How to Connect To Your Purpose

Back to Blog

How do you connect to your purpose?  This is a great question and one I ventured off to answer about three years ago for myself.  Unfortunately, the question itself is a bit overwhelming.  The first step in the process is to engage in the current impasse that you may be facing today.

One book that has been very helpful to me has been Wayne Dyer’s “The Power of Intention” I read this for the first time about 7 years ago and found the principles very useful back then.

Dr. Dyer writes about our purpose and so I thought, I would share his words of inspiration for those of us at the impasse.

* “If you think you are separate from your purpose and that you are drifting without purpose, then this is exactly what you will attract.”  p. 150
* “There’s a silent something within that intends  you to express yourself.  That something is your soul telling you to listen and connect through love, kindness, and receptivity to the power of intention.” p.152
* “Expand your reality to the point where you pursue what you love doing and excel at it.”  p.236

The last quote is very powerful.  Pursue that work and activity so that what you love doing is your life.  Worry not about the financial reward and the acclimation.  Allow your thoughts and actions marinate in the parts of life that inspire you.  For me, that is work that is about serving others to help them become all that they are intended to become.

Your next step is to find ways to express who you are knowing that no one else can do this for you.
