Would you get into your car and drive to an unknown location without setting your GPS navigation device, or checking a map? (If you are still 10 years behind in technology like my Dad you will have a book with maps…. on actual paper)
Of course you wouldn’t! You would end up driving around all day, hoping you might eventually hit your target, which is highly unlikely.
So how do you expect to go through life without really plugging in and connecting with your internal GPS?
That’s right! You actually have one. Your own internal Global Positioning System to help you find YOUR place (our purpose) in the world.
People have been saying for decades “my life didn’t come with instructions” and whilst that is true in some ways, we do have that internal GPS to help us find our purpose, reach our potential and find success and happiness in everyday life, the big things and the small.
Everything that’s required to live a rewarding, happy and successful life, is already within you, no matter what YOUR definition of happy and success is.
You just need to turn on your GPS
I ‘m talking about the Gaining Purpose by Self-awareness, GPS.
When you take the time to discover the 4 foundational pillars that make you unique and amazing (just as you are), it is like plugging in the co-ordinates and the GPS takes you to the right location without getting you lost.
Don’t get me wrong, you still might very well take a few wrong turns when the noise of the traffic (life) gets so loud you can’t hear your GPS, but that’s ok, your GPS will recalculate and get you back on track in no time, so you can Live Out Loud.
Your four foundational pillars are your;
Strengths & Abilities
A deep knowledge of these four pillars, your authentic self, are critical if you are to avoid driving around in circles never really reaching your desired destinations.
This is why people are engaging more and more in personal development and self-awareness.
Even businesses are training their staff in these areas because they have seen the results of happier more Emotionally Intelligent employees in the workplace.
Productivity, creativity, wellness, happiness and success, all increase exponentially when we are self-aware and standing in our truth, living congruent with our authentic identity.
Is it time to switch on your GPS and find your road to happiness and purpose?
It’s never too late to start. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Regardless of where you are now, or how you got here, you get to choose where you go next!
