Life Purpose: Discovery Is Not Enough!

So now you know your life purpose… what are you doing with it? How are you using it to move from where you are to where you want to be?

When you finally discovered what your life purpose was it felt so exciting (or did it feel disappointing?), and then you got home and the fear kicked in… it’s too much, too overwhelming…there is no way this is me… nice fantasy but far safer to pretend than to actually move towards it… I’d need to change my job to do that but I can’t,

I need the money…  I don’t have the time to take all that on… and so on.  What do you say to yourself? What are the reasons you don’t embrace your life purpose?

The following is one of my favourite quotes of all time…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear s that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, what are you not to be? You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

An Excerpt from A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson

I share Marianne’s words because she voices my beliefs so succinctly, plus she writes so beautifully! If you glossed over it please re-read it and take in her words and concepts, really take them in, let them soak into your subconscious.

90% of our actions are governed by our subconscious, our automatic behaviours. It takes time and conscious effort to
change our behaviours, especially if we are fighting against underlying beliefs we don’t even realise we have until we actually think about them. A typical one is that we believe we are not that special, not worthy, not deserving, not that skilled… If you feel that way underneath there is a very good chance you will

subconsciously self-sabotage. In life we will always get what we expect. You

need to change what you believe is possible  to change your results. Start by

looking at your life purpose to think about what might really be possible for


If you keep doing the same thing, you’ll keep getting the same


It’s time to ACTIVATE your Life Purpose.  It’s time to

INTEGRATE it into your life.  It’s time to LIVE it!

ACTIVATING your life

purpose is simply taking it on board, accepting it and beginning to develop a

conscious way of living, being conscious of what is going on around you and how

you are responding. It is not about judging yourself or beating yourself up

about what you do, it is just about noticing what you do.


your life purpose is about allowing your life purpose to inform your actions.

Here is one set of steps that are key to begin life purpose


  1. Uncover your life purpose.

    Know what it is.  Know what will give your life the meaning and fulfilment you

    seek. Know what you are aiming for. (If you haven’t done this already see below

    on how to).

  2. Understand your Achilles’ heel.

    Understand what it is that hold’s you back, get’s in your way or stops you.

    This is your Life Lesson, the core basis for the various challenges you keep

    coming up against.

  3. Learn to recognise your Life

    Lesson when it shows up.

  4. Know what action you

    need to take in response to the way you Life Lesson shows up.

  5. Now you know what it looks like, be conscious, look out for your

    Life Lesson and when it does show up, STOP. Do not fall into the

    subconscious response you have used in the past. Be conscious, feel the

    fear and take the action you need to anyway.

It is

your habitual response to you Life Lesson, the challenges you encounter, that is

what keeps you stuck. It’s the underlying beliefs you hold about what is

possible for you that keeps you stuck.

Belief change feels difficult,

mostly because you can’t decide what belief to replace it with. What I suggest

is that you think about what the fundamental belief is that keeps you stuck  and

then ask yourself what you would need to believe to be able to overcome what

holds you back. Some examples of beliefs that hold you back are: I don’t have

enough money. I’m not good enough. I’m no good at communicating. What will

people think? I don’t have enough time.

Here is a very effective group

of questions I picked up from David Shepherd (The Performance Partnership) that

is really useful in helping you to change your beliefs:

Questioning a belief you hold:

  1. How would you know if it were NOT true?
  2. For whom is it not


  3. When was it not true for you?
  4. In what way

    do you KNOW it is not true now?

  5. What do you WANT to believe


  6. In what ways do you know what you want to believe is

    already true?

I also like David’s follow-up comments:

“Reasons not to what you really want to do = excuses. Successful people don’t

allow themselves excuses. Don’t allow yourself to believe yours or anyone

else’s bullshit!” That one makes me laugh out loud, mostly at


So to LIVE your life purpose you really need to believe in it, to

believe that your life purpose belongs to you and that you really can create a

life that honours your purpose, that honours the essential you, a happy,

fulfilling life because you deserve it!

It isn’t enough to know your

life purpose, you need to LIVE it too!

How are you expressing your life

purpose today?
