For A Life With Meaning
It's not often the world gets rocked on it's axis the way it has been during 2020. It's life changing for some, with jobs, loved ones and the future under threat, or maybe already lost. For others it's the death of a dream as their hopes of finding more meaningful work may be sacrificed on the alter of survival. Some may have to learn new marketable skills as their industry is decimated for years to come and others may use this time to retrain for higher skilled employment, or dip a toe in the water of self-employment.
Seldom as a community do we see death this close up. When death has become all our problem, rather than individual tragedies.
Now is a pivot point and the perfect time to look at your life, how you express your purpose and what more you want from your life in the future. Because threat to life and livelihood has a very useful way of focusing your attention on what you want your life to represent. Most people don't know their life purpose and even when they've got an idea it can be a bit vague ie making a contribution or sometimes they follow what they think their life purpose "should be" ie helping others, rather than what they were really meant to do.
Discovering your life purpose is not always easy: it can sometimes be confusing and frustrating and it can take a while - more like panning for gold that picking up a pebble. But it will be the biggest personal development journey of your life: you'll get to understand yourself, your real self; you'll see where your strongest influences have come from and how they have shaped you; you'll need to feel your way into the process, because too much thought can take you away from your real life purpose and you'll be able to identify your blocks to expressing the essential you.
And just because you know your life purpose doesn't mean you have to change your life overnight. But once you know your life purpose you can choose: you can choose to live your life purpose quickly, or move towards it more gradually according to your life circumstances.
Knowing your life purpose has many benefits:
And you don't need to do it all at once, but if you don't get started now, when will you? Now is the only time to make significant change.
Now you can go online and ask how to discover your life purpose and find some useful questions that will lead you in the right direction, and for some people that will be sufficient. But I'd like to suggest (from painful personal experience) that asking the right questions is much more important than just asking questions. It's the nuances that often trip people up: not being specific enough; or being too specific; or following a passion only to discover it fizzles out after a couple of years and they are back to square one.

When it comes to Life Purpose, I've been there, done that, got the T-shirt. After years of searching for my own Life Purpose though a journey which included: personal assistant, complementary therapist, granny-in-law, I finally found my life purpose under my nose! As a life purpose mentor, I finally feel as though I've arrived. As you can imagine, I've learned a lot along the way - and I'd love to pass it all on, because once you've pinned down your life purpose, life gets a whole lot better.
