If you are an entrepreneur, this is something that you may have already gone through: finding a purpose to your life more generally, but also to your business. You may know several ways and exercises to move forward on the question. You may even have an answer. Or maybe not yet.
If you are not an entrepreneur, you may have thought about this while you spent uncountable hours in front of your computer. Or because you’ve read many self-help books or attended a personal development seminar, or maybe just because it is something that your inner voice has been whispering to you lately: “what is my purpose? What is all this for?”
There are days when you wake up and you feel so happy you have found an answer. Then, you have a shower and doubts find their way back in.
What I have for you today is a very short guide on getting you on track to find your inner purpose. I am not pretending you will have it all figured it out when you finish reading this, however, you will feel clearer and more focused if you get my exercise done
- Get rid of as many negative vibrations as you can. If your workplace or your living room could be a stressful environment, try to go for a neutral setting. Maybe a cozy and not-too-noisy coffee shop in your neighborhood or a park. Personal tip: I love parks with a water source for deep thinking, as water sounds allow me to focus.
- Get into a grounded, heart-centered position.Sit in a comfortable position. Connect to your body. Listen to it.
- If you could design your perfect day, who would be part of it?
Friends? (you don’t have to see them or name them specifically)
A future family?
A future Greyhound dog?
100 employees that respect you?
- Where will you be?
Write down the first thing that comes to mind. Don’t overthink it, don’t try to be over-smart.
- What are you feeling?
How would you feel if I tell you that you are living your perfect day right now. All you have wished for is there for you.
How do you feel?
- What are you doing?Take notes with all that comes to your mind. Be specific.
- Now get back to this hear-centered and positive space. Are you there? Get back in.
Writing things down can be helpful sometimes, especially when trying thoughts around finding your purpose.
