Purpose is the original intent of creation. It is the number one reason why a thing is or in this case your number one reason for being. It is what makes you unique.
Life today makes it so easy for us to be everyone else but our true selves. For us to live everybody else’ lives but our own. It takes a tremendous amount of courage for us to own up to who we really are and that courage is what most of us lack.
The soul which has no fixed purpose in life is lost; to be everywhere, is to be nowhere. ~ Michel de Montaigne
Purpose goes beyond career paths and business plans . It begins with finding your authentic self. The one you have buried beneath other people’s needs” or beneath peer pressure or societal expectations and sometimes it feels like life just ripped it away from you.
But whatever it is that took your true self away, you have to get it out of the way and this platform to dedicated to show you how.
Every thing you need to get to the future that you want is tied to your purpose or fulfilling destiny (as it can also be interpreted as). Identifying your purpose is a journey that you must make but you don’t have to make it alone.
The journey of fulfilling purpose isn’t easy. It can be a rollercoaster of ups and downs that can have you wanting to jump off when things get difficult. And, if you’re doing it right, things will definitely get tough.
Your journey will require you to travel to the depths of your soul. To those dark corners where you’ve been keeping repressed thoughts and feelings carefully hidden away and locked up tight.
“We begin to find and become ourselves when we notice how we are already found, already truly, entirely, wildly, messily, marvelously who we were born to be”- Anne Lamott
Every body else’ life is taken. You have to live yours in the truest way possible.
And here are three steps to help you begin;
- BE QUIET
Sounds easy, doesn’t it ? I bet you’re saying “I’m just going to go ahead and be quite right now and see how it helps me identify my purpose”
Well how did it go?
This quietness is different. It’s sacred. It’s a silence that helps you run away from the noise both outside and in you. You have to be still and look into yourself, into the depth Of your soul.
It can be scary and uncomfortable. You may have to see things about yourself that you don’t like but it’s a necessary step.
“Observing yourself is the necessary starting point for any real change”-Chalmers Brothers..
2. REALIZE WHO YOU ARE; NOT WHO YOU WANT TO BE
You need to forget everything you think you know and accept what is. Sometimes the mental picture of who would like to be becomes so strong in our minds that it begins to overrides the sense of who we truly are. A
And that’s where we have the biggest struggle, where we fight the biggest battle.
In order to identify and fulfill your purpose you have to be willing to see yourself completely as you are. F
3. FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT
“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.” – T.D. Jakes
Your passion may not be “popular” or what “sells” but it is the number one pointer to what your purpose is.
Passion cannot be bought, sold, borrowed, learnt or imparted. It gotta come from with in you. It’s in born.
Knowing your passion in life gives you something to build the rest of your life around.
Your passion can be anything that simultaneously challenges you, intrigues you and motivates you. Contrary to the idea that doing what you love makes work effortless, a passion puts you to work. It’s what you’re willing to sacrifice lesser leisure and pleasures for. Seek it and where you find it may surprise you.
The journey of identifying and fulfilling your purpose is going to demand so much from you. And I am dedicated to walking through it with you by providing you with all the resources you need.
