In my previous blog I described the important connections between feeling, thinking, and doing in our lives.
In this blog we will dive a little deeper into Step 1: Feeling.
Do you feel very clearly that there is something that you need to do in this life and on this earth?
That there is a reason for you to live this life?
Let’s try to find the words to describe this feeling by answering the following questions:
- What makes you happy?
- What gives you energy?
- Do you often do what makes you happy?
- Do you know why you do what you do?
- Does everything you do give you energy?
An important part of “feeling” is determining our “energy words”.
Energy words are words that express what you are good at and what you enjoy doing. Words that belong to you and give you direction. These words together form the basis for your soul’s mission. A mission that you can read to yourself time and time again. A mission that you carry close to you and that keeps you focused in difficult times.
To determine these words, you have to look deep inside of yourself. You have to figure out who you are. It can be difficult to distance yourself from people that believe they already have a good idea of who you are – or at least they think they do.
But the only one who really has anything to say about that is you!
I challenge you to write down your energy words; these words are the start of your soul’s mission.
