I Don't Want to Fail Again!

  I have some great friends that tell me that they don't want to take the time to try a new program for self development - because they don't want to fail again!

  At first, I didn't understand that idea.  Then I realized that what they were saying was true for a lot of us.  We are cautious because we didn't do well on that diet plan or that chore chart program etc...  We have a fear of not measuring up to the requirements!  Some of us don't even want to start because we have sabotaged ourselves in our minds at other times in our lives.

  I realized what my friends were trying to tell me was that my "Finding Your Purpose" program was another program to fail!  Here is why this program will not let them fail:

  In reality, this program is just a process to help them come to know who they really are - which will help them figure out what their purpose is for this time in their life!.  They could do it on their own by just asking themselves questions - but the blessing of this program is that it asks questions from all different angles -  angles that they may have never thought of before. They could have the help they need to just begin the process of thinking about their lives. So, the program is really just a conduit to facilitate the outcome!

  Another benefit of the program is that it helps them THINK about how to clarify what they want to have happen in their lives and aids them in putting together a plan.  This can all be done in their own way.  But the basic IDEAS and PRINCIPLES are really the key.  These are so important for helping my friends to move forward in becoming whatever they want to become.  They can keep it as simple as they need it to be, and at their own pace, and in their own timing.

  I also realized, that what my friends were saying was that this was too much for them and that they were comparing themselves to the great things that they had seen happen in the lives of other people.  Here is how to truly look at the process of discovering who they are meant to be.

  What finding your purpose in life can do for you:
    1.It helps you have something fun to focus on, because you know it really is what you SHOULD be working on and that can excite you to WANT to do it.
    2.It gives you confidence in whatever you are moving towards.
    3.You find that things pertaining to your purpose, are all-of-a-sudden attracted to you!
    4.You are taking steps forward in your life - no matter how small - and it feels so good just to be moving in a direction that is right for only YOU!

  Having found your purpose allows you to FREE the REAL YOU and what you are meant to be!  It is worth the effort to just take a step forward - for yourself!  You are worth it!!  You can not fail!  It only serves to broaden your perspective, no matter how far through the process that you actually get!  At least you are working on the most important project you have in this life - becoming what you are meant to be.

Time, Time, Choice, Choice

  It is a fact:  we all have 24 hours in a day!  It is also a fact that we are the ones who choose what to do with that 24 hours.  But, you say, that isn't true I have to go to work every day.  I don't exactly choose to do that, I have to do that every day or we are going to be in trouble.  The reality is that even with all of those things we feel we have to do, we do still choose. 

  We can choose to not go to work every day and suffer the consequences or we could choose to not have a job that we have to do every day.  We can choose to come up with a creative new business that will allow us to do "work" when we want to.  We can choose to work a job that fits our purpose better, so we actually want to be there.  We can choose any number of ideas that will create a life we truly desire to have.

  We could choose to eat 3 times a day or 6 times a day.  We could choose to stay up late or get up early.  Traditions and habits pull us in many directions, but we still have the ability to really choose what to do with our hours every day.  We can literally create the day we want to have.

 We can also suffer the consequences of just flippantly doing whatever we desire, without any real thought about what we are putting in our day.  We can just let things happen, but we won't enjoy the consequences of that choice!

  We know that if we had a full schedule for the next week and someone gave us a free vacation to Hawaii, we would find a way to make it happen!  We really do put into our daily hours the things we think are important to us.

  The key here, is that we need to discover what it is that is important to us right now - at this time of our life.  When we know what we are to be doing to enrich our life, finding our true purpose will help us to choose wisely what we do with our time.

 For instance, knowing your purpose will help you if you are a single mom trying to provide for your family. If you decide that you should be spending  more time with your children, you may be able to use the purpose you are focusing on, to create an income.  If you are to be focusing on helping your children to excel in their studies, maybe you could research it out and learn how to help other children as well.  Maybe with what you learn you could provide a service to others that they will pay for!

  This is why it is important to realize that we have 24 hours/day that we choose to do whatever is best  and within the parameters of our purpose picture. Then realizing what our purpose is, can help us make the best choices for ourselves and the people in our home, as far as time and priority go.  We can decide what will give us the most value for the time we are spending doing something..

  Lastly, the best use of our time is to get started in designing our days by taking TIME to find our purpose.  I spent every night for a few weeks really pondering and asking questions about who I really am, what my core values are, what my strengths and weaknesses are and which areas of my life are lopsided or strong.  The patterns I saw as I wrote things down helped me to decide on my main purpose in life at this time.  The uninterrupted time was absolutely life changing!  Now, I can design my days in the way that will really benefit myself and the ones I love!

  Have fun designing your time - making great choices and living a great life!
