Live life on Purpose

Live your life “on purpose”. What does that really mean?
This morning I had the pleasure of listening to an interview with John Asaraf on YouTube. He speaks of living each day on purpose.
There is so much more knowledge these days about how the brain works.
There is many different ways experts can now map brain function.
Imagine your brain is an orchestra . There are many different parts that make up an orchestra. Compare the conductor to your conscious mind. So imagine that you decide you wanted to improve some area of your life, be it health, wealth, relationships, or whatever. That is your conscious brain or conductor . The conductor now has to get the rest of the orchestra on the same page. But they have the old sheet music and are comfortable playing it. Now the conductor knows that they will be able to learn and master the new selection . So the conductor passes around the new music. Some parts of the orchestra replace the old music sheets with the new selection and begin learning it. But just imagine that one or two musicians did not change to the new music. The music they play is still the old stuff, comfortable and easy. The conductor, upon hearing the dissonance, must stop the music and get the musicians on the same sheets.
Now compare that to you changing your station in life. You may understand that it is certainly possible and create a goal to achieve it. But, like the conductor, there will be parts of your brain that just want to continue doing just exactly what you have been doing all along. You must train the brain in all areas to play the new beat.
So to live a purpose filled life you must find your passion. Then you must upgrade your skills in this area. You must spend some time every day visualizing you as the new you. You also must spend some time each day reviewing past accomplishments. This exercise reminds your brain that even though you had challenges and setbacks you were still able to achieve success. It helps those musicians in your orchestra that are fearful to learn new music, if you will. In order to reach your goal you must believe you can achieve it and be comfortable with being uncomfortable just long enough to change the brain patterns to the new music. So if that is the steps, a little discomfort to get to the new comfort level, I urge you to think big. People making 2 or 3 times more than you are are not smarter or better than you. They just think different . Reality is truly just your perception . So whether you chose a very large goal or just a small goal your orchestra must change their sheet music so why not create a huge goal at the start.
John Asaraf compared your brain to a pot bound plant. Make sure the new pot is plenty big enough to allow for aggressive new growth.

Those who are successful do what others aren’t willing to do

I have put together a montage of famous quotes about success.
John Maxwell
Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.
Mary Kay Ash
If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.
Buddha
All that we are is the result of What we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.
Winston Churchill
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
Booker T. Washington
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.
Ross Perot
Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.
Thomas Edison
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninty-nine percent perspiration.
Mary Kay Ash
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.
Frank Scully

If you can DREAM it, you can DO it.
Thich Nhat Hanh
The present moment is the only moment available to us,and it is the door to all moments.
Glenda Jackson
You’ve got to sing sometimes like you don’t need the money. Love sometimes like you’ll never get hurt. You’ve got to dance, dance, dance like nobody’s watching. It’s got to come from the heart if you want it to work.

“And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
– Abraham Lincoln
