Gone Fishing

So You've Gone Fishing - WHY?

So you’re the one I’ve heard so much about. You know who you are. You’re the one who spent years perfecting your trade. You attended every class, even when your friends were skiing. You walked every day to the library to complete that paper, even when you were not sure how the bills would be paid at the end of the month. Yes, I know who you are; the world knows who you are…

So there you sit, some days literally and some days figuratively, on the couch of life. You were trained to be – but you are not being; why? Could it be because you are scared of the responsibility of being held accountable? Oh, you have the skills, you have the training, and yes, you have the experience. Yet fear is holding you back from getting paid to do what you’ve prepared to do.

So today you’ve gone fishing. You even caught a fish. But standing there on the dock for the proverbial picture, you know today was not a success. You know this because your hands were designed to do what they have been prepared to do and that did not include fishing (or lining kitchen drawers or any other good activity that distracts from giving the world your gift).

Bottom line, it’s time to get your fanny out of the boat and walk on the water. You can do it because you’ve learned the things you need to know to do it. Today make the choice to embrace your open heaven. After all, it’s what the world needs from you and playing not to loose will not allow others the privilege of watching you do what you were created to do.
