I often get asked how I found my purpose in life and how I knew what I would end up doing as a career. So this week I wanted to share with you how I found my purpose in life and how you can discover your own purpose in life too.
The truth is I never really knew what I wanted to do – in school all I was certain of was that I wanted to run my own business. The teachers would always laugh when I’d say I’d be the product and I didn’t have to invent anything. Looking back I think was my intuition giving me a glimpse into the future, I knew it would be successful and online but how did I know that when YouTube and Blogging didn’t even exist. After leaving school I worked a lot of retail jobs which I hated. I also worked as a banking manager which again I hated, I didn’t want to put innocent people in debt. I feel this is where I first knew I wanted to help people.
It was only after being left in £7,000 by my first ex-boyfriend that I knew something had to be done. There was no support for situations like mine, I just had to suck it up and pay it off basically. In my time of need and now having to pay £7,000 off, I had to learn how to money-save. This is what led me to Extreme Couponing and eventually led me to start my successful brand Extreme Couponing and Deals UK LTD. Again, at this point, I just wanted to ensure that no one had to go through what I did and that no matter what people could obtain free food and not pay full price. The rest, as they say, is history this business took off massively and five years on here we are. So I wouldn’t say I knew my purpose at all by this point – I just wanted to help people.
So when did I discover my purpose? Well, it was after my second break up when I found the Law of Attraction. I knew I would eventually sell my couponing business and would honestly sit and think ‘F*** what am I going to do for the rest of my life’. I wasn’t a money-saver anymore and I had these incredible platforms which could be used for so much more. Once I’d learnt the Law of Attraction I knew this was my calling. Over the last two years now almost since I’ve been doing Law of Attraction, I’ve slowly learnt why all these experiences happened to me and how they have shaped my purpose here.
I believe my purpose is to awaken people, help them to find their own purpose and lead them to Spirituality. By being real-life proof that you can manifest your dream life in under twelve months as an everyday ordinary woman – I’m relatable and well honest about all the experiences I encounter. Through my videos, blog posts, podcast episodes, life coaching, merchandise and books *manifesting*. I’m going to share the message of the Universe and help so many others live authentic epic lives. Who knows as I delve further into my journey this may expand or even change. That’s the beauty of this our life’s purpose can be so many wonderful things.
So how can you find your own life’s purpose? You can’t force it to come to you. It will only make itself known when the time is right and when you’re ready to learn it. The best thing to do is something that makes you happy, makes you feel fulfilled and excited to turn up every day. You can also ask for guidance from your Angels, Spirit Guides or The Universe as to what job you should go for or what next step to take. No matter what you’re already on the path to discovering your purpose and one day you will know what it is – so get excited about that! I had a business previous to my couponing one, I’m also a qualified nail technician and had my own salon in my home. So it’s taken me three businesses to find my real calling and my lifelong business which is myself! Just like I told my teachers all those years ago.
