Quote to Consider
If you are looking to find your passion,
be curious about the world around
you. Venture into new areas and try
different things. Passion comes
from within. You will know when you
have found it, because you will fee it.

Project #2: Your Current Elevated Purpose
This exercise is to make us more mindful of the impact or purpose we have on others.The instructions were explained during the last session and they are also below.
1. Watch the 2-minute video below about Vera Wang to understand how she sees her impact on women as a fashion designer. It's a very "elevated" perspective and is most likely quite different than how you would describe her impact. Pay particular attention to the first minute of this two-minute video. Also listen carefully to hear the one word Wang uses most often.
2. Next, consider at least two major roles in your life (manager, support staff, entrepreneur, wife, mother, friend, volunteer, etc.) and write about your impact based on the insightful and elevated way that Vera Wang sees her work.
When we elevate the impact we are having on those in our personal, professional or business lives, we experience a greater sense of our current purpose.
Stretch your mind and embrace the totality of the impact you have on others through what you are currently doing. Then write your thoughts in your notebook and plan to share some of them during our next session.
If you have any questions at all about this project or the others, don't hesitate to contact me at Donna@JustGetSerious.com
