IF YOURE NOT CURRENTLY LIVING YOUR *HIGHEST* PURPOSE IN LIFE + 7 TRICKS FOR FIXING THAT

IF YOURE NOT CURRENTLY LIVING YOUR *HIGHEST* PURPOSE IN LIFE . . . . . . .

Here are 7 ways to tell

-1

Youre Not Waking Up Excited In The Morning

If youre not excited (or at least enthusiastic) in the morning then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If youre waking up a couple of days each week with a monotonous feeling of having to do this again today thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, you wake up excited in the morning because a personally exciting life awaits you. For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today? And whenever the answer has been No for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. -Steve Jobs

You Have Really High Highs & Really Low Lows

If you cant seem to break the phenomenon of feeling absolutely phenomenal for a few days, but then kind of crappy afterwords then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If you can notice a pattern of thinking how amazing life is one week, and how shitty it is the next thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, you still have the really high highs but you also have much higher lows (and your happiness becomes sustainable).you wake up excited in the morning because a personally exciting life awaits you.

Id always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed. I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life. -Dan Millman

Your Life Isnt Entirely Fulfilling You Anymore

If despite knowing that you have SO much to be gratfeul for, deep inside theres a feeling that somethings missing in your life- then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If youre doing a lot of the things that society suggests are right, but you still feel that something is wrong thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, youre fulfilled because youre living a life engulfed in personal meaning. Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. -Helen Keller

Youre Surrounded By People Who Are Bringing You Down

If you find yourself surrounded by people who are bitching, nagging, criticizing, complaining, and condemning then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If you dont have a group of people in your life whose qualities you admire thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, youre spending the majority of your time with people who inspire, empower, and encourage you to be a better person. Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. -Helen Keller

Youre Ignoring Your Dreams Because Youre Scared To Move On

If a couple times each month you start to fantasize about what you would do if you had more free time then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If there are a ton of things youd rather be doing with your life, but havent yet found a way to muster up the courage and tell your family and friends thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, youre spending your time doing the things that you love most in life (whether your family and friends understand/agree with your or not). If you deliberately plan on being less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that youll be unhappy for the rest of your life. -Abraham Maslow

Youre Working In A Job That Depletes You Of Energy

If the primary purpose of your job is to get a paycheck and theres not much personal meaning in what you do then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If youre counting the days until the next three-day weekend or sixday vacation thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, you dont just have a job but you have a calling (one of the many differences between a job and a calling is that a job depletes you and a calling energizes you). The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both. -Buddha

You Feel Stuck In The Rat Race But Dont Know The Next Step

If youre in a perpetual state of thinking that youll be happier when the next good thing happens and youre not enjoying the journey then youre most likely not living your highest purpose. If youre so focused on getting there that youve accepted being submerged in stress and anxiety as normal thats probably a sign that youre off purpose. When youre Living On Purpose, youve embraced that the priceless pleasure of life comes from enjoying the journey on your way to a destination deemed meaningful. For a master, the rewards gained along the way are fine, but they are not the main reason for the journey. Ultimately the master and the masters path are one. And if the traveler is fortunate that is, if the path is complex and profound enough the destination is two miles farther away for every mile he or she travels. -George Leonard

Here are 7 tricks and tips


YOU CAN USE TO HELP YOU FIND YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE . . . . . . .

Focus Primarily On Intrinsic Motivations

Untold Truth: As privileged and lucky as we are, society sets us up for failure because it motivates us with extrinsic incentives like fame, wealth, and beauty. Chasing these things are flashy and fun for a short time but ultimately unfulfilling. Theyre like drinking salt-water when youre thristy. What To Do: To remove those low low feelings, focus on intrinsic incentives like relationships, contribution, and personal growth. Create a life around them and youll be super On Purpose. Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because its only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. -Barack Obama

Live In Integrity With Your Values

Untold Truth: If you want to find and live your purpose, youre gonna need to know what you stand for. Ive found that the best way to know what you stand for is to get clarity on what it is that you value. Whats important to you? What do you give a shit about? If you were running for the toilet and had no time to think, could you tell me what your top five values are without an accident?

What To Do: To help find your values, question thing. Try stuff out. Experiment. Do the opposite of what you were told. Step outside of the box. CRACK YOUR COMFORT ZONE! And then *reflect on whats important to you.* Once you know whats important to you, the more that you act in accordance with those values, the better youre gonna feel about yourself.

Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because its only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. -Barack Obama

Become Comfortable With Feeling Uncomfortable

Untold Truth: Our lives are limited within the confines of our comfort zone. When we get out of our comfort zone, and become uncomfortable, WE WIN LIFE! The cool thing about comfort zones is that when we step out of them, they grow! Thats right by being momentarily uncomfortable, we own our fear, and in the future, the things that scared us arent so intimidating anymore. If you want to find your purpose, youre probably going to have to do things that youve never done before and in order to do them, youre going to need to get outside of your comfort zone. What To Do: Feel that discomfort, and despite its presence, go do what you need to do. The more you do that, the less uncomfortable youll feel in the future. Make it a game to become comfortable being uncomfortable and youll find your purpose much sooner. Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because its only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. -Barack Obama

Embark On The Heros Journey

Untold Truth: This Heros Journey is the a common thread amongst all great characters (and stories) in life. Your soul is calling to you. Its tryna tell you that you have a unique path that only you can take. Your mind can rationalize all sorts of award winning reasons why you shouldnt take the untraveled trail. But to deny that call from your soul is to deny yourself the life that you deserve to live. Its the difference between being fully ALIVE and cruising aimlessly on auto-pilot all your life. What To Do: In order to create an extraordinary life, youre going to need to walk away from what you know. Youre going to have to face your fears, improve your conditioning, and create your own unique path. Youre going to feel scared, excited, and alive! And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. -Anais Nin

Combine Your Strengths With Your Passions

Untold Truth: People who are Living On Purpose are continuously using their strengths while doing work that matters to them on a daily basis. What To Do: Science is suggesting that instead of focusing on your weaknesses, get them to the point when they wont harm you, and then cultivate the crap outta your strengths. This is what will make you extraordinary. Then use your strengths to do things that make you excited and watch a sense of confidence and fulfillment appear within you (and if you mix service to other people in the mix, your purpose will appear before you know it!)

I do not believe that you should devote overly much effort to correcting your weaknesses. Rather, I believe that the highest success in living and the deepest emotional satisfaction comes from building and using your signature strengths. Martin Seligman

Avoid Falling Into The Trap Of Validation

Untold Truth: As a baby, we need love. So from a young age we create images of ourselves, pretending to be what we think other people want us to be. Then we project these images into our relationships and try our best to actually be the images. But of course, we cant ever completely conform to someone elses vision. And this is how inner conflict originates. When people start to feel a discrepancy between the image theyre projecting, and their authentic selves, MAJOR conflict arises within them. What To Do: In order to find and live your purpose, youre gonna need to become indifferent of other peoples opinions of you. This goes for both the good and the bad opinions of other people they can both be used as forms of validation if unchecked. Heres a counter-intuitive tidbit of wisdom: The less you look for other peoples approval, the more of it theyll give to you. It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society. -Jiddu Krishnamurti
