Welcome to our second ‘How To’ episode!
This is where we choose a common theme or challenge raised in previous episodes and unpeel the topic a little bit more to give you some really practical and actionable tips and tools to try out for yourself.
This week’s episode is all about Purpose, how to think about it (and how not to!) and how to go about finding your own authentic Purpose.
You’ll hear Claire and Greta and a number of our guests talk about purpose in their lives and the really different ways we can all go about finding our own Purpose.
Hear and learn:
- Why you should never worry or feel inadequate about where you are at on your Purpose journey
- The different ways Purpose can reveal itself and there’s not one ‘right’ way
- The journey one guest went on to literally visualise her Purpose
- Whether your Purpose can change or not
- Plus, a number of tips and tools for you to try
