The Power of Purpose and Authenticity

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



First things first... Why should you care?

Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.

Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.

Let's get started with today's challenge!

Let's Get To The Point

Donnie Thomas:

Hey, everybody. Hope you all are doing well. So today is day three of my 30 days of positivity challenge. And today is a topic that I'm really excited about. I always seem to get into these moods right after I exercise. But anyway, so today is about purpose and mission. And so for me, my personal mission is to help as many people as I can with the gifts that God has given me, my gift of speech, my gift of analysis, my gift of an understanding of real estate, all of the things that God has given me in order to bless other people with.

Donnie Thomas:

And for me, it didn't really fall just out of the sky. I had to do a lot of work in order to arrive to a place where I understood what my personal mission was. It actually came to me when I was in deep sleep because I had been pondering it, thinking about it over and over and over, day in and day out. And a voice, I say God, spoke to me and said, "Your mission is to help as many people as you can." And so God gave me the what, but it was up to me to figure out the how. And through the how, I understand. I said, "What are my gift? What are my desires? What do I like? What don't I like? Who the hell am I?"

Donnie Thomas:

And I was having a conversation with a client the other day. And I said to the client, I said, "The core of who you are really starts with your values. And I think that people do themselves a disservice by trying to align their values with what they believe society wants them to be. If you're an introvert, people will say, "Oh, you're supposed to be outgoing and an extrovert to be successful." There are a lot of successful introverts. Be who you are.

Donnie Thomas:

But it takes a lot of work in order to sit down and be very intentional, sorry, about identifying the values that really align with who you are. But it's through that work, through that tough and rigorous work, that you will begin to see, "Okay, this is my path. This is who I am." And this is what I coach a lot of people on who are really stuck with understanding who they are is first of all, understanding what are your values? Do the work. Put your values into categories, prioritize them, and really think through that. And you'll first start with who you are so you can understand what you're meant to be. Peace.
