Anchor and realize your purpose in life

“Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a
nightmare.” — Japanese Proverb

There are different ways that you can bring awareness of your life purpose into your daily activities.

One easy way is to write out your life purpose and put copies of it in places where you will see it frequently. Stick it on the fridge, on your bathroom mirror, on your desk, beside the telephone, on the dashboard of your car — you get the idea. Or you might select an icon or symbol that represents your purpose and, again, spread it around.

For example, if your purpose is to bring happiness to the world, you might want to use happy faces as an icon. Or hearts to represent a purpose around love. Any symbol will work if it reminds you of your purpose. When you begin to realize that the icons are no longer catching your attention, move them to different locations or find a new symbol that will once again spark your awareness.

Rituals are powerful ways of anchoring your purpose. You might choose a short morning and/or evening prayer in which you ask for support in following your purpose. Or you might affirm your purpose at the start of each journaling session. Find strategies that work for you, and stick with them.
