Purpose and values: a recipe for becoming fully who you truly are

Three silhouetted people jump for joyIn a time of change, knowing your purpose and values will help you to achieve your strategic goalsprioritise your actions, and bring you eight very practical benefits.

Knowing your purpose and values will also tell you something deeper: it will show you who you are, what success means to you, what self-actualisation looks like for you.

— Your purpose is to use your two best qualities, in the ways you most love applying them, to create whatever an ideal world looks like for you.

— Your values come from remembering the times when you have experienced the deepest feelings of aliveness and flow.

The more you live in line with your purpose and values the more you are applying your best qualities in the ways you most enjoy to achieve whatever matters most to you, and generating the deepest feelings of aliveness and flow. This is what you are here to do.

Your purpose and values show you what fulfilment and success look like for you. They show you what self-actualisation looks like to you: becoming most fully who you truly are, who you are meant to be.

You can’t always control what happens around you. But once you know your purpose and values, you can always control the direction that you face in and how hard you try to walk.
