Life Purpose is not something that many people think about or even could describe but it can be one of the most important aspects of life to clarify. Many seek to find fulfilment and success in a variety of different areas. Life purpose seeks to bring all those areas together.
Marcia Bench, author of the best selling book “ Career Coaching”, states in her book:
" People will tend to experience success and fulfilment in their life to the extent that they are clear about their life purpose".
So what is a Life Purpose?
Colin Salisbury of “Life that Matters” states:-
“Life purpose is a calling, overall theme for our life or intent that transcends our daily activities. It is the quality we are here on earth to develop, the type of service we are here to render, the way we can enhance or improve some segment of the planet. It is much broader than one job or career; it pervades our entire life”.
3 Steps to Find your Life Purpose:-
1.You will find your life purpose when you find the crossover of your unique desires/strengths and a human need.Knowing your strengths and passion is not a life purpose until you are able to match it with some human need.
2. Get a clear understanding of your passions/ values.
Your values are those things you are naturally inclined towards when your needs are fully met. They are more than “wants”; they represent what you are truly passionate about. Begin to develop some words that sum up what contribution you want to make and to whom.
3.Understand the blockages
Fear, failure, thinking is it only for a few and viewing the cost as too high, are a few of the blocks that can get in the way. Identifying your blockage can be useful to stop you sabotaging your behaviour on your journey.
