Purpose! Are you living a life of purpose? Do you know what your purpose is? I’ve wondered what my purpose in life is supposed to be. I couldn’t figure it out.

I wasn’t fulfilled in my career. I wasn’t happy. I didn’t feel satisfied. I didn’t feel I was making an impact. Why? I wasn’t really doing what I was passionate about.

I started thinking, after reading Jeff Goins’ book, The Art of Work, about what I liked to do. What was I doing when I was the most happy at work.? I’ve had a lot of careers in my long life. I was happy in some, not in others. What was I doing when I was the happiest?  I realized that I was happiest when I was

  1. Training / Teaching people
  2. Doing Public Speaking
  3. Motivating people
  4. Networking in business

Those four skills and areas were what I had a passion for. When I was doing them, I was happy. I was having fun, not working. I needed to be doing this to be happy, satisfied and fulfilled. These were what I was passionate about. When I look at Bishop TD Jakes’ quote, I see he was right. If you find your passions, it will lead you to your purpose. I believe my purpose in life is to inspire people, to provide inspiration to at least one person per day. If I can do that, I will be successful I will be fulfilled.

If you don’t know your purpose, what are you passionate about. You should do what I did. Sit down and think about when you were the happiest. What made you excited to wake up in the morning? What kept you awake at night? What made you happy?

Like Bishop Jakes says,

If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.
