It is my true understanding that everyone has a soul purpose: something for which you were put on this earth to do. But for some it is easier to find that purpose than for others. This can be caused by various reasons, but one of the most common ones is that we stop listening to our inner guidance system that is guiding us on our path. This causes us to detour into activities that aren’t really aligned with who we truly are (our soul).
This leads you to pick a corporate career because that is what you think you should do, or because society or your family expect this from you. Or, you spend your free time doing what others think that you should be doing, though it is not really what you want.
Ignoring your heart’s desires can get you blocked. And because of that, it could be that it is challenging for you to know what your purpose is. What that thing is that you were meant to do. In order to help you find your purpose, I am sharing three questions you can ask yourself that will help you with this.
1. What brings you joy?
What gives you joy in life can be a good indicator of what your purpose is. Your purpose can change during time, but what your purpose will always bring you is joy. So, figure out what gives you joy and why. There might be something in those activities, things or interactions that will help you get closer to your purpose.
2. What are you good at?
The thing you are naturally good at, can be a sign of your soul purpose. I believe that we were born with our talents for a reason: to use them! Figuring out what you are good at, what your talents are, will lead you in the direction that is meant for you.
3. Where do you feel you can add value?
When looking for your purpose you can ask yourself where do you feel that you can add value. The answer can point you in the direction of your purpose.
I have always felt the need to do something about injustice against animals, people and the environment. When I was looking for my lives purpose, this interest was something that I started to explore.
I asked myself how I could add value when it comes to cruelty-free living and sustainability. That is how I got into the field of veganism, fair fashion and conscious living. I started blogging about these topics and with that, I discovered my purpose.
Living consciously gave me a new sense of awareness that helped me heal my youth trauma. That is how I discovered that I want to share this healing power of living consciously with the world. That is how the basic principles of conscious living became a part of my coaching program that will be lounged later this year.
You see, asking yourself where you can add value based of what genuinely drives you, can lead you to your purpose.
