BREAK THROUGH YOUR COMFORT ZONE

If you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always got.

Change is a process and not a once-off event.

We have all heard these slogans. T he problem is that they have become clichés and the knowhow (to do so) seem to be out of our reach. Everybody wants to change the world but few remember that the change must start with themselves.

LIFE AS WE KNOW IT

Everyday life is a challenge. Growing up happens automatically and in doing so we follow the patterns set out by society. We learn quickly that it is every man and woman for themselves but then we have to do it committed to a working team. We have to work to pay the bills and while doing so we have to endure much physical and emotional discomfort. We get bombarded by stories of successful people.  Pressure is the order of the day. We grow up believing that this way of life is the norm and that we need to adapt to it to fit in. We struggle to cope and sadly that leads us to take drastic measures, sometimes with heartbreaking results.  It becomes a losing game, a life of survival.

We lose our identity and revert to past experiences. To make things worse, there are so many books and articles written on change that we fall between the cracks. It becomes difficult to move forward and then we experience a sense of being stuck.

DISCOVERING WHO YOU ARE

Zig Ziglar writes in his book “Over the Top” that we should move from survival to stability, from stability to success, from success to significance. You can only discover true significance when you have discovered your true purpose. By living out your dreams and passions you find purpose.

There are so many people, sadly, who have no dream, no vision or goal. They sit in a class with subjects that they do not have any interest in because they have no idea what they want to become one day. Finding your purpose and passion will give direction to your life. Your happiness evolves around your purpose and goals in life, the centre of your vision.

You will discover that life is bigger than just talents. We all have unique gifts and abilities that not only will fulfil our dreams but will influence the societies we live in. So much emphasis is placed on talents like drawing, singing, dancing and acting, just to mention a few, that we do not discover and develop gifts like; taking care of, the ability to show mercy and compassion, or to serve others. When our focus shifts to the needs of others, we get to live beyond.

The sooner you discover your true purpose and passion, the sooner you will find meaning and fulfilment.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” – John F. Kennedy

WHY AGAPEDO

Agapedo is a network of role players who interact with the individual who forms the basis of companies and teams. Agapedo is a platform from where companies can interact with people and where they then can explore possibilities in their field of expertise. Agapedo becomes the link that will help the individual to discover his/her true passion that will help with the establishment of their mission and in return help them to discover their vocation and that will set them up to search and find their profession. This will ultimately lead to the discovering of the individual’s true PURPOSE.

Agapedo is a virtual company, it is not bound by a specific building or city, but will interact when and where the need arises.

Our main aim is to create a platform where the individual gets into contact with these role players. The role players will bring their knowledge and expertise to a certain group of people and meet them in their environment. This will be done in a cost-effective manner that will not only benefit the individual but also help the growth of the group from where the individual comes.

THE FUNDAMENTAL TOOLS USED BY AGAPEDO

PRIMARY:

The first fundamental tool is developing social and emotional abilities. This will enrich and empower the individual to grow and prosper in his/her field of interest and passion.

The second fundamental tool is the discovery of the individuals’ unique passions which lead them to unleash their inner ability to pursue their purpose.

The third fundamental tool is the managing of what was discovered and developed and helps with the day-to-day implementation of the newly-discovered abilities and make them become second nature.
