Discovering Life Purpose In 60 Minutes or Less


I did an exercise this week for a class I’m taking.  It entailed writing down all of my natural skills, learned skills, things I’ve overcome, and all of my experiences.  When I was finished the paper in front of me looked like it had been spinning while I was writing.  I could hardly read the hodge-podge of words that I precariously penned.  Because the events of my life weren’t spilling out in order, I found the chaos mimicked my sporadic memories.  I do have a point in telling you about my sloppy assignment.

As I stared at the red chicken scratch, I suddenly realized that our lives produce millions of thoughts, events, experiences, skills, and traumas that stay dormant in our minds or forgotten altogether.  We can even dismiss these pieces of our lives as insignificant when truthfully even the little things are important.  The question posted in my mind:  Could this mixed up thought pattern be the reason why people have trouble discovering their purpose?  I heard an emphatic YES!

After organizing what I’d written into the categories, I was amazed at the clarity that came to me.  Though I’ve known the basic outline of my life-calling, the specifics and transparency of it had not been revealed until that moment.  The next step of the exercise was the magic wand that brought it all together.  I was asked to finish this sentence:

To me the perfect world looks like…

I finished it with a description of a butterfly flying freely. She is exactly what she’s supposed to be, nothing more and nothing less. Knowing this makes her live it every moment of her life.

Additionally, I saw a cascading waterfall that nourishes everything around it with a powerful flow of energy and life.

My mentor/coach said to me, “Kellie, that is your purpose.” I knew she was right; it melted into my spirit like sweet, undefiled honey.  I was overcome with joy and gratitude.

I am here to help others find their purpose and ability to be themselves by encouraging and refreshing them.  Of course, there are many hows, whys and whens that go with that synopsis, but even just the simple statement is profound to me.

The whole exercise is amazing and I highly recommend you all try it.  If you want more detailed instructions, please shoot me an email on the contact page or leave your question in the comments.  Have a great weekend!  Be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
