Isn’t this what we hear from most self-help and positivity gurus.
Have a purpose.
A purpose that is beyond yourself to find meaning in your life. Without a grand purpose, you are just coasting.
But let’s pause for a moment.
What about the doctors and nurses who find purpose in their everyday work?
What about the firefighters who save lives every day?
What about people who show up for work every day and contribute to the growth of a company?
It diminishes our impact.
Our purpose is to find meaning in our every day work. In our contribution that we are ALREADY doing.
Each day we show up and contribute our best self, we are fulfilling our purpose.
And each day of purposeful living leads to our grand purpose.
Show up in whatever work you do with a sense of purpose and contribution.
Acknowledge that the work you are doing IS purposeful AND of service to others. That THIS is your PURPOSE.
