We do a lot of coaching with people who want to find their life purpose. They want to make a difference in the world. How do you find out what your life’s purpose is? How do you know when you found it?
I’m Cathy Vartuli from http://www.TheIntimacyDojo.com and I’d love to give you my tips and pointers because once you start on the journey, once you know where you’re going, its starts getting really fun.
So most of us aren’t sitting around one day and have life’s purpose bop us upside the head. It doesn’t just fly through the air and find us. We actually get to find it, ad while that may sound frustrating, it’s actually really a delicious part of life.
What do you enjoy? What makes you feel alive? If you can identify one thing that you really enjoy, even enjoy a little bit and start doing it, you start getting more flow through your system. You’ll find that there’s aspects of the thing you do or the thing you chose that you really enjoy and some parts of it you don’t.
So, if you start following your heart and what means something to you, what gives you meaning in the world, you’ll start moving closer and closer to a life purpose that you get to really like. The truth is we choose our life purpose. Most people think it chooses us, but we get to decide and we get to modify it and grow with it over time. But when we start trying different things rather than sitting on the couch waiting for purpose to find us, we get more definition. We get more distinction. We decide, oh I like that, I’m going to go with that; that makes me feel really worthwhile; that fulfills me; I’m going to do more of that, and we move closer and closer to our purpose.
The really cool thing is there’s not only one doorway anywhere, we get to follow the doorway we’re near, the one that we’re following and it will take us to where we need to go. There’s lots of doorways to our purpose.
So, when you’re looking for your purpose, what draws you? Do you want to help people? Do you want to create? Do you want to make the world a better place? Start there and get more specific and start trying things. You don’t have to wait for your life’s purpose to get out there and make a difference. In fact, when you’re out there making a difference you’ll find more of your purpose.
I’d love to know what you think and I’d love to know what you think your purpose is, or what direction you’re heading in. Please leave comments below and let us know. Thank you.
