How To Live Your Life On Purpose

Our days are always filled with things to do and people to see, opportunities all around us and choices to make as to what we will do next.

But Living On Purpose doesn’t mean you wake up with the mind-set of ‘I will purposefully get all my stuff done’!


Instead it is about Planning your time ahead to achieve your desired outcome and move forward into the life space you want. Evaluating what is going on in your day, week, month, year or years depending on how ambitious you want to be.


While it is all good to get your chores and life stuff done … wouldn’t it be wonderful to achieve so much more than that! By serving others to help them achieve, by learning something new to improve your career, spending a little more time on a hobby that centers you, so you fell more relaxed, refreshed in your mind.


So here is what I propose …


Work out what you really want!

Is there something you want to do, be and or have?

Spend time thinking about it, brain storm if you don’t

have anything clear at this point … if you do this

properly you will find your desires.


Set your intention for the day/week/month/year!

Work out 3-5 things you need to do/achieve to position

you for your next step.

You may want to do this for a few areas of your life …

Family, Career, Health, Spirituality whatever areas you need to work on.


Ask yourself

How long do you think it will take to achieve each of your dreams or goals? Once you know how long it will take, work back from there to get a starting point.

Also ask yourself Who, What, Why, When questions to really focus in on details.


It sounds a little silly to work backwards but once you try it you will see how much easier it is to work out your time line.

For example  – If you are training for a competition, you work your dates back from competition day to know what fitness level is required to be at your peak for that day and time.  


The more deliberate your actions are to achieve your desired outcome the more purposeful life you live!


Something you might also consider while you are planning to Live Your Life On Purpose is … What impact will my goals and dreams have for those around me? 

If you can positively impact others with what you learn and how you grow, strive, overcome challenges and live your outcome; The more you will inspire others and become a role model for others and see them want to improve themselves.  


As you Live Your Life On Purpose you will achieve more, feel more intensely about what you can achieve for yourself and the impact you have on others.

During your journey of purpose you also find your true path and understand more deeply the reason you are here and fulfill your intention.

  1. I love the idea of working backwards … reverse engineering the positive outcome and how to get there!

    Can you imagine how beautiful this world would be if so many more people would ponder how to live their lives on purpose?

    Thank you for your suggestions on how to manifest a purpose driven life.


    1. My first taste of working backwards was with bodybuilding! I didn’t think to apply it to life for a long while, now I get it more so look out world lol
