Will you do anything for the people you love? Do you want to make sure they are provided for? Taken care of?
Your children. Your parents. Your peeps.
Recently I read a note from Stephanie who said:
“I feel obligated to maintain a steady income to support my kids. I tell myself that when they are out of the house, then I can figure out what I want for myself.”
Stephanie, I want to talk to you today.
And… anyone else who feels like their purpose isn’t quite here yet.
Let me get this out upfront:
The BEST way to take care of your Loved ones is to live your life as an EXAMPLE of what’s possible.
Your only true obligation in this life is to discover your purpose and live it each day.
When you consider what action to take, what next step to make… and what the priorities of your life are…
It’s important to pay attention to the questions you are asking yourself.
Perhaps one of the greatest questions you can ask yourself when it comes to taking care of your loved ones is this…
“How can I best set an example of what’s possible?”
You see, your loved ones watch what you DO, far greater than what you say.
Your children model your behavior, not your words.
So, this means to take the best care of your loved ones; you’ve got to take the best care of yourself.
Do you want your children to discover and live their purpose?
Then discover and live yours.
Do you want your loved ones to be able to have financial security for the future?
Then tap into the abundance that comes when you bring your purpose to life.
Do you want to take great care of your father/mother and help them retire and have a great quality of life?
Then bring your purpose to life.
Discovering my purpose is what allowed me to have enough funds to pay for rehab for my mother, which was a life-saving moment.
Discovering my purpose is what allowed us to buy a house for loved ones when their home was condemned due to mold.
If you are waiting until they “grow up,” “move out” or for “one day when” you think things will get better… you are not taking the best care of your loved ones.
You are not setting an example of living your best life.
In order to take the best care of your loved ones, you must grow, you must stretch… you must discover your life’s purpose and then dedicate yourself to bringing it to life.
By bringing your purpose to life, you set the example for your children or your parents.
By finding your purpose, you open up the abundance that you know is meant for you, but seems to be alluding you.
By discovering your purpose, you show your loved ones you mean business.
Do not delay your dreams.
Do not set an example of living on the “horizon” for “one day.” They are watching you and they are taking their ques from you.
Whether you know it or not… you are a leader and they are watching your every move.
Instead of saving for a rainy day, invest in a sunny future. Invest in yourself.
Invest in your purpose.
Make discovering your purpose your #1 intention.
Let no excuse get in the way.
Let no limiting belief stop you.
Do whatever you need to do to overcome the fear/trauma/hurt and worry from your past…. and make today and every day forward a day where you are dedicated to brining your purpose to life.
Do not allow any past hurt/trauma/pain or fear stop you. Instead, consider that the trauma of your past is a prerequisite for your purpose.
You were being prepared for THIS.
When you bring your purpose to life…
That’s when abundance comes.
That’s when you have true personal freedom.
That’s when you create true security for your loved ones.
That’s when you set an example for everyone you love about what’ possible.
Within you is power, greatness and the ability to be a role model of what living your purpose looks like.
Have you been focusing on what’s most important… or just being distracted by what’s in front of you?
Make if your intention to make what’s in front of you most important – that is discovering your purpose and bringing it to life.
The only difference between someone who has true freedom, who has work and a career they love, who experiences a truly abundant life… who takes care of their loved ones and gives them the ultimate security…
And someone who is distracted, overwhelmed, not feeling free, waiting until “later” and always worried if they will be able to take care of their loved ones is just one thing…
Those who experience true freedom, abundance and the security to take care of the people that they love know their life’s purpose and are living it each day.
If you’ve tried a lot of different things and it hasn’t worked out, or if you thought you knew what your purpose was and lost it… or if you aren’t sure you have a purpose… or if you know what your purpose, but it’s in process and not quite here yet… that’s okay.
If you really love your peeps, then get about the business of bringing your purpose to life.
Don’t hide behind your loved ones and use them as a reason why you can’t risk/grow and become more.
You owe it to them and to yourself to take the leap and jump into the life that’s waiting for you.
It’s time to remove the hidden blocks keeping you stuck, accelerate your results and bring your purpose to life.
Not sometime in the future… but right… NOW.
You’ve got this. And I’ll be right there with you.
Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!
