Follow Your Bliss, Find Your Purpose



Follow Your Bliss, Find Your Purpose How can you live with more joy, focus, well-being, and meaning? Find your purpose! What are you uniquely qualified to contribute to the world? This episode of the 21 Day Happiness Challenge will help you find out, as well as address why purpose matters for health, happiness, and longevity.



Key Takeaways

  • Research demonstrates a clear connection between purpose and meaning, and living a happier, healthier, and longer life.

  • Finding your purpose ultimately allows you to ask: who are you here to be?

  • Asking a series of powerful questions can help lead you to your purpose: 1. What do you love? 2. What are you good at? 3. What does the world need from you? 4. What can you get paid for? When you analyze the overlap of your answers to these questions, you can begin to find your purpose.


Today’s Challenge Create a purpose Venn diagram


Grab a blank sheet of paper, and draw four large circles that overlap in the center. Using the questions listed above, place one question in each of the circles. Begin to answer each using as many words in as much detail as possible to fill in the center with the overlap. This is your ikigai, your purpose!
