A common complaint that I hear in my coaching practice, is a lack of fulfillment.
A key solution strategy is to help discover a purpose that will give your life meaning.
Let me give you an example from my volunteering experiences in hospices and nursing homes.
The purpose-filled resident in a nursing home or other similar institutional setting, may decide on a daily basis, to give the gifts of listening and companionship by initiating conversations with other residents, thereby providing encouragement and hope to others.
Serving others in this way empowers people who are ill and gives them a purpose to get up in the morning.
As their daily lives take on a new meaning, “the lights come back on in their eyes”.
It’s absolutely exhilarating to watch this happen.
And there you have another reason why my passion in life is to help other people discover their purpose!!
