A New Way To Think About Purpose

I attended an event this past weekend where there were 16 passionate speakers, many of them were TEDx speakers.

A majority of the speakers were pointing to the fact that if people don’t have a purpose they’re prone to loneliness, depression and a lack of meaning in their lives.

As I engaged with fellow participants, there was a  both a palatable anxiousness and/or excitement in people’s desire to find their purpose.

Like purpose is somehow the missing link to a high quality life experience.

You see the presenters made a logical and compelling presentation with regards to human suffering, and finding your purpose was offered as a prescription to living a better life than the one they are currently living.

Time to Reflect

So my question is,

Is it true people need to find and live their purpose in order to have a high quality life?

I would like to encourage you to explore purpose for yourself.

1. What does purpose look like to you?

2. What are your ideas about purpose?

3. What do all human being share in common when it comes to purpose?

And The Most Miserable People Are…

In my own personal experience along with my experience of working with hundreds and hundreds of people over the last 25 years.

What I’ve discovered is people in search of purpose or in the pursuit of happiness are some of the most miserable and anxious people I’ve ever met.

So here’s the problem as I see it, people have innocently made  purpose a thing.

Purpose is not a thing, it’s actually a feeling.

And it is this feeling that has the power to guide people through life, helping them navigate the up’s and down’s.

Here’s the real problem, human suffer and struggle and have a wide range of human experiences. This is true.

The problem is human beings don’t know the source of their experience.

And if they did they would stop looking outside of themselves for prescriptions to live a better life that alone would improve their quality of life.

Most people are looking at purpose as a prescription for living a better life.

Once they find their purpose, align with their purpose and live their purpose their life will be more rewarding and fulfilling is their logic.

The problem is that’s not how purpose and meaning actually works.

Looking for your purpose creates the same amount of anxiety as a lost set of car keys, it makes people really anxious and stressed out.

It also bums people out for the fact that they don’t know something or have lost something.

When people get bummed out they typically start to blame themselves or make themselves wrong for the fact that they’ve lost their car keys and in this case they have lost their purpose or their purposes has some how eluded them.

Finding, aligning, in living your purpose is not the solution to a low quality of life.

Looking In New Direction

What is necessary is understanding the human experience.

What matters most is to understand where your experience is actually coming from.

When people stop anxiously searching for their purpose but instead spend more time understanding the nature of life and the nature of the human experience what people often find is that their purpose finds them.

Natures Clue

I often share the following analogy with people about purpose.

Honey bees wake up every morning thinking that their purpose in life is to harvest nectar and make honey.

When in truth a honey bee’s greater purpose is at a 90 degree angle of their honey making intention.

You could say that the honey bees real purpose is to cross pollinate.

Human beings are like money bees. Waking up each day chasing the nectar of life to make money.

And if human beings would simply, stop, reflect and look in a new direction, they too would see that they are already part of a much greater purpose.

You already have a purpose but you just looking in the wrong direction.

I am on a mission to help people stop searching for things outside of themselves and commit to looking within as their primary goal in life.

Fastest Way To Increase Productivity Is Employee Engagement

I was recently published in a Hubstaff article on my thoughts with regards to employee engagement. Here is what I said.

You can hire people’s hands, but you must win people’s heart.

In order to win people’s hearts, you must teach them that engagement is innate and already within them.

One of the biggest mistakes employers make is trying to maximize productivity on the backs and hands of their employees.

Of course, this is shortsighted.

Most experts of employee engagement offer prescriptive or strategic ways to manage and control employees to increase engagement.

Why is employee engagement such a hot topic?

It’s because employers are finally waking up to the fact that low morale is in direct proportion with the employee’s lack of engagement.

And, we all know poor morale is not good for the bottom line.

Here’s the secret when it comes to employee engagement.

Human beings are born to be engaged.

We have an innate ability to find value and meaning in whatever we throw ourselves into.

So, what gets in the way of this innate ability? Self-doubt, second-guessing, and excessive feelings of pressure to perform.

All the above could be summarized in the fact that the employee is drowning in troublesome thought.

The solution is helping the employee get out from underneath problematic thinking.

How Greg helps cultivate a productivity mindset

We work with individuals and teams helping them understand the essence underneath human capital via a transformational conversation delivered over the course of three-to-four days.

We teach people a new way to think about what really drives motivation, engagement, and success.

Our teachings are based on one simple truth about how the mind works, which leads to a vast array of powerful and positive changes.

This inside-out understanding of where people’s experience is coming from holds the key to a satisfying, successful, and inspiring work life.

For example, when we look at engagement from an outside-in approach it would look like the organization, management, or boss is responsible for the employees’ job satisfaction and feelings of engagement.

With an inside-out understanding, the employee takes 100% responsibility for where their moment-to-moment experience is coming from.

With just a little bit of understanding, the employee stops blaming and making excuses for work/life experiences.

When employees get out from underneath extraneous problematic thinking they are naturally more engaged.

Employees who make the link between engagement and enjoyment are obviously happier and more productive employees.

Clarity Of Mind The Key To High Performance

Most people would agree that clarity of mind is a good thing.

Yet those very same people innocently are involved with stirring up the bee hive of excessive thought.

Although people see clarity of mind as a helpful approach to any life encounter, it’s usually the last place they focus on to solve recurring problems, challenges and issues.

I had this really cool experience this week when going though my morning routine.

I was in the bathroom getting ready for my day when I noticed of how quiet everything seemed to be.

And then I realized it wasn’t quiet out there but my mind had settled to an even deeper level of quiet.   Read more

Is Your Win/Lose Thinking Slowing You Down?

Warning!

The following are real lessons and life experiences from the mat. If you are not a fighter try to see where the lesson points you as a metaphor.

I was approached by jujitsu student after class this weekend who ask me a really great question.

He is a purple belt which is kinda the midway point to getting your black belt.

He was sharing with me the fact that he has been introduced to so many techniques and principles on the jiujitsu path but he only has access to the same 2 or 3 techniques when sparring. Read more

Will You Crash or Land?

I would like you to consider trying to land a plane on a cluttered runway.

I don’t care how skilled of a pilot you are, it’s pretty clear that your headed for trouble.

Much like landing an airplane we must make sure that we have cleared or own inner runways in order for success to land.

We all tend to have something that we want to improve or change in our lives.

For many people it’s reconnecting with passions and hobbies, for others it’s spending quality time with the people we care about or for some it’s about accomplishing a meaningful pursuit.

My role as a coach has become increasingly simplified by the fact that there is only ONE real obstruction on the runway in the pursuit of your dreams.

And, it’s EGO.

So, I would like to ask you a question.

If you knew that you were always safe and secure no matter what happens and regardless of any particular circumstances or situations that you would be okay, who would you be?

Here are some of responses that I get from coaching clients and workshop participants.

• I’d feel more comfortable being me
• I’d take more risks
• I wouldn’t take things so personally
• I’d be way more productive

You see when people believe that thier inner security, peace of mind and wellbeing can be taken from them, it makes people nervous, insecure and unempowered.

But when people wake up to the fact that thier peace of mind, happiness and wellbeing are never at the mercy of circumstances or other people, this knowledge alone frees people up and changes how they live and work.

If you would like to learn about this inside out understanding that is transforming people lives around the world consider:

Professionals Discover The Key To High Performance


Dear Professional,

What if the solution to your business performance issues had nothing to do with working harder, creating better systems, more accountability, better processes, the economy, motivation, credentials and education?

Rarely does it occur to a professional that the bottles neck in business performance issues are a result of their feeling state or state of mind.

It’s this internal state of mind of discouragement, dissatisfaction, complacency, lack of enthusiasm and pressure that is responsible for the professionals low energy and poor performance. Read more
