This workshops is about creating your true purpose and passion in life which is generally birthed at 10 years old. At some point in your life you will be doing what you loved to do most when you were ten years old, and that will be your true passion and love that makes you happy and fulfilled. Until then you are just doing a job. So, you might as well re-create that little ten year old now so you start feeling happy today.
"While an entrepreneur creates a business, a zentrepreneur creates a business and a life"- Stuart Avery Gold. To set out the path to becoming a Zentrepreneur is to create your "Ten And Zen Life Map".Several years ago I attended a seminar with the renowned speaker and mentor, Jim Rohn. He asked us all what we did for a living, and the responses ranged from chartered accountant to a radio broadcaster. I was the broadcaster. He then asked us what we liked to do most when we were ten years old. Everyone's face lit up as we went around the room recounting our stories. I recalled that when I was ten my father built a makeshift radio station in our den , with an amplifier and records to spin, records like a real DJ. It was there in my make believe radio station, broadcasting to my mother on a nine inch speaker in the kitchen that I found true happiness. With my Mom as my number one fan, I did indeed find my true passion-broadcasting. Rohn's theory was just this; whatever we loved to do when we were ten years old, was what we would wind up doing at some point in our life. This would become our true passion and our greatest enjoyment. Until that time, we were just doing our jobs.That was so brilliant to me that I now call it "Ten and Zen".So here's the big "Ten and Zen" question for you now: What did you love to do when you were ten years old?.This workshop begins with revisiting your life at the age of about ten years old. Your goal here is to recreate your life since then comparing the highlights with what you liked to do when you were ten. See where your ultimate purpose and your true gifts expressed even when you weren't aware of them then. Find the forks in the road of your life where you went in the wrong direction, so you can start creating your Ten and Zen Life Map from this point forward. You may find that there were certain words that you used to use, a mindset that you used to have or actions that used to make you happy. This process may help you to find a personal alignment with something that used to be familiar to you and you somehow misplaced along the way. Find what made you happy then so you can pull it forward into your life for a more robust expression now.
