Awakening the Purpose of Life: Power Coaching

Doing things that are consistent with one’s nature always are fulfilling and bring meaning to self. And amidst those cues of actions, life hides its purpose. Discovering it is bit like “Treasure Hunt” game- challenging, stimulating, frustrating at times- but exciting nonetheless.

Great Masters, both of the past and present have emphasized on discovering Purpose of Life.

For a coach, it would be a powerful action to challenge the client in discovering his/her Life-Purpose. And for the Client, it could potentially be an extremely engaging, creative and fulfilling experience. While ‘finding purpose’ may not be the expected coaching outcome- but finding that primordial source of Energy and, building subsequent actions/programs around it could be a very empowering and liberating experience for the client.

Here are some great quotes on Purpose:

“Make your work to be in keeping with your purpose”- Leonardo da Vinci

“He who has a ‘why’ to live for can almost bear any ‘how’”- Friedrich Nietzsche

“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it”- Gautama the Buddha
Bringing in the Purpose aspect is bringing in the Alchemy- it can transform the coaching process into something extraordinarily precious


  1. Agree. Purpose empowers.

    During my study and use of MBTI over the last one year, I have come to realise the personality type is a very good pointer in the direction of one's purpose.

  2. Thanks for sharing it Sachin. Yes, I do agree. A good personality assessment tool does aid in clarifying one's purpose.

  3. Dear Rajesh
    Agree with u wholeheartedly.
    Without purpose life would be a vacuum.
    I feel life is game where we all are assigned roles and need to play giving it our all.

    Tried seeing some of the things but got linked to gmail??
