Today, I want to talk about how you can find your purpose. There are various ways to find a purpose, including the course that I'm creating, which will be available in less than 30 days. It focuses on turning pain into purpose. However, there are other methods to discover your purpose.
One of the easiest ways is to ask yourself a few questions. Here are five simple questions that can guide you toward finding your purpose:
1. If money and time were not an issue, what would you do with your 9-to-5?
2. What activity or service do you love to do and could get paid well for, but you would do for free?
3. What is the biggest problem you or your family have overcome in the last 3 to 5 years?
4. What is the biggest problem your community needs to overcome in the next 5 to 10 years?
5. What is the biggest problem in our nation or the world that needs to be overcome in the next 10 to 20 years?
These are simple yet profound questions that can guide you toward your purpose. As a bonus, I have one more question for you, inspired by my father, J. D. Murphy. It's actually quite simple, but very powerful. My father likes to ask people,
“What do other people come to you for?"
For example, in my case, people come to me for either physical fitness or martial arts training. I regularly receive requests for advice in these areas, which is why I built my entire business around them. Consider what people come to you for—whether it's relationship advice, car expertise, stock market insights, or parenting tips. You may discover your purpose lies in providing guidance or expertise in those areas.
I hope these questions help you in your journey to finding your purpose. Let's talk again soon.
Do you feel caught in a rut, doubting your accomplishments, or unclear of your life's purpose? If so, you may be experiencing a midlife crisis.
Midlife crisis is a time of life, usually between the ages of 45 and 64, when people feel anxious or dissatisfied due to a range of circumstances such as aging, changes in family relationships, or feeling unsatisfied. While not everyone goes through a midlife crisis, research suggest that up to 10% of Americans are impacted.
Some of the most prevalent signs of a midlife crisis can be feeling purposeless, high level of stress or anxiety, deep depression, behavioral changes, a sense of nostalgia or desire for the past
Here are a few ideas to help you get through a midlife crisis:
Speak with a professional: Make an appointment with a therapist or counselor who can help you get insight into your thoughts and feelings and provide advice on how to proceed.
Reconnect with your passions: Incorporate activities that you like into your routine, whether they are new or old. Doing something that makes you happy might help you revive your passion and sense of purpose.
Speak with trustworthy friends and family: Expressing your emotions to loved ones may be freeing. They They can provide you with new perspectives on your circumstances as well as insights about your relationships.
Take care of yourself: Make self-care activities such as exercise, diet, and enough sleep a priority. These can assist to reduce stress and enhance a sense of well-being.
Remember that a midlife crisis is a natural aspect of life and an opportunity to rethink your objectives and find new methods to move forward. If you're feeling lost, remember that there are resources and techniques to assist you in navigating this new chapter of life.
Seek help from a healthcare professional or a support group if you or someone you know is experiencing a midlife crisis.
I hope this helps, Bless!
Today, I want to talk to you about how you can use pain and turn it into purpose (part 1). I will break it down in terms of exactly how the formula works, give you some examples of people who have done it, and lastly, share an example that worked for me. There are many ways this can be done, but essentially it’s a process of what’s called “transmutation”. The first time I heard about this word was when I read the book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. He talked about how you can use energy (primarily sexual energy) to create wealth by transmitting that drive into a professional drive. However, transmutation doesn’t just apply to sexual energy; it can apply to all kinds of energy, including negative or dark energy. You can use negative energy and transform it into a positive outcome.
A classic example is Michael Jordan. You probably already know that Michael Jordan didn't make the high varsity school team, which motivated him to train harder and eventually become, in my opinion, the greatest basketball player of all time. However, what you may not know is that Michael Jordan's growing up, had a fierce rival, an older brother named Larry; who was better at nearly everything, especially basketball. Larry beat Michael 1 on 1 over and over again, to the point where it drove Michael to develop next level competitve mentality that only increased with every let down and loss. Not making the varsity basketball team his sophomore year of high school, losing to the Pistons multiple times the NBA playoffs and even the loss of his father, all motivated Michael Jordan to become the GOAT!
Believe it or not, there are many people in the tech and business world who also utilize the transmutation to become successful as well. As a personal trainer in the Silicon Valley area, I’ve worked with many people—doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, CEOs—and I’ve gotten to know the story behind the story. It’s not uncommon for highly ambitious people, especially for men, to use some kind of negative situation or emotion as fuel to be a driving force to push themselves to the highest levels of their respective fields.
