20. Your Purpose is Calling


#20: Your Purpose is Calling

Thrive 2019 Candids-3511


Today, I’ll talk all about purpose. Your purpose is absolutely calling for you, right now!You already know that your life has purpose. You understand the importance of living authentically and having integrity. Today, we’ll dig even deeper into what purpose means and looks like. I created a three-step guide to help you know your purpose.Here are the steps:

  1. Start asking yourself better questions. To get clarity on your purpose, ask yourself questions about your unique skills, abilities, and personality traits, and the dreams and passions that keep showing up.
  2. Craft a personal mission statement. You can spend a couple hours working through these steps and create clarity and plan, but also look back on your life to see what pivotal moments happened for you.
  3. Get better company, and take action! If you want to be successful, you need to spend time with people who are already successful. Learn something new every day, and then take action on it.
I’ll also share a five-step process that will help you define where you are in your life right now as it relates to your purpose. To start this concrete process, grab a pen and paper, then follow these five steps:
  1. Make a list of everything you can remember that made you happy. Write down at least 10 answers.
  2. Highlight the items on your list that involve a skill, and then identify that skill.
  3. Rank the top 5 highlighted terms in order of the joy they bring you. The skill that brings you the most joy is worth 10 points, with the others descending from there.
  4. Rank the top 5 items in terms of their income potential. The most lucrative skill is worth 10 points, with the others descending from there.
  5. Total the two ranked columns. The highest score represents a potential purpose or avenue that can happen in your life.
Tune into the episode to hear more about how to make these processes work for you, as well as what some Thrive! community members had to say about their purpose!
