Inner Shift Insight – Destiny

self help "Destiny can be choice, rather than chance"

We are creating our destiny every moment of every day each time we make a decision to take action.  And every action is a result of our thoughts and feelings in response to our beliefs. If you are paying attention to your thoughts, if you are aware of your feelings, if you are curious about your beliefs and what drives you, then you will take action that is intentionally chosen.  You will be in charge of your destiny and able to create the life you want.

When I say Destiny here I am referring to purpose.  Choosing to live life purposefully, choosing our destiny.

When we are living with purpose, no matter what that purpose might be, life flows, life is easier.  We are happy and content - living our best life with peace of mind.  I know that since the day I discovered my purpose, I have not once, even in the ups and downs, felt empty or confused or lonely. 

There are times when we feel lost or stuck.  Maybe we take our life in a direction that was chosen for us instead of our choosing.  Or opportunities and choices seem limited or out of reach.  Or we are just too busy and it’s too easy to distract or avoid.  In any case we are floundering and sometimes we don’t even know it.  But our unconscious knows deep within us, what is really meant for us.  Sure we can fool ourselves for a while, but eventually we become ill, or depressed, or have that feeling that something just isn’t right, something is missing - a sense of emptiness deep inside us that nags us from the peripheral.  But these experiences are gifts, if we listen to the message.

You can uncover all the garbage and clutter and chatter that is deafening you to your inner voice.  As you uncover your deepest desires, as you discover your untapped talents, as you courageously face your present situation, your true self will emerge. You will shift and grow.  You will move forward in life with confidence and purpose. You will feel fulfilled, content and life will flow – ahhh, peace.

So if you are one of the many who hear yourself say –What am I doing with my life?   How did I get here?  Why am I not doing what I know I need to do? 

Stop, feel and listen. Your inner voice is calling.
