Do You Know Where You’re Going?
So, What is Your Life’s Purpose? Why is it So Important? It’s the feeling that there’s real meaning to your Life and a reason for what you do. It’s having a clear direction and a driving force flowing, even bursting out from you. Leaving no doubt about your value and how best you contribute. When it just flows effortlessly and even gushes out, that’s a clear sign you just know where you're going.
It gives you a foundation for knowing your reason for ‘being’ rather than just ‘doing’. The difference between Human ‘Being’ and Human ‘Doing’. You’ll know and feel that your internal compass is directing you, coming from the ‘Holy Spirit's’ guidance.
It’s the difference between your answer to the question – WHO Are You? – as opposed to – WHAT do you do (for a living)? Many people have fallen for the WHAT sacrificing the WHO.
How Do You Determine Your Life Purpose?
Discovering your Life Purpose is part of your own individual journey. How do you know? How do you get a clear understanding? It’s a very individual path. Some of you will just know and some of you will need to go through a process of discovery to understand it.
Consider what is ‘Uniquely’ You and what You Offer
Find a quiet place where you can reflect peacefully without distractions or interruptions. Place yourself in a state of mind focused on your passion – one in which you feel inspired, directed, significant, with a vision. Focus on asking The Lord what your purpose is. Know where you're going. It's time to stop aimlessly chasing the WHAT missing out on the joy of knowing the WHO. which constitutes your identity.
Ask – What are my gifts? What are my talents? Identify things you do easily and naturally. Do people recognize I’m really good at doing certain things? What do I find meaningful? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Listen to the answers that come from within you. Listen to your heart.
How Do You Help Others?
When you help others, how do you do it? What effect does it have on others? Write Down Your Life Purpose. Set aside time to write down a clearly crafted Life Purpose or Vision statement for yourself – one that resonates and has meaning for you. Put it in a place(s) where you’ll see it often.
The ‘Power’ of a Clearly Defined Purpose
As Dr. Wayne Dyer says – "When you shift into a ‘purposeful’ state of mind, then all you need in the way of personality characteristics will naturally surface".
What this means is that when you’re doing what you love and living on purpose, giving of yourself in a joyful way, your personality will reflect that bliss and all it involves.
This will not require struggle or detailed written goals and action plans. It will not require intelligence, skills or confidence from outside of yourself because you’ll find these qualities already exist within you.
Your ability to manifest the necessary talent, intellect and, mobilize changes within yourself to fulfill your purpose will already be in place.
Living In Balance
Knowing Your Purpose Helps You Live With Integrity and In Alignment With Your Life Purpose
For instance, I know my Life Purpose is Life Enhancement – to teach and guide people (from the Bible) how to improve their lives and from my own learning experiences, by example. That’s the reason I developed the 'Heart2Heartrelationships' and 'MyLoveLink' websites.
How did I arrive at my purpose? By learning unconditional Love first, being true to God and myself, discovering my authenticity, and my unique way to achieving a self-sacrificial life through my trials, hurts, and pain, and finding and following my own passion.
I had to learn these things first before teaching others.
Learn Self-Sacrifice first and everything else will take care of itself.
When you’re inspired by a greater Life Purpose things just start to fall into place for you. Knowing your Life's Purpose on a ‘big picture’ level really helps you know how you relate to your life and others as a whole. Understanding purpose serves as a focus around which to arrange, orient, and direct your life.
