How do we do what makes us happy .. rather than do what we do so we can do the stuff that makes us happy?
I often talk about “purpose” and ask business owners what their purpose is. What I get back most often is a blank stare. I believe this is the biggest problem in the business world today. Most businesses lack a purpose and just go about their business as if doing the work will be fulfilling enough. If that was the case, every single business would be fulfilled and we know this is not the case.
So, it takes some effort in thinking differently but thinking about what your purpose is .. what is the driving force (or what will the driving force be) that will tap into your emotions deep enough so that hard work will not be hard anymore .. so deep that failure is not even an option .. so deep that it becomes your life purpose?
It is a hard conversation to have with a tradesman that has run a cabinet making business for 20 years and all they are thinking is “get the last job finished so I can get paid, so I can pay my bills , so we can go on to the next job .. etc etc).
This video may help you see how finding your purpose and sticking to it will lead you into the life you really want.
Could it be that “Giving is the key?”
