How fulfilled are you?

Does the word ‘purpose’ make your eyes glaze over and your mind switch off?
I know, it’s become a blah word... Maybe that’s the reason Simon Sinek’s phrase ‘big why’ went viral – he spoke of something we desire in words we could relate to.

We’re primed to seek meaningful lives and to express that meaning through our business/work, but we’re tired of the same-old same-old language because it seldom tells you how to create a fulfilling, meaningful life.

I recently came across the interesting idea that there are 3 parts to purpose:

  • Who you are - your character and personality
  • Your values – the important things that direct your life
  • The impact you want to make – what is often called your legacy.

Your impact is what is usually called your purpose as it is the visible part, the action you take, the work you do, the business you create but it is founded on the other 2. Your action needs to be aligned with you values to give a sense of meaning to the outcome, and it is your values that motivate you. All this is expressed through who you are as a person, your character traits and personality.

If your life feels blah, and you’d like to feel motivated and enthusiastic about what you do and the difference you make in the world, take time to reflect on
who you are as a person,
what is most important to you,
how does that show in the work you do.
If it doesn’t, what can you change so that it does?

This can be a challenging exercise – I know because I’ve reassessed my life several times! What I found most helpful was having someone ask the questions and help me find deeper answers than the first ones that came to mind.

If you’d like to deepen your sense of meaning, of living a fulfilling life, let’s have a conversation - contact me.
