“Step into your purpose.”
Man that phrase gets used a lot.
Influencers on Instagram love using it.
It’s the buzz word around the world.
I’ve avoided using that phrase because I’ve always felt that it’s “fluffy” with no roots. But I also know that a lot of people resonate with this language. So I want to break that phrase down.
Today we’ll discover what that phrase actually means and what’s holding you back from being able to step into your purpose.

Action Steps to apply to YOUR journey:
Grab a journal and a pen and journal through these questions:
- What is your passion?
- What are your skills?
- What are your values?
- What does the world need?
- What can you be paid for?
Working your way through these questions will help you find purpose in your work.
Practical ways to deal with rejection:

- Be kind to yourself.
- Look inward.
