can mean that people will "throw rocks" at you because they feel intimidated or insecure around you, they don't understand you, or don't agree with you.
It can mean "going at it alone" until you have finally found those that think the same way.
And for some reason, it can mean that you must journey through the "right of passage" of your purpose, which usually is a tragedy, trauma, and overcoming the odds.
How do I know? Because I have been through (and still go through) most of these things on a regular basis, just like I'm sure you do too. It comes with the territory of knowing that you are meant for more than what society deems as "the norm."
It comes with the calling you have on your life to be a leader, to be an influencer, and helping others.
But here's the best part...ALL of it is happening FOR you! It is happening to make you stronger, it is happening to give you insights, strategies, and ways to help others. If you can walk into the hard times of your life or look back at the painful things you went through and intentionally search for the lessons, you will be able to use them in a powerful way within your life's purpose.
When you can be in the middle of a hard season, and look for the gifts in the resistance - look for what will make you (and those you can help) stronger - that is where the good stuff lies. That is when you become grateful for the hard times. That is when you know there is something good on the other side. That is when you can "count it all joy" and truly know - at a soul level - that it is ALL being worked out for your good.
With that being said, I am excited to share the gifts I have received through the resistance in my life, not only with this blog and my coaching, but with my new Podcast! It's called "Meant for More."
It is all about how to create a business and life that you love by aligning with your life’s purpose, unapologetically owning your God-given gifts, building a tribe, letting go of limiting beliefs, being brave in spite of fear, and encouraging others to do the same.
If you are tired of feeling stuck, if you are ready to stand up, stand out, get focused and clear, get into action and use your influence to help others, then you are in the right place. We are “the crazy ones” who challenge the status quo, think differently, lead in love, believe we are all here for a reason, and know that our light is meant to shine bright, so that, by our example, others can do the same. We believe that together, we can make the world a better and brighter place. Welcome home.
It launches August 1st, so if you are reading this before then, stay tuned! And if you are reading this after, be sure to find it on iTunes or follow the link below to listen in and be inspired on your own journey of being #MeantForMore
