What are your life’s messages?
If you wanted to make a contribution, what would bring you joy?
What are the things that you love to do and that brings joy?
A life message is something that is so intrinsically part of who you are. It's obvious by how you live your life, what you do, and how you do it. Your life message is important because it is connected to your values, your experiences, your internal transformations, and your relationship with God. When you express yourself, knowing who you are, others believe your message because it has truth, authority (because you have lived it), and integrity behind it.
Life messages are intertwined with your purpose. Together they are the places where you can bring hope and freedom to the world.
A Life Message can be a very short phrase but when you unpack these words, you find there are much deeper meanings and a bigger message which you could speak about for hours. Hey, you've lived it!
One of my Life Messages is: “People are valuable beyond measure”. So much of my coaching is helping people to see their unique value. Often we will have to heal traumatic memories where limiting beliefs were learned. These limiting beliefs get in the way or block your ability to see who you really are, your value as a human being, and the positive impact you could have in the world. Those pesky limiting beliefs can keep you stuck in negative patterns because of fear.
What would you get on a Soapbox about?
One of the ways we can discover our life messages is to notice what we could get on a soapbox and talk about. For me, I could go on and on about people taking advantage of others and not valuing them. I get angry when I see people misusing their authority and robbing others (oftentimes children) of having a healthy self-confidence or quality of life to be able to follow their dreams. We all deserve to know at the core of our being that we are worthy and deserving of love and respect and that God loves us unconditionally. So you can see why I have that particular life message, it came from my life experiences of not feeling valued by my parents. It’s taken me a lifetime of learning, discovering, healing, and breakthrough to see my value and I am committed to helping others see theirs.
Here’s a great journaling exercise for you to start discovering your life message or messages. Ask yourself these questions and write down your answers.
- What makes you mad/angry?
- What do you see on the news or a movie that makes you shout at the TV?
- What do you find yourself unable to stop engaging in and giving your point of view on?
- What would you love to speak to the president about if you had 15 minutes with them.
- What are the topics that friends and family come to you about or send others to you for because you seem to have a lot of knowledge and a lot to say about?
- What do you disagree with strongly or clash with when others speak about it?
- What is it that you agree with strongly and want everyone to know about when you hear it?
After writing these out, look for a theme. This is a clue to your life message or messages. There are more ways we can hone in and clarify your life messages and we’ll talk about those in another blog. Remember there are reasons why we get angry about certain injustices and when we get clear about them there is a powerful message waiting to be shared with the world.
If you want to know more about your Life Messages and you would like to explore more, I’d love to help you do that. You have a message for the world and you have a purpose. Once you discover yours, you will have more clarity of where and how you’re heading in this life and the difference you’d like to make.
