Finding one’s life purpose can be an elusive yet fulfilling journey. As a certified life purpose coach, I help guide clients on their personal path to discover their unique reason for being. Through thoughtful questioning, reflective exercises, and goal-oriented action plans, my life purpose coaching serves as a compass for clarifying direction and making meaningful impact.

Also bear in mind that it’s never too late to seek and find your potential and life purpose.

What is Life Purpose Coaching?

Life purpose coaching focuses on discovering one’s deeper calling in order to live an inspired, intentional life aligned with personal values and dreams. As a life purpose coach, I partner with clients through a process of self-inquiry, self-discovery, and self-empowerment around their life purpose.

Unlike career coaching that concentrates on professional goals, life purpose coaching takes a more holistic approach – exploring all areas of life to uncover what gives it meaning. It goes beyond surface desires and material ambitions. The aim is to connect with the authentic self and what fuels our soul.

Sessions utilize powerful techniques like visualization, journaling prompts, value identification exercises and more. The personalized coaching process examines aspects like core desires, innate talents, passions and curiosity. It gets to the heart of what makes you come alive.

What are Some Techniques Used for Life Purpose Coaching?

As your personal life purpose coach, I thoughtfully tailor sessions to your specific needs and customize actionable steps over time. While each coaching engagement is unique, I leverage research-backed frameworks to facilitate discovery. Here is an overview of some techniques commonly used:

Values Elicitation Exercises
Getting crystal clear on your core values provides an essential filtering mechanism for life decisions and delivers clarity. As legendary author Jim Rohn says, “Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” Highly-tailored values elicitation methods uncover what really matters so you can design life accordingly.

Reflective Journaling
Journaling increases self-awareness critical to unlocking your purpose. Thought-provoking prompts between sessions inspire insights through stream of consciousness writing. Reviewing entries also fosters noticing emerging patterns to crystallize takeaways. This lightweight habit supports self-discovery.

Appreciative Inquiry
This powerful coaching psychology exercise involves intense visualizing and describing peak life experiences where you felt vibrantly alive. Determining exactly what factors filled you with vitality in those scenarios reveals intrinsic motivators to integrate for daily rejuvenation. Appreciative inquiry uncovers your unique aliveness recipe.

Vision Board Creation
Visually mapping desires across life domains synthesizes insights gained to create an energizing snapshot of your ideal future living on purpose. This creative process clarifies overarching life vision while also identified granular action steps to manifest that reality. Vision boards remind of progress and possibilities.

Exploring your skills & strengths (Past, Present & Future)

Taking stock of your innate skills and developed strengths across life stages offers powerful insights into your unique talents and purposeful direction. Reflecting on childhood activities that sparked vitality, assessing present capabilities doubling down energy flows, and envisioning future goals requiring focused skill-building spotlights natural abilities primed for growth. 

Noticing throughlines across the timeline synthesizes learnings into a skills/strengths sweet spot signaling pathways for further self-actualization. Mining the past, taking stock today, and mapping the horizon provides clues for activating latent superpowers already buried within.

Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

We all carry limiting beliefs which can hem us in, dampen our vibrancy and truncate our potential. Common restrictive thoughts sound like “I’m not creative enough to start a business doing what I love” or “It’s too late to redirect my career in alignment with my purpose.” Thankfully, our minds build neural pathways strengthening whatever we focus on. 

By intentionally shifting attention to empowering perspectives through practices like affirmations, visualization, and transforming negative self-talk, we rewire self-imposed mental barriers opening doors once sealed shut. Leaning into supportive community and upgrading your inner circle also works wonders. With consistent effort, ingrained limitations once seeming immutable shift into faded phantoms of the past. You absolutely have it within you to define your outer world by your inner truth, not the other way around. The possibility to live your purpose awaits.
