We choose our lives – like it or not.
You’ll “like it” once you know the reason.
It means you always have choice.
As much choice as you want.
Can you have a job you love? YES. How?
By saying, “YES!”
You only need to start small to get big results.
One step at a time; no need to turn your life upside down. (plenty of time for that :- )
Side note: The fun part is the journey to your goal, not necessarily the end result.
“Every artist was first an amateur.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
One Easy Way to Discover Your Hidden Talents & Make Your Life Meaningful
Introduce things you love into your life today, and create a pathway to a job you love. Say these two sentences to yourself – slowly, consciously and out loud for several days:
“I already know what it is I love to do and I have the freedom to do it TODAY!”
“I’m so grateful to be doing what I love – it’s exciting to wake up every day enthusiastic about my day ahead.”
(or you can create your own, play with the words so that you get a sense of excitement)
I know this sounds wacky but this is powerful because it is an intention.
Be alert to new opportunities when they appear – because they will. It’s your job to act on them.
Become a “Yes Man or Woman”, remember the movie YES MAN and how Jim Carrey’s character radically turned his life around when he stopped saying no and started saying yes?
Say, “YES” to fun and new experiences. It’s your right to do so.
You’ll soon know what you want to do and be doing something you love.

What’s a sundial in the shade?” ~~Benjamin Franklin
How This Person Discovered Their Passion in Only a Few Days
Someone I know, let’s call her Tracy, recently faced this situation.
Tracy had an uncomfortable ailment. Her symptoms strongly indicated she needed to find and do something she loves in her life.
I suggested two things: 1. Contemplate the message she’s getting from her body and 2. Introduce something new and fun to her life. S
he said the problem was she didn’t know what her talents are or what she loves to do. She’s not alone in this dilemma.
Well, it was Tracy’s birthday that same week and her family just happened to give her a fancy new camera.
Photography had long been one of Tracy’s passions but she’d pushed it so far into the background she’d forgotten about it.
She contacted me about her fabulous gift and to say she’d had the idea to create a photography blog – to “take a photograph a day of something simple that brings me joy”.
Now we’re moving into magic.
Tracy’s enthusiasm is a great sign this new venture is exactly what the “doctor” ordered. (no doctors or medicine here of course!)
She’s off on a thrilling new adventure. She’s never had a blog before – if you have a blog you’ll know the fun she’ll have learning about blogging and sharing her beautiful photographs with the world.
It can be that quick. If Tracy continues focusing on fun activities in her life, she will move into her dream job… and importantly have fun along the way.
The talent you discover today may not be your biggest – it is only one of many to come.
You’ve started step one — that’s vital. You’ll discover other talents. I hope you’re ready for the fabulous life awaiting you. Cos it’s huge!!!
Say those two sentences and expect magic: it’s that easy!
