Confession is good for the soul: 3 Lessons For Clarifying Your Purpose

I have a confession to make. You may already know, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram. On February 1, 2017, I announced that it had been 22 days since I posted anything on IG. Now, for some, that may not be that big of a deal and it may not seem like a long time. For me, it was hard because I went from posting 5 days a week consistently for 8 months to posting nothing at all.

This was hard for so many reasons, but mainly because I love to encourage and motivate people. We are already dealing with enough in our individual lives, not to mention what is going on in the world around us! I just wanted to be a part of bringing a smile, laugh or some encouragement to people’s hearts through my daily posts. 


It had to be done. The good thing was that I did learn a couple lessons about clarifying my purpose in the process: to be honest about who you are, what you know you have been called to do and who you have been called to serve. 

1. Be Honest About Who You Are Called to Serve

I came to the brutally honest truth that I wasn’t called to serve everyone.

Yup, it was a tough pill to swallow, but it brought so much freedom, clarity and focus (thanks to my business coach).


You see, having suffered from the savior complex for many years (a condition where you feel the need to fix everything, save everyone and be all things to all people), I realized that the same thing was happening in my business and I was becoming frustrated, confused, overwhelmed and discouraged. I decided that if I was to really serve others fully, I needed to first sit down, reevaluate things, begin the process of rebranding and gain clarity. The intent was to provide targeted and valuable content for those I have the privilege to serve, i.e. YOU.

So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

But seriously, I just felt the need to let you know. 

2. Be Clear About Who You Are

3. Be Clear About What You Were Called To Do

Now that I got that out the way, I feel it is only right to reintroduce myself to you.

My name is Charlene and I am a Life Purpose & Strategy Coach (from the Boogie Down Bronx) who encourages, empowers and equips millennial, professional and service-driven women to BE, DO, and LIVE more in life, purpose and their relationships with the Lord, others and themselves. I walk alongside women to help them discover, clarify and/or develop a plan to begin walking out their purpose. I also coach women around developing/deepening/maintaining healthy relationships with the Lord, others and themselves–essentially becoming a better YOU. 

I want to officially welcome you again and thank you for being here.
Since I am reintroducing myself, I would like to get to know you better, how we got connected, where you’re from and how I can serve you better.

P.S. I created a Facebook group to continue to stay connected and build a community of women who are actively seeking to know their purpose, taking some steps toward their purpose or actively walking in their purpose and need extra support, encouragement and accountability. It is also an opportunity for women to make connections, provide resources, network and create a safe space to share struggles, fears, victories and cheer our fellow sisters on in their pursuit. I would love to have you!
