At times we can spend a lot of our time trying to discover our purpose when indeed our purpose has already found us. This said we can actually bury our purpose in our pursuit for career and ability to live a desired lifestyle.You see purpose does not always equal lifestyle but it does equal fulfilment, inner peace and joy.
These come because we find that our purpose is used to help others or change things around them or us. Finding my purpose in life was really important for me because I had been told a lot of things along my life’s journey that were helpful at the time but did not point me towards fulfilling my purpose. I was told to that going to school and doing well would get me a good job. Good advice but then what is a good job and most of all, ‘why’ would I want that job?
The reality is that we can go along our life doing what others say is good for us but if we don’t have a strong enough reason ‘why’ then we will struggle along and eventually look for something else to do. Finding my purpose in life helped me go after jobs and business opportunities that fulfilled my reason ‘why’.
SO WHAT IS MY REASON ‘WHY’?
I found that I continually wanted to help others do well and become who they wanted to be. This was birthed out of experience and a desire to have equality in this world. In order to see this happen I had to ensure I had the information and education needed to support people along their journey.
