How do I know I am “on purpose”?
Ishreen’s journey: ‘the front and back of my hand’
I know when I am on purpose because everything just flows. Life is fun and easy, and miracles abound around me – for me and the people I am with. I feel it in my core – my gut, my heart, my mind and my spirit.
It has been a long and enjoyable journey for me to find my current purpose – and it looks nothing like it did when I was in my twenties as an ambitious young engineer who wanted to run a large multi-national one day and who had a strong belief that it was dangerous to work with women – much more fun to be around men – “they are much more straight-forward”.
Who would have ‘thunk’ now that I am approaching my 50s, my passion and purpose is to assist women in achieving success with finesse and ease! They may be women in our core programme – Your Life on Purpose who have done what they set out to do in their twenties and are now looking to create and fulfil on their new purpose over the next 30 years; or they may be women in the corporate world who are looking to achieve balance and fulfil their highest potential by working with me as their Executive Coach. Being with these women when they are moving through the spaces from where they are now to where they want to be is the most delightful experience and does not really occur as work at all. That is how I know I am on purpose.
The purpose I had in my twenties was the flip side of my current purpose – a bit like the front and back of my hand. Both are valid and relevant to that life stage. So my belief is that purpose can evolve as we grow and develop and as we become clearer on who we are, what our values are and what we stand for in the world. It may come for you from a higher being or be one that you create. The important thing is that it is true to your core and that it lights you up when you are on purpose.
“…purpose can evolve as we grow and develop… as we become clearer on who we are, what our values are and what we stand for in the world.”
So I am interested to know your purpose and whether your purpose currently is from the front or back of your hand…
