Born to …?

Wealth Dynamics, the World’s leading entrepreneur profiling test, was created by Roger James Hamilton . Roger is also one of my favourite gurus because he is a communication wizard who has the ability to explain difficult financial concepts in inspiring simple ways. This week he inspired me  in his newsletter by asking me what was I born to do:

Felix Baumgartner has “Born to Fly” tattooed on his forearm.

He made freefall history by skydiving from 24 miles high this month. He also made Youtube history with 8 million viewers watching the livestream. What’s the extraordinary path that Felix took to make his six minutes of history?

Felix began skydiving when he was 16 years old. By 19 he was performing skydiving exhibitions for Red Bull. By 29 he was World BASE jump champion.

Then came the world records: World record BASE jump from Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers in 1999; World record lowest BASE jump from Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer in 1999; First winged freefall crossing the English Channel in 2003; World Record BASE jump from the highest bridge in the world, Millau Bridge, France in 2004; BASE jump form the world’s tallest building, Taipei 101 Tower in 2007…

So his new world records this month were really the result of 27 years of jumping and 13 years of world records. They come after a lifetime of dedication to one mission, the one tattoed on his arm: “Born to Fly”.

What one mission are you on? What is the one burning thing that you are dedicating your life to? What’s the big mission you wear on your sleeve ever day?

Even better, what’s the one thing you’re willing to live for and die for that’s worth the tattoo for when it’s cost you the shirt off your back and the sleeve’s not there?

If I had a tattoo, what would it say? For me, the words that have resonated the loudest are \”Consciousness is liberation\” (although I have not been brave enough to ink it).  It is the power and freedom I received from raising my own levels of awareness that has made the biggest positive impact in my life. And then having the privilege to witness and help raise other peoples levels of awareness. Despite the fact that they’re not the sexiest few words, and maybe not the most eloquent or succinct way to say what I mean, the power in those words is evident.  And it is for sure the mission that I dedicate my life to – what is yours?
