Who Do You Think You Are?

Are you totally in love with your life?

Whatever your current situation I want to give you some food for thought?

Your current level of love, passion and intensity for your everyday life is directly proportionate to how close you currently live to the purpose for which you came to this life.

Take an office worker. Is he going to work because of his love for paperwork or because he has an intense passion to crunch numbers? Or a receptionist, is she going to work because of her deep love for answering ringing telephones and the thrill of asking the question, 'May I help you?' Of course not; like millions of others they are both going to work to earn money to pay for the necessities in life.

But just for a moment let's question the necessities. Sure a five bedroom home, the luxury car and the two week holidays abroad are all great, especially when you measure your success, as nearly all of us do, by what we 'have' and what we're 'doing'. The only problem is, 'having' and 'doing' have very little to do with a key factor in what we're 'being' while we're 'having' and 'doing'.

'Being' is all about 'who you are'. Sure you can have all the material things in the world, but if you have to sell your soul for forty years doing something which you have no passion for in order to 'have' and 'do' ? or in other words 'look good' to others ? then, have you been who you really are and do you really need to question why you might not be feeling aroused, playful and passionate. Sounds a bit like good sex?

And living life can be like good sex? great sex? And I bet great sex for forty years interests you more than working passionless, grinding hours!

In order to live life with passion you need to find purpose. And when I say 'purpose' I mean, 'Life purpose'. And when I say 'Life Purpose' I mean, understanding the unique gift ? that special talent that got buried long ago due to all that necessity you created in order to look good ? and expressing it in a distinctive way.

The problem you might have is uncovering that talent and then finding a viable way to make a living. But that is really all just stuff and nonsense. When you're involved in your passion and remain open to the possibilities out there waiting for you, you can be swept along on a wave of possibility.

So, to return to our original question, "Who are you?" Are you someone who is willing to be swept along on a wave of possibility, adventure and life or will you hang onto what doesn't excite you?

Life is for living.

Best wishes
