3 Tips To Find Your Purpose
Have you ever wondered are you living your purpose? Are you doing what God has assigned for you to do on this earth? I know I have. In 2011, I graduated from SUNY Oswego with a bachelor in Sociology.
The day I earned my degree, I recall jumping for joy and shouting "mommy this is for you". After they called my name, and I sashed across the stage, I remember thinking this was it. I get to begin my journey towards adulthood and work a 9-5 for the rest of my life. Then reality slapped me across my face.
Three months after graduation, my palms were sweaty, my heart was racing all because I had yet to get a job. I mean I believed once I graduated college that someone would have hired me. Who was I kidding? After sending out hundreds of emails and getting called back for multiple interviews, I didn't get the Job. I was so perplexed because I did everything right. I went to college, I graduated, received a degree, so why haven't I found a job. Well, what they failed to tell me is that you need more than a degree to get a job. Yes, I had a degree but the positions I was applying to were not aligned to my purpose. After soul searching I realized that it was time for me to find my purpose. Quite frankly, it took some time for me to dig deep and find out what my purpose was but I devised 3 tips that will help you get the ball rolling! Here are 3 easy tips which will help you find your purpose.
3 Tips To Find Your Purpose
DREAM BIG. Courage expands your vision. Imagine what you would do if you could set aside any limiting beliefs. Find something you value more than your pride or comfort.
CLARIFY YOUR GOALS.To get tangible results, it's crucial to translate your vision into a practical plan of action. Identify what you're going to do. And even though we’re getting ready to wrap up Q1 I wanted to show you how you can still plan out your entire year and stay hyper-focused on your goals. Check out my goal setting workbook which will have you crushing your goals like a BOSS!
WRITE OUT YOUR DEADLINES AND PLAN. You're more likely to stay on track if you decide what actions you will complete today or by the end of the month. You must write down your vision and create deadlines in order to increase accountability. I am reminded by Habakkuk 2:2 which reads, "Then the LORD replied: "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.". After you get the vision you must take time to write out a plan to see your vision come to life.
As you search for your purpose remember that God has made you uniquely to fulfill a special purpose on this earth. No one person has the same message and or the same task. While searching for your purpose remember that your best adversary is Jesus. Remain in Him and you will find what you are seeking for.
So here’s what you need to do today:
Pray for God’s guidance and then write your purpose statement using the rubric:
I believe God created me to help ______(recipient)_______,
Once you have created your statement and feel to share your purpose statement with our private Facebook group, Daughters Who Command , IF you’re comfortable with that. Let's find your purpose and be who God intended for us to be!
