How to Discover your Purpose + Design a Purpose Driven Life
Updated: Jul 24, 2021
If you stopped on this blog because you have been at a point in your life when you want to make meaningful changes so that you can live your most authentic life then welcome! you are not alone :)
Like you, I spend a lot of time thinking about ways that I can raise my consciousness and live more intentionally and I have found that truly exploring my purpose on this earth. How I make people feel, how I add to the lives of others, and how I show up in the world are important to me.
Without further ado, let's discuss what you are truly here for. Let's talk about the importance of defining your purpose so that you can live a life that is both fulfilling and aligned with your vision. The ability to articulate your purpose is the cornerstone of living a purpose-driven life.
Before we dive into discussing what purpose truly means, let's talk a bit about Passion. Passion plays a small role in how you define your purpose, however, both are not interchangeable. I often hear people say you should pursue your passion but I beg to differ, instead I believe you should pursue your purpose and do so fervently. Your Purpose is innate to who you are while your passions may change from time to time. Strictly focusing on passion can be limiting, especially because passion is based on the things you have already experienced and not necessarily what is possible. Purpose pushes you to experience more and live a more fulfilling life.
We will jump in and explore two worksheets from the Simply Purposeful Life Planner.
This planner is built around a proven system that will help you define your purpose, craft SMART Goals that are aligned with your purpose, adapt and track new habits that are more purpose focused.
The Purpose Genius Zone worksheet and the Wheel of purpose are both found in the Simply Purposeful Life Planner.
Recognize your Purpose Genius Zone
Now let’s get into exploring how to define your “Purpose Genius Zone”
Your "Purpose Genius Zone" is a culmination of your Passions & Interests, Abilities & Skills, the needs that you see in the world.
Passions & Interests: these are the things that you enjoy doing and makes you happy. These things are interesting to you and and you would do it even if you weren't paid.
Abilities & Skills: these are the things that you are good at, what people as you for help with and naturally come easy to you.
Needs that you see in the world: What do you want to see change? what issues do you care about? what can you contribute to in the world?
The combination of passion, skills and the change you want to see in the world
