What Is My Purpose Here?
Getting clear on what your unique purpose is can be the catalyst to living a happy, fulfilled life of abundance, choice, and expansiveness.
When we share what we were brought here to give, we are in alignment with our highest, most powerful selves.
But most people are unclear about what their purpose is. They live their lives dealing with whatever is handed to them.
They do fun things but not as much as they like because they don’t have the money, or the time.
They may have little victories here and there, but they may never truly go for it and create a life that that really lights them up.
We’re all born with unique and valuable gifts to share with the world.
Once we figure out what ours are, and decide to live our lives putting them to use, that’s when we really start living!
Living a life on purpose is available to everyone.
So if you’re struggling or settling, or completely confused about what you’re supposed to do with your life, know that the answer is already here. You just need to get some clarity first.
1. Be the Alien
Imaging that you’re an alien floating around in outer space and you suddenly swoop down to Earth and inhabit your own body.
As the alien, everything about your life is new to you. Look around… what do you see?
What is this person who you’ve inhabited so obviously awesome at? What do they have the most fun doing? What connections do they have? What resources and opportunities are available to them?
As the alien, to whom everything is new and exciting and there’s nothing at risk and no past to lug around, what are you going to do with this incredible new life you’ve stepped into?
How are you going to use this body and this existence to create something fabulous and awesome starting right now?
2. Take the First Right Step
Just get started. Instead of wasting hours and days and years trying to figure out your perfect next move, just DO something already.
We have all kinds of excuses and what-ifs running around our brains, but get out of your head and take action.
You don’t have to know exactly where it’s going to take you, you just need to start with the one thing that feels right and keep following the right-feeling things to see where they lead.
3. Do Your Best Wherever You Are
Once you take that first step, it is quite possible that you won’t land in your dream situation right away.
You might land on a stepping stone.
It could be good or bad. But wherever your first step lands you, if you want to keep moving forward appreciate wherever you’re at instead of feeling ashamed or grouchy or impatient about it.
Lean back, relax, and be grateful that you’re living on purpose, that you’re hanging out in a high frequency, and that everything you need is zooming towards you.
4. Don’t Reinvent the Wheel
Look around and see what other people out there are doing.
Whose life makes you jealous? What things are people doing that you would love to do? Who do you think is the coolest person ever?
You don’t need to invent your ideal life from scratch, you just need to figure out what makes you feel alive.
So if what someone else is doing sparks your interest, take notice. It could mean that your calling has something in common with theirs.
Get specific about the things in their lives that turn you on.
Is it because they get to travel the world? Is it that they have a solid routine? Is it that they have no routine? Is it that they work alone? That they get to be outside all day?
The more specific you get, the easier it will be to create a picture of what you want.
5. Don’t get Caught Up in the Hype
While there are those people who’ve always known exactly what they want to do, there are many more of us out there who spend most of our lives, if not all of our lives, wandering around looking under rocks and behind trees for who we are.
Let yourself off the hook if you don’t have that one, big, perfect thing that you know you came here to do.
Follow what feels good in the moment, every moment, and it will lead you through a most excellent life.
6. Listen to Your Intuition
If you really want to get in touch with who you are and what you love to do, and who you love to do it with, dedicate some time to turning in to your intuition.
One of the best ways to do this is to spend five minutes of quiet, by yourself, every day.
When you sit quietly and ask, you get an answer… Eventually.
Stick with it, be patient and wait to hear from your inner guidance.
You have all the answers you need, you just need to give them the chance to get through to you.
7. Follow Your Fantasies
What do you fantasize about when you’re staring out the window of a train, or before you go to sleep at night?
Tap into what brings you great joy instead of what you think you need to do to survive.
If you had an unlimited supply of cash, what would you spend your life doing?
Our fantasies are the most revealing peepholes into who we are and what we think is awesome.
No matter how out-there and ridiculous they may seem, they mean something to us, and usually represent our biggest and best versions of ourselves.
What if you had the audacity to leave your excuses and your shame about wanting to be huge and fabulous behind and really went for it all out?
What if you decided to do the most outrageous, most exciting thing you ever dared fantasize about, regardless of what anyone, including your terrified self, thought?
THAT would be living!
