“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.”
Are you clear about what you want and are you living in alignment with your core values? If you truly want to live your life on purpose, answering this question is the prerequisite. It’s your starting point.
Sure, there are a lot of people who know their calling in life, their true purpose, and live “on purpose.” There are even more who don’t. Which one are you?
Take this True or False Self-Quiz to determine whether you are operating from a place of purpose.
- When I get up in the morning I look forward to the day ahead, whether it’s a work day or my day off.
- I love the work I do — any external reward I receive I consider “the icing on the cake.”
- My work makes me feel rewarded and motivated rather than drained and exhausted.
- When I have spare time I participate in activities that I’m passionate about, and those activities reflect my purpose.
- I know what my greatest talents and strengths are, and I apply those attributes to my work in some capacity every day.
- I know I’m living my true purpose when others notice and compliment me on my abilities.
- My life, personal and professional, reflects and is in alignment with my core values.
- I consistently base my decisions on my beliefs, not on the expectations of others, and, overall, I’m happy with the outcomes.
- If money were not an issue I wouldn’t change much of what I do and how I do it.
- My work environment is supportive of my personality and talents and allows me to not only show up as my true self but to perform at my optimal level.
- When my work environment fails to provide me with opportunities to utilize my unique abilities, I look to make a positive change.
- The good (and great days) at work far outweigh the occasional “bad” days.
- My work is enjoyable and often feels like play.
- By fulfilling my own dreams and desires, I am making a positive contribution to the world as a whole.
- Determining one’s life purpose can take a long time, but I’m confident that, even when I question what my purpose is, I know that I have one.
If you answered false to several of these, take a minute to reflect on those specific items. Roll the clock forward and envision what it will look and feel like in 3, 5 or 10 years if nothing changes. You know how fast life passes by and no turning back the clock. If it’s time to make some adjustments, I’d like to help.
