What Drives you?
Is it money, wealth, recognition, the need to own an awesome car....or something deeper?
When we strip away the trappings of life and we lay on our death bed considering what we've achieved, will we measure our success based on the number of fancy cars, smart phones and watches we have?
I don't think so. When my father lay on his death bed and I sat with him watching him gradually slip away, there was only one thing left: Love. The love of a son for his father, and the love of a father for his son. Nothing else mattered at that point.
So I'd like you to take a moment out of your busy life to ask you what really drives you? What's really important to you? What do you want to make of your life? What do you want to achieve? Answer these questions with the filter of love behind it.
What drives me?
Quite simply - it's The Truth.
I summed it up in an interview I gave last year when I said this:
"When you access the Truth that's already within yourself, and you tell your Story - Magic Happens."
I'm driven by the need and desire to help people discover the truth behind why they are here, and to help them tell their Story - so they make a connection with the people who need their help. In other words I am a Truth Finder - someone who is able to bring the Truth out from within others, so they can get on with the work they were sent here to do. If that means they give up a career as a marketing consultant and launch a business to help connect French grandparents with their Australian grandchildren - through a simple Storytelling app - then so be it. I don't care what the Truth is - I don't judge - I just get on with discovering.
So I urge you to stop pretending that you don't know that there's a higher Purpose for you on this planet. I encourage you to explore what that purpose really is, and to start working on that Purpose today. Not tomorrow, or next year, or (God forbid) when you are lying on your deathbed wondering where all that time went. I ask you to consider what really drives you, so you can act on that drive and make a difference in this world. And I implore you to start that process now.
