What is your purpose in life? What is your unique contribution to world, one that is genuinely yours? What gets you out of bed and fired up on those days when life doesn't seem so wonderful? And what do these questions have to do with attracting and building your ideal relationship?
When you get clear on your life mission, you also get clear about how to live to accomplish your mission, making relationship decisions and choices effortless. In this way you can take much of guesswork out of what you need to do to have true love in your life.
No more writing long lists of partner qualities you're not sure you deserve. Once you are in touch with your life mission, you will have a clear picture of kind of partner who will help, not hinder, your efforts. No more wondering if you should tell someone they need to treat you better. You will demand best possible treatment. You will have no time or energy for anything less.
To define what a life mission is, let's first take a look at what a life mission is not:
* It is not what your parents told you your life is for * It is not what society tells your life is for * It is not your career, although it can be expressed through your career * It is not accumulating wealth * It is not some grand plan that is imposed on you * It is not what you think it should be
A life mission is:
* That something you do that makes you feel completely alive while contributing to others * Activities you do naturally, that you have a natural knack for * A part of you that has always been there as long as you remember * A flame that burns deep inside you * Your intrinsic contribution to humanity
