your life's purpose

Updated on December 4, 2014

WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE?

Are you looking at what others have done and are now thinking, ‘how in the world is she earning that much?’. Or do you hate what you do for a living, you come back home always tired and grumpy. Do you dread going to work, not only on Mondays, but on each and every day? Well, my dear, you are not living up to your potential. No, scratch that. Your potential does have jurisdiction in that area that you are working in.

It’s funny that if you are asked particular details about a certain celebrity, you know their skill sets, their hobbies, the state of their finances, their baby mammas and irrelevant things. Why is it that you find time to know someone else’s’ life. You should be too busy figuring your life and purpose out, analyzing your potential skills and polishing them up. You should be tuning your mind and your body to your core.

I believe that having a purpose in life should not be for self-preservation only. I believe having a purpose means that through it, you give something back to society. Whether it is empowering women, giving back to the less fortunate, correcting immorality or simply just bringing a smile to someone’s face, it should give back to the society.

There is an old trick to finding your motivation. First and foremost, when you recognize your purpose, you should have peace about it in your heart. You might be a bit shaken down, but deep down, you should know that that is what you were meant to be. Take a blank piece of paper. Clear your mind. Take deep breaths and forget what it is people say that has the most income, or what it is your peers are doing. Ask yourself what it is you would like to do if you had all the time and resources in this world. Write the answers down. Write down every single answer. It may seem silly, but you will recap on that later. When you feel that you have exhausted everything that comes to mind, go through that list again. Normally, you heart will be led in a particular direction. You will find that some answers are very close to each other.

Next, list down your talents, or whatever it is you think your talent is. What makes you tick in this world what is it that you do to escape the day-to-day stresses. What is it that makes you feel absolutely free and that you belong? Well, if you do not have a constructive way of blowing off steam, I suggest that you start looking for one. You really need it in this life.

Is there a pattern forming yet? If there is, start off with what you have to make thing happen in your first list. What is it you think you can accomplish right now on it? Then, what are you waiting for? If there is no pattern that forms, don’t worry. Most things in your life are not black and white anyway, just shades of gray. Start off with the skill set you have, and do something on your list as well. Chances are, through that journey of self-discovery, you will find your purpose. And you will not regret a bit of it. After all, you are doing what you wanted to do in the first place. AND YOU SHALL NOT STUMBLE IN YOUR WALK IF YOU WALK IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

You are not in this world by chance.

Do you have that personal relationship? How well do you know your skills, what it is that makes you tick? Well, discover how to recognize your purpose in life.
