“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds: your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
What this quote means to women entrepreneurs:
How many times have you heard, “You need to find your big ‘why'”? This ‘why’ is the great purpose that propels you forward, whether the going is easy or rough. It is your intrinsic motivation that keeps you getting up in the morning and marching onward.
However, your ‘why’ does more than just that.
When you are clear about your ‘why’ magical things can happen. Like Patanjali says, your thoughts break their bonds — you find yourself able to think outside of your normal thinking box. New ideas on how to accomplish your goal come to you, sometimes from strange places or even the recesses of your mind in dreams.
In addition, when you are propelled by a compelling, personal ‘why,’ you will find that you are braver, stronger and more talented that you thought you were. And, in the process you become magnetic to all the helpful resources around you in your world.
All sorts of resources show up, as if by magic.
And all this wonderful, magical mojo begins when you dig deep and get into touch with and clear about your ‘why,’ your greater purpose, your extraordinary project.
So, why do you do what you do?
