If you have a chance to read the e-guide available for download here: Solving the Autistic Family Puzzle then you will see a section which I title the Two Purposes. To clarify a bit more, you’ll have to read it. The e-guide is free of charge and is my first officially released published guide.
The essence of this guide is to give you tips and pointers to start becoming a more productive scheduler. As a parent with a child of autism myself, I realized that there had to be more to it than this. There had to be a way to climb myself out of the whole mess of life.
Over that time period, I came across many ideas, and the majority of these mentors all carried the same vision: PERSONAL PRODUCTIVITY…HIGH PERFORMANCE…ACHIEVING GREATNESS.
Now as a coach, I don’t push for my clients to become high performers. If that is their goal, however, I do still help, but my focus with them is purposeful productivity. The goal is not the same as Productive Purpose, as some have defined that as wealth building, financial terming, etc.
The goal behind the two purposes is simple, really. We need to manage our purpose of caring for our children, as well as our primary purpose we came to the Earth for. This is our first purpose. One is not more important than the other. The first purpose defines your destiny. It defines who you are as a person. Why are you here? What were you created to accomplish? What do you desire out of life?
The second purpose is the care for, and well being of your children. I really don’t need to explain the goal of this. In the guide I published, I go into detail as to how they connect. The primary objective should be to have scheduled time for the main areas of life.
In an email I send out to clients, there is a family balance worksheet that shows them how balanced they are in life. For me, there is three main areas of my life, and two sub areas: BUSINESS, RELATIONSHIPS, AND SPIRITUALITY. The sub areas are health and wealth. They tie into all three categories.
It’s important to build a future for our children, and so, being in the best health and having the best finances works out tremendously. In order to get the best health, though, I firmly believe in the words of my mentor, Charles F. Haanel “Would you bring into your life more power? Get the power consciousness. More health? Get the health consciousness. More happiness? Get the happiness consciousness. Live the spirit of these things until they become yours by right. It will then become impossible to keep them from you. ”
If you want a better life, it all begins with a better mindset. Once you understand the connection between the two purposes, you already have a start towards the achievement of your goals.
