How do I become one of those many people that one aspires to be? How do I be that one person that people say to themselves, “Yeah, you did something right?” I really am not a recognition seeking person however I do know if I live my best life I will impact a lot of people. I want to be a force for good!!!!
I was listening to Ed Mylett and he was talking about getting out of your comfort zone and told a story of him being thrown into the deep end of the pool when he couldn’t swim at age 9. He equated it to going after your dreams. Sometimes you have to be thrown into the deep end of the pool to get out of your comfort zone.
He also talked about how if you got rid of all the time in your life that you were sleeping, working, and taking care of yourself and kids, you really only have 8 years of your life that can be used for what you want. What you really want? Why do so many people waste so much of their down time doing very little?
We are taught from a very early age to squash our passion and to become mediocre. When we continue to dampen the fire that God ignites to our soul a little part of us continues to die. I don’t want recognition. I do want to move people to their passion for good. I want this little splash to be like a ripple effect like no other. Igniting in others their gifts to live by the compass and go after their dreams.
“I do want to move people to their passion for good. I want this little splash to be like a ripple effect like no other. Igniting in others their gifts to live by the compass and go after their dreams.” AND SO IT IS!
Live in your truth and passion and you will inspire others.
Great share, Heather! You are on the right track, creating those positive ripple effects!
Great share regarding the comfort zone. Love the analogy of being thrown in the deep end of the pool to going after one’s dream.
Lead by example living your passion and helping people and you’ll find recognition will happen naturally – enjoy it!
Heather, I wasn’t thrown into the pool, I jumped in, not knowing how to swim at age five. It seemed as if I was suspended in the water until my father rescued me. Although it made me somewhat fearful then and even now, I was determined to learn how. Challenges do take you out of your comfort zone, but once done so, they are truly rewarding.
Hi Heather. This is so inspirational. “When we continue to dampen the fire that God ignites to our soul a little part of us continues to die.” Great point for us to reflect, where am I thinking, living and playing small. Thank you for your reflections 💞
Inspirational, Heather, inspirational! 🙂
” I want this little splash to be like a ripple effect like no other.” You already are, Heather, just by being the best Heather you can be – the pebble never sees the ripples.
