5 Questions To Help You Harness Your Life Purpose

5 Questions To Help You Harness Your Life Purpose

Are  you living your life purpose? Are you investing your time on what matters? When you think about your life purpose, does it make you gitty with excitement and make you want to work nonstop? When you are investing time on your passion and purpose, does it seem like time just flies by?

5 Questions To Help You Harness Your Life Purpose

Here are 5 questions to help you harness your life purpose. As you contemplate these questions, think honestly about whether you are truly embracing your passion and purpose to the fullest.

1. Do you recognize what you are good at and what energizes you? 

Many people never find their niche because they avoid analyzing their career objectives. They fall into jobs and never actually ask themselves what they do well. What energizes you? What are you passionate about? What kind of life do you want to lead?  What are you good at that you also enjoy doing?

2.  Do you fully utilize your most-enjoyed skills? 

Many people are stagnating in their jobs. They are capable of doing SO much more, yet they let fear drive them.  Are you investing time utilizing your precious skills? How would you rate your most-enjoyed skills on a scale of 0-10? If you rate yourself above a 6 or 7, fabulous. You can spend time moving that needle up. Be careful not to spend time on things you don’t truly enjoy.

3. Does your work further some interest or issue that you care deeply about? 

Caring is the basis of all purpose. It requires an openness to everything around you. To develop care, you need awareness. When you truly care about something, it’s because something has inspired or motivated you in some way.  Are you compelled to impact a certain population or issue in the world? THIS is a powerful question that will help you move beyond ‘you’ to a larger purpose. This is about how you are leading your life and creating a legacy you can be proud of and one that future generations can carry on. If your work doesn’t fall into the category of an important interest or issue you care deeply about, I encourage you to dig deeper and find it. Through that answer, you’ll discover what fuels you and where your purpose and passion truly is.

YES! LET’S DO THIS.

4. Do you see yourself, through work, as making a difference in the world? 

When people find their work as relatively meaningless, they lose motivation. Your work must offer much more than money and a title. It must allow you to make a true difference in the world.

5. Do you view most days with a sense of enthusiasm? 

When you are serving a purpose larger than yourself, you are more committed and become motivated

When you recognize what you are good at and enjoy doing, when you leverage your strengths, have a purpose larger than you and feel good about the legacy you are creating and the difference you are making in the world, THEN, my beautiful friend, you are truly harnessing your life purpose.

      Indeed, Stacey.It is really easy to get caught up in the day to day hustle and bustle of life that unless you are rooted in your purpose, it’s easy to get sidetracked.

      Thanks for stopping by, Stacey. I agree that the day to day grind can prevent us from truly keeping first things first.

    These are absolutely great reminders. Better know what you want before going there as you can be at a lost. And, one needs to know when and how to pivot if the occasion calls for it.

    This is something I have become highly aware of since changing roles at a university. It’s so important to work within your purpose. But not easy to do if you’re not paying attention to what’s going on in your mind as you’re going about your day. I heard someone say on a podcast, “If you don’t say hell YES to the things you’re doing or saying yes to, then you shouldn’t be doing them.” That has resonated for me.

      Vickie, you raise an excellent point about paying attention to the chatter going on in between our ears. I LOVE the “Hell YES” idea. That resonates with me too.

    Yes, I feel like my work is in keeping with my purpose. It’s a good feeling to know that something that I put out into the world could make a difference for another woman. I would like to spend more time in the creative space rather than the technical side though.

      I hear ya’ about the tech side, Jennifer. I like the technical side of things like I like wearing turtlenecks in Phoenix during the summer… Not so much. I do what I do as well knowing I’m making a difference in women’s lives. Keep making a difference, Jennifer!

    I wake up every day excited to begin my day. I am excited for each new interaction. The possibility of learning something new. I focus on blessing the good things and acknowledging the existence of goodness, that more may come to delight me. I believe that life is meant to be fun, and I get to call the shots. I live by my “why”. What is resonating with why I am here. I am here to facilitate fun in life, seeing perfection and acknowledging the wholeness of others.

    I know I have unique talents (and spiritual gifts) for admin and teaching, so I am moving in that direction. I want to help ‘ladies of a certain age’ because society seems to think women over 50 are useless and can serve no purpose. My ultimate goal is to completely fund a program in the Philippines that feeds 150 children every day and is facilitated by some close missionary friends. It’s a huge goal and it scares me a bit, but I’m taking steps to get there.

      Yay for taking steps towards your purpose, Becky. In my opinion, women over 50 are just getting started with life – lol.
