Step three - Purpose

Living Purposefully and Being Inspired

Being purposeful is the essence of prosperity. It serves in life to provide direction and stability, much like a rudder stabilizing a vessel. Purpose is the source of the inspiration; it is what fuels our vision. Vision stipulates the framework for our goals, which are actualized moment by moment. This step is about harnessing the energy that is recovered when we let go of remorse and regret by forgiving ourselves and being responsible for our life. Forgiveness affords us the ability to direct and invest our energy intentionally. Step 3 is about consciously declaring our intentions and being fully aware of the consequences initiated by our actions. Step 3 is about asserting our power, free will, and being a deliberate creator.

Purpose is the foundation of goals. Once we are aware and have made a choice to respond, we will want to express our vision and establish our goals. First, we become aware of being in the present; then we choose the direction we want to go next. Purpose is a route comprised of goals. It is what we want to achieve and our strategy for achieving it. The language of purpose differs according to each individual, but purpose, as the foundation for prosperity, is always love. Goals based on purpose are experienced and actualized in the present moment. Without this foundation, we slip back into an endless cycle of scarcity and absence.
