Figuring out your life’s purpose can be a job in itself.
I am not one of those people who knew at age four they were going to be ‘xyz’ when they grew up.
Like a lot of people I lived according to other people’s expectations. Parentsâ€™ expectations, teacher’s etc. and wound up in an accounting career because I could do it, not because I loved it. It certainly didn’t fit me like a glove.
Long story, short. I am making a transition from one career phase to another and giving this subject a lot of thought.
I waited and waited for the Grand Revelation. It didnâ€™t happen like that.
When it comes to figuring out my life’s purpose, I have found it comes in bits and pieces, one at a time. And when a piece reveals itself it resonates with me on a deep, internal level. It just fits, a lot like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle. So why not look at it like a jigsaw puzzle? And have some fun with it?
I downloaded a blank puzzle template, printed it and am filling in the pieces as they come to me, putting each phrase or idea in a separate puzzle piece. I keep this puzzle work in progress in my office where I can see it. It inspires me and gets me excited about the future. It just feels so-o-o good to know where I’m headed â€“ finding the life purpose that fits me like a glove!
It keeps me focused on it. (Law of attraction- what you focus on expands)
It draws me to it and I take action on it. (Setting a goal, and eliminating procrastination)
It feels great because I know itâ€™s really MINE! (It raises self-esteem)
You donâ€™t have to figure it out all at once. Allow it to come to you. Believe me, you will know when a piece feels right. Write the pieces on the puzzle template, look at it every day and see how it inspires you.
Then please come back here and leave a comment about your experience with it.
