I love to ask people a series of question that spark an interest in me and hopefully in the person I am asking. They include what are your dreams and goals, do you have them written down, who have you shared them with and the one that I love to have people ponder is the question, what is your gift?
I was blessed this week to speak to three very different audiences, but at the end of the day these questions still rose to the top of what I most wanted to share because what I know for sure is when people know their “Why”, why they were created, their gift, then life and how they experience it changes.
Wanting money and a great lifestyle, the ability to travel or buy whatever you want will remain true for people, but how one experiences their days are different. I am not even saying one must work in the field where they are gifted but fulfillment, our purpose creates an experience that only those who know there’s can explain.
Knowing your why is part of an evolution, it first starts with giving thought to it, consciously looking for it and being ready when it shows up.
Those who are in business know that there are principles of success that are true no matter what field you are in. In the same way, I have come to the realization that those principles are also true if people are going to live The100percentlife that I have been preaching from the mountaintop lately. Even if some of the words may be different for one versus the other, the ideas are the same.
The principles of success vis a vis The100percentlife are the same for people. Both have Dreams and Goals that are written in a SMART system with action steps, they both have gotten knocked down and have failed, so they Overcome failures, both understands and appreciates what they have which makes them open to receive, successful people and 100percenters constantly Live in a state of gratitude, they get that in order to get ahead in business, with investments and in life they have to be vulnerable so they Take Risk, both groups get that their purpose is tied to something bigger then themselves, Richard Branson and Oprah Winfrey both have Unmeasurable Faith, and they live to give to others, but not sitting back and waiting for those who need to show up, they live in a state of giving, all the time, in every way they can, they are Go-Givers, the principles of success and the principles of living the100percent life demands that both are always seeking more information, filling their tool box with information that makes them Life Long Learners.
Living the100percentlife and practicing the principles of success is simply about living a life, professionally and personally at its highest place, it is about being fulfilled.
