Seriously, look around at your life. Is it what you always hoped it would be? Maybe you aren't a fairy tale princess or a knight of the roundtable as you had dreamed of when you were a kid, but are you happy, fulfilled and being who you came here to BE? Do you have the love, health and money that you truly desire?.If the answer is "Yes", is your answer based on what you truly desire, deep down inside, or is it based on what you see when you compare yourself to others.
Do you truly have the life you want, or have you been trained to feel grateful for what you have since so many others have less?.I am not necessarily talking about having the car, spouse or house of my dreams, although there is nothing wrong with having desires like those. I am talking more about my purpose in life, or who I came here to BE.Who did you come here to BE? Do you believe that there is a purpose for your life? If so, are you moving toward it? What would it take for you to climb on-board your purpose, hit the gas and never look back?.
These questions that I am asking are important, not just for you, but for everyone on the planet. You are here for a purpose, and the world is not complete without you living that purpose.So how is your life working? Maybe you have the spouse, kids and house that you have always wanted. Is that enough? Is that why you are here?.TOOL: If you want to discover or refine your purpose in life, do this exercise.
