What’s this all about (140 characters or less)
Just like the song says you can get a “good feeling”… but then what do you do? B&T tell you exactly what to do…read on!
Many times it sneaks up on us; despite the fact that it’s been buried deep within us for years! It’s that moment when you’re doing that which you were called to do. You could be singing your heart out in your church choir (or the shower – danke schoen), taking photographs for fun, writing your first blog post, or you could give a presentation to a group of folks within your industry, and you…come alive! You get a “good feeling.”
Most of the time, many of us do this form of play (work) on our free time. Some of us are lucky enough to do this work while we’re at our day job, and therefore, don’t consider this “work” a job. Those people are living their purpose and as a result their days are just that…days. There’s no distinction between a work day and play day. These folks have skipped the job step (what pays the bills), stepped past the career step (what pays the bills, plus recognizes them) and are standing atop their calling (that which they were called to do). When you’re doing what you were called to do, you’re using your gifts and talents for the greater good, and you have (as Maslow would have called it) achieved, “self-actualization.” Now that’s GenYus!
So…you’re doing that thing you do and like the song says, “Oh, oh, sometimes you get a good feeling, yeah” now what? What do you do with this feeling? Especially if you’re not loving the life you’re living because you’re workin’ your job or spinning your wheels in a career? You think you’re onto something because when you’re doing that thing, you get that good feeling and your life instantly has meaning. So what do you do next?
Embrace the you-know-what out of it and find a way to do that which you were called to do part-time, even if it’s for free! The name of the game is to do what you do part-time until you can replace your full-time income, with the income from your part-time calling.
If you remember one thing and one thing only, it’s this…your feelings are trying to tell you something! Don’t ignore them. Especially, when you’re getting that “good feeling.” This is a sign. If you’ve got the feeling and seriously don’t know what to do, stop your worrying right now and hit us up. The GenYus community is on standby ready to help you break free!
So …we’re dying to know, what gives you that good feeling?
What were you called to do?
Sound off in the comments and unleash your inner GenYus.
