Identify and Plan Your Life’s Purpose and You Will Find Tranquility
Find tranquility when you find clarity of vision and purpose in your life
- How do you improve how you feel when you wake up, during the day or when it’s time to lay down your head before you do it all again tomorrow?
The following three questions are not just for strategic management in the business world. They apply to all actions and begin with feelings and thoughts.
- Where are you now?
- Where do you want to be?
- How do you get there?
Tune into your desires and decide when you want to experience success in these areas. What you do after that is the easiest part of all.
The first step is to tune in to your heart using the ‘head bypass technique’.
Tell your inner voice (your head) to take some time out while you flex your heart muscle for 5 minutes. Find a place you can be alone without distractions. Sit down or lay down (be careful not to fall asleep!) and close your eyes. Ask yourself, “Am I truly happy with my life and my current situation? Have I made the right choices? Can I honestly say that I couldn’t possibly have a happier, richer, more fulfilling life?
Chances are that if you are still reading, you have doubts. That’s great because life is a journey of self-discovery and the nature of man and woman is to strive for constant improvement in our quest for survival. Even a small improvement in one part of our life can enormously influence the rest of our life and those with whom we share our existence. Now, answer this question:
- Do I want to make my life even better than it already is?
If you answer “Yes”, you have just DECIDED to make a change.
Imagination time. Pretend that from the time you wake up tomorrow morning, and you will continue your life journey on a different path. A path that leads away from your current state and towards your desires.
Before you go to bed tonight, get a pen and paper and write down in no more than 1-2 sentences the perfect world as you DESIRE it to be in relation to some or all of the following:
- Love life
- Physical condition, fitness & presentation
- Opportunities for success
- Recognition/power/social life
- Anything else you feel and believe is crucial to your happy existence on this planet
Devise your journey
As Yoda [Jedi Master] once said:
There is no try. There is only do or do not. That is why you fail.
Keep this piece of paper with your special things – if you don’t have a place for a special thing, make one! Read this piece of paper often and ask yourself:
- What do I need to do to get where I am going?
I recommend the PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE.
Simply stated, don’t make the same mistakes others have made, and more importantly, don’t reinvent the wheel.
It should be FUN because you are PLANNING THE JOURNEY OF YOUR LIFE.
Decide – desire – devise your journey; along the way, you will realise that you are DOING IT!
