Follow Your Bliss

I loved this quote. It reminds me of Joseph Campbell who said, “If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.”

He continues with, “If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

In my practice, I help clients to identify what bliss means to them, the “stuck points” (aka negative beliefs) that has held them back and strategies to talk back to the inner bully that prefers safety and security over the unknown. The unknown can be scary, but regret is scarier.

What’s your bliss?
