Our fears are powerful forces that can distract us every day and hold us back from following our dreams. With the economy and climate change affecting our world, fear can feel paralyzing and stop us from moving ahead with plans, ideas, and even our purpose in life. It can be tempting to let go of an idea based on fear of failure. We can procrastinate on taking the next step because fear stops us in our tracks. However, taking calculated risks and making mistakes is how we learn, grow, and become better versions of ourselves.
Knowing your purpose in this world comes with many advantages. For example, people with a deep sense of purpose tend to be happier, recover faster from illness, feel more motivated and live longer. Understanding your purpose and leveraging it as your innate ‘superpower’ can give you a new perspective on fear and see it for what it is–a cloudy concept that you have the strength and desire to move through and beyond.
Having a sense of fear is natural. The good news is that Anna believes everyone on this earth also has a purpose. Anna teaches people how to detect their purpose, define it, question limiting beliefs, and unleash meaning in the world to improve our lives. The Purpose Equation, a program offered by Anna Hall, helps people develop their sense of purpose to see beyond real or perceived barriers holding them back from living their best, most fulfilling life.
Anna Hall Loves Purpose
Anna is a thought leader in the realm of human engagement who has taken it as her duty to help people realize their purpose in life. Through a six-hour program or a cohort-based course, workshops, and a card game called Spark Start™, Anna’s tools for purpose discovery and activation are time-tested and effective for people of all ages who want to experience more clarity, motivation, self-affirmation, and focus in daily life.
Anna doesn’t believe fears magically disappear, but she knows they can be moved through and diminished when purpose takes the lead. Many of Anna’s purpose teachers have been older adults living with a deep sense of purpose in their 80s and 90s. Their wisdom, stories, and daily ‘reasons to rise’ to keep going in life, keep making a difference, keep helping, and keep teaching – inspired Anna to research purpose and experiment with finding the most effective, streamlined methods to discover and activate a meaningful, heart-centered, emotionally intelligent way to tackle daily life with zest. A life that feels purposeless is destined to result in regrets, missed opportunities, and stagnation.
Anna has seen the power of purpose first-hand by helping people realize that their purpose can be a foundation for leaping into life with excitement and hope. She’s seen executives finally take control of their careers and pursue jobs more aligned with their values and strengths. She’s helped college students find their purpose and then choose a major based on their desire and curiosity – and excel – rather than settling for the field of study they think they should choose for status or parent-pleasing reasons. She’s guided retirees to find their purpose and start truly loving their life for the first time in their 70s. She’s seen leaders embrace purpose in their companies and realize greater focus and productivity from their teams.
Most importantly, Anna’s approach to purpose discovery is fun, uplifting, and exciting. It doesn’t feel like drudgery. Most people fall in love with their purpose when they find out about it. They are amazed to find who they aspired to be–they already are!–It’s simply a matter of continuing to lean into their unique, innate combination of strengths, gifts, values, intrinsic motivations, and joy to overcome fear, believe in oneself, and realize those aspirations.
