By all outside appearances, Olivia seemed to be living a successful life. She gave her best and the results showed as she rose through the ranks in the large corporate world.
Olivia had this inexplicable gnawing feeling that where she was and what she was doing just wasn’t lighting her fire. It was definitely a good job. And she had lots of responsibility. She was surrounded by great people and had a wonderful boss. And yet it wasn’t quite “it”. It just wasn’t fulfilling.
Even though she had plenty to do, Olivia was bored. She felt frustration seeping in. It was a mystery to her why she felt so stifled. Day by day, she more and more resigned.
Olivia didn’t know what she wanted, but she definitely knew what she didn’t want, and it was everything she was doing in this job.
Are you living your life purpose?
Here’s how you know you are:
- When you’re living your life purpose, you’re leaping out of bed every morning to go do it. You have that inner glow, a sense of, “THIS is what I’m here for.” There is no running out of energy.
- You are feel excitement, joy and passion about your life and your work. You’re sharing your gifts, that which is uniquely you, and have you’re contributing to others. You’re making a difference. And you have an inner sense of calm and fulfillment.
- There’s very little that can upset you when you’re in this space of clarity and purpose. Nothing can get you off track.
Olivia took some time to think about what would have her leap out of bed in the morning. She’d stopped dreaming long ago and had almost forgotten how to do it. She cast her mind back to a time in her life when she did, and suddenly she remembered that as a kid, she’s has always loved balloons.
She remembered all the birthday parties where there were lots of colorful balloons. And there would occasionally be a clown who would come and make animals and flowers out of them. Balloons brought joy and laughter to everyone.
Her heart started beating with excitement at the prospect of spreading that kind of happiness. Perhaps she could do something with this as a business.
Olivia looked into and discovered that it actually wasn’t all that difficult. At first she started it part-time while still working at her other job. She was working an amazing number of hours, but she was excited and found tons of energy for both.
She ABSOLUTELY loved it! Very quickly, her business grew enough so that she could leave her other job once and for all and go full on into her balloon business.
Olivia was amazed at how wonderful her life was. She was truly now living her life purpose.
