Are you doing what you were put here on this earth to really do? What's your plan to find your purpose? And if you are aware of and connected to that purpose, what exactly are you doing to be in that space day to day? The amazing grace is you don't have to look far to find it. Your life purpose is to teach the very thing you are here to learn. Even the career path you choose whether it be a doctor, artist, or entrepreneur, is simply the vehicle for which you share the experience of what you are here to learn with the world. The Design Your Year Event provides an intimate setting where you will create and further expand your life purpose. In this week’s Sun-day Design I want you to take the first step and simply reflect on your life purpose.
Some people may think it's cliché to think about purpose and passion, that as long as you have bills to pay a life of purpose will have to wait. It’s quite the opposite. When you believe you are living and working from a place of purpose you build the wealth, happiness and love you seek from the inside out.
Grab your notepad and pen, here’s a brief exercise to help you think about your life’s purpose. First think back to age 7, when you still played imaginary games, who were you? Draw a picture of how you saw yourself. What were your dreams at that age? Now fast-forward to age 14, draw a picture of yourself at that phase of life. What changed? What fears and doubts started to come up in adolescence? What areas of life did you feel unloved or unworthy? The final period I want you to visit is age 21. What parts of you did you abandon as you transitioned into adulthood? What childhood dreams do you still hold on to?
Examine your thoughts and heart's desire at those three critical age. Thank your younger self for carrying the message of what you needed to learn in order to teach others through the experience of your life. Leave a comment below and share where your life map illuminates your personal path to purpose.
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
