On most trips I’ve taken, when it’s over, there are great memories, pictures, and a refreshed attitude. It’s not much different after the journey to determine your life purpose.
There is excitement watching a client discover her purpose. You can see her face light up and hear her voice raise as she speaks. Those are the clues I look for in our conversations. The repetitive words, the pattern of ideas, the unchanging theme as I ask the same question in a different manner. It’s especially thrilling when she determines her purpose was known years ago, but didn’t understand it or how to approach a plan of action.
A client was adamant about traveling as a purpose. She had incredible enthusiasm as she explained her love to meet people and hear their stories. She had the same stimulating words as she talked about serving senior citizens. She wanted to sit with them and hear about their lives. Put those two ideas together and explore starting a business of taking seniors on travel tours. When your purpose is also your job, that’s the best feeling in the world!
A plan of action, with steps, is provided for 1-2 years, implementing a purpose. These steps include changes to make in physical and emotional health, finances, spiritual connection, relationships and service to others – fixing the excuses we’ve made for not being obedient. It comes with accountability partners to help stay on track.
I love my job! I enjoy giving people a plan that brings peace and meaning to their lives. Overcome fears, grief and excuses that kept them from hearing the voice inside that said, “Go! Take the next step.”
