If you’re like me, a very passionate person who has a tendency to put your all into something, every once and a while, you might take the time to stop. Look around, and wonder how you got here.
Sometimes your passion can lead you to places you never expected or intended to be. Not to worry there is redemption waiting for you. You are loved and accepted just as you are, and much of the good work which was accomplished during your tenure would not have come to pass were it not for you and your unbridled passion.
Therefore, it’s important to get a grip on your purpose, message, passion, and mission (PMPM) because knowing who you are and what you’re here for can help to keep you focused enough to navigate and maximize your life’s journey.
If you’ve discovered and embraced your gifts and special abilities, you find yourself being far more productive in certain scenarios in life and you ‘re attracting more and more opportunities to let your gifts and abilities to shine.
As more and more people become aware of your special abilities they are more apt to call on you, even feel as though they are somewhat dependent on you. When you are in tune with your inner guidance system, you are aware when the need of your special abilities has overridden your purpose, message, passion, and mission.
Usually, this awareness that you have been led off-track is accompanied by a feeling of incongruency, which is uncommon when you’re in the flow and momentum of doing what you do best because when you’re in the vibration of performing your special abilities it’s easy to get lost in your passion.
This can be incredibly complicated in the business community when others who feel as if their organizations or businesses cannot survive without your special skills and abilities. Occasionally, you may find yourself distracted by a variety of means, anything from love and affection to more and more cold hard cash. But your mission is not for sale, as you are more committed to be true to yourself.
There is also an important balance for you to maintain your own self-care to increase your personal power and ability to deliver and perform at your highest and best. All this needs to be balanced and held in perspective when you ask someone, “How can I help you?”
Nonetheless, once you’ve discovered that you’ve run off course, there is no shame in renegotiating or withdrawal from your over-committing. Of course, you need to exercise diligence in the recalibration, separation, or cutting-back to manage the renegotiation or resignation with as much dignity and grace as possible.
But if things have certainly gotten out of control, you must look after yourself first, in honor of the long-term effects this will have on your ministry on a larger scale. If you must make an abrupt change, you must do what you must do to preserve your ability to serve on a greater scale.
You need to be able to charge and re-charge your own energetic system so that you can serve from a cup which is full and overflowing. This is you delivering, serving, and working and a performance level which is your highest and best.
So, if your passion gets the best of you and leads you off-track, there is redemption for you. Take the time and make the effort to reposition yourself to maximize your potential while remaining true to your calling.
