How To Know It's Time You Leveled Up!
Honestly, I'm comfortable. I like my life. Why should I step up a level? What about you? Is it time you stepped up? Or perhaps you're comfortable where you are? The thing is, when it's time to level up you can either step up and take on the challenge, or you can try to stay where you are, but be warned... there are consequences! This is how it works... Imagine your life is a mountain that has a windy road traveling up and up. There are trees blocking the view most of the time
Are You Enough, Really?
You may fake it well on the surface, but I know you worry about whether you know enough, whether you are good enough, whether you are special enough, whether what you have to offer is valuable enough? I know you worry about how much better 'everyone else' does things. I know you worry that what you have to offer isn't unique enough. When you feel you aren't enough, that you're lacking in some way, it makes you either a stressed-out workaholic or too fearful to take any real a
Your Personal Road Map Is At Your Fingertips
Sometimes don't you just wish someone would hand you a road map that says "do this", "go there", "follow these guidelines and everything will work out for the best"? A perfect road map that was completely personal to you, one that gave you the plan, allowed you to have freedom of choice while still helping you make choices that served you well, the right choices for you... Imagine how it would feel to know exactly what drives you, what causes you to self-sabotage your own dr
Struggling to See Your Path Ahead?
Are you struggling to see the right way ahead for you? If you're anything like me you'd so much prefer to know where you are going and how you are going to get there. Pity life doesn't work like that! Darn. Lol! We keep seeking clarity. We keep wanting to know. We try to understand. We keep slipping into thinking, thinking mode. No surprise really given that our education focuses on our thinking skills, maybe a little on our creative skills but definitely not on our e
Navigating Life with Your Personal Compass
We consistently seek answers from the outside world, to what is bothering us. We think others know more than we do. They do, about themselves, not you. If you want guidance that is completely and specifically about you and only you, look down at your hands. In your hands you hold the broad strokes map to your life and the compass that shows you the best way for you to live a happy, meaningful and successful life; a life that not only satisfies your real world desires but also
You're leaving holes in the World Tapestry
So you think what you do with your life doesn't matter; it's your life so if you make a difference it's your choice, and if you do very little and simply live to exist and get through your life that's your choice too? You know, that is true. It is your choice. However, I think there is something you need to know... what you do has a ripple effect, first on those around you and then as they're affected so they affect others and so on. If you want to wallow in your "I'm not goo
#5 Life Purpose: Permission to be Me!
To get that sense of satisfaction that comes from living or fulfilling your Life Purpose you need to grasp one major fact: The first step in experiencing the sense of meaning that comes from living Your Life Purpose is to fully express your true self, regardless of anyone else's expectations. Should I underline the 'regardless of anyone else's expectations'? The problem is we often have a very diminished idea of who we really are, which is why we play small or hide out or g
#3 Life Purpose: Why do I need to know it?
You don't. The truth is many people get through their lives fairly happily without ever finding out what their true Life Purpose is. My father, Jack, is one example. He lived a full life he enjoyed until his health deteriorated. He died two months before his 95th birthday. A life that long would take at least a book to share but just so you can get an impression: From Herefordshire (UK) he went to southern Rhodesia with his 1st wife (he had 3) after serving in WWII, at a time
#2 Life Purpose: Why isn't my passion enough?
Ever gone chasing after what you love only to find yourself losing interest in it after a while, thinking "...this isn't what I expected. Where's the fun?" The problem with not knowing your Life Purpose, what truly fulfils and satisfies you at your deepest level, is that you'll dive deeply into your passion, what fascinates you and excites you, and for a while that enthusiasm will carry you over the icky bits, the challenges along the way, but as time goes on you'll start to
#1 Life Purpose: What is it?
Purpose is our focus, our intention, our reason to do something or act a certain way. When we seek purpose in our lives, we are usually looking for ~ clarity or guidance on our life's direction ~ a reason for our existence that can guide our actions, so we can act with sureness and determination. As a result of immersing myself in fulfilling my own purpose and helping others step into theirs since 2010 I have a slightly different perspective on what our Life Purpose is, and i
