We all have a purpose but many of us have never thought to describe it in a sentence. Do not fear, a “purpose” is not final or ultimate. It is always evolving. It evolves as we gain more knowledge and experience of ourselves.Your Life’s Purpose, put simply, is something that you work towards all your life.
Here are a few tips to describing your purpose:
- It should be broad enough to encompass many aspects of your life.
- It should be something that you never complete.
- It should be something that gives you a good feeling.
- It should be something that contributes to others.
If somebody (or a universal guiding force) looked at your life and could see past, present and future, what would they say your purpose would be?
Assess your life experiences to date, your challenges, your gifts, and your opportunities. Find the direction and reason for these, and how they might contribute to a purpose. Look at what you contribute to family, friends, and colleagues. In conversation and consideration, what balance do you bring to the situation?
