Purpose and Meaning
Being aware of what drives you and why you do what you do is fundamental to human existence. Purpose is about using your strengths to serve others. It is about what you give more than about what you get. It is about identity and belonging, about having meaningful relationships and feeling appreciated and about appreciating others. What stories do you tell yourself about your life? By shifting our perspective, we can achieve a greater sense of purpose without actually changing what we do.
What are your strengths and how do you choose to manifest them in you life? Are you happy with your relationships and if not, what can you do about them? What is your ‘zone’; moments when you lose yourself in doing what you love the most?
Knowing your purpose creates grit and resilience and the ability to deal with the challenges which come your way. Finding out what truly is important to you is like having a compass to navigate stormy seas of life: you always know what is your true north.
