Have you heard the saying "if you don't know where you are headed, any road will get you there"?
When I first heard this, I thought wow - this is great I can't go wrong! But as I reflected further I began to wonder some more about that.
We can spend a lot of time wandering down different paths and that's ok. But what I realised is when you don't choose there is a sense of aimless wandering.
Have you spent time wondering what your own purpose is in life? Telling yourself that if only you knew, then you would do that?
You may have spend time wondering is this is it? Is this what I'm meant to be doing?
But what if you could choose your purpose? What if you could decide right here, right now?
What would you choose?
Would you choose to bring a smile to the face of every person you meet?
Would you choose to raise awareness of a worthy cause?
Would you choose to adventure the world and learn as much as you can about different cultures?
You see you can choose a purpose anytime you like and start living in alignment with that purpose.
You don't have to wait to discover it and you can allow your purpose to evolve and grow as you do.
In starting my performance coaching business I chose my vision - a world without masks.
And a mission - driving performance, removing masks, one heart at a time.
So my purpose is to live a life without a mask and to help others do the same. To show up, be honest, to be vulnerable, to acknowledge we are not perfect and nor do we have to be.
My purpose means that each day I choose to show up, focus on driving performance. Doing so in a way that allows each of us to be the very best versions of ourselves.
This weekend as I completed Sydney's iconic 'City to Surf' run for the very first time - I reflected on the path I chose, the one of growth, the one of openness and I consider how much more fully I'm living life as a result of choosing my purpose.
So now it's your turn. What would you be accomplishing if you allowed yourself the gift of choosing your own purpose?
Choose a path, do it now!
