So often I talk to people who dearly want to follow what makes their heart sing.
They want to know and follow what fulfills them,
They want to know what brings them joy,
What will be the most impactful area of focused energy for them and their business.
“Let’s get you an Impact Compass.”
I then profile them.
We break it down.
We get into the nuts and bolts of quantitative and qualitative data.
We run it through a series of models.
Play with it.
I then put it in front of them.
Most people get it.
Sometimes it’s nothing new and generally a MASSIVE reminder,
BUT with laser specificity that leads to…
An ability to verbalise it,
And most importantly…
The taking of deliberate ACTION,
That both they and I know congruently will ultimately bring FULFILMENT in their business and life.
And then occasionally this happens…
“I can’t do that because…”,
“Should this”, “Have to that”,
“Gotta’ this”, “I mustn’t that”,
“I’ll never be able to…”,
“I am… > insert unreasonable, false self-judgment <“
etc etc etc
EXCUSES – one after the other.
Each one limiting their possibility.
Each one shutting down their potential to attract future opportunities.
Each one separating them further from their True Self – their TRUE POWER.
Judgment, conditions, limiting beliefs.
Family imposed memes of limitation.
It’s right then that I realise this…
If Purpose is simply knowing yourself and following that knowing as a pathway to give and receive greater fulfillment,
Then excuses, conditions and fallacious self-judgment are what separate us from:
Knowing ourselves truly,
Being our authentic self,
Living in alignment with our potential,
Do something impactful with our lives, and
Doing more of what FULFILLS you EVERYDAY!
Excuses and reasons – we’ve all got them.
I’ve let excuses mess with my life before.
I still discover new ones holding me back the very moment I’m ready to expand my creative potential.
We ALL do.
The problem isn’t having them.
The problem is letting them hold you back.
Here’s what I suggest…
Live your life according to the data of what you know to be true for you in YOUR feelings.
Be conscious of other people’s values infiltrating your path of joy and actualisation.
Be careful of collective mistruths disguised as fact becoming your reality.
They’re just BELIEFS.
Listen to YOUR life – what’s important for you to DO, BE and HAVE.
Do what makes you FEEL GOOD.
Do what makes your heart sing.
As much as possible!
No matter what BS the world or your self doubt tells you.
You owe it to your Self.
AND if you don’t know what it is for YOU that’s okay.
All those with purposeful direction in life at some stage didn’t have it.
All those without fulfillment were motivated by the absence of it.
Just make it your first mission – to find it and follow YOUR purpose.
Discover your own formula for fulfillment and meaning.
It could just be the revolution of Self you need.
Or at least the beginning of surfacing what separates you from doing more of what fulfills you everyday.
