You might be wondering how I became a master at what I do and who can’t care less about what they do. Well, here’s a story. A few years ago, I started learning about energy work. And as you might expect, it was an interesting journey and a much needed one because my energy level was at an all time low and I needed something new and better.
After taking a lot of courses on this topic, I also decided to enroll in some workshops and trainings on energy work. This led me into an experience that I never thought I would go through. It was an amazing thing.
What I discovered during this time was that people, when they were first getting started with energy work, were not sure about their own practice and that they didn’t really know what energy work was all about. They were unsure about their motivation and what to expect from their treatments. In fact, many were afraid to attend the sessions, were embarrassed and avoided the issue altogether. They could find no joy in the entire thing and what they found was not self-awareness, but a lack of recognition.
To discover and follow your purpose is to begin to discover and follow your path. The same goes for being successful. To find out what it is that you truly want to do, what your purpose is and why you are doingit, is a wonderful gift that helps you to soar to new heights.
With the help of The Art of Noticing, you can discover, self-awareness and your life purpose. If you are afraid of where you are going, if you are uncertain of your path, then you might as well just stop and fall off the wagon. Learn to embrace the journey, to savor the flavor and the rewards. And that begins with understanding what your purpose is and being grateful for whatever you have achieved so far.
You can spark creativity, passion and joy simply by being self-aware with what you already know and discover. It is so simple to be a master at what you do. It is so much easier to be creative when you are truly aware of what you are capable of doing. You know what you can do, not what you think you can do. It takes courage to seek and discover your purpose and you must take the risk to learn the art of self-awareness.
Discovering, self-awareness and The Art of Noticing, when combined, help you unleash the creativity, passion and joy that you have been suppressing for so long. It is a common sense discovery, but most people never follow through with it because they lack the courage to do so. But you have to make the move to really become a master at what you do.
