You need this Principle to discover your purpose and live a productive life.

You need to read this if you seek to discover your purpose and be more productive…

LAMP principle is an effective set of techniques to help people live a purposeful and productive life.

The greatest achievement of life is to understand exactly what your purpose is, in this world of so many controversies, news, stories, lifestyles and all. It is amazing to realize that each person has a specific purpose tasked by the Universe. The most successful people in this world have one thing in common, they all live a purposeful life. They discovered why they exist, live that purpose which obviously adds meaning and significance to their lives. This gives them happiness, fulfillment, fame, riches and all the amazing things  the world can offer. To be like or better than that icon, great leader, business tycoon, legend, you have always adored, you need to live a purposeful life.

It is one thing to have a purpose, it is another (which is the most vital) to discover the purpose. When we mention purpose, it simply means the reason of your existence, your responsibilities, the role you exist to play to complete the circle of the universe. Discovering our purpose can seem herculean but nothing is sweeter and more interesting than living a life that’s dedicated to understanding why we breathe, why we were born and why we exist.

All you need to know is the How! Many of us often consciously and unconsciously question ourselves, what is my purpose? How do I discover my purpose? All these questions are very vital, more vital than life itself. If you live and there is no purpose for such life, the feeling is synonymous to being dead because you are overwhelmed with the feeling of emptiness that you feel lifeless, useless and tired all the time.

This usually is a major causal factor of mental distress and in fact physical sickness. Read on to understand more on how you can discover your purpose, develop yourself and be more productive.

The rapid way to discover your purpose and live a  more productive life is through adopting the following techniques that have been summarized to be LAMP.

1. Learning: As stated earlier, it seems difficult discovering who you are and your purpose because you don’t know how to. First step is reading this present blog. Learning is an endless process. Therefore don’t limit your learning to four walls of classes, exam preparations, school books etc. Read widely, be open minded, explore various fields, focus on yourself and decide what captures your interests more. Read self development books, attend seminars, speak to learned people, psychologists and others who you know are capable of impacting unto you a meaningful knowledge. Learn from others’ stories and experiences to help you easily navigate your journey too. Each person’s journey differs but it often requires same attitude to discover and embark on the journey.

2. Application: Knowledge without an evidence of it is useless and in fact detrimental. Every knowledge holds a space in the mind, if not put into fruitful use, it takes up the space for no reason and more painfully it causes anxiety. The reason is that your whole body has received a signal of a significant information but if you don’t put it to use then your neural system reacts negatively to the entire information. Like punishing you for knowing the right thing but not doing it. Reading a book on how to cook will not automatically imbibe the skills in you, until you apply the information. You get your hands on the kitchen utensils and food stuffs then make efforts to actually cook.

Once you learn that it is important to read to learn, you won’t magically learn until you adopt the knowledge by actually reading. If you learn that over thinking leads to anxiety, you will get rid of anxiety only if you adopt the knowledge and stay away from over thinking. You must apply the knowledge, practically adopt the principles and rules then you will observe progress. You can’t be a millionaire just by reading millionaire mindset book until you act out the knowledge. Let there be strong mutual connection between your sensory and motor system. Motor system is responsible for practical actions, body movements while sensory system is concerned with the input, taking in the information. As stated, its not enough to take in the information, its more important to act out the information.

Complement your learning with the application of the information then you will surely experience rapid progress and abundant success…Rukayyah Rahman

3.Mindfulness: This is very important and cuts across the whole process, because it symbolizes your keen attention, full concentration and focus. We will discuss more on mindfulness in one of our subsequent posts. But we will briefly discuss it here to make the point concerning how to be more productive. Once you are mindful, you are more responsive and energetic. Your body, mind and soul are awakened and ready to receive divine messages from the Universe. At this stage, you will be compelled to do only what is right and relevant. You will be able to listen and yield to the voice of the soul which has all the information we need to grow as human beings and of course discover our purpose and be more productive. It resonates our soul with the Universe. It gives us peace and improve our memory system. Being mindful fuels our passion, inspires us more to act now! There is a sense of urgency and responsibility when we are mindful.  We are able to set our goals, plan effectively and consistently, consequently we get to fulfill our purposes upon discovery of the purposes.

4. Practice: This is similar to applying the knowledge mentioned above but a bit more. Here, you have to be steady with the principle 2 which is applying your knowledge to real life situations. If you read about how to improve your memory system, your memory system will get improved only when you apply the knowledge, not just once but continuously till you master it and it has become a habit. It is stated that it takes 21 days to form a particular habit so this is a bonus knowledge, that is, you have to keep practising for a couple of days, your brain adjusts to this reality and you are conditioned to keep up with the habits. All of our behaviors today were formed through conditioning and persistent practice. We can get rid of all unfavorable attitudes, all we need is mindfulness, determination and constant practice. With the right knowledge and constant practice you will be more productive and continue to gradually uncover and live your purpose.

You need to understand that its a gradual process, the discovery and fulfillment are a lifetime journey but you need to ensure at every phase there is a fruitful outcome, hold on, keep it up, be fierce and fearless, you will keep growing and you will continue to progress in your journey of your discovery and achievements. LAMP is the secret of all the great leaders. They keep learning, apply their knowledge, adopt mindfulness and continue practising by repeating the cycle over and over again.

 

Transform Your Life and Career For The Best Now

Transform Your Life and Career For The Best Now

To effectively transform and elevate your life and career you need to read Power of Now By Eckart Tolle.

      A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. “I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on? ” ” Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember. ” ” Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.” “Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger.

The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold. The Author of this book-Power of Now is the stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look inside. Not inside any box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer, inside yourself. “But I am not a beggar,” that’s your thought. Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.

If you seek pure and long lasting transformation, this book is recommended. It touches all areas of your life; your health, career, relationships will progressively improve if you read and apply the words in this book. It draws your attention to what is false in you. It speaks of the nature of human unconsciousness and dysfunction as well as its most common behavioral manifestations, from conflict in relationships to warfare between tribes or nations. Such knowledge is vital, for unless you learn to recognize the false as false — as not you — there can be no lasting transformation, and you would always end up being drawn back into illusion and into some form of pain.

On this level, the author also shows you how not to make that which is false in you into a self and into a personal problem, for that is how the false perpetuates itself. On another level, the book speaks of a profound transformation of human consciousness — not as a distant future possibility, but available now no matter who or where you are. You are shown how to free yourself from enslavement to the mind, enter into this enlightened state of consciousness and sustain it in everyday life.

On this level of the book, the words are not always concerned with information, but often designed to draw you into this new consciousness as you read. Again and again, the Author endeavors to take you with him into that timeless state of intense conscious presence in the Now, so as to give you a taste of enlightenment. Until you are able to experience consciousness, you may find those passages somewhat repetitive.

As soon as you do, however, you will realize that they contain a great deal of spiritual power, and they may become for you the most rewarding parts of the book. Moreover, since every person carries the seed of enlightenment within, the knower within you who dwells behind the thinker is being addresses in the book, the deeper self that immediately recognizes spiritual truth, resonates with it, and gains strength from it.

This book is recommended for your personal development and motivation to actively navigate your life which consequently develop every area of your life.
