Using Joy as our Compass
I often get asked, “How do I discover my purpose in life?” There’s a profound beauty to discovering the answer to this question because it’s unique to everyone. And in all honesty, no one can answer that question for you – I mean no one.
Ok, I’m going to be cliché for a second – you hold the key. What I can do is give you a compass – and that compass is JOY.
What gives you the utmost joy in life? What is the one thing you would do even if you didn’t get paid for it?
For me personally, it’s been ‘transformation’. Being involved in the transformation of other individuals brings me the utmost fulfillment. I’m so giddy the night before a workshop that I can’t sleep. My participants and I have so much fun, we’re literally in fits of laughter. And don’t even get me started on post–workshop euphoria.
It hasn’t always been like this for me. I was once very much immersed in the corporate world, surrounded by all the comforts of life, yet something felt empty inside. All the money in the world couldn’t mask that feeling. It took a personal trauma to knock me back to my joy equilibrium. And I thank God every day that it did.
Do what you have fun doing – that is where you are meant to be. If you’re really serious about knowing your purpose, wake up with one question every morning – What brings me the greatest joy? When do I shine the most? – and watch your day unfold.
Keep following your compass. You’ll get there.
Be all that you are,
