Opening the vault to answer some Frequently Asked questions about purpose, coaching and the membership program:
What makes purpose coaching different from career coaching?Career coaching helps you to uncover your interests and next job. Purpose coaching takes you to a much deeper level where we dig into the archives and find what has lit you up in the past, who and what has influenced you and how to connect all those dots to today. We even get into your current environment and how you’ve operated so that we can release things that don’t serve you and learn to operate at your peak potential. Plus you’ll learn tools to help you evolve to even higher versions of you.
What is purpose?
Purpose is more powerful than passion alone. It’s the broader meaning of your life’s journey rather than a focus on narrow interests. I call it the theme in your life or the thread that has been woven into your life since you were a kid leading you toward specific actions, connections with people and careers. Ultimately its what invokes meaning and connection in your life. Career/jobs are a bi-product of your purpose not your actual purpose.
How will a group environment help me?In general, being connected week to week with like-minded people helps keep you motivated and focused.
However, it’s all about you and your learning style. Some people work better when they get focused attention and it helps them get more done. Others like group environments where its collaborative, and they can hear other people’s questions and stories. In this membership you will watch the individual classes on your own but then ask questions and get answers in a group environment. I will also be looking at the assignments personally to bring up points that will be useful for all to hear. You can feel free to ask questions in the Q&A sessions about them.
Is it too late for me to find my purpose at my age X?
If you feel too old, know it’s never too late because as long as you have breath in your lungs you can grow the fire in your spirit. It may even be easier to connect those dots and find the messages leading to your purpose since you have so much to digest and sift through in your life.
If you feel you’re too young, know that it’s not too early to start learning what makes you tick and getting your hands dirty trying new things. Learning yourself, your interests, and where you might want to take it is a big part of find your purpose. The answers will come as you learn how to developer your internal GPS.
Is this a religious based coaching?
Not at all. While there are purpose coaches that are religious in their methodology, this is a non-denomination coaching method, although I feel that connecting to the core of you can be a spiritual experience. That aspect is up to you.
What does being purpose-driven mean?The how and what you contribute meaningfully in this inspired life is secondary to the why. This is where people get stuck because they tend to be more centered around the individual contribution – aka mission. The mission is focused on a specific goal like the launch of a product or a program. It has a beginning and an end. Being purpose-driven is being focused on the deeper meaning, the why, and using missions to carry it out. That’s a BIG distinction.
What if you feel like you have no purpose or drive?Often people who ask have experienced things that make them forget their true power and this course will help you get that back. In fact the first module is about releasing your history and understanding the stories you tell yourself that might be limiting you from your true potential and purpose
