How Do You Live A Life Of Purpose?

How Do You Live A Life Of Purpose?

Bernadette-Soares-cover-smallLiving with integrity, purpose and a strong sense of self is some of the cornerstone’s to a life of success. The world often measures success in terms of financial growth and stability and while that has its place, it is not how true success is measured.

True success in practical terms is not settling for what is out there, grabbing the first thing that is available but following your passion and your dreams and going for what you really want. You will have to plan for this, live with integrity, face many fears and overcome failures along the way but that is all part of building up your resistance which paves the way to a successful life.

You will have to be willing to make some real changes, not stick with the jobs that you have grown to hate and not be willing to change the habits that have no value.  If you want to live a life of value and impact you will need to build up your skillset and change your mindset on a regular basis. The world is moving at a much quicker pace now and sometimes we feel that we have to work longer and harder to keep up but this is the cause of much burnout. Instead take time to work smarter and more efficiently by stream lining your life’s goals, values and skills to achieve long lasting results for your life.

In order to stay focussed and stop drifting in the same direction that you have been in for awhile, you will have to learn to also embrace failure as sometimes only by trying, do we know where we are meant to be next, and you will have to let go of fears and old ways of thinking. It takes courage and strength but we can all find that strength within us and from various forms of support around us.

Here’s some simple tips from me to get you started:

  • Live in alignment with your purpose. What can you start doing immediately that will let you live 100% in alignment with your purpose? How can you live true to your purpose within every situation you are in, every second of the day?
  • Set your life commandments. Define your personal commandments to live your best life. What adages and principles do you want to follow in your life?
  • Discover your values. Values are the essence of what makes you, you.
Living with integrity is about living in a state of grace and truth. Hold yourself to the highest conduct. Every one of us have our own set of ethics and principles, in fact in my book ‘Outrageous Living‘ one of the daily affirmations I’ve included states: ‘When I make healthy, empowering choices for myself, I begin to feel my own self-love’. This is a statement I live by. Live in full alignment with your purpose, commandments and values so when you look at yourself in the mirror every day, you’ll know and love the person looking back at you. That’s where your true power lies.
