What you are about to listen to is a recording of Mohamed Tohami’s P.A.S. Technique for
finding your life’s purpose. He did this with one our MasterMind groups and the results were fantastic. You’re going to love it! How exciting!
“What is my purpose?” You’re only one hour away from discovering your life’s purpose.
You will need to use this PDF during the course.
Here’s to discovering and living your life’s purpose!
Here’s the transcription:
Greg: Today, we have a great speaker and a friend as well, Mohammed Tohami. He is a best-selling author and the author of the “P.A.S techniques”. Which is the easiest way to find purpose in life. He is known with his series of interviews of successful people.
PS: He has recorded over 150 interviews.
I am so excited to have him here. Well, I already know what is my purpose but I am so excited because I know that there is more.
So let’s get started and let Mr. Tohami expand and explore. So go ahead Tohami it is all yours.
Tohami: Thank you so much Greg, I am so excited to be with you today. Just for your information, here in Egypt is 4:00 Am and I have just woke up and it is so good to coach at this time. I just want to know if you all have the P.A.S Techniques exercise sheet. So let me give you a foundation about what is the P.A.S Techniques. P.A.S is an acronym, P stands for Passion, A for Advantage and S for Solution. And I consider those three are the purposes of living. Each sheet that you have has one of these and we are going to cover it so that at the end we will have a very clear and concise purpose. Are you excited about this?
Tohami: So let’s start with the first sheet which is Passion. The first small exercise that you are going to do is that I want you to mark all the feelings of interest to you. And you have five minutes to do so. Okay?
Greg: Go ahead and pose the podcast and take your time.
Tohami: The five minutes are over so are you all done?
Tohami: So the next thing we are going to do is a little interesting game. I want you to imagine that the items you have chosen are in the form of a list. For example, let’s say that you are interested in cooking, traveling, history… etc. So you are going to compare cooking with travel, which one you like and you are passionate about more? So when it is travel, then travel wins and cooking loses. Then take travel and compare it with history, the one which stays wins. So based on this game, you will find out what is your great purpose that you cannot live without.
Now, prepare your list of the things that you like most then compare one item with the other and define which one wins and which one loses. At the end, you’ll come up with one dominant passion.
Tohami: This doesn’t mean that you have to neglect all the other secondary passions from your life, it is just that you will be focusing on the dominant passion that will lead your life and the other passions with it as well.
So take your five minutes to complete this game.
Greg: I think what makes it so difficult for us to define a passion is that we have so many interests and so many likes.
Rachel: Here’s my list: writing, personal transformation, dreams, and travel.
Tohami: So we have personal transformation and dreams which we find that they are very much related. Therefore, you are left with writing and travel. So let me ask you. Would you like to have a business about writing and write about traveling, self-transformation and everything else you want, or would you like to travel the world and write about your traveling experience and how you see people transform their lives from culture to culture?
Rachel: I pick writing!
Greg: Oh! That’s big.
Tohami: If you are able now to define your dominant passion, we are ready to move on to the advantage part of the game. As you can see in the PDF sheet, you will find fields of interest, just mark the things that you are good at. Except the green box. And of course, if you are good at other things that are not listed here, feel free to add them as well. So take three minutes to complete this one.
We are done with the three minutes guys. And here comes the interesting part. In the green box, I claim, based on 9 years of purpose life changing experience, that anyone can have one dominant advantage in one of five areas (These areas are represented on the green box). So let me explain what each area means so that you can pick up your dominant advantage.
Gathering and sharing information: anything that is related information comes under this category.
Creativity and imagination: anything that is related to visualization comes under this category.
People: the ability to work in teams or to work with new people and strangers. And the ability to understand people and gain their trust.
Tangibles: the ability to work with your hands and create things. Basically, anything that you like to do with your own hands.
Implementation: the knowledge of implementing things and getting them done.
Of course, you might be good at more than one of them, but we are again looking for the dominant advantage. And you can find it easily by doing one of two things. You can either look at the item that you have chosen in the first exercise and just classify them as you see relevant and then count. The one that has more advantages will automatically be your dominant advantage. The second way is to look at the items that you have marked and see what’s the average and define the dominant advantage that can embrace most of them.
Take a couple of minutes to decide what’s your dominant advantage.
Rachel: I can’t decide which one I’ll pick actually!
Greg: This is awesome! I like seeing this big picture of all the things I like. I love taking the whole picture of what I like and of who I am.
Rachel: So, what did you pick?
Greg: Gathering and sharing information.
Rachel: No wrong! It must be people.
Tohami: Mine was gathering and sharing information too. Although people who know me said that I am good at people but for me, I inspire and move people by the information I already have. That’s why I totally understand why Greg chose gathering and sharing information.
Greg: I love to meet strangers and talk to people but behind it as I looked at all the things I selected, I found that I am so passioned about learning about them and sharing with them what I learned.
Rachel: Yeah! I think your ability to motivate and inspire comes from all the gathering of information you’ve done for so long.
Tohami: Are you all done? If you are, please share with us.
Rachel: Gathering and sharing information.
Woman 1: Mine is definitely people.
Man: Mine is implementation.
Woman 2: I will say creativity and imagination.
Rachel: For me, what helped me decide, even though I like photography and blogging, but to me, it’s less creative than it is actually gathering things and then sharing them.
Tohami: Okay, now let’s move to the final part. It is the easiest one and it is dynamic as well, which means that it can change over time.
Now, you will find items in the white boxes which present ways of delivering solutions. So by dynamic, I mean that the way you deliver a solution can change but still doesn’t do any damage. So pick one thing that you see relevant for you.
Greg: For me, I am going to go with inspire, motivate and counsel.
Tohami: So let’s move to the other boxes, the orange ones which represent the circle of influence. Because to live on purpose you don’t have necessary to change the world. So you are the one who can determine your desire of influence. Would you like to impact a close or a wide circle? The choice is yours. And again it’s dynamic which means that it can start small and then go big and bigger. So just pick one now that you like to have your impact on and then in the future you may want to upgrade it.
Finally, we will come to the most interesting part. From my experience, I claim that we have four solutions that we can deliver to people. These four solutions are represented in the green box.
Live better: which is anything related to the quality of life.
Connect better: anything that is related to relationships.
Perform better: anything related to performing a task in an easier faster way.
Be better: how to become a better version of yourself.
So choose between these four solutions where would you fit most. Here’s the question: in which category you want your problems to be solved?
Tohami: Next, you will use this statement to define your purpose in life.
Greg: my purpose in life is to use my gathering and sharing information advantage driven by my passion for personal transformation to help a wide circle of people be better.
Man: My purpose in life is to use my implementation advantage driven by my passion for web development to help a close circle of people live better.
Woman 1: My purpose in life is to use my people advantage driven by my passion for cooking to help a wide circle of people live better.
Tohami: My purpose in life is to use my gathering and sharing information advantage driven my passion for success and motivation to help an open circle of people be better.
Greg: Just out of curiosity, how do you define an open circle?
Tohami: That’s the whole world.
I think we are done at the moment and I am so glad to be with you today and I hope that you find this technique useful.
Greg: Thank you so much this was awesome.
Rachel: Yes, very helpful and very concrete.
Tohami: Thank you so much I am so glad to hear that.
