January 2019 Newsletter

January 2019 Newsletter

As we head into 2019, it is usual to make New Years’ resolutions, yet I think this should be deeper than making promises to go to the gym, lose weight, blah blah. I like to review what I’ve achieved, what I want to achieve, and what I would like my legacy to be once I’ve left this planet.  I recently posted a meme on Facebook, that said something like “Christmas is so much harder when you get older.  It’s like, what do you want this year?  I don’t know, maybe a sense of purpose, financial security, more sleep….”

‘The 2 most important days in your life are the day that you are born and the day you find out why’          – Mark Twain

A sense of purpose!? 
What does that even mean?  How do we live a life of purpose?  This question was puzzling me, so after a chat with a friend of mine, we both agreed that if you live your passion, then your life will have purpose.  Both of us discovered that helping others is our purpose, and only through living that every single day are we able to live a fulfilling existence.

So many people aren’t sure how to define, here are my thoughts:

Purpose isn’t a career choice, brand vision, or goal.

In my humble opinion, your purpose is:

  • How you care and share at any time, with anyone;
  • It’s likely to involve looking out for the people we love;
  • Expressing ourselves freely when we feel stuck, or
  • Discovering how to be better friends and parents.

Yes, you may have big dreams. You might have a vision for a business empire or want to create an amazing piece of art. You might be desperate to start a family or fired up to end world poverty. Yet none of these are your life purpose. These are big, audacious goals. Purpose may inspire them, help define and refine them, but those are goals – not purpose.

Should, Must….
Have you heard people say I should, or I must and then… they never do!

When you let go of all the “I should do’s,” you will almost certainly discover that your purpose amplifies one of: playing, experimenting, creating, learning, sharing, loving, caring, teaching, transforming, adventuring, or healing. These are all ways to contribute to the flourishing of others while blossoming yourself.

Struggling to find your purpose?
If you are struggling to find your purpose and would like to attend a breakthrough journey, why not join us for our very first Purpose Quest at Woodlands Spa with renowned Transformational Forum Facilitator Janet Goldblatt?

Janet is a catalyst of now-here Global Innovation Consultancy. She has been facilitating personal and leadership development, as well as transformational workshops for over 10 years. She works with individuals, corporations and leaders. Her passion is to transform leadership and their organizations by guiding them through the principles and frameworks of the creative rollercoaster. The Purpose Quest is an opportunity to manifest a life of purpose, joy and success!

The Workshop
Based on an ancient rite of passage, a Purpose Quest is a transformational experience for all involved. It is generated from a moment of individual breakthrough, and as such has a quality, power and resonance that puts it into an elevated league in comparison to other processes of self-development.

It is a life changing event that she has facilitated for a couple of years now for leaders all over the globe and we have invited her to run the first one in South Africa right here at Woodlands Spa.

Lots of love,
Tania and the Woodlands Spa team.
