As human beings, we are all searching for a sense of purpose and meaning in our lives. This search for purpose often leads us to external sources such as jobs, relationships, and material possessions. However, true fulfilment can only be found by looking within ourselves.
Finding your purpose is not about your job title or your external accomplishments. It is about discovering your unique strengths, passions, and values, and aligning them with your actions and decisions. This process of self-discovery requires us to go on a journey of introspection and self-reflection. Ferne McCann and I discus in the video below when Ferne recalls always asking herself, ‘what is my purpose?’
The first step in this journey is to identify your strengths and passions. What are you good at? What activities bring you joy and fulfillment? What makes you feel alive? Take the time to explore different hobbies, interests, and activities, and pay attention to how they make you feel.
Next, identify your core values. What is most important to you in life? What do you believe in? What principles guide your decisions and actions? Your values will help you to define your purpose and give meaning to your life.
Once you have identified your strengths, passions, and values, it is important to align them with your actions and decisions. This means being intentional about how you spend your time and energy, and making choices that are in alignment with your purpose.
Your job can be a powerful tool for aligning with your purpose, but it is not your purpose in and of itself. Your job can provide you with opportunities to use your strengths, pursue your passions, and live out your values, but it is important to remember that it is only one aspect of your life.
Ultimately, finding your purpose is about finding yourself. It requires courage, vulnerability, and a willingness to explore the depths of your soul. But the rewards of this journey are immense – a sense of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that cannot be found through external sources alone.
In conclusion, finding your purpose is not about seeking external validation or accomplishments. It is about discovering your unique strengths, passions, and values, and aligning them with your actions and decisions. Your job can be a powerful tool for living out your purpose, but it is not your purpose in and of itself. Take the time to explore yourself and embark on a journey of self-discovery – the rewards will be worth it.
