Have you set goals and/or intentions for this year? If you haven’t, you’re not alone. Nearly 90% of people do not set goals for themselves, they watch life happening and react to situations accordingly.
This most likely happens not because you don’t want to set goals, but because you aren’t clear on what it is you want.
You probably know a lot of what you don’t want, but are you clear on what you DO want?
As a Coach, my focus is to help you reconnect with your life purpose. Not be confused with your job, career, or work, your life purpose embodies expressing your true self and loving who you are, exactly where you are.
Practicing your life purpose allows you to express your uniqueness, and in turn shines your light so bright that it illuminates the path for others. It’s how you show up in the world; how you raise your children, how you treat your friends, how you spend your money, what you choose as hobbies, etc.
As a mom, wife, friend, business owner, etc., I reach moments of feeling lost and overwhelmed. Even when I have set intentions, life happens and it feels as though I’m taken off track. This is when I take a moment to realign and focus again.
Easier said than done, right? This simple exercise could be all you need to start building momentum.
Next time you’re feeling off track try this:
- Take a deep breath, ahhhhh….
- Put your hand on your heart and
- Ask yourself “what do I need in this moment?”
The most important part is to listen for the answer. Your quiet mind will always have the intention of your life purpose.
However, unless you are tuned in to what you are looking for, or trying to connect with, you may start to believe your magic wand is low on batteries. This is common of people who aren’t sure what their life purpose is and how to tune into it.
Repetition of this brief “self check-in” will help you to become more and more in tune with yourself. The purpose of this daily practice is to revert to your higher purpose when in doubt and you will start to live your life with increased alignment and more authenticity.
When we will live our lives on purpose and make more space for the possibilities, we are creating instead of reacting.
One way you can begin to explore what your life purpose is, is to spend some time comparing some past experiences that brought you great joy. Joy is part of an internal guidance that appears when we are in alignment with our higher purpose. To begin, make a list of these experiences or memories. Then ask yourself the following questions:
- What do these experiences have in common?
- Do they all create a certain feeling (calm, freedom, excitement, love)?
- Do they all have a theme (being in leadership roles, helping others, etc.)?
By looking at these moments that have elicited high periods of joy, you can determine your life purpose.
Anytime you are feeling lost, or confused, or overwhelmed, think of your higher purpose and ask yourself if you’re coming from this place.
