This is an Action Exercise to Help You Discover Your Greatest Strengths, Your Deepest Passions,and Ultimately Your Life Purpose.

 

 

Step 1:

  • Get out a piece of paper and a pen.

We are going to look back at your past, at different ages, to see what you were passionate about at those ages. We are also going to look ahead into your future.

Step 2:

  • Write down the numbers below on your sheet of paper, putting them along the side of the page, just as they appear below, but leave much more space between the numbers as you will be writing things down and will need more space to do it in. These are your different ages, starting with 7 years old.

7 –

14 –

18 –

23 –

33 –

43 –

63 –

83-

 

 Step 3:

  • Think back to when you were 7 years old, and beside the number 7 write down what you wanted to  be when you grew up, and what you loved to do. Maybe you loved to read, or listen to music, or dance,  or camp, or loved cars or  motorcycles or wanted to travel in space….you get the idea.
  • Write as much as you can remember beside each age category. Use as many pages as you need to do this. The more you can write, the better, as the more you are really tapping into your heart and soul and passions, and the more it will reveal to you of your purpose.
  •  Keep doing this until you reach your current age, and write down what you are most passionate about doing right now.  Go ahead and do this exercise now, I promise it will be very revealing to you and will help you to see your purpose in this life much more clearly.

Only proceed to the next step when you have completed the above exercise.

Step 4:

Here is where it gets interesting, because you are now going to ask your future self to tell you  what you are doing in the future. You are going to take a Quantum Jump to your future that is already done, and ask for guidance from your future self. You might be thinking that cannot be done, but you actually do it all the time without realizing it.

  • Look ahead 5 years in the future, and see yourself, see what you are doing, where you are living ,what  you are driving, who you are with, what is around you, etc…the more complete you can make the picture the better. Don’t worry if you have it right, or judge what you see, just relax and let the images come into your mind, then write it down. Avoid the temptation to second guess it, talk yourself out of it, give yourself all the reasons for why that can’t be, just go with the very first thing you see and write it down.
  •  Now do it 10 years in the future
  • then 20 years, etc. going as far out into the future as you want to.

Step 5:

  • Look for the common thread that binds them all together.

For example, maybe at 7 years old you loved to dance, and at 14 you loved to play music and at 18 you loved music and dancing and so on and so on…if that theme shows up all the way through your life, chances are very good that music and dance are your passion, and you may have dreamed of being a musician or a dancer, but somewhere along the way you lost that dream, or someone you really believed in told you it was impossible, to give it up.

Step 6:

  • Answer the following question for yourself.

How can you bring that dream or passion back into your life and bring it into your future? Can you learn to play an instrument that you have always wanted to play? Take classes and learn new dance steps? Just because we did not make a career from our passion, does not mean we cannot still make it a part of our lives and derive great pleasure and joy from it.

 

Testimonial from a client

When I did your first exercise about the common thread in your
dreams from the age of 7, 14, 23, 33 etc… I re-discovered  that I wanted to be a Doctor and to heal people…as I did the exercise further I realised that I didn’t necessarily want to be a medical doctor but a PhD…ie Dr Jesvir Mahil…someone who has contributed innovatively to human knowledge in a manner that heals and benefits people in living their lives…thank you  for helping to confirm for me that I need to complete my PhD in Equine Assisted Education as this is an unfulfilled wish from my teenage years (to be a Doctor).”

I hope this exercise helps you in some way , even if it simply confirms that you are indeed on the right path for you

 

To Your Success and Freedom,
