Is this the year for you to figure out why you were born?

Well, if you want to answer this and see Is this the year for you to figure out why you were born, please read on as you can figure out why you were born by:

  1. Coming to know what you are strong at, and then
  2. Where you can put your strengths to best use in your life and work.

For when you do this, you will be giving yourself the best chance to live your life as a leading light both for yourself and for all those around you. (The phrase ‘leading light’ comes from a sailing term for a pair of beacons used in navigation; it now means someone who shows the way or is a leader in their own right.)

What, then, are you strong at? Now, what I mean here by ‘strength’ and ‘being strong’ relates to those activities that make you feel strong and capable when you are carrying them out. These feelings may be found in activities in which you exhibit consistent, near perfect performance. They are those activities that you do well and for which you retain a powerful appetite. They feel easy, like you need not try very hard. Perhaps they proved simple for you to pick up and you learnt them quickly. Your strengths feel innate and come from within; they are something that you find easy to tie in to, to use, to grow and develop. When you are using your strengths, you do not struggle to concentrate. Instead, you naturally stay focused and time speeds up, and as you carry on using them you continue to feel focused and time speeds up even more.

So, if you want to figure out why you were born and what you are meant to be doing with your life, start noticing the activities that when you are doing them, they…

  • Seem to come so naturally to you, it is almost as if you are not even trying when you do them;
  • Make you feel ‘in the flow’ and you can focus easily on whatever it is you are doing;
  • Keep your interest and your concentration with almost no effort;
  • Leave you feeling strong, fulfilled and powerful;
  • Draw you back to them repeatedly;
  • Hold your attention and you enjoy doing them;
  • Inspire you to keep volunteering to do them.

Knowing where your strengths lie by identifying the activities that come naturally to you, and where best you can use them, means you have figured out why you were born.

The next step is to create the life that allows you to use these activities. The choice, then, is to stay where you are in your life or to set off on an outer journey – a journey whereby you use your strengths to make the life you want to be living become an everyday reality for yourself.
If you want to follow up on what has been written here and get to read fourteen stories of people who figured out why they were born and learned to live their truth – and how you can too then please get a copy of my new book Showing Your True Colours

The work you need to be doing to live your best life

The stories and the tellers of them in my new book “Showing Your True Colours” will most likely challenge you, yet they will also get you imagining. They will give you hope, inspiration, and above all else, encourage you to figure out why you were born and the work you need to be doing to live your best life.

The stories also show that having decided to follow their true calling, these people often had no idea how everything was going to work out for them. It was a challenge to leave behind their old lives, for it often meant losing the security and safety that went with doing what they knew. While knowing what they wanted to do with their life and work, many of them were not sure how achievable this would be. At some point, they had to take a leap of faith from the life they were living to the life they wanted to live.

And living their new life affected all areas of their existence – their health, relationships, wealth, work, hobbies, interests and the legacy they will now leave behind. This can be the case for you too.
How can I promise you this? Well, for the simple reason that I lived, trained and studied to be a monk for nearly a decade, along with my knowledge gained from over thirty-plus years of working with people to enable them to answer these sorts of questions, and what I discovered about the meaning of true success by driving halfway around the world, from London to Sydney along the Silk Road. All of these experiences have enabled me to write this book and share the stories of other people just like you, who have found their own answers – as you will too, having finished it. Yes, that really can be the case. Having discovered why you were born and what you were put here to do, you give yourself the best chance of living the life you want.
