Become A Leading Light

Many of us like to believe in the existence of eureka moments in which we’ll suddenly come to understand why we were born and what we need to be doing so as to become a leading light within our own life and work.

The storytellers in my new book Showing Your True Colours will tell you it rarely ever goes down that way. They will tell you that while there may have been no one overriding eureka moment, there was a whole sequence of insights instead.

Moreover, it was these insights that inspired them to figure out why they were born and the life they now wanted to live if it were to be one of real success for them. For many of them, it was a case of:

  • First insight: they were at a place in their life but it was not where they wanted to be.
  • Second insight: they had to admit this to themselves if they were to have any chance of their life getting better.
  • Third insight: they knew they would have to take ownership of the life they were living and figure out why they were born if they wanted things to change.
  • Fourth insight: they needed now to accept that they would have to go and live the life they were born to live if they were to be true to themselves and have a life worth living.

The storytellers accepted that they had gotten themselves into a situation of living a life that had mostly lost its sense of meaning and purpose for them – the two key ingredients to a joyful and productive life. They also now knew that if they wanted a different and better life than the one, they were currently living, then they had to do something about it if they wanted anything to change. That it was their responsibility to go and make the change happen, even if they had no idea how they were going to do this.

The inner journey

The first step to changing the storytellers’ lives involved acknowledging that they were not where they wanted to be in life. They then accepted that it was up to them and them alone to do something about it. But what is it that makes people begin to question the life they are living? Often, it might be a milestone event, such as being made redundant. Or it could involve doing a course or committing to work on personal growth and development. It could even mean deciding to actively pursue a dream.
Do hope you get to have a great Christmas and look forward to being back again with you again in January.

Will this be your No. 1 regret in your life?

Book Cover - Showing Your True ColoursThe palliative carer and author Bronnie Ware, as well as other studies, have found the number one regret of the dying was –
“That I wished I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me”.
So then will this be your No. 1 regret in your life? Truly do hope not.

In my new book “Showing Your True Colours” you will get to read the stories of people who figured out why they were born and the work they were put here to do; they are about people who are now living extraordinary lives in the most ordinary of ways. The book and their stories are about showing you how you can be just like them. You too can live your best life, having figured out why you were born and the work you are meant to be doing, which will soon have you showing your true colours as you become the captain of your own ship.
At some point, most of us want to know what life is all about and why are we here. Or more importantly, why we were born and what are we here to do. Mark Twain is often misquoted as saying: ‘The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.’ Whereas he would surely have said: ‘The three most important days in your life are the day you were born, the day you find out why and the day you then go live it!’

People have asked me countless times, ‘For what reason was I born and what do I need to be working at?’ Every time, my answer is the same: ‘I don’t know, for how could I? If you do not know why you were born and the work you need to be doing, what would make you think that I know?’ This is the case for you too: I cannot give you a reason as to why you were born and what work you need to be doing, but I can help you find your own answers.

So how do you figure out why you were born and what work you need to be doing? This is a very different question, which this book will help you to address. In fact, it will go much further, as it will also invite you to consider what might be stopping you from living the life you were born to live and doing the work you should be doing. And it will suggest how you can successfully overcome these obstacles.

How can I promise you all of this? Well, for the simple reason that I lived, trained and studied to be a monk for nearly a decade, along with my knowledge gained from over thirty-plus years of working with people to enable them to answer these sorts of questions, and what I discovered about the meaning of true success by driving halfway around the world, from London to Sydney along the Silk Road. All of these experiences have enabled me to write my new book Showing Your True Colours and share the stories of other people just like you, who have found their own answers – as you will too, having finished it. Yes, that really can be the case. Having discovered why you were born and what you were put here to do, you give yourself the best chance of living the life you want.
