This is a powerful question that helps to give it some background:
From childhood, we’re programmed with the expectations of parents and role models. These expectations give us something to look up to, something to aim towards. But they also blind us to our own true path.
For example, parents often encourage a path of safety. They push kids towards a degree and a lucrative career. For some people, this road leads to success and satisfaction. For others, it’s a narrow path that leads to frustration.
Of course, parents just want what’s best for their kids. And it’s hard to let down the people who care about us...that’s how expectations lead us in the wrong direction, going to great lengths trying to fit someone else’s version of success.
Eventually, this leads to seeking validation and comparing yourself to others, which in-turn leaves us feeling low, confused, even angry and frustrated. It leaves us feeling defeated, unsatisfied and ultimately... unhappy.
So HOW does one FULLY step into the path of their true life purpose?
We tend to talk about purpose as though each soul has a singular, eternal, reason for being here. This can actually cause more stress in truly understanding yourself as it almost feels like "finding a needle in a haystack."
Consider a different approach — one in which you don’t have to chase after a mysterious unknown. Instead, think of finding purpose like an archaeological dig. It’s an expedition to uncover parts of yourself that have been buried.
We’re going to find out what your heart wants. We’ll start by looking for the clues that you already have in your own mind. Then we’re going to take small steps to build a life that aligns with those secret desires. To learn how to believe in yourself, so that you can have the courage to embrace your aspirations and make them real. That’s how you find enough excitement and purpose to last a lifetime....
