So, now that you have those definitions clear in your mind, tell me, in your daily life, what does “help” mean to YOU?
Think about it.
The way you help others is a very personal thing. Remember, it’s part of your path. It's not a detour.
Helping your child prepare for school is part of your life. How you help your child prepare for school is a defining part of your purpose.
Is it all becoming more clear to you now?
Are you ready to continue?
Now that you've had a chance to think about help in your own personal way, let's look at how you have helped others.
Look at your daily life and identify those moments when you helped (the definition that rings true for you) someone or something. When you think about it, it's in almost every action you take every single day.
So, what did you do to help?
What was the action?
If you said, "I encouraged others"?
How did you encourage others?
Did you encourage them by educating them?
By validating them?
By letting them speak?
By listening to them?
What did you do?
How did you help?
This my friend, is the root of your purpose.
Your purpose is how you help. It's in your health, your relationships, your career! It's everywhere!
Your success as a business person, in the end, is fueled by helping others get what they need. Your success as a parent is helping your children achieve their potential. Your success as a spiritual being is helping others reach their spiritual goals. It goes on and on.
So, today you can say, I have identified how I help and because of that I know what my purpose is in life.
Wow! This is a big deal! Great job!
Your life will never be the same!
Be sure to let me know what your purpose is!
Next week we will talk about how knowing your purpose will help you stay on your path toward fulfillment.
