Is your purpose in alignment with your value and belief?

By Benjamin S C Ugoji

All aspects of the realisation of your dreams begin with the knowledge of your purpose, vision and goals coupled with action plans towards the accomplishment of your desired outcome.

However, underneath these ambitious dreams and lofty hopes there are two key ingredients that determine your success. I’ll mention these as we go on inn this discussion. But most of the time, when people set out to accomplish a particular goal they have two choices. They either look within themselves to link with their resourceful self or they look outside of themselves with the hope that their ability to realise their dream is within them. What do I mean by thse two set of propositions. Well, any get accomplishment or act of creativity begins at a mental level as well as a physical leve. At the mental level the idea and thought for the creative endeavour is conceived and with plan of action the desire is turned into a reality. This is not all. Any act of creativity has some challenges that go with it. For example, there may be considerations on the mental level, feeling like fear or obstacles along the way. Either way these obstacles are on the mental and physical levels.

It is important to understand that there are subtle elements that can hinder our going forward with pour pupose. These elements have great impact on our ability to align our purpose to our dream. The aim lof this article is to highlight these element and to point our why it is important that we need to focus our attention on leveraging them to our advantage.

Success in a nutshell

Success is simply the realisation of any worthwhile goal. The key to achieving success is based on our been able to make positive changes on three areas – our mind set (identity), our knowledge (what we do as a result of who we become) and our experience (the outcome form our experience). These changes are both internal on the mental level as well as external on the environmental level. For for to realise our dream we need to be committed towards working on a dynamic and positive front on all the three levels.

Value and belief

These two elements hold the secret to our realising our purpose. Values are the principle which drives our behaviour (what we do or didn’t do), they give meaning to our life. Hence our value defines our purpose or could become our purpose.

When we engage in what we do with our values we ultimately engage with our hearts and minds. Our beliefs and values define who we are and what we do. Therefore they result in personal rules on which we live by. The key factor here is that our belief and values hold the key to the way we do things For example if our identity is changes a little bit it does impact on our belief; in fact it could have visible change in what we are able to achieve. Values make us the way we are, they drive us forward and provide the motivation to how we live our lives. Knowledge of our values and awareness of the behaviour that springs from holding such values put us in a position to set clearer goals and make decisions about what is important to us and what we want in life.

Values hold the key to being a motivated, successful and rewarding life.

Next time you want to accomplish a purpose be clear about your values and beliefs because they subconsciously hols the key to your ability to make progress towards the realisation of your dream.

They hold the key to who you are and what you do.

      Hello, You are so correct when you say that realization of your dreams begins with a purpose. Otherwise your are floundering around depending on blind luck to take you through life. Belief and values are important to helping you establish your visions and then executing the goals needed to fulfill your dreams. You have summed it up well.
