Wake-Up Calls!

The Big 7 Questions:

By: Paulette Kouffman Sherman

Sometimes it takes an extreme wake-up call to make you get crystal clear about your life purpose. I was on the right track, but for me, my Zen stick was getting breast cancer. For others it’s a job loss, divorce or the death of a loved one.

Don’t wait for something to jolt you awake. Ask yourself these big 7 questions today:

Why am I here?

Am I doing what I love and using my gifts?

Am I spreading love?

What do I want to create while I’m here?

What fears and excuses am I allowing to hold me back?

How do I want to leave this world?

What is my legacy?


Ask yourself these questions today and take one step in the direction of your dreams.


You may have decided the doors are closed to you but this is never true. Helen Keller once said,


When one door of happiness closes, another one opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”


For example, you may have been rejected by publishers, directors, galleries or record studios.


Oprah Winfrey says that mistakes are just the universe’s way of moving us in another direction. So, don’t give up! Today it’s easy to self-publish, air your songs, poems and even films by yourself.


This world needs your love, wisdom and truth, so as Wayne Bennett once said,

Don’t die with the music in you!’


I know you can do it!
