Directional Fitness is having a God-given LifeWork and making a conscious choice to pursue it.
Directional Fitness is moving intentionally and consistently toward the accomplishment of a set of meaningful life goals—life goals with eternal value. No matter what type of impact you hope to make in the world, or whatever legacy you hope to leave behind, you will require directional ﬁtness to achieve it. Today’s decisions and actions will move you closer to or further away from this LifeWork and worthwhile goals.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and ﬁnd me when you seek me with ALL YOUR HEART.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
What’s Your LifeWork Stadium Called?
A LifeWork stadium is where you shine. It’s where you play your game. It’s where you have the ability to work…and to be a star. It’s where you have the great ability to capture the attention and respect of others. You feel at home in your stadium. It is where you belong.
All of these things are fully in play when you are at the peak of your performance in the stadium of your heart. You WILL have passion. You WILL have an afﬁrmation of your personal identity, enthusiasm for the work that lies ahead of you, and an abiding sense of well-being that comes when you know you are doing what you were created to do.
There’s joy in pursuing your LifeWork. You WILL enjoy getting up on Monday mornings and you WILL want to live The Totally Fit Life so that you can continue to pursue your passion and purpose with energy, eagerness and enthusiasm.
PASSION + PURPOSE = FOCUS
PASSION: Within the heart of the person. Makes you “pound the table with excitement.”
PURPOSE: Outside the person— reaching out to others. A dream or goal worth doing.
What Is Your Passion?
People who are passionate about SOMETHING come to The Totally Fit Life System with a real reason to get ﬁt and stay ﬁt. They want to be able to continue to pursue their passion for many years to come, with relentless optimism, high energy and good health.
Passion is what makes you “pound the table with excitement.” When a person is passionate about something his whole heart is fully engaged.
What Is Your Purpose?
Purpose is something that you believe is WORTHY to be accomplished. It is a cause that is outside of yourself; it is reaching out to others through serving them.
Purpose motivates ﬁtness. When you have a meaningful, satisfying, fulﬁlling purpose for your life, you will WANT to have as much energy and health as you can achieve for as long as possible. A life of purpose makes you want to accomplish more, and meet more needs for more people.
Purpose + Passion Creates Focus
An amazing thing happens when you combine purpose and passion. You gain focus. You have a “reason” to live.
Show me a person with a purpose and a passion and I’ll show you a person who can’t wait to get out of bed every morning. That person is energized and excited to do well in life, because they are doing what God has de-signed for them to do and they are doing it with clear focus.
PASSION + PURPOSE = FOCUS
People with focus usually experience two very important by-products:
