"When we do what we are meant to do,
money comes to us, doors open for us,
we feel useful, and the work we do
feels like play to us."
Define Your Life Purpose is the sixth in this ten-part series as a refresher or introduction to the powerful strategies in Working with Wisdom. See the others here.
Your life purpose is why you are here, what you are most passionate about, and what you would do even if you weren't paid for it. The most positive, engaged and productive professionals are those who express their life purpose through their work. Here's how to define yours.
Call to Action:
- Consider what motivates you, like community, creativity and independence. Identify your deepest values, like family, service and financial security. Recognize your natural gifts, like humor, compassion, and a musical or technical ability.
- With these insights, create your Life Purpose Statement. My Life Purpose Statement is: Through support and by example, I inspire others to follow their dreams and live joyfully on purpose. I wrote that statement in the early 1990s when I had my own public relations firm. It has guided me to write my book and become a motivational speaker and mentor.
- If your current work doesn't allow you to express your life purpose and you aren't in a position to change or alter your vocation, you can find a way to live your purpose through service to others as a volunteer or mentor. Like the dog-loving accountant who handles the books for the local animal shelter or the attorney committed to the arts who sponsors a community theater group.
