What does the world want from you?
Don’t we so often get so stuck, absorbed and over-interested in ourselves? What we want, what our purpose is, how we can make money, what our legacy is?
What about asking a different question? What if we were to ask, what is Life asking you to do here on this planet?
It’s like the difference between seeing the world through our own eyes, and then having a transformation where we view the world from the world’s view.
It’s an immensely important question to ask.
I was chatting with a good friend and I asked him this question. He runs a retail business and is really, really good at it. He didn’t hesitate for a moment, “To encourage others.” It was the way he said it. I just got it. I was moved to tears in a moment. Why? Because that is exactly my experience of him. He is one of the most selfless, caring, loving human beings I know. I know he got the power and clarity of his answer too.
What came to me the first instant I asked this question was, “to connect with people.” That has evolved to, “to influence, inspire and enable people to unite, connect and celebrate our shared humanity, rather than focusing on the differences that separate us.”
Take a moment to think about that question: what is Life asking you to do here on this planet?
I’d love to know what comes to you.
