I have purpose!

Your: gifts + passion + values = purpose.

  • Your gifts are not just your skills and talents, but what you love to do.
  • Your passion is something for which you feel a deep curiosity and interest.  
  • Your values include your beliefs and what you consider to be most important.

When you can identify those three aspects of your identity, you will have a better sense of how you can maximize your sense of purpose in order to improve your health and sense of wellbeing.  

An exercise

Find a time when you can sit down, without distraction, and write honestly. Ask yourself the following questions: 

  • Who am I?
  • What do I have to contribute to the world?
  • If I only had one year left, how would I spend it?
  • What are my core beliefs, morals, and principles?
  • In what moments in the past week have I found myself completely engaged in and focused on what I'm doing, without stress or distraction?
