Many people in the U.S. subscribe to the Protestant work ethic, the belief that one must work hard in order to prosper. But success does not require struggle and suffering. It can be effortless and you can actually have fun while pursuing your goals, even though you’re working incredibly hard.
The key to unlocking effortless success lies in your choice of goals. The more your goals are aligned with your purpose, the more fun you’ll have and the more easily you’ll achieve the success you desire.
The key to effortless success. We each have a unique purpose to fulfill here on Earth. Identifying, acknowledging and honoring that purpose is perhaps the most important action a successful person can take.
Without a purpose in life, it’s easy to get sidetracked and end up accomplishing very little. But when you have a purpose, everything seems to fall quickly into place. The people, resources and opportunities you need naturally gravitate toward you. The world benefits, too, because when you act in alignment with your true life’s purpose, all your actions automatically serve and benefit others.
What alignment means. We’re all gifted with a set of talents and interests that serve as clues to our purpose. Once you know what your life’s purpose is, you can begin to organize your activities around pursuing it. Everything you do should be an expression of your purpose. If an activity or goal doesn’t fit your purpose, don’t spend time on it.
