How to find your "WHY?"

The theme for my week is purpose....Why am I here and what do I do with that? It is no secret that we all are alive for a reason. We all are here to find and define that reason, whatever it may be. But, for some, it is extremely difficult. In this blog, I am going to tell you 4 ways to define or find your individual purpose.

  1. Become self aware. Finding your purpose means knowing or finding out who you are. Many of us have a purpose, often and sadly defined by a tragic moment. Those with outstanding drive and purpose, usually develop it from a tumultuous past or trying to help someone else who suffered from a traumatic past/present life.

"Use your pain as power"

Our purpose becomes defined when we think of the way we want to help others. Your purpose is not to be defined by your job title, but the reason behind WHY you chose this specific career. A mechanic may like to fix cars, but his purpose may be because he finds fulfillment in helping those that cannot help themselves in an avenue that he has expertise in. If you fail to define your purpose, you will never have a passion for your aspirations, and will lack the motivation to see them through.

2. Try different things. How can you know what you like if you're afraid to do new things?

The fear to start anew will hold you back.

You know you don't have it all figured out, because if you did, you would not be looking for more answers on how to fulfill your life and define your purpose. Knowing you don't know is why you should not stop yourself from exploring and figuring things out. I have always had doubts and fears, but for some reason, I always take the brave road. The road less traveled; I think it's the daring, rebellious Leo in me. Despite my fear, I act, and this has led me to many places that I needed to go along my journey to define my purpose.

For example, I went to college for marketing. I knew that whatever I did, I wanted it to be related to business. I chose marketing, because I like the idea of getting others to buy into an idea/brand/product. I knew it was important, because every business needs marketing to be successful, but I did not know what to do with it. I had not fully defined my "why".

As I worked many marketing jobs, I enjoyed the discomfort of throwing myself to the crowd, and offering them a solution to their problem. I enjoyed many of the interactions and met great people along the way, but I was still young and unsure of myself. I lacked confidence, guidance, and a plan for my life. I did not even realize how sales and marketing is mirrored in EVERY business, no matter what a person chooses to do. If you do not have good marketing, meaning if you cannot sale YOURSELF, no one will buy into you. Needless to say, I ultimately moved away from it and jumped into education.

As an educator, I gained more fulfillment, but the issues arose from the lack of freedom and constant unrealistic expectations. And who am I fooling? I wasn't getting paid enough either...but I stayed until the universe forcefully moved me away from that into online entrepreneurship.

Now, my purpose is well defined. I know I am purposely put here as a messenger and to live my life in servitude of building up others. I am, was, and will always be a healer and teacher to the world. I inspire, motivate, and cultivate. That is who I am, and that is what I do.

3. Ask your family and friends what they think you do well. Very simple task that may surprise you. Now, of course your family may be bias, or may not know you as well as you know yourself, but listening to others can, at the very least, give you ideas. When you are stumped at what you believe is your purpose, why not ask those closest to you how they view your importance in their lives. It could possibly mirror to others and fulfill you! When I asked this question, many people say I am a great listener and communicator. They say I am someone they can trust with their secrets, and they trust my advice. I knew then that I was in the right avenue as a teacher/coach/trainer/mentor...I am put here to serve others with information and inspiration. So much so, that others around me could see that too!

4. Last, but not least find a way to incorporate what you are a good at into a career that serves others. Entrepreneurship may not be for everyone, but all entrepreneurs have one thing in common. That is discovering a problem/pain and wanting to create a way to eliminate it for others. Many entrepreneurs do many different things for different reasons, but this is always the sole reason. When you think of your pain, when you think of what you want to fix in the world, and when you couple it with the things you love, you will find your purpose and your passion. You will find your why. And even if you are not an entrepreneur, If you can find a career that does incorporates your purpose, you have still won.
