Welcome to Day Three
Where are you at now?
Yesterday you created a vision for your life masterpiece
and today I want you to be clear on where you are at now
so that you can uncover a career path and practical steps
that will move you in the direction of your dream life!
Peace, love and fulfilment are an indicator that we are living on purpose.
Of course there will still be challenges and down days but for the most part...
if you are living ON PURPOSE your life will be AMAZING and filled with deep satisfaction!
So let's begin with the most obvious question...
Yep get that journal out!
Are you happy with where you are at in your life right now?
It's often not just a yes or no answer to such a question
but more a combination of parts of your life you love,
parts that are OK and part you really dislike.
So let's get a little more specific...
What do you enjoy and dislike about your current career?
Get out your journal and make two columns... enjoy and dislike...
and get clear on what aspects of your current work could do with some change.
Now... if the previous two questions have revealed a dislike in your current career...
ask the following question....
What 'shoulds' have you followed?
We can often end up in an unhappy or a 'just ok' career when we have followed shoulds
instead of desires. Shoulds imply obligation, limits and people pleasing. They suggest
you've been concerned about what others think or fitting into some kind of mould.
There's nothing helpful or empowering about shoulds!
Clarity is magnified when we replace shoulds with wants.
The power in the above questions is to highlight how good you have been at following your
desires in the past. Asking for what you want is about being completely yourself and knowing that you are worthy, capable and deserving of a career and life based on your preferences.
I had my own counselling practice for years and I loved it but over the final few years
I started to feel burnt out. BUT I kept going with it because I felt that I should because
I was making a difference in so many people's live's. My intuition was telling me
to move onto the next step but I was resisting it. Hello people pleaser!
When I finally followed my intuition and began soulful business coaching guiding others to set up a successful online business my energy, clients and abundance instantly tripled.
I was now living right ON PURPOSE!
So let's travel even deeper into your current circumstances and ask...
Are you spending most of your time doing what you love?
In order to get a true answer to this question, fill out a table that shows your time/passion ratio.
Over the span of a week, fill out all of the main activities that you undertake
in your career and home life. You can leave out the small tasks like brushing your teeth.
Then add in how much time you spend undertaking each activity and in the final column add a fulfilment score from 1-10.
Activity Time per Week Fulfilment (1-10)
Ideally we want to be spending most of our week doing the tasks that are fulfilling
and minimal time undertaking those less fulfilling.
You may now start to see a gap between what you wrote yesterday when sharing
what you want to today in looking truthfully where you are at.
This is essential for you to create clarity on the steps required from here forward.
Over the next 24 hours send much love, gratitude and acceptance to where your life is at now
and tomorrow we will explore your forward steps from here.
