Purpose gives our life meaning. When you discover your purpose, you can live your life with intention and make choices that serve your objective for why you are here on the planet. Finding your purpose is not always easy. You must embrace life wholeheartedly, explore many different pathways, and allow yourself to grow.
Are you trying to find your purpose? Think you are running out of time? Believe me, it’s never too late to transform your life.
We each have to search for our purpose. It would be nice if it were instinctual. Most animals have strong instincts to know what to do for their survival, which is, in essence, their purpose. Human beings, on the other hand, have been given discerning minds that must go through the process of discovery and manifestation. Our base instincts aren’t good enough to even survive on this planet.
It wasn’t until 2012 that I began an earnest quest to identify my purpose. At that point, I was already 63 years old! It took another few years of discovery to finally decide that my purpose is to help people through coaching. In September 2015, I was certified as a Transformational Life Coach by the Life Mastery Institute and began the work I was meant to do in the world.
Prior to that, I had lived a life that happened to me, rather than through me. How do I know that I found my purpose? I feel energized and passionate about my work. When I wake up in the morning, I look forward to my day. Weekends aren’t about recovering from the week; rather they are about celebrating the week and looking forward to the week coming up.
If we don’t determine where we are going in our life, we will end up someplace else, wondering what happened!
I invite you to consider making the time and effort needed to define and design a life you would love. Then comes the hard part. You must transform yourself into the person who is already living that life, despite your fears and the resistance to change that we all experience. Don’t forget that help is available!
We have a mechanism that tries to keep us stuck – our ego. Befriend your ego, but be firm with it. Thanks, but no thanks!
