Deciding to Live on Purpose
"Making a decision can put you on the path of fulfilling your purpose." -Lia Dunlap (02:17-02:27)
Have you contemplated the passing of family members, the deaths of people you've known in communities, and watching people come to grips with the finiteness of life, the idea and the concept of a life lost too soon?
Do you have questions like, "Have they fulfilled their purpose in life?” or "How about me, what's my purpose in life?" In today's episode, let's learn how to make decisions to live on purpose.
Part One of 'Deciding to Live on Purpose.'
Has a loved one passed away and didn't get that chance or have yet to finish or complete what they wanted to do in the world?
Never let the same thing happen to you. Making a decision can put you on the path of fulfilling your purpose. And when you do so when you constantly make one decision after the other with your purpose in mind, you're tapping into the flow of life force you're part of.
And you're leaving these ripples, you're leaving these impressions on the world, whether we are doing it on purpose or not.
Your purpose is tied to the impact you make. Each of us, even in our failings and befuddlement, has an impact. Each of us steps into the day, making an impact.
And when you or someone you know and love passes, dies the impact they've already had on others doesn't go away. Their absence, the vacuum they've left, also has an impact.
"Even the smallest thing that we are, when we're truly uniquely ourselves, can make the most profound impact." - Lia Dunlap (06:02-06:11)
When we think of the impact, we often push ourselves that it has to be big, it has to bold. It has to be vivid or expansive or change the world. That is an idealized version of impact. Essentially, even the smallest thing that we are, when we're genuinely uniquely ourselves, can make the most profound impact.
Part Two of 'Deciding to Live on Purpose.'
In those daily moments that we tap into our hearts and minds, our inner knowing is telling us that it's ours to do and follow-through to get the best of our purpose.
Whenever you're stuck in a place of thinking that we're not doing enough, it's a lie.
The universe is one song, and one song requires harmony. All of the little notes, all of the tiny facets of who we are, are part of that song. Being off-key comes from being out of alignment. But the purist note is still inside of us. The purest part of who we are and the unique flavor that we add. That's in us all the time.
"It's a lie that you're not doing enough and that whatever you are right now isn't enough. You're here. Your voice matters. Your ideas matter. Your point of view matters." - Lia Dunlap (06:54-07:09)
We don't always know how it's going to matter once we're gone. We don't know what will be completely transformed and changed by what we said or how we work or the product or service we put into the world.
But, without a doubt that whatever that is, it's all ready right now in you, and therefore you are enough. Consequently, you are precisely the person you were meant to be at this moment. It's not about creating something different. It's about expressing your whole beingness in a way that the world hums.
If you permit yourself to act on the decision, you will be in alignment, and you will be on purpose, and you will have the impact that you're meant to have on the world. It's that simple.
