The clearer and more meaningful your purpose the greater will be your direction and feelings of inspiration for life. People who are inspired and committed to fulfilling their dreams grow, while those who do not, tend to decay mentally, emotionally, and physically. In other words, if you’re not fulfilling your life’s mission and doing what you love and loving what you do, then you are not really planning to live an inspired life. You are simply living a quiet life of desperation.
The first step towards discovering your purpose is making the decision of what you would love to be, do and have in all areas of your life.
If you knew you couldn’t fail, listened to your heart and soul, and wrote down what you would love to be, do and have in all areas of your life, what would they be? Take the time to write it all down. A short pencil is greater than a long memory. Any detail you leave out is a detail that others may determine. Assume you are the captain of your ship and the master architect of your destiny.
No matter what we decide to be, do and have in our lives, if it comes from a place of inspiration, it does in some way make a difference. Whether it is in business, the arts, at home or a spiritual quest, everything we do is another piece to the puzzle of life and if there are any pieces missing we do not have the whole picture.
The second step is the questions we ask ourselves on a daily basis. To live an inspired rather than a despired life there are skills to be mastered, and one such skill is the ability to ask yourself inspiring, quality questions. The quality of your life is determined by the quality of the questions you ask, so don’t say to yourself, I’d like to do that, but do I have enough money? because it creates a mindset that assumes you can’t. Ask yourself, “How can I do what I love and be magnificently paid for it?” Don’t stop looking until you find the answer, and get an entirely different outcome. Just reframing the statements you make to yourself offers tremendous power. This allows your vacation to become your vocation.
Finally the third step is being grateful for everything in life. Those who count their blessings, who are grateful, have more blessings and fulfillment in life than those who do not. This is a simple principle. Yet it has the power to change your life. Gratitude is the key to growth and fulfillment.
Imagine if you dedicated your life to your dream and let nothing stop you, and I mean nothing. If you let no person on the planet, any challenge, obstacles, fears or emotions stop you from being exactly what you dream about, how could it not come true? There’s nothing more inspiring in my life than to speak to people who are willing and receptive to discovering their magnificent potential.
The pain of regret far outweighs the pain of discipline, so don’t spend your life on little dreams when you have something magnificent inside that is just waiting for expression. Start today to create your master plan for 2011 and beyond so you can live a purposeful and inspired life.
