Day 14 is a Big one again, this one may take you a while and you may have to keep coming back to it.
This is fine, all normal. The exercise is divided up into parts, the first few timed (this gets you laser like focused) and the next one is a tad more creative and allows you to run with it and come back as and when you need to.
You still have the usual routine:
AM – Focused Breathing Drills
MID – BLC#2
PM – Focused Breathing Drills
Anyway, on with the BLC#2 exercise… What is my purpose?
All I want you to do is set a timer for 3mins and write down in a simple sentence what your context of life is, once I looked at mine it was a simple answer to show my context is that life is a process of (constant change). So rationally my purpose is I am an agent of change!
All you need to do is ask in it’s simplest for what is the context of my life?
Part 2) – the timer is set for 3mins on each part
i) List all the things you do now that you enjoy:
ii) Imagine you are a successfull billionaire with no constraints on time, energy, finances, health or relationships, what would you do if you were in this position? – these are your passions
iii) Next write down the names of people you admire – these are your actions
iv) Make a list of the things you do naturally without even thinking about it – these are your genius.
Look at these lists and do at least 1 from them each day
How do you feel after completing these exercises?
You should feel open, aware and relaxed…..
Part 3) No timer, just allow as much time as needed….
Now given the context you worked out, look at that, your actions, passions and genius from above and given your current understanding of reality (look at your perspective from the BLC#1 last week), where do you fit in? What does all of this show your life purpose is or should be?
Here’s what to do:
- Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).
- Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”
- Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.
- Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose.
Ok so you may not cry, it may be a massive feeling of joy and elation, a sense of calm, some freed up negativity releasing, only you will know, but know you will!
When i finally did Mine I came out with this final version: “I am an agent of change who coaches those in pain to regain their self esteem, break through perceived limitations and live a lifestyle of their dreams by empowering them to create their own inspired transformations in their health, wealth and relationships while doing the same for myself and those that I love!”
It took me 7 days of pouring over that to get it (I had a lot of BS to get through), I know a friend who got it in 20 minutes….
Your time is your time, don’t rush and trust the process!!!
