The Starting Place For Remembering Your Purpose In Life

Feeling a bit lost about what to do with your life?

Maybe you’re compelled to find out, but you’re not exactly sure about where to start.

I’ll tell you where to start… remember what your unique gifts are. Because the unique gifts you possess are the tools you took with you into this life when you were born in order to carry out your mission. Look at what your gifts are, and you’ll have a clue as to what do to with your life.

Imagine waking up one morning with amnesia – you have forgotten what you do and who you are. You walk out to your driveway, and there’s a commercial-looking truck parked there. In the back of the truck are professional-grade tools that are obviously used for plumbing work. “Oh,” you think, “I must be a plumber.”

It really can be that simple. You possess certain unique gifts needed to carry out your purpose in life. When you look at what your gifts are, you will see what your purpose is. But here’s the kicker. Even though at some level you have always known what your gifts are and what you are here to do, sometimes it’s hard to see this in the midst of a busy life. Sometimes it’s hard to see yourself objectively enough to understand what you really offer the world.

In Richard Bach’s bestselling novel Illusions, the main character learns that “You are never given a wish without being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.” In the same vein, you are never given a gift without a reason to use it. You may have to work to remember it, however. Especially if the voice of your inner knowing gets drowned out by powerful forces like the basic instinct for survival, sensory distractions and the projected fears from your well-meaning tribe.

It doesn’t matter if your parents’ or some other ancestors’ DNA had something to do with the gifts you have. It doesn’t matter if you believe a higher power gave them to you. The bottom line is that you have what you need to get done what you’re here to do.
