As a kid I remember playing hide and seek and other games. If I was the one seeking I remember saying ‘Ready or not here I come’ after counting. Once I started seeking, I would then say ‘come out come out wherever you are.’ Even though I knew they weren’t coming out, I knew they wanted to be found. Sometimes I could hear giggles or people moving around. If we were in the house, I could sometimes here the other kids breathing really hard. Now as mom, when I play with my son, he hides in plain sight as if I can’t see him and of course the giggles are hilarious. He knows I am coming, he wants me to come get him, so he puts out a few clues to get to me come find him.
Can you relate?
Do you remember playing hide and seek?
Do you remember being the one hiding or how about being the one seeking?
If you were the one hiding, I wonder if you still hide today. Not in the sense of playing the game, but in the sense of playing hide and seek with your life and even your purpose. As I am preparing for the October Life Purpose Coaching Call this month, the theme for this month’s call is Stop Hiding: Learn to Quit playing Hide & Seek with your Life and Purpose. The premise behind this month’s call is that as we close out 2014 and embark on preparing for 2015, you need to come out of hiding and start living and manifesting your best life.
I meet and work with women who know they are good at something or who desire more in life but never do what it takes to pursue their dreams.
Is this you?
If so, it is time for you to come out come out wherever you are.
At the beginning of the this year, or maybe even 365 days ago from this very day, you had goals, aspirations and desires to make this year the best year. However you’ve been going back and forth. You start then you stop. You get distracted and you stray from what you are supposed to be doing. You share you dreams and then get swayed in to thinking that it’s too much or that it won’t happen or ‘who am I to think I could… [you fill in the answer].’
I could go on and on and on and on but I won’t. This week’s post is all about challenging you, daring you and darn right pushing you in to the forefront of your life. No more hiding behind other people’s success. No more being happy for others when you have yet to pursue that which makes you happy.
I would love for you to join me on tonight’s Life Purpose Coaching Call, but if you can’t, here are a few questions I would like for you to ponder as you think about why you are still hiding:
- How long will you keep hiding?
- When will you take more than just one step?
- What are you afraid of?
- What is it that you know you are supposed to be doing?
- Why aren’t you doing it?
- Why haven’t you been consistent?
- Are you ready to be found by those seeking you?
Now remember when I mentioned at the beginning of this post that those who are hiding actually want to be find? Well let me just say that I think it’s time for those seeking you, your gift, your purpose and your call to find you. It’s time to come out from hiding and walk in the fullness of who you were created to be. Enough procrastinating, hee-hawing, second-guessing, and stalling.
How long are you going to stall before your time is up?
Yep I said it…
You can’t expect people to wait around for you until you get it together. Some may but others won’t. You have a specific group of people who are tied and connected to you, your purpose, your goals, your gifts, your calling and your life. When you don’t operate in full capacity you minimize the power and effect of the change and results you could produce in some one else’s life.
I think you want to be found. I think you want to connect those who need you in their life. I think you want to be used in the fullest capacity.
But the questions… will you stop hiding?
P.S. Don’t forget to join me tonight at 6pm for the Monthly Life Purpose Coaching Call.
