The Purpose of Your Life - Your Life Mission

Updated on June 4, 2011

How To Find Your True Life's Passion and Purpose

In order to awaken your true life’s purpose you need to be ready to accept ‘change’. Change may come in the form of a change in consciousness, a change in belief-sets and/or thought-patterns, a distinct career change, a change in lifestyle choices.

Most of us have asked the question in one way or another, “What should I be doing with my life? What’s my purpose?”

This is not an easy question ....

To find your answers:

· Listen to your intuition

Still your thinking, analytical mind. Listen.

Everyone has an inner-voice that acts as our internal radar system and guide. We just have to listen to it and trust it in order to be led by it successfully.

Feelings and messages about our purpose and passion often come as a gnawing thought or a reminder of what sparks your interests and what is important to you. Sometimes some sort of serendipitous situation or event will take place in order to jolt your hidden personal passions and purpose.

Ask yourself: ‘What makes me happy?’ - and answer honestly.

Take the opportunity to really analyse your happiness.

What brings you true Joy? Write a list ... you may see a trend develop.

What is stopping you from pursuing your joys and turning them into a life purpose or mission?

If you are spending a great deal of your time doing menial tasks, working at a job you loathe or living in a way that is unfulfilling for you, recognise and acknowledge this – then be ready for change.

Think about what frustrates you, what excites you, what motivates you, what disinterests you. Take conscious note of your reactions as these may indicate where your true purpose lies.

Ask yourself what you love to do, what you love about yourself, what you love about your life.

Ask yourself what is really important to you? What ‘causes’ do you lean towards? What and/or who inspires you?

How could you make a positive difference to the world for yourself and others? When we live our passions and life purposes we are fulfilled, satisfied and happy. This positive vibration spreads and reverberates to every corner of your life and serves as an example for others to follow.

Trust yourself to make the right choices for YOU. Listen to your inner-voice – then trust it.

Sometimes your inner voice may lead you along a path that could bring you great personal joy and fulfillment, but may seem a little unorthodox, unsuited or inappropriate to family, friends or peers in their view and judgement. Sometimes finding and living your purpose could mean going against the wishes or advice of others, particularly that of close friends and family. Be true to yourself regardless. Walk your own path.

Make your decisions based upon your own personal truths - no one else’s. Have faith and trust in your dreams and follow their lead.

Patience is an important key. Finding your life’s purpose may take time to discover and nurture. Trust that everything happens in divine right timing.

If you are feeling unfulfilled and know there is ‘more to life’ out there for you, take the time, patience and commitment to find your true life purpose. Once you find your passion and begin to live your purpose, it will be well worth it for you for the rest of your life.

"When a man is willing and eager, the gods join in."
- Aeschylus

      Wow, I wanted to read this article twice! That never happens hah! Very true and exactly what I have been doing as of late.

      To Shervin, I usually google " Angelic number ___" and usually the first link I click on. Its so exciting to go through a spiritual growth/change. The key is definitely to be understamding of situations because good or bad, everything is a learning experience. You just need to look deeper and figure out what that situation may mean for you.

      I really like this reading.

      It was as if it was personally selected for me to come upon and read. It is what I call a "God" deal. Every question that we were to ask and answer for ourselves was all the questions I have been praying for a sign to help. Looks like I found a path.

      The problem I am having is I have no answers to what makes me happy, brings me joy, excites, motivates, love to do. I know I love to be alone in a clean environment, I know I love the sunshine and clean and beautiful environments. What is important to me? This is subjective because we live in a world where people have a right to be who and what they are regardless of how they affect the environment and others. What is important to be seem to always be affected by others so I cannot make anything important to me that that which I have some semblance of control over. I am finding that because my entire life is impacted by people in some way, there is not much I have control of other than my personal body and t

      Thank you. This page popped up synchronistically along with lots of 3s and 7s of late (By George, she's got it...yay!!!!) to further confirm what I know in my soul. Ah I have just seen that you are in Vic, Joanne. I am overseas at present yet also live sometimes in Melbourne. Perhaps one day we shall meet. I think so. *hugs*

      There is no difference ... they are just different terms.

      Hi and thanks for this. Of course it’s important to know what motivates us, to know what brings us joy and so one, but why - when making change to go nearest of our inner voice - visualizing with good emotions the result expected do NOT happens, why, in spite of our effort, some time hard work, our wishes do not come a reality ?

      We are educated to accept only one side of the light. But life and whole universe works with light and darkness. Both sides coexist in a whole ONE. So, we must be aware first then accept and LOVE as well our inner part who do not want, do not like, reject, that part who is frightened, who is sad… etc, because God creates the light & the dark, he LOVES everything, then we must learn to LOVE every thing in us and stop ignore our darkness. It will be nice to bring new enlightenment today and stop being in the duality. Isn’t it ?

      I love this. This a reminder of what I promised myself and was getting frustrated because it wasn't happening fast enough. Thanks for reminding me.
