Focusing on your Life Signature…and the meaning of life?
Our life signature is the tracing of the talents we are given and how we express them in our lives.
We are all blessed with a few God-given signature talents. A big part of your life is discovering what these are, then utilising and applying them to the best of your ability.
To clearly define your areas of brilliance, ask yourself a few questions and take some self-assessments. What do you do effortlessly? What do you do that other people find difficult? Here are some places to go to gain self-knowledge about what you do best:

Once you know your signature strengths and passions, it is time to discover your life signature. The above self-assessment resources will help you begin to align your innate signature talents and passions in what you do in your career. Your life signature or life purpose is what drives your focus. They are the catalyst for your future success.
Your life signature is very personal. Some discover their life's purpose at a very early age, while others go through their journey and never figure it out. For most people, their sense of purpose evolves.
Living on purpose is directly connected to giving; practicing the Law of Reciprocity (www.LawofReciprocity.com).
The key phrase is, constantly adding value to others. Those who do favours for others are highly esteemed; they are recognised as people who have respect for those around them. Every previous or current situation produces expectations for future behaviour on the part of the giver and gift recipient.
"One of the most potent of the weapons of influence around us is the rule for reciprocation. The rule says that we should try to repay, in kind, what another person has provided us." Robert B. Cialdini, author of The Psychology of Persuasion (William Morrow, 1993)
Ask yourself, are you experiencing joy in the value you provide to others, in your current job, career or business?
Your life signature and professional goals are linked. When your purpose is ignited, goals become an essential part of your "action plan." Your vision expands and along with it, the need for measurable targets to help you live your vision.
"When you see what you're here for, the world begins to mirror your purpose in a magical way. It's almost as if you suddenly find yourself on a stage, in a play that was written expressly for you." Betty Sue Flowers
