10 Questions to Amplify Your Life Purpose


princess dianaWhen I was a kid, I wanted to be like the late Princess Diana. I really admired her. I first learned about her when I saw a picture of her in Cambodia where she was comforting kids who had been hit and crippled by landmines. I admired the fact that she was a princess who wasn’t afraid of serving others or getting her hands dirty. As I matured, I continued researching about her and later learned that she worked with different charities to serve the less advantaged and/or those who were affected by HIV/Aids and consequently, my admiration for her increased. Based on this, I decided that I wanted to work for the United Nations, in a war zone to serve those who were less advantaged. After college, I started searching for ways to join the UN. And in 2000, I finally got my first assignment working with the United Nations Mission in Kosovo.

Why am I telling you this?

The point of the story is that I created this vision in my mind before I could practically experience it in my physical reality. It was like I made a wish which was finally granted. Although it took many years before I realized this dream, the fact is that I dreamed about it first. I knew what I wanted. At one point when I was getting frustrated that I may never realize my dream, my grandmother told me to keep visualizing and to keep the faith that my dream was possible to achieve.

life purpose

It is often indicated that, “As within, so without,” meaning that whatever we create in our minds with clarity, firm intention and faith, will be manifested in our physical realities. Note that the only place where everything is possible is in your mind.

Whatever we create in our minds with clarity, firm intention and faith, will be manifested in our physical realities.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to get you to think about what you want, who else you can be, and the abundant possibilities available for you to explore.

Take time to think through these questions and then write down your answers. Feel free to rewrite the answers until you feel comfortable with them. Remember to imagine that there are no limits and that your desires can be realized.

If your dreams make sense to a lot of people, dream bigger until everyone calls you a dreamer.

  1. How much money do you want to possess? (Please indicate any amount of money you want. Do not limit yourself.)
  2. If you were super-wealthy, what would you do on a normal Monday morning?
  3. What is your dream career/job/work?
  4. If your success was granted what product, service or idea would you offer to the world?
  5. If you were to have your own television show what would you talk about and who would be your audience?
  6. Which celebrity or famous person’s career and lifestyle do you admire and why?
  7. If you were offered a new home of your choice, what would it look like? Where would it be located?
  8. If you were to be in perfect health—mind, body and spirit, how would that feel?
  9. If God/Creator or whoever you believe in, were to physically appear in your bedroom on a Sunday morning, what would you ask for?
  10. If you were granted any number of years to be alive, how many years would they be and what would you do with your life?

These questions will get you thinking beyond appearances. If you take time to search for answers that sit well with you, you will discover that you can dream as big as you want with a possibility of realizing these dreams.

Remember, if your dreams make sense to a lot of people, dream bigger until everyone calls you a dreamer.

Is Your Job Progressing, or Retarding You?


Screen-Shot-2013-11-08-at-1.10.37-PM

In school, for the most part we are programmed to believe that the only way to make it in life is to work for others. And although there’s nothing wrong with being employed, the danger is when we either don’t earn what we deserve or don’t ask for what we deserve because we don’t feel worthy.

In this short video, I share a few insights to inspire you to recognize your worth and then act accordingly.

7 Budgeting Mistakes to Avoid


budgeting

Budgeting is crucial to efficient and effective financial management. When we don’t budget, we end up either squandering money or missing out on paying for important and/or time sensitive transactions.

Note that the lack of budgeting is the very reason why the poor remain poor–because they don’t take time to think about what they want and research on how much it will cost.

The question is, how will you know what to spend your money on if you don’t budget? Remember that there is more to living than paying bills. Therefore, take control of your finances and establish budgeting as a mandatory act.

Below are 7 budgeting mistakes to avoid.

7-Common-Budgeting-Mistakes-Pin-740x461

Mistake 1:

When you don’t stick to your savings plan, or when you don’t have a savings plan. In order to achieve financial freedom putting away money as savings to either invest or fall back on in hard times, should be part of the game plan. If you don’t budget for your savings, you are basically rendering yourself vulnerable for financial disaster.

Mistake 2:

When you don’t update your budget plan:

It’s important to update your spending plan so that you are aware of what’s going on periodically. Get a note book, or download an app on your phone (www.everyDollar.com is a good one)) and use these tools to periodically update your budget.

Mistake 3:

When you underestimate or overestimate how much you spend: To avoid this mistake evaluate your previous month’s expenses to use as reference for your spending patterns.

Mistake 4:

When you don’t have a budget: When you don’t have a budget how will you know much to save or what to spend on?

Mistake 5:

When you don’t communicate with your spouse or people in your household about your budget standards: This applies if you have a family. You need to let your spouse know about your budgeting plans so that they spend within its limits.

Mistake 6:

When you only budget once in a while: You have to be consistent with your budget plans. It is an ongoing process, and the good news is that it gets easier with time.

Mistake 7:

Lack of budgeting before your payday: Getting money before you create a spending plan can be dangerous.  Note that by the time you create the plan, half the money will be gone on expenses that can not wait for you to decide whether you need a budget or not.

Note that budgeting is a healthy financial habit that you should embrace. Doing it right will make all the difference, and having a success infused mindset is the starting point.

The Only Competition there is, is with YOU!


Beloved soul,

Know that you are enough, and can never compete with anyone. You are unique, and there’s only one you with your blue print. So, focus on making yourself the best you. Don’t try to compete with anyone. Compete with yourself. Be better today than you were yesterday. Even when you are in a competitive setting, focus on expressing yourself the best way you can. The rest will work out itself.

In this VIDEO, I share an empowerment message with the preceding content as the theme.

Celebrate Yourself – An Inspirational Holiday-season Message


 

Pardon my error, it is 12/24/2017 and not 12/24/2018, like I indicate in the video. I guess, I’m living fast forward. 🙂

In this audio recording, I share my take on what a holiday season and especially Christmas, could be redefined by each of us in order to create individualized experiences that do not only rekindle our spirits, but also contribute to humanity and the environment, rather than take from it continuously without considering the consequences.
