Finding and pursuing your Passionate Purpose seems like a lot of work, right? If you’ve been working on it a while, you might be getting tired. Maybe you’re even letting some of the stuff you’ve been working on slide. (And you still haven’t watched all of Shark Week that you DVRd. Ok, maybe that’s just me.)
Guess what, it is a lot of work. It’s a lot easier to coast through days, weeks, months, and years, never putting out the effort to live that extraordinary life.
But that’s not what you want. You want something different. You are all in on pursuing your Passionate Purpose. You are going to capitalize on that by increasing your income to the point you can change your family tree, give to others, live where you want, travel where and when you want, do what you want, and be financially free.
So when you get tired, or down, or you question yourself, just remember; yes, all the hard work is worth it. If you do it right, you will also enjoy the entire journey.
I know it can be overwhelming to imagine that you are going to become the person who can do everything you must do to achieve all your dreams.
It will take time.
It will take effort.
It won’t go in a straight line.
You will hit walls.
But if you continually think about what you want and who you want to be, make a commitment to it, and take consistent, daily action, you will succeed…
…and it will be worth it.
Get moving on something that will start you on the path to finding and pursuing your Passionate Purpose. After all, the years will go by either way. Do you want to look back twenty years from now and say I just kept making a living, or do you want to look back and say that was when I decided to start earning an extraordinary life?
My hope for you is that you get started right now on your Passionate Purpose.
Action Steps: Take stock of what you’ve done in the last two weeks.
1) Spend a little time thinking about your Passionate Purpose. What gets you excited about it? Why do you want it so badly? Why do you want to make the changes necessary to reach your goals?
2) Be brutally honest with yourself: Are you reading your goals every morning, noon and night? Are you taking actions outlined in your action plans every day? Are you holding yourself accountable for what you said you would do with your accountability partner every week? Are you putting the time and effort in to really change your life?
3) If the answer to any of those questions is no, give yourself some grace. This isn’t easy. There is no shortcut. But, you can do it.
4) Get back on the horse. If you need to, restructure your goals and action plans. But, get a system in place where you can take action every day. That’s how you’re going to win. It’s not going to be some huge leap, it’s going to be consistent action over time.
Remember the old adage: Yard by yard, it’s hard. Inch by inch, it’s a cinch.
