How do you know what your purpose is?

What makes you angry?  What brings you to tears?  What gives you joy?  What excites you?  What moves you deeply inside?  Reread this list of questions.  Pay attention to what stirs in your emotions and mind when you dwell on each one.

Let me give you an example.  When you’re watching specific scenes in movies, do you get a crazy feeling deep inside your heart and gut pulling at you.  You may not know it, but that’s your spirit trying to tell you something.

Here’s another example.  Are there certain things that happen in the world, that you see on the news, that you see depicted in movies, that you cannot bear to watch or hear?  You may not know it, but that’s your spirit trying to move you.

Your soul knows it’s calling.  It tugs and pulls at your heart and mind when it sees what aligns with its purpose.  It is telling you what your purpose is supposed to be.  Try to be overly self-aware!

Self-awareness is a powerful thing.  Learn it.  Embrace it.  And then learn from it!

How do you know what your purpose is?

This thing… your purpose… is likely much bigger than you are.  It is likely much bigger than you are comfortable with in reality.  It will push you to become the absolute fullest most complete version of yourself.  It will require you breaking out of the habits you have created in your life and creating a new level of strategic discipline in order to step into it.


Greatness comes in many forms.  In many sizes.  Your greatness may be raising up the next leader.  Your greatness may be becoming the next leader.  Your greatness may be having lasting effect on that one life that no one else can reach.  Do not underestimate what YOUR personal greatness and purpose is and could be.

God works through people.  All forward (and backwards) change are created by and caused by people.  What we do and do not do is what write history.

What is your purpose in life’s history book?

Start paying attention to all the little and large signs.  Pray about it.  And be open to find out what your purpose is.
