My guess is your huge goals are tied to an important why. . . A purpose.
What is that purpose? Well if you're like us, it has something to do with making a significant and very positive contribution to the world (or your community or towards a social issue), am I right?
So if that's true, here's what you need to know. After working with entrepreneurs, business leaders, individuals, and couples for the last decade, what we've found is the real reason we want to make an impact is fulfillment.
In fact, all we do here and in Awakened Life Academy is really about moving towards greater fulfillment in life.
That's why we created The Four Pillars Of Fulfillment:
This is really a paradigm for how to create the highest level of fulfillment in your life. As we've already discussed, ultimate fulfillment comes from making that huge contribution and impact. But to have the ability to make a great impact, you have to have freedom. Freedom from all hindrances. That means you have a level of mastery in the areas of:
mental and emotional healing
And the foundation of this freedom is strong Relationships. Having a strong support system and community is important.
This is especially true for your intimate relationship. If you're in one that is not thriving, it can be very difficult to find freedom in all other areas. On the other hand, if you find passion, growth, and contribution in an intimate relationship, this can add rocket fuel to your freedom and ability to make an impact. So we make it a priority to build strength, passion, and bliss into this.
Finally, in order to bring your best to your relationships, you have to have the energy and aliveness to do so. So the foundation pillar of all four pillars is Vitality. We focus a lot of attention on ROE (return on energy) activities. For example, establishing an awesome morning routine and getting up early to start your day off. Even though you might lose an hour of sleep to have a productivity-enhancing morning, the energy you get back throughout your day (by increased effectiveness and focus) more than makes up for it by the end of the day. And then typically, you sleep better the next night.
So there you have it! The Four Pillars of Fulfillment. Start looking at your goals, tactics, and strategies through this lens and you will become more efficient and more fulfilled along the way!
