Also known as: Where the Rubber Meets the Road
When you’ve done the inner work to uncover your Inherited Purpose so you can begin to be responsible for it, and you’ve clarified your true, Divinely Inspired Life Purpose, you’ve set the stage for a profound and lasting transformation in your life. However, the work isn’t done yet. In fact, the last piece can be the most challenging and ultimately most transformational of all; it’s living true to your purpose.
There’s an old coaching formula I learned from my first coach, Judy, over 20 years ago. It goes like this:
I + A = G&D
I = Insights
G&D = Growth and Development
Of course, you may have already guessed that the “A” stands for Action. You see, uncovering your Inherited Purpose and clarifying your Divinely Inspired Life Purpose are major insights – mega-insights in that they have the potential to transform your entire life. But they are still just insights. And like Judy once told me, “Insights are like a pinch in the buttocks; momentarily interesting but hardly life transforming.” Combine these insights with action, though, and you have true growth and development in your life.
Living a life on purpose is a process, a journey. Getting to the place where the people who know would say, “Yes, your life is a reflection of your true purpose,” doesn’t happen over night, but it can happen, and it doesn’t need to take decades to be, be known and to start expressing your life purpose. It does take being in action and not getting distracted or derailed by your Inherited Purpose.
So, as we close out this special report, take a moment to write down the insights you’ve gleaned. Then, pick at least one of those insights and write out an action or two that you WILL take to begin to integrate the insight into your life.
