And here it is…
“What do you do?”
Of course the more important question is “Who Are You?”
And of course the answer is “You are a child of God/The Universe/Divine Intelligence/Random Chance/insert whatever word or phrase you like having a human experience, seeing how much fun and/or trouble you can stir up before you go back to your Source.”
But while you’re here, try “What do you do?” for a while.
Well, do you know?
Of course the answer changes. It may be the right time to say “I teach, or I install carpeting, or run a house and raise kids, etc.”
And it may be the right time to say “I have no freakin’ idea what I do, but I know I’m on the verge of figuring it out.”
Someone I respect a great deal asked me that question out of the blue.
I thought about it for 2 or 3 seconds and came up with my own answer…
I help people make major life changes.
And it’s the truth. I look back on where I’ve been the most effective – and it’s with people who are on the cusp of moving into a new and better life situation.
Which is not to say I don’t help people make smaller ones…a few mid course corrections. I’m happy to be that spark.
But jumping deeply and meaningfully into people’s lives….being the guide that leads them back to their best angels, which they learn to trust, and follow…that’s what I do.
It lots of fun, and can be a bit frustrating. Finding the folks who make a real commit to change, and the discomfort that comes along with it…it’s an exercise in patience.
Look, I have respect for everyone, including those who aren’t ready yet, and for those who don’t even know there’s more. We’re all worthy of respect and love.
But the fraction of those who ask for more, then stand ready to receive, and allow the changes to change them…who play along with the Universe’s plan (or God’s if you prefer)…
That’s who calls out to me.
Arrogance? Maybe. But I redesigned my life. I went from poor, spiritually sick and needy to wealthy, filled with light and strong enough to give…and receive.
And I helped redesign someone else’s life – making her a millionaire in the process.
And I redesigned another’s, helping her find the self-respect to attract beautiful people of all ages and genders into her experience.
And another, taking her from near bankruptcy with a lawsuit hanging over her head, to legally free and clear and a wildly profitable business.
I could keep going, but to those who sense the reality of this, it’s not necessary. And those who don’t see it, more is just piling on.
So I ask you now – and it’s a good question to ponder at the start of a new year (as if you needed an excuse to live your life by design instead of default)…
What Do You Do?
If it’s something that feels good, keep doing it.
And let the world see you doing it. Be a role model of living with Divine spark and purpose.
Your On Purpose Pal,
If you are in the neighborhood of making a commitment to something bigger, this is the invitation to do more. THE END GAME is what I use to help those who are ready to live strong, rich and free. If that’s not you (yet) enjoy the inspiration…but don’t check out THE END GAME.
