I’ve been working on a purpose statement for myself. I hope to clarify to myself why I’m here and what I’m trying to accomplish. In any moment, I want to be able to use my purpose statement to assess whether my actions reflect my beliefs.
Any good purpose statement describes what value you want to instill in the world and how you will achieve that. Some people use: “I [achieve X goal] by [living in Y way]” as a template.
But more importantly, your purpose statement should feel so juicy that part of you is embarrassed to say it. It should be the thing you’ve always yearned for but never got. In that way, when you are truly living your purpose, you offer a gift to the world but also to the child in you that still feels wounded, broken, or unseen.
So what’s your purpose statement?
