I was speaking with a friend the other day that owns a garage door repair business about what makes people truly successful, what does it mean when people talk about their “life purpose” or what does it mean when people speak about finding that life purpose in life?
To me life purpose is become a person that has achieved unlimited possibilities, a person that can inspire others to live their dreams, my life purpose is to live in more gratitude everyday. To be grateful for life more and more everyday and live in self-acceptance more and more.
What does it take to become that person that is always in self-acceptance the one that realizes you can’t change the past or the future so you just choose to accept everyday and everything in it the good, the bad and neutral. What if we could live in that space but still go out in the world and be a high producer, meaning creating lots of value in the world and getting paid handsomely for it in return. What does that kind of life mean or feel to you, we’re all in this thing together but we all look to the other for answers. What if we already had the potential within us that was capable of so much more.
Because it is the things we tell ourselves everyday that determines the type of person we become tomorrow, so I always journal my goals and keep telling myself what is my purpose, why do I want all those things, why do I want to reach $10,000 a month. I want to hire a team, I want to support another person and help them achieve their goals. I want to support my family and my grandparents. I need to get to $20,000 revenue per month as soon as possible.
My life purpose is to completely transform myself into someone that is worthy of respect & admiration. My life purpose is to be able to help those in need. My life purpose is to live at the highest level spiritually and highest level of happiness and teach others how to do the same. My life purpose is unconditional love.
These are things we don’t regularly talk about and its not something people even aspire to. They think their life purpose is to be that rockstar or celebrity status, but what if our true life purpose wasn’t something that we go out and get externally from us but something we get or cultivate inside us.
When Warren Buffet was asked what he feels is the most powerful lesson in his life he answered “unconditional love” and this is someone that is worth billions, but he is telling us its not the money fame or glory but a quality within that we all have access to. And i thought that was quite profound.
