Having a sense of purpose is vital to wellbeing. A purpose embodies all of the things that we care about most and tends to be shaped by our beliefs, values, and goals. A sense of purpose is what drives motivation and it is also what keeps us striving towards an ideal future.
For many people, finding a purpose in life can be a long and difficult journey. However, at XL Events, we know that having a sense of purpose can lead to many positive outcomes that can be felt in both your personal and professional life.
Here are five ways having a purpose can transform your life.
- Become more productive
Having a purpose to strive towards can drive your productivity in a big way and will help keep you on track towards achieving your goals. This can be a real asset in the workplace. What we love about our charitable team building activities is that as an organisation, your team have a common goal to work towards helping others. This in turn cements values and personal relationships.
Keep in mind that being busy is not the same thing as being productive. When you have a sense of meaning and purpose, your productivity increases because you are far more likely to be passionate about and committed to accomplishing the things that matter most.
- Learn how to prioritise
Knowing and understanding your purpose brings with it a sense of clarity and will give you the tools you need to understand what is most important. This not only helps you to define and prioritise your goals but will help push you to reach beyond your comfort zone to achieve them. Many of the team building activities we host help team members to prioritise and bring forth leaders we potentially may not have seen previously.
- Build resilience
When it comes to facing down difficulties or obstacles, having a purpose is a little like having your own built-in cheerleader. It keeps you on track, provides you with something to focus on, and ensures you have a reason to keep moving forward.
- Enjoy better relationships
Personal and professional wellbeing depends on the quality of the relationships we have with others. Having this connection with those around us, whether with loved ones, colleagues, or the wider community, can affect what we consider to be our purpose in life.
We often see our relationships as a form of support and use them to draw strength and encouragement. This can also go a long way towards ensuring we are able to fulfil our purpose.
When relationships sour, rather than being a promoter of wellbeing, they become a source of negativity and stress. This is where XL Events corporate team building activities can make a difference. Our programs are a great way to build positive relationships amongst your team and will also help ensure they have the tools necessary to achieve their purpose at work and in life.
- Make a difference to others
In recent years, the idea of social responsibility has become increasingly popular. More and more, people are realising that making a difference within the community also provides a genuine sense of purpose and meaning in their own lives.
With our increasingly hectic lifestyles, it is not always easy to find the time to do your part. Whether it involves cooking a meal for the homeless or putting smile on a child’s face, XL Event’s charity team building activities are a great way to strengthen your team, create meaning and purpose and build a culture of corporate social responsibility.
