“Where are you going and do you want to get there?” is the title of a book that I recently read by the Swedish author Christer Olsson. The book is about personal development and this question is connected with family, business and your own personal health.
When I read this title, it got me thinking. Do we ever stop to see if we are going where we want to go in life or mission? Or, do we only follow along as life happens? Do we need a purpose and a mission in life to be happy?
I think this question is very relevant since many of us regret when we are older what we didn’t do or achieve when we had the chance. Is that what we want in the end?
Is this question important for our happiness and success in life? Do we need a purpose or a mission? Have you identified yours? Are you then measuring the steps on how you are living your mission on regular basis?
Business + Mission + Passion = Success
I believe that if you can combine your business and your mission in life I believe in success. Because if you are passionate about your mission, you become passionate about your business and your passion then becomes contagious. It is so much easier to talk and take action when you are living your mission with your purpose in life.
What do You want out of your life?
Many people do not stop to think of what they want out of life. They follow the society’s set of standards and rules and get formed and shaped according to expectations by society. Many people “wake up” too late and are missing life itself and what they thought it could be. But many people also put the victim suite on and say that others can achieve something and not themselves. Not realizing their own magnificent potential. The potential we all have within us.
How can I find my purpose or mission?
A very simple exercise is to stop and think about what you are passionate about – they are often things that get you to loose track of time – what would that be?
A lot of people don’t realize that if they do what the are passionate about, they will succeed when taking action. But that is usually where it stops. A lot of people do not take action to get to where they want to be. Yes, you could say lazy. But if you want to have a purpose in life, you need to take action, daily action.
Passion + Daily Action results in a Purposeful life.
It can be quit difficult to believe in yourself and step outside your comfort zone to start something that you are passionate about.
