You Ever Feel Like There is a "Gap"...
You ever feel like there is a “gap”? You keep telling yourself once you do this last thing that “gap” will be filled and you will know that it was all “worth it”. Then you reach that goal, that promotion, that income, that title and it feels good for a little bit… then after a week or two. Uh oh, there is that “gap” again.
It is that “gap” that makes you wonder if something is just wrong with you. “Why can’t I just be happy, satisfied, fulfilled like most people say I probably should, look at all I have accomplished, look how blessed I am”…”but why does it kind of feel all empty?”
I have been there before, a few times to be honest. So what did I do? Well, at first I would just look for the next thing to be good at, get another accolade, certification, a few pats on the back and compliments then….rinse and repeat. I am pretty stubborn huh? Haha.
The thing that I was missing in the whole picture, the thing that I was missing that created that gap was… well… me. “What are you taking about brother?”
Stick with me, I will try to explain.
While I was out there doing “good” I never paid attention what I truly wanted, what really drove me, who I was as a person, or what I needed to be truly happy. I lived by a high standard, and treated people well. I was seen as a leader and I loved my family, but it was never enough. There is a certain level of clarity and connection to our authentic self that can not be ignored if we want to have that inner peace and fulfillment.
Once you get to that point, all the titles, roles, awards get put in the right perspective. Your relationships are more rewarding and passionate. You become a stronger leader, because it is easier to connect with people. The best part is you start to see what you are really made of and realize you can accomplish more than before, but THIS time the whole journey of the success means something.
And that is just a glimpse of what you can do by making this shift. Trying to check all the boxes isn’t helping fill that “gap”, are you ready to build from within?
