Finding and following your purpose may be just what you need to get your life back in gear. But where do you start? Po Bronson’s What Should I Do With My Life? (Random House) gives some useful guidelines:
TUNE INTO YOUR INNER VOICE and block out everyone else’s, even that of your best friend at times. Give you inner voice power and have faith in your instinct.
IDENTIFY YOUR PASSION
This is a reminder of your authentic self. Acknowledge any lack of fulfilment in your life and pluck up the courage to find your passion.
DISTINGUISH BETWEEN CUROSITY AND PASSION
Learn the difference between them – explore your curiosity and live your passion.
LEARN TO BE
Let who you are (or who you want to be), rather than what you do, guide your choices and decisions.
It uproots you from your comfort zone and makes you take the first step towards your destiny. Embrace change and let it guide you.
Discovering your life’s purpose won’t be easy. The journey will be long and often hard but even the smallest steps will take you closer to it.
