BUT YOU’RE A GREAT XXXX *insert your fancy 15 yr long career here or 6 year degree*.
YOU CAN’T JUST WALK AWAY FROM ALL THAT!!
If you’re really tempted to leave your job, your existing business or your degree and just DO what you’re passionate about, you need to read this before you do. It just might save you from the next 25 years of drudgery.
I spoke with someone recently who beautifully articulated something I’ve noticed with clients.
🙎🏼She said ‘Once I realised it was just my ego getting in the way, I knew that was ridiculous. I had to make the change and do what I was REALLY passionate about’
THIS is soooo much more common than you know.
Like, ridiculously, stupidly, ALL the time, what is going on for people.
It can be terrifying to walk away from the thing that you’re skilled at. Your ego screams at you to not rock the boat. You know you are guaranteed a pay check when you do what you do right now but it’s not just about getting all that paper.
Let’s be honest, you’re possibly really well known for what you do.
💃 You’ve already GOT that boss reputation.
💃 You’re good at what you do,
💃 Your family think if you continue on that path you’ve got it made
💃 Your friends think you’re living the dream or that you’d be crazy to throw away your degree.
And maybe you would. Maybe they’re all RIGHT. You could have more money or social credit if you did what they think you should 🤷🏼♀️
But guess what?! Living the dream is about what YOU dream of. 👌
More than that… It’s about what you KNOW deep in your soul that you’re called to do.
And if your current career, job, state of living is not what you dream of giving your life to please STOP.
STOP and just take a good hard look at where you are and where you want to be in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years time.
What is it going to take to get there?
Do you have a clear vision of what that life looks like?
What action can you take RIGHT NOW to move you closer to that goal?
Now go DO that thing.
Because 9 times out of 10, if you’re genuinely committed to doing what you love, that passion will shine out of you and there are a million and one ways that your passion can get you the money and status you’re so worried about anyway.
