Let’s take a look at big why!
I have talked about this in many of my trainings and webinars. This is one of the most essential building blocks in your life. A simpler way of looking at big why – you could say purpose, passion, or a deep sense of why you’re here in this lifetime.
Some of these terms can feel pretty overwhelming. And I’m not talking about going through an extensive system to find it all out – that can be another stumbling block for many of us. There are many systems and ways to find out – what do we pick and what do we trust and how do we know if it is accurate.
And then what if you don’t feel the resonance or the connection with what the system says. Or it simply might feel too big or overwhelming to make it happen. All of these are possible and we keep getting disconnected from our deeper sense of purpose.
Let’s simplify to get started and look at your purpose from the lens of your passion. What are you really passionate about?
When you put your hands on your heart and really tune in – “What is it that I would really really want to do if there were no limits of money, resources or time?” Basically no constraints whatsoever!
“What would I want to do?” It could be as simple as “I want to help people”. Good point and great beginning! You can start from there. And then build to more such as – I want to educate people or build schools in a village.
The environment is a big part of my big why – I also support organizations such as Pachamama and a few others that support planet preservation. This is something I’m definitely very passionate about.
So the one criteria for your big why – is that it has to be way bigger than you and scary at some level. It’s not something you can accomplish on your own. You will need your community, additional support and resources to make it happen – let’s say team work!
If it is too small or easy then it will not motivate you enough to keep you going 🙂
Here’s an example from my side that brings the elements together for my big why. When I look back on my own journey, two elements really stand out for me. One is safety. The other is power or empowerment.
It has been quite a journey for me to claim and integrate these into my own life at different levels. And what I’ve realized along the way, working with clients all these years is that safety is one of the big reasons people come to me. They feel safe to heal and transform at a deep level as I provide a compassionate and non-negotiable container for what’s possible. In this process they take back their power and that is literally the core of everything I do.
The purpose of my existence is to help people feel safe and empowered in their body, in their home and on the planet. This helped me tap into my own Inner Spark.
It motivates me to do what I do every day. There are days I don’t feel like doing anything but what gets me back is my inner spark – the bigger reason for my existence. There’s a higher purpose that keeps me going and the fire burning bright and strong.
I now want you to yours – your big why. What are you so passionate about that you can just keep going no matter what time of day or night. What are you so passionate about that you know you need a bigger, larger community to support you to make it happen. Whether it is for the planet or the people.
Get started now. Never too late no matter how old or young you are.
I would love to hear from you what your big why is. Share it with us and let us know how we can support you. So you can move forward and fulfill the purpose that you signed up for in this lifetime.
