Day #31  Fearless

Happy Fearless Friday!

Last Friday’s blog took the second step toward identifying your purpose in life by dissecting your fondest desire. Click here if you didn’t read it.  

This week’s step is taking the information gathered and turning it into one word.

Yes, one word.

Your purpose is not a mission statement. It is a direction.

Your purpose is not a goal. Goals are chosen, created, attained and changed often. A purpose is constant.

Yes, we all have a common purpose to love. Yet even the CEO’s handbook says people have different gifts (Romans 12:4-8 KJV). With those gifts we find our purpose in life and spread the love.

Now, get out your work from last week. Do you see a pattern emerging? What is the essence of all the activities and qualities? Your inner voice will tell you, “Hey, this is what I’ve always done, it isn’t going away. Every motivation, job, interactions with people this surfaces.

Dial it down to one word.

Here are just a couple of suggestions; however you have to make your own discovery for the word that best fits your purpose.

My purpose is to:

Heal * Entertain * Lead (Leader)

Design * Build * Inspire * Teach

 Coach * Give * Explore * Motivate * Nurture

A lifetime of career, professional, marriage, family, social, spiritual goals, actions, and affirmations can be designed to encompass and align with your purpose.

Today’s word is Fearless. I am fearless. I am willing to do the work to discover my purpose and dial it down to one word. 

Transformation, one word, one day at a time.

Change your outlook.

Change your behavior.

When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.

Day #24  Fearless

It’s Fearless Friday!

What step can you take today to move toward your fondest desire, discover your purpose, and share with the world your gifts and talents?

Last week you were encouraged to imagine it’s your 90th birthday and you’re asked, “Any regrets?”

Did you write down your answer?  Did you fill in the blank, “Well, I wished I would have ______________.”

Did your instinct, your inner voice reveal something that surprised you or is this something you’ve had a passion to do for a long time? Perhaps you came up with several things you yearn to do.

You might have ended up writing down what you are not happy doing. Venting about feeling dissatisfied and miserable about your current career or lifestyle.

That’s okay! Being that uncomfortable means it’s really time to change direction and select a new path.

Today we’re going to take your “fill in the blank” answer and identify what gifts and talents it takes to fulfill it.

Refuse to worry or concentrate on the how you’re going to fulfill it.

Right now you’re simply on a discovery mission to break it down to gifts, talents, skills.

Do you need math skills?  Communication skills?  Dancing lessons? Singing lessons? Do you need to listen well? Do you need the ability to play, think freely or strategically, to build or motivate? Do you need mechanical skills?

What makes it so appealing to you? What passion does it ignite? What resonates with you?

If you could turn back the hands of time or move forward to the future and fulfill your desire(s) what emotions do you feel?

Are people involved?

Is there an audience, are you part of an audience, behind the scenes?

List the positive qualities it takes to fulfill your fondest desire.

Next week, I’ll show you how to use this information to find your purpose.

Today’s affirmation is, “I am Fearless. Today I am willing to examine my deepest desires and take another step toward learning my purpose.”

Transformation, one word, one day at a time.

Change your outlook.

Change your behavior.

When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.

Day #17  Fearless

It’s Fearless Friday!

Every Friday I’m going to encourage you to be fearless and take a step toward your fondest desire and share with the world your gifts and talents.

This week’s step is identifying your fondest desire. Have you stopped putting everyone else ahead of you and taken time to figure out what you want to do? If not, it’s time to find out.

Please don’t do what I did and wait decades to acknowledge the power of your gifts and find the courage to pursue your dreams. To become the best person you are capable of being.

Imagine it’s your 90th birthday and you’re asked, “Any regrets?”

“Well, I wished I would have __________.” Fill in the blank with the first answer that pops up. If you respond with more answers, write everything down.

Do it quickly. Pay attention to your first instinctive response(s). What does your gut tell you? No matter how wild and outrageous or simple and ordinary just listen to your inner voice.

Don’t think about it and if you do, don’t think about it too long. That’s when your mind starts revving up with fifty thousand reasons why you can’t do what you yearn to do.

I truly believe the CEO of the Universe has a position for each of us in his organization.

What you yearn to do in the deepest regions of your heart usually matches the “job description” the CEO has designed for you. Sometimes, though it just doesn’t look like what you expected.

Trusting that only good will come increases faith and decreases fear.

We all have gifts and talents that can make a difference in another’s life. We must stop second-guessing ourselves and letting fear tie us to our doubts. One of the saddest and most wasteful acts is to be afraid and bury our gifts, our talents.  (Matthew 25:14-28 KJV)

Let’s be fearless and never miss out on the opportunity to be aware of what we are designed to be.

The affirmation for today’s word is, “I am Fearless. I am asking with gratitude to be shown my gifts and purpose. I am willing to be fearless and share them with the world.”

Transformation, one word, one day at a time.

Change your outlook.

Change your behavior.

When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.

Day #10 FEARLESS

Woo-hoo it’s Fearless Friday! Thanks to Erin Mecseji, PCC, CPCC
Leadership and Personal Coach I have a new mantra “Embrace Imperfection.”

I spent pretty much my whole life trying to be perfect. Imperfection and failure was not an option.

So guess what? The one dream that is nearest and dearest to my heart, getting one of my books published, hasn’t happened. Too afraid to let anyone see my work.

The writing isn’t perfect yet.

I might have failed to get the character arc right. The humor might fall flat or maybe it’s too serious and maybe . . .  yadda yadda yadda . . . yawn.

It’s time to embrace imperfection and see failure as a good thing or go to the grave with the books inside me instead of on Amazon, or in a book store, or in a library. Or better yet in your hand.

We know what I would do.  How about you?  What would you do if you felt no fear and knew you could not fail? (Based on a quote by Robert H. Schuller)

Today’s affirmation is “I am fearless and willing to believe failure is good for it teaches me what I need to know and learn and what I need to release.”

I’ll be repeating it several times today with you. And cheering for you to be fearless and take a step toward your dream.

Need help on figuring out the next step to your dream? I highly recommend you contact Erin and see if she has an opening for a new client at Encompass-Coaching.com.

 Transformation, one word, one day at a time.

Change your outlook.

Change your behavior.

When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.
