The One Question to Ask Yourself to Set You on Your Path
"I'm kind of having a panic that it's nearly halfway through the year and I literally have no idea what I'm doing next with my career or life.”
Doesn’t this sound all too familiar? We can get caught up in watching the years slip by, only to be shaken awake by a fear that perhaps we’re not living out our purpose, that we’re not on our right paths or that we have no clue what we want to do with our lives. This is an experience that the majority of us have throughout our lives on earth, and often more than once. It’s simply a part of our journey of self discovery.
Would we ever make a change or ask ourselves what we want to do if we don’t experience this conundrum?
If you’re finding yourself panicking over lack of purpose or direction, listen to the below Deep Imagining Hypnosis for clarity.
Then ask yourself:
What have you always been really really good at?
What comes naturally to you that requires so little effort?
Your friends and others seek you out for this talent or gift?
What you enjoy doing more than anything else in the world? You could literally spend all day doing it and get lost?
Who do you know that does something like this and has made it very successful and self-supporting?
This will help you to shed light on your Authentic Code. Your Authentic Code consists of the 4 values you cherish most, discovered through a short questionnaire. Our routines, ruts, and daily activities leach energy can distract us from our Authentic Code. The more we ignore our Authentic Code, the less we can feel that we are living our purpose.
This doesn’t have to be focused on career, it could be as simple as rolling on the floor with puppies, reading good books, traveling to foreign lands. What gives purpose to your soul?
Think of the days you’ve loved the most, the activities that have brought you the most joy. Take the kernels from each one of these memories and find a common thread. Was it because you were surrounded by family, in new places, playing a sport you love? What was it that made you feel so alive?
How can you take this value, your Authentic Code, and allow it to drive your decisions? To illuminate your purpose?
We are all capable of following a life path that lights up our soul and pays us in joy. It is purely up to you to take hints from what brings you the most happiness and enjoyment, weave that into your daily activities, seek out and make space for opportunities that allow you to prioritize your Authentic Code.
If I could do anything, anything at all, what would I do? Where would I invest my energy if I had all the time in the world to do so?
Your purpose will unveil itself as you go.
