4 Clues to Your Life Purpose

Everyone has a purpose.

When you don’t know what your purpose is, your purpose is to find your purpose.
—Marcelo Cardoso

How do we fully embody our purpose moment-to-moment? How do we make choices that are in integrity with our purpose, no matter what the external circumstances? By engaging in the inquiry into who we really are and what we
have to give.

This infographic, based on the life purpose work of Marcelo Cardoso, offers a starting place.



What's your relationship with your sense of purpose? Where do you shine? Where do you struggle?

    Native cultures share a deep respect, connection and curiosity for the amazing planet that we share. As cultures developed and the pressures of modern society have forced us to focus on the somewhat frenetic pace of modern work and living we seem to have lost time to explore the wild places and experience the amazing varieties of other species that share our planet. We also seem to have lost respect and a sense of stewardship and championship of the environment. My passion and sense of purpose as I become older and finally have more time away from career demands is to try and help rescue these species and the environment from increasing encroachment and destruction while also working on ways to empower and encourage local populations to enter into this commitment.

    Passion: deeply connecting with others and exploring other points of view fully; inspired by true expressions of human love and kindness around me
    Needs: helping others grow and develop through mentoring and encouragement; making individuals recognize that each one is special too
    Talents: leadership and building team dynamics and fostering creative thinking
    Values: love – it is the only thing that endures and that we carry with us to the end of our days; I want to love and be loved and help others love and be loved; part is about being brave enough to be open and vulnerable, helping our persona learn and accept our failures as well as celebrate successes.

  • Molly Sargent says:

    I enjoyed arriving at these answers; the ability to respond to them immediately validated for me the importance of the past several years of studying (with Katie Hendricks), daily meditation, life choices (divorce and down-sizing) to arrive closer to myself than ever before:
    Passion: authentic connection and continuous relevance
    Needs: working with professionals
    Talents: teaching and writing
    Values: consciousness

      Thanks Molly seeing how you differentiated between passion, needs, values and talents helped me in my responses. In answering the questions I was too concrete.
