Are you ready to take your life to the next level? Terrific! The formulas included in this article will help you start living a purpose-filled life.
Connect your Dreams
Your most compelling dream gives your life purpose. Without purpose, people drift and dream without making their dreams reality.
Don’t just climb a fantasy mountain to say you did, climb the mountain that aligns with who you really are.
Connect your dreams with your life purpose and innovative ideas will appear, as if by magic, for your most difficult doubts. Whether you’re just beginning to get an idea of what you want or if you’re stuck, let’s ignite your passion by clarifying your dream.
Formula to connect your dreams: Clarify your dreams + connect dreams with life purpose = purpose-filled life.
Clarify your Dream
It’s not enough to dream about owning that little book shop or taking a six-week vacation in your own cottage by the seashore, it is necessary to obtain a clear picture of what you want. This step may seem silly, but it is vital.
Successful dreamers start with questions. (Don’t pose “yes” or “no” questions.) Ask open-ended questions, which will tap into your intuition and imagination. For example, “If I could do anything, what would make me the most fulfilled?” “If funds were available and I had time to pursue my dream, what would I do?” “How can I do more of what I’m passionate about in my everyday life?” “If I really believed in my dream what would I do or change?”
At the top a blank page, write – “My Dream Description”.
At the bottom of the page write – “Go for it”.
Describe your dream in great detail. Put your most vivid energy into clarifying your dream.
Formula for making dreams a reality: Believe in yourself + Act on your beliefs = purpose-filled life.
Determine your Purpose-filled Life
The journey of self-discovery can be a hard road or an easy one. Please…take advantage of what I have learned on my journey. The following is the formula of formulas:
Finding your talent + offering it to other people = your purpose-filled life.
Do not underestimate your worth. Your talent, or spiritual gift, may seem small in your eyes. It’s not! When you pass your talent along to others, it grows exponentially to the point of explosion.
If you are stingy with your talent and use it only to promote personal gain, your journey to self-discovery will be strewn with rocks and detours.
Now, let’s write a simple mission statement. Don’t rush. This is a statement you will adopt as your creed.
To begin, just write a one-line sentence that sums up who you choose to be. Here is an example: “I am a student of life.”
As you continue exploring and refining your spiritual gift/talent, you can refine the purpose-filled life statement. For instance, “I am a student of life. I explore life through my music and share it with other people on a willing basis.”
Learning to Add and Subtract
Are you constantly racing against clock time? Do you take on more projects than you can possibly handle? Are you happiest when you unleash your passion for writing, public speaking or product design?
Use this formula in learning to add and subtract: Subtracting one thing you don’t like to do + adding one thing that feeds your passion = your purpose-filled life.
At the top of a blank page, write: “This week I subtract _________________.”
At the top of the next blank page, write, “This week I add ________________.”
By this point, you have some idea of your dream and how to share it with other people. Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?
Of course it’s not easy or everybody on the planet would be living their purpose-filled life. Whatever your dream, obstacles will greet and delay you.
One universal dream is to write a book. Common obstacles to writing a book are can’t type, afraid of using computers, not good with punctuation or not organized.
When education is essential to manifest your dream, you must consider: taking a class, finding a mentor or hiring help.
Formula for clearing obstacles: Identify obstacles delaying your dream + find people to teach you or do it for you = your purpose-filled life.
All the formulas will fail when negative circumstances intervene. For example, you scheduled a computer session with a teacher, who failed to show up. The next person you located got a long term illness. And, so on. When circumstances like these continue to intervene, it is human nature to be disappointed.
Be mindful: Just because attempts fail does not mean you failed. Start networking with friends and co-workers and obtain names of several people who can help you. Then, you won’t feel desperate when one person fails to honor their commitment.
Formulas for Living your Purpose-filled Life
Life without purpose is bland. When you are ready, work the formulas for living your purpose-filled life and they will work for you.
