3 Ways to Find Your Purpose & Bridge That Gap

decision-making purpose Jun 14, 2022

How often do you feel like you're replaying each day again and again - that you SHOULD be happy...but you're not? 

You have a secure life, the bills are paid, you don't want for anything much BUT what you can't seem to bridge is that gap. That feeling that there's something missing but you don't know what it is. 

A lot of people go through life feeling like they're just drifting along. But that doesn't have to be you.

Below, I'll share some tips on how to find the things that makes you tick.

And if you noticed, i said THINGS - purpose isn't one big thing and it's not even static - it will change as you do.

Once you figure out and are super clear on what drives you, everything else will fall into place.

Oh, and spoiler alert - you do NOT have to heal the entire universe, just having meaning and a purpose that's right for you in your world is just fine.

 

Let's get to it:

It's VITAL to get clear on what you want. This might sound a tad obvious, but a lot of people have trouble figuring out what they want because they either don't take the time to think about it or they've been overwhelmed with having to find that ONE thing that changes the world, and at that point, anything else is just not good enough.

So they stay stuck in the job that they hate, or doing things in their business that they just don't enjoy anymore and everything just feels....harder. They just go through the motions day after day without any thought to what they really want out of life. If this sounds like you, it's time to sit down and get to know yourself better.

01.What does BAD look like?

I always start with this when I'm in session with my clients. We can be super clear on what we dislike which makes it a great and easy starting point to get really specific on what it is you really love. So ask yourself the following -

- What it is that is frustrating you right now and why?

- What is it that you DON'T want out of your life?

- What are you missing doing right now that might be making you feel resentful or regretful?

 

02.What does the OPPOSITE of that look like?

Here's where you figure out what drives you. It's hard when you start from a place of "what do you love" because it can be so vast.

When you start from a place of what it is that irks you - you'll find it a much easier list to write. All you're doing now is getting super clear on what the opposite of that looks like to see what comes up for you.

Once you know what drives you, pursuing it will become much easier - you have a destination. That's not to say the destination can't change, mine changed several times and I adapted as I went along.

 

03.Plan-Goals-Habits

The third step is to take action. This is where a lot of people fail. They have all the motivation and passion in the world, but they don't take any action towards their goals. If this sounds like you, it's time to start making things happen.

Remember, your purpose is not going to find you and no-one's going to have the answer for you either - you have to go out there and get it :)

Get specific on what the end outcome that you want looks like, and work back from there. And set dates, knowing that this is just a guide to keep you in flow versus a hard and fast date that is set in stone. Life happens, and we have to make things manageable for us. Break that into small goals and then identify the habits you'll need to put into place to achieve those goals.  

It may take some time, but eventually, you'll find what drives you and you'll soon see, that even what you think is a small purpose actually does have an impact on others. Because when you feel fulfilled, you bring more to the relationships in your life, and that has an impact on other people without you even actively trying.
