Clarifying Your Life Purpose

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose
and give your whole heart and soul to it

Getting clear on your life purpose isn’t as hard as most of us think it is!  Discovering what’s most important to you and why, can lay a solid foundation for the conscious intentions that will move you forward.

This article provides a way to begin clarifying your purpose and initiating the magic of aligning your thoughts, words and actions with your conscious intentions. 

What do you want in Your Life

We’ll start by using the Clarifying Your Life Purpose Worksheet to get clear on what you want to move away from and toward by taking the following steps:

  • First, make a list of what you DON’T WANT in your life. Don’t think, just go off!  When you are done, slowly read each item on the list and notice the feelings that show up.  Select the 3 items that trigger the strongest emotions.
  • Now, make a list of what you DO WANT in your life. Focus on what gives you a feeling of purpose, fulfillment and joy. When you are done, slowly read each item on the list and notice your feelings. Select the 3 items that result in the strongest emotions.
  • Enter the selected items from your DO WANT list onto a solutions worksheet.  For each item, think about what blocks you from having what you DO-WANT.  Now, identify possible solutions for each challenge.

Your Life Purpose Statement

Based on the insights gained from the steps above use the Clarifying Your Life Purpose Worksheet to create a Statement that summarizes your desired results, guiding values and commitments.  The first step in the worksheet challenges you to clarify the results you want in the most important areas of your life.  The second step challenges you to identify what you value most; why your desired outcomes are important to you.  And, the third step asks you to make a commitment to take action.

Once you have set your conscious intentions for who/where you want to be, use this Personal Assessment Worksheet 1 to confirm where you currently are.

I invite you to consider Coaching as an option to help fill the gap between where you currently are and where you want to be.
