The problem we face if we have no purpose is, we can feel stuck and just watching as time goes by and having this feeling like there is a void in our life.
Below we will look at ways we can discover our purpose and take steps to leading a more purposeful and fulfilled life.
Live Your Purpose
Make time for you – This is so important if you want to live your purpose, as if you don’t make time for yourself, you will never have the time to have clarity in your mind. This could just be something as little as 30 minutes a day, but in them 30 minutes you must truly think about what you want in life. No distractions, so things like putting our mobile phone on silent for that time and just fully focusing on what you truly want in life.
The key turning point in life for me was I was working in a job that no longer excited or fulfilled me. I needed something in my life that I was passionate about and what I truly loved. My passion and purpose is to help others and with that Kickstarterz Sports was born, a children’s sports class, helping children and their families get active. It also opened the door for me to write blogs on mental health, positivity and other subjects on health and wellbeing.
Truly focus on your goal – By becoming clear on what you really want in life, you can fine tune your mind to reaching that goal. Ask yourself these questions :-
- What is your relationship status?
- What is your financial status?
- How is your health?
- If your life was perfect right now, what would it look like?
- What would your ideal job be?
By asking ourselves these questions on a regular basis, it allows our subconscious mind to register these powerful triggers and in turn it will help you reach your goals and purpose. Now we always say that nothing is impossible but try to be as realistic to these questions that you can.
Take your time step by step and be patient.
