This week I was given a sign. Lol I mean that in the most literal sense. This message was on the back of a street sign and I found it when I was on my way to a lunch meetup at one of my favourite restaurants, The Real Jerk.
“All we have is today.”
It really made me think, especially when it came to making a scary but exciting decision after when I got home that night. I thought, if all I have is today and I choose the “safe route” over the “risky route”, what will happen? And my answer was, wow, I could totally miss this amazing beautiful opportunity right here in front of me. So. I made the decision that had the most risk, fear, vulnerability and “I don’t know”… and PASSION attached to it.
It took me some processing to take action on my decision. I even shed some tears because the fear was that intense. I had to sit with my inner little girl and let her know it would be all right. I sent a big long email to one of my mentors, who encouraged me to take the action that felt the most aligned with me. And that’s exactly what I did.
And guess what happened! I got the results I really really wanted.
The thing is, that might not have happened but it was still important for me to take the risk and take action fuelled by passion. I could feel the calling welling up in my body. Goosebumps, tingles, warmth.
What are your body’s “signature signs”? What does your body do when you’re about to make a decision that your spirit knows is good for you? It’s really important to know what those signs are, so do some field research. Any time you feel big sensations in your body, notice why it’s happening. Get to know how your body tells you something is in alignment with you.
When you feel your body respond with your “signature signs” when you’re thinking of a decision you could make, TAKE ACTION ON IT RIGHT AWAY!
For entrepreneurs and wayshowers, risk-taking and passion are crucial and most powerful when connected to each other. If we don’t take risks, especially now of all times, when things have sped up and the higher your frequency, the messier playing it “safe” can get. Did you know that? Abraham-Hicks has said it’s as if you’re on a merry-go-round and you get it going really fast. It hurts a lot more when you fall off than if you kept it going slowly, right?
Well, business and spiritual growth are like that too. You know how I was talking about the Spiritpreneur Sweet Spot a few weeks ago? This is a piece of it. And you know what 2 of the magical ingredients are?
Yep. RISK and PASSION – together.
What if you just make risk part of your #sacredplayground? What if you bring all of your passion for your spiritual purpose, or quest for your purpose, onto that playground? How would you play then?
I invite you to spend your next 24 hours living as if all we have is today. Really embrace it and see what you feel called to do in life and business. I hope you’ll take the risk to play with passion. It could get messy either way – you might as well have fun, feel and enjoy your passions, and stop leaving opportunities behind.
