Do Be Do Be Do or Be Do Be Do Be?
Do you judge yourself as successful? Most people judge success by outer standards; for example, how much money they make. If they have a job they judge as “good” and they’re meeting their income goals, they judge themselves as successful. Inwardly, they may be sick and tired, they may be compromising their values, their relationships may be hanging by a thread, but they are “successful.”
Conversely, if people judge themselves as lacking with respect to job and income, they often see themselves as unsuccessful, no matter how happy they may be in other areas of life.
In Western culture, especially in the U.S., we are obsessed with the idea of doing – accomplishing goals, making more money, having better things. While there is nothing wrong with that, making it our first priority is leading us away from our purpose in life; to be fulfilled.
I know of a father who preached to his young children that they should aim for a certain profession because they would make more money in it than in any other. He said nothing about inner satisfaction or following their passion. If they followed his advice, they may be among the overworked, stressed-out, “successful” millions who are living someone else’s values, not their own.
Job/career and life seem to be two separate entities for many people. Do you feel split in two? Are you one person on the job and another at home? Who is the real you?
Your perfect job is the one that is the reflection of who you are inside, giving you fulfillment and satisfaction according to your real interests and passion. Inward success creates real (not false) outward success.
Try Changing Your Focus
Think of yourself as a spiritual being having a physical experience. In this paradigm, you see that spirit is first and physical follows. When you follow your spirit, you know who you are and what you are doing here. In other words, to get that brilliant job, find your life purpose. When you discover your purpose, you are fulfilled by expressing who you are in all the facets of your life, including your career. When you follow your purpose, your life automatically lines up with who you are and begins to flow smoothly.
Use Many Resources to Find Your Purpose
There are many good ways to find your life purpose. I just Googled “how to find life purpose” and found pages and pages of links. There are books, DVDs, CDs, seminars, career coaches, and web sites, including this blog, all dedicated to helping you find your purpose.
All you need to do is to get out of the way and let your heart take over. Click on any link, explore every resource that attracts you. Try different exercises. It takes dedication and persistence. When tears are running down your cheeks, you’ll know you’re home.
One More Resource
I have used several good resources and exercises to help me find my life purpose. But I didn’t get that heart-felt response until I found a small book by W. Mykian that showed me how to find my purpose by using Chaldean numerology. This special type of numerology helped me discover my purpose in a matter of hours.
When I calculated my numbers, all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that was my life suddenly came together and presented me with a clear illustration of my entire life plan, including directions for how to live it. I laughed, I cried, and I heaved a huge sigh of relief. I ‘d been searching for a long time.
Numerology Works for Everyone
It was easy for me to accept numerology as a valid tool for personal growth, since I am a born mystic, but it may not be easy for you. Perhaps you think numerology is nothing but hocus-pocus or airy-fairy new-age feel-good fluff. But numerology is really an ancient science of the spirit – the unseen. Maybe you don’t believe you are spirit or that you have a purpose in life. But it doesn’t matter whether you believe or not. It will work for you.
If you are “successful” but feel there is something missing in your life, it’s a sign you are searching for your purpose. If you regret that you’ve never reached your full potential, it’s a sign you are looking for your purpose. If you are frustrated by a lack of direction, it’s a sign you are seeking your specific path in life. If you are one of the many millions who hate their jobs, it’s a sign you are looking for your life purpose.
Numerology is quick and easy to do and is a life-long guide. I use my Chaldean Soul Chart to help me remember who I am and where I’m going. It helps me focus on my strengths and use my power to resolve challenges, strengthen my relationships, stay healthy, and prepare for the future.
Use every opportunity in service to your personal growth. Open your mind to numerology so your heart can tell you whether or not it is right for you. Find out more about my book by clicking on the Select Authors image.
Live your purpose every day.
