Finding Your Purpose #5: Envision Your Path

Finding Your Purpose #5: Envision Your Path

Posted by Jeff Jochum on Wednesday, March 15, 2017

[Originally published on my Facebook group: Unique Brand University]

When thinking about what you should do with your life, you often already know several possible paths that lay in front of you. Ideas about what to do with your life can come from teachers or family members who told you that you were good at something; characters in books or movies that you relate to or admire; your favorite activities or subjects you studied in school; other careers or paths you’ve heard about that you think are interesting.

Reflect for about 15 minutes on all of these things and any other idea you’ve had regarding what your life’s purpose might be.

In order to use the power of imagination to our advantage here, first come up with at least five different paths (for career, lifestyle or whatever area of life you are pondering about) for your life. Now pick one and imagine every detail of that path.

 Ask yourself these questions:

  • What your life would be like?
  • Imagine your daily life, starting with waking up in the morning, and go through in detail each of your activities.
  • After 10 years of this life, what kind of a person would you be?
  • What aspects of you would grow and thrive in that kind of situation?
  • What aspects of you would become dormant or unused?
  • Who do you see yourself surrounded by? What kind of people do you have in this life you are imagining?
  • In living this life, how do people see you? Imagine a stranger is hearing about how for the first time… What is their impression?
  • What about this life gives you the greatest joy? What about this life gives you anxiety?

Write these things down.

Meditate on this vision.

As you imagining this life path, observe how you feel emotionally and physically. Repeat the process with all the 5 paths (or as many as you identified as possibilities).

How Do You Know Which Path is the Right One for You?

When you’ve imgained all of the paths, ask yourself which one made you feel the best. The path that is truly your to follow will make you feel inspired, energetic, peaceful and exactly YOU. In each scenario that you imagined, identify your emotional state. The scenarios that contained feelings of stress, difficulty, loneliness or fear are the paths you should eliminate. The paths you imagined that made you feel relaxed, self-loving and generous are those that show the highest promise.

Finding Your Purpose #6: Experiment

Finding Your Purpose #6: Experiment

Posted by Jeff Jochum on Monday, March 20, 2017

[Originally published on my Facebook group: Unique Brand University]

When looking for your passion, a good idea is to try out roles you’ve never had before and work on areas you’ve never worked on. You might have a natural talent for something and enjoy certain activities a great deal, but you never know until you try. Some people discover they like to organize events the first time they are involved in it.

You might not know you love teaching or training until you go and train people. Or maybe you think you might want to work on a particular field, but you’re not sure. Trying them out will get you the answer. It could also be that you have an idea that you might like to pursue a career on a certain field, but when getting your hands dirty you will find it’s not for you after all.

Remember, only those who seek will find and you’ve got to go out there to find your passion. As you don’t have time to try out everything in this world, you have to make a choice. It would help if you could identify a few possible paths for you first, and then go and try them out for some time. If you have trouble identifying those paths, go back to our life purpose tip no.2 and try to answer some of those questions.

Once you’ve made a list of areas where your passion may lie, get first hand experience in all of them.

Some ideas for getting a chance to experiment and try things out:

  • Join a not-for-profit organization where you can get various responsibilities and be involved while not giving up your day job. Pick an organization which has a mission that’s close to your heart.
  • Browse around the internet for volunteering opportunities. A good website for that is idealist.org
  • Contact people who are doing the things that you find interesting. Explain your situation, and ask them questions about what they do. Try to shadow them while they work or ask if you can work for them for free for some amount of time. People are mostly generous, you might be surprised by the response.
  • Read everything you can get your hands on about the subjects you listed. You will get bored quickly about areas you are not so passionate about, and will feel energized and fascinated about the new information on topics close to your heart.

After you’ve tried out different possibilities, you will get clarity on which one of those was your true passion.

You might hit the jackpot already with the first possible path and fall in love with it, or you might discover that none of those is really for you. That’s all right too, at least you have eliminated those as options and you can stop wasting your time on them and can explore new pathways.

Finding Your Purpose #7: Take Action

Finding Your Purpose #7 (of 7): Take Action!

Posted by Jeff Jochum on Tuesday, March 21, 2017

[Originally published on my Facebook group: Unique Brand University]

The secret to eternal happiness (yes, no need to look any further): discover what you love to do and devote all of your energy to doing it.

Why do most people prefer to sleep in? Because they are constantly tired or have nothing else to do. How often do you come home tired, all of the energy sucked out of you and just toss yourself in front of TV?

Some people look for some spark in their life from bars, friends, parties. How often do you feel tired at work when even half of the work day is not over yet? You feel sleepy, unmotivated.

Then suddenly you get a call from a dear friend who proposes to do something cool the same night. What happens? You find yourself talking enthusiastically on the phone, wave your hands, laugh – all of the tiredness seems to be swept away. Why the sudden increase in energy? That is the power of doing things you enjoy and our passionate about.

If you’re not living your passion, you have an extreme energy leak. Your productivity is down, you are moody, stressed and depressed.

When you’re doing something that is fun about which you’re passionate, you feel an abundance of energy. If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing the right thing! This is wasting your life and energy. When your work is your passion, you will never work another day – it becomes a fun activity, an adventure.

We spend most of our waking life at work. Much more than at home, among our family and friends. This means your job is a crucial part of your life. It’s meaning and impact reach far beyond the salary figure.

In order to be happier, fitter and more productive in all aspects of life, you’ve got to find what you love. And devote your life to it. Nothing is worse than spending the best years of your life stuck in a job that you don’t love, knowing deep within you there is something better waiting out there for you.

Life favors those who show courage and take action to move their dreams forward.

So how do you go about it?

First you’ve got to discover what you’re passionate about (that’s what all of the previous tips have been about). Write down how you want to feel. Start with general intention. You don’t have to go into little details, at least not at the start of your journey.

Visualize your life when you’re living your passion. The vision might excite you enough to make you do something about it. YOU have to make a decision that comes from your gut. Your head will give you lots of reasons why it’s not a good idea, why you might fail, what judgements you’ll receive.

Emotionally, you might feel scared and vulnerable. You have to just acknowledge those messages, but make sure your will prevails. You might not understand each step; you might not know if you’re doing the right thing or how you’re going to get there.

At this point, after all your reflection, this is the point that separates those who live their dreams from those who feel trapped. Its not knowledge, or wisdom or insight – it’s action. Take the plunge. It will feel like jumping blindfold off a cliff, but you have to have faith in yourself.

You have identified your direction, so take baby steps toward it. Think of that dream life, how much you want it and how much you deserve it and use that power to commit yourself to taking one step every day.

It may be small: emailing someone who will be useful, taking a day trip somewhere, setting up a meeting with influential people or organizations. It doesn’t have to be revolutionary, just make sure to keep your promise to yourself to do one thing every day.

After 10 days of this, look back at what you’ve done and notice how much closer you are now than before you made your comitment. Use the power you feel from your success to propel you through another 10 days.

Stay True to Yourself

Success means doing work you find fulfilling, work that makes you happy, and living according to your values. Run your own race. Don’t care what other people say about you. What matters is what you tell yourself. If living your passion means taking steps that might be considered out of the ordinary and not aligned with “what people are supposed to do”, so be it. The greatest risk in life is not taking one.

Finding Your Purpose #4: Get External Feedback

Finding Your Purpose #4: Get Outside Input

Posted by Jeff Jochum on Tuesday, March 7, 2017

[Originally published on my Facebook group: Unique Brand University]

Sometimes we’re so stuck in our way of thinking that we need external input. Answers, even obvious ones, might not come to us because we are used to thinking in a box.

There are many ways to get good input for our self-discovery process. Here are some of the most effective:

Read Books
One of the best ways is to read a book where that discusses the same kind of questions that you have in your mind. It can be a book directly about finding your purpose or it can be fiction. Paolo Coelho has many books, most of it fiction, that are great to stimulate your thinking. Ask around or do a search on Google and you are sure to find something good to read.

Ask your friends and family
Pick 5 people that are closest to you and who have known yours for a long time. Be authentic with them and they will be authentic with you (it almost always works). Ask them sincerely what they think you should devote yourself to and what you are best at. Sometimes we miss the obvious ourselves, but people around us notice it. Not all of the answers you will hear might be insightful or even valuable, but there is a good chance you will come upon a gem or two. Pay attention to the common theme of their answers – maybe most of them see a similar path laid out for you. The wisdom of the crowds.

Take a talents/career test
Often what we get the most joy out of is also what we are naturally good at. It might be a good idea to take a career test or two to see what they reveal about you. Years of research have found that only 17% of people within the workplace play to their strengths most of the time. This means most of the people are operating much below their potential. The Gallup Organization has done some extensive research on this which has resulted in an amazing book titled Now Discover Your Strengths. Working with data gathered from interviews with over 2 million people, the authors present the reader with thirty-four basic talent “themes”, or strengths.
There are hundreds of combinations of these individual strengths, and in order to find out what your ‘combination of strengths’ requires you to take a test on their website. When you buy the book, you are given a password and a URL for the test.
The test is serious, extensive, and comprehensive. It isn’t short, it takes a commitment from you, but the rewards are significant. Self-knowledge is often hard to come by.

Enroll in a life purpose course
All of the questions in your mind have been asked by other people before. Some people have worked on helping other people discover their life purpose for many years and compiled the knowledge into life purpose courses. There are several great courses out there you can look at and evaluate for your needs.

Work with a coach
One of the best ways to get personalized expert support is to work with a coach. Coaches help people find their purpose, determine and achieve personal goals. Coaches use multiple methods to help clients with the process of setting and reaching goals.

Finding Your Purpose #3: Begin with the End

Finding Your Purpose #3: Begin with the End

Posted by Jeff Jochum on Monday, March 6, 2017

[Originally published on my Facebook group: Unique Brand University]

When you start with the end in mind, you have a personal direction to guide all of your activities. Beginning with the end in mind is taking control of your own life and giving meaning to the actions you take every day.

Start building a vision for your life – what would you want to have achieved by the end of your (long) life. Imagine it’s your 95th birthday – what would you like to have achieved with your life by then? When we understand the legacy we want to leave behind, we will gain clarity on our life’s purpose. A legacy is simply the captured summary of life purpose achieved.

Take a journal and write everything down – in as much detail as you can. Try to capture all of the aspects of your life: career, relationships, lifestyle, the legacy you want to leave behind. To come back to the 95th birthday example – what would you like people to say about you there? How can you be more of the kind of person they would describe there?

Live Your Life with the End in Mind

Once you know where you want to end up and the kind of achievements you want to have, you will have found a new purpose for your life. You will now have a real reason for living, all of your actions have a meaning. You are much more likely to do great things with your life and achieve your goals when you go about it with a sense of purpose.

To begin with the end in mind is to begin with the image of the end of your life as the frame of reference by which everything else is measured. We may be busy, we may be efficient, but we will only be effective if we begin with the end in mind. Whatever your goals are, you need to get clear on what outcome you are looking for. By planting those desired outcomes firmly in the back of your mind, you become a lot more likely to recognize and take advantage of opportunities that support the achievement of your goals. Over time, your life will steadily move closer and closer to what you want it to be.

Is This My Life Purpose?

Once you have painted the picture for your future, ask yourself if this is what you really want. If your answer is no, start from the beginning. If your answer is “Yes!” wouldn’t you feel a sense of purpose and direction by living up to this standard? Now your life has purpose and meaning, by living each day in ways that contribute to the legacy you want to leave behind.

Finding Your Purpose #2: Ask Better Questions

Finding Your Purpose #2: Ask Better Questions

Posted by Jeff Jochum on Wednesday, March 1, 2017

[Originally published on my Facebook group: Unique Brand University]

Nobody can tell you what you should do with your life. It is you that has to dig real deep inside of you to find out what you are naturally good at, and what you enjoy doing.

Here’s a list of questions that help you connect with your inner self.

What would you do if you could not fail?

Sometimes we are held back by fear of failing, or we’re afraid that other people – especially those close to us – might judge us. If whatever you would choose to do would be a success – then what would you do?

If you figure out an answer for this – why not do it now?

What do you want to hear at your funeral?

One of the ways to find out what is important to you is to ask questions like, “If I had only six months to live, how would I spend my time?”, and “At my funeral, what would I want to hear said about me?”. We all want to live, love, learn, and leave a legacy. What is the legacy you want to leave? What is the legacy you feel is worth striving for, what would give meaning to your life?

What do you have the most fun doing?

People are great at what they love to do. Have you ever seen a great musician on stage that is totally immersed in his own music? If he wouldn’t absolutely love singing, he couldn’t be that way. You cannot become world class at anything you don’t love.

Steve Jobs said the following at a commencement address: “You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

Only what you love can give meaning and purpose to your life. What do you have the most fun doing?

What would you do for FREE for the rest of your life if you had twelve million dollars in the bank?

Think about it hard. Take your time to really nail this. This might very well give you the answer you are looking for.

What would make you proud?

Richard Branson, from Virgin, has said the following: “Above all, you want to create something you are proud of…. That has always been my philosophy of business. I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive, then I believe you are better off doing nothing.”

If you had to create something you would be proud of, what would it be? Forget peer pressure and what society expects from you. What would make you proud? What is the one thing you feel would be worth giving everything for you? Screw it, just do it.

Whose life do you want to be living? Who are your greatest role models?

When you admire someone, it shows the qualities you want to have or the kind of things you want to achieve in your life. Think about what your role models have in common and what is it about them that you admire. If you would achieve the same things, how would that make you feel? Would pursuing those goals give you something you want to strive for?

Find your love and passion; pursue it and you will find success. Yes, every beginning is hard and requires an effort. That’s the way it is. You may never reach your goals; for that, you will be forgiven. But if you don’t make at least one serious attempt to go for your dreams, would you be able to look yourself in the eye and say: “Naah, I never wanted it anyway”?

Analyze your answers to these questions

Take your time to answer all of the questions here. Once you have them, analyze the answers. Do you see any common themes? I bet you do.

If your business or your job is also your passion, you will find a way to do it, and you will make it through and won’t quit when the going gets tough because you love it.

Life is too short and too valuable to spend it on things you don’t enjoy. Only do the things you love. Start now.

Unless you’ve discovered the true purpose of your life, you are living a life of mediocrity and not reaching your potential.When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds: your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands is every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be.There is one thing that you must acknowledge before anything else: only those who seek will find.

Break your daily routineThis is important for a number of reasons. No matter how simple you think your life is, there’s far too many distractions to really connect with yourself, unless you change your environment. People are creatures of habit and unless you move away from what you’re used to, your mind will not think outside of your usual box.You need to get away from it all, and that’s not meant flippantly.

Once you’re focused on a goal, your brain will work on the questions in your mind also subconsciously. This is called incubation.
