To answer the call is to live beyond your means, and accept an invitation to go higher up in your own evolution. In Purposescaping, I teach a principle called “spiraling up” which means taking everything you’ve learned about yourself on one level and refining it so you have an even more narrow, more focused iteration of your calling on the next level. Imagine a pyramid that gets narrower and narrower as you approach the top. That’s the path to your purpose. And as you spiral up to each subsequent level, the levels get more focused.
You “spiral up” enough times over the course of your life and you find yourself walking in a version of your purpose that only you can occupy.
But the first step of getting to that hyper-focused version of the purpose that was designed specifically for you and only you is essentially a faith walk. It’s answering a call when you’re not sure where the call is leading you – where the journey is taking you, whether this crazy idea of yours is going to work or not.
I can’t tell you whether anything you do or anything you try will work. But I can tell you that a part of the journey to clearing a pathway to what you were meant to do with your life comes in large part from acting, moving, making mistakes, learning from those mistakes, refining, recrafting, eliminating the excess, and pruning away the branches that are dead and stalling your future growth.
Remember: your next level was already promised to you. How do you know? You know it was promised to you and only you because the call keeps calling you and only you. No one else can hear your call. No one else can see your path with the clarity you see it. But nobody else can validate it for you. No one else can confirm it. No one else can tell you they see what you see.
And I believe you see it. You just may not be allowing yourself to answer it by taking that first step because it feels almost like a mirage. You’re afraid you’re stepping out over a cliff into nothingness because you have no proof there’s solid ground to support your next step. You’re trying to live within your means by sticking to what you know.
And yet the call keeps calling, daring you to evolve.
