1. Class Intro : Discover Your Purpose in 5 Steps: There comes a time in each of our lives when we really want to know what we are meant for what we really need to do. What makes us truly happy? What is something that gives meaning to our life? Whether money should be our only objective, or is there something more satisfying than that? When any of that question strikes are mine, that is the time idea frame, then you badly need to know your purpose in life. And hence my dear friend, this class is where you will get your answers. Where we are going to unfold through five steps to discover your purpose in life. This is a dual long, exhaustive glassware. Through each of those steps we are going to introspect and right. And in the end, we will define and know how to execute a lifeboat. This class will be fun. It will make you emotionally, especially when we are uncovering step. But more than anything, you will feel a lot lighter, contended and meaningful. Once you finish this class. Just a brief about me. I'm the teacher, go 90 from India and I loved designing classes on sale fell on first reading in this class is another revelation, a discovery for me to share with you my learnings on life, on how to discover your life. Believe me, when I found one, it changed my life and hence I want to share it with you. I'm very excited to share all that I have for you. I believe U2 are excited. And if yes, let's march on to the first lesson of this class where I'll give you some facts about why knowing your life purpose is super important. And then after that, we are going to match onto the very steps, onto the real exercises that you need to do to find your purpose in life. So let's jump straight into the first lesson of this masterclass. 2. Why PURPOSE Is Super Important: First of all, a big welcome to you for joining the course. In this video, I'm going to tell you why discovering your life purpose is super important. I'm going to reference the work of big stretch or who has written in his book, life of purpose, that having a purpose at seven years to your life, it reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. Then he says It goods here, risk of Alzheimer's disease. Also. He also says having a purpose can help you sleep better. It can help you increase good cholesterol. And all of this is absolutely free without a drug when you know your life purpose. Not only him, but psychologists have found that people whose lives were meaningful were found to be healthy with lower cortisol levels that help reduce stress and make people sleep better. You know, there was a study on 12,000 employees where it was found that employees who derive meaning from their work were three times more loyal. They add 1.7 times higher job satisfaction and 1.4 times more working easement. You see this is what having a purpose does to your life. This is how you feel when you do something meaningful, something connected strongly do you, you become more fulfill, you become more satisfied, and you are in more thing and connection with yourself. Having said all that, I am sure now you are more eager to discover your life purpose. So let's jump straight into the next lesson where I'll tell you what you will need during this class to do this wonderful activity of finding the life purpose together. 3. CLASS Requirements: So what you will be needing for this class is not much. Believe me. I won't trouble you that much. But what you need is a big sheet of drawing paper like this and a pen. And I want you to write on top of it your name like this. So my name is Danny. I have written it here. Then, right, discovering my life purpose. Then I want you to get a scale and divide your big sheet into five sections like this, where steps one and step two are going to take the largest piece. So we are going to give them a bigger space. And steps 34.5, you can divide it equally. Now pause the video, divide your sheets, as I have said. And once you have done, let's march on to the next lesson where we're going to decode step one, which is a very exciting and fun step to do alone. So let's do this. 4. STEP 1 : Things You're Good at: Now that you're all set with your pen and paper, I want you to write a few things as part of step one, which is to write everything that you're good at or you're comfortable doing. This could be cooking, traveling, dancing, writing, editing, coding, or literally anything that you are good at. I would request you to follow me here with heart, even though at this moment it may sound illogical. But when you will be at step five, then you'll appreciate why we have done this step. One, think and write at least ten things that you are good at. E.g. in my case, I am good at editing. I'm good at driving a car. I'm good at writing content for videos on self-help. I'm good at making videos. I'm good at face reading. I'm good at playing cricket and badminton. I'm okay at cooking. I'm good at cycling. I do good in my office work as well. I'm good at speaking and giving public speeches. And then I think that makes my score to ten things that I'm good at. Similarly, find your super ten. Don't think here that I'm boasting my skills here. Of course not. It's just the exercise that you need to do to discover something important for you. Definitely you will uncover later. So pause this video now, maybe for five-minutes, think and write the ten things you are good at. And I want you to stress yourself to think of at least ten good things you do. I'm sure you'll be able to do it. Believe me, I have done this activity with volunteers and they were super delighted in this first step and first process itself, right? Whatever you are good at without judging yourself. Now that you have written the ten things that you do well, or it could be eight that you have written. It's okay to proceed. Now for all those activities that you are good at that you have written to complete step one, rate yourself mentally on each of those activities out of ten. So for me, I would give myself a seven on ten in my video editing, 610 on my driving, 7.10 on my writing, 8.10 on my videos. I hope you're enjoying my video, 8.10 for my fees, seating scale 7.10 on both cricket and badminton, 5.10 on my cooking because I just make edible food. My mom is fantastic at cooking. Do you cook? I read myself 7.10 on cycling, 7.10 on my office workers. Well, 8.10 probably on my speaking and public speeches. So just read yourself without judgment, truly, honestly from your heart on your activities. And that will complete step one for this masterclass. I hope you have enjoyed this tape to know what you're good at. But the next step, step two, is going to be supercritical for this class because it's something that will make you emotional. It will make you a nostalgic, but more importantly, it will give you a glimpse of where your purpose could reside. So let's jump into the next video where we are going to uncover step two of this masterclass. 5. STEP 2 : Writing Down Pains: Hi, I hope you have enjoyed the step one. In this video, I'm going to tell you about the very critical step in discovering your life purpose. That is step two. In step two, what you have to do is to think and write off all the pains, the sufferings that you have suffered gone through or causes that appeal to you the most. Meaning it could be your emotional pain, the heartbreak to have gone through all the financial pain, or the losses you have suffered, or how money impacted a major relationship you have always desired file. Or it could be the causes like poverty that you see around you or children not getting an education or for nature that is suffering, that appeals you the most. I want you to write all the paints that you have gone through, all that appeal to you the most. And this also, I want you to write at least ten pins, one by one. So think of it, I'm sure you'll be able to write more than that. But to start with, I want you to write ten. So think what pain the difficult moment comes immediately to your mind. For me, the first one that comes immediately in my mind is relationship failure, the cheating that I experienced in my relationship because I had less money. The second one was when I suffered financially and I had a huge education loan to pay and had less salary to begin with, to the extent that it was difficult at one stage to even manage my food expenses. Those memories or something that really stuck with me. The third one was when I suffered another relationship failure where the person I loved was wonderful. We hired a good tuning. But again, because of less money to go forward to the biggest step, we couldn't proceed. The fourth one was when banks rejected me to give a loan for my higher education because I had no assets to take a loan with. The fifth one was when I didn't have money to write for my entrance examination, that is for my MBA. Another one was when I fail to execute what I wanted to do, my passion to play cricket, again because of less money. So as I have shared a few of mine rate at least ten paints and the difficulties that you have gone through one-by-one, honestly, on step two, on this, people pause the video for a few minutes and think about it. This exercise is going to touch your soul, is going to connect you to your true inner self. It's going to make you emotionally, but it's something that is very critical towards discovering your purpose in life. Write them down. Now, the pains of your life that you feel close to you or that are still stuck in your mind. Go down memory lane of your life and write them all down before we marched onto the next lesson to uncover step three. Just remember, after step two, you may feel emotionally, you may feel a lot lighter within your head and all that is absolutely okay. And that also confirms that you have done this step two in an honest way. So do it. And once you do it, Let's march onto the step three in the next lesson. 6. STEP 3 : The FEELINGS experienced: Now that we have done step two, which I know would have made you super emotional in this step three, I want you to write the feelings that you have experience in all those spins that you have written in step two. What example? I failed in secured because of less money. I feel low self-esteem whenever spacing rejections boat in my relationships and through the banks and through my jobs. I felt nobody needs to go through the mental state of suffering that I have been through in my relationships. I fed loan confidence when I was rejected for absolutely everything. I even felt money solves everything in life and I fell to void emotionally. Going through all these pains, I failed, whether I'll ever be able to do good in my life. All those feelings I felt and I am telling you honestly. So write down all those feelings that you experience in all those pains that you have gone through or suffered. Just a hint through your pains that you have written in step two against that, write down what feelings you experience going through that pain. Was it the wideness, the insecurity, the low self-esteem, low self confidence, or less trust on the world, whatever it is, just write it down against the pains that you have written. A poise, right? Against European the feelings, experience and when you're done with it, this completes step three of the process of discovering your life purpose. Once you have written all the feelings that you have experienced against the pain you have gone through. Now, I would want you to match on to the step four in the next lesson. 7. STEP 4 : The MOST Critical Question: I hope you're enjoying this class and you rarely, if yes, let's discover what's there in step four. Step four is very interesting because here I want you to answer one very critical question. The most important question for this whole class until now from yourself, which is what is the biggest pain that you have gone through, but you don't want those to go to. So again, go to what you have written in step two, identify the top two to three paints that you have suffered. But you don't want those to go through it. For me, I fell down. I felt low on confidence. I felt motivated because of money failures in life that affected all areas of my life, including my career and relationships. I don't want others to go through the same emotional pain and financial failures that I have been through. This was my top pane and I don't want others to go through it. Write down your topic or two to three top pains that you don't want others to go through. This is a very important step because it's something that will get you closer to discovering your purpose in the latter part of our classes. So think about it. What's the biggest pain? What is something that you don't want others to go through? Write it down in this step, step four. And once we have written it, I want you to match onto the next step where we are going to uncover the real purpose of your life. So let's jump into the next lesson. 8. STEP 5 : HOW can you alleviate PAIN: We have marched onto the final step of this masterclass, which is step five of very interesting step. In this step, I want you to ask yourself this question. How can you alleviate or remove the biggest two or three paints that you have suffered? So to answer this question, I want you to look at what you have written in step one to identify what you can do to alleviate this biggest pain of yours. So for me, my biggest pain, as I highlighted was the emotional breakdown, the emotional pain in my relationships in my career that I have gone through, that I don't want others to go through. So how can I counter this big pain is what I have to think through step one, where I have written activities that I'm good at. So I have written that I'm good at making videos for self-help and I'm good at doing face reading as well. Hence, I design classes on self-help and personal development to motivate people and videos on YouTube regarding the same. And I helped my clients through faith Sweden in their relationships. That really makes me feel the best when I write content on self-help because it's something that is connected to the deepest of my pin, that is connecting knee to the real passion of what I like doing. I cannot alleviate this emotional pain of mine through cycling, through spots that I play, through driving cars, through cooking, although I'm okay or average at all those activities. But I can alleviate this pain. I have gone through to what I am good and what I feel best at doing that is through designing videos and doing face reading. So answer this question. What activities from your step one you can do to counter this top paint that you have gone through. Just go through all that you are good at from step one and mark them now, just pause this video and mark them now. Once you have done this, now is the time when we are going to write our purpose. So for me, I'm sharing my purpose with you just to help you how you can write it. Which is to make people feel empowered and motivated when they are less hopeful in their lives. And I execute this purpose by designing classes, self-help videos, and through faith reading. Write your purpose your, and remember, it is the exact opposite of the pain you have gone through. Meaning, I felt low on self-esteem. I failed week. So my purpose became to make people feel empowered and motivated. Another purpose which I can share up my dad is to make people healthy who have gone through major illnesses in their lives. And he executes his purpose through one of his wonderful skills, which are through alternative medicines and acupressure. Again, this is also connected to the pain that he himself has experienced when he was not able to cure his estimate for close to 25 years from his boat. And he has been through a major lung issue that get him into this health industry to discover more of what he can do to cure. Where he decided that he needs to help people who are going through the same pain through the health issues, through acupressure and through his alternative therapies. In fact, now, he has a whole clinic dedicated to that purpose. So find out what you can do and where you have experienced the biggest pain. That my dear friend is going to define a pretty major part of your purpose. Your purpose now, and also write what you can do to execute your purpose. Pause, think over, introspect and see what comes through to your mind. This exercise is really going to be a revelation for you. Do it with the heart. And I'm sure you'll be able to write your purpose. Once you have done that, I want you to go to the next lesson where I will unfold for you the class project. Let's go through it. We are very, very close to finishing this masterclass. 9. Skillshare CLASS Project: Well, you have made it so far. This is really, really incredible. And in this video I'm going to ask you to share your life purpose when you have written it down and upload it as a class project. So what you have to include your is defining your purpose and how you will execute your life purpose. Remember, step one is the key. It's very simple, but once you write it and upload it, I'm sure you are going to execute it. So share with this community and in case you have any doubts about defining your purpose, just write whatever you can and I'll make sure to help you complete that. Remember, this exercise is going to be life-changing for you. Write your purpose, whatever you can, click the photograph of it and upload it in the project section. Once you did it, Let's march onto the final video of this class, where I'm going to just celebrate, you. 10. Congratulations: Congratulations, you have made it to the end of this class because it takes excitement, a bit of skepticism when you start the class thinking whether it'd be worth it or not. I hope it is worth it. But you have shown the discipline to finish this class and that I think is an exceptional quality in you. I really hope that this class adds value to your life and helps you define your purpose in life. Even if it's not for life, at least for a period of next four to five years where you can just know what you feel connected to and you can take baby steps in executing that. Because it really feels voted, even if you're not making money from an activity that you're doing. But if it's something that is connected to your purpose, you really feel lively and you feel joyful. When I was doing my ID job and making money, I felt okay. But when I really engaged in designing videos for courses on self-help and motivation. When I started doing face reading, I really felt joy back in my life. That is what purpose does to you. It is rarely more than money. It is really more than what you can think of will do to your life. So find one. You have to revisit some of the steps. Do that. But it's going to be life-changing when you find a purpose for yourself. Remember that, just, just, just remember this, that your purpose gives meaning to your life. And when you do something meaningful, you feel happy. So find one. If you like this class, feel free to share your thoughts and your reviews. I'll be glad to see them and make sure to not forget to upload your class project. Now I'd say goodbye to you. I hope you have enjoyed this class.
