Are you wanting to find your passion? Over the years I’ve worked with many people in helping them to answer this.
Last year, I watched a video by Bill Gates (recorded in 2015) where he said a highly infectious virus would create mayhem in the world. He went on to explain that we invest in missiles, yet as a world we don’t invest in viruses.
In 1918 the Spanish Flu model he used, showed how it spread rapidly across the world, and he talked about the tools and IT we have to prepare. The reality is, no one took notice. So now we see the world rapidly and drastically changing.
I also saw the rapid rise of fast pace, and the vibe we were running on, and I also predicted something would come and slow us back down.
And wow! Just as was predicted, it is happening now. I never thought it would be a pandemic, of course, just saying it needed something to slow it down.
The changes that we see happening in just a few weeks feel drastic. Adding to that technology is leaping forward, the environment is giving us continued extreme conditions every year. Our leaders, who are cool, calm, collected are not so much at the moment.
This chaotic vibe has been swirling around us for a long time, yet for those who were in it, could see it. Life as we knew it, was secure, or was it?
So now in March 2020, the world has suddenly been thrown off course in the most abrupt way. I would never have dreamt the world would suddenly shut down borders, or lockdown cities. I would never have imagined the world essentially screeching to a halt. I have spoken to people across the globe, and they all say the same thing – shut down, remote schooling, working, and isolation.
Change is happening.
What I am seeing is a rise in communication software, online training, self monitoring and a huge change (for some) in working with teams. There is a risk at adopting a new status quo that’s even worse than the one it replaces.
There is no need to panic, it is change, and the reality is, we’ve all faced change on a personal scale at some point in our lives. We’ve all experienced loss, uncertainty, tough times and worries about the future. It’s just that this time, we’re all in the same boat. Which is a good thing right?
This is a time to reflect
We can make it better.
You have a chance to reinvent the default, to make it better. Or we can maintain the status quo. Which way will you contribute?
Time to look at where you are now, and where you want to go in your life. So I have written a FREE resource Called “Find Your Passion”. It give you some exercises to do that stretch your thinking, and at the end give you clarity on what really lights you up, and gets you excited. And this is where your life purpose lies.
It felt right to write when I did, and even more so now.
To know who you are and what your purpose is, only becomes more important in the face of uncertainty. Your purpose is your north star. No matter how things change in life, it’s the one thing that remains the same. this is what keeps you going, and drives your thinking.
And to have that certainty and clarity about who you are and what you’re here to do gives you confidence within yourself that you’ll always be heading in the right direction. The path you take may change, but it will always be toward that North Star.

My purpose in life is to help others find theirs, and I’m grateful to be able to offer that to you in this way.
The best advice I can give you in the near future is think BIG and think LITTLE. Start with thinking LITTLE. This means focusing on all the little joys in life; animals you love, chats with friends and loved ones, your favourite movie, watching the clouds, the flowers, or simply getting creative.
Thinking BIG; is about your purpose and your role in life and business. Consider the joy that we get to experience, right now.
Stay safe, and remember that we’re all in this together, and that things will be ok.
Sending you love,
