How to Find and Stay in the LQ Zone: What is your Major Definite Purpose?
In our quest to figure out how to stay in the LQ Zone, (Life Quality Zone) that magical place where we have harmony in all aspects of our lives, where we have life fulfilling balance…where we are “in the ZONE”, the “LQ ZONE”, having clarity of purpose can help a lot.
It is always challenging to get into the LQ Zone and then even more challenging to stay in the LQ Zone.
One negative thought, one hurtful criticism, one minor injury can easily cast us out of the LQ Zone….
So how to combat these negative thoughts, hurtful criticisms or minor injuries? We can simply ignore them…or we can remember what our main purpose in our life is…as Napoleon Hill, the pioneering author of the science of success wrote in Think and Grow Rich, we need to know our Major Definite Purpose….what is the main goal in our life?
The Major Definite Purpose needs to be something which you can get passionate about…something which, when you are cast out of the LQ Zone, you can review in your mind and suddenly that negative thought, hurtful criticism or minor injury seems….well…totally minor and not worth thinking about.
Thinking about your Major Definite Purpose makes you excited about life again, about moving forward to achieving your goals, putting you in the mindset that all life’s challenges are simply presenting you opportunities of equal or greater value IF you are actively looking for them.
Major Definite Purposes will evolve during your life stages. And there will be many other goals or “purposes” which are a subset of the Major Definite Purpose.
For example, when I was building businesses in Japan, my Major Definite Purpose was to help improve relations between Japanese and Americans. I did that by setting up a private school chain where American teachers taught English as well as American culture to Japanese students, and in turn the teachers learned Japanese and about Japanese culture.
I continued to do this when I returned to the United States to co-found SakeOne, a premium sake brewery which introduced Americans to the joys of premium chilled sake and Japanese culture…
Moving to Hilo, Hawaii in 2002, my Major Definite Purpose changed to helping people become LQ Business owners on Hawaii Island. This led to setting up a business brokerage business which helps people become LQ Business owners on Hawaii Island.
Now, 10 years later, my Major Definite Purpose is to help people find and stay in their LQ Zone…to learn how to create their own LQ Zone, a magical place where they have harmony in all aspects of their lives…
Having a Major Definite Purpose will give you “clarity of purpose”, it will give you “clarity about what actions to take in your life” and help you find and stay in the LQ Zone.
Do you have a Major Definite Purpose in your life? If not, I would suggest reading the recently revised “Think and Grow Rich, Revised and Updated for the 21st Century” by Napoleon Hill.
I have read it many times…and it was a required text for my University of Hilo Hawaii Business 101 classes. A quick but profound read. Written in 1937 it guides you to how to create the Major Definite Purpose in your life so that you can have clarity of purpose.
Once you have that clarity of purpose, it is AMAZING how quickly you attract the resources to help you attain that purpose. But you have to let “the force” as well as people you meet know what your goal is so that they can help you achieve it.
I recently wanted to get better clarity of purpose in my life and found that by rereading Think and Grow Rich it instantly helped me better see my way in life…it gave me much better clarity of purpose…
And it definitely helps keep me in the LQ Zone!
