“Balance, peace, and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them.” ~ Thomas Kinkade
Yes! There are tangible benefits – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – to living our lives with purpose.
The obvious one is that purpose gives our life meaning and fulfillment. It feels GOOD to know we make a difference in our own unique way.
Here are some others that might surprise you:
Living with purpose actually can help simplify our life, much in the same way having clear values can. When we have a clear purpose it’s easier to make decisions, knowing what aligns with our purpose and what doesn’t.
Purpose helps us focus our lives. It’s much more clear what’s important, so it’s easier to prioritize our time toward the things that make us happy in the big picture and also in our daily activities.
Because purpose motivates us, we can experience a higher level of productivity and achievement.
That extra motivation, fueled by passion, can give us more energy and vitality.
Purpose can also lead to us feeling more in control. With a higher perspective for our life, we feel more responsible for the direction of our steps.
Purpose also can help us feel more peaceful. Without a sense of purpose we can feel lost, as if we are looking for something. Purpose leads to contentment.
And for many people, living on purpose helps to create a fulfilling spiritual life. If your beliefs encourage you to live specific principles, a life purpose is an important and helpful vehicle.
Got purpose? It’s good for you!
EnJOY your day!
