I recently started to help some friends develop goals for their lives, and begin the process of making them a reality. What I discovered though is that goals only make sense when you know what your purpose is. If you don’t know WHAT you want to do with your life, then the motivation will not be there to actually follow through on any goals.
Knowing your Purpose is the foundation to attaining fulfillment and happiness. Once you figure out WHAT, then you can move on to HOW. It’s a process, and it’s one that I want to help you through.
The FIRST step to having clarity on your life purpose is to understand how the beliefs of your parents, friends and society have influenced you. And to distinguish whether these beliefs help you grow or whether they are holding you back.
Then, you have to look at your PASSIONS and interests. What makes your heart beat faster? What makes your eyes light up?
TALENTS and skills are the next point of analysis. Are you naturally skilled at something? What talents have you developed throughout your life? What’s important to remember though is that just because you’re good at something does not mean it’s a part of your purpose. I was always good at Math in school, but it’s not something I want to spend the rest of my life doing.
Understanding your PERSONALITY type is the next step. When you better understand who you are, you can then unlock what your natural gifts are, your strengths and the type of people that you need to surround yourself with in order to succeed.
Taking time to look back on your life EXPERIENCES may help you discover some forgotten truths. They may also shed light on what you were made to do.
COINCIDENCES or seemingly random events will be the next focus. Sometimes, these unexplainable occurrences hold clues to where your life is headed.
Thinking about your own BELIEFS that hold you back, and creating new ones that will EMPOWER you comes next. “It’s too hard, I have no time, I’m too old” are common beliefs many people hold that limit them and create a barrier to fulfillment.
Once you have taken all of these steps, it will be time to reflect on everything you’ve learned and write down your life purpose.
Are you ready to discover your life purpose? Learn how to take advantage of your natural talents, embrace your passions, understand your personality and create beliefs that will empower you to live a fulfilling life. I want you to find meaning and joy in this life. I want you to pursue your dreams and to believe that they are possible. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.
