If you are a heart-centered entrepreneur who wants her (or his) business to thrive and be fulfilling, you need to be absolutely clear on your purpose. 

(You can read why your purpose is an essential part of a profitable business in this article).

The first question everyone asks me after they realize how important it is to know their purpose, is:

But HOW do I find my purpose?

Often they hope I have a magic recipe or trick that reveals their life purpose to them in minutes.

Of course, it doesn’t work that way 😉

Sure, there are steps to follow, questions that help you clarify your purpose, and methods and techniques that will help you find it. 

But all effective methods basically come down to the same thing.

They all facilitate the one thing I will reveal to you in just a few sentences.

But first I invite you to take a moment to let this sink in:

Your purpose is part of who YOU REALLY ARE. 

You are born with your purpose. It is already within you. You cannot lose it, because it is already yours. You cannot NOT have it, because you were born with it.
You can merely lose sight of it.

So how DO you find your life purpose? What is that ONE thing you have to do to find it?

The one and only thing you have to do to find your life purpose, or soul purpose, or divine purpose (use whatever phrase you like best) is:

To let go of everything that is NOT REALLY YOU.

Let go of dreams that are not yours.

Let go of all expectations others have of you.

Let go of all behaviors, thoughts, activities and beliefs that have nothing to do with who you truly are.

Stop doing things you are not passionate about.

Focus on everything you feel connected to, even if you don’t understand what it is that attracts you to it.

Say YES to everything that deeply resonates with you, and say NO to everything that doesn’t.

The following questions will help you determine what to say YES, and what to say NO to:

This week’s Transformational Action

When do you feel completely alive, fulfilled and in the flow?
What are you doing when you feel this way?

Say YES to these activities more often, and find ways to integrate them more into your business. 
These are the activities that move you closer to your purpose.

What totally drains your energy, and feels like it has nothing to do with who you are and why you are here?

Say NO to this wholeheartedly.
This is most likely one of the things that keep you away from finding or fulfilling your purpose.
