I recently read an excellent book called, Project Life by my new acquaintance, Daljeet Singh. He is a Demartini trained coach and educator based in London, who I was introduced to by my new friend in Ottawa. The power of connections!

In the book, Daljeet talks about the importance of aligning with your greatest cause, for the greatest rewards in life. If you can align your vocation with your cause; even better.

This really got me thinking. I abhor the abuse of children and animals. I am mindful of the damage we are doing to mother earth and the obesity epidemic is extremely worrying.

My husband and I aren’t grand philanthropists, however we do give where we can.

So, as you can probably imagine, I immediately defaulted to thoughts like:

~ I’m not doing enough;

~ I don’t really know what my great cause is;

~ This must be my ‘problem’!

Ah, the joys of old subconscious conditioning!

Therefore, it won’t come as a surprise to you that on a recent phone call with Daljeet, this was the first point I raised in our conversation.

Daljeet’s response was powerful, which is why I wanted to share it with you. He explained that it’s actually important to keep your ‘great cause’ broad and non-specific, so that you have ample and unconstrained opportunity to fulfil on it.

Daljeet wrote Project Life, partly as an ode to his 14 year old self. He shared everything he wish he’d known as a young man in the hope that it could serve others in their quest to master their lives. Daljeet considers his greatest cause teaching and educating, so he can fulfil on his calling in a myriad of ways, not just in his role as a corporate consultant.

Powerful, right? Well, I thought so.

I realised that I too, am a teacher and an educator. So, whether it’s writing a blog, posting on social media, sharing my knowledge with friends or speaking on stage at an event – I am fulfilling on my ‘great cause’.

That is incredibly empowering because it’s not attached to a dollar figure and it’s not requiring me to go out and serve soup to homeless people, when I’m already juggling a baby and a business at home.

So, with this in mind, what is your ‘great cause’? What do you stand for? What is your truth?

Just by serving and sharing as much of yourself as you possibly can (with healthy boundaries, of course!) you are already fulfilling on something profoundly great and inspiring in this world.

If you feel called to make your mark on this world and would like to amplify and accelerate your ‘great cause’ then, let’s have a chat and see whether coaching is the right fit for you. ~ Sally G X

  1. I couldn’t resist commenting. Well written!

  2. I am sure this piece of writing has touched all the internet people, its really really good article on building up new website.

  3. I used to be able to find good advice from your blog articles.

  4. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

      Thank you for taking the time to comment. In answer to your question, if my writing’s not in flow, I usually take some time to close my eyes, focus on my breath and get present to what I love about my life. That usually connects me into my heart and allows me to write freely. In regards to starting an article, I always start with the title and identify 3-5 points I want to make. I build my article around this. Finally, if you have a great idea about an article, make sure you write it down straight away, so you don’t forget. Ideas don’t always come at the most opportune time! I hope that helps! Cheers, Sally G

  5. You could definitely see your expertise in the article you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart.
