How To Identify Your Purpose Lead with Purpose

    • Entrepreneurship

On this episode of the Lead With Purpose podcast host, Tze Ching Yeung, talks about how most of us struggle to know what we want to do with our lives at some point. What is the purpose of life and why are we here?
KEY TAKEAWAYS
When one has a clear purpose, we do tend to be more determined in our goals and the things that we want to do. How well do you understand your purpose? Do you stop sometimes to question yourself and what your purpose is? We should take some time off before we do a lot of these exercises, to settle our mind and get into a peaceful state where your mind is not buzzing, because it can be busy to answer these questions. It’s really important to quieten down and listen to our hearts and emotions and what we feel, and acknowledge everything that we’re grateful for, There should be no stress when asking yourself what your purpose is because there is not right or wrong. It’s about asking the right questions. Explore the things you like to do. What do you enjoy doing? Think back over the last week, month or year, when did you last do something that you really enjoyed doing, that brought a smile to your face and enjoyment or satisfaction to you while you were doing it? What fills you with a sense of happiness and fulfilment?  Purpose is usually not something you love doing, or that you’re good at – that’s a passion, it needs to be something that you are doing not just for yourself, but you’re doing for others or to contribute in some way to improve the lives of others or the world. This helps you get more clarity in what really matters to you. BEST MOMENTS
‘Finding your purpose is a way to impact the world in a way that fulfils and satisfies you. You need to align it with your dreams, values and actions.’‘It’s hard for us to listen to ourselves when our minds are too busy. We’re all busy doing stuff all the time.’‘We weren’t born with values or beliefs, most of it was nurtured or created through experiences. Our lives are based on values and beliefs, and they help build our perception of the world and determine what we do and how we act, so it’s important that we identify what they are and if they are true to us, especially if they were taught to us by others.’‘What causes matter to you? Who would you like to help, and why?’
