To Identify Your Purpose, You Need to Know the Science of Purpose

07/14/2020

It’s super easy to confuse a life-purpose with a vocation. A vocation is simply a way to deliver your life’s purpose.

07/13/2020

Welcome to Week 29 of 52 … I’m a big fan of questioning, “Why am I here?”… I do believe that we each have a life-purpose installed in us. It’s easy to confuse life-purpose with something you want to build. A life-purpose is not to “make the best cupcake” or “create a new textbook.” A purpose is something you apply to every aspect of your life when you are living congruently… So, a purpose can be “to free people to live a fulfilling life” or “to create more understanding between people”… So…this week I ask you: How can you act on your life’s-purpose. How can you be more receptive in conversations? Where can you offer help?
.
Purpose can be lived in all parts of our lives but that requires us to focus first on the vision we hold for the world. Then we can think about how we move the needle by “showing up” for those around us.

07/12/2020

If I remain open to receiving the world, I feel myself get wiser. It is when I close myself off and commit to righteousness that I feel like I lose my power. Being a wizard comes from being willing to receive from the energy around us. Wizardry is about manifesting things in your life. But here is the thing, you can only manifest from reality. If you try to fight it, you end up getting pushed back on. When you surrender to reality you can then make decisions from that place of truth… So… what wisdom surfaced for you this week? What were you so open to receiving that it made you more powerful? Answer in the comments section – I’d love to reply to you.

07/11/2020

What is causing your cognitive and physical energy to drain? What no longer serves you? If this one thing or habit or person or painting on your wall were removed, would it increase your energy levels, giving you more bandwidth to put towards things you love? Add your answer to the comments section here so I can reply to you.

07/10/2020

How many of you have also fallen for your brain’s trick to convince you that you were a bad person? It’s super easy to fall deep inside the story we tell ourselves. It’s only human. My goal for myself is to tell myself FEWER stories and seek out MORE facts… Which I did in this story here.

07/09/2020

There may be things in your sphere that you are just not liking right now, and I’m not here to say, “suck it up.” I’m not even here to say, “Don’t worry, this too shall pass.” I am here to offer a moment for you to exercise self-restraint and focus on what is just perfect right now… Turn the volume up, slam down some gratitude with me, and put your responses in the comments section, so I can “Show up” and reply to you!

07/08/2020

Being a wizard means that you can conjure things into reality. The best way to do this is to start with the reality in front of you and from there make choices on how to manifest what it is that you want.

Week 28 of 52 … Now is a great moment to slow down your scrolling and get deep inside your mind… In your thinker toy, pick one word that sets up your theme for the week. If you select something like “passion,” then throughout the day, you can “check in” on yourself, and ask, “How can I apply the theme of passion here?” Perhaps you can even ask the person in front of you, “What are you most passionate about?”… There are so many ways you can use an intention. What is most important is that you get to CONTROL where your FOCUS goes… And as “they” say, “Where attention goes, energy flows…”

07/06/2020

I want to throw this out here to you again since I'm so proud of this... My two worlds have collided!!!!!: My background in the dance comp world AND my corporate coaching world… For those of you who know me from the dance world, check out this website www.conquestdance.com for more information about my involvement with the leadership portions of this three day dance industry event. 🗓 💻 I’m excited to join some you on August 14-16, 2020! #ConQuestDance

If you are not growing, you are dying. Growth is a core human need. Find me someone who is stagnant in their personal growth, and I will show you someone who is not fulfilled… If we really take the time to look in the mirror and ask, “How did I grow?” I bet there is something to find. You might have even had a setback this week. We can still look in the mirror and ask, “What is this here to teach me?”… There is always opportunity to grow, and I challenge you right now to share with me your greatest lesson of the week. Add how you evolved this week in the comments section here, and I’ll swing back around with you in a reply.

07/04/2020

My favorite description of personal growth is, “You don’t create yourself, you uncreate yourself. You remove who you are not.” This idea was introduced to me by one of my coaches and mentors, Dr. Matt Grzesiak. The moment he said these words to me, I felt like he gave me the words to describe my purpose… And now, I share them with you here with the intent for you and me to get self-reflective together… What is it time to remove? Who are you NOT anymore? What attributes of your life don’t represent how you want to be remembered? We spend almost our entire lives building a protective fortress around ourselves so that we don’t get rejected and hurt… Now, it’s time to start looking in the mirror, take off some of those protective layers and truly live our best selves… So… Share with me here, in one sentence, a paragraph, or an emoji: WHAT IS IT TIME TO REMOVE…WHO ARE YOU NOT?

07/03/2020

I truly believe that if more people were engaged and fulfilled in the work they did, there would be more congruency and harmony in the world. 90,000 hours of a person’s lifetime is typically spent “at work.” What a waste of human capital if that time is not spent on something to fill a higher sense of purpose.
.
To increase the workforce engagement rate requires C-Level, Senior and Middle managers to actively lead and not just manage. They will need to understand empathy and the importance of growth for the individual. Even more important than the short-term need for immediate leadership skills, it is time for the education system to start teaching younger generations the importance of living a fulfilled life instead of a compliant life… Just imagine if in elementary school the “system” started to focus on life purpose instead of the perfect grade.

07/02/2020

The moment you decide to “live life on your terms” you enter a pact that you are willing to disappoint other people. You won’t disappoint everyone, but you will find that some people are not in alignment with some of your decisions, and that is ok!!! Join me here: turn up the volume on this video and slam down gratitude for some of the most powerful places where you had to decide to disappoint people and how it helped you grow exponentially.

07/01/2020

Write Your Own Eulogy. I know this sounds a bit morbid, but it is one of the most powerful exercises I have done.
.
Write, in one paragraph for each, how you would like your eulogy to sound from the standpoint of:
1)A romantic partner/lover/spouse.
2) A family member or your child.
3) A friend.
4) A work peer.
.
Now… After you write it, I ask you: Are the actions you are taking in your life now, in alignment with the ways you want to be remembered?
.
Try it in the comments section below or email your answers to [email protected].

My position on personal growth is that you don’t create yourself, you uncreate yourself. You remove who you are not.
.
We spend years and years adding layers onto our egos to protect our core needs of security, approval, and control. With everything happening outside our windows and inside our hearts right now, it’s a great time to check in with ourselves and ask, “Is the way I am living right now, congruent with the way I want to be remembered?”
.
It is a prime time to create change, positive change, and if we want to make change outside, we have to start with the change inside ourselves… Thanks for being a caregiver to the world. Let’s keep the self-reflection strong.

It’s Week 27 of 52 … As social animals we are here to serve other. When you take control of what you focus on, the power you have to make transformative change for your own life and the lives of others is 400x the amount of change, compared to if you had no focus whatsoever. Type a word in the comments section that is representative of how you want to serve your higher sense of purpose this week. Write that word down somewhere for you to reflect on. The word is not an “answer” on how to create growth; it is the lens you can use this week. When you feel like you’ve lost your way or got thrown off track, use that one word like a compass. That word is your centering thought for the week that you can use to help re-align yourself and stay focused on what you DO have control over.

I’ve had quite a few moments lately not knowing what to write. I normally don’t have a hard time finding something to say, so why now?
.
There have been deep, rich, and important conversations happening globally over the past few weeks -- and I was paralyzed about what to say. In fact, I was angry at myself for not knowing how to contribute with my voice…
.
After a few rounds of beating myself up, I talked it out with some friends and figured out what I was doing: I was trying to write for the general population, which just made me feel more at a loss for words, because truth is, not everyone wants to hear what I am saying…and that’s okay.
.
So, the commitment that I’ve made to myself is to write and video record what is resonating to me right now and know that others who relate to my words will find connection in my narrative. This also means that I have to accept that others will not only not want to hear what I have to say but also not agree with the way I am presenting myself.

Gratitude is a habit. What if the habit of sharing your gratitude with others showed up more? Turn up the volume on this post and join me in building the habit. While we’re at it, how about tagging someone or a brand you have gratitude for? Let’s do this…

06/23/2020

What would be different in your life if it were easier for you to disappoint people? As a coach, I hear so many people talk about how they are not living life on their terms in fear of disappointing another person. What if it turned out that disappointing others is a necessary part of growth?

I'm suuuuppppper excited that my two worlds are colliding: My 20+ years of working with Dance Educators and my current role as a Leadership & Life Coach. The online group I run, the Gratitude Slam, is a presenting partner for ConQuest: A Virtual Conference For Dance Professionals! 💻 I am working closely with the ConQuest team to bring the cutting edge Leadership training to dance educators and performers. I've always preached that more leadership training is needed for younger generations, so I even get to host a youth leadership workshop called "Lead Like A Dancer". For those of you that are members of my Dance Family, I'd love for you to pass along the info for this online event, August 14-16th, 2020 #ConQuestDance

Week 26 of 52… Pick one value to give extra focus to this week… I’m going to pick the value of “TRUTH.” By doing this, I pledge to catch myself withholding and make the choice to share more of myself. What value can you focus more on? There is no right or wrong answer. Pick one driving force to paint the rest of your week… Put your answer in the comments section, so I can respond…

Your contribution does not need to be immediately viral. Your contribution doesn’t need to have earned you or someone else a large sum of money. Just sit in silence for a second and answer the question… Because you are here on planet earth, over the past week or so, what was your contribution? How did you move the needle on human evolution? You did, I promise you did, so don’t sit here sulking at me that you didn’t make a difference. Every human contributes in some way or another. That is, after all, what we are designed for… So, maybe this answer comes easy, or maybe you really have to think about it… Whatever your mind brings to the table on this question, I’d love to hear your answer in the comments section below… And … GO:

I heard this question when I was taking a class with the Conscious Leadership Group the other week. It hit me like a ton of bricks… I think I’m overall pretty good at acknowledging my feelings and talking about them, but when I heard this question it made me ask, how often am I “canning” my emotions by not allowing myself to experience them through to completion…. What are your thoughts about this question? Is this scary to you? Does this make you realize anything about yourself? Start a dialogue with me below in the comments section about this question. GO:

06/19/2020

My Coach Dr. Matt threw ice-cubes at my face when I asked him this question. This conversation about being “strong enough” changed my perspective on the science of achievement. Thoughts?

06/18/2020

What is gratitude? In this video I share with you my thoughts. I’d love to hear your thoughts too… The comments section is our gateway to talk together, so add your thoughts about gratitude and take a listen to the video, and slam down your gratitude while you are here with me already!

Emotions are designed by nature to help us survive. When you feel something strongly, it is your opportunity to ask yourself, “What is this emotion telling me?” Perhaps anger is signaling a misalignment in your life. Sadness could be telling you that you need to release something. Maybe fear is reminding you it’s time to finally face something. If you use emotions as your indicator to move forward and respond instead of reacting to your life, you will come to find you have an abundance of freedom and power.
