I’ve been in the business of helping people figure out their lives in different ways for many years now. What I’ve learned is that most people go through the motions of living, but they rarely live a life that is truly fulfilled. They search for the next thing verses enjoying the moment and finding the beauty in the present. There’s nothing wrong with growing and doing new things, but when we do it to fill a void or to run from something in our lives, it is not acceptable. If we want to live the life we’ve dreamed of, or more importantly the life we were designed to live, we must find our passion and purpose and live every moment to fulfill it. We have to stop putting our value in the wrong things.
I recently finished reading the book, “Tuesdays With Morrie,” which is the story about a man who was the mentor (and coach) to another gentleman named Mitch (student) and conversations (or lessons) they shared prior to his death from ALS. One of the things Morrie revealed was how so many people walk around half-asleep, living a meaningless life. Many of us chase the wrong things trying to find meaning to our lives. One of my philosophies that I’ve been sharing for many years is if we want to understand our purpose, we must learn what our MEANING is and that will help us develop our MESSAGE, which ultimately clarifies our MISSION. This is the roadmap to designing our intentional life.
Life should be more than just surviving and making it to the next day. I have learned from my personal experiences that when we get out of our own way and help others our life takes a turn. When we devote our lives to helping others in any way possible it is amazing what happens to ours. There really is truth to when we help someone else we feel better and our life becomes fuller. We need to add a little more human kindness in all that we do. So many people are lonely, hurt, lost and filled with unforgiveness. When we can help people work through these issues it not only helps their lives but improves community.
I recently met two beautiful ladies that are also committed to impacting the lives of others through their work. I’m excited to join together with them on June 1stfor “A Passion Architect Event” to bring an opportunity to the community called, “A Passion Architect: Succeeding With Passion.” The event is being spearheaded by Stephanie Walton, Fortune 100 Leader, Coach and Speaker. Stephanie is dedicated to helping people find their passion and live the life they are meant to live. Also joining is Catrena Elliott, Speaker and Gallup Strength Finders Coach. The three of us will share steps that can make a positive impact on helping people reach their highest potential. Our focus is on helping women find their true selves and become their best selves. Women are the backbone for families, community and much of what happens in society and when we help women succeed, we help the world succeed.
Grace Hansen said, “don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.” Get off your butt and start living the life you were always meant to live. As Morrie said, it is never too late. Everyday I get up with a new excitement about the possibilities each day holds. I am committed to living my best life and helping others do the same.
