“Purpose for me is a living breathing journey of discovery of what I can contribute to the world, why I’m actually here, and that’s been so important for me because it doesn’t stop it, it evolves, it grows, it manifests, and it actually pours out into the spaces that I work, the work that I do and the people I’m around.”
Pride Maunatlala is a purpose coach with 18 years of experience connecting brands to purpose and profit.
Nwabisa sits down with Pride to chat about what Purpose means to her. Over the years, Pride has developed a very clear idea of what her purpose is.
“My purpose is to enlighten and illuminate other people’s purpose within them. My superpower is clarity, I create clarity in the spaces that I'm in, and so my purpose is to bring that clarity to others to see what their purpose is.”
Pride’s cheat-sheet for discovering and articulating your purpose includes asking yourself the following questions:
Who are the people, and what are the experiences that are common in my life? (Look for things that are common in your life. )
If I don’t exercise my purpose, what will the world lose? (Look for the things you do that make other people feel better than they did before you came into the room.)
