How To Discover Your Purpose In Your Business – Part 1
November 28, 2017 3:52 pm
I’m a huge Tony Robbins Fan. I’ve been to many of his events and I love his work. One of the biggest fundamental lessons I’ve ever had was the first time I went to a Tony Robbins event. A lot of people are skeptical, a lot of people are like, “It looks like a cult” or something and I can understand why. But what I will say is, the growth that I’ve had every time I’ve been to one of his events has been exponential, truly life changing and I say that from my heart, I really do.
One of the most fundamental things of what Tony does is he gets people into a peak state in terms of when you are at your best, when you are working and operating in a place of happiness and excitement then you are going to be producing a lot of better work. You are going to be able to figure out how you’re going to solve any problem. You are going to learn so much more and the point of it is, getting into a peak state allows you to operate in a much higher degree that you would do if you just sat there, slumped over, with poor physiology and a bad posture.
When you are in a peak state, you can imagine what it does for your physiology but also for your mindset as well. They say, when you bring together your physiology, your actual body and your mind and your heart together, it aligns you in a way which is one, puts you in a beautiful state of mind. And it’s incredible.
This is what I’m going to do, today. When I say get into a peak state, this is going to be fundamental for us to really create a powerful vision. I don’t think you are going to be able to create a powerful vision in your company for your future if you’re not inspired and if you are not in a place where you are ready to really create something exciting for you to go ahead and achieve in your business, or in your life. I think you need to be in a right state of mind to do that. So, it’s really, really important to get into a beautiful state.
Tony says, your state determines your story, and your story determines your strategy. I so believe in that. When you are in a bad state it determines your story of what you tell yourself you believe, and your belief determines your strategy. If you are in an amazing state, your mindset is one of positive anticipation. That belief will say to you what strategy you are going to employ to move forward. It’s all about changing your state and that is the fundamental thing.
Every single day in the morning I get into a peak state, its my daily routine. Taking it a step further; throughout the day keep changing your physiology, you’re sat there on your computer chair, slumped over and you are in a panic then change your physiology, get into a peak state and your outlook is changed.
If you’re preparing for a life changing event in your business, (we are going to create something inspiring) then let’s be inspired.
So with that said I’m going to walk you through what it means to do this.
Block Some Time Off
Before you get into this, don’t do this if you got something coming up in half an hour. This whole session really needs half a day to do this. This is not a completed work of art today, so it’s a work in progress. We’re going to get it 80% done today.
First point is, block at least two 90-minute session. Three or 4-hour time block to do this. If you don’t then this is not going to happen to a degree that it’s going to be effective
Really give yourself time, turn off phone, remove email, shut off things that are going to distract you, lock yourself in the room so no one is going to come in and distract and break your pattern. Really get this time protected in the next 3 hours so you can really give it your best.
Remove the Barriers and Skepticisms
A lot of people are almost too cool or a lot of people are so skeptical about this kind of exercise because it makes them feel uncomfortable or it makes them feel like it’s all a cult or it’s all so BS.
I would love you to remove any barriers that you have. I’m not saying that you do have personally, but step into it and be prepared to become inconvenienced and a bit uncomfortable. If it does feel uncomfortable then that’s what we want. Remove the barriers and you are going to have the most creative and moving work that you’ve done in your business. You’re going to create something incredible, and let’s get inspired,. Let’s have fun with it and let’s spend a third of our lives on something that we love doing, and this is where it begins.
Playing Music that You Love
I’m going to have some music playing over the questions that I ask and I’m going to give 30 seconds per questions and you’re going to use the worksheets provided or just a pen and paper. Just draw a mind map of things that we’re going to go through and just brainstorm freely and have the music playing that you love and inspires you. I’m going to have some inspiring music playing over the questions. If you want you can just press pause and you can play your own music. Make sure it can get you into that beautiful state where you are really inspired and excited to do great things.
Preparing the Physiology
Instead of sitting there, slouched over or if you’re leaning over your computer change your physiology. I love standing up. I stand up most of my day. I do change it up so it’s not all standing. The point is have your shoulders back and a smile on your face. Let’s do this. Let’s not mess around with this, else it’s not going to be effective. Let’s prepare our physiology. Let’s get ourselves in a good place. It’s going to be some of the most foundational, creative stuff that you’ve ever done in your business. So I’m really excited about today.
Get a Pen & Paper then Step into gratitude
I already mentioned, grab yourself something to write on. If you’ve got an iPad – great. If you’ve got an Apple Pencil use that. If you’ve got analog, pen and paper it’s fine.
We’re going to uncover our purpose, our values and create a powerful vision. We are going to map out some of the greatest work you’ve ever done. The main thing is to get it all out of your head, for instance, write ‘Purpose’ in the middle of a piece of paper, circle around it and just mind map, brainstorm all the stuff out. That’s going to be a good way to unpack all the greatness in your heart and your head.
You are about to action some of the most creative and inspiring work you can do in your business.
Let’s make sure we are in a Peak State to create something outstanding.
Be sure to look out for Part 2 where we will go deep on uncovering your business purpose.
