I’ve had a lot of feedback from you guys recently about re connecting with your purpose and how it had made a difference to who you are as a person, a coach and a business owner.
I truly believe there is a lot of value in, if only for a brief moment, stripping back the hype the bravado and the pressure’s of modern day society and reconnecting with your core.
Over the years I have read many books, coached a lot of people and sought out many new ideas in how to overcome life’s challenges. I have come to a conclusion most recently that its not about necessarily having the lastest and greatest that makes your life worthwhile but the simple things, making a difference, contributing beyond yourself, allowing yourself to have fun and living with passion and purpose.
I can take it to an even smaller chunk for you, four words: Learn, Try, Stay, Care.
First of all. If you LEARN it makes your life worthwhile. Some people say knowledge is power. It’s not about what you know but what you don’t know and endeavor to experience that creates a rich tapestry in life. You must learn to exist, and to evolve… let alone succeed. Also, LEARN from your own experiences. Negative or positive.
If we live by the belief there is no failure only feedback them it means we free ourselves to first learn by doing it ‘wrong’. We can also LEARN through awareness, by staying in touch with other people’s experiences. Learning from other people’s experiences and mistakes is valuable information because we can learn what not to do without the pain of having tried and failed ourselves.
Pay attention. We learn through our senses, by what we see, hear and feel. So be a good listener, but also be a selective listener. There are a lot of people out there who will have opinions just for the sake of having them – they offer no value and serve no purpose. Learn from every source you can access because learning is the life blood of existence. Without it we are simply restless souls.
Secondly you must TRY. They say knowledge has power; but knowledge without action has no power at all. Try to make a difference. Try to make progress. Try learn a new skills. What’s the worst that can happen? Try your best, there are a lot of things you Can do if you just try.
Thirdly, STAY. Stay the course in life. Stay past the 3 o’clock moment when you are tired or things seem hard. If you have committed to living a life with Passion and Purpose then Stay. Make it happen. Sometimes life gets in the way and that is normal and natural, Stay, move through and see it through. Maybe the next project you can pass, just don’t end in the middle. Stay.
Lastly, nothing is worthwhile unless you CARE. If you care you will see results. If you care enough you can experience tremendous highs and unparalleled success. They say love and money vibrate at the same frequency?
CARE enough to turn somebody around. Care enough to start a new business. Care enough to become your best. Care enough to provide the most. Care enough to win.
LEARN, TRY, STAY, CARE.
Just 4 little words is all it takes…..
What can you do Today that will make a difference for you, by putting these words to work?
