Many people talk about the importance of their "WHY" but what if we take that question deeper and ask why we are here?
One of my favorite authors, John Strelecky, teaches people the value of knowing your PFE (Purpose For Existing)! Understanding our PFE answers the reason we are here, why we were born, why we exist.
Once I was able to put my PFE down on paper, I have found that over the years, it has not changed and it has been an excellent tool for me to use when I feel "off" in my life. I need only to take a look at my PFE to determine where I am out of alignment with my purpose and that usually puts me right back on track with my life.
I talk to many women who are having difficulty creating programs and products for their business but I believe that one of the answers to this dilemma is knowing your life's purpose. For instance, if I were trying to create a program or product for my business that revolved around teaching a class on surfing, this is not something in alignment to my life's purpose. I don't know how to surf and I wouldn't know the first thing to do to teach another person how to surf. How could I possibly teach someone the value of something I have no firsthand knowledge of?
Let's say a really good friend is trying to talk me into teaching the class, she means a lot to me and I want to help her out. The "friend" part of me wants to make her happy but I don't feel excited about teaching the class. When I stop to look at why I don't want to help my friend, I realize that it isn't that I don't want to help my friend. I realize that what she is asking me to do is out of alignment with my purpose and I then have the choice of doing something that is out of alignment with who I am by helping my friend or staying true to who I am.
When I make the decision to stay true to who I am I feel good. For many people, this is where guilt comes up. Guilt convinces so many people to make choices that are out of alignment with who they are because they don't look at the reason for the guilt. Guilt is based on a belief, in this case, a belief that you have to choose what your friend is asking of you over what you really want.
Depending on why your belief about helping others means forsaking your needs, wants and desires will depend on your level of guilt. But what if you had a way to eliminate that guilt by changing what you believe? Many women are guilty of putting the needs and wants of others before themselves and they have done it for so long, they probably couldn't tell you when or why they started making that choice in their life.
When we can look at our beliefs and ask, "Is that true, or is that what I have always believed to be true?" Once you are able to determine that it is your perception of truth rather than actual truth, you are able to look at your choices from a different perception and this process is the key that can open so many obstacles or challenges we face in our life.
So if you are an entrepreneur and you are having challenges coming up with the right products, programs or clients; make sure what you are trying to accomplish is in alignment with your purpose for being here. If you don't know your purpose for being here or are having difficulty putting it into words, connect with me. After all, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over the same way and expecting different results!
