This is a really interesting question and it can be taken so many ways (ie: career; philosophically; personal improvement; etc.)
Well, for my career I hope even one tiny little thing that I write can change someone's life even if I'm not considered a successful writer.
Philosophically; I hope to one day completely understand myself and why I do the things I do. A clarity I think I will only achieve on my deathbed.
As for personal improvement; I hope to always treat myself well-something I don't do now, thought not for lack of trying-and with respect by upholding my own personal code of honor to myself.
I really enjoyed answering this question. It took a lot of introspection while we normally-as writers-look out into the world for inspiration.
As King Solomon said: Eat Drink and Be Merry. Nothing else. But, I prefer to eat with family and knowing that I help others feed themselves, to drink with family and to help others have clean drinking water, and to be merry with family and in some way facilitate the happiness of others. The others being an extension of my family - the human and not so human race;)
Maybe to heal through poetry.. and to spend as much money as possible in vintage boutiques..
To be God loving and follow his orders because the life is test from God.
I would have liked the Nobel Prize in Theoretical Physics but will have to settle for some lesser honour I guess.
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar.
To entertain people with my writing. That or serve as an example to others of what not to become. We'll see which eventually.
For us it is to leave be happy and go through our lives face problems and progress until the end but the only logical purpose for us being here is there is no purpose we are a mistake or something if there were a being mighty enough to create of for something why wouldnt he just create that thing
to me the purpose of my life is to find who i am, to walk with God and live the life to its fullest enjoying all the great things he has made. bring my unique contribution to the world, and live at peace with all men.
The purpose of this precious human life is to awaken the sleeping immortal, within. This is the child of God. By awakening, we once again walk with God, and live with humble confidence.
Once we've achieved this? These Homo sapiens bodies are no longer of any use to us, like what it said in Genesis 6:3. I suppose then, we'll merely do some creating, like our Father in heaven.
I believe the only purpose of life is self-definition.
Life give you opportunities to make choices that will define you.
Everybody whether your are rich, poor, handicap, workers, politicians, and others have to make choices.
Life is full is decisions. They include whether to kill, to flee, to fight, to surrender, to deceive, to give up, to persevere and so on.
Your life will tell who you really are.
The pursuit of happiness. Pure and simple, unselfish happiness, to share and to spread around.
I think my purpose in life is to better serve others, if its strangers or my own family.
This is actually something that's been on my mind for awhile now. I often find myself in depressing moods pondering my existence and wondering what my purpose in life is. My best guess, or at least the one i hope becomes true, is that I'M here to become a writer and change people's perspective of the world or themselves.
well to be true, i just turned 14 and my big goal in life is making the most of it. you should not just be laying around on the floor saying you did nothing today, cause tomorrow could be another story. you only have a one life so make it a good one.
most of us will get to the end and not even be able to answer, "what WAS your perpose in life?",... we can wander in the dark for the answer we might say about ourselves.. but the truth lies in what others might say about us in answer to this question....
wow that was deep, even for a shallow mind such as mine,.. i think i'll have drink and drown a brain cell before that happens again.
The purpose of life is simply to live it. We all have a set time that we can't see, so we should make the most of what we have while we have it.
When tomorrow is a maybe, to me the purpose to life is doing what makes you happy while you have the chance. Maybe that's love, maybe that's money; so long as it doesn't come at the expense of others I don't think there is really a wrong answer.
Having fun, being healthy, and taking care of my children. I think that's pretty much it!
To share my information and experience that might help people build a better future. Thelp where help is needed and to fight for equal rights.
If one were to peruse how I spend most of my waking hours, they would conclude that my purpose in life is to talk to women on facebook, drink beer, and produce hubs.
To dance and sing and play the blues,
To think and write and follow my muse;
To laugh and cry, carry on and make do,
To find the Love that makes life new.
To be happy with your life and changing other peoples lives so they are happy with their life.
I like to think my existence is to create and inspire. You know, have an impact/significance on another life (or lives, I'm rather ambitious).
And then, when the expectations I'm given feel so overbearing and I lose track of what I want, I ask myself this:
Wouldn't it be HILARIOUS if God was an existentialist?
Come on, you don't have to believe in a god, or the Christian god to think that's funny.
And, it might just be me, but everything just stops spinning and the world seems funnier than it was and I can go on living with a smile on my face. I'm my own motivational speaker.
to find out what my personal talents are, and develop them into a business. To develop the talents of other people and create future businesses.
I am a people person and i like to help when possible and give services.
To have the most craziest, beautiful life as possible. Dancing till Dawn, reasearch, love.
The Purpose of Life is first to Love and Believe in God and follow His Commandments, Love the Lord with all Your Heart , All Your Soul, All Your Mind and All Your Strength and Love Your Neighbors the Same Way...this is the purpose of all human life..Yes Lord You will make it happen..amen..
I think I was put hear by God with this sorry excuse of a life in order to use my experience to help others.
To be happy and make others happy and we will have a little heaven down here. Maybe also to win a little lottery somewhere along the way.
To become one with ones self and love all others. And to make bank of course
The purpose in my life is the same purpose in everyone's life. It goes along with "What is the meaning of life". I realize that there more that will disagree than will agree with me but that is just the way things are. I believe the purpose of life is to serve Jesus Christ with all our hearts, mind and soul. To do His bidding as He instructs. Stand for and with Him and your right on tract.
To be the best possible me I can be without losing myself along the way.
to witness the discovery of other life forms other than the ones found on earth...
everyone has different purposes in life and they live it different.
Scientifically speaking, the purpose of life is to procreate and ensure your offspring's survival so that another generation can live and do the same.
Philosophically however, the question becomes much more complicated. I guess its questionable whether there IS a purpose in life.
My purpose? To cultivate my personal relationships with friends & family!
my purpoes in life is to answer any question ask of me. PLEASE SEE MY HUB PAGE !
i don't think I have found my true purpose. Always trying to create a better me. I am sure though that my purpose does involve helping other people.
Well i think one's purpose should be to make own life beautiful and live with peace.
to be honest, i think it's to help the people around me
sounds sad saying, bt it means soemthing to me
To help people who haven't had the opportunities and blessings that I have had.

Do you believe that the majority of people are not living authentic lives but prescribed lives whichexplains why they are unhappy most of the time? Only a few people are living life the way they want and have jobs/careers that they enjoy doing. Most people live their lives...
