Discovering Your Life Purpose by Todd Alan


What’s a good way to discover your purpose as a Millennial?

Start by visualizing. Determine what you want to create five years from now. Write a detailed scenario of your life five years from today. Write down your vision in the first person, which means using “I statements.”

Stephen Covey, author of “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” said, “Start with the end in mind.” Write as if you’re the leading actor in the play which is your life. Do it in full sensory detail and describe:

  • What do you see?
  • What do you feel?
  • What do you smell?
  • What do you taste?
  • What do you hear?

Create your vision and give it serious thought. Napoleon Hill, the author of the classic book “Think and Grow Rich” calls the Vision Statement “A Statement of Desire.”

Once you’re happy with your Vision Statement read through it daily with energy and enthusiasm. As you put energy and momentum into it, you bring it closer to you.

Vision boards can be a handy tool. Honing in on what your life looks like is helpful. Create a collage using pictures from magazines or print stock photos from online. Or create a screen shot and use your vision board as a screen saver. Others enjoy doing it offline with scissors and glue. Use words and phrases on your vision board, too. Include as much detail as you can, but don’t obsess over it. Create a clear picture and release it like sending a prayer up to Spirit to work on it and manifest it. It’s powerful stuff.
