If we build it…

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric ByrnesLeave a Comment

No matter what we are currently doing or what stage of our lives that we are in, there is one constant voice that continues to speak to each and every one of us…

Any guesses??? 

“I know, I know!!!” 🙋‍♂️

Good morning Mr. SuperSoft. Enlighten us, please…

“I am the voice that always speaks to me because I have all the answers and I am always right! As long as I listen to myself and follow my lead, I am unstoppable.”

I like the confidence in yourself Stevie, truly commendable but unfortunately, it is completely unwarranted… You haven’t done shit with your life and you continually try to unsuccessfully hack the system with your false bravado which leads you back to making ridiculous ass statements in my class that force me to ask you to leave… So, on that note, get your arrogant narcissistic ass out of my class…

Sorry, where were we? 

Oh yea, does anybody else know the one thing that is always whispering sweet nothings into our ear???

Yes, Sammy Savage…

“Professor EB, I am not sure about everybody else, but I feel like the one thing that is always trying to tell me something is the universe…”

💥 

Correct Mr. Savage… 

The one consistent voice that has the ability to serve as the ultimate guiding light in all of our lives is the universe.

Too often we become consumed with our wants and needs while selfishly and ignorantly ignoring universal signs trying to lead us in a different direction…

So what can we do about it? 

Just listen… 

Listen to our thoughts, listen to our ideas, listen to our feelings, listen to other people, listen to loved ones, listen to strangers, listen to our work, listen to our play, listen to circumstances in our life, listen to the lessons of the past and the dreams of our future… Most importantly, listen to the moment, RIGHT NOW.

What’s it telling us? 

When we listen, we are able to hear then digest what our universe is actually trying to say.

From this point, it’s up to us to follow that guidance and DO SOMETHING about it…

Sure, the universe may be telling us to stay on course and continue to let our actions reflect our commitment to a lifestyle predicated on consistent passion, energy and effort… 

Yet, the universe may also be asking us to take a complete and total leap of faith, to step outside of our comfort zone and navigate an entire new direction in life that has the incredible potential to positively impact others.

Yup, we might even end up cutting down corn crops in the middle of Iowa to build a gosh damn baseball field, but if we ever have any doubts about listening to the almighty universe, all we have to do is fire on Field Of Dreams and let it remind us…

“If we build it, they will come.” 

As Ray Kinsella would tell you, the universe is always speaking, but it’s up to us whether or not we want to listen.
