You were created for a purpose that only you can fulfill. There is only one YOU and there never has been nor will there ever be anyone exactly like you again. That is how special you are. That is how unique you are.
We have taken a lot of time and you have completed a lot of assessments (Thank you for your patience on those by the way). Hopefully, you know so much more about yourself now and have gained more confidence in who you are and in who God created you to be!
Now it’s time to reflect on what you’ve learned to help you create a Life Purpose Statement. Having a Life Purpose Statement will not only help keep you focused on your goals, but it will also remind you of the positive side of who you are. It will teach you perseverance when you feel like giving up. It will challenge you to stay on the course God has for you even when life gets tough. It will serve as a beacon of hope when circumstances don’t turn out how you think they should. It will help you make decisions that respect your time and honor your gifts, strengths, passions, and abilities.
Here is a short exercise to get your pen writing and your heart thinking about your Life Purpose Statement. What you get will not necessarily be your Life Purpose Statement yet, but it’s going to be close. At our next coaching session, we can review your rough draft and work together on refining it if needed. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
First, remember 3 things:
- Your life purpose does not change with your circumstances–it is not linked to your job, family, money, health, etc.
- You can do your life purpose anytime, anyplace, anywhere–so it is very general and less specific.
- Your statement should be as short and concise as possible and easy to remember/memorize. (It’s ok to have a longer first draft. We can shorten it together.)
Here are some steps to do to begin creating your Life Purpose Statement. Again, we will work together to change and rearrange it into something memorable and powerful for you! (***If there were things in these steps you didn’t learn about yourself, just skip it and go on to the next one***)
