Don’t wait for a crisis!

By Marion Nixon

This week I’ve been thinking about the role of character and personality in clarifying your sense of purpose.

There’s the obvious characteristics, like being an extrovert or introvert, that will influence the way you show up – for example both those types of people make good leaders but their style of leadership will be very different. And whether you’re an ardent animal lover or a ‘people person’ could play a significant role in your contribution to your community.

Are you an outdoor or indoor person, someone who likes to be on the move or to sit at a desk all day? An ‘A-type personality’ always busy and in some cases, thriving on drama? Or are you more of an introvert like me, and need time out, prefers calmness, and negotiates rather than confronts?

The more I thought about this aspect of determining your purpose, the more I realised how fundamental it is. For example a friend who grew up on a farm, and aged 3, sang to cows, was persuaded by her family to take a job in a busy medical practice. Although her orderliness developed into good admin skills she hated being in the office all day, and eventually had a ‘life crisis’ in which she left both her job and her marriage. On the other side of that experience she now realises that a large part of it came from years of frustration at feeling stuck in ‘a steady job’ that she hated.

Have you lost your sense of purpose, or is part of your life feeling stuck or unfulfilled? Don’t wait for a crisis! Instead allow yourself to dream until you find a dream you really want to fulfill. You’ll be surprised to find there are already stepping stones leading you there if you look for them. If you need help, that’s what I do, so give me a call to get some clarity.  

There are always options: sometimes you need another pair of eyes to help you see them. Call me.
