Finding Your Purpose
So, I’m going to be upfront about everything. I like to plan out my blog posts. I like to have a set schedule so that I know what I’m going to post about. Today was supposed to be about Shakeology and why I believe in it since it’s become a regular part of my life lately. Then, I got into an interesting conversation with a friend and my blog post for the day changed. I’ll come back to the Shakeology post another day, but for now, this post seemed more important.
I’m no expert on life and I’m not going to pretend to be an expert. I am, however, an individual just like you trying to navigate life and figure out where I belong in it.
Today, I got into a conversation with a friend about what our purpose in life is. It made me realize that I’m a firm believer that everyone has a purpose – whether they realize it or not. We each have unique talents for a reason. It’s a matter of figuring out how to use them to help ourselves.
I’m also a firm believer that your purpose in life can change. Your goals and dreams are meant to shift and take new forms as you move through life. Your purpose right now might be different than your purpose later in life.
I’ve recently found my purpose in helping others find health and happiness. This is a temporary break from my previous purpose of educating children. I hope to eventually get back to that purpose, but for now health and happiness is where my heart lies for several reasons.
It’s been a long journey figuring this out and I want to give you a few questions to help you as you figure out your path in life.
1. Are you happy with where you are right now?
2. What would you change about your life? Have you put a plan into place to make these changes?
3. Who are you helping right now?
4. Where is your focus?
5. What makes you happy?
6. What do you wish you had more time for?
7. How can you make more time for the things you love?
8. What risks can you afford to take?
Remember, you only get one life and one body. Take a little bit of time today to figure out if you’re on track with your goals and purpose. If you’re not, figure out how you can change to meet your goals. That’s what I did and I’m loving the results so far!
