Inspiration recently came to me as I was sitting in church. I had recently set out on a new business venture and although I wasn't looking for verification that my choice was the right one, I received affirmation anyway through “The Parable of the Talents” in the gospel of Matthew. You can read the story here. http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/search/?q=Matthew+25:14-30.
I will admit that even when you are pretty sure you are doing the right thing, it's always nice to hear something that drive it home.
When it comes to the challenge of discovering and living Soul Purpose, a little verification here and there doesn't hurt. For the fearless individuals out there that are already on their Soul Purpose path the idea of living your life to the fullest is not a new one. You are already out there on the front lines trying to get things done and living with an entrepreneurial spirit.
For the individuals I described above, living your Soul Purpose is the path that leads to the utmost success. And by success I mean, success in your family, success in business, success in your physical appearance etc. Not just being rich. Soul Purpose is the winning strategy to take all the powerful ingredients that you already possess (talents, gifts, passions) and channel that into a world of new possibilities. For most this is a leap of faith and a risky proposition but in the end well worth it.
If you don't know your Soul Purpose and haven't thought about it. My challenge to you is to take some time each morning and work on developing. A mentor in this area is usually the fastest and best way to speed up your journey on this path. If you do know your Soul Purpose are you living in it? If you are, you are probably already living the life that you want. If not, it's time to think about what's holding us back.
