At the beginning of March I started with a plea:
Please don’t allow yourself any excuse for not exploring how to make improvements in your life. And I mean practical things you can do that could dramatically improve your energy, positivity and overall well being and joy for life. Thus allowing you to more easily achieve your goals and live your dreams rather than purely exist.
Recent weeks have seen me blog about the mind, body and heart’s relationship to achieving the above. As you will see from this diagram, used by Stephen R Covey in the 8th Habit, there’s still one element I’ve not covered and that’s SPIRIT. It’s not a topic that’s often discussed in business circles and yet for me SPIRIT is the glue that brings it all together. For me spirit is simply finding a bigger meaning and purpose to what you do. Seán Weafer in a recent blog asked the question "what is the meaning of (your) life" and of course it’s what ever you want it to be. In his blog Seán asks 10 questions to help you identify what a purposeful life would be for you. One question I often ask clients is "what do you get on your soap box about?" I know Neil Dorwood asks "What’s your legacy?"
What ever your answer it’s that which will provide the motivation for you to get up on the days when perhaps your mind, body or heart would prefer that you just stayed in bed.
What do you get on your soap box about? and how does what you do every day connect with that?
