I noticed my life was very similar to zombies, especially in the early morning (I’m usually so tired, that I am unconsciously moving from one destination to the other). Every day was the same routine, and every day I became more dissatisfied about how I spent the last 24 hours of the previous day. I knew it was time for a transition.
A zombie, according to the online dictionary, is “a person who is or appears lifeless, apathetic, or completely unresponsive to their surroundings.” That was me; lifeless, apathetic, and unresponsive to my surroundings. I knew it was time for a change. I knew it was time to do work that ignites my passion.
Transitioning from a Zombie to a Fearless Leader
Zombie living is wasteful. You have gifts and passions that should be shared with the world. You have to be intentional with every decision you make. You also have to be conscious of everything you do. Zombies are only consumers, not givers. If your only desire is to only consume, you will live an unfilled life.
I am currently in my transition from a zombie to a fearless leader; breaking old habits, making intentional decisions, and walking in my purpose. It’s time to start living and claiming a better lifestyle. If you are like me and you noticed life is becoming a bit of a drag, and you are not living to fulfill your purpose, here’s what you can do:
- Pause – Take a break from your normal routine. Spend some time with God asking Him what He has called you do. Quiet time plays an essential role in finding your purpose.
- Reflect – Reflection is one of my favorite things to do. I reflect on the past events of my life that have brought me the most joy. Reflect on what God has revealed to you during your time with Him; reflect on the lives of people in the Bible who were able to complete the mission God gave to them.
- Act – The worse thing we can do is to have God give us the steps we need to take and not act on them. Put His direction into ACTION. The sooner you act, the sooner you can stop living a zombie life and live a life of fulfillment.
