I find it intriguing just how many supposed experts and course have cropped up the past 2 years. I look deep at these courses professing expertise, wealth and think to myself ah I’d like some wealth or I’d like to be a meditation expert, a data scientist, a digital guru and a purveyor of purpose. I will narrate a video over the top of a picturesque view while I sit on a mountaintop and meditate and you look on from within your Youtube escape (or maybe Vimeo) and dream. You’d like to be me, you’d like to have my pole position on the podium, speaking while others listen and rapidly reaching for your wallet so you can buy nirvana. Your nirvana in ten steps with a list of specific goals.
I’d like people to follow my ten simple steps leading to five simple next steps followed by the list of most compelling actions you can take to own this fabulous mansion. Or live a life free of constraints, a life of ultimate purpose where what you do matters to all you speak with, but most of all what you do means to you. Your goal, but remember the steps and remember my course and do not forget to subscribe because if you don’t subscribe, you’ll miss out on my special class on how to not only live a life of purpose but to also pay to be part of my mastermind group.
Because that’s where the magic actually happens, that’s where people who have paid to be part of my life changing group get to tell you how to change your life, and you know what it cost me?
NOTHING! Yep, that’s right, nothing. Becuase people who have paid to learn my path to a purpose (which they were already on mind you) are now offering their services to you guys who are newbies to help you find your purpose. Ultimately, this creates a Purpose Virus. Because the purpose thing was created, and people paid for it to discover there was exactly something they were looking for. I intersected them on their path to find that outcome, their journey inside and they were convinced by me the solution to finding their purpose in life was to do a fantastic course and let me guide them on that voyage.
Ahhhhhhh, breathe. It is just a story, but I am sure many people have had this experience. The money spent does not unearth purpose the work you do in looking at you, and your values help you find purpose. What do you love? What will make you sacrifice everything you own? What would you die for? Whom would you die for?
Moreover, then they do not quite get there, and they feel a bit unfulfilled, and the path is questioned. Their path is gone, faded, they loose their way and get told it is going to be all right I have another course you can take called “Reignite your purpose. ” To reignite your purpose, all you have to do it this pay x amount and join this reignite visionary group. There are others here just like you who have lost their way and rediscovered the path to their purpose. Their yellow brick road to freedom, I run one class per week because my time is super valuable but I have and the elite team of Ignition leaders who will help you find your way to the new kingdom.
Anyway, you get my drift.
I could ramble on about the paid for purpose journey suffocated by procrastinators. The point is there are so many courses online, and if you are on a path and seeking change yes there are many ways you can execute on that change.
I have found the simplest way to make any level of change in your life is to make the decision to change, take action, be it to write it down or tell a friend. Even join a group professing freedom and if you want to change to happen to decide to make the change, decide to do something and then do something every day to build momentum towards your desired destination.
As Tony Robbins said, take massive, decisive action and make great happen one little step at a time. No books, no course just a decision to do something. Want to get fit, do ten push-ups a day. Want to write better do a paragraph every morning. Want to save money, put a gold coin in a jar till it is all full up. Simple small steps lead to massive outcomes.
Make great happen
