How to Write a Personal Destiny Statement in 3 Steps

Published

We all have a God-given destiny to fulfill that we were each born with. I personally believe it is buried deep down within us. The number one secret to success is to let it emerge out of you and release it to the world. What is my destiny you may ask? It is the thing you would regret not doing before leaving Planet Earth.

In the book, Five Regrets of the Dying, Bonnie Ware states one of the top five regrets is, “I wish I had the courage to live a life that was true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” We each have a purposeful, powerful and passionate dream we were born with. Sometimes it gets shoved aside out of fear or resistance to ourselves.

You can’t be afraid to own it and declare it to the world. Sometimes you feel you’re not worthy or that you could never manifest it. Resistance to our inner greatness is debilitating. It keeps you safe and comfortable with your dreams stuffed down inside you.

Nothing helps more than writing out your personal life mission in one intentional statement. Make the vision plain and write it on the wall so you can run with it. An example of a famous person’s mission statement is Oprah Winfrey. 

Years before she was famous, she wrote the following vision statement. “To be a teacher. And to be known for inspiring my students to be more than they thought they could be.” When she first wrote this, she never dreamed it would be on TV. Sometimes your vision forces you to step out and up into something greater than your very being.

Once you have your destiny statement in front of you, it clarifies your vision. It defines what you will give your time and attention to. Nothing is as empowering and impactful as a personal destiny statement.

Here are three steps to getting started today:

1. Define your top talents and strengths

Make a list of your top traits and see if those might become part of your destiny statement. What does everyone say about you? What have you loved doing since you were 5 years old? What are you naturally good at doing? What do people say about you over and over? What have you been denying about yourself for years?

“Focus on your work. Do what you’re great at. Don’t compare yourself to others and or waste time criticizing the lives and work of others. Do what matters most to you and make a difference doing that.” – Germany Kent

2. Write out what you want to accomplish in one statement

Ask yourself what you want to be remembered for? What do you most dream of accomplishing in your lifetime? If you had no limits, restraints, and nothing holding you back, what would you go for? If money weren’t a factor, what would you ultimately pursue?

You will only live a lesser version of your life, full of story and why you couldn’t have your one true dream if you don’t get this real with yourself. Dig deep inside your core to reveal your one authentic truth. 

You must have a respect for your calling. You were born with it after all and it is a talent given to you as an investment. What will you do with your investment? If you sow a seed, you will reap a great harvest. Great world leaders invested in themselves, took huge risks and became who they were born to be even after suffering much adversity.

Let me share with you my destiny statement written in three different ways. I have always wanted to be a motivational speaker on a huge level. When I am totally authentic with myself it is my highest dream.

“To use my gifts of courage, motivation and words to inspire the masses to transform their lives, take back their worst fears and fail forward.”

“To use my talents of talk, encouragement and my life story of overcoming fear to empower others to lead the best life they can ever imagine, championing their destiny and overcoming the worst in life to create the best most beautiful outcomes.”

“To create connections, conversations that release a chain reaction in others, an explosion of growth where they completely fall in love with their lives and are compelled to fulfill their destiny.”

3. Once you have your vision secured, then you need to post it on the wall

Your subconscious brain will actually think of ways to manifest your vision. Once you put it out there, then you can begin to manifest it. Recognize that fulfilling your destiny will cost you everything you have in life. On the flip side you must ask yourself what will it cost you to not fulfill your destiny?

“You must decide if you are going to rob the world or bless it with the rich, valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you.” – Myles Munroe 

We all were born with richness in our soul; often untapped potential locked away. Release it, activate it and set it free. The gifts and talents you were born with were never for you but for everyone around you in life. When you give them away, life and all its glory will come back to you in its highest measure.

What’s your personal destiny statement? Share it with us! We’d love to hear it.

Failing is More Important Than Succeeding

Failure is an integral part of life as life is incomplete without failures.

People often consider failure a stigma.  Society often doesn’t respect the people who failed and avoids and criticizes their actions. Failure is an integral part of life as life is incomplete without failures. Not to have endeavored is worse than failing in life as at some stage of your life you regret not having tried in your life.  (more…)

5 Indicators of Unresolved Attachment Trauma

Published

on

Emotional Attachment Trauma

Trauma caused during specific stages of a child’s development, known as attachment trauma, can have lasting effects on a person’s sense of safety, security, predictability, and trust. This type of trauma is often the result of abuse, neglect, or inconsistent care from a primary caregiver.

Individuals who have not fully processed attachment trauma may display similar patterns of behavior and physical or psychological symptoms that negatively impact their adult lives, including the choices they make in relationships and business.

Unfortunately, many people may not even be aware that they are struggling with trauma. Research estimates that 6% of the population will experience PTSD in their lifetime, with a majority of males and females having experienced significant trauma.

Unresolved attachment trauma can significantly impair the overall quality of a person’s life, including their ability to form healthy relationships and make positive choices for themselves. One well-known effect of unhealed attachment trauma is the compulsion to repeat past wounds by unconsciously selecting romantic partners who trigger their developmental trauma.

However, there are other less recognized but equally detrimental signs of unprocessed developmental trauma.

 

Five possible indications of unresolved attachment trauma are:

 

1.  Unconscious Sabotage

Self-sabotage is a common pattern among individuals with unprocessed attachment trauma. This cycle often begins with hurting others, which is then followed by hurting oneself. It is also common for those with attachment trauma to have heightened emotional sensitivity, which can trigger this cycle.

This pattern can manifest in lashing out, shutting down, or impulsive behavior that leads to feelings of guilt, shame, and self-loathing.

Many people with attachment trauma are not aware of their wounds and operate on survival mode, unconsciously testing or challenging the emotional investment of those around them, and pushing them away out of self-preservation and fear of abandonment.

This can lead to a pattern of making poor choices for themselves based on impulsivity.

 

2. Persistent Pain

 
Chronic pain is a common symptom that can stem from early trauma. Studies have shown a connection between physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, headaches, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, muscle aches, back pain, chest pain, and chronic fatigue with the aftermath of chronic developmental trauma, particularly physical abuse.
 
Research has found that individuals with insecure attachment styles, such as anxious, avoidant, or disorganized, have a higher incidence of somatic symptoms and a history of physical and emotional abuse in childhood compared to those with a secure attachment style.
 
 

3. Behaviors That Block Out Trauma

 
Trauma blocking practises are used to avoid the pain and memories connected with traumatic events.
 
Emotional numbing, avoidance, and escape via briefly pleasurable activities that distract from terrible memories or suffering are common examples. Unfortunately, this escape habit stops people from successfully processing and recovering from their trauma.
 
Furthermore, when the pain resurfaces, more and more diversions are necessary to continue ignoring it. This can be seen in compulsive behaviours such as drug or alcohol addiction, emotional eating, numbing oneself through relationships, workaholism, excessive or dangerous exercise routines, compulsive internet or technology use, or any other compulsive behaviour used to distract yoursef from intrusive thoughts and emotions.
 
These actions have the potential to prolong a cycle of avoidance and repression, preventing persons from healing and progressing.
 

4. A strong need for control

 
It’s understandable that some people may struggle with control issues in their adult lives, especially if they felt helpless or vulnerable during their childhood.
 
This can happen if someone had an overbearing caregiver who didn’t let them make their own choices, expected too much from them, or didn’t take care of them properly. As adults, they might try to control everything in their life to feel more in control and less anxious or scared. This might be because they didn’t feel like they had control over their life when they were a child.
 
It’s important to remember that everyone’s experiences are different and it’s okay to seek help if you’re struggling with control issues.
 
 

5. Psychological Symptoms That Are Not Explained

 
Individuals with a history of developmental trauma may experience a range of psychological symptoms, including obsessive-compulsive behavior, intense mood swings, irritability, anger, depression, emotional numbing, or severe anxiety.
 
These symptoms can vary in intensity and may occur intermittently throughout the day. People with this type of trauma may attempt to “distract” themselves from these symptoms by denying or rationalizing them, or may resort to substance abuse or behavioral addictions as coping mechanisms. This can be a maladaptive way of trying to numb their symptoms.
 
 

What to do next if you’re suffering from emotional attachment trauma?

 
Everyone’s experience of healing from trauma is unique. It’s important to be aware of whether you have experienced childhood developmental trauma and how it may be affecting your relationships as an adult. Sometimes, the effects of trauma can be overwhelming and we may try to push them away or avoid them.
 
If you notice that you’re engaging in these behaviors, it’s important to seek help from a trauma therapist who can support you on your healing journey. Remember, you’re not alone and it’s never too late to start healing.
 

There are several ways that people can work to overcome emotional attachment trauma:

  1. Therapy: One of the most effective ways to overcome emotional attachment trauma is through therapy. A therapist can help you process your experiences, understand the impact of your trauma on your life, and develop coping strategies to manage symptoms.
  2. Support groups: Joining a support group of people who have had similar experiences can be a great way to find validation, empathy, and a sense of community.
  3. Mindfulness practices: Mindfulness practices such as meditation, pilates, prayer time with God or journaling can help you become more aware of your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, and develop a sense of spiritual connection and self-regulation.
  4. Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT): This is a type of therapy that is specifically designed to help individuals process and recover from traumatic events.
  5. Building a safety net: Building a support system of people you trust, who are there for you when you need them, can help you feel more secure and safe in your life.

It’s important to remember that healing from emotional attachment trauma is a process and it may take time. It’s also important to find a therapist who is experienced in treating trauma, who you feel comfortable talking with, and who can help you develop a personalized treatment plan.
