Motivation has always been a difficult thing for me to pin down. I’ve always enjoyed watching TED talks or browsing through r/getmotivated to gain just a splash of energy, but the surge never lasts long. In search of a method to gain motivation that held for a while, I stumbled upon Daniel Pink’s work on motivation…
How is motivation driven by your purpose? Lasting motivation is largely driven by a desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. When we find purpose in what we want to achieve, we become self-motivated instead of relying on people, money, status to energize us.
I recently just started working in sales… and let me tell you: the attitudes and ideals in the sales world are drastically different that what I want to carry into the rest of my life. Without a grounded sense of who we are and where we’re headed, it’s easy to get lost in busyness, stress, and the stronger ideals of others.
Why do personal core values matter? Personal core values matter because they act like a compass for the direction we want our life to go. They allow us to dream the ideal life we want to live and to create real ways we can achieve it.
This is a big misunderstanding about life purpose… whenever I talk with people about purpose, they feel like it’s one thing they have to figure out. But it’s not…
Can your life purpose change?
Your life purpose is constantly changing. As you learn more about yourself and the world around you, you naturally beginning feeling, reacting, thinking, and acting differently. And you gain feedback about what really matters to you and what being human is all about.
We’re all chasing personal fulfillment. I know how easy it can be to try to find life fulfillment in things, status, and opportunity… so I’ve been searching for ways to find fulfillment within myself and I thought I’d share with you!
So, how do you find personal fulfillment? Finding personal fulfillment is a lifelong process of self-exploration. The first place to start is the recognition that personal fulfillment is never a destination. It’s about constantly searching for the ways we’re invited to a deeper experience in what it means to be human.
You are the most overlooked leader in your life, and it is holding you back.
Leadership is a crucial factor in the success of any organization. The ability for an organization, whether that is a business, a community, or a family, to have a purpose, a vision for what that purpose looks like, and a game plan for growth rests mostly on the leadership structure of that organization. Those three elements; purpose, vision, and a game plan, are necessary for success as an organization.
We know this is true of organizations, but have you thought about that same idea applying to your life as an individual? Your ability to have purpose,
vision, and a game plan for growth rests mostly on who is leading you.
