If you seek true fulfillment, happiness, peace of mind and contentment in life, then finding your PURPOSE is critical.
Many of our coaching clients come to us confused and with a burning desire to find their reason for existence.
How do you know what you’re created for?
It might sound like a cliche, but finding one’s purpose stems from discovering oneself. You cannot find your purpose outside of your authentic self or true identity.
Here are few questions you can ask yourself while searching within:
1. Who am I?
2. What differentiates me from others?
3. What are my values?
4. What is my passion?
5. What is my vision?
After working with dozens of clients, I have come to believe that each of us is born with a unique life purpose. The day we identify and begin to consciously follow this purpose is perhaps the second most important day in our lives.
For some of us, our purpose and passion in life is obvious and clear. We’re born with a set of talents that leads us directly to WHO we are and what our life’s purpose is.
For many of us? Not so simple.
Here are few tips to finding self and discovering your purpose:
1. Explore your passion. Your purpose is not something you need to make up; it’s already there. You have to uncover it by asking some questions like:
* What do you love to do?
* What comes easily to you?
* What are you skilled at?
* What drives, inspires or motivates you?
These questions could be pointers to what you’re passionate about and inevitable what your life’s purpose is.
2. Create a brief statement.
Take a moment and write a brief description of what you’re passionate about and what provides you with a sense of purpose. For us at The Work-Life Organisation Global Ltd, ‘Empowering People, Transforming the World of Work’ is our purpose statement.
3. Find out who you want to serve. We are passionate about helping busy career professionals and entrepreneurs who are burned out and unable to prioritise but wants to take greater control of their personal and professional realities to achieve optimum performance, productivity and profitability. So, I am naturally drawn to these sets of people. I am in my true self when I interact with these people and help them achieve their ideal life.
Finding your purpose could be a lifelong journey. It’s okay to take it one step at a time. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. Just make sure you’re LIVING and not just EXISTING.
