In an EXTREMELY shortened version, I have discovered that MY PURPOSE is to help others find their own purposes and recognize that is possible to live a life in service to their purpose and actually MAKE MONEY doing it! Why? I went through the struggle and depression and pain of feeling unfulfilled in my life. Consistently knowing that I was meant for and CAPABLE of more continuously put stress on my life and made me desire CHANGE. Once I broke through the mental stigmas and actually made the decision to change, which resulted from a state of uncomfortability, I was able to see with clarity that it is my JOB to share this with the world.
But WHY is this IMPORTANT?
I want you to sit back and think of things that you DO NOT want in your life. Go ahead. Do it. -> What did you come up with?
Now, I want you to sit back and think of things that you DO WANT in your life. Go -> What did you come up with? Was it more difficult to name these things than it was to name what you didn’t want? Don’t worry it if was, that is super common. Why? Because the truth is, most of us do not know what we really want. Or, we are afraid to admit it because we think it is silly or impossible.
No. Just no. The first reason why knowing your purpose is important is because it provides CLARITY in your life. Many people are wandering aimlessly in monotonous lifestyles where they feel like they’re trapped in a hamster wheel, doing the same things day in and day out and accepting that this is all life is for them. Though they may want more or feel that they are meant for more, for whatever reason, they never bring this feeling into fruition. The first step to do so, is to get uncomfortable with this lifestyle to incite CHANGE, and realize that you can live your purpose once you gain CLARITY on what it is you really want. Trust me, clarity is one of if not THE most RELIEVING emotions you can feel.
Why else is knowing your purpose important? This one is more physical, but it is important because of your personal health. Wait…what? Yes. When your ideas of your life are not congruent with your current state, there is unhappiness, confusion, discouragement, discomfort, and fear. All of these negative emotions culminate into an overwhelming STRESS! And we all know what stress does to the body. Big stressors, and even a combination of smaller constant acute stressors are DETRIMENTAL to ones’ health. Don’t believe me? Well, sparing you the scientific details, do some research on the impact of stress on the body. A lot of the times when the source of this stress is unable to be recognized, because one’s life is seemingly perfect, they do a deeper dive and realize that it is because they are not living their PURPOSE. This unfulfilling feeling is wearing at them constantly and most of the time people are too afraid to take action against this.
I’m here to tell you, that it is TIME to take action. Live your PUROSE NOW! Find it, recognize it, DECIDE to pursue it, make the CHOICE to CHANGE, and begin living the life of your DREAMS NOW! Do it like there are lives at stake. Because there are. The most important life…yours.
