What do you want people to feel when they talk to you? Happiness, sadness or maybe everything combined?
Do you want people to be inspired or motivated to tackle new and exiting problems?
Do you want to make the world a better place?
I think to understand your life purpose, you gotta understand yourself first. Not in a psychoanalytical way, but in a spiritual and reflectional way.
Don’t beat yourself up. Make yourself proud inside of you. If you are proud of what you do, then it means that you are following your heart. If you are following your heart, you are doing the best work you can, because there are too many people that do things for money. If you want to succeed, then there is no better strategy than that.
Live the life that you would feel proud about telling your grandchildren. Live the life that would inspire your children and will set a good role model for them. Be a person that is open to every opportunity, but chooses only those that align with their goals. Be open to success and closed for disappointment.
Shoot each time you have an idea, and don’t afraid to fail. You can miss and embers yourself just a little. Or you can never shoot and never achieve anything in life. Which one sounds worse?
Understand your surrounding
The most important part of being successful is in alignment with your surrounding.
Look around yourself. Do your habits improve it? Do people around you improve and getter better because of your actions? Are you on your way to helping others?
Humans are social beings, and the language that we have developed is the biggest indicator of that. If we could survive alone, we wouldn’t have needed a language to communicate.
You need to check up on others and help them. This will cause a domino effect, and in the end, you will benefit even more from that.
You are 5 people who you spend most of your time with. List those people and check if they are improving you and your well being, or are they destroying it? It is essential to make those 5 people stronger and better than you. This will allow you to grow, which will allow you that effect to trickle to other people, improving their lives.
Don’t be afraid to try
If you have a particular thing that you want to experiment, calculate how much will it cost. Mostly the things we are the most afraid of trying or doing we can try or do for less than $500 and the drawbacks are not irreversible.
Don’t be afraid to shoot and fail. Try and see how it goes. You can always roll back to the point of start.
Start now. Get perfect later.
