Does finding your life purpose scare and confuse you? I mean where do you start? It all seems a bit overwhelming.. Perhaps it would be much easier to just stay right where you are, play it safe and stay small right? But then at times when your heart and mind are quiet, you hear and feel a still small voice speaking to you saying “You are more than you are right now, come out and play, come out and live a more meaningful and purpose filled life”. But how do you begin to do just that?
Well I am glad you asked because I want to share with you a way you can begin on your adventure to living a more purpose filled and authentic life. Just remember to be kind to yourself along the way. Because Rome wasn’t built in a day… a baby learns to walk by falling down many times and a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.
That said here are 3 steps to help you find and live your life purpose..
1.What Scares You?
The first step is to have a good look at what scares you about finding your life purpose. Does it feel risky? Do you feel vulnerable? What if you fail? What if people laugh at you. If it’s any comfort, these are thoughts and worries that afflict everyone. Don’t worry; you’re not alone.
Start by writing down everything that comes into your head at the thought of finding your life purpose. Don’t filter or critique. Just write what you think. You can use the prompt ‘If I consciously live my purpose, I’m afraid that…’ and see how you go.
Now take a deep breath and respond to a second question “What do the scared parts of me need, to feel supported?”
2.Give Yourself Freedom To Change
Everything in nature changes and grows. It is not normal to stay in the same state or position for a lifetime whether you’re an acorn, a puppy or a person. Embrace the potential of change and personal growth.
Giving yourself permission to change and grow opens you up to limitless possibilities. By saying “YES” to change, you are giving the Universe permission to give you opportunities you may never have dared dream of receiving. Say “YES” and see what happens.
3.Be Bold In Being You
No one in the history of the world has ever been like you. So be bold in being YOU!
You have your own set of talents, skills, passions, and experiences. Only you can make your contribution to the world. So, stop trying to fit in and be like everyone else in the herd. Stop comparing yourself to others and anticipating their judgment of you. The only thing that should give you pause is the thought of wasting all your talent by not shining your light. If you feel shy about launching out on your path, remember no one else but YOU can be your BEST YOU.
Yes always remember..
A Star in the nights sky just shines. It doesn’t compare itself with the other stars around it. Likewise, just be the best version of You and Shine for all the world to See”
Live Like the Master
