I was asked by a client recently “How do I know what I’m supposed to do with my life?” Yup, this is the eternal question we humans all struggle with at some point in our lives. Sure, some know immediately, it falls on their lap when they’re not even looking for it. But most of us need a little help and guidance to define our purpose.
Focusing on your progress keeps you positive, builds momentum, and reminds you that you have it within you to keep going.
So think about how far you’ve come, how much you’ve sacrificed, and how blessed you’ve been to get as far as you’ve gotten.
My dad recently mentioned in passing how when I was young, people were always coming to me for guidance…I was kind of shocked. I had forgotten how long I’ve been helping others figure things out.
Be thankful…no matter where you are in life’s up and down transitions…
You’re there because you need to be there.
You’re there because you have something to learn and something to reflect on and appreciate.
And most importantly, if you’re in flux, it’s because you’re ready to grow, to become something you weren’t – so thank Life, God, the Universe for the opportunity.
As a value creator (and yes, that’s what you need to sell yourself as, to your clients or potential employers) you need to not only sell yourself or your solution, as effective, but also FAST!
This is a huge differentiator you can leverage over the competition – not by just saying your fast but by showing it, in your resume, on your website, in your sales pitch!
Stop livin’ like today doesn’t count, cause in truth, it’s all that matters. Your actions, attitudes and habits of today are the building blocks of everything you could become tomorrow.
And your health, your wealth, and your happiness all stem from today, right now. The seeds you plant today bear the fruits of your tomorrow.
