Purpose - It's All About You!

Transformation Life Architects - Friday, March 29, 2019

What's my Purpose?  How do I find my Purpose?  The first step is to understand, Your Purpose is all about you,  first, before it becomes about others!  

When your Why is big enough,  human beings are capable of achieving incredible things. But knowing your purpose, allows you bring your massive "Why" to everything you do and every corner of your life.  But if you don't know 'why' or have your values aligned with your goals, everything you do will be low priority for you, and high priority for someone else.  Simply said:  If you don't know what you want, your day will be filled creating satisfaction for everyone else.  

Don Juan, the famous Mexican Shaman once said:  "For me there is only the travelling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart.  There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length.  And there I travel, looking, looking breathlessly."

Heartfelt Purpose

What does this mean?  In a nutshell: 'Whatever you do in life, make sure it has heart.'  And it is impossible to put 'the heart' in to anything until you give it meaning.  The reason that Purpose is so important is that it gives meaning to whatever we do in life.  Human beings are 'meaning making - Goal setting' creatures and therefore we constantly want to put meaning onto the tasks we are doing in order for us to remain enthusiastic and inspired and see the tasks through to completion.

When you are looking for your purpose, it is essential that 'the purpose' relates first of all to you.  What do I mean by that?  Often, in our desire to find our purpose we get 'enrolled' by the enthusiasm of others and their purpose.  We all have heard people say: "My purpose is to feed the starving kids in Indian", very noble idea, but what happens if that is resolved!  Do you not have a purpose any more?   If you purpose depends on you fulfilling the desires of someone else, then your happiness is at the mercy of other people, and you will always need others in order feel fulfilled.  

Knowing your purpose, is not about other people.  You will wake up in the morning saying things like:  I am inspired to do 'a,b,c'  because it aligns with my purpose!  You will ask yourself questions such as:  "Does this task I am about to do support my purpose and vision in any way, shape or form?"  If no, you won't do it!   When you are asked to do things for others, very quickly you will subconsciously assess the value as compared to your priority and have no hesitation in saying "No" or "You know what that doesn't align with my goals (purpose) right now, sorry"   

Everything you do will be justified, related to or inspired by your highest value, your purpose in life.  Even time management becomes easier and simply seems to flow.  

As I said,  whatever you do, follow your heart, live authentically and on Purpose!  That is the key to happiness.  It really is all about you, because when you are on purpose, you will achieve extraordinary things and change the world.
