Ever asked yourself; ‘what is my purpose?’

We spoke in our meeting on Friday 6th May about Purpose, which can be defined as:

– the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
or
– a person’s sense of resolve or determination.
Purpose is such a broad term which led to very different and personal experiences based on how each of us look at our purposes in life.

Our first exercise is also one for you to also ask yourself and think about:
  1. What makes you smile? (Activities, people, events, hobbies, projects, etc.)
  2. What are your favorite things to do in the past? What about now?
  3. What activities make you lose track of time?
  4. What makes you feel great about yourself?
  5. Who inspires you most? (Anyone you know or do not know. Family, friends, authors, artists, leaders, etc.) Which qualities inspire you, in each person?
  6. What are you naturally good at? (Skills, abilities, gifts etc.)
  7. What do people typically ask you for help in?
  8. If you had to teach something, what would you teach?purpose0883FB8530.jpg
  9. What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?
  10. You are now 90 years old, sitting on a rocking chair. You are blissful and happy, and are pleased with the wonderful life you’ve been blessed with. Looking back at your life and all that you’ve achieved and acquired, all the relationships you’ve developed; what matters to you most? List them out.
  11. What are your deepest values?
  1. What were some challenges, difficulties and hardships you’ve overcome or are in the process of overcoming? How did you do it?
  2. What causes do you strongly believe in? Connect with?
  3. If you could get a message across to a large group of people. Who would those people be? What would your message be?
  4. Given your talents, passions and values. How could you use these resources to serve, to help, to contribute? ( to people, beings, causes, organization, environment, planet, etc.)pppBYWK2L6BR5.jpg
Now we have the more challenging questions for you…
What’s your purpose? What assignment/s do you have to accomplish on earth? What motivates you?

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21).
