This weeks Millennial Nugget of Purpose is all about profitable habits.  

The quote I am going to start with today reads:  

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."  

It hadn’t hit me of the power of a habit until I was asked by my daughter “why do you always make up your bed?” It wasn’t until then that I realized how much control and power we truly have over ourselves. A habit is defined as an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary. Think about when you were a child and how your parents told you to look both ways before crossing the street. This has become so ingrained in us that we don’t even think about it when we come to an intersection. These are deep seeded behaviors, but old ones can be changed and new ones can be formed.

Are you living in a prison...A prison of prioritizing how other people think and/or feel about you? For me it started when I was young and followed me clear into our adulthood. I’ve felt the emptiness of being someone I wasn’t…Of living a life that was not true to me. I remember thinking that this is how I am suppose to do things…This is how I am suppose to handle the situation, all based on what other people told me.  It wasn’t until I found this that I truly began to live…That a void I felt for so long was filled.

This weeks Millennial Nugget Of Purpose is a continuation of last week's where I was asked by one of my new coaching clients, "How do I know if I should be an entrepreneur?"

The quote I am going to start with today comes from Steve Jobs and it reads:

"Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life"

Being an entrepreneur sounds so exciting and tempting. No more bosses, no pressure from a job which is not satisfying you, and no limited pay check. Sounds pretty good, right? Entrepreneurial life is definitely really exciting. But 9-5 will almost immediately turn to 24/7. Your customers become your new bosses and the size of your paycheck will vary from month to month. If you persist, work hard enough and innovate, you can join the “club” of successful entrepreneurs. However, the thought of a fluctuating paycheck and hours shifting from a normal day job to an all day job, can bring serious reservations to making the jump. So how do you decide what makes the most sense for you? 

Press play and listen to the three ways most entrepreneurs think differently. Which road will you take? Listen and find out! This is just another step in becoming the best version of you. As Always: Be Inspiring & Stay Inspired.
