THE ART OF MASTERING YOUR MIND
PURPOSE is the reason for which something is done. Unlike intent, purpose is the significant principle for which something exists.
Your purpose is simply your reason for being. It is what fuels your zeal or motivates you to get up in the morning. It answers the question; “what am I trying to do with my life?” You may be working a job that you don’t have passion for, or you are not contented with your present state in life and it all feels like a rollercoaster of cycling back and forth without progress and you are walking around and wondering: “What is my purpose?”
Having a PURPOSE makes it impossible to merely exist. When you have a definite reason for living, a “why” behind every action, your passions and talents will drive you toward a happy, fulfilling destination thus empowering you to tackle and bear almost any (how) that arises from the circumstances life throws at you.
Walk through this definition process with me to find your purpose:
ONE - Story Grid
Design your story grid to be as powerful, as positive, and as rich as possible. Begin recording insights or themes that have occurred in your life. Understand five themes of your life, noting the circumstances that have affected you.
TWO - Values
The value guide shapes your priorities and reactions, which serve as markers to determine if your life is heading in the right direction and turning out the way you want it to. We explore things that guide and motivate you, and how to integrate core values into your sub-consciousness to serve as an armrest, framework, or moral standard by which you coordinate your daily activities.
THREE - Greatness
Knowing your own strengths and gaps gives you a better understanding of yourself and how you function.
FOUR - Release Doubts
We all have moments of self-doubt. Moments when that voice in our head tells us that we're not good enough, smart enough, experienced enough and so on. Our mind can easily leave us in a state of fear, where we hold ourselves back from tapping into and living our potential. The beauty is that we don't have to live that way. We always have a choice.
FIVE - Legacy
How would you like to be remembered? What is the legacy you are passing on? We explore the contributions you’ve made and those you'd like to achieve and look at the path ahead of you.
SIX - Purpose
Developing your purpose statement forces you to reflect on how all these factors contribute to your purpose. I will help you write a purpose statement that clearly captures the essence of who you really are and where you are going.
