What's Your Single Motivating Purpose?


What's your single motivating purpose?

I'm not asking what you do for a living or even what you do in life. But what drives you to do the things you do? Whatever it is, it often makes you giddy; or leaves you with a sense that you accomplished what you're here on earth to do.

I've been listening to a podcast by Internet Business Mastery describing how to uncover your single motivating purpose. It challenged me to think through what motivates me.

As I tried to consider what it might be, I thought about things that light me up. I absolutely love to learn. I eternally have a new book, podcast, article or post I'm gleaning from and I love sharing that information with others when it applies to their life. It's not just sharing information (although that's really fun for me) but when it applies to a problematic situation and helps someone is when it feels most aligned.

After spending a weekend obsessing thinking about what my single motivating purpose might be, I finally concluded it was this:

I love to teach and inspire people to grow and move forward in their lives (spiritually, creatively and practically).

It's not that I think I'm an expert or that I know everything, but sharing and connecting what I've learned to help people overcome problems is when I feel most alive. When the information I have, can be used to further someone in their life, whether through growth or inspiration, or whatever; I feel as though I've done what I'm here to do.

What lights you up and motivates you? Have you ever thought about your single motivating purpose? 

If not, I'd highly recommend listening to this podcast. Understanding your single motivating purpose helps in daily life because you can see what things you may be doing that do not pursue your purpose. It's helped me see things I needed to delegate to others whose purpose falls more in line with those activities.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!
