How to Find Your Purpose in Life?
It's not all about You!"
as Rick Warren suggest in his awesome book "The Purpose Driven Life
The purpose of your life is far greater than
your own personal fulfillment,
your peace of mind or
even your happiness.
It is far greater than your family, your career, or
even your wildest dreams and ambitions!
You must begin with God if you truly wish to discover your true purpose!
You were born by the Grace of God and for the Grace of God!!
Some people say:
Your Life was a gift from God and what you do with your Life is your gift to God!
Focusing on Ourselves will never reveal our life's purpose.
What on Earth Am I Here For?
You were made by God and for God, maybe you say
Universal Intelligence or by whatever name you
call your Higher Power.....
and until you understand that, life will never make sense!
Here are 5 ways to discover your
Purpose and Passion in Life!
1. Make a list of everything that excites you, things you do for fun...
What makes you happy....at home, at work, with friends,
sports, art, travel, hobbies (think an abundance of money)!!!
2. Now look at the people you admire, your role models and mentors
Make a list of the things you admire about these people.....their kindness, standing up for the truth...what is it that you notice most about them??
Your task now is to copy their positive life affirming traits ....you were attracted to these traits because they speak to you ...
it is your inner guidance! also called your Intuition!!
3. Make a List of Things that come naturally to you...without a second thought?
These are your God given talents and
so many of us miss them because
we are too busy looking for something outside ourselves!
Maybe it is your sense of humor, your creativeness or playfulness,
perhaps you have an amazing way with animals or
you love working with numbers ..... Our genius
Genius is described as one's natural ability or capacity.
strong inclination, gift, talent endowment, distinctive character or
spirit to list a few definitions from the dictionary.
4. Review your Passions, Actions and Genius Lists
Commit to spending at least 10 minutes each day
doing something from one of these 3 lists!
Dance, Sing, Organize a drawer or room,
Thank someone you really appreciate, anonymously!!
5. Pay Attention to How you are Feeling!
You will be feeling excited, alive and happy to begin each day...
If you are Living your Life's purpose!!
This is where you get to move out of your comfort zone >>
Are you feeling fearful with these new challenges???
F.E.A.R. stands for:
False Expectations Appearing as Real
It is natural to feel scared when first
stepping into your "Life's Purpose"!
Feel the Fear but Do It Anyways!
