One of the things I know is finding your why and dedicating your life to your purpose can have a huge impact on those around you. We touched on this in another post and the list of examples I shared. But it doesn’t end there. Having a positive impact on those around you is wonderful and contagious. Don’t get me wrong, being in your purpose is a worthwhile goal in itself.
But where following our calling becomes truly powerful
is in the way it affects us personally. Some amazing things start to happen when we find and follow our destiny. Don’t be surprised if you benefit just as much or even more from it as the people around you that you’re helping. I know I get so much pleasure out of helping others live their highest life, that I feel energized after a coaching session or live event. It's not just being an extrovert and getting charged from the energy in the room; it is knowing that those I speak to have the opportunity to live their life just a bit better. And that transfers to their friends and family and so on and so on.
One of the things that will start to happen as you spend the time to figure out your why and then start to follow your calling is
A Feeling of Self Worth
The more time and energy you spend finding and following your “why”, the better you start to feel about the person you are and the effect you have on the world around you. Here’s the thing. When we find our calling and work on something we’re passionate about, we do a great job and it seems all of the world participates with you.
We easily go out of our way to make sure everything is well done, that everything is right and as perfect as we can make it. We take pride in what we do and we care about the end result.
So, what do you do right now out of passion? Maybe it’s planting a vegetable garden, knitting a pretty sweater, or maybe it’s redecorating your living room. If it’s something you enjoy, something that’s important to you … a hobby of sorts if you will, you’re going to put in a lot of effort and do it right. You’ll take care to till the soil and prep it well to give your plants the best chance to thrive. You’ll rip out hours and hours of work in your knitting because you found a little mistake. You’ll spend days or even weeks finding the perfect throw pillows for the couch because nothing else will do. Fulfilling your purpose makes each of these tasks feel more like pleasure because each small success builds on each step of the journey.
We all have areas of our lives that are important to us, where we strive for perfection. Think about what that is for you. Then think about the last time you spent the time to do it right and do your best. How did you feel when you were done? Pretty proud, I bet. It feels good to finish something. It feels great to not only get a job done, but to do it well. There’s a sense of accomplishment we get from doing things right and the right way. In other words, putting the time and effort into a task to get it done right gives us a feeling of self-worth.
So make each day count by doing what you love to do and doing it with passion and determination. Let it flow through you to make this world a better place.
I know you can, for I believe in you!
