Here is a simple exercise you can do to not only find your purpose, but also to start to monetise it as well. To do this exercise, make a short list of the following things:
- Things you love to do
- Things you are good at
- Things you can get paid for
- Things the world needs
Now arrange your answers to the categories above in such a way that it allows you to see where your answers fall in the categories below. Find the overlaps?
PASSION is created when you do the things you love and the things you are good at.
PROFESSION is when what we are good at meets things we can get paid to do.
VOCATION is when what we are paid to do is what the world needs.
MISSION is found when the things we love are the things the world needs.
TO FIND YOUR PURPOSE find the place where all four of these pieces come together. I call this The Mosaic way of Purpose. The 3rd practice of The Mosaic is to DO WHAT YOU CAME TO DO.
Imagine for a moment living from that space. Doing what you are great at doing and loving what do. Finding a gap that needs to be filled and getting paid to do what you love doing. This is the bliss of knowing your purpose. This world awaits you. I invite you to experience it by leaving your comfort zone and entering the world between the spaces of the world you live in now, This is The Mosaic.
