|Do you remember the feeling of seeing someone you were attracted? It makes the heart bump, doesn't it?
Have you ever stood on stage in front of a sea of faces that you know well and pulled out your notes to make a speech? Boy does the vibration of shaking liven you up!
Have you ever felt the breeze on your face, either during a hot-air balloon ride or by sticking your head through the car sunroof? It wakes your senses up, doesn't it?
And on a scale of 1-10 how much does your heart bump, body shake and senses wake when you do your day job? I bet you can practically do the tasks with your eyes shut. In fact I bet there are days when you feel like you did have your eyes shut?
Most people don't feel awakened by their day jobs. Their role lacks excitement and the chores get done with a distinct lack of passion. In many places of work you often hear people making a, "If I have to work for a living I'd sooner do something I enjoy," kind of statement.
However finding or creating work that engages you to the extent that you lose track of time isn't easy, is it?
Many people find themselves in the place of having money and all the trappings, yet still feel unhappy and not knowing why.
Part of the issue here is that they/you probably don't attach any other meaning to work except the money taken home at the end of the month. And if you won the lottery this weekend, would we see you at work on Monday?
But I want to give you an example of a guy I know living his life purposefully and totally engaged in his work. He used to be obese. He used to pack in a minimum nine hours sleep each night, he often got ill and he was forever counting the clock down at work.
Now he has lost 84 pounds, works in timeless awareness - where time slips by unnoticed - sleeps on average 5-6 hrs per night and wakes up raring to go in the morning. In fact on a summer morning he's worked for an hour, jogged six miles, done an hours yoga and is sitting at the breakfast table by 8am. Also he's not seen a doctor in three years and had only one cold or virus!
The weight loss will give him years extra to live and the lack of pharmaceutical drugs in his body means his major organs are no longer breaking down and continuing the illness cycle. And the extra hours he now has because he is not sleeping… well these give him just over two moths extra living each year!
And the good news is he began as an 'ordinary' person and learned to make extra-ordinary changes when he discovered and began to understand his Life Purpose.
If you don't feel engaged in your work it is probably because you are not working close to your life purpose or because your natural talent and ability is being choked.
If you feel apathy in your work, lethargic or are suffer from weight issues it is well worth taking a look at your life purpose.
