“True happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.” – John Mason Brown
One of the main reasons why people find themselves unhappy in life is due to the fact that they have not found their true purpose.
There are many individuals who still feel desolate in spite of all their achievements, recognition, affluence and possessions combined.
This is why it is so essential to reframe our perspectives so that we can find our bigger purpose in life sooner than later.
Our REFRAME Masterclass is a discovery programme that enables you to achieve greater clarity, capability and context around your purpose.
It can help reframe your experiences and successes to design the best life possible for you – a life which can be filled with joy, engagement and meaning.
The masterclass can be broken down into 4 simple steps for easier comprehension and today’s article will provide you with a little more information on the first step – understanding your role.
Understanding Your Role
Every individual plays a different role and carries a specific function within an organisation. More often than not, a person’s designation title may only be one of the many roles they have to take on within their company.
For instance, you may be a senior executive but you may not know your role as a leader. You may be a teacher but may be unaware of your role as a mentor. Similarly, you may be an employee but you may not have known your role as an influencer.
“Every role that you play comes with its own set of challenges.” – Mireille Enos
In order to deliver your best efforts at work, it is essential that you identify the various roles you play within your organisation. Only then will you be able to know who to serve, what to do and where to go in times of need.
Recognising the importance behind roles can also help to foster the value of cohesiveness between colleagues while allowing leaders to “match skills” with the right people.
Additionally, identifying the roles individuals play in the office can enable effective communications to take place between the various groups which will in turn, facilitate the full integration of the department and organisation as a whole.
After having identified the multiple roles you play within your company, it is important to realise which of these roles truly allow you to bring about the greatest impact.
If you are facing difficulty in identifying this particular role on your own, you can turn to previous conversations with your fellow colleagues for some clues!
Perhaps, you could recall some events or tasks where co-workers mentioned your role had impacted, helped, moved, challenged or even inspired them to take further action.
When others have positively benefited from your role to the point where they remember your contributions, it can provide you with a glimpse of an idea about what your best played roles within an organisation could be!
Our REFRAME programme helps individuals find greater clarity in one’s life over a 2-day Masterclass as they shift from making a living to living their life wholesomely while also helping people to find their Element and discover their true purpose in life.
