What do you see when you look at this picture?

I guess it would be fair to ask when you are day dreaming looking at this picture, what do you see?  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Do you get lost in the waves of the Bay?  Do you notice the debris on the beach? Do you notice the wispy clouds that are just floating there in the bright blue sky.  Does it make you feel happy, peaceful, or full of gratitude in it’s beauty?

If you walked this beach, where would you envision it taking you?  Can you envision challenge, inspiration, creativity, beauty, or something different in your future?

Now if you lost yourself daydreaming, do you tend to think positively about your future or more about what you need to change to find your happiness?  If you are feeling lost or stuck, it may be more about your ego protecting you from making a mistake that will lead to more unhappiness.

Then you may find yourself sorting out your life’s purpose and trying to find your happiness.  This may leave you evaluating every aspect of your life to try to feel better.  There are many things in your life that you can find to be grateful about, like your family and friends that have always been there to support you.   In fact, you have had a great career success run, but still you are feeling like you need to become a better version of yourself to fulfill your life’s purpose.  So where do you turn to?  You look at new jobs, you talk to other respected and successful colleagues that seem to have it all, or start reading and researching for yourself on the internet.

You might even look at your relationships, you try to find all the good in your life and separate from that which is no longer serving you.  While sorting and re-organizing all things in your life, you might even try to get better organized and remove clutter your home and life to make room in your life for the new version of yourself.  Releasing any negative energy can also make room for the new version of yourself.  Some may see this as extreme behaviors, but you are at that point in your life and career where you need to level-up and become the best version of yourself.

This need and desire to be the best version of yourself may lead you to do some soul searching.  There are many ways to approach this type of self learning.  You might consider a soul adventure for a few days, which teaches you about spiritual connection to your higher self, getting your chakra reading for energy blocks, or dealing with painful experiences by throwing rocks to release anger.  This allows you to focus on what doesn’t feel right in your life, body and on what weights you down.  If you are carrying emotional baggage, you will learn to peal away all the years of feeling you need to hide your feelings to avoid conflict and feel like you can start facing your fears head-on.

You may discover some deep-seeded anger issues that you will have to let go of from life experiences by using the rock throwing technique.  After freeing yourself from the heavy baggage, you may discover you don’t know how to love yourself like you should, but need to learn how to again.  You ask yourself, where did you forget how to do this and when did this change?  Learning to love yourself more will give you the courage and confidence to face your fears.

There are more steps to getting your mindset ready for the new way of thinking and leveling-up to fully express your soul’s purpose.  How can you begin the process?  You can reach out to someone who has gone through it and learn how to attract all that your soul desires, once you learn to recognize your subconscious mindset.  This process of changing your mindset can be done in just 8 weeks; where you will learn all the tools you need for success.   All you have to do is reach out to me on messenger, leave me a message below in comments and provide the best contact method.

What are you willing to sacrifice to feel better?

If you don’t make any changes, you will not change how you are feeling.  The life you are living is yours and yours alone.  Don’t live it to please everyone around you!  If you find yourself to be the people pleasing kind, then this message is for you.

If you are finding yourself stuck in your career or relationship, consider this to ponder; what makes YOU happy?  What do you like about them and what don’t you like?  When focusing on what you want or don’t want in this experience, have you considered what your life’s purpose is? We typically ask this question when we feel stuck and confused in our career or relationship and feel the need to figure out our life’ purpose.

What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

When you feel happy about life and love and are enjoying it in the moment, I think you have found your life’s purpose – to be happy.

Discovering your life’s purpose is self-work that you will need to do on your own. It’s a soul-search adventure of sorts. It may take some meditation and connection with your higher self to complete this task. We are all spiritual beings, having a human experience. You will need to master both mental and physical life experience to find prosperity and your life’s purpose. This is the definition of true wealth. Our experience in a material world, is merely a reflection of our inner happiness. This is when we experience a feeling of overwhelming love and when our soul is expressing our life’s purpose through love, joy, and gratitude. Once we have achieved this happiness, we can not only find our happiness, but will be in a better place to just be.  The importance of the focus on happiness is to remember that where intention goes, energy flows. Meaning, if your attention is just on pleasing others, you may not find the happiness that goes with it. Happiness is a big part of life’s meaning, so let’s shift focus to finding your life’s purpose.

Your life’s purpose is not a thing to be defined, it is a state of being. It is not a what, it is a how. You are living your life’s purpose by being you and by expressing your soul’s purpose through happiness. Our life’s lessons are about learning how to create and express our soul’s purpose through its uniqueness. Further, there is a difference between your life’s purpose, your soul, and your ego’s intention. So, while your life’s purpose is to be happy and allow this energy to flow through you, the human experience is to figure out how the soul and the ego’s intentions can work together. Your soul has gifts and intention. The ego’s intention is survival and safety. Its natural behavior is to protect you from being eaten. So, it learns to adapt to the environment.  You may limit your happiness by being trapped in the fears created by your ego, to keep yourself safe.  You may also limit your potential for true happiness in the process, so you need to learn when ego has taken over and is controlling your actual success at feeling happy.

Your ego will begin to allow fears to surface as a result of your new awareness of the subconscious thought patterns.  When you learn to identify the fears as you take steps to finding your true happiness, you will uncover who you are and what you are meant to be – your individualism. I find it helpful to write in a journal about your specific situation that makes you feel stuck or unable to move forward towards your happiness.

Your ability to find your happiness depends on a variety of factors, one being awareness of your feelings around the experience. How does your heart feel about this obstacle?  Can you identify any feelings of freedom, love, or joy around what you are doing or experience in your career or relationship? These pure forms of feeling are how your soul expresses its purpose.

When meditating you might ask yourself, “What would I do if I knew I could not fail”? Repeat this in your mind several times as you sink into meditation mode. When you finish the meditation, take a moment to jot down the ideas that came to you. If you are new to meditation techniques, you can find lots of information on the Internet, including meditation music and binaural beats, to help you get started. The benefits will be rewarding.

Today, I want to help you to find your happiness and discover your life’s purpose. I know that you have heard the saying that there’s a silver lining in every situation. That is, if you are able to look at your situation with an outsider’s perspective, there is an opportunity you are being faced with right now at this crossroads on your life’s journey. Which path are you going to take? The one less traveled, to greatness, or the worn-out path you may continue to cycle through until you are ready to make the leap?

Another helpful step is to make your declaration of happiness and remind yourself of it by putting it out to the Universe and writing it down.  When you are in a state of gratitude about the happiness you have all around you will begin to attract similar happiness in other areas of your life.   Do the work to clear away the disbelief and make the commitment to yourself and your future to believe in yourself. Next, you need to take action and figure out how to remove any obstacles in your way. So, what are you waiting for? What do you want? Dream big, because your dreams don’t need to be realistic, they just need to be yours from within!

 

After you have done the work and have a clearer vision for your life’s purpose and happiness, you need to stay true to yourself and surround yourself with all that serves you in this purpose.  This may be a difficult process for some, but when you figure it out and it all makes sense, you will be well on your way to living your life’s purpose and achieving your happiness.

You think you are protecting yourself from failure?

You know you have some really great ideas about starting your own business.  You have worked so hard in the last few years and are tired of the being a resource for someone else’s businss.  You might be thinking, I know how I would do this differently.  Hell, your manager and all the company clients call you instead of scheduling through the office.  What does this tell you?  You must be really great at what you do, right?  Damn straight!

You keep kicking yourself for not spending the time to plan out your next steps.  There has been an aweful lot of talk, talk, and more talk about starting your own business. Blah, blah, blah…

Sounds like you are talking the talk, but not walking the walk.  What do I mean by that? Well, if you were really walking the walk, you would have done more research, checked into writing your business plan and have some clue about who your ideal clients would be.  You would know how much money you need to get on your feet, have a little free cashflow for the start-up and even a 1 and 5 year plan ready to go, right?

What the heck are you waiting for?  You need the push or maybe the final kick in the pants, to just do it!  You know I am talking about you now.  What do you have to say for your lack of action now?  I know there is a big couragious lion in there waiting to pounce on this opportunity, but if you wait too long it will literally pass you by.  You will be watching someone else fulfill your dream job or business, while you sit there again and keep asking yourself why did’nt I just invest a little money in myself to get the kick in the pants I need, working with a career coach, to get you moving?

This scenario is like the next million dollar idea, the next successful company, or the next career professional who takes companies by storm and rocks their performance from underperforming to continual improvement year over year!  That’s YOU!

What is in your bucket list?

Have you ever jumped out of a plane?  I didn’t know if I was ever really going to do it then I started telling people I was going to do it and before I knew it I was doing it!

Was I scared? You better believe it!  My first thought when I got in the jump gear and on the plane was how was I going to get the nerve up to jumping out a perfectly good plane.  Well it became easier when I was strapped to someone else who was trained for this very thing.  The fears were calmed for sure.  This is no different than taking a leap of faith in making a completely different career move or walking away from a 6 figure job!

Yes, you can follow someone else’s lead and you will thank yourself for freeing your spirit once it is done, believe me!  I actually look forward to jumping out of that plane again, because it wasn’t as bad as my fears had worked me up for it.

What else are you holding yourself back from?  Are you being held back because of your own fears or your partner’s fears?  You will never know how good you will be at something if you don’t try it.  I know, what if the risk out weighs the rewards!  Honestly, this is something you need to sort out now before it is too late and all you have to live with is your regret for not doing it instead.  It could be the most successful thing you have done in your career and life time, but if you don’t plan it or work with someone who has done the very same thing, you are not only limiting your success but your growth and development to be the best version of yourself by not doing it.

Let me ask you this, what is the worst that could happen if you take that leap of faith and just do it?  Then what is the worst that could happen if don’t take that leap of faith and just do it?  You fail twice as bad, so why not figure out what it would actually take to get your ultimate goal in motion with a map or plan?

Failure is a result of trying, not trying is a result of lack of confidence in yourself.  Lack of confidence in yourself means you don’t believe you can do it.  STOP this way of thinking now!  This is a form of limiting belief system that your subconscious mind is feeding you!  If you don’t have the support you need or coach to push you, or the “neigh sayer” in your ear, then that is the first think you need to get figured out.  As a Mid-career Mastery Coach, I can be the biggest pain in the butt you want me to be, if it means to push you through your steps to your dreams.  I can help you line it out and work with you on your time lines, but first we need to get you thinking about the solutions and just getting it done.  Reach out, I am here for you!
