“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela
Have you ever had the feeling that there is just “something more” – more possibilities – more things you are meant to experience and accomplish? It’s not that you’re not grateful for every single thing that you do have, it’s just that deep down, you know “this can’t be it”. There’s just got to be something more out there for you.
Well, if you have ever felt that way, then you understand exactly how I felt several years ago. Although I couldn’t really explain it clearly, something just felt “off”.
I now realize though that I am not the only one who has had this feeling that there is “something more”. There are so many different causes for this feeling depending on our particular situation – sometimes it stems from feeling like we’re not living up to our potential; or maybe we realize our primary relationship isn’t really working; or maybe we’ve been running through life year after year overextending ourselves and it has taken it’s toll; or maybe we continue to struggle with the same bad habits or financial issues; or maybe it’s something more subtle – perhaps we aren’t listening to that voice deep inside that urges us to believe in ourselves and go after those things we truly desire.
Whatever the cause may be, that feeling that something is not right just gnaws at us day after day. And, what I finally realized, is that we’ve got to do something about it. We can’t just let it linger and think that somehow it’s going to magically disappear.
We’ve got to figure out what’s working; admit to ourselves what’s not; and then most importantly make the necessary changes.
Making changes may be the last thing we want to do – especially if we have found a way to tolerate whatever is not working. But, what I have also realized is that we’re not meant to “tolerate” life – we’re supposed to enjoy it. I mean really, really enjoy it and also enjoy all of the people, experiences and possibilities that are out there.
Are You Ready? It’s Time to Go.
And, since it’s a new year and we all have a nice new slate of 365 days, I would love for you to join me and find the way to your own “something more”. I know I am always asking you to join me on challenges and hopefully you’re ready and willing since we also have committed to Living Today Better than Yesterday.
Doing these challenges is one of the best ways to ensure that we are actually getting more and more of the things we want for our life, growing and really living today better than we did yesterday. It’s like that great quote by Leo Tolstoy reminds us -
“Each person’s task in life is to become an increasingly better person.”
So, for 2013, I think a great thing for us all to do is find our way to our “something more”. Don’t you just feel like it’s time?
