We are in the final quarter of the year. Are you on track with all those goals and resolutions you made for 2011? Are you feeling more connected to your Life Purpose? Are you expressing that more than ever? Doesn’t it feel wonderful when you do?
Remember your Life Purpose is your reason for be-ing. It is who you are and what you do. You can bring the essence of who you are into anything you do.
When you know your Life Purpose, you can direct your energy to “work” that is fulfilling and gives meaning and value to your life. You can feel and be passionate and purpose-full. It is the things that turn you on, light you up and energize you. And you understand why you always respond in a certain way.
I thought I would describe the different Life Purposes over the next series of articles and give you some insights to help you live more fully on purpose.
The Master of Success is a thumb Life Purpose. This person is independent and wants to make her own way in the world. She can take the intangible and turn it into something tangible and useful. Often full of ideas, she is good at taking action and getting results when living purposefully and following her own goals. She makes an excellent CEO and can be very inspiring.
The challenges for this person include being sure to work at their chosen career and not get stuck fulfilling parents’ dreams for them that may not align with their desires. They can also flip to the too little side of their purpose and not complete their projects, stop short of success or fail to dot the ‘i’s and cross the ‘t’s so their work lacks quality.
One of the major challenges I see in working with people who have the purpose is they fail to acknowledge their results. Instead of stopping and recognizing their accomplishments they quickly move on to the next project which can lead to being driven and not feeling successful. I coach them to stop and breathe in their successes and really own them.
