Without accountability, the vast majority of people will only do what is necessary to get by. We need somebody to remind us to set goals and stay on task until to job is done. Not only that, the more freedom and access you have, the easier it is for you to slip into "cruise mode" and do the bare minimum.
But you know it's wrong, not morally-speaking, but in terms of your own integrity. At the deepest level of your consciousness, you KNOW that you have not come into the world to be average. You chose a divine mission and agreed to deliver upon the Ancestral Promise that was made many generations ago. Let's consider that Ifa says:
It is the particular errand they sent someone that one delivers
One must not refuse to do the work someone give you to do
One does not wake up in the morning
And refuse the errands of ones creator
These were Ifa’s declarations to Oyi
When going to heaven
He sent Ikin to Ado land
He sent Ope, the Palm tree, to Igeti the home of his father
He said they should go and help him take care of the place.

The hero's journey represents the quest to discover and master your identity, which is synonymous with destiny. The process of becoming a hero then, is what we call Ijo L'aiye, the journey of life. Each segment of the journey is an invitation to show up more fully and demonstrate your ability to focus relentlessly and perform effortlessly. Can you be unwavering in your purpose?
