  • Hello! Hello!

  • So, today I'm going to talk about something that is a pretty

  • topic.

  • And that is

  • talking about your life purpose.

  • This is a huge topic

  • and obviously I can't attack it from every angle.

  • So I'm only going to talk about it from one very specific perspective.

  • And one perspective that is not commonly discussed.

  • Now before we get started, if you're new to my channel

  • then please make sure to click subscribe down below.

  • Include the little bell with that 'cause that way you'll get notifications every time I post a new video.

  • And also, go to LindaRaynier.com

  • and you'll be able to find out more about me there.

  • Now if you're someone who's thinking of making a career change,

  • or if you're thinking of starting a new business

  • or if you're thinking of moving to a different country

  • or doing something new.

  • And you don't really know if that's the right thing for you,

  • then I really want to help you through this.

  • A lot of people don't actually believe that we have a purpose.

  • And that we just have to figure our way

  • and do what we do

  • and that's it. But you know what, I don't believe that.

  • I believe that we do each, every single one of us, we do have a purpose.

  • If it's not called purpose then it's called intention.

  • That intention is carried out through the careers that we pick,

  • the lives that we lead,

  • the lifestyle that we decide to take on.

  • That intention plays throughout our lives.

  • There's a lot of different angles that people talk about when they talk about your purpose,

  • but what doesn't really get talked about

  • is how your pain plays a role in your purpose.

  • The answer to understanding your life purpose is through your pain.

  • And when I say pain, I mean deep-rooted, deep-seated pain.

  • Painful experiences that you've gone through in life

  • that have left a mark on you.

  • Left open wounds.

  • And these wounds are still sitting in your heart.

  • Once we get through that cloud of pain and we're able to allow it to dissipate,

  • we get clearer and clearer on what our purpose is.

  • We get clearer and clearer on what it is that we really want to do with our lives.

  • Pain actually guides you to your purpose.

  • If we really want to live fulfilling and meaningful lives,

  • and we really want to go after the careers that we love,

  • we have to understand ourselves first.

  • Your pain is your biggest teacher in life.

  • For some reason we have this weird idea that we should live life

  • completely challenge-free.

  • That things shouldn't be going wrong.

  • But I'm telling you no, that's not true.

  • So for example,

  • you may have a deep-seated pain relating to your own self-confidence.

  • Maybe you grew up in an environment where you didn't have very supportive parents.

  • Parents who never gave you credit for the good things that you did.

  • Parents who were always very critical and wanted more of you.

  • So you grew up thinking with this mindset that you're never good enough.

  • And now that's resulted in a lack of self-confidence.

  • That is what I call a deep-seated pain.

  • So if you are someone who's led a life of very low self-esteem, low confidence,

  • but you've been able to face that pain,

  • learn from it, acknowledge it,

  • understand where it came from

  • and you've gone to the other side and you've grown from that.

  • Part of what your purpose is

  • is to use that experience,

  • use that new understanding, that growth that you've gone through

  • to help those who are currently going through the exact same thing.

  • Because you, being the one who lacked the self-confidence, had the low self-esteem,

  • is the best person, to be able to understand someone now

  • who maybe is a few steps behind you.

  • Who doesn't see the light just yet.

  • You're the best person to help them and that is part of your purpose.

  • This really applies for people who are entrepreneurs

  • and really want to start their own businesses.

  • I get a lot of people who say, you know, "I want to start my own thing"

  • "but I just don't know what it is!"

  • And all they think about is whether the new thing they're thinking of doing is going to make them money.

  • Instead of looking at it from that perspective,

  • look at it from a more deeper perspective,

  • a more spiritual perspective.

  • From the perspective of,

  • whatever it is that you choose to do as a business,

  • or career,

  • does that line up with your true purpose?

  • Your purpose meaning,

  • you having healed from a pain in the past.

  • And if you have a pain right now

  • that you haven't healed from yet

  • then it's time to look at it a little more closely.

  • If you're dealing with something like that then I urge you to

  • when you're ready, to look at it.

  • And to look at it from a very centered place.

  • You're going to get deeper and deeper and deeper into who you truly are.

  • And the reason why I say this with so much passion

  • is because I've gone through this.

  • And I am still going through this.

  • I mean life is a journey in itself.

  • So we all are evolving and expanding and growing.

  • But I wanted to share this with you because it is life-changing.

  • You will look at life way differently when you can actually understand that the painful experiences you're going through

  • are actually guiding you to a deeper purpose

  • that you have within you.

  • So, I'd love to hear from you.

  • If you're currently going through some painful experience and you're wanting to overcome it

  • and you are overcoming it and you're starting to see a purpose underneath that

  • and all of that! Then please tell me. Share. Tell me, tell me, tell me.

  • And for anybody out there who you know who is going through a painful time in their lives

  • then please, share this with them.

  • Maybe this will help them.

  • I really hope this video was helpful to you.
