Passion is Knocking at the Door, Purpose is Ringing Your Bell!... Do Yourself a Favor, Open the Door

Updated: Sep 24, 2021

Have you ever felt that you are in a place, that although it’s good, and you are doing okay, you just KNOW it’s not where you’re supposed to be? Not what you were designed for? It’s not your destiny?

Frustrating isn’t it? And all the while the clock is ticking, time is passing, you’re getting older, and STILL you have that feeling.

So, what are you going to do about it? Surely you can figure it out right? You are smart, and you have got a good handle on your life, so why can’t you just figure out what you are purposed to do? Why is it that although you can see clearly what you are NOT supposed to be doing, you have no idea what you ARE destined to do, what The Creator put you here to do?

What if there were a simpler, more direct way of knowing what you should be doing with your life that required nothing more than for you to pay attention to just TWO things as you go about your daily routine?

These are those two things...


Thinking isn’t the answer. If it was, you would have found the solution a long time ago. So, avoid spending your time trying to come up with the answer. Just pay attention to what and who shows up in your life, everyone and everything is put in your path for a reason.

The longer you pay attention the more clarity you gain. Well, this is because it has been there all along. The whispers, the feelings, are God trying to tell you, but you must be still and listen. It has been happening for as long as you can remember right?

You’ve either been setting it aside or dismissing it, because you cannot see how it can be done, how it can make enough money, or maybe you do not have the experience for it, and whatever excuse you have told yourself.

For example:

● When you’re on social media, what stories are you drawn to? What do you read the most?

● What topic gets you fired up or upsets you?

● What genre of books do you like to read?

● When you meet people, either in person or over the internet, what topics of conversation do you find the most engaging?

● What is something that you’re good at and enjoy doing?

If you pay attention, you’ll see a pattern emerge about what and who you resonate with. You’ll soon identify what it is that draws your attention. You’ll notice what intrigues, fascinates, or inspires you.

Start taking notes about what continues to show up in your life that you can relate to, or what you keep coming back to.

These same things have been showing up for years. They have been knocking on your door for a LONG time!

Make a list of all the topics that show up in your life on a regular basis. Put the most compelling at the top. These are the ones that are knocking at your door AND ringing your bell.

Maybe it’s TIME - time to let them in.

Which brings us to….


Next, seek clarity. How do you feel about those topics that show up with regularity?

Ask yourself these questions:

Will this topic help me live in alignment with my purpose?

Who or what does the topic relate to?

How long has it been calling me? (Much longer than you thought, right?)

If I put my energy into THAT, how would that make me feel?

What action can I take RIGHT NOW that would move me closer to that feeling? DO IT! ...and do it immediately. Make that call, write that email, join a group of like-minded people. Take a step forward, and it will move a step closer to you.

What about the people you meet, engage with, or listen to?

● Notice how you feel about your connection with them. If possible, tell them how you feel about that interaction. Ask if you can talk further.

● Find out what it is that draws you, intrigues you, or makes listening or engaging with them so compelling. Write it down and see what pattern emerges from your feelings.

Then, ask yourself these questions:

What is it about (Name) that makes me feel good?

What is it about (Name) that inspires me?

Why does it make me feel that way?

What action can I take RIGHT NOW that would move me towards feeling that way all the time? DO IT! ...and do it NOW. Don’t wait. Act immediately on things that make you feel good if you want to live a fulfilling and compelling life.
