300- Identity and Purpose

Over the last few days, I’ve met many people with a strong sense of purpose and identity.

It’s a powerful combination that projects confidence and intention, especially when it shows up with alignment and integrity.

Purpose and identity, however, are two separate things. The former – is the why that drives what we do – while the latter is the how.

Anyone who’s ever experienced a career shift or a large setback has experienced that doubt about “how” to contribute to their purpose.

In those moments, our identity – our place within the ecosystem – slips, and we’re left feeling confused, frustrated, and disoriented.

Finding that identity again takes time – but as long as we can hold onto our purpose, the rest will take care of itself.
