When you are being purposeful you are fulfilling a deep-seated need that all humans have. There is contentment and peace in following a purpose that serves who you are and want to be.
“True happiness… is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”―Helen Keller
Our Being Purposeful development programme leads delegates through the challenge of identifying their true purpose in life. If being purposeful is such a satisfying and fulfilling way of living, why do so many folk dismiss it?
Once a person connects with their purpose not only does a light bulb go on in their mind but their body can go through a transformation also. The fact is, not living to a purpose can leave you adrift and you will be pulled and manipulated to serve someone else’s whims. Choosing to be proactive and define your own purpose will act as a safeguard to the manipulation of others and life on the drama triangle. You will know if an action or decision is good for you…your gut will tell you.
This raises a complex conflict. Is it selfish to follow your own purpose? Aren’t we supposed to think about others and help others? Isn’t being focused on your own purpose just being self-interested?
This self and others construct can cause havoc in relationships and within groups such as families and teams or community groups. This ‘self & others’ construct is central to the work we do on our development programmes.
