The Power of Purpose

by admin in News

“Knowing your purpose buoys you when the seas are rough and anchors you when the seas are kind.”
Deirdre Keane

One of the best ways to help yourself to be motivated to keep going, to do the things that you may not feel up to and to achieve your aspirations, is to have a clear and compelling purpose.

What does purpose actually mean? Quite simply, it is the why of your life. Why are you here? What does it mean for you to have a life? What does it mean for those you love and those you interact with? In what way, do you choose to contribute? You are leaving a trail behind you, where does the trail lead to? How will you know if you have a life well lived?

Every business has a purpose. Every political party has a purpose. Every charity, institution and organisation has a purpose. It makes sense that every individual should also invest some resources to establish their purpose. A purposeless organisation will only exist in the short-term, will bounce from one thing to another but quite possible achieve nothing of value, will find making decisions next to impossible because they have no method of distinguishing what is the best decision for them, will find it difficult to attract a team or customer base as it is unclear what they are, what they stand for and what they provide.

What is the benefit of knowing my purpose ?
Your purpose is both your destination and your route planner.

How do I find my purpose?

How do I live in truth with my purpose?
