Hello SOTGC community,
You will know it when you feel it. The feeling will be all over you. It’s the kind of feeling that you will be unable to shake. Nothing you try will work, your mind will continuously remind you of it, and it will consume you in every way possible.
You may know that feeling? That feeling you get when it’s time … time to move on! Some of us try to fight the feeling with everything we have. We try talking ourselves down from reality. Or, even worse, we play the charades game of denial: hoping and sometimes wishing that the feeling would get off of our back.
Then, ultimately, there comes a time when we accept the fact that the feeling isn’t going anywhere! Leaving us curious yet a bit cautious. Because owning the feeling will require us to switch, adjust, and/or change to eliminate the feeling. The feeling isn’t a bad thing at all. We’re the ones that don’t see the feeling for what it’s worth. The feeling is there to force us to chase our dreams. It’s there as a platform to free us from not walking into our destiny.
You see, the feeling represents what’s next in your life. It’s similar to your internal clock or intuition. That feeling is your gage, a way to discern whether you are maximizing your talents and fulfilling your mission in life. Many of us do our very best to ignore the feeling, even as we fight the tears back. As going to work is limiting, it’s a place of confinement rather than growth.
Are you constantly nagged by that feeling of writing a book, starting a business, standing up for yourself, or asking for more money during your annual review?
It doesn’t matter what your personal feeling represents. The only thing that does matter is that you embrace the feeling. Respect the feeling for what it is and, most importantly, what it has to offer you.
Instead of ignoring that feeling and trying to dismiss it, I invite you to embrace that feeling and allow it to lead you in a place of warmth, fulfillment, and appreciation for your new life. Let us know via Twitter and tag @empowermee and @SOTGC in your post. As we would love to share how you’re now working for yourself!
