1. You suck at working for other people.
You’re a born leader and you know it. Or maybe you don’t know it. But either way, you’re just NOT into doing things that aren’t catalyzing big change. You feel stuck working for others. You want freedom, flexibility, creativity, and expansion, and you just don’t feel you can fully achieve that while working for someone else. You know that your vision is worth something, and that getting to apply ALL of your gifts is the only way you’ll be fully satisfied.
2. You tend to put things off until you’re really inspired.
So you call yourself a procrastinator. There is such a thing as self sabotaging procrastination, but if you’re meant for something bigger (which, if you’re reading this, I have a sneaking suspicion you are), there will also be times when you believe you must get something done because that’s what you think is going to get you from point A to point B. But what if you actually thrive off of inspiration, versus obligation?You deserve to be able to evaluate which is true for you in each moment. Is fear holding you back from chipping away at your to-do list? Or is it because you’re lacking inspiration. If it’s the latter, trust that doing exactly what you’re inspired to do is leading you to where you need to be. Often that inspiration knows more than we do about what’s really possible.
3. As a kid you thought adults who wore suits and went off to work were crazy.
You’ve always known somewhere deep within you that there was more to life than living a cookie-cutter, safe, pragmatic lifestyle. You knew you could have a bigger impact on the world if you did it your way, and that your way would involve more freedom and flexibility than those crazy adult-types had. And now, whether you’ve fully achieved it yet or not, you know that that feeling you had as a kid is utterly true. You’ve witnessed and felt what it’s like to live just as much on purpose in your flip flops as you have your business suit.
4. You love what you do so much you’d do it for free.
Here’s the irony – you deserve to know your value, and the more you begin to charge your full value for the contribution you’re making to the world, the more value those you serve will actually receive. However, you know you’re on purpose and meant to do big things when you love what you do so much that while you’re doing it money is not even on your mind.
