Do You Know What Your Mission In Life Is?
I remember reading a book that asked this question and I thought “No, do I have a mission in life?” 🙄 I asked my husband if he knew what his mission in life was and he said “Yes”! I was shocked that he knew what his was without even thinking. I asked him what it was and he said very emphatically, “to make you happy”. Wow! 😯 He was so sure and serious about this complicated question. I was flattered however, it was obvious that I didn’t know what my mission in life was…
I had started my personal development program and was reading or listening to books everyday. I pondered on this question over and over “Why am I here? What is my purpose in life?”. I knew it was more than being a wife and mother, and I had already quit my job to do my home based business full time, however, I didn’t think it was my purpose in life…or was it? 🙄
Mind, Body, & Soul
As I continued my personal growth plan, I realized that most of my life, I was focused on my body or the “physical” challenges I faced from being overweight. My thoughts were obsessed with my body and food. A lot of us occupy our thoughts with challenges regarding our “body”. Then the next thing which usually occupies our thoughts is our “mind”. We may be thinking about our job or career, or money, therefore, most of our life, we are “stuck” in thoughts about the “body” (physical) or the “mind” (ego). We rarely take time to think about our “soul” and this is where we will discover our mission in life.
As I conquered my body and my mind, I pondered a lot about my soul and about my soul’s purpose in life. As I invested more time studying and taking time to be “quiet” (eliminate mind chatter), I started to feel my soul’s purpose emerging. Over time, I discovered exactly what my mission in life is.
Here’s a video where I explain this concept:
Steps To Take To Discover Your Mission
1) Start taking “quiet” time sessions in the morning and in the night. We can meditate or just take time alone while quieting our mind.
2) Start doing the mirror exercise to make us aware of our “mind chatter”, so we can quiet it down.
3) Once we quiet our mind, start to “listen” and “pay attention” to times we are very passionate about what we are doing.
4) Ask ourselves, what do we love to do if money wasn’t an issue.
5) If the answer to #4 is very different from what we do in our career, we will start to feel a “calling” to do something else which resonates with our passion.
6) When we are doing what we love to do, we are naturally full of energy and excitement. We love it and we can do it 24 hours/day, 7 days/wk.
7) We will discover a happiness and fulfillment each and every day…we have found our mission and purpose in life. 😆
