Jump Into Your Purpose NOW Or WAIT a Little Longer?
When talking about purpose, a lot of people will encourage you to just jump into the unknown.
“Quit your job and do it.”
“You don’t have to study or prepare. Just do it!”
“Close your eyes, trust, and just jump!”
I agree with this mentality on certain occasions. Typically when you have some experience in the area of your purpose and parts of you are ready for the shift, but there are fears that you won’t be supported or you'll fail miserably is when I encourage clients to “strategically throw caution to the wind” and just do it!
However, this type of action can feel overly shocking for the nervous system if you're not ready. It doesn’t mean it’s the wrong decision. It just means that you may have to navigate deeper emotions and more intensified fears and anxieties.
If you find that you want a more gentle approach to stepping into your purpose, I invite you to transition instead of blindly leaping.
Continue doing what you are currently doing to make money and feel some sense of security, while you take massive action in the direction of your purpose at the same time.
Let the parts of you that are ready to stand in your purpose know that it’s coming and will happen soon.
When you feel a certain level of sturdiness in your purpose (it doesn’t have to be a complete sensation of security), take the leap.
This way, you're moving in the direction of your purpose without shocking your nervous system and completely abandoning your fearful parts.
I want to know how it was for you when you jumped into your purpose or how it’s going if you’re considering taking the leap.
