What is My Life Purpose? The Answer is in your Heart, Not Your Head!

by Mariana M. Cooper

This is the number one question that I hear from clients and students. “Mari, what is my life purpose?” Should I do this? Or should I do that? And then they go into an analysis of all of the pros and cons, how they tried this and that, who agrees and disagrees etc etc. These mental gymnastics may work for other things but when it comes to aligning with your “Life’s Purpose” your heart ALWAYS holds the true answer.

But before you go off into meditation to ask your heart what the answer is let me clarify one MAJOR Point! We all have SEVERAL Life’s Purposes! No one comes in with just 1. So if you feel that by making a choice you will be tying yourself down, relax. That is not the case at all.

The truth is without Passion, you are not living up to the reasons for being here in the first place. Everyone came in with several gifts that they were meant to impart on the world. Everything from public leadership, to parenting, to art, to being a reliable crossing guard for school children are part of a long list of potential “Life Purposes.” Not all of these will make you a million dollars. But if you live in the present moment and focus your full attention on what you are doing you will find true fulfillment in the smallest of things.

With that being said finding YOUR PASSION and making a living at it is the true question to be answered. And passion is found in the HEART. Your heart lets you know when you are passionate about what you are doing. It usually comes when you are providing a service to or being of service for others in some way.

Once you find your passion then you can use your HEAD to operationalize it. Your heart gives you the vision and Your head operationalizes the tactical plan to bring it to fruition!

So here are 3 key ways to recognize what your heart wants you to hear:

1. Your heart will use your Intuition to communicate to you and let you know that you are aligned with your passion. You will feel a “knowing” in your whole body, a sense of peace, a sense of purpose.

2. When you are aligned with your passion you will have boundless energy! Even when you are tired you will still get ideas and feel a sense of excitement about your passion

3. Normally we are already very aware in our hearts of what our passion is. And in most cases we have already experienced it at some point in our lives. But we discount it with our minds before we give ourselves a chance!

Your worst day doing what you love will always outweigh your BEST day doing what you find to be mundane or hate!
