How to Uncover Your Purpose When You Don't Know Where to Start with Trang Nguyen (HHR EP41)


"Start with the end in mind and be guided by our heart's purpose, not fears or current reality." -Trang Nguyen



Many of us navigate through life, feeling a sense of unease or incompleteness, even amidst apparent success and accomplishments. It's essential to realize that true success lies in aligning our actions with our heart's purpose, bringing meaning and fulfillment to our lives.

Starting with the end in mind is crucial. By envisioning the impact we want to have, the legacy we wish to leave behind, and the person we aspire to become, we gain clarity and conviction in pursuing our true calling. This clarity provides the foundation for living a life that is authentic to our deepest desires and values.

Trang Nguyen, a purpose and performance mentor, shares her personal journey of transformation. Initially working in the health and sports industry, Trang experienced a moment of profound realization when she accidentally stepped on a snail during a morning run. This seemingly small event triggered a deep awareness of the interconnectedness of all life forms and the urgent need for change in the world.

Trang's quarter-life crisis propelled her towards a career change aimed at creating a positive impact. She emphasizes that even the smallest actions can have a significant ripple effect, nudging us towards our true purpose. Trang's story serves as a reminder that it's never too late to realign our lives with our deepest values and aspirations.

To embark on this transformative journey, it's essential to take immediate action towards fulfilling our heart's purpose. While external factors may pull us back into familiar routines, creating force and momentum towards our goals is crucial. By staying emotionally and spiritually connected to our purpose, we can overcome obstacles and carve out a path that resonates with our true selves.

Trang encourages us to start with a big vision of our purpose and gradually break it down into actionable steps. Regularly reflecting on our strengths and capabilities, visualizing our desires, and staying connected to our purpose can help us navigate past self-doubt and imposter syndrome.

Imposter syndrome, a common experience for many, can cloud our perception of self-worth and capability. However, by acknowledging our unique strengths and celebrating our successes, we can rise above these doubts and step into our full potential.

As we journey towards uncovering our purpose, let us remember that success is not merely attaining external milestones but aligning our actions with our heart's deepest desires. By staying true to ourselves, connecting with our purpose, and affirming our worth, we can create a life filled with abundance, fulfillment, and meaningful impact.

Let us embrace the challenge of uncovering our purpose, trusting that by living authentically and aligning our actions with our heart's calling, we can leave a positive mark on the world and inspire future generations.


Trang is a Purpose and Performance Mentor who helps you as you pivot, redefine your career, or transform your life to live out your purpose and potential. In her mid 20's, Trang experienced a quarter-life crisis that led her to leave the sports industry so she could contribute to change at a more comprehensive and global scale. Now, Trang is determined to help other women step into their greatest power and thrive in their lives of impact. Because ultimately, when enough individuals are thriving, then humanity will thrive. And when humanity thrives, then the world can thrive for all forms of life and future generations.
