Are you ready to discover it?
Have you decided what your purpose is?
My mentor always said you don't decide it, you discover it.
Everything in nature is always expanding or evolving towards fulfillment.
Whether it be a bee, flower, tree, or human.
Each person has his or her own unique purpose. And it’s up to the individual to discover what that purpose is.
The problem is we get so caught up and bogged down with our daily activities and obligations that our awareness of our own unique life purpose is easily lost in the shuffle.
When you don’t know your purpose, however, there are consequences. You may have a continuing sense of frustration. Or you might feel like you’re “off-track” or out of sync with your inner self.
Let's not get confused
Some people confuse their goals and desires with the life purpose. But there’s a distinction.
Over your lifetime, you’ll have a series of desires and goals. However, your purpose is deeper and more permanent than any goal. It’s your reason for living.
Let’s say you’ve always wanted to write a book and, one day, you set a goal to do so. The thought of it excites you because you want to make money, be well-known, change people’s lives, or build a legacy.
Even though writing a book is an amazing accomplishment, it doesn’t give you a reason to stay alive. That is what a purpose does. It gives you a reason to get up in the morning, every day of your life.
Ready, Set, Action!
I know it’s not always easy to think your way into finding your life purpose. If you’re too much “in your head,” you may have to act your way into it.
The more we act, the more we get clear on things. So, while you’re working on discovering your purpose, be sure to do whatever you’re currently doing the best you can. Give it all that you’ve got.
Instead of worrying about whether something will work out, if you should try something, or if you can make money at it, remember what Nike said: just do it!
Start trying new things to see where they take you.
The experience of doing a great job or trying something new is its own reward. Clarity comes through the process of exploring and seeing what works and what doesn’t.
You won't know how to do a thing, until you do the thing.... Take Action!
Time is precious
Sometimes people present ideas or opportunities to you. If you aren't at all interested, don't investigate them. It’s a waste of your limited time.
However, when you do feel a pull towards an activity, idea, or opportunity that involves doing something you love, pursue it fully and vigorously. Then, pay attention to the feedback your actions give you along the way.
Infuse all your actions with love for what you’re engaging with. That includes all the people you interact with too.
If you consciously infuse your thoughts, emotions and behavior with positive, life-affirming energy, it will be easier for you to see your true purpose with greater certainty.
Where does your journey take you?
I find that people who set out to find their "north star" and discover their life purpose live their life in service and bliss.
They recognize that they are hard-wired to do something very well and that talent, skill, or ability will blossom when they discover it.
Are you heading toward your "north star?"
