Inspiration to help you... LIVE WITH MORE PURPOSE

Connecting to the leader within

Leaders are not made because of parking spot signs, titles, paychecks, age or even experience. I have found that people who are living their Purposeful Hustle are leaders. When you are so passionate about making a positive change in the world and are taking steps to make it happen, that kind of energy is contagious.

What are you afraid of - the process or the results?

on May 21, 2019 2:00:00 PM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Life Plan Career Wisdom Reflection Self-Care
Over time — in my own experience and through others’ stories that they’ve shared with me — I’ve realized that it’s much easier to be excited about the potential results of our actions than it is to feel excited about the process required to make them happen. A lot of times, the process is actually really scary.

Pearls of Wisdom

on May 14, 2019 2:00:00 PM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Skills Life Career
Today’s post is lifted from a 2015 speech I gave in 2015 to Pearls for Teen Girls, a Milwaukee-based organization that empowers young women with self-development tools, guidance, and support to strive for better futures.   Frankly, I hadn’t thought about the speech until a few weeks ago when I ran into an awesome woman that was in the audience.  She saw the talk and a part of it resonated with her so much she saved it on her phone and showed it to me nearly four years later!  Talk about full circle!

How to deal with naysayers

on May 7, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Skills Life Social Change Career Self-Care
Most things worth doing involve some kind of risk. Especially when we pursue projects that we care deeply about, it can feel a little scary to put ourselves out there like that. It is not unusual for Purposeful Hustlers to find themselves going against the grain to make a positive impact, but that doesn’t make it easy. Acting unconventionally can stir up self-doubt and attract the attention of others, not always in a good way. Many of the people who may question or express doubt don’t mean to do harm, but that doesn’t mean that their criticism is always productive.

So you’ve found your purpose… now what?

on Apr 30, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 2 Comments | Purpose Life Impact Social Change Passion Career Initiative Wisdom Reflection
If living out one’s purpose was easy, everyone would be doing it. But it is not easy. Even if you know what your purpose is, you might not know how to live in that purpose. It may feel like there are a lot of obstacles in the way of the difference you want to make. That is where hustle comes into play. Purpose is WHY you do something. Hustle is HOW you get it done. So, you’ve gotten to the point where you can name your purpose. You know what lights you up, and have pieced together how your unique passions, skills and experiences can be channeled to have the most positive impact on the world, but how do you pull it off?

Reach into your roots

on Apr 23, 2019 10:22:54 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Passion Initiative Family Self-Care
When considering what your unique purpose is in the world, it’s essential to reach into your roots. Only YOU have lived YOUR story. Where you have come from has made you who you are, and in many ways, has positioned you to pursue a purpose that is meant for you. Before you look forward boldly into your Purposeful Hustle, one of my biggest pieces of advice is to look back. You may be surprised what you learn about yourself that helps you articulate what you think your purpose is. You may realize you have special skill sets or insights that have specifically prepared you to make the impact you want to have in the world.

What comes first: the purpose or the hustle?

on Apr 9, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Skills Impact Passion Initiative
Making a change in this world requires really hard work. It requires long hours, strategic scheduling and pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone regularly. It requires taking chances that may feel ridiculous. But more than anything, no matter how hard you hustle, to truly have a positive impact in the way that only YOU can, you need PURPOSE.

It’s not always easy to put yourself out there, especially if you’re already surrounded by a supportive community of people who want to see you live into your purpose, but meeting new people and expanding our network is essential to growth. Especially if you are looking for more support and encouragement in pursuing your purpose, I cannot overstress how important is to find YOUR people.
