What Is Your Life Purpose?

I love this quote: “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and a finer spirit of home and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”-Woodrow Wilson We all have a life purpose. Have you actually stopped for a moment and really thought about this? A life purpose is a calling, a path…that you choose. You create your purpose from experiences, interests, passions, values and most importantly from your innate strengths. Do you know what your innate strengths are? Do you apply your strengths to every aspect of your life and work? “Your purpose is anything that touches your heart and makes a difference to you.” – Marcia Wieder StrengthsFinder identified my top 5 strengths as Strategic, Maximizer, Responsibility, Futuristic, and Positivity. Discovering my strengths and aligning them to my work and daily activities has helped me create a “meaningful life.” The benefit of which is increased happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment, growth, and success. “God gives each of us special talents and gifts. It is both our privilege and our duty to make the most of them.” – Robert E.

Pssst…Hey There! Have You “Checked Out” at Work?

You are not the only one! According to Gallup’s most recent data, 70% of people are either not engaged or actively disengaged at work. Meaning, they have “checked out.” Having been in Corporate Human Resources for 15 years, I have personally witnessed employees become frustrated and angry, loose passion for the work they once loved, feel unappreciated, burn out, and develop chronic illnesses. I can honestly say I was one of them. When I left my corporate job and started my own business, I invested in a personal Coach. At my Coach’s request, I took Gallup’s StrengthsFinder to discover my top 5 strengths. It was through coaching that I learned how to align my strengths to my talents both personally and professionally. This became the foundation that transformed my life, helped me discover my unique calling, and put me on the path to lead, inspire, and serve other Professionals. If you have never taken StrengthFinder, I highly encourage you to do so. Why? Gallup’s StrengthsFinder 2.0 shows you the top 5 areas where you can shine if you work toward adding the skills, knowledge, and practice required to build your talents into strengths. Gallup defines a strength as “the ability to provide consistent, near-perfect performance in a given activity.” Aligning your strengths to your job/career role according to Gallup’s Research is transformational not only professionally, but personally. Their studies PROVE it. Learning how to apply your strengths can help you identify career roles that make the most use of your strengths or help you maximize your strengths to achieve greater success in your current role. Your unique strengths can lead...
