Have you ever felt like you’re searching for something but can’t quite figure out what it is? You’re not alone. Perhaps you feel aimless and a little lost in your direction. What might be behind this? Uncovering your life purpose is a journey of self-discovery that can bring greater focus and clarity to your life. So where does it begin? I know this can sound a little daunting and perhaps something you really are unsure of where to begin. So, here are some steps that can help.
Self-reflection is an important and integral part of this process. Take the time to ask yourself: What are my values? What makes me truly happy? When do I feel the most fulfilled? These questions will help you identify the things that are most important to you and lead you to a deeper understanding about yourself and your life purpose. It’s important not to rush this and really take time to find out what’s behind the curtain that is you. Once, again this can feel a little self-revealing to ask yourself these big questions and it is natural for it to be met with some resistance. A lot of people that I coach and I leave them with this task, this is where they get stuck, Something always comes up and they never get around to completing the exercise. So, what incentives can you use that will ensure you make it past this step?
The benefit of discovering your life purpose extends beyond just yourself. By knowing who you are, what makes you tick, and what drives you forward, it’s easier to show up in meaningful ways for the people in your life. How does it feel when you meet someone who is excited and passionate about what they do in their lives? The energy can be quite infectious. Seeing their eyes light up when they talk about what they are doing seems thrilling. Imagine living around someone like that. Imagine that being you. Excited to get up in the morning, rather than hiding under the duvet, wishing it was the weekend rather than a Monday morning. Your relationships will be totally different when you are buzzing from your day-to-day experiences. When we are happy with ourselves we generally resonate a good vibration that other people feel and want to be around.
The right time to uncover your life purpose is now! Don’t wait until everything else in life is perfect – because it never will be – start exploring today! Make sure to seek out resources, ask questions, seek advice from trusted people, and be open-minded as you move forward on this journey of self-discovery. It all starts with the first step, are you ready to take it?
