What is it that motivates me to keep going and do what I do? How do I do it?
I’ve been asked these questions countless times.
They initially caught me off guard. But I know they were asked to find clarity for those who were asking.
When someone is in front of me, seeking something I take for granted, I want to help. I want to honour the connection that brought them to ask me the question in the first place.
It got me thinking about the honour of connecting with others, and why I keep seeking to grow into more moments of authentic connection.
What is a life without purpose?
I have been dragged towards the future of an ever-expanding life that I believe serves an ever-expanding purpose.
Sometimes that reality feels heavy. It has had many sacrifices, but I never contemplated not making them. This is my path. I am grateful for life.
➸ A life that can give back where I have been given to.
➸ A life that carved the strength I needed to stand with others where I once stood alone.
➸ A life that mirrors possibility back to people.
➸ A life where others have someone who sees them, believes in them, and knows they are everything they were meant to be and more.
I am human, so much so, that I often feel very different. I do love people. However, I do not love people the way most people do.
I love the person I see within people, the person hiding. I love the greatness in people, despite a billion reasons to hide in self protection.
I was once a person hiding. I still am some days. I wish I had the me of today back in those days. To make up for it, I give that support to others where I can.
I overcome because somewhere deep, deep inside, I believe that every time I overcome, you do too. Not all of you, but some of you, enough of you.
I keep going because it is about more than just me.
I refuse to settle for just business excellence. That bar is not our set point. I am here to support life excellence. The Top 1% Life.
Life excellence will pull you through. The top 1% life will keep you going when numbers, exhaustion, and frustrations make a top 1% business less than desirable, or frankly not worth it.
Purpose, heart, and a passion to serve will keep you going.
I am filled with gratitude for the ability to connect and walk with so many in the coming weeks. Thank you to everyone who allows me to live for a purpose.
