I have been quite frustrated lately as I keep noticing people around me with great potential just squandering away their lives. While I do consider myself to be quite lethargic, lazy and very much a dreamer with my head in the clouds I have always had a PURPOSE DRIVEN mindset. I enjoy days of no plans just hanging out with my family on top of the mountain, taking multiple long, warm baths a day and napping often as well. HOWEVER, when an opportunity presents itself I JUMP ON IT IMMEDIATELY and I don’t quit until it is successful. I have NEVER been late for a show! I have NEVER started a show without taking time to meditate on my PURPOSE and say a prayer! Years ago my wonderful wife pushed me to use the gifts I have been given. See, I can stand up in front of a room of people and cause them to forget about their problems and laugh and enjoy themselves for as long as they are there. I also have a knack for adding a short, sweet pep talk that increases their beliefs in their own God-given minds and abilities…..THAT IS MY PURPOSE! That is why I do my show, that is why I get out of bed in the morning. Everyday I think about how I can be used TODAY to positively influence the people I come in contact with.
WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE? If you wake up thinking of how to sell more cars or how to work more hours you will be very unhappy for sure. If you wake up focused on how to use YOUR INDIVIDUAL TALENTS to better the world and the people in it and have faith, the money will come to you in due time. That old saying “Do what you love and you will never know a days work” is true, I can attest to that!
Maybe your good at introducing people to nature (Check out Vesna and Erik at http://awalkinthewoods.com/ ), or Maybe you enjoy demonstrating the Magic of living your dreams (Check out Terry with his show in Pigeon Forge http://www.terryevanswood.com/ ) These folks are living their purpose and I promise it didn’t happen over night it took some time and some rejection and some dreaming but in the end they are making a difference and loving every minute of it.
SO HOW DO I START? easy! You get alone and relaxed and you close your eyes and you dream! You think of what gifts you have and how they could help others and when you have pinpointed those gifts you start daydreaming of how they can be put into action. And last but not least you go out into this great big world and you have faith that doors will be opened unto you and when they open……You simply walk through! That’s EXACTLY what I did and still do. It has worked and It will work for you too.
I believe in you if you believe in yourself.
