Today we are going to talk about three ways to find your path.
Our path is what we want to do with our lives or the direction we want to see our lives go in. Our path, goals and, purpose can be so intertwined that you lose the excitement
about your path. What I’m going to talk to you about today is just three easy ways to consider finding your path and moving towards it.
The first thing is to be honest about what drives you. When I say what drives you, I mean What are your values? What’s your list of things that are your foundation about what you believe? What are you willing to do? What are you not willing to do? I’m going to use the example of your faith. For me I know that as a Christian I will do certain things and there are certain things that I will not do. That really drives my passion each day to be able to help serve women and to be able to help women of color identify their best self and be it. That’s just one thing that I do, but that’s a part of my values, so it drives me each day to be a reflection of that faith and what I believe in.
The second thing you would do is research what you believe. You know what you believe, but a lot of times people are still working off of the information they’ve gotten from TV, their families, and their own environments that might be influencing you. Learn to research on your own to determine what your beliefs are and learn that what is driving you actually is what you believe. If you believe in family, if you believe in love, if you believe in the acceptance of all, that becomes part of your thing that drives you. If you believe everyone should live a perfect life, research belief systems around that. Being able to identify our beliefs really helps you define your path.
Last, but not least is once you know what drives you, once you research what drives
you, then you have to do it. A while back I talked about “just do it” and the importance of doing what you set out for yourself to achieve. The only way that things will change in life, the only
way that you will get the life you want is to take action towards it so just do it!
To summarize, number one is finding your path. Number two is research what drives you. Number three is just do what drives you. That is just a little bit of the secret to finding your path.
