Why It’s Important to Live Your Purpose

Do you know your purpose? Do you feel like you’re meant for more? It’s time to take action towards this! Here is why…

Listen to the audio version HERE!

In an EXTREMELY shortened version, I have discovered that MY PURPOSE is to help others find their own purposes and recognize that is possible to live a life in service to their purpose and actually MAKE MONEY doing it! Why? I went through the struggle and depression and pain of feeling unfulfilled in my life. Consistently knowing that I was meant for and CAPABLE of more continuously put stress on my life and made me desire CHANGE. Once I broke through the mental stigmas and actually made the decision to change, which resulted from a state of uncomfortability, I was able to see with clarity that it is my JOB to share this with the world.

But WHY is this IMPORTANT?

I want you to sit back and think of things that you DO NOT want in your life. Go ahead. Do it. -> What did you come up with?

Now, I want you to sit back and think of things that you DO WANT in your life. Go -> What did you come up with? Was it more difficult to name these things than it was to name what you didn’t want? Don’t worry it if was, that is super common. Why? Because the truth is, most of us do not know what we really want. Or, we are afraid to admit it because we think it is silly or impossible.

No. Just no. The first reason why knowing your purpose is important is because it provides CLARITY in your life. Many people are wandering aimlessly in monotonous lifestyles where they feel like they’re trapped in a hamster wheel, doing the same things day in and day out and accepting that this is all life is for them. Though they may want more or feel that they are meant for more, for whatever reason, they never bring this feeling into fruition. The first step to do so, is to get uncomfortable with this lifestyle to incite CHANGE, and realize that you can live your purpose once you gain CLARITY on what it is you really want. Trust me, clarity is one of if not THE most RELIEVING emotions you can feel.

Why else is knowing your purpose important? This one is more physical, but it is important because of your personal health. Wait…what? Yes. When your ideas of your life are not congruent with your current state, there is unhappiness, confusion, discouragement, discomfort, and fear. All of these negative emotions culminate into an overwhelming STRESS! And we all know what stress does to the body. Big stressors, and even a combination of smaller constant acute stressors are DETRIMENTAL to ones’ health. Don’t believe me? Well, sparing you the scientific details, do some research on the impact of stress on the body. A lot of the times when the source of this stress is unable to be recognized, because one’s life is seemingly perfect, they do a deeper dive and realize that it is because they are not living their PURPOSE. This unfulfilling feeling is wearing at them constantly and most of the time people are too afraid to take action against this.

I’m here to tell you, that it is TIME to take action. Live your PUROSE NOW! Find it, recognize it, DECIDE to pursue it, make the CHOICE to CHANGE, and begin living the life of your DREAMS NOW! Do it like there are lives at stake. Because there are. The most important life…yours.

The Biggest Key to Getting What You Want, That You May Be Overlooking

The #1 key to getting what you want is always overlooked, but is most definitely the EASIEST.

Listen to the audio version HERE.

A lot of people I work with (most of them actually), decided to do so because they have something they want, or an idea they want to pursue, but have no idea how to get it. Whether they lack the knowledge or confidence to get started, by far the biggest excuse I hear…is FEAR! Fear of the unknown, uncertainty, losing everything, fear of lack of resources, etc. etc. Don’t get me wrong, these are legitimate fears. But if you always consider these hindering factors…you will NEVER take action to get where you want, because you are waiting for the perfect time. Well, there really is no better time than now.

Who has heard the phrase “It is not a matter of RESOURCES, but a matter of RESOURCEFULNESS”? To me, there is no truer phrase. Why?…Think about the successful people you know who came from NOTHING. Look at Oprah. Now one of the world’s richest women, she didn’t come from a life of luxury or wealth or ease, but quite literally a life of POVERTY. She didn’t have something you don’t have, and arguably, she had less. Too often do people suspend getting started on their dreams because they take so much time thinking and wondering and pondering how to find ‘resources’ to get them started, when they are undoubtedly overlooking the #1 rule to getting what you want…and most definitely the EASIEST.

Just…ask. That’s right. Ask for it. Ask EVERYONE and ANYONE you know to HELP you on your journey to get what you want. If they can’t help you, ask them to refer you to someone they think who can! If even they cannot help you…go out and meet new people! Network, build relationships, build a COMMUNITY of individuals who you now know that can cast a net for they themselves, or someone they know to HELP you along the way. Be it with ideas, finding mentors, monetary resources, guidance, legal advice, accountability…or just to surround yourself with people who have reached the level of success you want to achieve, the easiest thing to do, is to ask someone for help.

DO NOT let your pride get in the way here. Many times people are WILLING and even HAPPY to provide guidance or advice, because that means that you see them as a successful and TRUSTED source of information! What better compliment to one’s accomplishments as to be regarded as an expert?! And DO NOT be afraid to ask, either. Why? Because what is the WORST thing that could happen? The absolute worst thing that could happen is them simply saying “no”. One word. Why would that stop you? On the other hand, think of all the things that could go RIGHT?! Those FAR outweigh the consequence of a “no”. And if someone tells you no, guess what, there are billions of other people on the planet that odds are, will end up saying ‘yes’. And who knows, maybe that ‘yes’ will be exactly the ‘yes’ you needed!

Your Biggest Challenge Isn’t Fear, It’s….

A lot of people dream big things, but never go for those dreams because of a variety of factors that hold them back. What are they, why do you have them, and what is the biggest factor hindering progress?

Quite the cliff hanger, yeah? If you are like me, you once, or now, or ALWAYS have had an inkling inside you that life could be more. More than it is, more fulfilling, more fun, more adventurous, more profitable, more compelling, more…you fill in the blank. We come up with ways that we think will help us make life this “more”, however that thought turns into a passing thought, then moments, minutes, hours, days, months, even YEARS pass, and we still have that thought ( or idea ) but have never done anything, or taken any action, to bring that thought into fruition. WHY!??!

Whether you want to admit it or not, 9 times out of 10, whatever it is that is holding you back is coming from the INSIDE. We like to blame outside factors for our not taking action…blaming the economy, lack of time, lack of monetary resources, lack of knowledge, etc, for us not pursuing our dreams. But to bust your bubble….all of these limiting thoughts are actually in your HEAD. Once you make the conscious choice to get rid of these limiting beliefs, you’ll be astounded at how much you can accomplish.

But where do these beliefs come from in the first place? What are other limiting factors? Fear?…yes. Doubt…yes. Intimidation…definitely. But I think there is one in particular, that has more power than all of these…combined. It is an emotion that I’d like to illustrate with the following story, an old fable that has been passed down and retold over the years…”The Devil’s Greatest Tool”.

The devil was having a going out of business sale. On his sale table he had a number of odds and ends things, brilliant and valuable looking things. Things like his silver sword of fear, that had a high price. His golden spear of doubt, with an even higher price. And his platinum dagger of envy, which was almost unaffordable. However, behind his table sitting on a pedestal, was a very simple and humble wooden hammer. Not at all impressive in appearance, someone asked, “How much for that hammer”. “Oh”, the devil said, “that is not for sale”. “Well why not”, asked the customer. He said, “because that is my most valuable possession. It is the hammer of DISCOURAGEMENT, and it is priceless. With this tool, I can do more damage than all of the other tools combined. This is the tool that allows me to first get inside a person and plant all the rest of the negative beliefs and emotions, and once I am in, the hammer of discouragement ensures that I will never get out.”

Discouragement is something that hinders ALL action. It is literally the catalyst that causes us to STOP and take NO action at all. Once we feel discouraged because of a lack of confidence or courage, or a small failure, we allow all of the rest of the emotions to take us over and cause us to stop whatever progress we are making, because we feel UNWORTHY. Though fear, doubt, and envy are all negative emotions that may cause us to act negatively, or in an aggressive manner, at least we are taking some sort of ACTION. At least some sort of movement is being made, maybe backwards, but it is movement Discouragement is the definition of a lack of movement. It causes no motion at all, forward or backward, action is stopped and falling back into old ways is encouraged.

So how do you eliminate discouragement, and prevent the devil from using his greatest tool on you? Simple….faith. Have FAITH that whatever circumstance you are going through, you will overcome it. Whatever event is diminishing your confidence, whatever tool you need to power through is ALREADY inside you. Focus on your strengths, find empowering beliefs, set a clear vision, and have FAITH that whatever it is you set out to do, can be accomplished.

Find mentors, find accountability, find coaches, and make your dreams a REALITY.

The Future of the Workforce – What does this mean for you?

The working landscape is changing. What this means for you, and why it’s creating fear for so many!

As you might have been seeing lately….the workforce is changing. Dramatically. Be it due to technology, social values, demographics, legislation, or any other reason, employers are finding themselves needing to make adjustments, quickly. The truth is, the workforce is now finding themselves with the power, forcing employers to change the way they do business, and hire quality staff.

What does this mean for you? Well, A LOT. Here are some facts about the changing landscape and some implications as a result.

WHAT’S HAPPENING

  1. More than HALF of the current workforce are millennials.
  2. Skilled positions are being replaced by robotics and automation.
  3. One and done education and career learning models are DEAD.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN

  1. Workers are demanding more freedom, autonomy, and balance. Remote workforces are more popular and will continue to grow.
  2. Technological updates are making a shift from labor skills to cognitive skills focusing on digital management, computer engineering, management and untitledentrepreneurship.
  3. Employers need to include EXTENSIVE models of experienced based CONTINUOUS learning and development for employees.

Another huge shift…people are recognizing the NEED and the low barrier to entry for entrepreneurship. With the internet, social media, and ability to essentially start a business from the comfort of their own home, studies show that entrepreneurs will make up more than 40% of the entire workforce by the end of 2020.

Not everyone can be an entrepreneur. I have so much appreciation and respect for those who are dedicated to being monumentally successful in their current or future corporate positions. But for me, I know that the above is scary and somewhat overwhelming! I want to be an entrepreneur…but so does everyone else.

My call to you. WHATEVER you do, make sure it SERVES you and your greater vision. If you want to be an entrepreneur, and do it successfully, but don’t know how to get started or even want you to do…I can help you.

I hope you enjoyed the quick read! And remember, what is it costing you to NOT live the life you want?

Are You Where You Want To Be In Life?

You don’t have to be stuck doing something you aren’t passionate about. Man’s greatest journey is his search for meaning and passion in his life…it is my passion to help others realize theirs.

*READ TO THE BOTTOM FOR A SPECIAL OFFER TO ALL OF MY AMAZING FOLLOWERS*

For TOO many people, the answer to this question, is NO. It doesn’t matter your gender, age, marital status, current occupation, social class, or educational background, EVERYONE deserves and SHOULD have ANYTHING they want in life. And here is the secret….. you CAN!

There are so many wonderful life coaches and motivational speakers who have helped MILLIONS of people just like you create change in their lives. They preach that the first step is to create a NEW mindset that aligns with the change you want to make; which is absolutely true. However, once people leave these talks, seminars, finish their books, or finish watching their videos, though they seemingly have DECIDED to make change, still they fall short in reaching their goals because something happens. It’s because though they have all of this new knowledge, they fail to take action on what they’ve learned. They lose momentum. They get stuck. For many different reasons, they fail to move towards change or they cease the actions once things get too hard.

This was me. I was lost, discouraged, broke, unfulfilled, and ultimately lacking purpose and direction. I decided to make a change. I watched, read, listened to EVERYTHING I could in the form of motivation and self help. Many of these influential people indirectly become my mentors, and eventually I began to align my actions with my new found purpose. It was enlightening, uplifting, and FREEING.

A lot of people don’t take personal coaching seriously, because they don’t think they need it, it’s silly, or too expensive. Well what if I told you that the short term cost will be exponentially increased by the long term GAINS? What if I told you that it’s okay to ask for help, that it’s BENEFICIAL to you to seek guidance from someone who can help you solve your problems and become fulfilled and on the path to your TRUE POTENTIAL?

that is my purpose. to help you avoid all of the hard times and tough struggles that I went through to finally discover what I’m here for. whether it be general health and fitness, career progression, financial goals, relationship goals, finding purpose, or setting/reaching goals and seeing RESULTS, I can help you on the right path to achievement.

To express my deep appreciation for those of you who’ve been with me through this journey of discovery, along with my FREE initial video strategy coaching session, if you decide to let me help you, you will get 25% off each month that we are working towards your goals together.

If you want to take advantage of this, or see what it’s all about, let me know HERE. THANK YOU!

 

Why You Should Join a MASTERMIND!

Learn how joining a Mastermind can enhance your life, your business, and your MIND. Don’t know how to find one, start one! Or if not, I’ve created one for you!

The term “Mastermind” has been around for ages, but was originally coined by Napoleon Hill in his book Think and Grow Richone of my favorites. A mastermind is “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.” Its purpose is to foster the sharing of ideas and intelligence in order to brainstorm, solve problems, and ultimately come up with solutions. It is an avenue to not only engage with other like minded individuals who share your beliefs, passions, and interests, but also a way to surround yourself with immense knowledge and ENHANCE your array of thought. It may even be a way to find a MENTOR, INVESTOR, or BUSINESS PARTNER.

According to a Forbes article, there are many reasons why joining a Mastermind is beneficial:

  1. A community of exclusivity.
  2. Advisement, mentorship, and peer to peer company.
  3. Collaboration.
  4. Network extension.
  5. Learning opportunities.
  6. Business expansion.
  7. Personal development.

You can always start your own Mastermind with people around you, friends, family, or colleagues. However, the benefit of a Mastermind these days is you don’t have to be in physical proximity to still share ideas. Gain access to limitless amounts of people by putting your Mastermind on the web.

Need help getting started? I’ve created one for you! Click here to request to join the Well Life Coaching Mastermind. I’ve created this group with the intention of spurring engaging conversations, thought, discussions, and providing a template for you to have ACCOUNTABILITY. Check out the first post for a few discussion topics to get you started! We’d LOVE to have you!

 

Success is service – a huge THANK YOU!

INTERACT with me and tell me what YOU want to read! As an entrepreneur, my goal is not success, but service. And sometimes they are a direct relationship of each other! Thank you for 200 followers! Let’s change the world together.

How many of you have heard about the importance of “the power of small wins”? As an entrepreneur, this is probably one of the most important points that you can focus on. Why? Deciding to be an entrepreneur is often a life-long dedication to nothing but FOCUSED DETERMINATION and ENDLESS WORK. And sometimes this is a draining, and often discouraging endeavor. As an entrepreneur, you’ve got to focus on and value the small wins, or small successes that you achieve, for that will provide motivation and a re-energizing of your determination and drive. For me, being a health and wellness entrepreneur, I choose to share this information for the free benefit of everyone who comes in contact with it. And to me, causing even 1 person to learn something new, or make a beneficial change in their lives is a HUGE win.

This morning, I woke up to 200 followers to this blog. I hope this means that people are finding value in the information I’m putting out there. In an effort to increase this even further….I want YOU to write me and let me know what YOU want to hear or read about. LET’S HEAR IT! And on top of that….a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who chooses to contribute to my goal of changing the world by bringing out the BEST in everyone. Let’s keep adventuring to this optimal goal TOGETHER! ❤
