Three Popular Myths About Your Purpose & Clarity – Debunked
Todays Vblog was inspired by members of my community who wrote asking for my help. Thank you, for opening your lives and extending your hand in trust. There will be more video blogs to come on various topics such as; messaging/monetizing your passion, the fear & confusion trap, winning the inner game, debt, how to find the time to start a business while in a job, how to start – period, and other fun stuff. The content will be based on emails I receive so if you have an area you’d like me to cover, just shoot me an email though the Contact pop-up in the lower right corner of your screen.
Okay! Let’s get going! If you struggle with the question of what your purpose is, and where to start – this video is for you. Thank you in advance for watching, and adding your genius to the conversation in the comments at the bottom of the page.
Here are a few notes and action steps to check out after you watch the video.
1. I can’t do anything until I figure it all out, first.
(This is when your best ideas and inspiration stay in your head and never make their way out into the world.)
New framework: The truth is – you figure it out as you go. That’s what entrepreneurs do. We jump then build our wings on the way down. It’s incredibly empowering and the very best way for you to learn. When you do this, you are leveraging the power of momentum. Through action and momentum your path becomes clearer, and decisions are made with a greater sense of ease. Taking action helps you gain more confidence too – a lot more.
This isn’t to say you go unprepared or sloppy. It simply means you know enough right now to take the first step. One step leads to the next, and the next. Before you know it, you are seeing your dream come into reality.
In my heart, I always knew I would end up where I am today but I had no idea how I would get here or what it would take exactly. Honestly, the ‘how’ matters less in the end than the dream itself. The answer to the ‘how’ is right here for you. What’s most important is to always have your sights on your bigger “why” (to the point of healthy obsession 😉 ) and to commit to investing in what you know to be true and right for you.
An important clarification about something I said in the video… I debunked a myth that you don’t need a website to have a business. I want to be clear (since it was a little confusing in the video). Eventually everyone does need a website, definitely.
I am addressing the fact that most people think it is the first thing they need to do when it really isn’t. That’s like putting up a billboard in the middle of the desert. No one will see it without a well thought out marketing strategy. Worse yet, they let the ‘I-need-to-get-my-website-up’ slow them down from getting clients now.
The first thing you need to do to create a successful online business is to secure your financial foundation through building an online community of people interested in the type of products and services you offer. I teach this step-by-step strategy in my Private Diamond Program and mention it not because I teach it but because it works in getting my clients up and running quickly. It begins with one web page (not an entire site), and builds out from there.
Action step: Trust myself more. Release old ways of thinking that have kept me stuck and
replace those thoughts with new, more empowering ones.
Show up (for myself) by taking action today toward my goal.

2. There is only one purpose for me, and gosh-darn-it – I need to find !IT
New framework: Your purpose basically finds you as you step into powerful action, and you probably don’t have just one. You very likely have more than one beautiful soul-based business in your future.
Action step: Explore these questions to get a feel for your general inclinations – your core passions:
If I won the lottery today, what would I do?
If I had only one sign to hold up to the world – one thing to declare to make my mark on this earth –
what would it (or I) say?
3. It will come to me someday and when it does, I’ll know what to do.
“The road to someday leads to the town of Nowhere.” – Anthony Robbins
New framework: If you are reading this right now, it has already come to you in some form or another but you won’t know for sure until you start doing something in the general direction of your dreams.
Action step: Try these questions to help you move through feeling stuck:
What is it costing me to stay stuck, confused and in fear?
(Outline the costs in detail then move into your power.)
What can I do today to transform my someday-thinking into today-thinking?
How can I choose clarity over confusion?
What can I take action on today?
