When I was a child I thought about this question a lot.
One day on a family holiday I could feel the thick sand underneath my feet as I ran. I thought I want to be a lifesaver. Then I pushed myself to run as fast as I could.
I also remember telling my Mum I wanted to be a Nun. Perhaps this was after watching Sister Act as all the Nun’s seemed so happy.
As I grew older, I wanted to be a ballerina in the Australian Ballet. Although too little confidence and an intense understanding of the demands on one’s body, I opted out.
Then one day, the thought came to me to be a Pastor of my own Church.
After many more years of soul-searching, unsure which direction to travel, I ended up dabbling my talents and skills in a lot of areas.
I realised something. It does not matter what path I follow and how many times I change it. What matters is at that precise moment, that is the course I want to be on. And through what I do if I can help people find their true calling in life, then I am helping the world build a brighter future.
If we chase our true hearts desires each day, no matter how crazy the ideal is, can you imagine how much excitement and passion the world would be buzzing with?
Can you imagine watching people’s lives transform from their mundane living to watching them grow as they push themselves to new heights that they want to work towards?
Can you imagine a life that holds no meaning, no love and no hope or passion for something greater?
Who would want to image a life that?
Instead, let go of all the strings pulling you in all directions and take a moment and think about what you want your life to look like, if there was nothing pulling you. Take off the strings pulling in you in all directions.
Breathe, smile, dream, transform your life.
Be fearless when it comes to chasing your dreams.
