EP30: Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness - Living Out Your Purpose Does
Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life—the reasons you get up in the morning. When I was going through burnout, all purpose in my life had been lost. So I went through some self-discovery to find it.
Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction and create meaning. For some people, purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work. For others, their purpose lies in their responsibilities to their family or friends. Others seek meaning through spirituality or religious beliefs. Some people may find their purpose clearly expressed in all these aspects of life.
Purpose will be unique for everyone; what you identify as your path may be different from others. What’s more, your purpose can actually shift and change throughout life in response to the evolving priorities and fluctuations of your own experiences.
Questions that may come up when you reflect upon your life purpose are:
Who am I?
Where do I belong?
When do I feel fulfilled?
What are the benefits of finding your purpose and how do you begin to tap into it? I've got some answers to this week's episode. Take a listen.
