Why don’t I have clarity of Mission/Purpose in life? Fear

Are you afraid to define your mission/purpose in life?   Some people really are.  They are afraid it will:

  • Be too much work.  The false belief behind this is, “It’s easier just to wander in life.”
  • Be limiting.  The false belief behind this is “no definition = freedom.”
  • Reveal something they missed.    The false belief behind this is “Ignorance is bliss.”
  • Be too late to do anything about it.  The false belief behind this is “It’s too late.”
  • Be too much and they will face the pain of failure or feel they have already failed at it.  The false belief behind this is that “Achieving little is better than the failure in attempting something big.”

Why don’t I have clarity of Mission/Purpose in life? The Choices

In the quiet moments of life, whether you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or even older, you may ask yourself,

“Why don’t I have clarity of mission/purpose in my life?”

“Why don’t I have the direction I want and need?” 

"What have I missed?”

I know people who wait around for their mission/purpose or even their next step to be written in the sky or on the sidewalk.  You can’t wait around for clarity and direction to come that way.  If you are from the Christian tradition, much of your purpose is already made evident.

Why don’t I have clarity of Mission/Purpose in life? The Developmental “Brew”

“I’m not sure how I got to be my age and don’t know this.” 

I hear some form of this statement after a person has completed the work we do together on developing a written personal mission statement.  You may be asking it, too, and it may help you to understand some of the "whys?"

The truth is that most people in their 40’s are still poking around in a fog for this foundation and sense of direction.  They hope their real mission finds them at some point.  They don’t realize that they must identify it.
