Have you thought about your life’s mission? Perhaps not an everyday topic, but we all have unique gifts, skills and experiences that are meant to be shared with the world. Connecting to our mission can create a guiding force for the decisions we make, how we spend our time and energy, and help to create healthy boundaries and more. Ultimately, our personal mission can serve as a compass to create a clear focus and direction for our own unique path.
Exercise to Uncover Clues to Your Life Mission
Imagine that you are a wise woman or man responsible for passing down specific information. Think about what knowledge, special wisdom or expertise you would like to bestow to others or pass on to future generations (regardless if you have that skill or expertise now)……
- What 3 gifts of wisdom about life would you give to those that came to you?
- What are the 5 most important lessons that you have learned in life?
- What makes life worth living?
Take some time to reflect on your answers. How do you feel? Are you starting to gain some clarity? There are no right or wrong answers, it’s all about staying curious to see what this process uncovers.
Further Clues to Your Life Mission
Dive a little deeper by reflecting on these additional questions.
- What causes or issues are you most passionate about?
- What do you complain about the most? Is this something that you would like to try to change?
- What do you want your life to stand for? Have you thought about your personal legacy?
- What are your special gifts and talents?
- What is unique about you?
Take the time to dig deep on these questions and note which ones resonate the most with you. Once you have clarity, things will come into focus. This self-knowledge will help you decide how you want to spend your time and energy – two very precious resources.
Without focus, we can end up wasting time on things that don’t have much meaning or even bring that much joy to us and loves ones. With intention, we can create meaningful opportunities.
