Rethink how things could be.
Why do you do the things you do? What are you doing it all for?
What is your why?
In exploring my why I always come back to a few main things:
Connection + Relationships
Experience + Exploration +Growth
Enthusiasm + Happiness
The method of ask yourself "But Why" at least 3x and see where your answers leads you is a powerful tool.
For me all of these stem from and lead back to LOVE.
I do it all for my family.
So we can spend everyday together.
Because it feels good to belong and be of purpose.
Because we give + recieve Love.
I watched a talk a while back that really challenged me to see things a bit differently. I've always thought of myself being open-minded, but sometimes you encounter a concept that makes the opening even bigger.
Ricardo Semler talks about challenging the things we take as a given. He talks specifically about his company and innovative schools, but the concepts can be applied to helping us to THRIVE in all areas of life.
He also touches on the freedom that comes from letting go of the image we hold of ourselves so we can keep living in new more unexpected ways - he calls it his unbucket list. He also uses the 3 why's method.
I was so inspired I searched for his book Maverick! and lo and behold it was at the Cairns Library. Again, it is a book about business, bit filled with so many life lessons. If you get your hand on a copy give it a read.
May we all THRIVE in this life!
