It’s a compelling urge to act. It keeps you awake and night and preoccupies most of your day. It’s the thing you’ve done since the beginning of time without even thinking twice about it. It’s been pecking at your subconscious, graduating into pounding knocks. When you finally answer it, you realize it was your life’s calling all along.
Everything about it makes sense. You get to a point that fear is replaced by the determination to finish. Debbie Sterling, the founder of GoldieBlox, describes how it felt to acknowledge the meaning of her life.
Sometimes it takes a while to make sense of all of life’s little hints. It wasn’t until she had a conversation with close friends that it became clear.
The passion behind pursuing your purpose is authentic. It is the fuel that will drive you to continue in the face of adversity. Seeing your ideas transpire in front of your eyes offers a sense of fulfillment that no amount of money can buy.
Being an entrepreneur is stressful. The depths of the unknown are far too numerous to count. Don’t let comfort and complicity make you miss out on the opportunity to achieve your personal purpose. If Debbie continued to ignore it, she never would’ve been inducted into the National Women’s History Museum. Why wait to make your mark on the world? Get out there and get started. Before you take the leap, make sure you’ve created a sound financial plan. Click here to subscribe to the Professor Savings YouTube channel and learn how.
