Self-Coaching Guide: What’s Your Life Purpose
This self-coaching guide was created to help you gain clarity around your life purpose. What will bring you the most fulfillment and joy often leads us to our purpose; where our talent meets our passion. This is where life will flow and you’ll experience more ease and enjoyment in your every day.
It’s important to note that this is a BIG question. This guide is intended to begin your discovery process. Depending on what clarity comes through for you today, this may give you some clues that support deeper work or give you the exact insight you need have the lightbulb go off in your head.
This self-coaching guide has three parts.
- The first part is a 1-minute breathing and affirmation exercise to help you become present and create space in the mind.
- Then you will answer the question prompts with the first answers that come to mind.
- Lastly, you have free journaling time to reflect on your answers and move into action.
BREATH: To begin we are going to slow everything way down, starting with our breathing. This is an important part of gaining access to your own insight.
Close your eyes and take 3 DEEP breaths. Breath in counting to 4, hold your breath for 4 and breath out, slowly, counting to 7. Do this three times.
AFFIRM: Say this out loud “The truth of what I’m seeking is within me and I access it now freely without judgment as this is a stepping stone toward creating what I want.”
ANSWER: Answer these questions with the first answers to come to mind. Let them flow and be heard… there is no right answer. Your answers will reflect where you are today, at this moment. See what you can learn from what comes to you. If you find it hard to answer a question ask yourself, “If I knew the answer what would I say?”
The act of writing is important. Write the answers down to these questions, even if it’s on a napkin… pen to paper forces articulation and gets you out of your mind’s negotiation with itself.
When I was little I found myself always wondering about:
If I had to write a book it would be a book about:
How I really want to feel in my life right now is:
When I am living my dream other people benefit by:
When I look back on my life, I want to know that I:
In a dream state, write about your life, as if you’re looking back on it when you’re 70 years old having lived your life’s purpose. What do you see? How did you live? What were you doing? Not doing?
Think about one step you can take toward feeding this curiosity about why you’re here. Keep going down the path, see what stands out to you, what feels like a clue. Save it, then keep going. The answer will reveal itself… or you’ll create it based on what excites you.
