The pain from your past has uniquely qualified you to serve in the present. Embrace your past struggles, for they have led you to your present purpose.
We spend our whole lives fighting our pain, stifling it, reacting to it. We become a victim of it. Thus, we perpetuate it and make it fester and grow.
The idea of “purpose” has become almost mystical. To demystify purpose consider these common mistakes people make when trying to find and live purpose.
Authentic Purpose comes down to simply this: What makes you truly, deeply engaged, happy, and “in flow”?
You were born for a purpose. God, the universe, all of existence is entirely devoted to helping you discover and live it in its fullest expression.
Authentic Purpose is not about developing or achieving; it is a remembering who we are and always have been. It is a coming home to ourselves.
Living purpose is a petty struggle for the ego, but not living purpose is pure agony for the soul. What feels like a burden to the ego is bliss for the soul.
In life we often strive for flashy plays, while ignoring the fundamentals. We yearn for the limelight, without working in the shadows.
Traumatic events, rather than crippling us, can actually strengthen us and help us grow. And what determines our response to trauma is our sense of purpose.
You don’t need the blazing fire of passion to succeed. But the glimmering light of curiosity is absolutely indispensable.
