Live on Purpose + Make it Happen Book Review

Lara casey

In Make it Happen, Lara Casey shares 5 ways to create a life of purpose and make it happen. What is your “it”? Maybe you have a goal that you have never been able to reach or a dream you have kept locked away – now is the time to make it happen.

Lara’s steps towards making it happen are not only practical, but very encouraging and thought provoking. I want to share with you her 5 steps and then a few of the thought-provoking questions that I loved most from each step. Believe me, her book is filled with hundreds of other questions that you will want to process though.

After finishing reading Make it Happen, I feel motivated to rid the clutter from my life and live a life of purpose. I hope you are inspired to do the same. If you would like to buy Make it Happen and live a life of purpose, I’ve attached an amazon link for you at the end of this post.

Make it happen

Steps to a Life of Purpose:

1. Evaluate Your Life

  • How are your relationships?
  • How do you feel physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally?
  • What hinders you from living on purpose?
  • Do you feel like you are using your creative passions, gifts, and talents well?
  • How do you feel about your relationship with God?

2. Clear the Clutter

3. Set Purposeful Goals

  • What does God want you to make happen?
  • What does God want you to grow to fulfill his purpose for you?
  • If you could envision your most purposeful year yet, what would it look like?
  • Why do you want to live on purpose?
  • With every goal ask yourself – does this goal help build God’s kingdom or mine?

4. Take Action

  • How can your daily life mirror how God wants you to live?
  • What are 5 core things that need to happen each day for you to live in purpose?

5. Encourage Others

  • How can you use your gifts to encourage others?
  • What legacy are you leaving?

It took me over a month to read and work through this book. I usually finish a book in half that time, but Make it Happen is a different kind of book. This book makes you think, dream, question, and search. OKAY thinking can happen in a week, but GREAT thinking takes a bit longer. I encourage you to spend the time processing through the above questions or the book itself, Make it Happen.
