Listen to Your Restlessness

Listen to your restlessness, it’s telling you something.


It’s telling you that there’s something more out there for you.


It’s telling you that there’s something more in you.


Your restlessness often points to the calling inside your soul.


When I was 17, I was accepted to a top university in Los Angeles as a pre-med student.


I thought I wanted to be a doctor.


As excited and grateful as I was for the opportunity, there was a restlessness inside of me that told a different story.


When I was 21, I was accepted to the top law schools in Los Angeles with scholarship offers. 


I thought I wanted to be a lawyer.


Yet again, that same restlessness inside of me told a different story.


The best decision I made in my life was to listen to that restlessness - to follow the path that called my soul.


Was it easy?


Of course not.


Did people around me think I was crazy to turn away such great opportunities to become a doctor or a lawyer?


Many did.


Did those decisions lead me down a much less predictable path, a road far less travelled?


Absolutely.


But those difficult decisions ultimately led me to where I am now - a beautiful place where I get to live life on my own terms and to live my soul’s calling every single day.


Had I not listened to my restlessness, I would have probably been an unfulfilled doctor or lawyer today.


While becoming a doctor or a lawyer is a great path for others, and perhaps a soul’s calling for smaller percentage of them, my path was very different.


My path wasn’t very obvious to me at first - it was only revealed through listening to that restlessness deep inside of me.


Listen to your restlessness, it just might lead you to the life of your dreams.
