Choose To Do Work That Is In Alignment With Who You Are

So, I was brought up to be a professional…

My parents had been brought up mostly in a village in Africa and they had been granted opportunities to leave the country and come over to the UK and so though they came from families of entrepreneurs and business owners, they decided that they wanted better for their kids.

‘Better’ meant getting an education and becoming a professional so that you can make money, be respected and never struggle.

Unfortunately, that did not agree with me.  It was a noble desire, though!

But I wanted to sing – That was shut down except as a hobby…

I wanted to write – That too seemed too uncertain and again, only to be used as a hobby…

I wanted to talk – And yes, that too was not something to make money at, that did not happen to the likes of us.  That was something to do in your spare time after giving all of your energy to a career that was okay but not all that inspiring.

I loved Maths – But again, that just seemed to lead to being a teacher or engineer and my parents were not so sure that there was that much money in either of those fields.

Nope, none of that for us…

My parents decided that we would be doctors, lawyers, pharmacists or accountants and that was kind of it :-D!

This is no pity party post or anything because I am so thankful that I got that grounding and frankly being brought up in Nigeria, if I had stayed there, it would have been a great way to look after my family.

And the truth is that the moment I turned 18, I could have chosen to step away from the family nest and go create my own fortunes doing things I wanted to do but I was too scared to try that.

And even to this day, as I bring up my own princesses, that deep inbuilt desire to make sure they get a professional education runs deep within me, even though I say that i want them to follow theirhearts and find work that they feel suits them, I get scared that I am setting them up for failure or something…

Except I am obviously not scared enough as I keep doign the home education thing anyway.  My desire for them to discover work that suits them, fulfills them and is absolutely what they are designed to do is stronger than my desire to conform to the ‘norms’ of 21st century life.

And maybe, you feel trapped in work that pays the bills handsomely but does nothing for your insides…

You worked hard to get here and though it feels unsatisfying, you think it is safest to stay put and maybe, try and do somethingon the side…

Except probably, like a former version of me, you try and start something that you think will make you money instead of listening in again to what you are most suited for…

Instead of following your passions, you take another sideways route and you do not go full in because you are a little bit too comfortable, if you are really being honest…

But then, if you are a deliberate millionaire, you realise that you are running out of time to live life the way you dream of and you decide finally to do your real work and life opens up incredibly!

You suddenly feel excited, fulfiled and happy because finally, you are doing your real work…

The work you are designed to do…

Listen, abundance is your birthright and when I say, abundance, I mean a feeling of expansiveness in all areas of life from your finances to the career/business you spend most of your time in.

Now is your time to follow your heart and begin doing work that makes you come alive…

No, you do not have to quit your current work but you do have to be committed to creating a life and a business that you want.

Fight for, create the business, the life you want!

So, tell me, what do you dream about doing?
