When your life is meaningful, fulfilling and purposeful you carry in your heart the passion to create something extraordinary for others and for yourself

Wouldn’t the world be a great place if we all discovered happiness! What if we had the opportunity to find our purpose in life? Imagine for a moment how awesome the world would be: How fabulous we would feel: We’d be empowered, enriched and fulfilled.
Whether you know it or not, you have a purpose: Your life has a purpose. Each of us is put on this earth for a reason: We have a calling. Countless people throughout history realized they were destined to take a certain path and make a difference in the lives of others. They did exactly that and often against incredible odds.
It’s not necessary to either stand in the spotlight or do something earth-shattering to make an impact on others. To make a significant difference, you need not strive to be exceptional. Not everyone will change the world. Each of us however, has the capacity to change lives even, no matter how seemingly small that change might be.
The following five points can assist you to discover your purpose:
• Stop and think about what makes you truly happy
- The things that get you out of bed every morning
- What brings a smile to your face?
- Is there something you look forward to every day
• Take small steps to begin working on your purpose
- It can stop you becoming disheartened
- Make your progress measurable
- Record all your actions in a diary/journal
• Don’t allow problems and issues to impact your passion
- Know that problems are going to come along from time to time
- Don’t be disheartened when problems occur
- Stand back and look at the issues objectively
• Call on assistance if and when necessary
- Make a plan of the resources you’ll need
- Gather a reliable group of supporters around you
- Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance
• Write down your dreams and desires and read them every day
- Use a diary to record all your dreams and goals
- Initiate a step by step strategy
- Update your actions each day and celebrate successes

No matter what job you do or community project you undertake, you have the ability to embrace your purpose and find happiness in your life. If you love what you do and do what you truly love then you’ve begun an awesome life enrichment process.
When you do your best every day you have in your hands the opportunity to add immeasurable value to your own life with the capacity to enrich and empower others. Your positive approach becomes a real example for other people to emulate.

Your pursuit of happiness and unquenchable desire to make a difference in the lives of those who require assistance and support is a very powerful step towards embracing your purpose.
Happiness comes about through initiating harmony in your life. Whether in the workplace, the home or within your community, there are several things you can do to make happiness a fundamental aspect of your life:

• Learn to like, love, respect and understand yourself
- Believe that you’re the most important person in the world
- Have faith in your gut feelings and emotions
- Empower and enrich your spirit through honesty and integrity
• Appreciate the warm and wonderful people in your life
- Give credit where due
- Offer support and encouragement whenever necessary
- Reward those who add value to your life
• Have only positive and powerful perceptions of others
- Think and speak the best of those around you
- Think positive thoughts about people
- Communicate with passion, colour and respect
• Only every speak optimistically and cheerfully of and to others
- If you can’t say something positive, don’t say anything
- Be respectful and supportive of people
- Allow people in your life, to share in your life and success
• Embrace positive change and understand it’s place in your life
- A negative attitude will always stifle affirmative change
- Change brings a fresh new air to your world
- Understand the power that positive change brings

Never under-estimate your capacity to make a difference or initiate exceptional change within the wider community. Working for a charity or assisting a neighbor; coaching a junior football team or caring for an abandoned animal; smiling to a stranger or having time for an elderly person on the street will see you embracing joy and fulfilling a purpose. If it makes you happy – if you get that warm and fuzzy feeling inside - and you love what you do, then you are in pursuit of your purpose.
Seize the opportunity to enrich and empower others with both hands: Watch as your life begins to undergo some monumental changes and you become an extraordinary force for good in the global community.
Imagine the possibilities ……
