If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
For many of us, we grow up and the most important thing is who we are going to be when we grow up. Then we focus on doing all these things in order to have the stuff that someone who is like who we want to be would have.
Unfortunately for many of us, we focus more on the having than the being. We are designed as human beings, and when we lose sight of that and begin to do things in order to have things, we lose sight of why we are here. Don’t wait to find your purpose…define your purpose. Declare who you are and make what you do the effect of who you are, not just something being done to have certain things.
When what you do is a result of who you are, you will have the things that someone who you declare to be would have. You must be true to your self and aligned with your highest purpose that you define. Ask yourself three questions:
- What comes easy to me, but harder to others?
- What would you do for work for years and years and never have to get paid for it?
- How can you be of service and how can you give back?
When you are true to these answers, you are fulfilled at the highest and most important levels.
While most of us focus on getting out of the rat race, we forget about our grand design which is to love, serve and be happy. But when you focus on loving, serving and being happy, all of your needs seem to take care of themselves and some of your old lower level needs do not exist and your become more aware of who you were really designed to be. When you are in this natural place as most children are, everything you do is play and you are revitalized with a new vigor and curiosity of life.
Stand guard at the door to your mind, because everything begins in thought. Your thoughts will create your emotions, which drive your actions, which produce your results. Surround yourself with positive, empowering people, and structures. You create or allow everything in your life, so put your self at cause for ALL the results in your life. This is not good or bad, it is only feedback. The power in this belief is that if you have created or allowed something in your life and you own that…you can change it also if you choose.
Connect with who you really are, stay true to that no matter what sacrifice you have to make because the universe always pays. The perfection of nature is always at work, so give more, love more and continue to be happy!
