Around this time of the year, people begin thinking about the new year and the changes, they hope, it will bring.
Some people make New Year's resolutions to lose weight, get a better job, get married, or simply to get a life.
How many times have you found yourself in this state of wishful thinking?
If success was simply made up of a momentary, heartfelt resolution, you would have achieved your goal years ago. But if you're like most people, the previous attempts you made to improve your life after the holidays quickly fell by the wayside.
Transforming your life - because, let's be honest, that's what we're talking about here - requires more than a fleeting, although perhaps emphatic declaration.
If you're really going to achieve success in the long-term, you need to be able to comprehend the bigger picture.
When you are unable to see this bigger picture, it's difficult to ascertain what direction you should pursue.
Without direction and purpose, there is no point in having the goals and resolutions, in the first instance.
In the end, even if you achieve such abstract goals, there remains a feeling of pointlessness... "what was the ultimate purpose behind it all anyway?"
Without both purpose and direction you are pretty much lost.
Without discovering what it is that you are here to learn and do, you are like a boat without a rudder, thus lacking any set direction, sailing aimlessly in a hostile sea totally dependant on outside circumstances, allowing each wind and wave to control your way.
Shakespeare said: "All the world's a stage, and all men and women are merely players".
This is exactly what life is all about.
We are actors, directors, producers and the story makers of our life.
Each of us has chosen a specific piece of theatre to play in.
The purpose of this specific "play" is to allow our soul to grow.
The choice was ultimately made in a way that allows us to learn specific subjects and to teach others what we've learned.
It is said that we are human beings searching for a spiritual experience.
But what if instead, we are actually spiritual being having a physical experience?
If that is so, then on a spiritual level we chose a specific script that will allow us to learn and grow.
We were born here in order to learn specific issues, which are our life-themes, and to give and teach other topics, which is our life purpose or mission.
Then we selected our culture, background, race, sex, parents and childhood experience to match our intended life-themes.
Your life-theme, naturally, requires personal and spiritual growth: coming to know yourself, learning to love, becoming aware of your connectedness with others, overcoming your blockages and limitations, expressing your potential and strengths, rising beyond your Ego, becoming whole, being creative, being joyful to name but a few.
Like every one of us, you also have a purpose, a mission, and a unique role to play in the world - your life's purpose.
Whatever your life purpose is, it will involve making some contribution to people, other living beings, or the planet.
Once you discover your life's mission, the doors to joy and abundance will open up to you.
Finding your life's purpose takes daring and courage as it usually involves departing from the safety of a guaranteed money income, comfortable relationships or other benefits.
If you are a regular sufferer of the "Monday's Blues", or you feel continually drained at your workplace and unsatisfied, you watch the clock all day, and you envy your friends that jump out of bed to start a new day, then you are clearly not doing your life's work.
It's better to invest the time to discover what your life purpose is and follow it. Otherwise, it stands to reason, you are wasting your precious talents and the time that was given to you whilst on this earth.
If you are willing to take a risk in order to follow your passion and enthusiasm, then everything will fall into place. You will find yourself in the right place at the right time. The means of making money will come quite readily - and it will all be so enjoyable that it seems effortless.
Whatever your life's work is, it will feel natural and right. It will feel like coming home. Your work - whether paid, unpaid or voluntary - will enable you to brilliantly express your inner self.
This new approaching year, I urge you to find your life's purpose, as a clear definite resolution.
It will make all other resolutions simpler and more fun.
Now... stop for a moment and look inside.
Be aware what you feel and what you think.
Allow yourself to notice any subtle movement within you, probably around your heart center, or maybe in your belly...
Now, answer the following three questions, trusting your intuition:
Question 1 - are you aware that you have a purpose being here-now, on this planet in this life?
Just feel the answer within you, "YES" or "NO".
If the answer is yes, even if you don't know what your purpose or mission is, then:
Question 2 - are you aware that your time has come to realize your mission?
Again, just go inside and "feel" the answer, "YES" or "NO".
If the answer is yes again, the last question is:
Question 3 - ARE YOU READY?
If your answer is yes, we would like to meet you - personally.
We have designed a program for those who are ready to take such a step forward.
The program's purpose is to take you further on your path - to help you identify your life purpose and to support you in realizing this purpose.
Inside you - you already know anything you need to know.
Our purpose is to help you unlock that knowledge, support you in reclaiming your power and teach you the practical life skills you need - in order to realize your dreams and purpose.
This program is open only to those who are ready.
And, unfortunately, it applies to those who live in the Netherlands and in surrounding countries.
If something in you answers "YES":
"I am ready to reclaim my power"
"I am ready to fulfill my potential"
"I am ready to realize my purpose here"
