Living Life On Purpose With Purpose

 

What does this mean to you?

Before we dig too deep into this challenge, let’s take a moment  to think about what it means to, “live life on purpose with purpose.” Before you read any further, pause and think about what it means to live on purpose. (Make it personal, what does it mean to you?)

For me, living on purpose with purpose means being conscious of my choices and my time. It means purposefully participating in life. Just think to live with purpose not only means we get more done, it will mean we get the right the things done. Finally, we can begin to take action on the things that really matter to us in our lives. The result of this purposeful living means that we will feel more satisfied and fulfilled.

I believe the most simple statement would be that living on purpose means you are living with awareness and attentiveness. It is very easy for us to get caught up in the routine of life, however, the fact is unless we force ourselves to be aware, we could easily live our lives in a fog. Livin with awareness and attentiveness means you will prepare and plan your days in order to reach certain goals.This type of awareness will inevitably lead to a positive sense of self, focus, and determination to reach personal and professional goals.

 

What I hope will happen

Here is what I will hope will happen over the next month. My hope is that each day you open your email, and read the post for that day it will challenge the way you to look at aspects of your life. It is also my hope that you will begin to make changes that will lead to you living a more purposeful life.
