In a recent blog post, John Maxwell speaks about finding your life’s purpose. He says that many people come to him with the question, how do I find my life’s purpose. His reply is, “If you want to discover your purpose, two things: what are you passionate about and what are you good at?”. Your passion and love of what you do can sometimes lead you to your purpose, but what you are good at, “your giftedness”, will always lead you to your purpose.
You have been given infinite gifts, and you are unique in this entire universe in those gifts. Your journey is one of joyous and exciting discovery to find them in each moment, each minute, each day helping you to understand who you are in your magnificent journey of becoming… of finding and living your purpose. It is all there already inside of you. Find them through others in their beautifully diverse views of the world, their unique gifts. Find them in pushing your boundaries and taking daring and bold challenges. Find them in quiet moments of reflection.
Buddha wrote, “Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it.” May you hear Oprah Winfrey’s words quietly echo in your ears as a gentle reminder on your magnificent journey, “There is no greater gift that you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.”
Have a beautiful day, a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and a magnificent week!!!
