What Is Your Purpose? Is It Empowering Or Disempowering You?

13 Comments Posted in Personal Development

What is your purpose

What is the purpose behind what you are doing right now?

What is your purpose behind working in your current job? Is it to provide food, pay the bills or are you working towards your goal?

Do you have an empowering or disempowering purpose behind what you are doing?

Example of an empowering purpose – Working because you are passionate about what you are doing.

Having an empowering purpose behind what you do can help you feel great about yourself. You will also enjoy better performance in your work since you are passionate and interested in what you are doing.

Example of disempowering purpose – Working because you want to clear your debts.

Is it even possible to feel inspired and excited about your job if your purpose behind staying in your current job is to pay the monthly payments for your car, bills, mortgages or clear your debt?

If you have a disempowering purpose behind what you are doing right now, most likely you do not enjoy what you are doing. If you don’t enjoy what you are doing, it is much harder to achieve success and get the necessary rewards (money that you can use to pay the bills) that you want.

So summarize, If you hate what you are doing, you are hindering your own success.

If you hate what you are doing now, what can you do something to change it tomorrow? Will you make the effort to change?

    “Is it even possible to feel inspired and excited about your job if your purpose behind staying in your current job is to pay the monthly payments…” Boom! That’s powerful.

    I think it’s okay to have a few disempowering ends, but if (and only if) they’re coupled to empowering purposes. I do love writing but that’s not the only reason I created my blog; I also wanted it to potentially become an income stream. That would kill two birds with one stone, thus enabling the empowering/disempowering symbiosis.

  2. You make such a wonderful point here. When I’m doing things with a disempowering purpose, I feel as if I’m not living. I feel as if I’m just here, breathing, existing, and making it from one day to the next. Over the last few years, it has become so much more important for me to have more than that. Now, I LIVE my life. I follow my passions and work towards my goals. There is something so liberating about following a passionate purpose for your life.

  3. Hi Vincent,

    It took me a long time to realize what you are saying but I couldn’t agree with you more. When you are doing something you enjoy it doesn’t feel like work at all. Yet, if you don’t like what you are doing one hour can feel like an eternity.

    I subscribe to the following rule…

    “If you don’t like something, change it!”

    If I can’t immediately change my situation I try my best to formulate a plan and then act on that plan.

    “disempowering purpose – Working because you want to clear your debts.”
    Agree with you Vincent.
    Lots of people nowadays doing things that keep them survive for another day, instead of fighting for their goals (if they have any).
    This is a wrong mindset that lock them from moving forward.

  5. Hi Vincent,

    This post has really opened my eyes to a better reason and intention I should have in implementing any job. I have experienced difficulties in achieving any of my dreams before due to the disempowering purpose I possessed. Thank you for sharing this wonderful information here.

    Cheers!

  6. A dis-empowering purpose hinders our stay on earth in a form of discontent. It’s best to find what you enjoy doing and do it. You can be the best if you may. But as long a your doing what you enjoy, Hey! who to stop yah.

    Good article that makes me think. I used to love what I do, but then something changed…I got married. After the economic scare and now thinking about kids, I feel much more pressure to provide. I came close to losing everything in the economic crisis, and while things are better, there is still a chance that my company fails. So while before I loved helping startups (my company – http://www.sunshineny.com), now my motive is much more to pay off debts and make sure my soon to be family is financially stable. The funny thing is, I’m incredibly motivated now because the thought of having kids scares the hell out of me.

      Hi Eric,

      Aiming to be financially stable is a good goal. Even though I’m not going to have kids that soon, I can see how much resources it is going to take to send them to school, food etc.

      Keep working hard Erice. 🙂

      Cheers,
      Vincent
