As we covered last week, we’re all born with a distinctive Purpose; and that the identification and pursuit of that Purpose are the best things you can do in order to live a fulfilling, happy life.
Today, we’re going to talk about how to identify your Purpose and then to create a Purpose Statement, which will become a road map to guide you through life.
What do you love to do?
First of all, you need to mentally explore the things you already love to do and always come easily to you…
Think about those things… What do you love to do most? What are those things that, when you’re doing them, time seems to stop?
It might be something you work hard to develop into a talent, but that it felt natural to you, like going down a water slide.
Make a list of all that comes to your mind and see what they all have in common.
1. What qualities do you love expressing?
Now, ask yourself, what are two values that you most enjoy expressing in the world?Mines are Courage and Integrity; what are yours? Remember to write them down.
2. In what way do you express them?
Once you have those two identified, what are two ways in which you enjoy expressing them? Mine are Inspiring and empowering others.
Write down yours now.
3. What does a “perfect world” look like to you?
Finally, take a moment now to describe what a “perfect world” would look like to you. How is everyone relating to each other? What are they doing on a daily basis?
For me, in a perfect world, people will be living the higher version of themselves; everyone is doing what they love most, and sharing it with others.
Write down your own description now, because the next step is to combine all the previous steps to create your Life Purpose Statement.
Create your Life Purpose Statement
Ok, now take a moment to combine the 3 points into one single statement that will start to outline your Purpose.
I wrote down my Purpose here. Use it as a guideline to create yours:
My Life Purpose is to inspire and empower (2) people to live the higher version of themselves (3), in a context of courage and integrity (1).
Every time I’m living it, I feel like I’m “in the zone”; I love every minute of it. I could spend 8 hours straight and it feels like playing! Don’t get me wrong, work and effort are in did a requirement, but suffering is not. If you are stressed and suffering, you’re probably living your life off-course; off-purpose, we could say.
Create your Life Purpose Statement and start guiding your life to a more satisfying experience.
See you next week.
