One of the best ways to quit complaining about the multitude of frustrations that can arise each day in our little lives is to stop our complaints and replace them with a BIG IDEA!
Did you know that our complaints are often a sign of emptiness and a lack of meaning in our lives? I found that the best way to fill up my reservoir of meaning is to put my life at the service of something bigger than myself.
Personally, I find that I am constantly seeking to put myself in situations where I have to grow and step out of my comfort zone to reveal myself and succeed in accomplishing something big in my own eyes.
I really have a deep desire to devote my life exploring my talents, contribute and make a difference (I can assure you that I also have my lot of little insidious voices in my head that tell me I am not capable or smart enough!)
When this BIG IDEA takes all the room in our lives, our little worries resolve themselves on their own on the way and our little complaints become very futile and quite polluting.
The idea is not to spend our days trying to get rid of our frustrations or solve our problems but rather to give ourselves the permission and allow to bring to life our big idea. To dare take some steps on a project that is bigger than we are, empowers us, gives us hope, energy and meaning. By giving life to our big idea we might and we will encounter some frustrations and some obstacles but at least those are worth our lives.

So, what’s your BIG IDEA ?
