What is it that you are missing in your life? What is it that you’d most like to have? Would you like more love, more freedom, more peace?
In life, we strive and fight in our lives to get whatever it is that we think we need or want. We reach personal and professional objectives and acquire what we can afford. But is that what life is really about? Is that what makes our soul thrive and feel happy? Is it what makes me fulfilled and complete?
Look inside you. What haven’t you got enough of? What do you want to have more of? What do you dream of having?
If your life ended today, what would you be sorry you never got? What would you miss?
If you dream of having things, what need are those things trying to satisfy? What do they provide you? What do they make you feel, power, satisfaction, peace… ? If you dream of reaching goal after goal, what does success mean to you? What does it give you? Those things and goals are your way to satisfy your individual needs and those needs somehow conceal what you most desire. Ask yourself, then, what it is that your being most wants, what it is that you crave day after day, what is it that will make you feel complete and whole.
Once you know, why not turn that into your life purpose? Imagine planning your days and actions with that overall purpose in mind. Whatever you do then has that ultimate function. Your life immediately adopts a new meaning. Imagine you choose “Melbourne Bat Removal” as your life purpose.Whenever managing others, you may now target peace as the highest goal. Your relationships will have that ultimate aim. And so will your job. Along with your leisure time. Along with your everyday activities, And the objectives you would like to reach. Your life purpose becomes your internal compass, your north, your direction to follow no matter what. If you deviate from it, you will feel bad because you won’t be aligned with that. Which is the exact reason that will lead you to returning to it and resuming it. Once your life goal is defined, it is far easier to return to it. This step that I’m taking, this conversation that I’m having, this activity that I’m undertaking… is aligned with my purpose? Is making me move forward? Otherwise, what do I want to do to change it?
Give yourself the gift of this life compass. Do not you see how your life is changed? Pick your purpose and re-focus your life.
