Living With Purpose And Passion

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 193

Are you in tune with your purpose in life? Do you know how to take the best of your talents and put them out there to reap not only rewards for yourself but for those around you on a personal and business level? For many of us the answer to this is 'no'. So what is it that is necessary to put one in touch with their purpose with such a passion that it becomes a fulfilling journey for them?

Your journey has already begun and so has fulfilling your purpose, whether you are aware of it or not. It is when you are aware of it and are able to pursue it with a passion that you begin to enjoy the fulfillment.

Think of the things you love to do. The hours you may spend in pursuits which are now perhaps 'hobbies' but take up every consumable waking hour. That which you love naturally comes easily to you so why not express it out in the world? Often though I have people tell me about what they love to do and then follow it up with the belief that it will not earn them their living or be career-worthy. My answer is always the same....and why not?

Believing you cannot pursue the talents you have and enjoy as past time and turn them into a career is simply a limiting belief. That limiting belief came from somewhere in your background. Who told you that it is not possible to consciously pursue with purpose that which you love? How old were you when you decided that? You will probably find, if you do recall, that it was a long, long time ago. If you overcome this limiting belief you will find your life will be more balanced, filled with a greater zest for living, sense of freedom, purpose and happiness. This in turn will shine in the skill with which you deliver to your clients and translate as passion which will in turn increase your business growth and development. It creates a self-fulfilling circle.

An example of this is the passionate lawyer who fights for her client's cause as if it were her own (we all know the film Erin Brockovich) or the shop assistant whose attitude has somehow mysteriously brightened your day. Both these people have their heart in their work which creates a passion that shines through. They can breathe life into their work and not only reap the financial reward but rewards on other levels.

The truth is that there is no "ideal" career because we live in a communicative society where we are interdependent on each other. No matter what your job you are dependent on a multitude of others in order that you can function. We need our plumbers and our lawyers and our gardeners one just as much as the other. Each of us has a unique role to fulfill and no one else can fulfill your role the way you do. When you realise this and begin to live your purpose by performing your work with passion and using and expanding your talents you will reap the rewards of a relatively stress-free life.

Each of us has the capabilities of doing things in a totally different way to anyone else. The challenge is to discover your "niche" so you can fulfill your greatest potential for happiness. If you live contrary to your niche, you will become depleted on all levels - energy wise, mentally, emotionally and physically and there will always be that feeling that you are missing out on something in life. Such underlying feelings increase our stress levels and lead to anxiety, depression or both which in turn lead to other illness.

Illness is always a sign we are not following our correct path. It's a sign we are not as connected as we could be. If we act on these signs and open ourselves up to other possibilities we can begin to make the changes needed to heal and understand better our purpose which will fill the void. An interesting exercise is to imagine you have all the money you have ever wanted in life, and ask yourself the question about what you would do. If you would still follow the same career then you have found your niche and purpose. True, you may first take a huge holiday but what would you do after that? After you have lived it up a little and bought the new house, the new car etc what would you do? Would you still go back to the same career?

When connected to your purpose your work and you will be more in sync and you will be at your fullest potential, energised and living with passion!
