  • 8 Tips to help find your meaning and purpose in life

    Post by : AdiTheSuccessCoach

One of my clients was asking about finding their purpose in life. I thought well, this is actually at least the 10th time I've helped clients with this so this time, I will share some of my thoughts with all my personal readers and Expatree.

Find your purpose. with

8 Tips to help find your meaning and purpose in life:

1.Identify the activities that are meaningful for you. These are the things that just feel right when you’re doing them, they have purpose and you feel authentic when you’re doing them.

2.Identify the things that you are good at. The things that make you feel at your best when you are doing them.

3.Create a brief statement that ties together what you are good at and what provides you with a sense of purpose. This can be a mission or vision statement. A short sentence, a paragraph or even a mantra.

4.Check how your statement or mantra supports your current direction. Is what your doing in line with this. How much of your daily life is near this?

5.Develop new insights and skills that help you to live closer and closer to your statement or mantra without creating big changes.

I've worked with over 40 clients now, most of them thought they needed to quit their jobs. Many did however many found that quitting wasn't required.

6.Take the time to reflect, savour moments and be 100% present. Recognize that sense of internal fulfillment and calmness when you're clear on your purpose.

Consider mediation. Mediation retreats, Kung Fu/Yoga Camps are a great way to regain balance, composure and reflect

7.Find ways to spend more time doing the things that link to your purpose, or find ways to link what you do to your purpose.

Or monetize your passions and purpose? Can you turn your passion/purpose into a small cashflow system.

8.If still required, then look at creating bigger changes.

It still amazes me how quickly my friends in China quit their jobs. However if you have gone through numerous jobs in a short period of time. Consider speaking to one of coaches today. Perhaps the problem isn't the job, but the thoughts or lack of fulfillment behind the job.

Kindest regards everyone.
I hope this serves you well.
