What is a Purpose Statement?
Simply put, your purpose statement addresses why you are here on this planet, at this time. It is ‘that which gives your life a sense of fulfillment’ (Mark Thurston); ‘what gives your life meaning’ (Jacqueline McMakin); ‘our positive contribution to the world and our fellow beings’ (Shakti Gawain).
Everyone has a purpose, whether you know it or not. We are living on purpose all the time. Sometimes people have a deep sense of their purpose, yet you do not know how to put it into words. Once the language is clear, it becomes easier to be intentional about living on it.
Our purpose sits in our unconscious and we go about our daily activities often without its awareness. So what would life be like if you actually wrote a purpose statement and lived it more fully? Do you want to find out?
Creating your personal purpose statement is one of the most wonderful gifts you can give to yourself and humanity. The total package of defining your values, purpose statement and coaching give the relationship with yourself and others more clarity, definition and intention.
How do you create a purpose statement?
- We go through a story telling process.
- I, the coach, am very present and I deeply listen to you.
- I will extract important words and phrases from your stories and share them with you.
- From here you will choose what fits most for you and then we will begin to write your statement.
People say this process is very enlightening and rewarding. Once the statement is created you can then live with it and tweak it for more clarity and vision.
How long does it take?
It takes anywhere from 2-3 hours to complete the full process. It is conducted either in person or by phone.
