Nothing much can get in between someone who is championing a cause...ask me how I know...I go "all in" and passion takes over. Whether personal or global, having a purpose and setting goals to achieve it is a powerful thing. The drive it takes to power through and achieve the outcome builds unshakable confidence along the way.
Working goals for a purpose creates:
These are game-changing qualities that shift mindsets and abilities from average to extraordinary. People who have developed these sorts of skills are not wall flowers. Their grit and determination levels them up to a new playing field.
Sometimes the goals are set by you:
Sometimes you want change so badly, you set goals that require you to dig deep and do hard things to accomplish the quest. If you'd like to be in on this quest with me, sign up for the VIP Waitlist for my coaching program: A Pilgrimage to...
There is an Indian Proverb or axiom that say that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, mental, an emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.
A House with Four Rooms offers the monthly mentoring membership: A Pilgrimage to Self. The lessons follow the philosophy of the Indian Proverb and are meant to provide practices, strategies, and techniques to "air' out your four rooms: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
Content includes ways to focus on self-care practices, accomplish goals, and build an Intentional Life. Your personal success path follows the Winning Ways of the PATHS to Discover, Design, and Develop your Intentional Life.

A wealth mindset isn’t just about money. As a matter-of-fact, most wealth has nothing to do with money at all. Money is a by-product of a wealth mindset. The wealth mindset encompasses every aspect of life - health, relationships, and your overall attitude about people in general. The philosophy of the Indian Proverb, A House With Four Rooms, is to do something daily for your four metaphorical rooms: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual rooms for complete wellbeing.
The principles advocate for living from a place of abundance; this includes living with the knowledge that you are enough and you have enough...money, time, love, joy, etc....that you can be generous with your wealth.
Let’s look at some examples of wealth that aren’t money related:
A loving family- Having a family who loves you and chooses to spend time with you when there are a million other options is a true...
It’s hard to believe, but we’ve come to the end of our 30 Day Living With Purpose guided practice. Time flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? I hope you’ve enjoyed our little journey towards living a more intentional and purpose-driven life as much as I have. More importantly, I hope the daily blog posts have inspired some serious thought and discussion.
Here’s what we covered over the past 30 Days.
Here’s an interesting question for you. What do you want to be remembered for when you’re gone? Since our life on this beautiful earth is limited, it’s only natural that we want to leave some sort of legacy. What’s yours going to be? What do you want to be remembered for?
Living a purpose driven life makes this a lot easier. You know what you want to accomplish and what impact you want to have on your family, your loved ones, your friends, your community, and the world at large. If that sounds a little overwhelming right now, don’t let it intimidate you. You’ll get there. Living with purpose starts small for most of us and grows exponentially as we notice the effect we can have on those around us when we start to live intentionally and with an open heart.
Even small changes and accomplishments are nothing to laugh at or dismiss. Raising your children well is an amazing feat and a wonderful legacy to...
I’m sure throughout this challenge you’ve been thinking a lot about living with purpose and what that means to you right now. Hopefully you’re living more intentionally already and are changing things here and there to better align with your purpose. You may even discover your big passion and your calling and working towards making that happen. That’s great, but there’s something we haven’t talked about much. It’s that we all grow and change as time goes by. And with that our purposes change.
Let’s say you’re a mother of small children. Right now, living with purpose may mean to spend as much time as possible raising your kids. That may mean becoming a stay at home mom, working only part time, or working from home. That’s great, but don’t feel like that can’t change as time goes by. A few years from now, the kids will all be in...
In yesterdays’ post we talked about how we can use our communities to have long lasting, permanent change by living a purpose driven life. Those changes can be small or large, and they all add up. We can make a difference. Today I want to take a look at the impact living a purpose driven life can have on your loved ones.
You Set A Good Example
The most powerful thing about living your life with purpose is that you are setting a good example for those around you. Trust me, your kids are watching. Your spouse or significant other is noticing what you’re doing, too. So are your family and friends. Living a purpose driven life can be quite contagious. Start being aware and see how much of an effect you can have on those around you.
In other words, not only will they benefit from what you do directly (by being more attentive and patient for example, or making an effort to spend more quality time with people...
One of the most eye-opening experiences for me when I started to live with purpose was that life is about so much more than just me in my little bubble. Living a full and meaningful life means being part of a global community and serving it in a variety of ways. Let’s look at a few of them.
Your Inner Circle
The first community you encounter and the one you spend most of your time in is your very own inner circle. By living more purposefully and more intentional, you’ll have the most influence on this one. It’s your inner circle that’s compromised of your family and close friends. These are the people you spend the most time with, so you'll want to choose the folks that are supportive and encouraging. Your inner circle may also include your coworkers. This inner circle is the community you should focus on first. Start making a difference with the people you’re closest too.
We’ve been talking about living with purpose for quite some time. If you've been following our 30 day guided practice, you’ve thought quite a bit about what you may want to change or tweak in your own life to live more intentionally and with more purpose. Ideally, you will have started to incorporate some of those ideas and are starting to live more purposefully. The ideas I've been sharing and writing about come from A Pilgrimage to Self, my lifestyle coaching membership.
There are many benefits to joining a program like A Pilgrimage to Self. For starters, you join a supportive community of Pilgrims on a similar journey.

The journey starts with self-awareness as you discover your current mindset, core beliefs, and negative self-talk. Once you've identified your PATH, you will design the life of your dreams and develop a plan for real...
Living with purpose isn’t always easy. We get busy, we get stressed out, or we simply get distracted. It happens to all of us and when it does, we no longer hear that little voice in our head clearly that tells us what we should be doing. Without a clear purpose and solid intentions to live our life around it, it becomes easy to get off course. We have to find a way to make sure we can get back on track and realign ourselves with the purpose we’ve chosen.
A great way to do this is through prayer and meditation. There’s a reason these techniques have been used for millennia by spiritual leaders and everyday people who successfully live a purpose driven life. Both prayer and meditation allow you to tune out those distractions and give you clarity of mind. Once your mind quiets, you can start to listen to that inner voice that tells you what’s truly important and what you value most.
