One fascinating inquiry that guides my curiosity and was an essential building block that led to the creation of this podcast is:
How do we end up doing the work that we do?
In specific, what I really mean to explore is
How do people end up doing work that totally lights them up?
How can we live lives that feel purposeful?
What can we do to ensure that we take our right path...the best path for ourselves?
I’ve been completely captivated by these questions ever since the first time I ever felt “stuck” in life. They seemed more reachable than the sometimes intimidating and seemingly amorphous existential questions of “why are we here?” or “why am I here?” (although these are fun to contemplate too). In the end, these question are in and of the same as there is only one essential truth. But there are many paths to get here and at times the initial questions just seem more palpable than the last.
Good thing that Spiritual Business Coach, Mariaestela Gullestrap is on the same wavelength! In this episode we explore these questions and Mariaestela lends the wisdom that she’s collected from her own journey into this inquiry. One of my biggest takeaways from our conversation is that we can be prescribed a hundred thousand million kajillion famillion strategies/habits/skills to “get it right” but at the end of the day, it boils down to a very simple piece of knowledge that we already know at some level or another.
Live your life. Choose love.
Live your life. Whether you like it or not, your life is already unfolding. Instead of worrying and fighting and trying to control it to look a certain way, just try going with it. See what happens. It’s already started and it’s already bringing you to where you need to be.
Choose love. Make the choices that make you feel light and expansive - that’s the real you. Anything that shrinks and suffocates you is not you.
Damn. As always, the most powerful wisdom is the simplest (I didn’t say easiest ;))
Okay plug in those earbuds and listen away! Maybe have a journal ready, there are some mighty nuggets you might want to remember!
