Purpose makes you move...

on Jan 21, 2019 8:01:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 2 Comments | Reflection Social Change Purpose
I remember feeling overwhelmed as a young teenager standing on the grounds of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. I had chills all over my body and a stirring deep in my belly knowing that the life of one of my heroes was tragically taken just steps away from where I stood. Having the chance each year to set aside a day to reflect on the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and his leadership is such a gift. When I think back to that moment, of the powerful experience I had as a young woman at that site, as well as what Dr. King was advocating for that day he was killed, something essential about purpose becomes so clear to me: our purposes will take us to different places, sometimes places beyond what we could have imagined. We have to trust it.

Self-care for purposeful hustlers

on Jan 15, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Plan Life Skills Purpose Self-Care
These days, we hear the word “self-care” tossed around a lot. It’s used in so many different ways and has become a buzzword to sell products ranging from face masks to yoga classes. It’s used so much that it can almost feel like another form of stress. We might get caught thinking, “I have so much going on already, and now I need to worry about self-care too!” But whether we like it or not, taking good care of ourselves is essential. We need to be a friend to ourselves. Especially as Purposeful Hustlers, in order live into our purpose, we need to be able to be the best versions of ourselves. We need to know what we need to stay healthy, mentally, physically and emotionally. Our wellbeing is SO IMPORTANT.

Your Purpose in 15 Minutes

Our purpose doesn’t always show up for us at the most convenient times. But then again, with how busy we are, when would be a convenient time? Do we ever really have time to drop everything and spend all of our time doing directly purpose-related work? For many of us, the answer is no. Those moments of vibrancy, instances of inspiration when we feel pulled into purpose-related work often come in the midst of the chaos of our lives.

There are events that wreck us, things that break us down in ways we weren’t prepared for, that make it hard to show up in the world the same way the next day.

You Are Capable of Making Social Impact if You Possess These Qualities

on Oct 16, 2018 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Skills Impact Social Change
I like to think of those who make a social impact in the world as Purposeful Hustlers. They are people who know WHY they do something (their purpose), and HOW to get it done (their hustle). Their Purposeful Hustle is a propelling force that drives them to keep going, to explore all angles of a problem, and to not give up. It shapes the way they choose to move in the world and their ability to actualize their dreams. Purposeful Hustlers see the world for what it could be. They learn how to push things out of their heads and into reality. Maybe most importantly, purposeful hustlers learn how to do things without waiting for permission.
