All day we get things done, cross off the to do list – to be repeated the next day. But have you ever thought about those who turn up daily with unusually high amounts of energy, optimism, self-discipline, persistence and often courage?
These people think, talk, walk and act differently – they have conviction. Their difference is they have discovered their purpose and this resoluteness is driving them further and faster.
Find your true path
What drives you? What’s your compelling reason – the why you do what you do? It’s a BIG question and one that often gets put in the too hard basket.
The first step to discovering your true path is asking a few questions:
* What is really important to you?
* How would you spend your days if you had financial freedom?
* What gets your heart racing with excitement – what’s your passion?
* What do others ask your advice on and compliment you for?
* If today were your last day on earth – what would you do?
Now head this up “My Values List” and maybe even read it every morning. When we focus on what we value and have a purpose each day we are moving ahead in a valued direction. So rather than just getting things done – we are getting the things done that really matter.
The humble bee – whose purpose is the simple act of pollinating plants by collecting nectar, has a BIG purpose. Without this tiny creature we would starve. The food we need is a result of the hard, purposeful work of these insects. No pollination – no more plants, no plants and the animal kingdom collapses – that’s a pretty BIG purpose I’d say!
Like the bee you too can live with purpose and have an important place in the world. Let’s never undervalue the power of one individual, as one little bee has a huge impact on the world – so do you!
We all have a BIG purpose – sometimes it’s just waiting to be discovered!
