So you finally discovered what your purpose is and you are ecstatic, excited and elated! You’re ready to jumpstart things and finally begin walking in your purpose.
That’s nice. Why?
Yes, I asked why.
Why are you ready to fulfill your purpose?
Is it because it will raise your net worth? Or is it because you’ll get more likes and followers on social media?
Will you become famous once you fulfill it? Is that why you’re ready to fulfill your purpose?
I ask these questions because as I’ve said before, the “why” behind the “what” matters.
Once I discovered what my purpose was, it was like everything clicked and came in to focus. I started getting, what I like to call, God Ideas and every so often would add them to my notes on my iPhone.
I knew that as a part of my purpose I’d be inspiring and encouraging others through teaching others how to discover their purpose. I enjoy helping others tap into their potentiality. I enjoy being creative and using social media. I was soooo ready!
And if I can modestly say, I have a great looking face (so humble right?) so I was fully ready for my photoshoot because since I was called to speak to people, I had to make sure I looked put-together (whatever that even means).
In the midst of my God Ideas, planning my photoshoot, updating my social media handles and writing, I received one of those nails on the chalkboard, record scratching, “world stop” moments from God.
He asked me, “What are your motives?”
I had to check my motives. There was nothing wrong with planning a photoshoot or updating my social media, but I had to answer and make sure my “why” was pure.
What’s that intrinsic thing that’s pushing you to walk in your purpose?
Why do you want to become a brand?
Why do you go live on social media?
Why do you post that post?
Check your motives.
