MY FEBRUARY WRITING CHALLENGE: DAY 4 of 28
I'm not sure how I ended up there, but I stumbled upon this video today about "Oprah's Top 10 Rules for Success" and it spoke so deeply to me. The thing I found myself thinking about most was the value she put on finding your purpose. She stressed it as being the most important thing that we do in this world and it was the first time that I've really taken this often abstract statement and understood the depth of its importance. I really agree and I think I've been downplaying its value.
I found mine by asking a few questions that I think are really helpful for anyone looking for more meaning in their life. More direction. More fulfillment. More everything.
A few questions to ask yourself are...
What did I do as a child that made time fly by?
What do I do with my time when my time is my own?
What sort of books do I choose to read? What social media accounts do I follow?
If I had to write a book right now on any topic, what could I qualify as an expert in?
What do I have an insatiable desire to constantly learn more about?
What am I really good at?
On a separate note, I'm going to stop leaving these posts until the last hour before I go to bed. My mind is foggy and tired and I'm forcing this. That is not my intention and I don't think that it is the best way for me to be of service to you through this writing. Morning is my clear creative time and I will strive to make this a part of that practice. I like how vague this feels when I hit publish and nothing happens. The lack of instant gratification is a practice in discipline. A much needed one for me.
