Have You Lost Your Purpose?

“…a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn’t able to do what it was meant to do… Maybe it’s the same with people. If you lose your purpose… it’s like you’re broken.” -From the movie Hugo

Maybe you know what your purpose is, but aren’t living it.

The biggest job and career crisis in our country isn’t unemployment or lack of jobs.  The biggest crisis is people doing the wrong jobs and pursuing careers that don’t align with what they were meant to do.

The biggest job and career crisis in our country isn’t unemployment or lack of jobs.  The biggest crisis is people pursuing careers that don’t align with what they were meant to do.

In many cases, people have run from their true purpose.  Sadly, no…tragically, people run from their true vocation out of fear and end up leading restless lives because they are not satisfying this yearning from deep within their soul – to do the work and make the things for which they were created.

Many people have been deceived.  They have chased a mirage of happiness and have become shadows of their true magnificence.

How about you?  Are you restless?  Do you often find that you hear that inner voice, calling you to change direction?  Do you shut it down with “reason,” saying to yourself “That would be foolish.  What would people think?  I have responsibilities.  I won’t be able to support my lifestyle.  I am too old to begin again?”

Those questions are the product of limiting beliefs and scarcity thinking.  What if you could answer your true calling and address your fears – would you be willing to live your true calling?  If so, what would your calling look like?

If you are restless and sad, it may very well be that you have become a broken “machine” which has lost its purpose.
