How many people do you know who are just not happy or content in their lives? You know the ones, those who are never cheerful, always complaining about life and about people. They talk of life being hard, that life is not a picnic, that you have to struggle and do it tough to get anywhere in life. They are grinding themselves into the ground.
Today I had the pleasure, and enjoyment of watching ‘Disney’s The Kid’ staring Bruce Willis.
On the eve of his 40th birthday, Russ Duritz, a successful image consultant played by Bruce Willis , had his life turned upside down when he comes face to face with young Rusty, none other than Russ himself as an 8-year-old. Rusty is a sweet kid who is bullied at school and dreams of growing up to fly a plane and own a dog. He is not at all happy with how he turns out to be a 40-year-old that has achieved none of his dreams. Young Russ helps old Russ to help himself and remember his dreams as a kid, in order to become the grown up he wants to b..
It’s so easy to become either complacent with life or totally lost on our journey. Both lead us to the point where we look at ourselves and our lives and think ‘is this the best we could have hoped for.’ For many those expectations we had when we were young have come nowhere near being achieved. Life simply hasn’t measured up to our dreams as youngsters.
Readers of my blogs will know by now that I have been through very difficult times. Now based on both my experiences and life lessons together with my coaching qualifications and both my writing and speaking skills I hope to be a source of encouragement for anyone who might be struggling with their journey through life. I want to help them discover their dreams then go for them.
Some of you are in a tough spot through circumstance; maybe you’ve lost a job, you’ve faced illness, or something else.
Why does life often not turn out like we expected when younger?
I believe that for many it’s that they don’t follow their bliss. That is what’s missing from their life, connecting with this would change everything.
Follow your bliss, a concept created by Joseph Campbell, means finding that one thing that fulfils your whole life. When you follow your bliss, you know you are because you feel it within, everything just begins to feel right and things just seem to come your way to help you on your journey.
Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls. Joseph Campbell
Following your bliss doesn’t mean only going toward situations that make you happy, but also taking yourself out of those that make you miserable. This can be a job, a relationship, a living arrangement, or whatever in your life causes too many demands on you.
Bliss is that deep, fulfilling, sustainable, driving need you have. That thing that is the true ‘you’. Your bliss is your life’s purpose. Your bliss gives your otherwise meaningless life meaning. Wisdom Website
When you allow yourself to follow your bliss you remember the dream you’ve had since childhood it’s been there waiting for you to reconnect to it. Whether a burning desire or a subtle calling, it is there, deep within, you just have to want to find it.
Your active involvement in following your bliss will lead you to new, more fulfilling life. No more moaning and groaning about the cards you’ve been dealt in life, no more frustration with your day to day existence. Your bliss gives you a sense of purpose, belonging, clear objectives, and deep self-awareness.
Now go inside and discover your bliss. It’s time for action, go ahead, challenge yourself so you can amaze yourself and accomplish your dreams! You really do have everything within you to succeed in life, so fight those fears, and go for it big time.
If you want to get a jump start on following your bliss, I suggest you check out my Life Coaching Page, and don’t share this with anyone because at the moment I’ve priced this at 50% less than my normal investment.
