Purpose is not a one-time statement or definition. As we expand and grow, we understand our purpose through our life experiences. Dr. Beatrice Berry, author of I’m On My Way but Your Foot is on My Head, has a very simple way of defining purpose. She asks two questions: “Why me?” and “Here now?” She believes that you can answer these two questions any place, any time and your purpose will be self-evident.
In my book, Leadership Energy: Unlocking the Secrets to Your Success, I describe the iSee energy. The iSee energy is not about eyesight. It is about intuition. What is intuition? Does the definition roll off your tongue? Or do you “know it when you see it”.
Webster’s definition of intuition is the “ability to understand something without the need for conscious reasoning.” The challenge with this definition is, if conscious reasoning is not involved, then how do you teach someone intuition?
How do you express yourself? Do you know what you want to say in an honest, yet tactful, way? Do you have the courage to say what you need and want to say?
When we hold ourselves back or neglect to recognize that we have something to say, we shut down an important aspect of who we are. Being tactful is one thing. Ignoring what you want and need to say is another.
YOU! RIGHT NOW! What are you grateful for?
Creating intention and awareness of the practice of gratitude can open so many doors for you, you will hardly believe it!!!
You’ve forgiven them…BUT, have you forgiven yourself?
Compassion leads us to connecting to making a stronger connection to others. But compassion begins with ourselves. Are you compassionate toward you and the choices you have made? We are often more forgiving of others than ourself.
May people I meet with tell my “Cheryl, I want more from my life and my work”. When I ask “What do you want?”, often they cannot articulate it in a way that helps me (and the universe) understand what they want so I can support their desires. If I can’t understand what they want, how in the world can others????
In my book, Leadership Energy: Unlocking the Secrets to Your Success, I describe one of the energy areas as iAchieve energy. iAchieve energy is the “fire in our belly” that guides us to get what we want. Here is an excerpt from the book with specific suggestions to help you answer the question “what do you want?”
