I’ve been thinking a lot about the feeling of unworthiness and unhappiness, and I’ve found a strong correlation between those feelings and a lack of purpose. You can free yourself from the pain you feel from unworthiness and unhappiness by defining your life purpose and using it as ultimate guidance.
Question for you: What does “life purpose” mean? (Click your answer below.)
I’ll share the results in next Thursday’s newsletter. Check out the results from last week below.
Thanks for reading this week!
One – last week’s results.
Last week, I asked, “Which area do you want to improve on or need help with most?”
Over 50% of respondents said, “discipline.”
Discipline is the ability to show up regardless if you’re motivated or not. Creating a schedule on a calendar is the easiest way to become more disciplined; I use Google Calendar.
I rely on and recommend a concept called time blocking, which is breaking up your day into defined blocks of time for individual tasks. I set these blocks of time in Google Calendar. For example, journaling from 10 am to 10:30 am, or working out from 6 am to 7 am. During that window, you focus only on that task.
When you create a defined schedule, you don’t have to think about how to fit specific tasks into your schedule. Your calendar will tell you exactly when to show up and what to do. This removes contemplation, naturally rooting discipline in your routine.
Discipline doesn’t just relate to “work,” too. Big Sean said, “Be disciplined with the things that give you joy.”
Just because you’re aging doesn’t mean you should not embody your inner child.
How can you bring more fun into your everyday life?
Spend less time contemplating to start and more time being grateful that you’re done making excuses that hold you back from your inner potential.
The sooner you say YES to something you know deep down is right for you the better.
Sometimes you may be unsure if something new is the right move or not. The secret is evaluating the amount of friction involved with the change. If there is no friction and resistance, meaning it’s happening without effort, the change is likely meant to be and you should go with it, even if your fear of newness is telling you to retreat.
