A client lost his job but found his purpose in the process.

A person bitten by a shark in Australia became a shark rescuer.

A friend of mine hired the wrong person but said ‘’he’’ taught me a valuable lesson.

It’s not what it seems to be; reality, our life experiences, the meaning we give to it.

Meaning has a powerful influence on us in life and leadership. But without the right context, it can haunt us.

How do you know whether your life experiences are good or bad? How do you know that what you are going through is your biggest pain or your biggest gift? It all depends on context.

The question is whether you stay in your experience or see the context. 

Most people cannot see the context, including myself.

I lost money in my first business. I got divorced. I had to struggle with 7 years of fatigue.

In the moment of struggle, we cannot see the context.

We only understand why we had to go through it months or years later. 

What is missing in life and business is context. Why are we here? What is the purpose of our life? How can we build a career and start a family without understanding the context of why we are here?

No wonder so many of us are lost.

The good thing is, there is a path back home. The question of context to answer is, ‘’where is home?’’. The one who is able to answer that question will have aligned his internal and external worlds.
