It is kind of a big question isn’t it? “Do you know your purpose?” In fact they don’t get any bigger, that is, questions don't get any bigger. Really though, do you know what you have been put on this fantastic planet for?
The fact is that we will each probably have a different answer to that question and there is no wrong answer, your overall purpose is whatever you want it to be. You can create your purpose using your imagination and your future happiness will probably depend on you doing it, so why is it that so many of us have not decided upon what it is?
Maybe it is because it is too big a question for us to contemplate? Maybe it is because there is no set answer? Maybe it is because it all seems a bit mystical at that level of thinking? Whatever your reason, if you do not know the answer, then it is time that you thought again!
Think about a time when you were really purposeful in something that you were doing? Picture that time in your minds eye. How did it feel at the time? Did it feel good? I’ll bet that it did.
Now remember a time when you were undecided over something, when you just couldn’t get going on something because you couldn’t decide what to do. Picture that time and notice how it felt to be you at that time. How did you feel? Not so good? A bit uncomfortable?
We feel at our best when we are purposeful in what we are doing, when we have clearly set objectives and when we are actually involved in moving towards our purpose. This is when we are at our happiest.
So, when I say that your future happiness depends on you deciding on your purpose in life, then this what I mean. If you have no overall purpose or conscious mission in life, then there will inevitably be times when you become dissatisfied, when you find it difficult to relax, when you become undecided over your actions. It is only by having a purpose and living with that purpose in mind that you will achieve your inner peace.
My purpose is to “inspire happiness, growth and success through providing tools for the personal development of others.” This is what I am working towards at Excellence Assured, my mission, and this is the reason that I am writing this blog. I am fully engaged now in my purpose and I have never been happier. Are there times when I am not sure what to do next? Yes, of course there are, but at these times I can quickly get back on track by checking my purpose and aligning my actions accordingly.
I am fortunate enough to be able to do something for a living that enables me to fulfil my purpose and I am grateful for that. Running Excellence Assured is something that I have worked hard for and something that I set as my objective some years ago. It hasn’t come easy, and it will not necessarily come easy for you either but you do not have to wait until you have achieved your objective to become happy. Just the fact that you have decided on your purpose and you have decided to align yourself to your purpose will make you feel great.
So, do it today. Decide on your mission in life, decide on your purpose in life, write it down and align your thoughts accordingly. Remember, whatever you decide upon is right for you. Take ten minutes to do it now!
