You see quotes about hard work and you see successful people who seem to work all the time, and all the motivational videos on YouTube seem to feature men sweating profusely as they push the limits working out with weights or boxing in the ring.  It seems like a lot of effort and energy.

Most of all, it seems very painful…and lonely.

But that isn’t true.

Sure there are going to be sacrifices you’ll have to make but those sacrifices don’t have to be your family or friends or the activates that make your heart sing.

But there will be sacrifices you’ll have to make.  They’ll be thinks like sacrificing:

~watching hours on end of mindless and dumb TV;

~hanging out with people who don’t celebrate you;

~participating in activities you don’t enjoy;

~volunteer projects that you were guilted into joining;

~spending more time at work than what you really need to;

~trying to stay up with the latest trends in pop culture;

~wasting hours on social media and feeling deflated because of it;

~using a toothbrush to clean every nook and cranny of your home…

 

What if your loved ones and true friends complain that they don’t see much of you anymore?  Find a way to make them a part of what you’re doing to create a soul-prospering life.

Perhaps they can’t help you with hands-on tasks but showing them and explaining to them what you’re doing can give them a better idea of what you’re doing. They’ll come to understand how important it is to you.  Then, they’re more likely to help you create more time in your schedule to pursue your purpose and passion.  You’ll probably inspire them to do the same for themselves.  And this will then help you build richer, fuller relationships with those you love and those who are important to you.

It’s a win all around!

Plus that, doing the work isn’t really that hard or uncomfortable because your soul-prospering work is what you love and enjoy doing.

If you aren’t loving it or enjoying it in spite of the challenges then you are working someone else’s idea of what your soul-prospering work and soul-prospering life should be.

IMMEDIATELY change it to what is soul-prospering for YOU!!!!!

Walk YOUR talk:  do YOUR work!

I am positive you can do this.  I believe in you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
