Why People Who Go “Looking” For Their Purpose Never Find It. (Also. Knitted Hats.)

blog 3.4

As a life coach, I so frequently hear the question “what am I supposed to do with my life?”

A close relative to that is “what is my PURPOSE?”

And so many times when we seek and search and LOOK for these answers, they’re nowhere to be found.

We take “find your passion!” courses, or we download worksheets. We read “Strength’s Finder” books. We ask our friends what they think. Some of us hire coaches like me.

But often times…after the money has been spent, and the worksheets have been filled out, the online quizzes have been taken, we’re still left with that empty feeling. That confusion. The question of “what the hell am I supposed to do with my life” still remains.

Why is that?

I have a theory on this (which I’ll get to in a sec), and my interview with Robyn Devine, of “She Makes Hats” speaks beautifully to this theory.

Robyn, in my mind, is the epitome of the “heart centered entrepreneur.”

Her mission of knitting 10,000 hats (she’s on hat # 653 right now) and giving them away FOR FREE goes against a lot of marketing and online messages that will tell you that you need to make your primary focus on making money in order to have a successful business.

She challenges the idea that you need PR people, marketing people, and a “team” in order to get the word out there about your mission and make a difference in the world (and get a book deal).

And she inspires us to know that small changes in someone’s day can make a huge difference in the world.

Take a listen to Robyn’s interview here. It is chock full of heart, advice, and inspiration. She takes us through really important questions like “how do you figure out what you’re supposed to do in the world,” and “how do you know when you’ve found your “thing.”

If you’re one of us who’s been wondering “what the hell am I supposed to do with my life” and you’re someone who knows deep inside you’re meant to make a difference in the world, you won’t want to miss this interview.

 Check out the interview here!

I hope you enjoy the recording. And I’d love to know…what was your favorite bit of learning? What was your biggest takeaway?

For me (and this is my theory on why people who go “looking” for their purpose will never find it)…it’s the idea that we don’t ever FIND our purpose by looking. (tweet this)

But rather our purpose lies within us, and as long as we continue to follow things that are in alignment with our values, what we’re supposed to do will find US. (tweet this)

As long as we continue to pursue those things that have always been there, that are natural, and exciting, that everything will fall into place.

That no matter how small you FEEL your mission is, that it is inevitably making a big difference in the world. And might even get you a book deal.

I would love to hear from you guys. What are your takeaways from this interview? How did you “find your purpose?” Or are you still looking? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

And one quick announcement…The Wildheart Revolution is about to announce something super juicy, fun and something I’ve never done before. Make sure you are on the list  to find out first hand when the news goes live!

she-makes-hats-cover-282x340She Makes Hats is one woman’s story of finding meaning, purpose, and passion by way of an old-fashioned yet rediscovered craft. With a push from a friend, Robyn Devine, a thirty-something wife and mother, moved past her apprehension and began expressing herself through texture, color, and design, turning knitting into her hobby, her meditation, and a functional product that helps people all around the world.

Now, in an effort to knit 10,000 hats for people all around the world, Robyn contributes to a number of programs, aiding sick children, traveling artists, and newborns in other countries. Knitting remains a steadfast companion and leaves her blessed with worldwide friends, support, and the encouragement to continue her mission: to bring comfort, warmth, and the “sweet spot” fit of a knit hat to everyone. Find her at her website or Instagram and contact her if you know someone who needs a free knitted hat (no…really).

Why “Success” Is Bullshit, with Dave Ursillo

Press play to watch the video. And don’t worry if it’s a little choppy. It’s not you, it’s me. :)

Also…due to the super fun nature of this interview, I decided to hold a LIVE call with Dave on Tuesday the 21st at 5 pm PST. He’s teaching: “From Blogger to Author: Debunking The Biggest Myths About Being A Writer.”

Put your name right here to come help us rock the house and find out the biggest secrets of being a writer!

In a world with so much technology, we all tend to have a lot of “friends” all over the globe. And the more we nurture those relationships, the easier it is to forget to have real live conversations with real live people that are right in front of us.

We forget to have conversations with purpose.

And that is exactly what today’s talk with Dave is all about.

In it, he answers some really tough and complex “life” questions, like:

1) What does it mean to truly be successful?
2) If life is about the journey and not the destination, what is the point of even thinking of an end goal?
3) If there are no real “answers” to life’s biggest questions and there is nowhere to “get,” then why do us business owners try so hard to get there?
4) What does it mean to “BE LOVE”?
5) What does it mean to Be A Wildheart.

There are so many juicy tidbits in this conversation that go way beyond the typical “podcast” or “interview.”

We’ll learn that “the journey ought to be treated like the reward” (tweet this), or that “true success is about honoring yourself and honoring others” (tweet this).

It’s some deep stuff. And it’s also fun. And I make him do a Boston accent for me. (It’s my favorite!!!)

So come on in and enjoy the chat.

And now I want to hear from you!

One thing that stood out for me in this interview was the idea that true success is honoring ourselves and honoring others and to me, part of honoring ourselves is BEING ourselves.

So in the comments below I’d love to hear what YOU think. What does success mean to you?

Can’t wait to hear you thoughts on this!

Turn Your Hobby Into A Life-Changing Business (with a mission), with Gal Matic

From Hobby To Life Changing Biz

When I first found this girl…I was in love.

Super adorable girl mechanic (I mean…need I go on??) with a mission to empower women through learning about cars. How cool is that?

Imagine Grease Lightning, but with girls, and you have Eleni and her team from GalMatic.

But what I didn’t realize when I first found Eleni, was that she has MAD business skills and a huge mission to make the world a better place, one female driver at a time.

I’m blown away by her, her mission, and her perfect red lipstick that she rocks while working on cars. How could you NOT love a girl like that.

Press play below to watch the super fun Eleni talk cars, business, love, and how to take your dream from a hobby, to a full fledged, world changing business.

In this video you’ll learn:

  • Eleni’s super creative ways to take your dream from hobby to successful business
  • What relationships and cars have in common (super surprising and fun perspective!)
  • How to get people to take you seriously when you’re first starting out (and it’s not what you think!)
  • Why she thinks the “If you believe in it, it will happen” idea is crap
  • And her BRILLIANT method for finding the secret formula to creating a successful business (I totally started implementing this immediately after this interview and it’s AHHHMAZING)
  • The top three things you can do for your car that will have it (and you) purring for years to come
  • The true essence of what it means to be a Wildheart

Words of wisdom from this interview!

“Don’t try to be a size you’re not. Be the size you are and don’t apologize for it.” – Gal Matic via @sallyhopesays http://bit.ly/1HCEXAH  (TWEET THIS!)

I want to hear from YOU!

A key thing that stands out for me in this video is how connected Eleni is to her bigger vision of WHY she does GalMatic. And it reminds me that the passion and the “why” is what keeps us going and keeps us resilient in our businesses and with our dreams.

So in the comments below, I’d love to hear YOUR why.

What motivates you and keeps you going when you feel like giving up?
