Lets gets started with week#1…
The first part of developing your Dream Plan is to ask yourself,
“What Is My Life’s Purpose?”
At some point in your life you will ask yourself “What is the purpose of my life?” Some people will be able to answer this question immediately, while others will find this question very challenging. If you are the latter, we have some help for you. It’s important to know your life’s purpose because your life will be grounded in a definitive path.
Your life’s purpose will either be unveiled to you through a problem, predicament, or passion. We call it the 3P’s of Purpose.
Find Your Purpose in a Problem
Your purpose can be housed in a ‘problem’ that you may have with something. For example, you could have a problem with the issue of body image in the fashion industry, and create an organization that works as a solution to that problem.
Find Your Purpose in a Predicament
Sometimes you will find your problem in a situation. You may find yourself in a situation that you never thought you would be in, and it will birth your purpose. Or, a situation could happen to someone else and you see and feel an extreme need to solve it for them and for anyone else who finds themselves in the situation.
Find Your Purpose in a Passion
If you ask most major musicians, they feel that their purpose is to entertain. Sometimes your purpose is birthed from your passions in life. The thing about a purpose is that it has to effect other people. It cannot be self-serving. Therefore, if you have a passion that doesn’t bring any benefit to anyone else… it’s not a purpose, but it may help you promote your purpose.
If you can’t determine what your purpose will be just this minute, don’t stress. Your ‘predicament’ or ‘passion’ may arise 3 years from now. But it is important to know where you can find it. Be open to your purpose because, if you let it, it will drive your life.
