You’re Not Living Your Purpose If…

11 Apr, 2018 General,Self Improvement

Our purpose, legacy, WHY and passion are more and more important to people than ever before.

It’s no longer enough to just show up in the office, do your job and go home, just to do it all again the next day.

We crave meaning. We want our work to impact lives, change the world and leave a legacy. When you follow your true purpose in life, the work comes more easily and you are filled with a natural energy and spirit to achieve results.

It’s important to stay true to you and tune in with yourself to see how you’re really feeling.

Have you been stuck in the status quo?

Have you lost sight of your true aspirations and what you want out of life?

Take a moment to reflect on your inner self, and ask yourself if you’re really living your purpose:


Your Health Has Declined.

Unhappiness, stress and anxiety can play an important role on your physical health.

Have you noticed more fatigue, muscle pain, headaches, weight gain or trouble sleeping?

These symptoms can all be signs of an unfulfilled life. More often than not, our body is telling us something before our brain catches on.

Pay close attention to the physical signs your body is sending and how they may be a reflection of what’s going on in your mind and heart.

When you are truly living your purpose and feel fulfilled in life, your body will thank you.


Work Is Affecting Your Personal Life.

It’s normal to have periods of high workload; work may occasionally call for a night or weekend of extra hours. But, at the end of the day you have to be able to leave your work drama behind you.

Have you noticed feelings of stress, tension, not having fulfillment or even anger from work, seeping into your personal life?

Ask your loved ones if they’ve noticed a change in your behavior.

If work is negatively impacting your mood in personal life, it may be time for a change.


You Feel Like You’ve Plateaued.

In my opinion, one of the keys to long-term happiness is to continue learning. Whenever I work with a new client, partner with a peer on a project, or read a new book, I embrace the learning opportunity.

Does work feel stagnant, slow and like it’s taking more than it’s giving?

You may just be surviving, rather than growing.

If you work for yourself, consider ways you can evolve your products or services. Maybe it’s time to write a book and share your story with the world. Find new influences in your life, whether they be peers, spiritual leaders or a coach.


Recognizing your unhappiness or dissatisfaction is the easy part. How you react and choose to make a change takes true courage and commitment.


Are you ready for a change?


My life changed in 1989 when I met my mentor, Zig Ziglar. Since then, I’ve been on a mission to help others find and achieve their true purpose in life.


Do you want to find your true purpose? I can help!
