I used to be a high achiever.
I thought that getting good grades, going to University to get a good job was what you were suppose to do. Even though I knew that I wanted to feel fulfilled by my work I also wanted to have a certain quality of life to live without struggle. So the pursuit of my ideal career began.
I didn’t find it. It doesn’t exist.
Because I am an entrepreneur.
I still am a high achiever but in a different way. Being an entrepreneur requires me to be so in order to run a business AND create.
This requires me to be at MY BEST. My business is an extension of WHO I AM, so my taking care of ME on all levels and in all areas is CRITICAL to my success.
EVERY MORNING I spend as much time as I have available getting clear on exactly WHAT I want to create in my LIFE and BUSINESS and setting my INTENTIONS for THE DAY.
I do NOT take ACTION until I do.
To ensure that my desires and intentions come from a place of AUTHENTICITY, the first thing I do EVERY morning is BE STILL.
I become CENTRED in MY TRUTH, I HEAR my heart’s wisdom and with practise I am learning to RECEIVE and TRUST it.
Everything else rolls from here. ANYTHING I need TO DO* is prioritised according to my DESIRED RESULTS which are based on my inner wisdom.
The GO comes from STILLNESS.
When you operate in life from here you are 100% on purpose.
You do not get distracted by yourself (that was me!), anyone or anything else. You are FOCUSSED, you are DRIVEN and you are on a MISSION! But you are also able to be more present and enjoy the journey because you feel FULFILLED.
As a mother I know it is hard to find time, to MAKE time, for YOU. Whether you work or not there is ALWAYS so much TO DO.
It goes without saying but you need to MAKE TIME.
If you have a passion or purpose (or lots!) inside of you that you are denying or playing small you MUST allow it/them OUT!
You do not need to know WHAT it is exactly but if you have the FEELING, the DESIRE, the PULL, the INNER KNOWING that THERE IS MORE then you have a PURPOSE that is YOUR DUTY to fulfil.
No valid reason is an excuse not to.
Not one. There is no when I am…. or when I have… time/money/ideas/discipline/support etc.
I say that with LOVE and from experience.
Fulfilling your purpose comes from SMALL daily actions based ON YOUR BIGGEST DESIRED RESULTS and DOING WHAT YOU LOVE.
You need to KNOW them, OWN them and actually DO them.
Make your mission your reality. Start TODAY then every day after that.
(*As a side note: the TO DO List rarely gets a look in!).
P.S. If you want TO GO ON PURPOSE then you need to heal your emotional wounds stopping you from hearing, trusting and acting on YOUR WISDOM.
