The Explosive Power of Passion

Less than 3% of the world’s population are living on purpose, yet to do so is easier then everyone seems to think.

Human beings are capable of incredible things when their ‘why’ becomes big enough. Your purpose will allow you to bring a massive ‘why’ to every area of your life.

“Your ‘why’ is your only true source of power.”

Most people think of “finding your purpose” or “doing what you love” as a nice-to-have or something that is only good for a warm and fuzzy feeling. However, after 6,000 one-on-one coaching sessions I believe it’s a critical difference between success and a life of frustration.
Are you unsure of what your purpose is?

Most people I speak to don’t have a clear purpose. But the people that invest some time clarifying their purpose will experience the unique mixture of relief and joy that living on purpose brings.

The reason having a purpose is so important is because it gives meaning to everything you do in life. The funny thing about human beings is we are meaning making creatures and therefore we need to put meaning into the tasks that we are doing in order to remain motivated and enthusiastic about what we are creating.

A famous Mexican Shaman by the name of Don Juan, once said:

“For me there is only the travelling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel, looking, looking breathlessly.”

7 Reasons To Find And Live Your Life On Purpose

1. Unlimited flow of drive and energy – Instead of feeling tired and stressed, your purpose charges you with energy meaning each days is far more enjoyable.

2. Meaning and fulfilment – When you start living a life of purpose, everyday things you see, touch and do come alive with meaning and fulfilment. This experience you get is simply incomparable.

3. Easy Decision Making – You will know what’s in alignment with your purpose which means you can say NO in 2 seconds or say YES and have confidence you made the right decision.

4. Financial Success – Your passion and persistence for doing what you love will ensure you are successful at it.

5. Happiness – When you are doing what you were put here to do, you are HAPPY. Yes, times can get hard, but you will be happy because you are doing what you were designed to do.

6. Self-confidence – When you know who you are in this world and where you are headed, increased well being and confidence are natural symptoms.

7. Inspiring Others – Your friends, family and everybody you connect with will be inspired. They will come to you with questions and you will have the opportunity to help them.

7 Steps to Discovering Your Life Purpose

Whatever you are do in life make sure it has heart, and you can’t find something that has heart until you give it meaning. So we must seek to find something to give it meaning and this is where your purpose comes in.

There is a lot of mystery and mixed messages that surround connecting with your true purpose. So I have given you these practical steps to use:

1. Write down what you love doing or the ideal career you would do if money wasn’t important.

2. Now ask yourself the following 4 questions relating to this activity or career and write the answers down in bullet point form:

a. What does this activity/career mean to me?
b. Why is this important to me?
c. What are the consequences of not doing that?
d. Why do I bother doing/becoming this activity/career?

3. Read out loud all of the answers you have written to these questions

4. Connect to your heart by placing your awareness into your chest and answer this question, “If I were the only person on planet earth and the planet needed nothing from me what would me purpose in life be?”

5. Write down every word and phrase that comes up from your heart no matter how weird it sounds

6. Look over the answers to this question and circle the three that make you feel the most expansive, excited or just plain ‘good’

7. With the words you have circled go ahead and create a simple sentence that sums up all the words/phrases starting with the word ‘to’.

Here are some examples:

Circled words: Passion, freedom, living free.
Purpose created: To live with passion and freedom

Circled words
: Play, have fun, life is a game
Purpose created: To enjoy playing the game of life

Circled words
: Inspire and empower, discover new things, excitement
Purpose created: To inspire and empower by discovering new learning’s with excitement

The Whole World Awaits You To Live On Purpose

Whether you are born with a purpose or believe you had a contract of some description set up before you came here, or whatever it is that you subscribe to, at the end of the day a purpose is best described as finding the ultimate sentence to sum up every action that you are going to take from this day forward.

So that when you wake up in the morning you can say I’m divinely inspired by my purpose because I’m doing xyz.

Then EVERYTHING you do can be justified by, related to or infused with your purpose. Ask yourself: “Does this next activity support my life purpose in any way, shape or form?” If the answer is ‘no’ then you focus on something else.

All of a sudden your time management becomes a lot more efficient because you can start to look at activities, proposals and other things that people are coming to you with through the eyes of someone on purpose.

You then respond to requests simply by saying, “you know what, none of that aligns with my purpose!” This will allow you to make decisions instantly, without any guilt, without even thinking about anything again, without any sense of needing to review anything – because straight away you will know whether it resonates with your purpose or not.

Once you have found your purpose then allow yourself the freedom to change it as you evolve. You may move through different values systems where the words you used no longer have the same feel as they use to.

You may hear words or someone else’s purpose and find that it resonates more with who you are now. In which case just adapt and evolve your purpose to suit.

Flexibility is the key to allowing yourself to change for good.

I know you are busy. But making progress in the wrong direction is not progress. So please click here to find out more about the “5 Pillars of Purpose” seminar in Sydney now and I look forward to seeing you there.
