Now, I want you to analyze them a bit more. The reason I want you to analyze them a bit more is because you might think you have the idea of doing or being something when in reality is another one.
What’s your essence?
Do you notice there three distinct reasons of what you might like just by liking photography? The same is with everything else we like and do. Which one is your reason? Whatever true reason you find is the essence of what you really like and feel deep within you.
The essence of your personality is what makes you heart jump with joy when you’re doing, or about to do, what you so deeply enjoy. So, try to identify that essence of what you really like and desire without tying it to an occupation, for now.
Once you have the essence of what you like and enjoy, combine it with your dreams and desires you obtained from the visualization of the previous post. Keep in mind that essence of what you like combined with your dreams and desires while we look at what the world needs.
What does the world need?
If thinking about what people all over the world need, don’t focus on that for now. I don’t want you to get overwhelmed, so focus on what you can see right now. Focus on people around you, people in your neighborhood, in your town, in your state, in your country. If you spend much time doing business online, then you might also be able to see what people around the world need help with.
So, what do you see people need and you’re happy to help with? I want to clarify that although you can do many things you should only focus on doing those things that are tied to your essence and dreams. Try again using that filter. Take a look at the world again and tell me, what do see people need and that you can joyfully help with?
Can you help from where you are?
Maybe you could get another job within the same company; a job that’s more in alignment with your essence and dreams. Or if you own a business, you can delegate parts of the business that you dread and focus more on what you do enjoy.
What I want you to see is that sometimes it’s not so much about the job we have as it is about how you feel that affects your perspective and attitude towards it. See Gary Zukav’s answering a question about this in the video below.
Time for an exit plan?
Be careful to not make big changes when you don’t feel good, because you then won’t be able to see the best options and opportunities available to you. Instead, make the big changes from a place of power, and you’re in a place of power only when you feel good.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.” – Bob Dylan
