We do many things that are not part of our soul purpose, but we do it anyway. This is the reason why society has become “ Too busy” . We are constantly doing stuff, being busy, being “BizMoms” but there is a difference between being busy and being productive.
I used to own a spa, I was always busy, doing as many things as I could to maximized my day. But I didn’t realize what was really important to do first, and what things that could have waited. I use to say, yeah! This is important! This too. Answer the e-mail’s clients, sure is this important too. We are running out of products, of course, it is important , a spa doesn’t work without its products. Yeah! Everything seems to be important one thing does not work without the other.
Was I enjoying my life doing “busy stuff”? Was that my soul purpose?
Noup! It passed a few years until I noticed.
If you want to live a soul purpose, then ask yourself this question:
What things would you like to start doing that you are not already doing?
Many people don’t live their soul purpose because they think is too risky.
There are always risks!
There is one common thing, that happy and powerful people have in common:They live their soul purpose.
Here are some questions that will help you to understand and be sure if you are living a life with purpose.
1.- PROPER EDUCATION
Are you studying? Do you do it on a regular basis?
You can never skip that aspect. You have to have systems and you have to have tools to help you reinforce the right type of education.
Do you have conversations with your mentors?
Do you regularly seek out contact or an association with people that are strong force attack and they are like minded and they can be happy with your progress?
Is critical because once you’ve got stuck in a certain point of view, you have the same type of philosophy with the same kind of ingredients that got you there since the first place, but a mentor does not have the same attachment.
The mentor asks you questions that are more powerful that the questions you are asking yourself.
Find mentors in your life!
List people that you admired the most.
And this is what you are going to find:
You see, those attributes and characteristics that you admire, well you have it too.
You can not admire something in someone else that you don’t recognize exists. And the way that you recognized that exists is trough your own experience.
3.- CREATE VALUE
Do you create value for yourself and others?
Create value for people
Create maximum value, but if things don’t go exactly the way you planned. You Still GO!
Have you practiced that principle?
4.- ENERGY DRILLS
Is there any relationship or situation in your life that drills your energy, and that it needs to be corrected, addressed, or eliminated immediately?
Are you increasing energy or decreasing energy?
Write down all your activities that you’ve done in all week and then at the end of the week ask yourself.
Did that activity really increased my energy?
What would I do about it?
Do you identify and eliminate energy drills in your life?
Don’t loose your good energy!
Look , it happened to me, and I’m sure, it happened to you too sometime.
When you loose energy, is really hard to focus and is really hard to be happy.
If you do it, you lose confidence, when you do, your energy drain. This is the way we lose.
5.- ATTRIBUTES trough FEEDBACK
Have you ever wondered what are the things that you do best?
Do you know that your career does not define your soul purpose?
It is always good to receive feedback from your colleagues, or nearest friends. To improve our fields, and to understand our talents or our abilities.
When your mind is full of thoughts, is hard to have clear ideas. Is simply like your computer or your smart phone. Don’t open too many windows or it will crack.
Think about it!
Meditation is an excellent investment.
Breathing exercises, siting on a specific time by your own to connect, a time to be quiet. Practice whatever you think it helps to have new ideas, and to create.
Spend time doing your hobbies, maybe a hobby will turn in to something productive!
What is it that you enjoy, doing it personally that you could do it professionally.
Isn’t that kind of fun that we could do things that we love to do an actually get paid for it?
ASK THIS TO YOURSELF
If you are not living your soul purpose, which are the things that you quite doing immediately?
What is the think that you love?
Do you realize you have power?
Do you realize you are the author of your life?
Do you constantly make choices that are aligned with your values?
In which way this impact with your purpose?

I’m happy when I’m being productive, I’m happy when I’m learning new things, when I’m enjoying family time, when I see my kids happy, I’m happy when I’m engaged in a smart conversation, etc.
When are you happy?….

What situations make you creative?

If you could make only one improvement that will make a big difference in your life. What would that improvement be?
If someone gives you a hammer, would you use it to build something? Or would you use it to destroy something? You have the two possibilities.
Start to answer to yourself these questions and move forward.
What would you do immediately to start your soul purpose?
Do you have a clear action for living more on your soul purpose? I mean, a plan of action?
Do you know how to utilize your soul purpose in the market place?
Do you know how to be profitable with your soul purpose?
As you get cleared with your self purpose, you will have a vision.
According to Garrrett Gunderson your true peace of mind is when you are in harmony with your soul purpose, remember that passion follows purpose, so be clear in your purpose. When you don’t have it, you can get distracted, you get drained. If you don’t follow what you love, life is gonna pass you by.
Your purpose is for you, unique and individual to you.
