Finding your place in this world can be tough. It’s so easy to look at others and compare, or wonder how we will ever measure up...well here’s the thing....you won’t EVER measure up to anyone else and do you want to know why?
Because you will never be ANYONE else. You have a set of DNA that not one other person in this entire world of almost 8 billion people shares with you. You have your own perspective and eyes to view life from. You were given a unique combination of gifts, talents, and abilities that only YOU bring to this world.
We all have rough days and sometimes really rough weeks, months, or years. The ones where it feels like we just can’t get a foot hold long enough to climb out of the hole. But those difficult times are what can fuel us to find our purpose, to find how we can reach our greatest potential and serve at our greatest capacity. If we didn’t have those difficult days, we wouldn’t know what it’s like to feel healthy, or full of joy.
There has to be a yin to the yang to make a whole circle. There is no such thing as light without darkness, day without night. Our own personal experiences are what drive our ability to connect with, influence others, and ultimately make a difference.
So how do we dig deep, climb out of the hole and start to make a difference? How do we know what it is we were meant to do, or even how to find our life’s purpose? We can start by taking care of our body and our mind. After all it’s the vehicle we experience every second of every day in for our entire lives. And when we start to take care of our mind, we can ask ourselves 5 simple questions.
I imagine each of these questions as the firm footholds on a ladder that once had none. Once we screw in the footholds we can climb out of that hole so much easier. You may slip and fall but every time you get up, those footholds will be there to help you climb out.
Everyone has a unique way of seeing the world. Discovering what brings you joy in life, and what provides help and service to others is what will help you to discover your true purpose. These 5 questions will help you do just that.
The 5 Questions to Find Your Life’s Purpose:
(In these 5 questions I will give you some tips or more questions to think about. How I would answer the question and how a Lash Artist might potentially answer the questions).
1. Who you are?
(This one is simple, what’s your name?)
Me: My name is Malaena.
Lash Artist: Lashey Lady
2. What do you do?
(What are you good at or where do you want to be in 15 years? What do you want your future to look like? No matter what the age, you can always work toward what it is YOU want to do. And don’t be afraid if it doesn’t look like anyone else’s. Remember, there is nobody else like you!)
Me: I educate and teach…
Lash Artist: I do eyelash extensions...
3. Who you do it for? Who do you serve?
(This could be a specific group of people, a broader audience, your family, your children, your pets...no answer is wrong)
Me: people….but more specifically Lash Artists….
Lash Artist: for anyone...
4. Why do they need it?
(What is the problem that needs to be solved for this specific group of people? Why can’t they live without you and what you are offering).
Me: to recognize how their small actions over time can affect their mental, emotional, and physical health
Lash Artist: to help them feel confident and beautiful...
5. What do the people you serve get out of it, and how will they change?
(How will what you are giving, change the people who come in contact with you? Really how will their life benefit?)
Me: so that they can learn to live their best life, and eventually teach others to do the same.
Lash Artist: So they can see in themselves what the rest of the world does already.
So a Lash Artists potential purpose could be:
My name is Lashey Lady and I do eyelash extensions for anyone; to help them feel confident and beautiful so they can see in themselves what the rest of the world already does.
And when someone asks you what you do, you just say the second half...I help women feel confident and beautiful so they can see in themselves what the rest of the world already does. Wow, powerful right?!
When you really break down each of these steps and come up with your PURPOSE in life, it can always serve as a guide for everything you do. Where you spend your time, how much energy you put into what things. And the good thing is as we learn and grow, your purpose may become even bigger or better.
The important part is to start. Nourish your mind and your soul by screwing in those steps to the ladder, that way they will always be there for you whenever you need to climb out of the hole. Those 5 steps can serve as your strong footholds in life when you feel knocked down.
A life of purpose is worth living, and with these steps it only takes a few minutes to figure it out. It doesn’t have to look like mine or anyone else’s, in fact it shouldn’t. Go be YOU, and make a difference!
Serve those around you with your gifts, create your purpose on purpose right now, and I can’t wait to see what you create.
These 5 steps came from the TedX talk “How to Know Your Life Purpose in 5 minutes” by Adam Leipzig.
