Finding Your Life’s Purpose Part 2

June 6th, 2011, bySean Nixon

In my earlier post, I wrote about finding one’s purpose in life. Are you brave enough to search for and live out your life’s purpose? If so, use these tips as a guide to find your life’s personal calling:

6. Listen to your inner voice. What’s that tiny voice inside of you telling what you to do? Have you been ignoring it? Don’t do that! That voice inside your head is your compass. It was designed to help you navigate life and keep you on the path to your own personal greatness. It’s high time you started listening to it.

7. Remain focused. It is essential in any plan to remain on target in meeting your goals. Like anything worth having, it takes time and preparation in order to develop them fully. Many of us make the mistake of starting something, but never quite finishing. Make the decision to remain consistent in developing yourself and searching for your purpose.

8.Invest in yourself. This may mean reading more books on empowerment, conducting a thorough self inventory, or simply giving yourself more time for introspective thinking. Whatever the case, make sure that you’re putting time and energy in y-o-u! You’ll be glad you did.

9. Be fearless. Speaking honestly, this one may take some work.  Self confidence always seems to be in short supply when going out into uncharted territory, but a confident spirit can tackle almost any challenge so long as you’re willing to persevere, be patient and above all else, proactive.

10. Be open minded. As strange as it may sound, you may find out that your purpose and gift is best used in an area you wouldn’t normally gravitate to. Sometimes we get caught up in things like professional titles and things that at the end of the day don’t mean much. Part of the reason we fight for those things is because we all want to be recognized and appreciated and validated for who we are. If you’ll allow yourself the opportunity to open yourself up to new experiences and new opportunities you may find out that the validation and appreciation you seek is right there.

Simply put, your life’s purpose is certainly worth the journey of exploration, so why not give it your best shot?

    These are powerful guidelines to live by. One has not truly lived if they haven’t examined themselves and apply these principles. I believe that doing this will guarantee a wider and brighter future. Good stuff!!
