Why are you even here?
To make a little money so you have the freedom to live your life the way you want?
Is there MORE?
Srsly. WHAT CHANGE ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE with the work you do?
If you’re anything like me, eventually, you’ll grow decidedly bored of doing work that lacks meaning. It’s not enough to be great at what you do, it’s not enough to have a bank full of cash, and it’s not enough to work with people who lack the drive to make a profound difference in the world.
You want MORE.
…more than freedom
…more than money
…more than happiness
…more than that that Louis Vuitton bag you’ve been eyeing like forever
You want to make CHANGE with the work you do, don’t you?
You, my friend, have the blood of changemaker.
So? Tell me – what matters to you? What change are you trying to make?
I want gut-stirring, can’t-sleep-because-I’m-too-excited, paradigm-shifting purpose that lights me up and drives me to show up in a REALLY BIG WAY.
What’s your MORE look like?
You know that unrelenting whisper in the very back of your mind that’s vague and familiar all at once?
There’s a vibe to it that buzzes through your body, but you can’t define it, you can’t translate the fragments of information that come to you randomly, and you certainly can’t put it on paper.
It’s a longing, a desire, the pain of unmet potential…
It’s your MORE.
And it gets worse with time, demanding to be heard- that you heed its call… but you can’t.
It’s too slippery, too fuzzy, too vague.
How the hell do you scratch that kind of itch?
Another online course?
Fuck no. You’d never finish it anyway – you’re tired as hell of courses.
And besides, extraordinary doesn’t happen in a vacuum – it happens in action, in the world, under the light of the blazing yellow sun…
It happens as you DO.
And it grows as you DO.
And it becomes clear as you DO.
My best advice (for now, in this moment) is this:
Admit to yourself that even though you don’t know what it is yet… you want MORE and goddammit, you’re gonna find it.
Pinky swear it.
Inspired to take action?
Answer these questions and see if it sparks something MORE for you… if so, write about it and see where it takes you. Can you create a new service out of it?
1. What makes you superfucking angry about our world/society/your industry?
2. What makes you superfucking excited about our world/society/your industry?
3. What’s the most dominant aspect of your personality when you’re in your zone of genius?
Now get thee gone and enter thyself into a deep meditative trance to see what shakes loose or some shit like that.
You know I love your face, right?
Hit me up if you want some private Pond time. I can do some fancy consulty shit with you that brings you closer to your MORE. It’s all about running the right experiment with the right goggles and beakers and chemicals and hypothesiseseses, yeah?
Just navigate on over to my contact page and tell me what’s on yer mind.
And I love when everyone posts in the Facebook group, Peculiar Exclusivity – bring your questions, inspirations, frustrations, and MORE. I’ll do my best to give you some TLC!
Hug, hug. Kiss, kiss.
