Kate’s Corner: Your Life Purpose

The second success principal Jack Canfield outlines in his “The Success Principles” is to defined your life purpose. Once you decide on what your life purpose is, in one memorizable sentence, then you organize all of your daily activities around it.

What is your right livelihood? What are all the things that bring joy into your life? You were living your life on purpose during those times.

When you write down your life purpose, memorize it, and keep it upper most in your mind, opportunities will naturally gravitate into your life. This is another way the law of gravity works.

When you live your life on purpose, all of your activities automatically serve others, as well as serving yourself.

You are off purpose when you stop feeling joy and gratitude in your life. You are in the highest alignment with your purpose when you feel the most joy.

Look over your life so far. Write down all the times you felt the greatest joy. Where are the commonalities? Can you figure out how to make a living doing those things?

Exercise to help you create your own life purpose:

1) List two of your most unique personal qualities.

2) List one or two ways you enjoy expressing these qualities as you interact with others, such as supporting and inspiring.

3) Define your own utopian world, the perfect world as you see it.

Combine these three into a single statement.

Memorize the statement.

Say it first thing in the morning and last thing at night before you go to bed. Paint a picture of it and hang it in a prominent place in your home.

These principles are a work in progress, an art form to create success beyond what you thought you were capable of.

  1. Thanks for the post, Kate. It would be difficult for me to express what my life purpose is at the moment. But I am feeling joy, having had lunch with the girls I used to work with. Joy is also everything is peaceful with me now. It would be a good exercise for me to answer those points you’ve raised.

  2. It took me decades but I finally found my life purpose. It’s the thing that gets me up in the morning and makes it hard to go to sleep at night. Great post!
