Are you Answering the Call?
By Reggie Odom
Do you know that you are being called to greatness, your
greatness, at this moment? You are being called to your greatness not
only at this moment but every moment of every day?
Your greatness is what you must be and do to feel fully alive. What is
that? The answer is to be found within you.
Before you read on I invite you to tune in and listen within - right
now and from now on. Listen within for that inner sense or inner knowing
that is calling you. Read on...
The call to greatness comes in large and small ways.
In our lifetime we will receive many calls. All are leading us toward
greater aliveness. Some ways the call comes are:
* By a gentle inner nudge
* From a deep desire of our heart
* By a seemingly impossible dream
* We are called by the "still, small voice" within us
* Or by a strong, insistent knowing
We also receive wake up calls that come in the form of illness, the break-up
of a relationship, loss of a job or clients, significant decrease in income
or the passing of a loved one.
The call can be a subtle message - "Do this instead"
when you are considering a different direction.
And it can be something so grand as to take your breath.
When this has happened to you - and it has - you've probably said to yourself
or to whatever is calling, "Who me? You must be thinking of someone
How do you think Joan of Arc felt when she heard the call? When she was
13 years old, Joan (Jeanne) first heard the call to "SAVE FRANCE!"
When the voice became insistent that she do so now, she said, "Yes"
and though her leadership France was saved.
Your call is just right for you. You may not ever receive
a call as big as Joan of Arc. Or there might be something even bigger
for you. Whatever you are called to be or do, it is yours and yours alone.
We each and all have our unique path in life and each one is as important
as any other in the grand scheme of things. They all work together for
both our individual good and the greater good.
There is nothing more important than that you say "yes" to
the path that you are called to take. Your aliveness is at stake. And
whether you know it or not, others are waiting for you.
Listen... What is it that you have to be or do to feel fully
Just say "yes" and the way will open before you!
Are You Ready...
