Discover Your Life Purpose: Life Experiences

We all go through experiences in life that shape us into the people we are today. Today, we’ll discuss these life-changing experiences and hopefully notice patterns that will help you get closer to your life purpose.

What are the turning points in your life?

My life has had many turning points; many events that took my life in a completely different direction. Moving to Costa Rica at the age of 22 was a very big turning point. My brother had moved to Costa Rica years before, and had gotten engaged to a woman from Honduras. One day, he called us to tell us he was going to get married, so my family and I flew down to Central America for the festivities. While there, I realized that I needed a change of scenery and a new beginning. Things in Canada were not going that great for me so I asked my family to help me make a decision. I took a coin and asked each one of them to flip it. If it landed heads, I would move to Costa Rica. If it landed tails, I would fly back to Canada. The coin landed heads 8 times and tails 3 times.

Although I was not entirely convinced of the decision I had made, I decided to go anyways. These 3 years in Costa Rica changed everything for me. It is there I met my wife, and it was there I discovered crucial things about myself, such as my values and philosophy of life.

Unravel Joy: Ego & Identity

Unravel Joy: Ego & Identity

Everyone has adopted identities that they’ve learned from the people around them. For example, for one person, a parent is someone that is controlling and authoritarian. For another, a parent is a friend and a counselor. You see these identities played out and accept them as truth

What roles did you see growing up, from your caretakers and those around you, and in what ways do you play them out in your life?

There’s the role of authoritarian. Some people believe that they need to be strict and demanding of others. They see it from their parents and display the same behavior with their own children. There’s also the role of the pretender. They see their parents act a certain way in front of them and then put on a mask in front of others. Once you understand that you’ve adopted certain roles that may be harming you, you can then decide if you want to change and discard some of them.

Many people deal with a lot of pain and suffering and adopt these experiences as a part of who they are. They start to believe that they are Pain. They get used to these negative feelings and thoughts, so they have a hard time letting them go. Have you ever said, I am unhappy? You may be experiencing unhappiness at this moment, but unhappiness is not who you are.

You are not your job.
You are not your illness.
You are not your poor financial situation.

Once this becomes evident to you, you can then begin to adopt a new identity founded on gratitude, prosperity and joy.

Begin each morning by saying:

I am a grateful person
I forgive those who have done harm to me
I seek joy and happiness
I love and am loved

Are you ready to unleash the joy within you? Learn how to let go of limiting beliefs, feel excited and motivated to succeed, re-wire your brain to create more happiness now, and take back control of your feelings and emotions. I want you to experience joy in your daily life. I want to see you reach your highest potential. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.

Unravel Joy: Limiting Beliefs

Unravel Joy: Limiting Beliefs

Have you ever sat down and thought about your beliefs? How do they affect the way you live? Have they helped you rise above or kept you on the ground? From a young age, I was taught that life is hard. My parents struggled a […]

Unravel Joy: Desires

Unravel Joy: Desires

Companies are constantly trying to manipulate your desires. Starting in 2009, Coca Cola ran an ad campaign with the slogan “open happiness.” You are told that if you purchase a particular product, you will be happy. If you stop and think about it rationally, you know it isn’t true. Nevertheless, it is easy to fall for the marketing tricks every time.

Chances are slim that companies will stop attempting to influence your desires anytime soon, so what you can do is learn to block it out. You can do this by asking yourself three questions:

What are the circumstances and/or things that you believe will make you happy?
Are any of the above influenced primarily by your society, friends or upbringing?
Are your authentic desires different than the above?

You might be surprised to realize that what you actually want is not what you’ve been told to want.

Once you’ve answered the other questions ask yourself this: will my desires actually make me happy? Many people think that if they win the lottery, they will be as happy as a child on Christmas morning. The statistics show another reality though. Lottery winners have higher rates of depression and most of them lose all of their winnings within the span of two years. What happens is that once they have what they thought would make them happy, and it doesn’t, they start to think that something is wrong with them.

Jim Carrey once said, “I wish everyone would get rich and famous so they’d realize it’s not the answer.”

I urge you to think about your desires and if they are what you truly want.

Are you ready to unleash the joy within you? Learn how to let go of limiting beliefs, feel excited and motivated to succeed, re-wire your brain to create more happiness now, and take back control of your feelings and emotions. I want you to experience joy in your daily life. I want to see you reach your highest potential. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.

Unravel Joy: Defining Happiness

Unravel Joy: Defining Happiness

Why do you want to be happy? Is it because you think it will help you have better relationships, improve your job prospects, or enjoy the little things more? You need to have a big enough reason or else you won’t be motivated to go after it.

How would you know when you’re happy? Does it mean you will go out more, have more energy in the morning, complain less?

It is important that you understand what you mean by happiness. To you, spending time with your family may bring about huge amounts of joy, and for someone else, the thought of spending an afternoon with their family only conjures negative thoughts.

It is not my job to define happiness for you, the only thing I can tell you is that happiness needs to come from within.

Are you ready to unleash the joy within you? Learn how to let go of limiting beliefs, feel excited and motivated to succeed, re-wire your brain to create more happiness now, and take back control of your feelings and emotions. I want you to experience joy in your daily life. I want to see you reach your highest potential. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.
