Know What You Care About:
Identifying what you truly care about is one of the first steps to finding your purpose.
You may not know the answer right now, and that’s okay. After a little brainstorming and reflection, the answer will find you.
Here are a few personal questions that can help you get started. Feel free to write down your answers in a notebook so you can look back on them.
1) What are you good at?
2) What do you care about?
3) When was the last time you felt proud of yourself?
Reflect On What Matters To You:
Many of us have a long list of things we care about, which is great! However, landing on one or two things that matter to you the most can help you realize what’s important in life.
It can also help you gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the little things.
You can start by writing out a list of things that matter to you in no particular order. Once the list is complete, you can organize the list in order of importance.
Keep in mind that your values may slightly change over the years, so feel free to re-arrange or add items to the list as needed.
Recognize Your Strengths:
Every single one of your strengths and talents helps make you, you!
When we’ve been good at something for so long, sometimes we can underestimate just how talented we are.
Opening up to people who know you the best, like friends, family, or colleagues, can help you recognize and appreciate your talents.
Here are a few great questions you can ask the people in your life.
1) What do you think I’m great at?
2) What do you think I love doing?
3) How do you think I’ll make a difference in the world?
