I love Jené Kapela definition about living on purpose! To live life on purpose means people who “set priorities that align with what’s most important to them and make progress each day. They also live a balanced life, meaning the time and energy they invest is spent proportionally on the things that matter most to them. People who live with purpose, live with passion.”
My definition is to take control of your life and to NEVER let life take control of you!
As human beings we often just go with the flow and we hope things will play out in our favor. We rarely go into things with direction or with a plan. For an example, when we get offered a position with a company and they pay us less money than what our skill set matches, we tend to accept it and just hope that one day we will be making our desired pay wage amount.
Instead, we should go into the company with a plan. For an example, you can let the company know you will accept this position for this amount of money, but if they do not increase your pay to your desired amount within x amount of time, you will have to leave the company.
This shows the company that you are not only confident in yourself, but you know what skills you can bring to the company and they will not be sorry for hiring you.
By having that attitude, you take control of your life and you don’t let life take control of you.
Living on purpose means to live a fulfilled life and to do the things that make you happy…no matter what people think. You have a understanding about how precious life is and you take every moment to make sure you are embracing you and your happiness.
We often get stuck in a routine and we forget to live our life. Not doing the things that makes us happy will eventually lead to depression and will have you leading a life full of regrets.
I do not want that for you. I want you to live a full and prosperous life! I want you to write down the person you want to become (do not compare yourself or say you want the life of someone else. This is about YOU) and what makes you happy. When you have your list, I want you to write down one thing you want to do per month and work that list until the end of the year. If you would like to start at the beginning of the year, that is perfectly fine.
Let me know what makes you happy and what is getting in the way of you reaching your goals/dreams.
