The hero’s journey: Your journey

The hero’s journey: Your journey

It takes courage to follow our dreams, to listen to ourselves and take effective action to nurture and grow a business. It is a journey that we can embrace for all its up’s and down’s, which is mirrored in our own personal lives of challenges, gaining strength and moving on from there.

Creating a world where each individual and business lives their purpose, guided by their values.

An interview with Jay Boolkin of Promise or Pay

On a day when snow was still present on the ground in Iceland, where spring still seems to be playing hard-to-get, I had the honour of a skype interview with Jay Boolkin of Promise or Pay. Jay is an Australian social entrepreneur who is currently stationed in hot and humid Cambodia. Our worlds presently couldn’t seem more different, but our common love of living a life of purpose brought us together on this March day.

Commitment to purpose: the kind that creates more, not less

Commitment seems to have a very powerful charge for some, and quite natural for others. The word itself is perceived through different filters and therefore different re-actions when we think of the term.
You’re committing firstly to yourself. You’re committing to your life, a path of adventure with this intention in mind: your purpose.

Clarity in Purpose: Self-Love

Love is the lens of clarity. It removes the barriers of self doubt and replaces it with peace. The secret in life is to love oneself so as to serve a greater purpose. It is only possible through the active flow of love you are able to foster with yourself.

It is the 1st day of a new year and with that it brings hope, goals and personal commitments. It begins with a review of what my process with startupwithpurpose has been in 2013.

Kristín Grímsdóttir from Possunt: They can, who think they can

In this interview Kristín Grímsdóttir recounts her story. What struck me most was her courage, her willingness to be open and to remain curious. She has a deep love for people, is facinated to understand what makes them tick and why they do what they do. Not only does she say she believes in the goodness of people, but through this interview she highlighted moments to me that reflected who she truly is.

Greatness

 What exactly is greatness? Greatness is not some grandiose thing or act you will do or achieve. It may be part of it, but it isn’t the whole. It’s being completely in the knowing of yourself; in your purpose even though it may not be clear, but it smiles back at you from a future […]

Enoughness: I am enough, you are enough, there is enough

“I am enough, you are enough, there is enough” was the mantra of my day. When is enough, enough? When have we reached that point of: enoughness.

Flow State

Being in a flow state is the epitome of being in a state of being in the moment. Flow state is what I believe we’re all looking for when we’re fully engaged in something on our own or co-created with others. Flow state is achieved when everything seems to perfectly come together when you, others and everything around you is in perfect harmony.

Why startupwithpurpose?

Our good-ness as humans is what inspires me, it is what drives me, it is what I choose to shine the spotlight on. For in that we can change the stories of loss, to stories of courage, connection and community.
