If Not You Then Who?

You know you’re meant to do something great, right?

Maybe you know exactly what your mission is. Or, maybe you haven’t figured out just what it is quite yet.

Today I’m offering a little bit of entrepreneurial inspiration and motivation. Whether you know your mission statement or not…

Q. If you don’t step up and fulfill your mission, who will?

Each one of us comes uniquely designed with our unique talents, passion, interests and even fears, to do the work we’re meant to do on this earth.

Max Lucado said it best when he said this:

You weren’t an accident. You weren’t mass-produced. You aren’t an assembly line product. You were deliberately, specifically gifted and lovingly positioned on the earth by the master craftsman.”

So again: Maybe you already know what the work is you were born to do, or maybe you’re still figuring it out.

Either way, I want to spur you on today to step up to the work you were born to do.

If not you, then who?

What’s your mission?

I want to share a story with you.

Recently I was speaking to a client about her mission, which is to bring love and compassion to the workplace.

I told her, “You are the one. You are the one to do this.”

As she described the challenges she’s faced over the last few years, I helped her shift her perspective to view those challenges as part of her journey. They were helping her to become even better at bringing compassion to the work place.

Even though it may not appear this way at first, challenges help you do what you’re doing even better. Challenges do not have to be obstacles. They can be something you are grateful for – something you appreciate – because they help you step up even bigger and even better.

Now, when you have a mission, it can feel scary. (I know – it’s such a big job to fulfill it!)

But you ARE the one to do it. And you do NOT have to do it alone.

Say Yes and Accept Your Mission

You need to say, “Yes,” to accepting your mission, whatever it is. You need to be willing to take the next step.

When you do, the next step will show up. Help will show up.

Just say, “Yes.”

If not you, then who?
