Knowing yourself and what inspires you is essential because ultimately when you hit the challenges you'll need your sense of purpose, your inspiration to carry you through.
Before you get into setting intentions or goals or making yourself promises for the year, first connect to what inspires you, develop a sense of purpose, get tuned into what you are here to leave behind*.
This is where you need to create a vision. A vision comes from a combination of your inspired imagination (possibilities that excite you) and your wisdom, the knowledge you've gained over the years plus your inner knowing (yes, trust yourself and don't get influenced by what others tell you unless what they say feels right for you and inspires you).
And then once you have that vision it's time to start thinking how you can make that vision a reality. What steps do you need to take to make it happen?
I've found it helpful to figure out the steps, picking one as a goal, a tangible thing to make happen and leaving space in my life for flow to bring me the opportunities to fulfil some of the other steps.
This technique also stops me getting overwhelmed and exhausted by my own rigid planning, lets me get my sense of achievement by setting one specific, achievable goal at a time, but also leaves room for me to be surprised and delighted by the opportunities that are given to me to achieve the other steps without me having had to stress about them.
Of course I have to have an idea of what the other steps may be in order for me to know which opportunities are the right ones for me to take, so being clear about your overall vision and how it may become a reality is really helpful!
If you'd like some help figuring out your purpose and creating a vision that inspires and excites you then please book in a free call with me. I'd be delighted to help you get started on creating a life that you love, one that leaves you feeling inspired and delighted every day.
*Thank you, James Lavers, for this gorgeous phrase.

WORK WITH ME
I'm Helen Elizabeth Evans, a London based life purpose coach and consultant. I work with women in business (and open-minded men!) to powerfully awaken their life purpose work, using a unique combination of scientific hand and fingerprint analysis, deep intuitive skills and practical business acumen running my own businesses for the last 21 years.
I'd love to start a conversation about whether we're a good fit to work together. Simply use this link to arrange an informal chat. There's no hard sell. Just a warm, down-to-earth conversation and a straight forward, honest assessment of whether working with me would be right for you.
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 am known as the UK's No.1 Scientific Hand & Fingerprint Analyst as I introduced the system to the UK in 2010. It is the most accurate profiling tool I have encountered. 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 catalyst 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.
