5-Step Guide to Your Life Purpose


It takes time to really go within yourself to figure out your life purpose. This 5-step guide can help you start to figure out what that may look like for you. Make sure that you set aside enough time to be true to yourself, and think with an open mind, as you evolve and go through this guide. Most of all, have fun as you rediscover yourself.

Step 1: Who are you and what drives you?

This is where you get to peel away all the layers, or walls, that we’ve all put up in our lives to really ask yourself “who am I?”. How would you describe yourself? What is it that motivates and inspires you to do a good job?


Step 2: What is your passion(s) or dream(s)?

What do you love doing in your spare time? Do you have a hobby that you’d like to do more? If you could live your ideal life, what would it look like? Are your childhood dreams a reality in your life today?

Step 4: Pick a path that reflects who you are.

Look at the things you wrote down above describing your passions and who you are. Pick career option(s) from your zodiac sign that connects to your soul. If you picked more than one selection, prioritize them based on your interests. A more detailed, complete breakdown of your life purpose can be done by interpreting the stars, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets.

Step 5: Develop a plan of action (research, training, job search, networking).

Research the labour market and if training is needed, find the best course for you, find the resources to pay for it, and enroll in the training. Set up informational interviews to get more information about the course. Make sure you update your resume, establish a job search plan, find the hidden job market, and network with others.

Life Purpose Career Coaching investigates your soul’s mission and natural abilities and gifts, then moves on to your career or job, work environment, money, and life purpose aspirations. Traditional career coaching typically focuses on your job-related ambitions, skills, professional aspirations, and future. I merge these strategies with astrology, including natal birth charts, and spirituality to help you connect to your life purpose. Customized activities and tools are used to guide you along your journey.
