The Purpose Driven Life and How To Find It

The Purpose Driven Life and How To Find It

The problem with people trying to find their purpose in life, is that a majority of them, lack the mental intelligence of coming to a conscious understanding of defining what that purpose is. If you have ever nonchalantly sat down and said, "Hey, I'm a shithead and I need to find better things to do with my time, think I'll sit down and find my purpose." You'd be going about it the wrong way, essentially, playing into the reason you haven't found it the previous 20 times.

In order to find your purpose, your mind must first be in a heightened state of consciousness, it's not enough to simply want to find your purpose. If you haven't opened a book in 10 years, or been attending your weekly seminars that teach you how to empower your mind in the next 21 days, how do you expect to just sit down and find your entire life's purpose in one sitting?

Your lack of intelligence on any subject will always be directly linked to the efforts that you put into learning about how to master it, on your own. Think for a moment, about your level of conscious awareness to the world around you right now. Are you at a heightened state of consciousness, do you feel as if your mind is looking at you from above, giving you all the answers at a moments thought, the answers that you seek? If so, than maybe you are ready to find purpose. Now, if you haven't been trying to intelligently raise your state of well-being, because you have been to engrossed with how emotionally depleted you feel, then you should probably not try to find purpose, today. At least until you work on heightening your self-awareness.

Before I turned 30 years old, I constantly lived in a state of lowered mindfulness, living each day as if I were in a brain fogged coma, never trying to spark my need for powerfully changing my thoughts. Growing older I began to learn that if I wanted to find purpose, I would have to change the thoughts I had about myself, which would then cause me to seek more knowledge, leading me to inch up the rungs of the mysterious conscious ladder of awareness.

The brain you are born with is unique to your body, your skills and the limitations of it's atrophy. Think of your brain as a muscle that gets stronger as you exercise it. By exercising through mind games, reading books, practicing and learning new things you can become smarter, despite what some medical experts lead you to believe. That, you are born either dumb or smart and you can not change that.

Raising your level of conscious awareness must be done in order to find a higher purpose. Start building skills that you have allowed to remain dormant inside of you.

People seeking to find their ambitions in life, while in a constant state of depression and lower leveled thinking, tread dangerous waters in their mindless search. Early, in the age of consciousness we are barraged with environmental decisions. These decisions are subconsciously pounding our minds by the people in our inner circles, constantly changing are, our views and judgments, by continuing in this low state of mind, we can not grow to find our highest self.

From the bullies who mocked you in high school, to your parents telling you how much they dislike the president in the White House, this daily stimuli has a lasting effect on the choices you make in life, forging and creating the possible outcome of your life's purpose. Finding false purpose by these negative situations, can be the result of having chose to take the easy way out by using someone else's purpose in life as your own. Beware, when you come across these people who focus on the life mantra of, anything that sounds good, goes, this shallow pool of self-realization is not healthy for you to get involved in when you sekk self-mastery. 

The purpose driven life is made for individuals that stick it out in the intense adversity that life gives them. There is an exercise that is said to help you find your purpose, that may be so, if you don't give up 5 minutes before you are shown your profound revelation. When you start this exercise, don't go into it lightly, you will get the most out of it when you complete it in its entirety.  Sit down in a room by yourself, in isolation and allow your mind to reveal it's secrets. Many of you, (myself, in the past) that have gone through the steps to finally raise your level of self-awareness will fall victim to contentment, you become stagnant, failing to grow even taller.

If you are serious about finding your life's purpose and completing the exercise, you can shoot me an email or contact me, I'll be sure to send it to you.

You are taught to believe that you have a predestined life purpose, from birth and you must walk the streets of life everyday to find what it is, otherwise you will die without having led the life that you were destined to live. I have news for you, I don't believe we have a predestined purpose for our lives. This simply is not true, our environment, our work ethics, mixed with countless other life factors create our aspirations. Something else to think about, these aspirations will evolve over time, challenging you to constantly search for an even higher purpose for your life. Those who are never satisfied with where they are in life, go on to create valuable products, services, and never stop when they find the life that calls to them, they press, continuing to look upwards.

“Continue seeking a higher level of self-awareness each day, whilst, keeping a disciplined mindset to continue writing, in order to help you who seek to find purpose.”

    Begin Feeling Great- 21Day Fix

    This Makes You Happy

     

    True conscious growth comes at the moment when you finally realize that you have been in a series of months lead with constant positive thoughts, months of feeling deeply great about yourself.


    Think about it this way, there are 5 types of feel good chemicals inside of your brain, 6 if you count nor-epinephrine, starving for some attention. In order to benefit fully from their positive impact you must first activate their core, feed them oxygen and they will supercharge your body to achieve greatness at the highest level of consciousness. Once you have shocked them back to life, keeping them maintained becomes a life long commitment, this is easier said than done for most. You can get it done.

     

    Laying Dormant

     

    Tom was a basket case in the winter, he would always give in to the changing of the weather, not wanting to work out, in fact he just stopped providing his brain the proper chemical boost that was needed to push through these long cold nights. Oxycontin is activated in the brain by taking action steps in life, this gives a feeling of falling in love or when one comes home after a long hard day. As Tom held up in his room all day staring blankly at his television set watching “wings” for the 30th time, his feelings of joy and content were replaced with fear and isolation. If only he could find the energy to venture into the world again to replenish the imbalance inside him.

     

    In order to ignite the release of these chemicals that lay dormant within you, I would suggest you begin monitoring your thoughts throughout your day, keep track of them in a journal this way you can always have foresight into what thoughts you allow to take root within yourself. Are your thoughts congruent with the actions you take, of course they are. In any case, were not going to be able to stop our negative thoughts 100% but I can tell you that with building a habit of positive thinking, the negatives tend to be far less accessible to your conscious mind.

    The “Feel Good” Chemicals

     

    • Endorphin– Any of a group of peptide hormones that bind to opioid receptors and act as neurotransmitters. Endorphin reduce the sensation of pain and affect emotions. 
    • Dopamine– A catecholamine neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, retina, and sympathetic ganglia, acting within the brain to help regulate movement and emotion: its depletion may cause Parkinson’s disease. 
    • Oxycontin– A polypeptide hormone, produced by the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland, that stimulates contraction of the smooth muscle of the uterus.
    • Nor-Epinephrine– Also called nor-adrenaline. Physiology. a neurotransmitter, released by adrenergic nerve terminals in the autonomic and possibly the central nervous system, that has such effects as constricting blood vessels, raising blood pressure, and dilating bronchi. 
    • Prolactin– An anterior pituitary polypeptide hormone that stimulates lactation by the mammary glands at parturition in mammals, the activity of the crop in birds, and in some mammalian species the production of progesterone by the corpus luteum.

    Activating

     

    Focused positive thinking provides a jolt of energy for the pleasure center in your mind, much like jump starting your car back to life. Start to proclaim a series of confident aspirations for 21 days in a row and you will see a paradigm shift in your daily emotions. Seemingly forcing these affirmations are foreign and often extremely difficult for the pessimist at first, but once a habit of conscious thought management starts taking place, the pessimist will turn into quite the optimist.

    Set backs are part of life, understanding this while maintaining specific aspirations will enable you to remain calm, cool and collected in time of uncertainty. When you unknowingly force defeating labels on yourself this takes away from the good that positive emotion creates.

    Maintain the Feeling

     

    Now that you are beginning to feel good each and everyday, its like anything else, you need to do maintain that feeling. Doing daily routine maintenance for your brain stimuli is that life long task I told you about before, it comes from choosing to activate your chemical center, routinely. The reason you have to continue to keep up with your emotional high from these happy chemical releases is that they act similar to a drug inside of you. Drugs have this come down period, the time when the chemical wears off leading to chemical withdrawal. Another way of understanding this is to think for me if you will, of an alcoholic who self medicates himself with this drug causing him to feel happy, he can control his dose and keep himself feeling that high, its not until the drug wears off that his chemicals inside his brain become dangerously low.

    Maintaining your emotional high is your best defense in continuing to feel good, it is far more difficult and painful to raise your brain chemicals from rock bottom to its peak, then it is to keep them at their synergistic level. Personally, I choose to swim hard and fast, the endorphin release inside my blood stream keeps me chasing that high, continually. Endorphin build up when your body has injuries and pain. As you run, swim or do exercise of any kind these endorphin are released to mask the pain, which is what enables the injured mother to run back to her faint child when thrown out of the car, endorphin keep you feeling good in the presence of pain.

    Come Full Circle

     

    Take steps to share your profound feeling of pleasure, further reinforcing your chemical high. Look back over the past months, visualize and recall the moments when positive change took place. Sit your friends and family down, share with them the truths that were revealed to you in your quest to feeling great. Anyone worth befriending will be more than encouraged by your rapid transformation that they themselves will release dopamine inside their brain. As you see others feeling great you will have fueled your bodies desire for more chemical relief, keeping you from falling victim to withdrawal symptoms of setbacks. 

     

    Why Self-Esteem

    Becoming a Man of Fear

    As a young boy I remember being lonely quite often, the days seemed to drag on forever in the congestion of my large metropolitan city. The simple pleasures of shooting imaginary men in my backyard while I pretended to scale a ravine that wasn't really there, seeing it in my mind; went unnoticed by my family. It wasn't until I started high school that my family had noticed a sudden, drastic shift in my moods and thoughts, lashing out in anger more frequently than as a child, and that's saying a lot. One doesn't understand low self-esteem in the early stages of their lives, (psychologists say the age of 5 is the age a person becomes consciously aware of their surroundings) it's not until years of abuse and ridicule caused by negative self labeling that the mind peeks out from hibernation to destroy a person.

    Walking through the crowds of people in the large covered halls of high school, the smell of fear ran its course in my mind. Intensely I began to shake and twitch as others spoke to me, this had never happened before. Junior year, for the first time in my life I began to see and notice how poorly I thought of myself. I was meeting people who were, "smarter" than me, and that was terrifying. I'm going to call her Brooke, her beautiful sun shown blonde hair flowing so effortlessly in the wind as I sat behind her, we joked until the bell rang. We never had any sexual tension, always just friends, nothing more. She would tell me to "talk faster" , "don't be so quiet", not realizing the hurt that her unfiltered words would have on my life in the long scheme of year to come.

    At the dawning of everyday, I woke to the creation of my own despair within my thoughts, I was purposely filling my mind with dread and worry. Constantly murmuring, "I am not good enough", "I talk too slow, who will be my friend?"
     
    Naturally, I felt the shame of powerlessness in simple everyday life. To define my self-esteem at this point was to go back over 15 years of my life and gather all the painful, thrashing blows which I personally took upon myself, after the constant bullying from others. If not for the snarled, fierce looks I caught from the people who disproved of my existence, I wouldn't be writing to you about personal growth. I can be thankful for that.

    Self-esteem makes up the beliefs that you have about yourself, these beliefs give way to an emotional release inside your body which causes you to act them out in society. The underlying fact is, what you think about yourself will conceive your self-esteem within yourself, be that positive or negative interpretations.

    a man of habits

    Growing older, I have seen the harmful effects that negative self-esteem issues have had on my life as a whole. If it hadn't been for low self-esteem I wouldn't have my wonderful blogs, nor would I be so fascinatingly passionate about helping others succeed in their own growth. Factoring in 25 the years of neglect on my happy psyche I finally began to work on habits of positive change for myself. I taught myself, often forced myself to read books on personal development, later I would seek help from a therapist who came to change my entire way of thinking as a whole. Literally, I started replacing one bad habit (thought) at a time with habits that had brought huge success to others. This was what I was created for, writing to help others like you, like myself, overcome the challenges we all face in forcing unrelenting, nagging labels on our selves, through the faults of our parents and generations before us.

    a man of books

    Last I remember, the bible had over 6.5 Billion copies in print and has sold over 5 billion copies to readers that span the entire global hemisphere, making it the best-selling book of all time.
     
    Not so unbelievable to the faithful Christian who knows that the Bible is all God inspired work. He provides His people with Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Really, His secrets to living a fulfilling life for His people. Deducing through internet information that there have been over 180 trillion people on the planet since B.C. when the population was 2. Yes, the two in the garden, this is a small percentage of people buying His book. The bible has been far more profitable to me in my journey to excellence than any other book written on the topic of becoming my best self.
     
    Another book instrumental to my growth has been James Allen's, As a man thinketh. Hundreds of truth nuggets fill all 80 pages (depending on what copy you have) of his book dealing with human thought. making a conscious effort to think positive in all situations would prove to be a powerful tool in my growth as a man.

    a man of positive esteem

    The outdated habits of spouting off, "I am not smart", "I can't-do this", were transformed into healthier actions of, "I need to find another way", " I choose to act confident and disregard what other people say about me." Years would pass, adding more books of self-esteem than I can count on two hands to my library was the best thing I did for myself back then.


    Self esteem quotes filled my computer screen daily and from then on I focused on joyful aspirations towards my future. "No one can make you (me) feel inferior without your (my) consent."-Eleanor Roosevelt.
    Learning that if I was to go somewhere far greater than where I had been stuck for my whole life, I would have to find a purpose to my life, a purpose for living. Isn't that what people with low self-esteem lack, a purpose for living life? Managing this new purpose of wanting to help others succeed has given me the ability to think clearly and write so ferociously.

    “The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder.”
    -Nietzsche
