Today marks 14 years since my discovery.
I use the term discovery because that is what it truly was and in fact still is.
We are all on a journey to search for who we already are.
Stop! Go back to the previous line and think about it for a moment...
Isn't it amazing that even though we are living our lives the way we do - working hard, trying to have fun, being there for our family and friends and continually searching for that next thing that could make us rich or to fit in with the latest trend or to find something that makes us feel a little bit better in that short-term moment, etc etc... we forget who we are, what we want and need and what we have to do in our lives.
We forget and we just live life the way we are living life - the way we are "supposed" to live life!
The point is that when we came into this world we knew our purpose but because of many factors including societal indoctrination, we are all wearing our masks which blocks us from being who we are and doing what we should - hence the search!
The fact is that where we are right now is where we are meant to be and what happens is meant to happen for the sole purpose to discover why we are here and what we need to do.
My discovery started when I was 22.
Even though I have found my purpose and know what I need to do, I am still on this journey 14 years later. The insight here is that the journey is infinite. Even when it is our time to leave this world, the journey continues. Yes, in a different form but it continues nevertheless.
The world in all its forms and measure has immense complex to it. Two of my favourite things I have discovered that can make your world a much better place is to love yourself first and implement daily routines.
Love your self first
I first blogged about this not so long ago in the blog post titled Loving Yourself Each Day - It's a priority and I would like to bring it up again as I feel so strongly about it in that it will make a substantial difference in your world and it will make the world a better place.
To love yourself is hard. To love yourself first is harder and this is what I would like to challenge you to do.
Loving yourself does not make you love anyone else less. It means that instead of giving something away that you do not have yourself - leaking, rather create an overflowing fountain of love and then share it. In this case the more you love the more you have and will receive opposed to the leaking option.
With your overflowing fountain of love you will experience many benefits which include:
Daily routines provides practical tools which create a sense of your essence, purpose and love for yourself.
By putting them in place you will find that when you wake up in the morning you will have the mindset to tackle anything that comes your way, good or bad.
The bad things will be more appreciated than the good things because you will understand that they are there as a building block to make you climb higher, to make you learn and grow, to better yourself and your world.
My favourite routines to live your life on purpose and to be the best that you can be are:
Every day that you have, should be acknowledged and appreciated that today is another day to do what you need to to. You may not have another one!
Phase 1 - Find Your Human Compass is the perfect course to assist you with this.
To end off I would like to say that I am grateful for my discovery. I would not be who I am today without it.
I am grateful,
I am proud,
I am alive,
I am happy,
I am well,
I am a husband,
I am a father,
I am a brother,
I am a friend,
I am a colleague,
I am a coach,
I am a healer,
I am a transformer,
I am a business man,
I am enough,
I am me!
