You Have a Message to Share
You want to make an impact. No, you must make and impact.
Even when you were a little kid, you knew that you were meant for something great. You knew you had something to say to the world that only you could say.
Then life got in the way. It does for all of us.
Here’s the thing. You are not alone. Every single one of us has a unique and powerful perspective that we bring to the world.
But you and I–all of us–spend our life time muting that perspective.
We sand our “rough edges” and at the same time, blunt our originality.
Discounting your personal value and the essence of your perspective
is the supreme mistake of your life.
What is the antidote?
I wish it were easy. It isn’t.
It takes work to remember who you are, embrace who you are, and deliver yourself unreservedly to the world.
Here’s the truth:
You won’t fit in.
They won’t understand you (or the choices you make).
You will probably feel isolated at times.
This is also truth:
You must persevere.
They will eventually respect you (and the choices you’ve made)
You are not alone. You are unique
The Soulpreneur’s Mission
Whether you realize it or not, you are a soulpreneur. Even if you’re not in business for yourself, you are crafting the life you were meant to lead.
This requires you to turn your back on convention. You have to face your fears and realize that you are more than your fears. You have to forge your own path and make a way.
You must recognize that the obstacles that you face are merely the cauldrons in which the power of the heat of your adversity is held–the crucible of the strength that lies within you.
The 3 Questions
As a soulpreneur, you must ask three vital questions. The true answers lie only within the fire of the depths of your own soul!
1. Who do I serve?
2. How do I serve?
3. How do I want to be paid?
How do those sit with you? Does the third question rub you the wrong way? Good.
Then you have found that you have a spiritual hang-up–yes, that’s the official term–with valuing your gifts.
How do I know? I once faced the same squirm-in-my-seat sort of discomfort with every part of that third question.
I was damn good at the serving part. Not so much when it came to getting paid. Especially when it came to me deciding how I wanted to be paid!
You see, as soon as I was ten years old and my brother and I started our first paper route, a boss told us how we were going to be paid. “$XX per paper,” he said.
Then, at sixteen, I got a “real” job and the boss said, “$XX per hour.”
Wow, I’m making great money! I thought.
I never questioned how I wanted to be paid. Imagine if I had taken even an hour at the age of sixteen and really considered how I wanted to be paid.
I could have chosen to be paid in any number of ways.
You can too. It’s not too late. You can choose.
The highest rates of pay are created by a conscious decision to create a better path for energy–in the form of money–to flow to you. Tweet It!
If you get this principle, it will transform your life (and your financial situation). I promise.
Now Over to You
I would love to hear your answers to these 3 powerful questions.
Since you’re reading this, I have a feeling you’ve given one, or maybe even two, of them a lot of thought.
Which one have you not given much consideration? What obstacles have you faced when you answered these questions?
How did you overcome those obstacles? Please join in the conversation in the comments below.
