#5 Life Purpose: Permission to be Me!
To get that sense of satisfaction that comes from living or fulfilling your Life Purpose you need to grasp one major fact:
The first step in experiencing the sense of meaning that comes from living Your Life Purpose is to fully express your true self, regardless of anyone else's expectations. Should I underline the 'regardless of anyone else's expectations'?
The problem is we often have a very diminished idea of who we really are, which is why we play small or hide out or give credence to other people's advice about who we are and what we'd be good at.
What I love about my experience helping others find and understand their Life Purpose is how many of my clients tell me that hearing their Live Purpose was a relief, like someone had taken a massive weight off their shoulders, as if they finally had permission to be who they really were and stop trying to fit someone else's mould of who they should be.
What if you sat yourself down for a minute and just listened to all the "I need to do this...", "I must do that...", "I should...", "I have to..." thoughts that go through your mind? Then ask yourself "Says who?". Then ask yourself which of those things do I really want to do? Not out of fear of what someone might think. Not out of a hope or need for some kind of response from someone. But simply because it feels right for you, it feels like something you genuinely want to do because it matters to you, just you.
You don't need to be anyone other than who you already are. You were born with the perfect personality for the work you are here to do. Not everyone will like you being you, but you're not here to serve them, you're here to serve your Purpose not theirs. (Turning around a favourite saying of my mother's when I was growing up, I say "Invite them to take the plank out of their own eyes before they focus on the splinter in yours!")
If you need confirmation and clarity about who you are, a bigger vision of yourself (that no one else needs to know about unless you want them to) then I'd recommend discovering your Life Purpose.

I have been running my own businesses from a home office since 1996 and am passionate about business being the vehicle for our freedom. I am also deeply passionate about us each having a purpose on this planet and it's my job to help you find and live yours.

I also have a masters in NLP and have studied astrology and psychology for years - getting your mind to work for you rather than against you!
My clients tell me I am a powerful kick-starter for their purpose, helping them clarify their focus and create an inspired vision aligned with their purpose. They describe me as a highly intuitive, deeply powerful, passionate, authentic and an extremely practical truth teller who makes them laugh, feel safe and free to be their true selves. I help them discover who they really are, find their true purpose, give them a spiritual blueprint for their life expression and help them create a business that is based on their life purpose, so that they can live happy, fulfilled lives without feeling like its all a struggle or just hum drum.
