Finding my life purpose was one quest I felt compelled to conquer. So I did it. Eventually. Then I soon found out that fulfilling my life purpose was the next challenge.
When people ask me about their life purpose, I usually say that broadly speaking, our purpose is to love, to serve, and to heal ourselves and others. Applying our life purpose is another matter.
It’s always going to be a challenge, but over time, I get better at fulfilling it. This is how I do it to the satisfaction of my conscience:
- By identifying, managing and supporting an appropriate sense of responsibility in myself and others
- By identifying, managing and supporting appropriate personal boundaries in myself and others
- By identifying, managing and supporting a sense of personal honour and integrity in myself and others
These strategies help to minimise the many ways I tend to sabotage myself, or I sabotage others or they sabotage me. They also help me to maximise my ability to determine my future in a way that is loving and serving and healing for me, and for others.
