Hello everyone, and thank you for listening in to this bonus episode. Things are getting very exciting and very hectic around here as I put the finishing touches on my book and all the supporting materials that will go along with it.
I recently stopped referring to a “working title” and have said the title with confidence several times so I feel great to finally share it with you. The title of my book is, Accomplished: How to go from Dreaming to Doing.
To help promote the book I’ll be offering it for free for the first several days. If you want me to notify you when the book is live in Amazon send an email today to email@example.com and put “I want the book” in the subject line. You’ll get a grateful email from me the day the book is live and you’ll be able to snag a copy while the book is being offered for free.
This episode is a little bit longer than usual but I’ve got a story to share and this is actually an excerpt right from a chapter of the book and it starts with this quote from an unknown source:
“When the why is clear, the how is easy.” ~Unknown
When I was a young girl, I knew in my gut that God had put me on the Earth to do something special. I heard the bible stories, and I knew that, some day, I would have a dream in which God or an angel would speak to me and tell me what my special mission was.
These were the stories I grew up with. The Old Testament is full of them. God was constantly talking to people. I couldn't wait!
And then, as I got a little older, another element of these stories appeared. These stories didn't always have happy endings.
In fact, the ones who didn't die a horrible death usually didn't live a great life either. Poor Moses was kept out of The Promised Land after all he went through.
Being called on by God didn't seem so great anymore. I prayed one night for God NOT to call on me. I asked to live an ordinary life.
And for a time I had my way. My life was an ordinary life, and I did ordinary things. In college and throughout my 20s, I envied those people who knew exactly what they were meant to be doing. All the while, I still had this growing feeling in me that I was meant for more, that I should be doing more, and that I was throwing my life away to live an ordinary existence.
