Living with Purpose: How it Changes Everything

Finding your purpose can be the big thing that changes your life.

It’s not a magical cure-all for the things that maybe are not so good in your life right now, but it can turn your attitude, your motivation, and your energy right around.

It can be the secret sauce that helps you make those major shifts to upgrade your life and help to achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Here are four ways your life can change, once you commit to making your own roadmap to your best life.

  1. You’ll Have Abundant Energy

Motivational poster What Fuels YouWhen you know your life purposes, and you’re committed to going after it, your energy and motivation will soar. You will have a reason to bounce out of bed every morning. Instead of your checklist feeling like a bunch of chores, they will become the stepping stones to achieving your goals.

If you’re usually a couch potato, even going to the gym or for a run makes more sense. You want to be in the best possible shape to be the best possible you!

  1. You’re More Engaged

Living with purpose means that life is more exciting. You have more drive, and you are more engaged with life than ever before.  There’s no reason to hold yourself back or put off doing the things you want to do. Knowing your purpose helps you align everything and focus on what you want in your life. You’re less likely to agree to things that don’t fit with your purpose or to put off following your dream

  1. You Will See More Opportunities

Finding your purpose can help you switch up your ‘life glasses’ – not to rose-colored glasses, but to ones that focus on the opportunities all around you.

When you know what you want, things will fall into place, your expectations will change, and you will know which opportunities to go for and which are merely distractions. Instead of your dream being ‘one day maybe,’ it’s front and center. And you’ll be tuned in to look for the synchronicities that life puts in your path.

Even before you have achieved your goals, simply knowing you’re set on the right path makes you more contented and grateful for the abundance that is already in your life.

  1. Your Purpose Creates Your Dream

Once you know your purpose it’s easy then to formulate the grand, big, hairy dream that fulfills your burning purpose. From your dream arises your goals –what part of the dream do you want to work on first? From that, you devise your action plan of small daily steps that moves you to achieve your goal.

  1. Your Guiding Star

Your life purpose keeps you on track. Does this decision, or action, align with my purpose? If it is yes pursued it, if no, don’t waste valuable time on it.

“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it.”

Living with Purpose: Next Steps

To enjoy living with purpose we need to take a journey into ourselves.

What is your reason or purpose in life?

These three elements determine how you will live that life intentionally.

  • Your purpose in life
  • The values you hold most dear
  • The reason you do anything
