How to Find Your Purpose

Live a meaningful life

Do you ever feel like something is missing?

Some days it feels as if one day just rolls into the next. We go through the same motions day in and day out until we start doing them without thinking. This is dangerous.

Have you ever been reading something just to realize once you’ve finished that paragraph that you didn’t actually retain any of the information? Yeah, that’s how the majority of us live our lives. Life isn’t meant for us to live as robots set on autopilot. Do you remember what you saw on your way to work this morning? Chances are unless it was something to bring your immediate attention, you won’t remember the details.

This brings up a very important question. Are you living your life’s purpose?

Your purpose is greater than your excuses.

We ALL have excuses.

Fears. Limiting Beliefs. Procrastination. etc.

But we all also have a PURPOSE, and our purpose is much bigger than us.

So how do we find our purpose?

Ask the right questions.

What do you value? How can you take that value and re-create it to share with the world?

Finding your purpose is different than thinking about your future career. If you are focused on a career than put together a strategy instead of a mission. Today we are here to build our mission.

Purpose Exercise
  1. Create a list of 50 things that have brought you great joy in the past and present.
  2. From this list Identify key items that felt the most meaningful to you, trusting your intuition.
  3. Take that list and separate them into categories.
  4. How does this contribute to the well-being of others?

After completing this exercise myself, this is what I came up with Purpose Exercise.

My Mission Statement

I precipitate healthy thoughts and habits for the new generation of thought leaders to help raise awareness to shift consciousness and move forward from past harmful tendencies.

I enable people to stay connected to the things they love by keeping their minds, bodies, and souls present in the moment by providing techniques to focus on what is most important in their lives.

Your purpose needs you right now

and THAT is far greater than all of my fears and excuses combined. I REFUSE to let my bull shit stop me.

Because my purpose is far greater than my hesitations.

Your purpose needs you to be relentless, persistent and consistent with your actions. Your purpose needs you to be courageous enough to push through your bull shit.

There are many ways to find your purpose. Your purpose today may be different than your purpose tomorrow. The goal here is to live your best life each day not only for you but for the people in your life. We could all use a little more joy.

If anything, I hope this article inspires you to seek joy at every opportunity.
