Feeling a sense of purpose is at the very top of Mazlow’s heirachy of needs, the pyramid of self-actualization. Often times, I come across many people who ask the question, “What is my purpose?”, “How do I find it?” or “Does it really exist?”
In fact I was one of them a few years ago. I often felt that I was here for a purpose and I needed to do whatever it took to find it.
I often asked myself, “What career I should I take up?” or “What kind of life should I have?”
Actually, that’s how I got onto this Wild Woman Run Free Journey in the first place. I was searching for something that would give me purpose, a reason for being here.
And although its taken me down this incredible journey, for which I am extremely thankful for… I’ve come to realize that it’s not just about “what you’re doing” or “what you’ve accomplished” or “what career or lifestyle you have”, that gives you purpose or that allows you to live your life ON purpose.
I’ve learnt that LIVING A LIFE ON PURPOSE is all about how you feel on your journey and how many lives you can change with your presence.
Many of us spend too much time, weighing up all the options that we have and the paths that we can take, but in the end, it doesn’t matter what path you take… as long as it brings you joy and contentment and allows you to serve others too.
Yes we are all here with a purpose and research has discovered that feeling a sense of purpose is at the top of the self –actualisation pyramid.
However, I believe that we should be more mindful of how we feel, rather than what we are doing.
In today’s Wild Woman Run Free episode, I will take you through the tips on how to Live Your Life On Purpose, so listen below or check out Wild Woman Run Free Episode 020 on iTunes or Stitcher.
