“When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it. ” ~ W. Clement Stone

I need to do this

explore this

because its pull demands it.

I can’t help it

It speaks to who I am

it’s what I do, it’s what I want to do.

When my mind tells me to just do the safe thing

when I see the look of worry in your face

when everything around me and within me is screaming to be reasonable

when the weight of the burden to do what’s expected brings me to my knees

when fear tightens its grip on me and I struggle to breathe

I gather my courage, stand up, straighten my posture and set my sight on the horizon.

I love you for your concern, I do – I’m scared too.

Can you understand?

This is what I am compelled to do

it burns within me

if I fail, then I fail

but if I don’t try I will always wonder.


What compels you?
