Katrina Tarrant: The power of purpose

Life is the grandest adventure you will ever get to go on, filled with twists, turns, and unexpected challenges.

But what if I told you that you hold the key to changing the rules of your reality?

It’s all about having a purpose, that magical guiding star that gives your life meaning, direction, and a splash of excitement.

As Lalah Delia wisely put it, “She remembered who she was and the game changed”.

So, let’s dive into the exhilarating world of purpose and how it can turn your life into a thrilling escapade!

Life is a puzzle

Imagine your life as a puzzle, with each piece representing a unique experience, skill, and passion.

Now, think about purpose as the picture on the puzzle box – the big picture that helps you fit all those pieces together.

It’s not about just going through the motions; it’s about discovering what truly resonates with your soul.

That’s where the fun begins!

Life purpose is your treasure map

Lalah Delia defines ‘life purpose’ as the core reason behind everything significant you do.

It’s like a treasure map leading you to your own hidden gems of passion and competence.

Life purpose isn’t about getting caught up in the nitty-gritty details like specific goals.

Instead, it’s your compass, your guiding umbrella that covers all the specifics.

It’s the “why” that makes even the most mundane of tasks feel like exciting quests.

It’s not etched in stone

And guess what? Your ‘life purpose’ isn’t etched in stone.

It’s a living, breathing concept that can change as you grow and evolve.

It’s like having a wardrobe of purpose – you can pick and choose what feels right for each stage of your life journey.

Just like a game character can level up with new abilities, your life purpose can level up too!

The game of life

Now, let’s circle back to that quote, “She remembered who she was and the game changed.”

Picture this: you’re playing the game of life, navigating through challenges and victories.

But somewhere along the way, you pause and take a deep look within yourself.

You remember your passions, your dreams, your essence.

And suddenly, the game transforms.

You start making choices that align with who you are at your core.

You pursue adventures that light up your soul.

You build relationships that resonate with your true self.

You take risks because you’re fuelled by purpose.

Don’t be afraid to change the rules

It’s like finding the secret level in a video game – except this is real life, and the level is the incredible journey you embark on when you remember who you are.

I encourage you to welcome your ‘life purpose’ with open arms!

Dance to the rhythm of your passions, sing along with the melody of your skills and paint your life with the colours of your dreams.

Don’t be afraid to change the game, rewrite the rules, and infuse every moment with the joy of living authentically.

Remember who you are and the game changes.
