Don't make this mistake
March 03, 2019
I have some thought provoking questions for you today.

But before we get to those I just want to remind you that the updated LIVE version of my Life Purpose Discovery Coaching Program starts tomorrow...

There are a few places left, is one of them yours?

I'm offering this destiny coaching for a ridiculously low price because I want to make it easy for you to say yes so that you can get clear about your purpose & identify your God-given call so you can start living life ON PURPOSE and do what you were put on earth to do!

Today's coaching moment

Make sure you're not making this mistake

God designed each one of us individually, we're not just carbon copies.

God took great care when He created us, He had great intention when He made us, and significant purpose and destiny in mind for each one of us. No exceptions.

How would your life be different if you
really believed that and lived as though it were true?

The sad thing is, that although we start out as originals, many of us become copies along the way.

Imagine grabbing the wrong suitcase at the airport only to find that you had to live out of it and use the clothes inside!

You wouldn't do it would you? You wouldn't try to live out of a strange person's suitcase; you'd go and buy something that fitted you, something that suited you.

Yet even though it can be awkward and uncomfortable, people unknowingly do this; they uncomfortably wear clothes intended for somebody else!

That's what happens when somebody tries to give you a job, or a ministry, or a purpose, that doesn't fit well with who you are and who God designed you to be.

The odds are, at some point, someone has tried to get you to live out a purpose that wasn't meant for you, and that you took it on board, even though God created you to be unique and special, and it wasn't your purpose, even though He never intended it for you.

Don't let yourself get caught up in
fulfilling somebody else's purpose.

God doesn't want you to live out somebody else's purpose; He gave you your own unique purpose. So take time to find out what God really wants you to wear and wear it well!

You can do something that no one else can do in the way that you do it... in a way that is totally unique to you.

Someone might have a similar personality or similar gifts, but they won't express them in the same way as you.

EVERYBODY possesses a unique combination of gifts and talents, and everyone is presented with unique opportunities and obstacles.

There may be people with similar personality traits who have similar gifts to you, but they won't express them in the same way. They won't think the same way you do. They won't have your unique combination of experiences and intelligence.

If you look back in history, or if you look forward into the future, you won't find your replica, you're the only one, you really are unique.

Like Esther, you're here for such a time as this.

When you really think about that and begin to understand the implications, you'll begin to see that you have a mission here on earth, and you have a calling to fulfil.

if you don't have a sense of purpose you're going to miss clues about your mission, and you're likely to drift through life feeling vaguely dissatisfied even if most aspects of your life are going well.

If you don't have a sense of your destination, if you don't know where you're going, then when you arrive you might not know that you've arrived.

Everyone has a place in this world
where they can be themselves and flourish!

Ask God to show you what He had in mind when He created you.

He had good works in mind for you before you were born, you were created as a solution to a problem that He knew was going to exist.

That's worth pondering...

You were created to be part of the solution
to a problem that God knew was going to exist.

God knew you were going to live in this generation, in this time in history, in the place you were born, to your particular parents, in your particular circumstances.

b>You're part of a much bigger puzzle than you recognize,
and you're an important part of it.

There are particular people that you're destined to influence and impact.

"We are God's workmanship created in Christ to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10

Something to think about...

  • What did God put you on earth to do?
  • What are you actively doing to make sure you put things in place to enable you to do it well?

God has prepared important assignments for you. That's mind blowing isn't it?

Ask Him to show you what they are and how to get ready.

If you'd like some help with identifying what you're gifted and called do, this free coaching is especially designed to help you to get a better idea of your life purpose and start designing your life in a way that enables you to fulfil God's calling on your life.
