The 2nd BOOSTER we talked about was – Purpose. Purpose can be small or big. It can be as simple as living happily by yourself or live the entire life for 2-3 family members or it can be making huge impact to the state/country/world through whatever pursuits you take up. Most leadership and spiritual literature talk about contributing beyond yourself etc. “Changing the World” or “Impacting People Lives” is the new slogan of purposeful life.
How “Living Beyond Yourself” enhances life productivity?. It is simple math actually. If you just live for yourself or for 2-3 people then your life productivity is X or 2X or 3X. But when you impact more number of people through your life – your life productivity multiplies by that much. If you impact 100 people then it is 100X or if you impact one million then it is million X. You may be thinking why the hell I need to impact so many people and isn’t it sufficient if me and my family are happy. Yes, it is more than sufficient. Then why all the great leaders (politics, business or any area) are behind this impacting many people concept. Are they sacrificing more? Not really. Nature has a beautiful design and an accounting system to reward with happiness in relation to how many people you are positively impacting. They are not fools and they get kick out of it. Let’s say you postively impacted 100 people then you get that much of happiness. This concept of “Happiness ROI”, I will talk in detail in some other series. But the point is….
- More number of people you impact positively then your life productivity will improve those many times
- And, as a reward you get that much of happiness. Nature takes care of it.
Impact can be made through simple acts also !!
