This age old question that has been asked since the beginning of time …how do I know what my purpose is?
So many people have no idea or worry they’re going to get it wrong, so instead of making the wrong choice, they don’t pursue any choices.
Your purpose is what you say it is, it’s what lights you up and makes you feel happy, that’s it!. No light comes down from the heavens to bestow upon you your purpose in life, you find it by trying different things.
Most people get tripped up because they think they have to make a job out of their purpose and although I’m a big fan of turning your purpose into profit, that’s not always the case. Sometimes your purpose is what gives your life meaning, fulfillment and fun. You’ll get more enjoyment from your life and share your joy with others…that doesn’t sound so bad, right?
So how do we know what our purpose is? Let’s explore by asking yourself these questions:
What do you love to do for hours without getting bored or tired?
What are you naturally good at, what comes easily to you?
What would you do for free?
What did you love to do as a child?
What do people often ask or come to you for?
One of the things that I love to do is reading but I wouldn’t want to make a job out of reading as that would take the fun out of it for me. Another purpose of mine is helping women connect to their purpose, now that is something I can make a business out of and makes my life more fulfilling!
Pay attention to when you feel the most joy and happiness. If you haven’t felt that way in a long time, ask yourself the questions to finding your purpose, they will not steer you wrong.
Let me know in the comments, do you know your purpose or are you in search of it?
