Finding your Purpose to Lead and Taking Actions

Updated on November 7, 2017

Everyone has a purpose on this journey that we call life. Finding one's purpose requires putting energy and effort into your own life. An excellent way to start is by listening to your inner voice for guidance. Sometimes not listening and following your inner voice can be the cause of your deepest suffering. You will never be at peace with the choices you have made and you will forever questioning yourself. "if I had just listened to that little voice inside, I would not be in this situation right now." Life is a journey and it is the experiences that happen throughout that we endure that make it purposeful. Acceptance and self-awareness play major roles in finding your purpose. Once you have explored all the possibilities of a situation and you cannot find a solution, don’t be afraid to surrender and not be attached to the outcome. Just let it go.

At the age of five, I knew I had a purpose. I understood that I was different in a spiritual way from all the other children and adults I was surrounded by. I was always searching for something more, something higher than what seemed in front of me. I felt as though I had a connection to the universe that I could not explain. As a child and even to this day, I ask myself the question; what is my purpose? By the age of fourteen, I was certain that my career goal in life was to become a child psychologist. Somehow my journey professional career would be as a child psychologist. Somehow my journey took me on the path of becoming a school counseling/mental health therapist. A career that I am deeply passionate and committed to. Caroline Myss, states “everyone has a purpose in life that is right for them. However, most importantly, we must have no judgments, no expectations, and give up on the need to know what happens tomorrow.” Live for the present. Today, right this minute is what is important.

Knowing, understanding and accepting one's purpose allows you to lead your life with authenticity of being who you are. One of my favorite quotes comes from Marianne Williamson, "Our deepest fears is not that we are inadequate, Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves. "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You playing small doesn't not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence literates others."

I believe it is time for all of us to be awakened. Find your purpose, believe in yourself. Have empathy and compassion. Lead with integrity and be flexible. Be passionate. Don’t sit idly by, take action and help make this world a better place. There has to be more, this can’t just be it.
