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
