Three Key Points:
Give yourself the opportunity to raise your awareness and understand what’s in our conscious and subconscious minds. By doing so you can move beyond “just doing” in our lives, to being present in our lives.
Many people live their lives in a very scripted way by falling back on the safety net of what others have already done. We get very used to suppressing insights and “ah-ha” moments in our lives. Often times that leads people down a path of burning themselves out and it completely rips the passion and purpose out of their lives.
Have a daily ritual where you put your mindset into alignment with your purpose. Allow yourself to evolve your mind daily, whether that’s meditation, affirmations, journaling, or whatever you personally feel helps you align your energy to your passion.
