Creating Your True Purpose Statement



Let’s do some soul searching and craft a statement that describes your True Purpose. You are going to incorporate the themes in your life that you found. You want your True

Purpose Statement to be essentially one sentence in length.

As you dig deep, search to put words to your True Purpose. You want to define the meaning of your True Purpose and put it into a sentence or statement about your life path. It is okay if you end up changing the final wording; it is the process of discovering yourself that’s important. This sentence will help you to better understand the meaning of your True Purpose or mission. The words will serve to remind you of this Purpose.

As you formulate your sentence, remember that your True Purpose is also going to be a means through which you will serve. This service to others may be friends and family, children, or the masses. Perhaps it will be to help animals, the environment, or Mother Earth. Our True Purpose brings us great pleasure and satisfaction, but it also serves others. Make sure that when you formulate your statement, it expresses a way in which you serve.

As well as serving others, you are also serving and nurturing a need in yourself. Your True Purpose is going to be something that you enjoy and love doing. Remember, your Purpose is never going to be “to experience being miserable” or “to be poor” or “be unwanted.” It’ll be nothing of the kind, so don’t give in to self-pity. Your Purpose could be to get through a challenge and achieve something, but it is never just to be in pain or poverty. Remember, it is for the highest good for yourself and others.

Play around with statements, then “try them on.” Ask yourself how you feel about that Purpose. If it is your True Purpose, it will “feel” right.

True Purpose Statement Examples

The following are examples of True Purpose Statements. However, each of us is a complex human being with a very individual True Purpose, so each of us will have our own unique statement. I’ve provided these to help you as you to continue fine-tune your statement. Some of these examples may resonate with you (either the whole sentence or just part of it). If you find a sentence or a part of a sentence that you think fits, meditate on it. Sit quietly with the words and repeat them in your mind. Do they resonate with your soul? Mark any that resonate.
