You want more out of life?
What is that more?
Guess what? You are not alone.
Of all the reasons people seek my services, this vies for first place with those seeking business advice and services.
I partner with people to define the “more” they are seeking
and create the path make it real.
Let me demystify this a little for you; because it isn’t as hard as you might think, or as hard as you can make it. Trust me, I know how to make things super hard. I am good at complicating things. If there were a kingdom called “making shite hard when it doesn’t have to be” I’d be The Queen.
Bumps and bruises earned along the way have served to convert me to the strong advocate for simplicity I am today. Life doesn’t have to be so blessedly hard, answering the big questions need not require you to jump through a shed load of hoops and twirls.
Here are 5 ways to push through your own constructs of “can’t figure out my more” to “oh….there are some clues!”
- Levels of Fulfillment. Think about your life. When do you feel most fulfilled? Is it when you are helping someone? What aspect of that in particular?
Example: I found myself most fulfilled when I got to have conversations with people that resulted in specific action for them to take to better whatever dilemma they found themselves in. Empty gripe sessions were not fun for me, they left me drained. I didn’t want to just listen. And I didn’t want to let anyone go without an action to take to move forward with whatever they were struggling with.
Think of your life and get specific – when, where, how do you feel most fulfilled?
- What did you want to do when you were 5? Or 10? Or 15? Clues can reside in our childhood. What called us when we were younger and less jaded by “expectation” or “reality” or limiting beliefs? What did we want before the programming consumed us?
Example: At age 8 my son wants to be “an Army, a soccer player and a police” His energy is craving the variety, the not being confined, the being active energy that these roles represent to him. He also has a strong sense of justice and team behavior. As he ages, the “what” this manifests into may change, but I can see the energies remaining and maturing into what he does with his life.
Go back to those childhood dreams – what energies were you connecting to?
- I wish I could…statements. Create a series of “I wish I could….” Then fill in the blanks. You don’t HAVE TO do them, but if you let your imagination and your inner guru guide you in these, you may find that you surprise yourself.
I wish I could write a book.
I wish I could work out every day.
I wish I could connect people with their purpose.
I wish I could get people to see how to just be who they want to be.
And so on.
Create an entry in your journal, set a timer for at least 5 minutes and create a series of I wish I could statements. Be open to what flows out, no judging, just writing!
Those three are decent ways to get started on shaking out some clues to your “what is my more?” answers. To go further, claim your free Confusion to Clarity Strategy Session with me and let’s explore more ways to discover your more.
