We all stumble, we all fall and we all fail. When those things happen, and they will, put in action three simple steps to re-purpose your life and get back on the proverbial “right track”.
STEP 1: BORROW WISDOM
No one likes to ask for help and this step requires us to lower our pride. The beauty about borrowing wisdom is that you can learn from people who have gone before you and gain crucial knowledge on things they did well and things they wish they could have done differently. Borrowing wisdom from the right people is a sure fire way to get you back on track and back on purpose! See who I borrow wisdom from >>
STEP 2: HELP OTHERS
Zig Ziglar said it the best, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough people get what they want.” When you serve others, it creates an intrinsic sense of selflessness and reinvigorates your soul. Especially, when the person(s) you are helping is in no position to do anything for you in return. I have found when I am searching to re-purpose I need to take my focus off of my world and my desires. Helping others has a strong way to clear the lenses of cloudy vision and re-purpose your life for exactly what you are called to do.
STEP 3: RESET
That’s right. Start over. Reset. This step is crucial for re-purposing your life. Here is what happens…
You seek out a mentor and find one.
You pick up a ton of “ah-ha” moments and knowledge.
You begin to shift your focus off your world and actively engage to serve and help others.
Things are going well.
Things are going really well because things are different, this time.
And then you hit a wall.
You get stuck.
You feel as though you are off track, again.
You are stuck, again.
It’s frustrating and it’s exhausting to be at this point.
When this happens, and it does for everyone, reset and start over. No one is keeping score.
