Defining My Purpose (Plus, An Invitation to Discover Yours)

defining my purpose- Jessica Lawlor

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” –Pablo Picasso


Man, that’s a heavy word.

Do you have a purpose? (Well, yes, of course you do; everyone does!)

But, more importantly…do you know what your purpose is? (Much harder question)

Sometimes in life you encounter people who are truly living out their purpose. When you meet them, it’s SO abundantly clear that they are doing exactly what they’re meant to do.

That’s how I felt when I met Brittany Policastro.

Brittany came into my life serendipitously through social media. A friend invited me to a Facebook event- an advanced yoga teacher training. Curious, I marked the event “Interested.”

A few days later, I received a notification that Brittany had posted a message in the training. She wrote that she was seeking social media assistance, in exchange for participating in the training. I jumped on the opportunity and messaged Brittany.

We met in person a few days later and I was immediately drawn to Brittany’s magnetic personality: she’s strong, inspiring, kind and passionate. She’s the kind of person you want on your team.

Brittany KNOWS her purpose. She’s fulfilling it and living it, 100 percent.

That’s why I’m sharing with you today details on Brittany’s amazing online course, Rock Your Purpose.

(Oh, and I’m revealing what I believe MY purpose is…but more on that below)

My Purpose

Your purpose doesn’t need to be long or drawn out. You don’t need to pinpoint just one thing. Your purpose likely isn’t even as complex as you may believe.

After much thinking and reflecting, here’s my purpose. This is my WHY.

I believe that my purpose in life is TO:

  • Live out my mantra, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
  • Inspire others to step outside their comfort zones by sharing my story in a personal and vulnerable manner.
  • Create a welcoming space for others to share THEIR story and their goals.
  • Motivate others to take action on the goals they’ve been burying inside themselves for far too long.
  • Introduce the life-changing practice of yoga to as many people as I possibly can.
  • Help others communicate their message clearly.

I most feel I’m living out my purpose WHEN:

  • I am connecting with members of the Get Gutsy community.
  • I am teaching a yoga class.
  • I am writing.
  • I am speaking.
  • I am sharing my story.
  • I am helping others to communicate clearly and with purpose.
  • I am a little bit (or a lot bit!) uncomfortable.
