At my career pivotal moment, I was a successful lawyer in a leading law firm in the City of London. As a result of a major illness and being told I would never walk again (luckily I got better), I set off on an experiment to find what I was actually here to do on this planet.
I was confronted with two paths, the conform path and the inspiration path. I found that being purpose-led meant trusting in the inspiration path.
I learnt that purpose is not a destination but a way of travelling - by bringing yourself fully to what you do.
At its core it means touching the world with your unique essence. And being willing to excavate and let go of years of conditioned patterns of behaviour that block us from being the leaders we are meant to be.
It hasn't been an easy journey, but definitely a worthwhile one.
Twenty years on, I make the impact I am here to make by supporting leaders, entrepreneurs and change agents to align to their unique purpose and to make the difference they are made for.
So that they can be Positive Energy Leaders at this pivotal time on the planet - who remember who they really are, do what they are here to do and evolve the world being uniquely themselves.
