What’s your purpose?
April 11, 2018
We are all different, we have different needs, challenges, likes & dislikes. What works for me won’t work for others, & what works for them, won’t work for me. But one thing that we all have in common is, we owe it to ourselves to give this game of life our best shot in line with our own personal values & desires.
I worked in a London office for 6 years, it gave me a lot, most notably friendship and financial security, but my empty gut instinct was telling me I was missing creativity and freedom. Regular office hours, the lack of creative opportunities and a draining daily commute, meant I spent a lot of my week feeling stripped of true fulfillment. Sitting between the office walls, I felt trapped to the point that I eventually quit my day job, to take a chance for myself, by pursuing my own business opportunities.
Ever since that day, I’ve faced financial insecurity, missed out on holidays and adventures, said no to dinners, parties & opportunities that I would have loved to have been part of. In fact, I’m still saying no to this day. But for all my sacrifices, I’ve gained a sense of freedom, inspiration, opportunity & the chance to create my own destiny.
I’ve chosen this path because I’m connected to the fact that these are the key motivations that make me feel alive. Above all else, I crave chasing a life that sets my soul on fire. In order to make that happen, I’m prepared to do things that others won’t & make short term sacrifices for what I believe will be long term gain.
It’s not for me to tell you what your purpose is, or how to live your life, we are different people with different perspectives & motivations. What I will do, is invite you all to spend time connecting with what your heart is telling you and to do all you can to steer your energy in that direction. Once that’s clear, educate your brain, spend time with like minded people, be bold with your choices & go beyond the norm to immerse yourself in that space. We have one life, do what your heart craves most of all.
