Find Your Missing Puzzle Piece To Living A Life Of Purpose

A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.

  – Rosabeth Moss Kanter

When you are living a life on purpose, what does that really mean?  You see yourself on a journey to accomplish something that is important to you.  Say for example that you want to run a marathon.  You set a goal of getting up every morning at 4 AM to run before you go to work.

Your entire life journey ultimately consists of the steps you are taking at this very moment.

  – S. Williams

Now you and I know that there are going to be mornings when you don’t want to get out of bed.  When you promise yourself that you will just sleep in this one time and that you will run when you get home instead.  But of course, when you get home you have so many things to do that evening that you are too tired to run.  When your will power runs dry, what then?

Your actions will always, 100% be congruent with your thinking.  So if you set a goal to run a marathon, and you set up a plan of how much running you must to do in order to complete the marathon – yet you find yourself not getting up at 4 AM as planned, then your thinking is not congruent with your goals.

You have to have a lot of passion for what you are doing because it is so hard… , if you don’t, any rational person would give up.

  – Steve Jobs

You need a change of thinking.  You need a breakthrough.  A breakthrough is a natural result of a shift in your thinking.  You suddenly connect past, present, future into a thought that sheds light on something you never saw before.  When you have a breakthrough it feels as though the DNA in your body has changed every single cell.  Like one moment you knew who you were.  Then the next moment you are someone totally new.  You realize that you can never go back to what you were before.

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.

  – Simon Sinek

Shifting your mindset can create opportunities that you never imagined were possible.  Many times it happens when you run out of ideas.  When you hit the wall.  When you finally let go and let God.  It clarifies and simplifies everything.  It’s like the spotlight appears out of the darkness and shows you the way home.  You become more of who you are supposed to be.

Awareness is not a giver of solace – it is just the opposite.  It is a disturber and an awakener.

  – Robert K Greenleaf

It is kind of funny what happens when you wake up and become aware of how simple life can really be.  You are full of plans to run the marathon.  You are taking action.  Then something happens, and everything changes.  Do you give up?  Do you throw in the towel?  Or do you do something outside the box?  Something risky – something you’ve never tried and aren’t really sure can work?

How can you seek things differently here?  Your next level of success wants to know.

  – Heathere Evans

How does your “WHY” relate to the vision you have created?  Your “WHY” is what creates a compelling vision for your life of purpose.  It will clearly capture and establish an emotional connection to keep you on purpose to your vision.  It gets you up at 4 AM excited to go running, even in the rain or when you are just too tired to even press the snooze button.  Your “WHY” is the means to get you to the end result – running in that marathon.

Success is when reality catches up to your imagination.

  – Simon Sinek

Around 20 years ago, in the month of January, my middle son got engaged.  They set the date to get married in August.  I was so happy for them.  I wanted to pay for their dream honeymoon.  I contacted the travel agent they were working with and got all of the details.  I sat down and planned it out exactly how I could pay for it.

Hold the vision.  Trust the process.

  – Unknown

A couple of weeks later they decided to move the date to May.  I was devastated.  I could see no way to pay for it in time.  I decided to try something new I had learned about at a real estate seminar.  I sat down and wrote out a letter expressing how happy I was that I could pay for their honeymoon.  How they had the best time at their dream destination.

Vision without action is merely a dream.  Action without vision just passes the time.  Vision with action can change the world.

  – Joel A. Barker

About two weeks later I got a phone call out of the blue about 10 acres that we owned in rural Upstate New York.  The neighbors across the street wanted to purchase the property for cash and they were ready to close it immediately.  We settled on the price and two weeks later I had the exact amount needed to pay for the honeymoon.

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.

  – Jonathan Swift

How did this happen?  I created a compelling vision of what I wanted to do.  Not how it would get done.  I captured all of the emotions involved in being able to do this for my son and his new wife.  It created an emotional connection to my vision.  It opened doors I didn’t even know existed.  Want to learn how to do the same thing?

If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed.  The vision pulls you.

  1. Amazing how my ‘wisdom’ was turned upside down when I found my real purpose…..for me it was through my Christian faith……the transformation of my mind was nothing short of astonishing. His purposes became mine. It didn’t result in all sunshine and roses, but God uses the not-so-good stuff to build and grow me. Everything else fell short – satisfying for the moment, but of no eternal value. Love grows….. serving others rather than my self interest. Good to take stock now and then of our true meaning and purpose…..the why. Thanks for sharing Sheryl.
