I really believe that finding our purpose and living in it, is the most important thing that we can do in our lives'. I also think that it is a journey and that for some of us we don't inherently know what our life calling is and need to work to uncover it. When it comes to this, I believe that making a decision is the first step in the process. I find a lot of us are paralyzed with overthinking, we know we are not happy where we are but we don't know where we want to go and so we continue with the same routine day by day just going through the motions. But, if we change nothing, nothing changes. And so, with that said, make a decision, any decision, it doesn't have to be the right one. Has real estate, baking, painting, entrepreneurship, coaching, cooking, accounting, you name it, always interested you? Than make a decision to jump in and commit to diving deep into that subject. Learn about it, start the thing, do it all before you are ready and you will learn as you go. Then over time you will be able to identify that this is the thing that really fills you up and you want to dedicate your life to it, or it is not. Even if it is not, then you have learned new skills but most importantly that this isn't your calling and then you can move onto the next thing.
Every time you make a decision and go all-in you are learning about yourself and growing as person all while on the path to finding your purpose. Sometimes you actually need to grow your interest in a given field and work developing it before it becomes your purpose as we cannot expect that for everyone that it will just fall in your lap. You also need to consider that as you evolve as a person so may your purpose and so it is really all about a journey of growth. All the time we have wasted, trying to think ourselves into finding our purpose is another day lost not taking any steps in any direction. You need to try it, you need to live it, it can not all be done in your head. So, decide. Today, make a decision on one thing that you are going to pursue with all you have and go for it.
To help get you started I have rounded up some of the best videos on the subject of purpose to hear different perspectives, get you motivated and learn from those who are living in theirs. If you do nothing else, please watch the first video, it is only 4 minutes long and I think it will change your life and get you to take that first step!
Please let me know down in the comments what is one decision that you are going to make today as you look to discover your purpose? Remember, you are only one decision away from living the life of your dreams!!!!!!
