What is the purpose of your life?
Confucius said whether you believe you can, or you can´t, you´re usually right.
You can achieve anything you want in your life, you just have to believe it. Otherwise you´re gonna find yourself living a mediocre life or even worse somebody else´s life. Studies done in hospitals with elderly people showed that when asked to reflect upon their lives, they most regretted the things they hadn´t done, not the ones they had. I personally believe there is nothing worse than playing small and not living up to your own expectations. Many of us however don´t allow themselves to shine due to fear or because they feel pressured to fulfill other´s expectations. However every human being has been born with a unique gift and it is our responsibility to find out what that is and to act upon it. Otherwise you will one day catch yourself not living the life you wanted to live and that will be ultimately painful. Don´t create your life around safety or money. What safety is there anyways? Even if you work your bud off in a so called safe job and, you might die any moment. So better live a life that you are passioned about. By that you will serve the world best. Tune into your intuition, allow yourself to be guided by your heart in order to do what you feel you really wanna do, instead of what you think you should do. Connect closely to your feelings and see if you are acting from a place of fear, or from love. If you act out of fear you will sooner or later experience regret. If you however act from intuition you will end up living your dream. Therefore find out what you wanna bring into this world, focus on it and then go after it as if your life depended on it, cause it does.
If you could do anything in the world, what would give you most joy? What fires you up?
Remember you are ultimately free to do what you want to do at any given moment. You can always change your life. There is no too late. Try to do everything you can to find out what your destiny is.
As an exercise to get more clarity about your life´s purpose you may ask yourself the following questions:

VI. Why are you the best for this job?
1. Hospice work: I love working with dying people, to accompany and support them as well as bringing some lightness and relieve of fear onto their way, using the tools of meditation and yoga is a great means of comfort when passing on
2.Yoga teaching: workshops, cacao ceremonies: I am super passionate and enthusiastic about those things, this is highly contagious, besides I love what I am transferring and teaching, with that I have lots of knowledge and experience to offer, as I started my practice about six years ago
3. Counseling: I love to share the things I learned from my teachers and pass them on, I believe that a one to one teaching is of incredible value, I can transfer complicated knowledge in a joyous, easy way, referring to the lessons from my own experience as well, connecting with another seeker gives me huge joy and enthusiasm, I don´t believe I am teaching something but rather helping the other to find his own wisdom
4. Male empowering/men circles: I enjoy the company of strong men who go for their purpose and don´t give in to their fears a lot, it is such a great thing to share with them revelations and teachings and thereby learning with and from each other, I can hold the space and atmosphere very welcoming and at the same time inspiring
5. Healing: For me working in the fields of medicine is a great joy, I am very intuitive when it comes to healing people and I can channel energy easily. I learned to heal my own wounds and now I am ready to share that, ever since I can think my connection to the shamanic tradition and mysticism has been very strong and I enthusiastically use their techniques for healing
