Are you ready, curious, and committed to finding your purpose in life?
Great! When will you start?
Is there anyone who hasn't asked, at some time or another, “Where am I going with my life?”
What is your purpose? Are you doing all that you can with the gifts you've been given? Would your life be peaceful and full of happiness if you knew your purpose?”
I should tell you that I am no expert on the answers to your questions. However, I can offer you the space and a process to explore these and other questions in depth. You see, no one is an expert on your purpose except you!
If someone claims to be a life-purpose expert and proceeds to tell you why you are here, run the other way and run really fast.
Here is the process that I use for helping others to find their purpose in life. It developed after thousands of hours of experiences and feedback from others, like you, who were on their journey to identifying and living their purpose in life:
1. Exploring with the use of powerful questions.
In this step is where we get to explore, use our curiosity, and ask lots of questions. Below is just a sample:
“What does finding and living your purpose look and feel like?”
“Why is it important to you having a purpose?”
“What would your life look like if you did not have a purpose?”
“What do you think is getting in the way of finding your purpose?”
“What role, if any would religion and or spirituality play a role in your search?”
“Are you committed to the process of searching for your purpose in your life?”
2. Assessing your needs and values.
Once we identify your needs and values, we have an understanding what you need and what is important in your life. Also, we have a solid compass that would guide the rest of the process in working together. This is a critical step.
3. Using positive thoughts and habits.
It is very important to identify the thinking behind your actions. Every action was born from a thought. You need to understand how your thoughts and actions can either hold you back or push you forward on your path to finding your life purpose.
As an expert in the communications area, I will introduce you to simple, yet powerfully easy-to-use tools that will help you to clarify, organize and focus your thoughts in a manner that will serve you quite well going forward in the search process.
4. Identifying your purpose in life.
This is a powerful step. At this point, your level of self-awareness and acceptance has been solidified. We will use tools and materials that will narrow your focus and identify your purpose in life. At the conclusion of this step, you would have created your “Life Purpose Declaration”, which identifies why you are here on earth and what you will be doing with your life going forward. Congratulations are in order at this step.
5. Sustaining and maintaining your purpose in life.
This step explores all that you need to do to gather the support and resources to sustain and maintain your purpose, as you go forward on your path in life. This is where you announce to your love ones how you are choosing to live your life going forward, and letting them know their support is welcomed.
6. Enjoying your new found purpose and freedom to express yourself to the world.
This is where you get to reap the rewards of your efforts invested in our time together. Nice work!! Now get out there and do what you were here to do.
Now that you have an idea of what you can do to explore your purpose in life, what do you plan to do next? Are you ready to make some changes? Do you feel that knowing your purpose in life is important? Do you need someone to help you to figure out what is your purpose? You have some things to think about. When you are ready, I'm here to help. Contact me.
Be well. Be curious. Be yourself.
