Welcome! What Does It Mean to Live With Purpose?


 
I’ve been thinking about the idea of living with purpose for quite some time. I felt so strongly about the importance of purpose in our lives that I became a certified Purpose Facilitator, trained by and affiliated with the Purpose Project™, a joint project of the University of Minnesota, Center for Spirituality and Healing and Richard Leider of the Inventure Group.

When we live with purpose, we get more done, we create meaning in our life, and most importantly, we feel happier and more fulfilled. It can have a positive impact on your entire life. That’s why it’s an important topic to discuss. It’s also what inspired me to create a 30 day series of blog posts around it.

Over the course of the month, we’ll take a look at living with purpose and how we can start to live more intentionally. We’ll look at how this will affect all aspects of our lives and I will have lots of hands-on tips and suggestions for you.

SO what does it mean–to live with purpose? Simply put, it means that you know what you’re doing. You have goals and are passionate about what you do. Instead of simply letting the days pass you by, you work with purpose to make the most from each day.

When you live with a purpose, you are not just existing. When you know exactly what you want to do with your life, you have a clear plan or path. You don’t have to get up each morning and then try to figure out what you will do. You simply dive in and keep working towards the goals you set based on your purpose.

You develop a clear set of core values that you follow, based on your purpose. This will come in handy anytime you have a decision to make. Think of these values as your compass that keeps you on track.

Most importantly though, living with purpose gives you a great sense of self-worth. You know what you’re doing and you’re actively working towards the goals you’ve set for yourself. Not only does this increase your feeling of self-worth and self-confidence, living a purpose driven and fulfilled life will also greatly increase your overall happiness.

In the end, that’s what it’s really about, isn’t it? We all want to live a happy and fulfilled life with meaning. That’s why it’s important to start thinking about living with purpose.
