You are meant for something bigger
and greater and you have always known it..
“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the
universe to unfold. That is how important you
are!” ~ Eckhart Tolle
I’ve known since I was very young that I was
destined for big things. I mean really. The first
thing I knew I wanted to be when I grew up was the
Easter Bunny. And I’m Jewish. Now as you cut
through your giggles, here’s what I’m pretty sure
I actually meant by that — I knew from very early
on that societal constraints, “shoulds”, and rules
didn’t really mean anything. I could be and do
anything I wanted.
And then I found road blocks; or maybe just the
speed bumps of life. I kept reaching for more, but
encountered fear, doubt, challenging situations,
and naysayers. Thankfully, I never stopped
believing. I always knew it was possible to live
into the vastness of my visions, and become as big
as I wanted. It’s taken time to align the my
beliefs with this truth inside of me so that I
could live into my knowing, but it’s been worth
And I’m definitely not alone. This beautiful
planet is crawling with those of us who want to
make a difference; who know we are capable of
anything. Some of us are there living it fully,
some are in the midst of the dance of taking a few
steps forward and a couple of steps back (hint:
good old self sabotage; something I know well),
and others are just beginning to wake up to the
realization that this knowing has been inside of
them all along, and it’s time to do something
about it. But no matter where you are, fear not.
Often it’s just the stuff we think gets in our way
that’s actually supporting us in getting there!
So, to prove it to you, I’ve compiled 8 signs that
point out that likelihood that you’re probably
meant for something bigger; and that you’re
destined to get there.
1. You suck at working for other people.
You’re a born leader and you know it. Or maybe you
don’t know it. But either way, you’re just NOT
into doing things that aren’t catalyzing big
change. You feel stuck working for others. You
want freedom, flexibility, creativity, and
expansion, and you just don’t feel you can fully
achieve that while working for someone else. You
know that your vision is worth something, and that
getting to apply ALL of your gifts is the only way
you’ll be fully satisfied.
2. You tend to put things off until you’re really
So you call yourself a procrastinator. There is
such a thing as self sabotaging procrastination,
but if you’re meant for something bigger (which,
if you’re reading this, I have a sneaking
suspicion you are), there will also be times when
you believe you must get something done because
that’s what you think is going to get you from
point A to point B. But what if you actually
thrive off of inspiration, versus obligation?You
deserve to be able to evaluate which is true for
you in each moment. Is fear holding you back from
chipping away at your to-do list? Or is it because
you’re lacking inspiration. If it’s the latter,
trust that doing exactly what you’re inspired to
do is leading you to where you need to be. Often
that inspiration knows more than we do about
what’s really possible.
3. As a kid you thought adults who wore suits and
went off to work were crazy.
You’ve always known somewhere deep within you that
there was more to life than living a
cookie-cutter, safe, pragmatic lifestyle. You knew
you could have a bigger impact on the world if you
did it your way, and that your way would involve
more freedom and flexibility than those crazy
adult-types had. And now, whether you’ve fully
achieved it yet or not, you know that that feeling
you had as a kid is utterly true. You’ve witnessed
and felt what it’s like to live just as much on
purpose in your flip flops as you have your
4. You love what you do so much you’d do it for
Here’s the irony – you deserve to know your value,
and the more you begin to charge your full value
for the contribution you’re making to the world,
the more value those you serve will actually
receive. However, you know you’re on purpose and
meant to do big things when you love what you do
so much that while you’re doing it money is not
even on your mind.
5. You’re an idealist. You see the world at its
best, and will stop at nothing to get there.
When I was a kid I used to get called an
“idealist” all the time. At first I thought it was
a compliment. I’d think “yeah that’s right, it is
possible for the world to be that loving and
amazing”. Then, toward early adulthood I began to
get triggered by the word, as if people were
saying that I couldn’t actually achieve that; that
the world wasn’t actually supposed to be the
amazing place I knew it could be. Now, I could
care less what people think or call me. My name is
Jordanna, and I am an idealist. By living in my
own little world of my vision and my creations, my
personal world often actually appears as “ideal”
as I know one day the entire world can be. So
really, who cares what’s true and what’s not if
I’m having fun and serving others while doing it?
Being an idealist doesn’t make you crazy, it makes
you a creator.
6. You can’t always say how you know things, but
sometimes you just “know”.
Visionaries don’t usually get their visions from
what’s outside of them or from what the world
tells them they should create. They get their
visions from an internal drive to create what
feels right for them. That “knowing” of what they
need to create goes hand in hand with a knowing of
all sorts of things. Call it intuition, call it
gut feeling, call it spidey senses. If you are
meant for something bigger in this world, that
knowing will keep speaking up and asking you for
what it wants. So really, creating big things is
not an option when it’s your destiny. At least,
that’s what I’m pretty sure your spidey senses
would tell you.
7. You feel things. Big time.
Most of the clients I work with you are meant for
big things in the world tend to feel pretty
deeply. You may not have been taught that it’s
okay to feel. You may have been taught, in fact,
that your feelings will get in the way of being
awesome. Well, let’s reframe that. Sometimes our
feelings are our TRUTH. Your ability to be big,
and contribute to the world in a huge way is
dependent upon your truth. So allow your feelings
to show up, and to guide you to where you need to
be. Your creations depend upon it.
8. You’re more frustrated by having too many
ideas than you are by not having any at all.
You tend to get inspired easily. In fact, the more
awesome your life becomes, the more inspired YOU
become. But sometimes it’s a bit of a conundrum.
You know you’re meant to create big things, but if
you’re not careful you can allow yourself to get
stopped up by ALL of the things you want to
create, without actually getting anything done.
Don’t let this get to you. Be grateful that you’re
so full of awesome ideas. If you’re not sure where
to start or what to focus on, call upon some
support. But don’t let your plethora of visions
within your vision get in the way.
And here’s the caveat, I actually believe that
we’re all meant for big things if we allow
ourselves to listen to the stirring of our soul.
When we let go of “perfect timing”, and recognize
that “too late” does not exist, it becomes easier
to allow that stirring to become a rising up of
