I am filled with purpose.
My life is rich and rewarding. I search for meaning. I listen to my heart. I analyze the things I love to do and the things I do well. I list the qualities that I want to possess. I develop a personal mission statement.
I increase my awareness. I gain a deeper understanding of myself through meditation and prayer. I make concrete plans that leverage my unique skills and strengths.
I talk with others. My path may be different, but I can learn a lot by asking others about their experiences. I share my own goals and dreams. I welcome constructive feedback.
I look at ordinary activities from a different perspective. Housework and casual conversations take on greater significance when I view them as something sacred. I imagine creating a safe home for my family and giving someone a reason to smile.
I limit distractions. I turn off the TV and let go of nonessential tasks. I devote more time and energy to my passions.
I surround myself with positive influences. I share encouragement and support with family and friends. I enjoy uplifting books and podcasts.
I check in regularly to evaluate my progress. I ensure that my daily actions match my purpose. I recognize that my purpose may shift over time. I update my priorities as needed.
Today, I embrace life. I maximize my opportunities to learn and grow. I feel happy and fulfilled when I focus on my purpose.
