Are Your Purpose and Vision Aligned?

S.O.U.R.C.E. of Your SuccessLast blog post I shared the concept of S.O.U.R.C.E., which is the foundation for building a successful life and business.

As promised, I’m now going to share the next two tenants of living a S.O.U.R.C.Eful life.

3.    U = Understanding Your Purpose
A lot of us think it’s really hard to find your purpose.  A big reason for this is because there’s a lot of chatter in our head.  However, if you take some time to listen your soul and connect with Spirit, your purpose will actually speak to you.  The good news is that even if you’re not clear on your purpose, it’s in there.  I suggest you try meditation which is a fabulous way to quiet your mind and allow your soul to speak directly to you.    Then try this – sit down and start writing an inventory of what you like, don’t like and what other people are complimenting you on.  It’s a great starting point to identify your purpose, and then you can start creating new possibilities.

4.    R = Redefine, Realize, and Realign Your Vision
When you know who you are, you can see more clearly where you need to be in the world (which goes hand in hand with understanding your purpose).  Your vision is not just your being, it’s what you’re doing in the world.  Elements of your vision are right in front of you, and when you’re in alignment, you’re going to notice signs that are hinting at how your purpose lines up with your vision.  A great way to start on defining, realizing and aligning your vision is to create a vision board.  You can use cardboard paper, cutouts from magazines and scotch tape…or there’s a very cool new application called Pinterest where you can clip photos, words and images on your own online bulletin board.  Go do that now.  It’s not only fun, it will help you crystallize your purpose into pictures.

In my last blog post in this series, I will cover the last two letters in the S.O.U.R.C.E. methodology.
