What is the right thing for me to do?

We often wish only for the things we believe we can get. We do this to avoid disappointment and discouragement. These are painful feelings and our biology strives to avoid pain, always.

Our identity will always create resistance to a change and creation and transformation. Perfection will try and derail our projects.

To do work we love we have to focus on play, possibility and purpose. We need to listen to, trust and follow our desire, our spark.

And we have to drop ourselves into a real environment that is demanding us to stay positive, creative and present.

How to bypass the fear that strives to protect us from our crazy ideas and risky behaviour that following our dreams could get us into?

A really good shortcut to doing this is go on the lookout for heroes, rolemodels and mentors. (There are others too)

In finding your purpose there are two questions that may be helpful to meditate on:

  • Who in the world out there have done something that impress you, that you wish YOU had done? What is it in their work or personality that you are attracted to?
  • Who are the people that you wish you could impress or add value to?

About Live Your Legend

Live Your Legend springs from the optimism of creating your own success doing something out of passion and defining your own measure of what success is to you. Inherent in this philosophy is the thought that if you believe in doing something that matters, help enough people and make a positive difference, and have an impact, the money will come to you.

We believe the world would be an altogether different place if we all did work that actually mattered to us. This way of life is more possible than you think, especially when you surround yourself with people who are already doing it. We want to welcome you to that new world – into a community where people are finding and doing work that they love. Join us in building that culture and that community, share your wildest dreams, get fired up and committed to make it happen and dent the world.

"We Don’t Do Things For The Money - We Believe In Everything We Do"
