....To do what you want to do!
Here's a big question: What's your Purpose? It's as bad as saying to kids: What do you want to be when you grow up? It's something we think about more than ever in our fast-paced lives. Bestselling self-help books encourage us to fulfil our true potential, while Instagram mantras tell us to dream big, reach for the stars, follow our destiny. To find Purpose, we feel we have to do something radical, go out of our comfort zones overhaul our careers and relationships. It can all sound a bit... terrifying. As well meaning as the question is, it can have a detrimental effect, paralysing us before we've even started.
Instead, we should try think about our purpose with a small 'p'. Just by shifting the emphasis from an end goal to being in the now, you can make remarkable changes in your life. More often than not, purpose and progress. Some people do know their purpose from an early age, or find it in an 'Aha!' moment, yet despite being rare they can leave the rest of us feeling like we've failed. Rather, we should look closer to home to start realising our dreams. By living with purpose rather than seeing it as something to find, we can quietly revolutionise the life we live on a day-to-day basis.
Start thinking of your purpose as a mindset. Look for the commonalities that run through your life.
What you like doing? What makes you happy? What are you naturally good at?
Sometimes we have to unpick what we don't like doing to find out what we do like doing. Find like minded people who share your passions. Make your passion your purpose.
