Pursuit of Purpose: Session 5
Hey pursuit of purposers... Can I just tell you that I was just working on my fifth edit on my next PoP installment when my phone (which was plugged in btw) died and I lost my work.
I need to tell you this because my fear is that you think I have forgotten or don't care, or that I've asked you to join me on something that I don't intend to finish.
Which is so not the case.
So, here's how we're doing today's post.
I'm going to give you some resources, and I want you to follow up on one. Pick one, read it, listen to it or sign up for it ... And learn with me.
"I pursue knowledge like others pursue success." -- Keith Kochner
I am convinced that we will never discover, or be equipped to pursue our purpose, on our own.
We will always need the knowledge and mentorship others.
Here are some of my recent favorites:
"The Dream Giver" -- book by Bruce Wilkinson
"Make It Happen" -- book by Lara Casey
"Mentorfish" -- a personal development and mentoring subscription bringing knowledge and insight to you in 15 minute segments every day. Totally worth
the $9.90 a month subscription cost
Go for the Gold call with Sarah Wilson
(Ok, this was created for people in Arbonne, but trust me when I stay this is an amazing call that you just need to listen to. She covers so much about purpose in this 30-minute recorded call ... You'll want to listen again and again.)
After listening, reading, subscribing, or whatever you decide ... Go ahead and blog or journal through these questions:
If I could describe my most purposeful year, what would it look like?
What is one thing I can do differently every day to move me closer to my purpose?
If I had all the money in the world to give away, what cause or organization would I give it to?
What is my "why" that makes me cry? What gets me out of bed, breathing in, breathing out, moving forward, and something I couldn't live without?
Last, but not least... Create your mission statement... A one-sentence directive of your life's purpose. Write your mission statement on your mirror, the refrigerator, steering wheel of your car... Anywhere your eyes fall to remind you of your goals. (They must be specific ... Not "my mission is to change the world.")
That's it. Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
