Your purpose is profound. Do you know what it is?

It’s no accident that you were born where and when you were born, to the people who brought you into this world, or that you are right here right now. You were born for this specific time. You have something that the world needs. YOU MATTER.

Your job is to discover your purpose and to live it to the best of your ability. To find it, let's look at the clues.

There are your personality traits, your character traits, your intelligences (yes, you have more than one type of intelligence), your natural talents, your learned abilities, your education, your great experiences, your painful experiences, what you can do for others, your perspective, your opinions, your beliefs, your values and so much more.

No matter what has happened to you or how someone may have hurt you, no one can steal your purpose, meaning, and destiny from you. You still have it. And as long as you're still breathing, you can still find it and fulfill it. It's never too late!

There is nothing more attractive than people who are confident in who they are--people who are comfortable in their own skin. They're not trying to be someone else or compete with anyone. They are originals, not copies. They aren't trying to be better than anyone else, and they know that no one else is better or more important than they are. They know who they are and what they're good at. They also have a healthy understanding of those areas at which they aren't particularly gifted.

Confident people are attracted to, and surround themselves with, people who are good at those things at which they are not naturally gifted, and rather than being jealous, they recognize and celebrate those who have gifts and talents that they don't possess.

People who know their purpose and understand the meaning and significance of their lives are determined to be the very best version of themselves that they can be. They live purposefully, peacefully, and joyfully. There is no need for drama. This doesn't mean that there aren't challenges. It means that regardless of what happens, they maintain their peace and they make the best of every situation they face.

You may be questioning the veracity of all this if you were born into a family that didn't treat you well. Or you didn't get the education you wanted. Or you were from the wrong side of town. Or you're with people who are holding you back. Or, or, or ...

You are not randomly in the wrong place. You've learned something from every experience and from everyone with whom you've been in relationship (good or bad). The combination of what you have seen, heard, and what you know is unique in all the world. Others may have had similar experiences, but their perspective and what they learned from those experiences are different from yours.

Purposeful living leads to joy

Whatever your purpose and the meaning of your life, you are here to affect positive change in the world. We're here to be a catalyst for improvement in the world. And the maximum good we can do is through finding and fulfilling the purpose for which we were born.

Find your reason for being alive, do it to the best of your ability, and maybe even to the exclusion of all else, and you’ll find yourself living the life you were born to live. The funnest part of all this is that you will experience a sense of excitement, happiness, fulfillment and contentedness that you may not have ever thought possible.

If you're not sure how to find your unique purpose, join us at an upcoming Find Your Purpose Women's Retreat (sorry guys--your turn will come). I know it's difficult to get away for 2 1/2 days, but trust me, the investment you make during our time together will reap a lifetime of rewards for you and for everyone within your influence.

In the meantime, take a listen to the FIND YOUR PURPOSE podcast, in which myself and my friend, certified life coach, Jenny Christiansen, help you uncover the clues to your purpose. You can find the podcast at and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
