Many people come online and are not sure what their purpose is. We have so much experience as we age and with all the different types of areas that we work in the skill sure add up. I have been searching for some time to find which talent is my best skill to help others online. I came across the this sweet and well-meaning TED Talk of the Week which deduces how to find your life purpose by asking five simple questions: Adam Leipzig
1. Who are you?
2. What do you love to do?
3. Who do you do it for?
4. What do those people want or need?
5. How do they change as a result of what you give them? http://www.goodnet.org/articles/how-to-find-your-passion-in-life-quiz
I finally decided that I don’t have to have just one skill, because I have several skills.
So I am a Holistic Life Coach and I love to help people with balancing their lives.
I am also a Master Practitioner in NLP which is an amazing tool to help change your mindset, to help you get rid of limiting beliefs.
So as you see its difficult to define a particular area to work in especially when you have been in several areas. I remember back when I had a beauty salon with very loyal staff and loved helping mostly women feel good about themselves. I also worked in the automotive repair business for some 20 odd years and dealt with many different businesses and learned to negotiate terms and conditions for the successful running of the business. Then I also worked for several years in a Pharmacy and learned how to operate all the different areas in a pharmacy, which included the dispensary dispensing prescriptions and then became the buyer for the pharmacy.
So, in the end, I just decided that I am great at finding solutions for people. I might not know exactly all the details but I know where to go to get the solutions.
So you can watch the article with Adam Leipzig above and it might help you with finding what you are good at. In the end, you must just be who you are, amazing and fantastic and here for a purpose.
