OK, now you're ready to find your life purpose! First, read though ALL the material below before you actually do the steps.
There are 3 parts to your life purpose ...
Step #1 Motivations
First you think of the activities you like to do most (food and sex do not count, unless you are truly destined to be a chef or be in the sex industry). Next, you determine what actions are required to do your favorite activities. Think in terms of "action verbs"; action verbs are words like: create, nurture, restore, identify, catagorize, communicate, etc. Then, narrow it down to the top 3 choices.
Step #2 Principles
Next, you think of the things that you, personally, believe in most strongly. What you stand for. Come up with as many as you can think of (10-12 if possible). Then you choose the single most important principle; your guiding principle.
Step #3 Targets
Next, you think about the people or group (members of society) you would most like to see benefit from your efforts (from Step 1 and Step 2) i.e. what group or type of organization would you most like to help? Think of as many as come to mind (10-12 if possible). Then you choose the single most important one to you, the one that you feel the strongest about. This is your target.
After you complete these 3 exercises then you'll have all 3 components of your life purpose. Just put them all together and you have it. Here's what it will look like ... (you fill in the blanks)
