Have you ever asked yourself what your purpose in life was? If so, what was the answer?


A friend posted an article about this. Basically the article said this was THE most important question to ask. And of course, the answer changes over time. What is the answer for you right now?

    muhammad abdullah javed,

    Wow, thanks for sharing - you shared a lot!

    I've read this and believe this.

    Man's purpose is to be of maximum service to his/her God and his/her fellow human beings.

    What more could one offer in a life?

    Great stuff!

    Hi Paul,

    Sometimes the most obvious is the thing to look at.

    At 63, still trying to figure out what I'm really good at!

    Not an easy question to answer with a lot of confidence.

    Appreciate you taking the time to answer.

    Cheers

    Ok, then.

    I guess you never asked that question of yourself.

    Cheers.

    Thanks Timothy,

    You summed it up well - Identify who we are, how can we benefit others.

    So much is wasted words in many conversations - when the answer is usually, relatively simple. What am I good at or what do I love to do?

    Great answer,

    Thx.

    John Connor,

    I kind of agree.

    Better than taking up air in the form of a blob.

    Any idea of what that "to do" is?

    I've heard artist say they were born to be artists.

    Golfers born to play the game - their "passion"

    Your thoughts?

    Cheers
