The Science to Designing a Supported & Purposeful Life

The Science to Designing a Supported & Purposeful Life | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher I’ve been watching a lot of Dexter lately. It’s a Showtime TV series that centers on a blood splatter analyst who leads a secret life as a serial killer.

I will admit, this show stresses me out .

It’s not that I’m afraid for Dexter (I mean, his name is the title of the show – I doubt they are going to kill him off any time soon…well, wait that was purely a guess … I’m only on the 4th season… oh no… don’t give it away! Dexter be careful! )

I’m stressed because Dexter is AWFUL at organizing his life. I don’t worry about his crimes… I get stressed when he leaves his child with the nanny for too long. I get stressed when he doesn’t show up to work on time because he was off riding in his boat. Mainly, I get stressed because Dexter has tried to divide his life into perfect little pieces (no pun intended… harharhar ), and he finds his life constantly crashing down around him.

Dexter, buddy, can’t you see the full picture!?

Which makes me think, don’t we all try to do the same? We compartmentalize our lives on a daily basis. We have our family, our friends, our romantic partners, our career, our personal development, our homes and our health. We have these segments in our lives that we must juggle, and sometimes it’s easier to divide them into separate entities. Sometimes it seems easier to handle them that way.

But just like Dexter, therein lies a fatal flaw. Here’s why segmenting your life could cost you your happiness and sanity.

The Smart Guide to Harnessing the Power of Love for Wealth Creation

The Smart Guide to Harnessing the Power of Love for Wealth Creation | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher LOVE .

We seek to share it with others, we relish in it, we are made of it, and we want more of it. To give and receive love – it’s the best feeling in the world.

But what does love mean to you? How do you feel it; how do you show it?

For me, it’s the act of giving and receiving in overdrive . I picture it like this: Remember when you were a kid and you would spin your straw REALLY FAST in your chocolate milk until you created a mini tornado in your cup? Love is just like that. It’s giving and receiving in a continuous circle, until you get so caught up in it, that you BECOME it. You realize that you ARE love; A tornado of pure, positive energy.

That idea is the exact inspiration behind the Soultiply logo. A sacred circle. Giving and receiving all wrapped into one.

I just love that idea!

But I find this interesting…when most people are asked, “What do you love?” oftentimes they name only physical things. Logo with no lines

I love my mother.

I love my brand new puppy.

I love my house.

We know the miraculous power of love, that’s a given. So why don’t we automatically extend these feelings to our non-physical ideas and beliefs in just the same way? Why don’t we make more of an effort to give love to our dreams or to our obstacles? What if we loved the things that don’t yet exist with just as much passion as we do our family and friends? What would become possible?

It Only Takes a Moment: Using the Manageable Moments Exercise to Jump Start your Dreams

It Only Takes a Moment Using the Manageable Moments Exercise to Jump Start your Dreams | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher Have you had an item collecting dust on your to-do list for quite some time?

Honestly, I think there are a few items on mine that have been sitting there for weeks, maybe even months.

Sometimes you get to an item on your to-do list and it’s hard not to look like a deer caught in headlights. You stare at it. And stare at it. And you break out into a cold sweat and stare at it some more.

Because the next task on your to-do list is SO monumental, SO huge and important, that you have no idea how to make it happen.

And it’s easy to get uncomfortable and discouraged, and want to take a nap instead, or watch reruns of Full House, or any number of mindless, “filler” activities that pass the time, allowing yourself to procrastinate on your dreams.

And then, months from now, when you are still feeling stuck, you start to feel dejected because you are not seeing actual progress and your dream still feels SO FAR AWAY.

Daydreaming is nice, but living a dream feels SO MUCH BETTER.

I’ve been there my friend.

The guilt that manifests from inaction use to consume me. I felt like I was wasting time, like precious time was slipping away from me every moment I spent feeling lost on how to accomplish my dreams.

And that’s when it hit me.

Every time I pull up my calendar, or add a new thing to my to-do list, I’m essentially searching for the most effective use of my TIME. I was making the decision on how I wanted to spend my MOMENTS on earth.

Time is just a series of moments.

Something can take a year to accomplish or a minute – but no matter the time frame, they are both comprised of singular moments, one after one, that continue to add up until the project is complete.

And as long as you fill each moment to the brim with inspired activity, you will start to see change.

Decades or years sound very scary sometimes. But moments – those are easy! We can handle moments.

In order to create the change you crave in your life, you must break down every big dream into MANAGEABLE MOMENTS.
