Living with purpose is life changing and creates a positive impact.

Connecting with your purpose can be a daunting challenge as well as a fulfilling accomplishment. It takes discipline and commitment to achieve this discovery about yourself.

How can you begin to determine your purpose?

Where would you begin? The first effort would be to determine what drives you. What has brought pain that you can no longer tolerate? Second, discover what energizes you. Third, what sacrifices are you willing to make? These show you that you are closer to your purpose. Fourth, who do you want to help? Who do you want to inspire? This more clearly defines your purpose and your why. Fifth, design your plan on how you want to help them. Take action and apply your passion to your purpose. Envision your results, and never give up.

Live mindfully. Breathe to be connected to the present moment, and thus your true purpose.

For purposeful living, practice these steps.

  1. Honor yourself with self-care.
  2. Assume an attitude of gratitude and thankfulness.
  3. Practice stillness. This connects you to inspiration.

~Enjoy the power of connecting with your purpose~
