Instant Purpose Alignment

Over the past decade or so, I’ve read & heard & thought a lot about this idea of “Life Purpose”…

The IDEAL: Spending every waking minute dwelling in your purpose, and eliminate all “non-purpose” activities from your life.

Yet, if you perceive yourself and your life in terms of this black & white, all-or-nothing perspective on Purpose…

If you clearly define your life’s purpose, then look at how much you’re not living it…

It’s easy to feel like you’re failing at life.

I’ve struggled with this. As I’m sure ANYONE who’s ever thought about the concept of “purpose” has…

I believe that YES, it’s important to have a sense of Purpose in life… and to hold on to a vision of the IDEAL version of your life…

But what I’ve found to be useful — to provide me with the most joy, fulfillment, and patience each and every day…

Is to look at what I’m doing with my life, and identify how it’s already in alignment with my Purpose.

For me, it comes down to “generalizing” your purpose a little bit…

Instead of identifying “Purpose” as a specific action or a specific achievement…

What if Purpose is simply a way of Being?

What if Purpose is not what you do, but how you do it? (And how you feel while you’re doing it?)

Now you’re playing a whole different ball game.

So tell me (or don’t, as long as you tell yourself)…

What’s your Greater Purpose in Life? …

& without changing your schedule, your vocation, your responsibilities, or anything else…

How can you Live That Purpose TODAY?
