What’s Your Point? How to Stay Focused When Life Throws You Off Balance

What’s Your Point? 

What do I mean by “What’s your point?” It’s a lesson I learned from spinning ballerinas and balancing yogis.  To spin without falling, a dancer “spots” by focusing on a fixed object as her body turns and whips her head around to see the object each time she rotates. The balancing yogi fixates on a point to stay steady.  Losing focus means wobbling and that’s bound to happen sometimes  but with maturity,  you regain focus and steady again. 

When your life feels out of balance or  you’re dizzy from spinning in circles, remember the ballerinas and yogis and ask yourself,  “What’s my point?”  Your point is something you look forward to in the future. The thing that your soul is calling you towards either in the short term or long term. It’s what gives your life meaning in that moment.  

If you want to spin perfectly or stay balanced even during chaotic times, you must first be clear about what your point is. The more you understand your purpose, the harder it’ll be for life’s ups and downs to throw you off balance or stop you from spinning and the easier it’ll be to get back in the saddle when they do.  

When you find yourself out of kilter, remember the ballerina and yogi, re-connect to your purpose and ask how you can use the events that are throwing you off to best serve your purpose.  But what if you have no clue what your purpose is? No problem.  

Next week, I’ll show you how to leverage your troubles to uncover it.  In the meantime, if you’d like more about the journey to your Soul’s Home®, click the link to my website because I’d love to see you there.
