Some are lucky enough to know exactly what it is they are gifted at and have turned it into a career that they find fulfilling. On the other hand, you have people who are just going through the motions and doing what they do because it pays the bills. In the process of going through the motions there is a lot of bitching and moaning (to put it bluntly) about not being happy and wishing that they were doing A, B or C or that it is too late for them to change their direction in life and so on and so forth.
You will always hear people talking about doing what you love and so on but that it is easier said than done. One question that is not so easy to answer is; ‘what is it that you love to do, what is your passion?’ I’m at a point where I am trying to figure out if what I am doing or thinking of doing is ‘me’?
I have gotten caught up in situations where I have been trying all sorts or thinking about trying all sorts and in the process either spreading myself thin or getting lost in my thoughts. The end result of all of this going on has been, doing something that isn’t the best because it hasn’t had my undivided attention or doing nothing at all as I have gotten lost in my thoughts, confusing myself and ending up not knowing where to or what to start.
Over the last few weeks when I have been out on a run or working out at the gym, instead of listening to music, I have been working my through The Potter’s Touch podcast and T. D. Jakes has come to the rescue. One (actually a couple of) episode, Transformational Instinct (video below) has really gotten me thinking about and looking at my life and trying to figure out what is at my core. Through the series, Bishop Jakes talks about figuring out what is at your core and putting your efforts into those areas. I haven’t figured out exactly what is at my core but I am in the process of doing just that. In the process of finding my purpose, I am slowly getting rid of things that I was doing that I have realised aren’t really ‘me’.
If you see a few changes on this site, my social profiles or them disappearing altogether, don’t be surprised, I make come to realisations that see me taking paths different to the ones I have followed so far.
If you are at a point in your life where you are trying to figure out ‘you’, I’d encourage you to watch Transformational Instinct. If you want to delve further into discovering your greatness I would recommend you get a copy of T. D. Jakes’ book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive. You may get something out of it that will help you find the answers to the questions you are asking yourself and discovering the true you.
