How to find your purpose is a very intimate question, not least because at some point in your life, you’ve asked it yourself.
And you’ve felt the pressure building up because you began thinking...
Shouldn’t I know already what is my purpose?
What if I don’t know what is my purpose?
What if I’ll NEVER know??
Purpose can seem like a big nebulous idea...
Because for most people, they think of it as something outside of them. That it will come to them. Someday.
But purpose isn’t something that’s outside of you.
Purpose is already in you, at this very moment.
I believe that everyone is created with a purpose packaged along with them the day they were born. God wouldn’t just create an extra person on this earth for nothing now, would He?
It is your job to recognise that gift, and unwrap it.
You have to decide to open up to it and be willing to take the steps towards the inspiration that calls out to you.
In the next couple of weeks, you’re gonna see changes on my website and social media profiles.
That’s because last Thursday, I took a leap.
A big leap.
You probably may not have known much about my spiritual leanings, as I tend to keep it relatively private on the online world. Since I have been living in the Czech Republic, I have made use of the time and solitude that I have here to go into deep reflection and research on the religion that I have been guided to, which is Islam.
And as a woman whose one of her primary focus in life is based on faith and spirituality, I know that sooner or later, I must find the courage to step fully into being a Muslim woman and put on the headscarf.
As with all successful goals, setting a deadline is vital. So here was mine: When I achieve permanent residency in this country I’ve called home for the past five years.
Well, I passed that deadline now.
And so, I asked myself: “What’s next on my journey?”
A few weeks ago, I've had to come up with a decision.
You see, my move to live in a new country was like a spiritual journey of sorts. I've always been interested in spirituality, but the ramifications of moving to a new country caused me to dive deeper into questioning my higher purpose. Being out of my element and not having the distractions from back home, helped to heighten my journey.
Now, five years later, I came back full circle to a point where I now needed to be clear about my purpose here once again. So I made a clarity prayer. I asked straight to the Source, if I should stay, then show me the reason why, and if I should go, then show me where, and either way, make it very, very clear to me.
Well, the Source answered.
One of my colleagues asked in our group forum about a challenge she has.
Just how do you deliver your message to the world without sounding like a broken record?
You may already be familiar with this scenario. You discovered your voice, your message to bring to the world. So you start writing on your blog or record some videos.
And then, you get stuck.
Because this thing that you are trying to write about now, you’ve already written about. Or this speech that you are preparing for, you have already spoken it and is now up on YouTube.
What’s wrong with being a broken record?
See, thing is, strong brands DO sound like a broken record. I’ll give you an example.
