Do you get tired of hearing the same advice: find your passion and purpose?
So do I. But there is something in it.
Forget the 'find your passion' part. That is cliche. What will make the difference for you is find your purpose. (Or find a purpose.)
Purpose can be the difference between getting eight hours of sleep and waking up feeling like you want to throw the blankets back over your head, and getting four hours of sleep and jumping out of bed like a Jackrabbit.
Knowing you have something to get up for and the good feeling that comes with it offers a level of energy inaccessible without it.
Purpose isn't easy to find. If it were, we would all be springing out of bed. It's usually hiding in places we don't look – a reason I spent decades wanting to throw the blankets back over my head no matter how much sleep I got, and why you might feel the same.
But purpose comes in many different shapes and forms. When rocks are unturned, everyone can get a little more of it. And that little bit more can make all the difference.
P.S. My live workshop Finding a Little More Purpose: The Secret to Wanting to Get Out of Bed in the Morning is tomorrow.
