What’s the point?

What's the Point-

 

I really mean…what’s my Purpose?

It’s an age old question.  An important question.  And it may be easier to answer than we think…

If you stopped searching outside of yourself, for just a moment, it just might bubble to the surface.

You see, your soul knows your purpose…that’s why it chose YOU!

Try this exercise:

Sit quietly.  Take a few deep breaths from deep in your belly. Drop out of your head and into your heart.  Now meditate on these questions:

What do people naturally come to me for? (Advice, a good laugh, a warm hug, an open ear and a quiet mouth, help with relationships, etc….)

What comes easily to me? (Problem solving, listening, teaching, researching, networking, connecting people, peacekeeping, a good joke or story, etc…)

Without editing;  journal / write down what comes to mind.

Please message me at johanna@johannamcclain.com and share what you found out about your Purpose.

 

Be still.  Be trusting.  Be yourself.

 

With Love and Gratitude,

Johanna

The Power of Many!

I was recently at a full day mastermind with over 40 other business owners and entrepreneurs. The theme…collaboration not competition. Many times we feel like we have to do everything on our own.  What I have learned about that business strategy is that it’s lonely. We’re not always our best advisor or mentor and it’sContinue Reading

Why can’t I blame you?

Oooooh I so want to! This would get me off the hook for taking personal responsibility for my life. What can I get from this strategy? Will I be courageous? Will I grow and stretch beyond my wildest dreams? Will I become the person I want to be? Will I respect myself and others? IContinue Reading

Marketing and Multi-Vitamins

When you decide you need to boost your energy and supplement your diet by beginning a multi-vitamin regimen…what’s the first step?  Research.  Do your homework to find the product(s) that will best suite your health goals.  Once you have made a decision, a purchase and you take your first daily dose…do you expect instant results?  Do you takeContinue Reading

Be Remarkable

I was talking with one of my dear friends this morning about what it takes to be Remarkable.  I think it takes a burning desire to make a difference in the world.   Be Courageous.  Be Spirited    Be Remarkable!

The Yoga of Non-Stealing in Business

In Sanskrit the word for Non-Stealing is Asteya. The obvious is not taking what does not belong to us and we often think of our possessions but I would like to broaden that as we think of how we conduct ourselves in our business relationships.  One of the areas that we need to be mindfulContinue Reading

Creating Abundance

I have been enjoying Deepak Chopra’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge. Today was day 9 and after completing the meditation and reflecting on how to bring Abundance into our lives I came to the simple conclusion that we must…   Give with no strings attached. Receive with Grace. Be Generous.                Be Gracious.                Experience Abundance.

Are You Excited?

I woke up this morning excited about what was possible for me today and it got me wondering…are you excited too? Do you realize that what you do and what you offer NO ONE ELSE DOES?  You are uniquely YOU and people come to rely on you for that.  Now that’s exciting! Show your enthusiasmContinue Reading

Business Principle: Profitability

What is the emotion that comes up for you when you think about Profitability? You might pull back the covers on this and look closely to see if your emotional response has a relationship to your businesses bottom line. Food for thought.

Yoga Off the Mat: Applying Ancient Principles to Modern Business

Wow! That’s a mouthful…but such a sweet mouthful, for me anyway. As many of you know I am a business coach AND a yoga teacher. I am passionate about both of these lines of work. However, the two have given me a sense of frustration and anxiety as well…for so many years they seemed soContinue Reading
