Inspiration to help you... LIVE WITH MORE PURPOSE

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.

Aiming for 80%

on Mar 12, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Skills Life Plan Family Wisdom Self-Care
Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule? It’s called the Pareto principle, and it states that roughly 80 percent of the effects come from 20 percent of the causes. This could be for anything: 80 percent of sales come from 20 percent of the customers, 80 percent of injuries are caused by 20 percent of hazards, 80 percent of points are scored by 20 percent of players on a team. You get the picture. The point is that a small concentration of energy, resources, talent or some other quality can create an immense impact.

Purpose makes you move...

on Jan 21, 2019 8:01:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 2 Comments | Purpose Social Change Reflection
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.

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.
