That which we avoid, stops us from living our life’s purpose. The challenges in our lives are building blocks, that strengthen us to be better, stronger and force us to tap in to our hidden potential in a way that we have never done before. My biggest breakthroughs came about when I stopped avoiding the path I had to take.
Our emotions never lie. They give us an indication of what is truly going on inside. When one does not pay attention to their emotions, the body takes over, and one gets sick and the mind seeks for ways to escape the “what is”. When one truly experiences the “what is”, they will discover their hidden potential. It takes commitment, effort and time to look inwards. One has to plough through millions of years of conditioning. Taking action on a consistent basis, with regular course correction is an absolute must! to achieving one’s life purpose.
When you over commit, you will not be able to live your life’s purpose. It takes courage to say no, when you want to say yes to all the opportunities that come along the way. The distraction along the way will not make you happy. Infact they will take you away from living your life’s purpose.
When we have setbacks, the tendency of the mind is to feel dejected to feel depressed. But if you take a close look at this setback, you will see the opportunity to grow, to evolve and to transcend your limitations in a way that you have never done before. The best is on its way…
An unwholesome mind is dangerous mind. When we set a goal that does not reflect our core values we produce mediocre results. Failure is a choice that is usually made by someone who has an undisciplined mind. An excuse is a clear sign of an undisciplined mind. Commitment to your life’s purpose requires a disciplined mind.
Can you experience reality as it is and stay with the “What is?” If the answer is yes, then you will succeed no matter what. On the other hand if you think you lack resilience at this present moment, then I invite you to build capacity for the “what is” in every moment.
If one thinks that their assets are what they have in their bank account and the house they own, they have truly devalued themselves. Your inner integrity is the most valuable asset you have. If you can be honest with yourself and take a good look inside, you will see that you can make do with out your assets, but you cannot thrive without inner integrity.
Complacency is so subtle, it takes humility and awareness to recognize what is truly going on. It gives you a false sense of comfort and well being. If you want to live a purpose filled life and want to have a massive impact in your community, then complacency is not your friend.
Inner satisfaction is crucial to your success and well-being. Your inner satisfaction will determine how well you live your life on a day-to-day basis. When you realize that what you have is enough, that’s when the existential angst evaporates and you realize that who you are is here, fully present, experiencing life as it is.
