How My Purpose Became Clear

My life’s purpose has never been clearer than it is today. Ever since I accomplished a major personal goal some time ago, my purpose has become clearer every day that I work towards a new goal. When my purpose is clear it gives me gratification that satisfies the soul. I want you to feel the same.

So I’m sure you’re asking how my purpose became clear. It’s really simple. I focused on myself. That’s all. Focusing on me rather than others was something I never did until my major milestone, but you can begin focusing on you at any time with three simple steps.

  1. Be Grateful – To be grateful is something that isn’t new. I’m not recreating the wheel for good reason. Gratefulness comes from humility appreciating everything you’ve been given, earned and found along the way. When you’re grateful for those prized possessions, you’ll take care of them. If not, those items won’t last. Your purpose is surrounded by those things you’re grateful for and take care of.
  2. Find What Gives You Joy – Finding what gave me joy was harder than I thought. I’m not talking about things that made me happy. The sense of joy is the feeling that makes you smile from ear-to-ear instantaneously. Your purpose should be no different. This is what makes you “go” and passes the time faster than you realize.
  3. Breakthrough Every Day – Having a breakthrough every day is really important. This isn’t the equivalency of breaking boards and skydiving. I’m referring to shrinking your comfort level bubble and doing something of action towards completing a personal goal. Oddly enough, finding your purpose doesn’t come organically. Therefore, you have put in the work every day to stay consistently focused on your purpose.

One last thing, this is all for you. It can be what you want it to be. What it can’t be is for someone else to complete. The work must be done by you. So make yourself happy by doing what’s on your heart.

I write this because my business is personal. My struggles are for your gain. No strings attached.
