What do You Really Want in Life

Updated on November 14, 2007

What do you really want in life?

Most people never discover what they really want in life until it's time to die - and that's a shame.

Most people waste the best years of their lives sitting in fromt of the TV or trudging off to a J.O.B. that they dispise. An author described humanity by saying, "Most people die at twenty and are buried at eighty." Are you one of the living zombies?

What do you really want in life?

Most people don't know how to answer that question. Too many people have no goals for their life beyond the weekends party or what's on "Thursday night." They waunder through life without making a decision, hardly giving any thought about what they want in life. People without definite goals are letting time pass them by. Are you one of these people? I believe that if you are reading this you are doing something productive with your time.

Let's look at some of the ways that you can discover your life's purpose.

To discover what you want in life,try looking deep into your heart. Oftentimes, people are ruled by logic. People live by what they think they should be or by what others like them to be. The discovery process is the perfect time to listen to your heart. What your heart desires comes from the whispers of your authentic self. Your authentic self is the real you.

Listen to your heart to be able to listen to your authentic self. What your heart says usually feels right. What your heart desires is what you usually love to do and this represents your passion. Anything done with passion is like play and the task is accomplished without hesitation. You pour out your very best and feel no pressure or resistance.

When you are pursuing your passion setbacks, difficulties, and obstacles will not deter you from pursuing your goals. Naturally, there may be barriers but your heart's desire will find ways to overcome these barriers so that you may ultimately get what you want in life. Remember this: the universe supports people who are pursuing their passion and those who are pursuing their destiny.

This does not mean that you don't use your head. People are born with both the mind and heart. Your duty is to live your best life and be in harmony with both your mind and heart. The poet Rumi wisely said, "Live completely in the head and you cannot feel the breath and rhythm of life. Live completely in the heart and you may find yourself acting like a love-struck fool with poor judgment and discipline. It's all a fine balance - the head and heart must forge a lifetime partnership if one wants to live a beautiful life."
