You know those times when you get a sign.
As soon as you see it, you have an important realization about your life. You tune into a message you’re meant to understand.
If you’ve been around here at the Possibility of Today, you’ve probably heard me talk about the sign that led me to quitting my job as an attorney and taking a leap of faith to create the life and career I really wanted.
It was one of the scariest and best decisions I ever made.
But, deep down I knew it was the right thing to do. I was following my truth and that was better than pretending the status quo was okay just to play it safe.
After that experience, I also realized two important things:
(1) When there is something we feel in our heart we’re meant to do, and we’ve done a gut check to make sure it’s also aligned with our purpose, our truth, and our values…we’ve got to go for it.
(2) We’re meant to continually build up our courage and strengthen our faith so we can take the chances that are right for us.
It’s how we live fully, meaningfully, and grow in all the ways we’re meant to.
And, here's the deal...
Today, there are chances you’re meant to take, experiences you’re meant to have, and ideas you’re meant to bring to life.
But, in order to pursue many of these opportunities means you’re probably going to be a little bit out of your comfort zone. You might even have some doubts and fears that come up when it’s time to take certain steps forward.
That’s not only okay, it’s to be expected.
Because when we’re following our truth and taking the right chances, it’s common to have doubts and fears. It’s also common to be out of your comfort zone.
In many ways, it’s kind of the point because ultimately we’re meant to chip away at that discomfort. Each doubt and fear we overcome is another stepping stone that builds our confidence and helps us understand on an even deeper level more about who we really are and what’s truly possible.
And, when you follow your truth and take important steps forward, your whole world opens up. You’re in the flow. More and more things shift and fall into place because you’re living life fully the way it was meant to be lived.
For many of us, the courage to take chances and some of these steps forward doesn’t always come easily or automatically. It’s something we’re meant to practice, strengthen and get better and better at doing.
Here are 3 practices to integrate into your days to continually take courageous steps forward and follow your truth.
