Find Your Purpose
Welcome to a Magical Realness Masterclass – where the episode length is about the same, but the intention is crazy intensified. The goal is to give you transformative action steps that you can start practicing right now. In this masterclass, we are walking through how to find your purpose and the four-cornered map that leads you that that awareness.
BRITTANY MARIE, YOUR HOST
Finding your purpose always feels like a mystery. We can get passing images, pings, or messages of what it may be, but they fleeting, weak, or confusing. But then, if it was easy to take grasp of, would it be worth it to pursue? That’s a question that we can only answer for ourselves. For me, I know that if it wasn’t a journey to explore, I would probably take it for granted and possibly let it fly away from my person.
BENEFITS OF KNOWING YOUR PURPOSE
It can make you feel autonomous and confident.
It can boost your mental health, helping you feel gratitude, joyful, and release stress bodily, physical stress.
You can gain clarity in what to pursue – such as degrees or certifications, your life plan, your lifestyle, what kind of partner and friendships you need, how to use your voice and influence, and so on.
You can experience a greater sense of fulfillment in the tasks and projects you complete, and the things you accomplish in your life.
It can help reveal what values you hold and how you want to flow in life.
YOUR PURPOSE AND YOUR SENSE OF I
WHAT & WHY: Purpose
WHO: Sense of I
HOW: aligned strategy and inspired action
THE FOUR CORNERS OF PURPOSE
your sense of drive
INTERNAL PILLAR – Core Values
EXTERNAL PILLAR – What I Love
The keyword for passion is intensity. Passion is an intense emotional pull or enthusiasm towards something or someone. But the bit here is the something – because you can have passion for anything, and multiple things. It’s anything that you can’t get enough of, or in some way or another, consumes your thoughts, your attractions, your desires, and your actions.
your sense of place
INTERNAL PILLAR – Natural Gifts
EXTERNAL PILLAR – Acquired Skills
This one can be harder to describe, but essentially it’s the field of work that intrigues you. For instance, a health practitioner is a vocation. Sometimes we can use our vocations and our professions interchangeably, and this is usually done for those who may not have a good understanding of the work we do. For our purposes, it’s simply the area, field, business, occupation, or calling that you hold intrigue or interest for.
your sense of impact
INTERNAL PILLAR – Character Strengths
EXTERNAL PILLAR – World Needs
For some, mission and purpose are the same thing. Although our mission can be closely linked and tied to our purpose, they are not one in the same. A mission is the greater task or assignment we carry and bring forward to large communities or with everyone we work with. A mission can be on-going and endless, perhaps only coming to a close when a deadline of some kind arises. You can think of it as your objective and the way you are going to carry that out.
your sense of occupation
INTERNAL PILLAR – Can Be Paid For
EXTERNAL PILLAR – What Inspires Me
A step up from vocation, this is the particular role that you walk in to make income and base your actions of business through. So, just as before when I used the example of a health provider, a profession tied to that would be a registered nurse. So the profession is a more specific look into the work that you are pursuing and practicing within your life.
