Millions of young adults are entering college without a clue to what they’re passionate about or what career path is right for them. Even worse, millions are graduating into the “real” world not knowing where to go or how to apply themselves. Are we simply creating another generation of lost souls or do we want to guide them towards a life of fulfilment ?
How do we prepare them for living a purposeful life ? How do we help them pave their own unique path ?
Discovering and realizing their own strengths and skill sets is a great start, but you know what’s even better ?
For young adults who are consciously awakening to their life’s purpose, a soul awakening needs to happen first. One that requires harnessing the intuitive mind.
The most important skill set is the ability to listen to one’s self. The silent voice that connects you to your DIVINE truth. Practicing and trusting and ACTING in alignment with this deeper voice – what we commonly refer to as intuition – is where the true POWER lies.
Today I speak with Jake Heilbrunn, a passionate speaker, lifestyle blogger and the author of Off the Beaten Trail – an inspiring memoir about his journey leaving college and solo backpacking through Central America at the age of 18! Jake is dedicated to empowering young adults to live a life of purpose and fulfilment. Jake has been featured in multiple large publications including Psychology Today, Thought Catalog and The San Diego Union Tribune.
Suffering from anxiety, depression and a chronic skin condition, Jake made the decision to leave college and follow his heart on a solo backpacking journey through Central America with no phone or knowledge of Spanish. What he discovered was nothing short of majestic.
It’s a beautifully written book about the struggles we all face at the crossroads in life. Do we listen and heed the intuitive voice from within or do we let the echoes of doubt and fear keep us confined into complacency. Jake’s memoir gives us hope that whatever happens, trust that the soul is always there to guide you. Listen to the voice when it speaks to you. Act on the opportunity when it presents to you. It is a story about the pilgrimage we all need to take within.
