What does it mean to have a purpose for your life ? Jack Canfield defines purpose as follow. “To be on purpose means doing what you love to do, doing what you’re good at and accomplishing what’s important to you.
Majority of people in our world today don’t love what they are doing. They do it anyway to survive.
Experts encourages people to find out what their purpose in life is and build their life around it. Follow it with enthusiasm and passion. When you do the things you love, the money will follow. A good friend once told me: “When you do the things you love to do, you will never have to work a day in your life”. I didn’t understand him back then. But now I do.
So how can you find your purpose in life in 10 minutes?
There are many ways to do this exercise. But today I will teach you what I learned from Jack Canfield’s best seller book “The Success Principles”.
Answer the questions below to find out your purpose in life.
1. What are two of your unique qualities?
Example 1: Enthusiasm & Creativity.
Example 2: Dependable & Imaginative.
2. How do you express those qualities interacting with others? Example 1: Support & Inspire.
Example 2: Plan, follow through, dreaming big.
3. What would the world look like to you if it were perfect right now?
Examples: Everyone is kind to one another, Everyone is working in harmony.
4. Now combine your answers above in one statement:
Example 1: My purpose is to use my creativity and enthusiasm to support and inspire others to freely express their talents in a harmonious and loving way.
Example 2: My purpose is to inspire and empower others to dream big, plan, commit and achieve their dreams in life.
That’s seems easy right? Now create your own “purpose statement” for your life. It doesn’t has to be perfect. Start with this exercise. And as you grow into your purpose, over time it might change into something better and greater.
