Magenta Coaching NLPI WAS FORTUNATE enough to listen to a radio show recently where they were discussing euthanasia and something struck me about one of the story’s being told…

The story was of a lady called Alison with serious health issues so much so that during the 1980’s her wish was to end her life (this desire was present for more than a decade!)…

This was obviously distressing for those close to her and one persistent and caring individual (NB this person was a not a counsellor, coach or therapist) worked with her towards the end of the decade discussing what she did enjoy…

It transpired that she had a love of travel and despite the obvious practical and logistical challenges he helped her to travel and it was during one such trip to India that something miraculous happened…

She witnessed disabled children in India playing crawling around in in the dust (smiling) with none of the equipment that would be present in the UK.

In that moment something changed inside her; it was if someone had struck a match and the light from inside ignited, all of a sudden she realised something, SHE HAD A PURPOSE!

In that moment, she decided to do something about the situation these children found themselves in and she set about setting up a charity when she returned to the UK…

Alison lived for a further 20 + years with a deteriorating health and conversely an increasing quality of life as she was more and more in touch with her purpose in life…

This story touched me not for any moral reason but for the inspiration that can be gleamed when you connect with your purpose in life…

So when thinking of goals and aspirations in life first think what am I passionate about, why do I do what I do, follow your passion and bliss and set goals that link to these and then simply take the first baby step!

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO CONNECT TO YOUR PURPOSE AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!
