TMHS 361: 10 Ways To Upgrade Your Emotional Fitness

TMHS 123: How To Discover Your Purpose And LIVE IT!

Today we are dealing with a major deficiency in our culture.

Sure we’re dealing with an epidemic of nutritional deficiencies… but there is an even bigger deficiency I’m talking about.

It’s a deficiency in knowing our purpose.

Statistically, people who know who they are and live with a sense of purpose outlive everyone else in the population.

Not only that, they experience far fewer chronic illnesses, far less memory loss, and more happiness in life overall.

It kind of makes sense when you think about it. Your mind and body really work on a “use it or lose it basis”. And if you are not inspired to use your body and mental faculties each day, why on earth would they be compelled to stick around?

Your purpose is literally tied to your lifeline. And today is the day to get fully connected with who you are, why you’re here, and what you’re all about.

Today’s show is loaded with insights to help you reveal what Paulo Coelho would call your own “personal legend”.

There’s actually a formula for uncovering your life’s purpose. It’s incredibly simple, but it’s only applicable if you’re ready for it.

So, if you’re ready, click play, listen with your heart, and take action on the exercises. Let’s go!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why you actually get to choose what your brain is made of.
  • How a sense of purpose impacts aging and development.
  • How purpose means different things to different people.
  • Why having lots of choices can become debilitating.
  • What the formula for finding your purpose is.
  • Why failure can be a huge launching pad to uncovering your purpose.
  • What important questions to ask yourself in order to flesh out your purpose.
  • How passion really ties into finding your purpose (and it’s not what you think!)
  • Why making a decision to live your purpose is often the hardest thing to do.
  • What the word decision really means and how to build your decision-making muscles.
  • Important caveats about living your purpose that involves other people (you won’t be happy without this!)
  • Why it’s CRITICAL to understand your own personal nature.

  1. Hi Shawn and Jade,

    I have slowly been working my way through all of your shows. Today I listened to this one and as always it blew me away. I have read books on finding your purpose but none resonated with me as much as how you explained everything. I love how simple your words are and how I feel like they can be lived and attained. I have a similar story to you in that I battled unexplained health issues for years (started with degenerative disc disease) finally being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Iritis. I have always been interested in health and fitness but after my diagnosis I was determined to avoid conventional medicine as much as possible. A little over two years ago I joined Instagram and immediately realized the power of connection and healing through social media. It sounds crazy but there is a huge autoimmune disease community and I truly feel we are all there for each other. I have found great strength in connection. I made it my goal to start a blog so that I could share my story and inform those suffering from an autoimmune condition that there are other options. I have connected with more people than I can count and even though it can be difficult to juggle a full time job, a blog, raising a 3 year old son, being there for my husband and friends nothing feels better then knowing I am making a difference. I would love to devote more to my blog and what I am doing. I keep freezing up whenever I want to give more. I don’t know why I keep holding back. Thank you for the inspiration today! I plan to do something with it. And, by the way. I grew up in St. Louis! It’s an amazing city who is lucky to have both of you doing the work you are doing.

    Sincerely,
    Katie

  3. Shawn, Thank you so much for sharing this show. I took so many notes and I will put into practice (I started typing hope – but realized there’s wiggle room in the word hope – I decided there is not other option). I’m 33 years old and since the beginning of this year I’ve been struggling with the idea of what is my passion as I trek to my job everyday. This show has allowed me to clear my thoughts and eyes and find that vision.

    Thank you to you and Jade for another awesome show. Well done guys.

    Thank you again,
    Liz

  4. I love your show! I just recently started listening to it. Before I started listening to it, a few weeks ago I discovered my purpose and just so passionate and excited to share it with the world. I am already passionate and excited about the impact I am having on others, but your show really helps me to keep having high energy and learn new content with health and wellness as well.
    I believe everyone has a definite purpose to their life. Mine is to help others discover their true self through moving through there fears with confidence and passion, and stepping to their greatness unapologetically. You must first become the person you are meant to be in order to do the things you want to do in your life, in order to have the things that are your heart’s desire.

    BE
    DO
    HAVE

  5. Hi Shawn, I listen to you all the time and this episode was just as amazing as the others. I feel my purpose in life is very closely related to yours. I want to help individuals that have been diagnosis with illnesses that are said to be incurable.

    I was diagnosed with Lupus back in 2003. I struggle all though high school and college with my health and trying to live a regular life. I was always in and out of hospitals. At one point I was taking 20 pills a day. I always felt horrible because the medications only numbed me or made me sicker.

    While in college I discovered plant-based eating. I was willing to try anything because I was tired of the doctors not even knowing what was wrong with me. So I started off with a vegetarian diet.

    It’s been 2 years since I’ve been vegan and as of Jan 2015 I’m completely off all medication. I now want to share my story with others like myself. Teaching the benefits of a natural lifestyle.

    Thank you for sharing
