For most of us, figuring out what our life purpose is, is not high on our to do list. We have a job, family obligations, social commitments, appointments…the list seems never ending. The problem is, without a well-defined life purpose, most of the things on our to do list don’t seem to get us very far. Our life is just filled with a series of events, with no real meaning or direction. We’re pretty much just going through the motions.

Finding your life purpose changes all that. It helps you focus on what really matters, keeps you motivated to achieve your goals, and protects the values you hold dear. It propels you forward, through the fear and uncertainty, into the life you were meant to lead – and it makes the journey incredibly fulfilling…

In a world that is filled with distractions - around the clock news, cell phones, Ipods, Internet, TV, video games - there is always something around to divert our attention and steal our focus. When you have no great purpose, no meaningful goal to move you forward, it’s easy to get pulled in other directions.

A life purpose will keep you focused. It helps you concentrate on the things that honor your beliefs and move you toward your goals – and it helps silence all the useless noise along the way. This noise isn’t just from things meant to distract you. It’s also the voice of others who try and tell you what your dreams should be. Most of us have been given a blueprint for our life to follow, whether we wanted it or not.

I was "supposed" to be a poor London-boy who worked at a comfortable yet un-satisfying J-O-B for the rest of my life. At least... that's what my family told me. It wasn’t that they didn’t love me. They just didn’t know any better. For years, I followed their vision, until I finally broke free. I found my own way, first as a firefighter, later as a real estate investor and finally, as a life coach. It was only when I started to listen to my own voice that I realized the power of having a purpose.

A life purpose helps you clarify your vision for the future, and make sure you’re living your dream - not someone else’s. It will also create a much more vivid experience. It’s like going from black and white to high definition technicolor. It will motivate you, inspire you and lead you to the kind of success that most only dream about.

If you’re struggling with finding your life purpose, one of the best ways to get in touch with your inner voice is to spend time alone with your thoughts. Have you ever noticed that you tend to get great ideas in the shower? That’s because you don’t have any distractions there! Spending time alone outdoors works just as well.

Find a place where you can reconnect with who you are and with the values that are most important to you. You need to decide what you want your life to be about.

When you start working at goals that fit with your life’s purpose, you awaken an inner desire to be the best that you can be. You shape your own destiny, and you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
