Having a purpose is the first step in the marketing process, as stated by Jav Conrad Levinson. Many people have tried to define purpose in its purest from. Some people find their purpose handed over to them in a silver platter. Others had to go through much of the years of their lives just to find out. There are many truths to consider about purpose and its relation to your business.
Your business purpose must be aligned with your personal purpose.
There will be that generic conflict of interest in your business if it is not aligned with your personal purpose. You must first be able to get an idea of what you want to do with you life before you actually get to do something else that will benefit other people. The more linked and consistent they are with each other, the less adjustments and conflicts you will encounter.
Your purpose for your business is what will sustain you.
Your purpose will help you get through the ups and downs of your business. If you have a purpose, you will have a target destination, and all means by which you travel will be in accordance to getting to that purpose you had in mind.
The purpose is very important in the sense that it will give you a clear idea of where you are headed and will consequently intuitively lead you to the easiest way to accomplish it.
A business without a purpose is a business that will get nowhere.
If you are putting up a business out of whim or fancy, you cannot expect it to go somewhere. That purpose will keep you grounded. As you go about your business, you will find opportunities to deviate.
There will be so many offers, so many things that will demand your attention. The sense of purpose in your business will help you discern which of these things are worth investing your time upon, and you will do better with such a clutter-free mindset.
It is best to simplify your purpose and take it from there.
The problem with most people is that they complicate their purpose from the very beginning. When they are not getting there, they get frustrated and give up the purpose altogether.
Spreading yourself too thin is a common occurrence among the idealistic, and they end up at the end of the game because they are not well able to manage through the frustrations that come with impossibly high standards.
Writing Down your Purpose Increases Its Likelihood of Being Successful. Your purpose is three times more likely to be accomplished when you write it down. That way, you won’t be able to forget it quickly.
When you merely a mental note of it, there is little chance that you will be driven to work on it. But if you write it down and place the phrase in places that you see on a daily basis, you will be less likely to do things that are contrary to your purpose.
