Just recently I came across Daniel Pink’s Pinkcast where he shares a simple formula to discover your life purpose: G + P + V = C. 

Gifts + Passions + Values = Calling

Gifts – natural most enjoyed talents. Those things you want to just get up and do. Just stuff you’re good at and love to do

Passions – what you’re curious about and really care about and interested in

Values – where you do what you do.  Is it a culture that values you where you have a voice where you have a sense of wanting to go there and be there

Calling – is different than a job or career.  Getting up and using the gifts passions and values.  Brings you energy, aliveness, health, happiness and productivity

This is what I came up with for myself:

MY Gifts – Strategic/ big picture thinking; public speaking; motivator; organization; life engineering; simplification! 

MY Passions – Health, happiness, relationships, money, well-being, women empowerment

In a culture that also appreciates MY Values – Discipline, organization, excellence, beauty, elegance, integrity, simplicity and grit

MY Calling – is about empowering women to become the healthiest, sexiest, happiest and most confident version of themselves. It’s about ending obesity and the human suffering as a result of it through nutrition, well-being and workforce health.

And everyday, I am very grateful that not only am I aware of my purpose but every single day I do get up and use my gifts, passions and values to the best of my abilities. I honestly think it’s the only reason why I’m so happy in a world where I can find any little excuse to be unhappy.  

Another question to ask yourself is: What makes you get out of bed every morning? 

For me, aside from my kids waking me up 🙂 what makes me get up is this sense of renewed energy and genuine curiosity to see what the day will bring.  Sure, I always have a full agenda but being extremely curios and doing things that I love makes get up and conquer the day.  How would you answer that question?

With love, health and happiness,
