Absolutely on Purpose is a workbook (emphasis on WORK),
This review is from: Absolutely on Purpose: A Kick-Ass Guide to Unfurling Your Brilliance Across the Universe (Kindle Edition)
Absolutely on Purpose is a workbook (emphasis on WORK) to help "inspire, propel, motivate, or encourage" someone to find and follow their own dharma (purpose) utilizing tools from yoga philosophy.
Be ready to get honest with yourself and do the work. "...grab a brush and paint a wild and messy canvas." - Marc Holzman
I'll be honest. I've never read a "self-help" book. And I am resistant to this kind of work even though multiple beloved teachers have pointed me in this direction. WRITE IT DOWN. JOURNAL IT. Well, now I have!
I love that the book can be used in different ways and for finding focus for your vision(s). But mostly I LOVED hearing from others who have found and are living their purpose. It is enlightening, encouraging, and inspiring, as someone who is currently in the throws of finding her dharma!
The real work begins when you dig into the workbooks. Here you are faced with writing down truths about yourself (even some ugly ones) and start to dig deep in order to discover your passion, purpose, and vision. However, Stephanie doesn't leave you hanging, she gives you the framework to move beyond your reasons why you can't into how to prioritize your time and resources to make IT happen.
If you are willing to do the work this book will not disappoint!
"I learned to get really naked. I mean totally bare, raw and vulnerable, open to all possibilities and realizations. I learned to accept myself and the dance of life, even the horrible bits." -Gaia
I am still digesting this book and will surely be coming back to it for inspiration and motivation to help me move beyond my fears and toward my purpose. Thank you Stephanie and all the amazing contributors for aiding me on my path!
