Skeptical? Let me explain.
I recently attended a TEDxTalks
featuring a collection of great minds,
one being Adam Leipzig.
He started out by referencing the Self-Help
section of most book stores.
There are 100-1000 books out there about learning your life purpose.
It’s not that hard.
Here are the steps.
WHO YOU ARE?
WHAT DO YOU DO?
NAME ONE THING that you are supremely qualified to teach people.
WHO YOU DO IT FOR?
WHAT DO THEY WANT OR NEED?
HOW DO THEY CHANGE OR TRANSFORM AS RESULT OF WHAT YOU GIVE THEM?
You see, outward facing successful people always focus on the people they serve.
Happy people make it a point to make other people happy.
When you meet people for the 1st time they usually ask “what do you do?”
Americans almost always ask this during an introduction.
Sometimes what you’re paid to do isn’t how you define yourself.
The Question: “what do you do?”
Answer: “I give kids awesome dreams”.
The follow up question will probably be “how do you do that?”
Well, “you write children’s books so they can fall asleep at night having good dreams.”
Suppose you teach writing. You might say
“I help people get their greatest work into the world.
That is your personal elevator speech.
