I received this question from a listener on my Blueprints for Life teleseminar.
“I want to find true meaning in what I’m doing, not just doing it because it’s easy for me to do to make money. And I don’t want to compromise, but rather enhance my lifestyle along the way.”
Is that what you want too?
It’s possible there is a small percentage of my subscribers who are all about the money. But the majority of you are looking for the same meaningful, lifestyle enhancing work this person is. That’s why you’re one of my subscribers.
Don’t worry, you can still make the big bucks, and have your life be everything you want it to be. Personally, the number one priority of my business is to fulfill my soul. That’s right, it’s about me and not about you.
How to Find True Meaning in What You Do
Let me explain. What really fulfills me is seeing you reach your goals, watching you live your true passion and purpose, knowing that I was able to assist you int hat discovery. So, yes, my business is feeding my soul and by doing that I serve you, my client.
Have you always been told that to be successful you have to be focused on what your clients want, not what you want?
That’s true once you already know what it is that makes you happy.
Before you can be concerned about how you will fulfill the desires of your clients, you get to pick who they will be and how you will best serve them by deciding what makes you happy!
And that’s the place most people get stuck. You can’t answer what makes you happy, at least not in clear, laser focused terms. And that’s where the problem starts. How can you pick your ideal target market if you can’t decide who you enjoy working with the most? That’s your perfect client!
You Must Be Clear on What You Want
When I was in high school I told my guidance counselor I wanted to be a Realtor. He almost laughed me out of the office. Where I grew up people didn’t think it was necessary for girls to go to college. So if I couldn’t be a Realtor, because an authority figure told me I couldn’t, I had no idea what I wanted to do.
Over time I had several jobs. Some could have been a career and some clearly not. But it didn’t matter, because the whole time I was just waiting to be old enough to be a Realtor, although nobody clued me in to what age I would qualify.
So while some people spin around in circles doing meaningless but well-paying works for years, or even a lifetime, it was 4 years for me. I became a Realtor at 22, still very young.
Thank God I knew what I wanted to do. The reason I did was that I paid attention to what was going on in my life and what worked and what didn’t. I learned to ask myself some very important questions that gave me the answers I needed.
Those same questions will open the door to the answers you’re looking for.
I’ve learned another thing over the years I’ve helped people create a success blueprint for their lives. is most people have never even considered they can consciously choose what they do for a living, where they live, how they spend their time and with whom.
Most people have never even considered they can consciously choose what they do for a living, where they live, how they spend their time and with whom.
Over my 25 year career in sales, as a sales manager and sales trainer, I believed it was important for my salespeople to make those lifestyle choices if they were going to be truly happy and successful.
Even for career salespeople money loses its power to motivate if you don’t know what you want the money to do for you. There has to be a bigger goal. You have to have a clear vision for your life to sustain success long term.
You have a choice in every area of your life.
The biggest choice you make every day is whether you will take action to make a different choice than the one you’ve been making on a daily basis.
Questions are the answer to everything in life, it’s all about asking yourself the right questions to get access to the information you want to know. All the answers are already inside of you. You just need some help getting the answers. You need a new way of accessing that information.

Very few people can do this to a high level on their own. I can help you.
