The «purpose quest» Volume 2.5 ̶ My answer (so far)

“So, what’s the outcome of all this now?”, you may ask. “What’s your purpose?” I am sharing it here below with you.

Values that drive me are:

Belonging
Excitement
Making a difference

As for my purpose and how I want to life this, I stuck with the golden circle format because I feel that this is a very effective way of summarizing the essence of it all in three logical and simple questions. Seems easy enough, but the answers have taken four months to emerge and get refined. Now I am happy with the result.

My WHY: To inspire others so that they can connect to their true self and act from a mindset of abundance. I do this because I want to enable human connectedness as the catalyst for creating a peaceful, creative and sustainable future.
My HOW: I provide positive energy and share my own story in a sincere, humble and kind way. I am curious to get to the core of things and bring new ideas and perspectives to life
My WHAT: I facilitate, teach and coach. I work with teams and individuals. I publish my insights (blog, talks, podcast,…) to create ripples

By the way, these notes on my “why, how and what” were the first thing that I created with my newly acquired facilitator kit, marking the beginning of my life as a freelancer in the space of transformation and team enablement.

Now I need you: Please let me know in the comments below how you think this fits to how you have come to know me so far. All aligned? Any surpirses? I am keen to get your feedback!

To be continued…

In line with the zeitgeist of #iterations and #permanentbeta, my purpose quest is not finished today. I am being introduced to colour mirrors as a new approach to create insight and understanding for others and myself. Kate Griffiths kindly agreed to mentor me and take me by the hand and there are also other things that I would love to try. I find myself wondering what my totem animal looks like. 🙂

The journey continues. I am reading this book as a preparation for the first session with Kate.

When I publish and live out my purpose now as above, I will see what works and what doesn’t and from that I can reflect on what that means for my continued development. I am looking forward to what it will be like to read this post again in a year’s time and I bet my perspective will be different then again.

There is no such thing as one reality – it’s always seen through one or more lenses, different perspectives and filters and always evolving.

I wish you, if you have read and stuck with me this far, that you may find your purpose at a pace and through routes that suit you as an individual. Or maybe you have already found it and are on it. And if you think you don’t need any of this purpose stuff, then that’s OK, too. 🙂 Take what you need and leave what you don’t. We’re all weird in different ways and that’s where the beauty lies. The awesome in me bows to the awesome in you. Namaste!

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.

Heraclitus, Greek philosopher born in 544 b.c. (and I think this is meant to be true for all genders)
