Life Purpose: A Unique Way to Learn Why You’re Here

By Pamelabrowncoaching @coach_pam_brown

For almost a year, I have dedicated my life to discovering my purpose for living.  A life-threatening illness has a way of helping you to re-evaluate your life and not waste another second of it with meaningless pursuits.

Up until last year, I never realized how important it was to know why you’re here.  I didn’t realize how it provides stability during the tough times in life, or how useful it makes you feel.

I didn’t realize how meaningful purpose makes your life, or how it provides the much-needed direction that we all need.  I’m still amazed at how the school systems don’t think life skills are important enough to stay in a cirriculum.

But, that’s another battle…

The Quest for Purpose

So, I begin asking myself important questions such as:

  • What am I passionate about?
  • What makes me angry?
  • What did I struggle with and how did I overcome it?
  • What are my core values (important things in life) and how can I live those each day?


Even though I got some very interesting answers from those questions, they still didn’t truly inspire me.  Something was still missing, and I decided to try other methods.


I am thankful that I can be open-minded and explore other avenues to discover my life purpose.  And with that being said, I decided to try numerology.

Not astrology, but numerolgy- the science of numbers.  I felt safe using this method since numbers hold special meaning in the Bible.  So, I felt that maybe this could be a somewhat logical path to explore.  And besides, I love learning new things.

If you want to learn more about numerology, please visit Peaceful Warrior.

Through using numerology, I tapped into some insight that touched me so deeply that it’s hard to ignore that you may have finally stumbled onto your reason for being.


What I Discovered

I discovered that my life path theme is vision and acceptance.  Accepting yourself for who you are; accepting others for who they are; and empowering others to see their “unique perfection”.

I have high ideals (which is true).  I tend to be a perfectionist, and perfectionism happens to be a challenge that I am to overcome.  Perfectionism keeps me from moving forward in business and life (so true).  Perfectionism is also directly related to self-worth, which affects every area of your life, especially money ( and I crave financial abundance and recognition).

I am to help people to see and express the highest vision of themselves.  I am to learn to accept myself and others so that I can guide others to be their best selves.

It is so true that I struggle with disappointment.  I appoach situations with very high ideals, and when those ideals aren’t met, I get disappointed.  Sometimes critical.  And that affects my happiness, health, and success.

My life purpose has helped me to further understand who I am, and that’s one of the best gifts you can give yourself.



So I suggest checking out Peaceful Warrior’s Way, and use the insights as a way to guide you to discovering your life purpose.  It’s nice to have some type of guidance in something that can seem so daunting and difficult.  Have you discovered your purpose?
