Passion to Purpose

Passion to Purpose

The is a lot of bluster these days about knowing your WHY and your Purpose.  So much so that many will manufacture a Purpose rather than discover it.

But Bishop T.D. Jakes nails this conversation with this Mindset for Today.

If you are unsure, or if you feel unproven in your purpose, focus first on following your passion.  Do what you love and inquire about why you love it.  Your Purpose is not far from this point.

For me, I knew that I wanted to coach.  I also knew that mindset was going to have to be part of any true transformation—whether I am the one coaching or not. So, I began with exploring mindset and how I could open the eyes of those around that would listen.

Not only did I discover that people really need the help, I really enjoy sharing it.

My purpose is to help people unlock themselves from self-doubt and limited thinking. Once you do that, your business will skyrocket. So, I coach on business growth strategies, relationship healing techniques, and spiritual clarity and mindset.

Understanding this fact for myself has made all the difference.

Think about that.

The Mystery 10%

The Mystery 10%

Entrepreneurs like us are notorious for striving for perfection. We want everything to represent our brand and us flawlessly. The challenge is that often, we fall prey to the pressure of perfection. When that happens, progress can become severely limited. On the one hand, perfection is a great aspirational quality. But the truth is that we just need to keep moving forward and keep applying high levels of effort.

A mentor of mine says that we are to “emulate, then iterate.”

Simply put, we should copy proven methods first, then make them our own. This principle is a fantastic way not to get caught up in the perfection cycle. When we emulate, we can add our own touch of perfection when we iterate. 90% of success for entrepreneurs is action. 5% is wisdom in what action to pursue first.

The remaining 5% is a mix of luck, reading the market, and caring deeply for your customer.

Your customer wants your insights and value. Are you putting yourself out there as soon as you can? Or, are you tinkering around in hiding in the name of perfection?

Think about that.

Show me a smart, successful entrepreneur, and I will show you someone who knows how to thrive from mistakes.

We cannot grow without making mistakes. And if we are not making mistakes, that probably means you are not doing much—or certainly not trying very much.

I used to hang my head in shame from my mistakes. But now, I have learned to see them differently. What can I learn —How quickly can I reinvent?

Having this skill will speed up your path to success every single time.  The mindset of constant evolution and continuous improvement will quickly move you ahead of the pack in ways you cannot imagine.

But what do you do when you have missed the mark and your thoughts and fears come rushing in?

You go back to the lessons you know and the wins you have had in the past.

Our confidence is the single most important thing we can protect. And with that, you must also protect your memory.

Taking the time to learn from your successes AND learn from your mistakes —and document them— can make all the difference in your future success and momentum.

Think about that.
