Every Action With A Purpose

This life is in constant motion. There appears to be no beginning or end to this ever-evolving existence. There are scientific theories and spiritual philosophies that attempt to paint a picture of how this life all began and how it may end, but the fact here is that we all have no clue. Humans crave knowledge so the unknown is scary. It is so frightening that we make up things in our minds or create scientific models to comfort the fear of not knowing. This is a beautiful trait of the human but also a downfall. Why is it a downfall?

Answer: It takes us away from the NOW!

A phrase I started saying to myself as a young 21-year-old nurse working in a hospital was, “Every action with a purpose”. This phrase would bring me into the now. I often had trouble with focus growing up, unless I was doing art or physically active, so being in a very analytical and high-stress environment was hard. Working with people during moments of illness or emergency required tiger-like focus, so I had to retrain my brain to function in this unknown role as a nurse. Retraining one’s brain is a challenge, but it is not impossible. It starts with changing your inner dialogue and your belief systems about yourself. Also, if you find a good mantra/phrase that can link you to the present, use it often.

First, find out what beliefs or inner dialogues you have that are sabotaging your success in being in the NOW and doing what it is you “should” be doing.

Examples of sabotaging inner beliefs and dialogues:

“I am not good enough”

“I am not smart enough”

“I’m not pretty enough”

“I am not a math person”

“I can’t be productive and have time for myself”

You get the picture. The list can go on and on and it is different for everyone, but for some reason, we have doubts when it comes to expressing our true greatness and we often hold ourselves back with our negative inner talk. Get in the NOW and be AWESOME!

The number one thing you can do to start shifting your life into the gear you want it to be in is to enhance your awareness of what you believe about yourself and what you say to yourself. Catch yourself when you say things like “I’m so stupid” or “I will never change” and then apologize to yourself for saying such things. “Do unto others as you want to be done unto you and do unto you as you want to be done unto others”. It is an infinite cycle that can only be made positive by you. No one can make you think negatively. You may have childhood experiences or past traumas that can make it difficult at times, but you are the only one who chooses to think the way you think and say the things you say and believe the things you believe. YOU are the only YOU that can be in your NOW.

Now, I challenge you to use my phrase, “Every action with a purpose” as often as you can throughout the day for one week and see what it does for you. If it works at bringing you into the now, great! If not, what does get you into the present? If you have time I’d like to hear about your experience.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the revisit to the NOW in this week’s post :) I’d like you to notice your inner talk and your beliefs about yourself and take note of those that serve you and those that sabotage. Also, try my phrase, “Every action with a purpose” as often as you can remember throughout your day for one week. Let me know in the comments below what that experience is like for you. On that note, be present, be positive, and be AWESOME!

Do every action with a purpose!

Till next time!

How timely your comments are. What you are talking about, I have been exploring recently via YouTube and reading the books relating to these ideas. As usual, the points you mention, most of us already know, but need to revisit and, more importantly, act on them. One way to add to our knowledge base, especially if one tends to be more scientific, is to research/read the works by Bruce Lipton (Biology of Belief) and Tara Swart (The Source). These two are scientists doing mainstream science but applying their scientific rigor to a more spiritual connection and showing how it relates to our body's chemistry and the changes our thoughts produce. Along with this and your weekly comments can …
