If you can’t figure out your life purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you to your purpose. T P Jones
I’m finding that more and more of my clients are searching for their life purpose rather than success in terms of financial and material benefits. They are looking to feel passionate and authentic in their working lives.
If we have to work, wouldn’t it be better to do something we love and not just follow the money?
If you are struggling to find your life purpose, here are five tips to help you:-
1. Find Your Passion
Your purpose is linked to your passions, in terms of your hobbies, beliefs or creative activities. It’s what makes you come alive. What you would do if money was no issue. What would make you bounce out of bed every day, whether you made money or not?
2. Imagination Is Freedom – Be Curious
If you are struggling to find your life purpose…. use your imagination and natural curiosity to find your passions. When you are open to new ideas, places and experiences, you´ll find that you are naturally drawn to what excites you.
3. Work Your Strengths
Once you are aware of your passions, make a list of your key strengths. Key strengths are areas where you feel confident in your abilities. For example, are you a people person or more skilled in organisation? Do you enjoy public speaking or prefer to work in the background? Your key skills are transferable to help you work with your passions and develop your life purpose.
4. Highlight Work In Progress Areas
Highlight skills you may need to convert your passions to your life purpose. You can develop these skills yourself, or seek the help of someone else who is skilled in this area.
Whether your passions develop into your life purpose and become a hobby or a career, experiment with following your passions and purpose. Find like-minded people, join groups and see how other people are developing their passions into their life purpose. You can also volunteer to gain experience to help you decide on how you will work with your purpose in the future.
