Podcast Episode 5: What's your purpose in life and what's holding you back from achieving it? A conversation with Jennifer Longmore
This episode is going help you clarify your purpose and stay on track to accomplish it…
Jennifer Longmore calls herself an extroverted introvert. In fact many people in the world who are out doing big things are introverts, she says. In this episode, Jennifer discusses how inner tendencies and fears can actually be an energy source to propel you forward to achieve your purpose in life. Through this interview session, Jennifer explains the cues to look for in determining how to know if you’re living the life you were meant to have.
Most people want to know what am I here to do? What is my purpose in life? The truth is, Jennifer says, they already know what their purpose is and they have everything inside of them to create an amazing life. The issue is, once acknowledged, the person has to get honest and do something about it. They are reluctant to take the next step. They fear that they won’t be supported, or won’t know what to do once they get started. They don’t know how to clear away the blocks so they can live their purpose.
Here, Jennifer gets real about reading volumes of books to make her purpose come true. She says no amount of information will help you live your purpose, but it is the inspiration to go out and achieve it. Living your best life doesn’t just happen. If you want to love your life, you have to do what you were born to do.
Jennifer talks candidly about her own venture into business and how she went from 7 clients to a 6-figure income in 10 months, because she was doing what she was born to do. She tells about being laser focused and motivated even on days when procrastination is tempting. Be a doer, not a talker, she advises.
Choose the opportunities that are right for you. The world is flooded with opportunities. How do you know which of them are for you? Jennifer says she holds each opportunity up against a measuring stick. On a scale of one to ten, where does this rate? If the opportunity isn’t a 10, she doesn’t do it. This doesn’t mean missing out, it means staying connected to her best life. There will always be fears and obstacles to overcome. Expectations will seem impossible to live up to, but you have to get out of your own way. Once you find your why, require it, expect it, make it come true.
