Identifying Life Purpose ~ Coffee Break

Making Life Decisions

Who decides when you get to focus on your goals? Or when you get to start something new? If you are not consciously making your own life decisions, then who is?

Ultimately, it’s your life. You don’t need to wait for the perfect day—or permission—to work towards your vision.

In business, when you need something approved or want to get a contract, it’s important to talk to the decision maker.

In your life, you are the decision maker.

Identifying Life Goals

Once you make the decision that you are the decision maker in your life, you can work on honing your life goals. Many people struggle identifying life goals because… well, when do we ever learn this growing up?  Goals are not a topic typically covered in school.

One great way to identify your life goals is to just start trying new things with a curious open mind. As we say often: “It is in the journey that the way becomes more clear.”

Many of the artists and creators’ we’ve interviewed have mentioned they just started experimenting… daily.

Topics Discussed:

  • Non-conforming
  • New years goals
  • Societies shoulds & shouldn’t’s
  • Who makes your life decisions?
  • Honing in on your life purpose
  • Building skill sets
  • Make a commitment to you

“It is in the life experiences where we discover what ignites us.”

“Your dreams start when you decide.”

About the author, Devani

Hey! I’m Devani, a multi-passionate creator who enjoys honing the craft of writing (mostly;)), photography, cooking, podcasting, learning about business, and growing brands. I co-host the iCreateDaily Podcast with LeAura Alderson (my mom), and co-own the iCreateDaily brand. I hope through the content and products we produce, you will be inspired to start, sustain, and succeed in your goals.

My non-business and artistic hobbies include: enjoying a good movie, discovering obscure but epic music, obsessing over The Beatles, and developing fictional stories in my head. My Maltese dog, Caspian, provides an insane amount of creative inspiration by just being his adorable self. #HeWokeUpLikeThat. 😉
