“Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished ... if you’re alive it isn’t.” ~Richard Bach
Perhaps the questions that follow are:
What is your life mission?
What are your core values that drive your mission?
How are you fulfilling your mission?
And if you are not, how can you?
Unfortunately, many people go through life never consciously knowing what their mission is, not being clear about their life purpose, or being unaware of their their core values.
As a result, many live a life of going through the motions, living a life defined by someone else, or by life circumstances, resulting in a not quite satisfying, unfulfilled life.
I spent a good deal of time in that place, until one day, awhile back, someone asked me to answer the above questions. I couldn't. I was embarrassed and frustrated.
It took me some time, effort and a commitment to a personal coach to go through the process. It was the best thing I ever did!
Today I am clear about my mission, connected to my purpose, living by my core values and most importantly, serving others in a way that inspires them while fueling my passion!
Today, my core values provide the framework on which I base all my personal and professional decisions. My mission provides me with direction. My purpose keeps me focused and open to the opportunities and inspiration that come my way.
Here's what I came up with for mysefl:
My mission is to use my passion, creativity and resourcefulness to support and inspire others to connect with their essence, discover their unique purpose and create the life of their dreams!
My core values are authenticity, creativity, interdependence, passion and service to spirit.
My unique purpose is to work with teens and the parents, professionals, organizations and communities that support, encourage and inspire them to reach their fullest potential!
I am grateful for the opportunity to fulfill my purpose by providing education, mentoring, coaching, training and consulting services to teens and the adults that support and inspire them.
I continue to work with a coach, an accountability partner and a Mastermind group to keep me focused, inspired and on track. Although life continues to bring challenges, I have access to principles, tools, techniques and support that have created an inspired pathway to the life I want to live. My pathway is an expression of my passion, my purpose and my values and keeps me in a state of constant gratitude!
I encourage you to take some time pondering the above questions. Call or email if I can help you or your teen!
