Student of Life or Student instead of Life? Ignite Your Purpose #IYP
Here at Ignite Your Purpose we know a lot of the Student of Life individuals, but we also know a lot of the Full time Student. Is there a difference? We feel that there is. Our thinking is knowledge is a MUST, 100% no if and’s or butts!!
To learn is a right, a privilege and a must and to continue to learn is also a must. However, we know a good amount of individuals whom continue to gather knowledge for no other reason other than to postpone really living life… they stay in school’s for years, take course’s, and read book’s (which are all good idea’s and things by the way) but and this is the big difference for us. What the PHuck are you doing with that knowledge and a what point do you pull the trigger and start actually start living and not just reading?
An example would be you can read a book about China but that does not mean you are Chinese ~
I’m not sure how else to say it, but I know so many people who (and this is just my personal thoughts, coming from a place of experience, and self awareness, meaning I been there baby)! But if we truly look deep down into our own personal shit storm, we would most likely find FEAR at the heart of the issue.
For myself anyway, it’s something that took me many many many years to admit, and to be honest it still plagues me on a few item’s. I feel and think again just from my personal experience that the reason for this is that by NOT DOING the thing, or not pulling the trigger I (we) never really have to experience the failure, the loss, the hurt, the humiliation, or face the opinions of other’s. Can you feel me? Have you gone through this?
My example would be marketing which is my weakness, however I have done enough research and studying that I know enough to get started (meaning I can get into the school of hard knocks) but in my mind I continue to come up with excuses as to why I should just hold off a few more days, which then turn into weeks, months…you know the story.
Things like, wasting my money come up, do I actually have enough editing skills to create the ads, and I can go on.
But if I am being honest with myself at the base of all of this is; “what if I put this out and it does shitty, no one likes my stuff?”
For those type of thoughts you need a strong, strong mindset and of that one that know’s, and understands whole heartedly that there are no failure just lesson that move us forward on our path. For that we need trust in what is, that this is all for our higher good, our purpose!
We talk longevity through a healthy lifestyle, a mix of mental physical and spiritual knowledge. The mind Body soul trifecta ~Negative to Positive Everyday~
