Blog: Ignite Your Energy and Grow Your Life!
Does your To Do list reflect your purpose?
Getting organized should help you increase your energy and fuel your motivation to do what really "juices" you. One of the best places to start is feeling good about your purpose - the dreams that compel (and propel) you out of bed in the morning.
But it's almost impossible to find energy and motivation to go after those dreams if you're stressed out and distracted with life's busyness. When your calendar and To Do list overflow with activities that aren't personally satisfying you quickly end up feeling disconnected from your own life.
Grab a piece of paper and divide it down the middle into 2 columns. The first column will contain all the things you HAVE to do in a day. The second column contains everything you'd LIKE to do but can't for whatever reason - not enough time, money, energy or other resources.
I think you'll quickly see why it's a challenge to find your purpose. For example - you'd like to exercise regularly but you can't seem to find the time, so it gets put on the back burner. The clutter in your home is driving you to distraction but you don't have the energy to deal with it so it keeps piling up. All the unfinished, unattended to activities drain your energy and sap your motivation! It's hard to move forward when you can't find a way to do more of what you WANT to do and less of what you HAVE to do.
So the question that will align you with your purpose is this: How can I start doing moreof what I want if I lack the time, energy, and motivation to do it? The only way you'll start to feel alive and on top of your "destiny" is to pursue your dream with a vengeance.
I believe there are 3 big reasons that can keep you stuck, stressed and disconnected from your inner energy and confidence:
1. You don't believe you have choices. You think your life is the way it is and nothing you do or don't do can change it.
2. You don't believe you've got the power to change or get what you want.
3. You don't think you deserve what you want.
Don't beat yourself up if you haven't allowed yourself the time to really think about those beliefs and how they affect you. Most of the time we're so busy just surviving the day - there's no time to focus on preparing for a more exciting, rewarding future.
Your purpose is your dream - the picture you see in your mind that gives you a clear and challenging vision of where you want to be. When you find it, you'll ignite your passion. You've heard it before - passion and purpose. They're soul sisters and they always travel together.
Next week, I'll talk about how to go after your purpose with purpose! :)
