REIMAGINING MY PURPOSE
REIMAGINING MY PURPOSE
Service is not possible unless it is rooted in love and nonviolence. The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
– Mahatma Gandhi
Our purpose in life is a choice…. to offer our gifts naturally, spontaneously and with grace. It’s important to reflect on those times and experiences when individuals with whom you care about wanted you to share with them. Maybe they were in need and were asking for help.
Think about what you love doing and what you want to share naturally and with ease. What do you want to give others that would make a positive difference for them. What is it that you do naturally, that you would like to give to others?
I firmly believe that we all are uniquely gifted for serving others and in that uniqueness, is a call to action.
If you feel that your ready to reimagine your life purpose, I feel one must consider purpose as an action in the world.
Your reimagined life is what is unique and powerful about you, the strengths, gifts you express naturally and with grace. At this very moment in your life, you have a gift in an area of your life purpose. There is something that you can do that comes from the deepest part of who you are, the rock of your being…the core of your existence, that you actively want to share with others.
This particular gift of your reimagined life is given to you to give away to others. This means “A Call to Action”
As a Professional Executive Leadership Development Coach and Life Strategist, I have had the honor and privilege to listen to hundreds of individuals stories. What I’m sharing with you represents my understanding of what I have learned and experienced about reimagining my purpose in life through those individual stories that have moved into my life. I feel that if were are to live a reimagined life we must:
- Open the door to your story
- Open your gifts, strengths and talents
- Open your curiosity
Each one of us has a natural, built in reason for being and that reason is to create an environment of positive contribution to the world and to give voice.
Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “Many people die with their music still in them.” Our music is a metaphor for the quality or passion around which we choose to express our gifts.
In the last 24 hours:
- When did I express my ability to make a difference?
- How are you choosing to express your gifts in service to the world?
- What gift do people consistently come to you for or ask you for?
- What activities inspired me, or provided me a sense of purpose, meaning, peace, celebration, gratitude, conscious awareness of the realities of my being and its vitality?
As you spend time with one or more of these reflection questions, describe your insights and discoveries and how you will integrate your new awareness of your being. Focus your awareness inside of yourself, to an area where you find calm and ease. Be gentle, locate a positive sensation(s), accept yourself as you are today and take all the time you need.
