find your life purpose

The secret to true success and happiness if to find your life purpose now.  If you are still trying to find out what your life purpose is, that’s OK. Keep looking, and don’t stop until you find it.  The question is, “How do you find it?”

Part of the problem is the concept of ‘life purpose'. The lofty idea that we were each born for some higher purpose can be overwhelming for many people. Purpose is about finding your authentic self, and setting the intention to live in a way that honors whatever it is you find.  It’s called your ‘why’. When you come alive from within, that is when you know that you are living from a place of authenticity.

The father of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman expressed that, “The meaningful life is about finding a deeper sense of fulfillment by using your strengths in the service of something larger than yourself and nourishing others.”  Find your purpose now.  The world is waiting.

At 17 years of age I was lucky to find my purpose and calling in life, which was to grow and to give. I have devoted my career to inspiring others to live extraordinary lives and fulfill their potential as a human beings.  Finding your purpose is about listening to an inner calling.  In Let Your Life Speak: Listening To The Voice of Vocation, Parker Palmer says that we should let our life speak to us, not tell our life what we're going to do with it.  Unfortunately, a lot of people look for a career before they listen for their life purpose.

I want to share with you three actionable steps that you can take in order to find your life purpose now:

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

The desire to play it safe is comforting, but this isn't where real growth occurs. Comfort is the enemy.  At first, growth can be a place of discomfort, but eventually it turns into a place of possibility.  The reality is that you only find your true purpose in life when you take a leap of faith and escape from your comfort zone.

This is where we learn, expand, grow, and reach our full potential.  Karen Salmansohn said it best, “The best things in life are often waiting for you at the exit ramp of your comfort zone.”  This is where the real magic happens. Find your purpose now.

Drop From Your Head to Your Heart

Your heart is one of the best tools at your disposal to access your purpose in life.  One of the main reasons why so many people never find their purpose is that they over-think it.  Your head makes everything messy.  Drop into your heart and ask yourself, “What most excites me in life?”

When you live from your heart, you are guided in a way that serves your highest self, and in turn, your mind will follow. Alignment is the key to finding your life purpose.  Rumi said it best, “Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.”  The result? Ultimate freedom and abundance.

Find a Coach/Mentor

The reality is that nobody achieves success by themselves, which is why it is so important to surround yourself with like-minded people who inspire and support you along your journey.  One person or word of advice could forever alter the direction that your life takes, but you have to ask for help and be resourceful.

Join a mastermind group, hire a life coach, or find a mentor that can motivate you to find your ‘why.'  Life is full of teachers who are there to support you in the realization of your purpose, BUT it is up to you recognize them when you appear. In the words of Shawn Hitchcock, “A mentor empowers a person to see a possible future, and believe it can be obtained.”

Don't strive for a job or a career. Think bigger. Strive for a life of purpose. In the words Mark Twain, “The two most important days of your life is the day you were born and the day you find out why.” I challenge you to rise up and find your life purpose now!
