How to Connect with Your Ultimate Purpose to Achieve The Vision of Your Life 131

connect with your ultimate purpose in life

Whoever you are, you’re more special than you realize. You aren’t born just to be average, but have an ultimate purpose. And only finding it and connecting with it can let you live the lifestyle of your dreams, while reaching all your goals and contributing to the world.

Who you are today – in case you’re not satisfied with your current life – isn’t who you’re supposed to be. There’s way too much potential within and the best thing is that you can decide to unleash it at any moment and start following your destiny.

At Tony Robbins Date With Destiny event, you will learn that your ultimate destiny is determined by the choices you make. If you want to change your life, you must change your values so they match with your goals and purpose. Ask yourself this question: If you were to design the life of your dreams, what would your values need to be to shape the ultimate destiny that you desire and deserve?

The world we live in, however, doesn’t really want you to become the best you can be. It’s made for the average people, who don’t believe in themselves and who can’t stay focused on their big goals because of the many distractions from daily life (unproductive activities, daily worries, our own insecurities and doubts, other people’s opinion, unimportant tasks, a job we don’t enjoy, social media, too many devices around us, etc.)

But there’s a way to leave all that behind and get back on the right path. It’s where you’ll connect with your purpose, have a clear vision of the life you want to achieve and go after it.

Let’s see what you can do to become a winner and finally see yourself successful and find meaning and purpose in your days:

The 3 Steps to Finding Your Ultimate Purpose

1. Assess your current lifestyle.

You didn’t just wake up one day being who you are. Instead, all your thoughts and actions are a result of every single decision you’ve made over the years, the way you reacted to what life brought you, and all the little things you did and didn’t do that seemed insignificant at the time.

All that adds up and today you see the power of compound effect. It’s a combination of your personality, daily habits and practices, and every single thought that goes on in your mind.

So before you move onto changing it and turning your life around, you must first get clear about the current situation.

Be honest with yourself and define what you don’t like – your bad sides, lack of skills, attitude towards life, people you don’t want around too much, goals you haven’t achieved but still want to, things in your surroundings you don’t want to be there, etc.

Once you do that, you’ll know what needs to be eliminated from your life and can start working on it. Then, when it’s gone, all that’s left will be your ultimate purpose, the stuff you love doing, the people you care about, and only things that bring you joy and let you grow you level up in life.

2. Ask yourself the right questions.

Uncovering your ultimate purpose in life so that you can achieve your vision requires self-knowledge – a deeper understanding of what you truly desire and what will make you happy.

So ask yourself questions like:

  • How does an ideal day look like for me?
  • What is something I can do for hours without getting bored or exhausted?
  • How can I find a way to make it a permanent part of my life?
  • Is it possible to turn it into my career? Is it something people would pay for that will bring them value or solve a common problem?
  • What skills and qualities do I need to build to be proud of who I am?
  • Will I find satisfaction and have peace of mind once I get closer to my ultimate purpose?
  • How will it be my legacy? How can I use it to leave a mark?

3. Make a step-by-step plan.

Now turn all that information (the conclusions you made about your current lifestyle and the answers of the questions above) into specific goals.

Write all that down starting with your ultimate purpose in one sentence. Then, break it down into smaller actions that will take you to it.

Each of these is a goal you need to reach on your journey. Let’s make them measurable and more specific. Divide them into smaller and simpler goals.

In the end, you must have a list of actions each of which seems like a no-brainer. Then, your job is to take at least one such step daily in order to stay focused on the ultimate vision and to actually see progress.

Staying Connected to Your Purpose

It’s crucial to make sure you don’t let other people or issues from daily life be an obstacle and distract you.

There are easy ways to stay motivated, consistent and concentrated. Here are some:

  • Review your ultimate purpose daily.

If every morning you wake up with that one sentence describing how you want your life to be in the near future, and revising it in the evening, that’s what will lead you to success.

Most often the main reason why we fail is because we aren’t patient enough and can’t work on one goal long enough to see it become a reality.

So to make sure you’re always on the right path, keep your ultimate purpose in mind daily.

  • Make it a priority.

Put it on the top of your to-do list and take the action connected to it right after you wake up. That’s how you build momentum and see results pretty fast.

  • Visualize success.

Let your mind believe you can achieve the vision of your life. Imagine who you’ll be once you do that in details, feel it, have faith in it.

  • Surround yourself with like-minded people.

Instead of being around negative, toxic people who constantly complain and don’t dream big, find the ones who inspire you to be your best. Discuss your ideas with them, learn from them and support each other.

  • Find daily sources of inspiration.

Read about successful people and what they did differently. Watch TED talks, read inspirational quotes, attend events (like Tony Robbins’ Date with Destiny), take courses, etc.

So that’s how you connect with your ultimate purpose in life.

You’re destined for greatness. Never forget that.

What can you do today to get closer to that vision?

How a Classic Car Enthusiast Turned Entrepreneur with a Business Operating in 36 Countries 7

interview claus stig christensen ceo bookaclassic

This is an interview-style post with Claus Stig Christensen.

Q: Hey, Claus. What’s your background and what do you do?

A: I am the CEO of BookAclassican online platform that allows the owners of classic vehicles to rent out their cars, motorcycles, trucks and vans for weddings, events and for use in film and television. I am a classic car owner myself and have a Jaguar MKII. 

I have been self-employed since 1998. I started an import/export company (Cubrix ltd.) where I imported electronic goods from far east and sold it to the supermarket chains (Aldi, Netto, Lidl etc.) and DIY chains across Northern Europe.

While staring up BookAclassic, I realised I had no know-how and knowledge of e-commerce and the mechanisms that drive the internet so I went back to school (Aalborg University) and finished a Bachelor in E-commerce in 2015.

Q: Where did the idea about BookAclassic come from?

A: I was a classic car enthusiast who realised there was a lot of value in my Vespa Sprint that I wasn’t tapping into.

It started when I was a poor student back in 1991. I did not have the money to store my Vespa for the winter so I came up with the idea to offer it as window decoration in fashion shops on the high street.

It took me one hour and I had rented out my Vespa to three shops for the winter. And in return, I got clothing worth about £400 – this sparked the idea that classic vehicles could be a cash cow instead of a money pit!

Q: What can people find on your platform and how does the system work?

 BookAclassic is the go-to source for anyone looking to rent a classic vehicle

A: BookAclassic is the go-to source for anyone looking to rent a classic vehicle and provides an elegant platform for those who want to make a bit of extra cash from a beloved car, bus, motorcycle or other classic vehicles.

We give the owner full control over the bookings they take, whether they’re driving their classic car for a wedding or allowing someone to take the wheel of their vintage bus for a road trip.

The most popular bookings on the site are vehicles for weddings, proms and other events. To facilitate this, we are cooperating with professional owners and car museums, as well as private collectors.

In these instances, the owner has complete control over their vehicle and how it’s driven. There’s also the option to offer your vehicle for events, photo shoots and for use in adverts, television shows and movies. We know how much people love to see their cars on screen, and we’re very happy to make this happen for so many of our customers.

The secure system automates the booking process allowing owners to easily view jobs and accept or decline them. Owners also have control over their profile, available dates and prices.

Q: What dreams can BookAclassic make come true?

A: We want to help private collectors fund maintenance on their vehicles, buy more classics and keep them on the road. As I mentioned before, owners love to see their beloved vehicles on television, in films or used in adverts.

We have one client in Portugal whose Triumph was recently used in a music video. He was over the moon seeing his car be part of that and the money he got from the booking paid for the car’s maintenance too.

Q: What were your biggest challenges when you were just starting out?

A: Everybody said to me an automatic system couldn’t take care of customers needs better than a person on a call – that got me fired up! I wanted to show everyone that I could do it.

I was the only person that believed it could work and it would be the future.

Then I saw the film The Social Network about the start of Facebook and I realised that you just have to think big. The globe is a small place when you are on the net.

I have realised that the limits to what you can do are often in your own head. There is no limit to what you can achieve if you set your mind to it.

Q: How has the business evolved over the years?

A: BookAclassic started in just one country and has grown to serve 36 countries across the world, including the UK. The advanced booking systems allows owners to upload their vehicles for free with the company taking a percentage of confirmed bookings only.

The team are all classic car enthusiasts and we built the platform based on how we’d want to rent out our own classic cars, then developed it with feedback from other vehicle owners. This allowed us to streamline the booking process, ensure peace of mind for everyone involved, and make everything as simple as possible with text and email alerts.

Q: What’s your best piece of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?

A: I have a few:

  • Build your business on what you love – then work will become a joy.
  • You are never going to be the fastest runner if you follow in others’ footsteps.
  • Find your own niche, make sure you are the best, and always work on offering amazing service.
  • You only fail when you stop trying.
