How to Figure Out What to Do With Your Life!

Hello Unstoppable Woman,

What is your life purpose?

What do you want to do with your life?

What kind of impact do you want to make ?

Yup! These are the questions of the day!

I receive so many emails from unstoppable women who have the following concerns:

 

  • I don’t know what I want to do with my life.
  • I need to figure out where to start.
  • I am unclear about what path to take.
  • I want to figure out what I am good at.
  • I want to figure out my passion.
  • I don’t know whether I should stay or leave…
  • I don’t know if this is right for me...
  • I don’t want to commit to a specific path because I am afraid that I might change my mind later on...
  • I can’t believe I am XX years old and I still haven’t figured out what I want to do with my life and so forth...

In response to the above,
This week, I would like to ask you a simple question—one that I sometimes ask my coaching clients when they lack clarity about what they want to do with their lives.

Tip:
When you answer this question from a place of truth, you will instantly recognize what your priorities need to be, what you should focus on, what you need to pursue or not pursue, what decisions you need to make, what you want to and should start doing with your life. 

Drum roll please…

Dear unstoppable woman,

1. How would you like to be remembered? What kind of impact do you want to make?

(Hint: write down your response and put it where you can see it daily)

I want to be remembered for/The impact I would like to make is…

……………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………….....

………………………………………………………………………………….. 

2. To help you answer this question…here is a simple exercise:

Imagine that you are 80 years old and a group of people have come to thank you for impacting their lives. It is a great moment indeed!

a) What are these people thanking you for?

b) What kind of impact have you made on their lives?

c) Who are these people whose lives you have touched?

3. What can you do today to start making the kind of impact that you want to be remembered for?


Smile!

Keep me posted!
