How would your business improve if you constructed it around a sense of purpose and your most important values?
Many of us are familiar with the “follow your bliss” theme.
- How do we know what we want?
- What is our mission?
- How do we bring a sense of purpose to our daily life?
- How do we find our niche?
There’s a myth around career and business development that goes like this:
if we engage in self-assessment, if we pull into ourselves enough, we will be given a sense of our mission. Our life’s purpose will be revealed, and we will be able, from that moment on, to effortlessly be on a pre-defined path.
Wouldn’t it be nice? If it were that easy?
Instead, self-assessment reveals some truths about ourselves. Then, we must repeatedly test our ideas. We may go through periods that feel like failure but slowly reveal our purpose.
This process can be painful and lonely, especially in the beginning.
However, with the support of our peers, it is more fun and exponentially more likely to succeed.
