As the title of the book implies it is a wake up call that requires discipline. Maisel reminds us if we are seeking meaning in our lives we need to step up to the assignment of adopting certain ideas and engaging in specific practices.
The notion of using a boot camp mentality to attain our potential is genius. It makes so much sense and prepares the reader for the best proactive, no nonsense frame of reference.
Imagine what you will discover and explore in such chapters as “Creating Your Menu of Meaning Opportunities”; “Naming Your Life Purposes”; and “Creating Your Life Purpose Icon and Mantra.”
Why Did Eric Maisel Write This Book?
Unquestionably, there are a lot of books about life purpose, however Life Purpose Boot Camp is different. Eric Maisel shares his reasons for writing this book:.
“Most traditional books on life purpose argue that life purpose is a kind of alignment with the universe. You discern what the universe wants from you—that information passed to you via books like the bible, via gurus or experts, via meditation practices, spirit quests or desert treks, via preachers and their sermons—and then you align yourself with that wisdom and knowledge. Life purpose is seen as something you must seek out and, if you are lucky, find. This is our long-standing vision of life purpose and connects to all sorts of religious, spiritual, and philosophical traditions.
“It is time to change our mind about this and make the profound paradigm shift from seeking meaning to making meaning. If you believe in ideas like evolution and if you have a secular orientation, then it follows that there is no life purpose to find because the universe has zero life purposes in mind for you.
“Nature is not interested in offering you life purposes or in commenting on your life purposes. Rather, life purposes are decisions you make about what you value, what feels meaningful to you, what principles you want to uphold, how you want to represent yourself in life, and how you want to make yourself proud by your efforts and your actions.
“Life Purpose Boot Camp presents a systematic program for doing exactly that: identifying your life purposes, articulating your life purposes, and making plans for holding your life purposes ‘close’ so that you actually get to them on a daily basis. Growing up, you never learned these ideas, skills, or strategies: skills like writing life purpose statements, creating your life purpose icon, starting your day with a morning meaning check-in, and so on.”
“Creative Folks Have Special Problems”
Eric Maisel has devoted his career to helping creative people. He knows what triggers our fears and anxieties. In this book he provides a series of questions to awaken the truth and help us deal with our circumstances. He helps us see what may be currently hidden from our view. He shows us how to upgrade our personalities. He motivates us to take positive action to achieve long term benefits.
Maisel states, “… creative folks have special problems with life purpose for the following two reasons, among many others:
“It is hard to succeed in the arts, so while you may feel like you are following your life purpose by performing or creating you are likely thwarted at every turn and may end up in unfulfilled day jobs, in arduous second careers engaged in to support your creative life, and so on. The challenging nature of the creative life makes it hard to sustain the effort of holding creating or performing as a primary life purpose.
“Creatives tend to put all of their meaning and all of their life purpose into their creative pursuits and end up taking too few other meaning opportunities and pursuing too few other life purposes—for instance missing out on love, intimacy and relationships. It is fine to have a primary life purpose like creating but we really need multiple life purposes, not a single life purpose.”
In Life Purpose Boot Camp Eric Maisel shows us how to identify our multiple life purposes and manage them with the right tools. This book may revolutionize the manner in which you advance through life and achieve your goals. I encourage you to step up to the Life Purpose Boot Camp challenge and reap the benefits!
