Hi! I moved to a new place. I would love for you to visit me there.

How To Find Your Thing. If There Is Such a Thing.

Do you know what your thing is?

You know  – The Thing.

If you don’t know, I bet you would love to find it. And I bet  you are looking for it. I bet you are probably thinking about it on a regular… or at least regularish basis.

Everywhere you go, everyone is urging you to find your thing. Your purpose. Your passion. Because when you find it, you’ll be able to live your life with… you know…passion and purpose And who doesn’t want that?

When I did group workshops in the past I would always get someone in the group who to my questions  – “What do you always find time to do even if life gets really busy? What would you do if money was not an issue? What are you attracted to? What inspires you? What do you like to talk about? What books do you like to read?” answer with –“I don’t know”. I could never figure out how to help those people.

But I bet you, yes – YOU, know.

You know.

True that our subconscious keeps us from knowing what we know. But you can ask questions. And look for clues. And pay attention. And you will know. It is not hard at all. So why do still lots of people claim that they don’t know what their thing is?

Because someone convinced us that we have to find The Thing.

The one and only.

That’s lots of pressure.

But you know what?

Maybe there is no one thing? We are multidimensional beings. Maybe there is no need to look for the one. And maybe, just maybe, the one you choose is the one because you said so.

No destiny.

Life purpose?

Bullshit.

Your life purpose is to be yourself and do what you are inspired to do.

You might be inspired to do many things. Just pick one for now. And start doing it already. You can always change it or add another one and another one to the mix or put a new twist on it.

Your thing will be getting clearer and clearer once you start acting on it. I wrote about it many times already. And I know that I myself don’t always follow my advice, but I really, really want to start following it because I know – action is the best way to find your unique thing.

You have to start acting on what you already know.

And you do know something.

It might turn out to be something completely different at the end. But if you don’t take consistent action, it will never turn into anything. You won’t find your thing by reading books, attending workshops or meditating. You will find it only by acting. On what you know now.

So what do you know?

You know that you like doing xyz no matter how busy your life gets.

You know that you like reading books about xyz.

You know that the websites you like to visit are about xyz.

You know that you like to talk about xyz and you get excited talking about it.

You know that you feel inspired, excited, fired up or simply very good doing xyz.

You know that you want to revolutionize xyz.

You know that you get really bothered when someone doesn’t get xyz.

You know.

And that’s enough to know.

My example?

I know that I love talking about doing what you are passionate about.  I like to talk about sleepwalking and how we all need to wake up, myself including. I know that when I go to the bookstore I usually like to stop at the entrepreneurship/self help/parenting sections or crafty/design magazines. I know that I love talking about my kids and things I learned and things I’d like to learn about this whole conscious parenting thing. I know that I get really bothered when I see what some people eat and what they feed to their kids. And don’t even get me started on what I think about our food industry. I love reading books and visiting websites of people who do what they love, show who they truly are without apologizing, and rock it.  I know that I am attracted to crafty/creative stuff.

I know much more than that, but that’s enough for starters.

Do you see one thing here? I see lots of things.

And all of them could be my thing. Right now it is clarity and helping people to gain it. Because I also happen to be good at asking the right questions. And right questions are the best way to clarity.

But, really, any of the things above can be my thing if I choose so. Or I can combine all of those things. And that’s why I write about green smoothies one day and excuses the other day and my kids and our special celebrations the next day and finding your thing the day after that.

It doesn’t have to be just one thing. Because I am not one thing.

You don’t have to be… no, you CAN’T be one thing. You just need to pick one thing to start with.

Start now. Start the best you can. Start with what you know. Adjust if necessary. Keep going. And see what happens.

So what are your things? Which one will you start with?

Great post! You are right, action is the key–it gives you much more insight than anything else when trying to find what you want to create for yourself and the world.

I truly wish I’d had someone speaking this kind of message into my life when I was a kid. Instead the stress surrounding “What are you going to be when you grow up” nearly drove me mad. Now in my 50’s I get it, and I am doing my “thing” and that “thing” constantly evolves, and I’m loving what I do.

This is a great message. Keep sharing!
