About Find your Life Purpose
I love this quote, which is particularly relevant to this course:
Life Without a Purpose
Many of us lack direction in our lives. We don't have a strong feeling of what we should be doing with the time we have available. Annoyingly though - we often feel that - whatever it is - it isn't this!
We might consider a new career - but with the huge investment required, and the loss of the old one which pays the mortgage, and no sense of certainty that we'll be any happier there - we're reluctant to move. Like a donkey equidistant between two carrots - we're don't move towards anything with conviction, and so we starve.
Toiling away to make someone else rich is not usually fun. Working for yourself to keep your head above water is not fun. Flitting from thing to thing half-heartedly, to see if it will make you happy is not fun either.
A Purpose Driven Life
What if you knew exactly, and with complete certainty, what you wanted to do with your whole life? No ifs, no buts - just the huge, comforting certainty that you knew where happiness, accomplishment, fulfillment of potential and ultimate satisfaction lay?
Well, firstly - that's a huge comfort! It represents the removal of all those angst-ridden doubts. You have a place in the world which will always be yours. You have a home.
And secondly, I'm guessing that you'd invest all that you have on your purpose. Your certainty about what you want - about who you are - gives you strength and determination to take you through the troubled waters between you and your goals.
And you'd enjoy that journey! No matter that the path wasn't always smooth, or that the journey took a long time (I guarantee - it will take all the time you live). Finally, you'd be happy on your journey - not just pining for your destination. Because this is what you want to do. This is what you're here for - and this will thrill and inspire you for all of your days.
How Would You Feel You Absolutely Knew Your Purpose?
Finding your Life Purpose
First the bad news: you can't Argos it! But anyone can find their life's true purpose if they invest a little time and energy.
You have to look back into your life and think about what you've done and how you felt and feel about that. And you have to look out into the world and touch your inner feelings about what you see. And you have to look in - inside your self and learn some things about what you see. Then you can look forward into your future and find the one that is meant to be yours.
I did this about 8 years ago. It's why I left corporate management after 17 years of being very good at it. Ever since then, I've known what I'm here for. I have a four-word phrase (first word is one letter - sounds like "sky"- personal pronoun ) - which tells me fundamentally who I am, and why I am on the planet. It's a secret! But I'm glad I know it. As I look at what I do, I know to what extent I am living on purpose. It is my guide and my compass, and as I look back - I realise that it has been there all along, but I didn't know it before. Now it's conscious I can be far more focused in what I choose to do and how.
Life Purpose versus Life Goals
Often people don't know the difference between their purpose and their goals, so let me explain that. Really, your purpose is your highest level goal - it's the goal which all other goals serve. It's the goal of your whole life. The other "goals" are smaller items which (hopefully) serve your purpose. So, for example, if you had a purpose to get warm, then goals serving that purpose might be put on gloves, wear a hat, light a fire, etc.
There is a useful analogy. Your purpose is like a compass for your life. It always points the way. You may have to go around some mountains, or even back-track now and then - but if you do - you'll know it - and you'll always know how to get back on track.
So if you want a nice car - that's a goal which is serving some deeper life goal. If you want a big house - same thing. If you want to be prime minister - again - probably a goal and not a life purpose.
Life Purpose Examples
So let's take a look at some life purposes. These are the things which will pop out of all that paperwork you'll be doing.
Are you surprised or even disappointed? Certainly, these are not fully-fleshed out lifestyles, with income brackets, post codes and children counts, are they? Your purpose is the core. The starting point. It is not a goal.
Using Your Life Purpose
The reason your purpose is so valuable is that it is the rock-solid foundation upon which you can build your life. As we saw earlier, lack of certainty keeps most of us from investing heavily in any particular direction. So when you have certainty - you can use it powerfully to thrust your life along its chosen path.
And of course, as the owner of your purpose - you'll know a great deal more about what's behind the four or so words in your purpose. The groundwork you did to get here will have been very enlightening indeed.
When you have your life purpose, you'll begin to see meaning and structure in the events of your life. You'll see why you did what you did; which choices were wise, and which were less so. You can use your purpose as a yard stick to measure your current situation and any plans you may already have. And of course, you can use it to make new plans - and these plans will be backed with your new-found certainty. You will implement those plans powerfully - and you'll enjoy the process.
