Have you ever thought of just asking the person next to you in the park - how is your life?
We say how are you, it rolls off the tongue quite easily? So now why not, how is your life?
Do you want to know who is asking this question, all the time? Maybe not of the person sitting next to them.
But they’re asking this question of themselves every single day. It’s kids, of literally all ages - who am I and what is my life for? Actually, there’s probably more than a few adults asking the same.
I remember asking these questions when little. Wondering what the future would bring, I was so eager not to be kid and to be a grown up.
You soon realise when you’re grown up, how much you wish you were a kid again.
Thinking from ways of being. When you’re a kid you’re living for the present moment.
Well I’m going to demonstrate that when you find humans in the world who are living for the present moment despite their age, there is some wisdom to gain from them.
I’m going to make it my mission to show you that living a created life, no matter what age you are, is possible for you.
I’ve always been curious about people and their stories which is why I thought I wanted to become a journalist. I did work experience, studied at University, got my degree and learnt the first biggest lesson of my life.
No one but no one really sets you up for the reality of transitioning. There is a phase in life called transitioning. Where you transition from one thing to another. In my case, it was from studying to a full time job.
In my case also, it felt very much like I was doing it on my own. At the time, I had no realisation I could find myself a mentor, someone other than my parents to help me navigate the transition.
Flash forward to today, I realised in a classroom full of Year 10 students, my calling and the impact I want to make on the world.
Take it to them. Take the message to them. Failing and failure is part of the journey. If you use the failing and a failure to create a lesson learnt.
You see, I applied for hundreds and hundreds of jobs. But little did I know, at the time, employers are looking for experience.
What happens though is you forget that actually you have a lot of transferable skills if you just think about it.
Year 10 is the best year to begin searching for answers, if you haven’t already. You don’t have to know what you want to be when you grow up. And I’ll give you another hint, you can be more than one thing!
Yes that’s right. It was so wrong for anyone to peg you in. You really do have the world at your fingertips but that worldwide web can sometimes disable common sense thinking.
You have to know what you’re looking for, before you begin searching. If you search for the wrong term, your search results aren’t going to give you the answers to the questions you’re asking.
So instead I’m going to share the universal bucket list project with you in the hopes this will bridge the conversation between someone who has lived a created life, and someone who is about to realise and unleash their power around creating their life.
I’m going to start with my parents because it makes sense to practice on them. And throw me your questions - none are silly. What are the questions you want answered?
I’m going to tell you that you are capable, capable of more than you know, capable of anything.
I’m also going to tell you, no matter what age you are to begin using the following framework:
How am I creative?
How am I active?
How am I of service?
When you are intentional about this, you’ll begin to develop all those transferable skills I spoke about.
Also, I want you to know that it’s not just a job you can look for, it might be being an entrepreneur or running your own business or businesses.
The reason is because depending on who you are, you have value to offer the world, and when you realise what the full extent of the value you have to offer the world looks like, it might not fit in to just a job or just any job.
You might need to create a role for you, and you do that by creating a business from scratch or using other business platforms to help launch your business from scratch.
Let’s not get too far ahead in one blog though.
Firstly just get real with where you’re at and what help you need. Subscribe, reach out to me and let me know, where are you stuck right now, school, transitioning from school?, a job, transitioning from a job?
Why are you feeling stuck?
Watch this space, I’m going to bring the messages to you that you need to hear. There are many people in your life, especially when you begin to use the framework I’ve shared with you today.
