Discover your purpose and passion to live a whole-hearted and healthy life.
Why is purpose and passion so important to your overall wellness?
Because when we live authentically, according to our values, and for our purpose, work doesn’t feel like work.
We wake up inspired for the day and for the impact, whether large or small, we are making on the world around us.
Our work takes up a significant portion of our time, energy, and life and therefore if we do not enjoy what we are doing, it’s a long run to retirement.
Discovering your purpose and living with passion enables you to enjoy the journey, the here and now, no longer waiting for retirement.
Some questions to ask yourself and reflect on in a quiet space to connect you with your calling are:
What wrongs are you wanting to make right?
What is your favorite thing to do?
What activity makes you feel in connection with yourself and others?
What is your struggle and your story and what would others learn from it?
What brings you joy and fulfillment?
If you could wake up tomorrow and time, money, education, all of it wasn’t a factor, what would you be doing?
These are just a few questions I explore with my clients who are ready and willing to start fulfilling their purpose.
Once you have decided what you are passionate about and what your purpose might be, its time to develop plans and begin taking action to help you get there.
Start with a vision and work your goals backwards to where you are today!
A career change, even when chasing your dreams, can be terrifying.
You are in transition, meaning you do not know what will happen and how it will all work out. This experience can create feelings such as fear, anxiety, worry, second-guessing and so much more.
Enlisting in a counselor or coach as a guide through your process can be immeasurably helpful for the discovery, planning, doing and processing parts of all of this.
Take care of yourselves and therefore each other,
