What’s in it for me?
That is a question we always ask when we are contemplating a new project or a new venture. Anything that will cost us our time and money, we measure against the value we are receiving for it.
For most people, value is defined as monetary gain. But how much is enough? Is that what life is truly all about? The amount of money you make?
The job you are in, the career that you are building, the business that you are growing – is it what you really want to do?
Is it your life’s purpose? Do you know what your purpose is? Or are you like the proverbial hamster constantly running on a wheel but going nowhere?
For many of us, we get caught up in the common milestones on life’s journey – graduation, job, career, marriage, kids, mortgages, education fund, investments, retirement etc. You wake up and there are certain things you got to do to keep this whole wheel in motion because you have people depending on you.
Slowly, whatever that you haven’t yet discovered within you gets buried deeper and deeper. As long as you got a job, an income, who cares about life’s purpose! You are part of the machinery, the automation that makes society work. That is your purpose, you tell yourself – to be just like everybody else.
And then one day comes where people you know are gasping and talking about you because you just snapped and couldn’t take the pressure or the routine anymore.
“I didn’t know he was so depressed, he seemed to have had the perfect life.”
“OMG! Did you know that he just abandoned his family and no one knows where he has gone?”
“He did what??? Quit his job???”
Or maybe it is YOU that’s contemplating where your life has gone, how many years you have left and you wonder what all the sacrifices have been for?
Maybe, the question we need to be asking is “What am I in for?”
What are your core values in life? What makes you happy? What do you want to do? What are your dreams? If you could have it now, will you take it?
Simple questions but trust me; the thought process to elicit our true feelings about this comes from our unconscious mind.
During the NLP & Time Line Therapy certification program, you will go through this process to help you define who you are and your life’s purpose.
For many people this process alone has had tremendous impact on their lives. When you are forced to face your true self, you understand that certain decisions have to be made before you can really move forward in your life.
We have had people after the program (one even during the program!) decide to divorce, end relationships that were going nowhere except as to serve as a comfortable escape zone, quit jobs, start better relationships, get married, embark on a new career, start a business, retire, move to another country etc. simply because they finally knew how to unshackle themselves and had the courage to move forward instead of living life in limbo.
What may start out as an academic learning process for 9 days can set off life-altering decisions for you that would literally seem like the start of a brand new life – this time with your eyes wide open and your emotions clear.
We will never know when our time is up on earth. Don’t you owe it to yourself to find clarity and purpose in your life?
That should be what’s in it for you.
