How to find your life purpose
Do you remember being a child and everything around you had a magic to it? As a child, we didn’t take life for granted. The way an airplane took off, the way the moon looked, even something as simple as a bird flying by seemed to be magical.
Life is Magical
The truth is, life is magical, we have just adopted though patterns and routines that take the magic out of life. Have you ever given thanks for the heart that beats without you telling it to? Or for the sun which allows all life on our planet earth to be? Life truly is magical and almost everything in it is but we become conditioned to take life for granted and we lose our youthful energy.
If you ask a child “What do you want to be when you grow up”, you will hear answers like, an actor, a hockey player, president, or a vet. As children grow up into adults, they adopt limiting beliefs and allow society to dictate how successful they can be. When I was a child I wanted to be a motivational speaker like Tony Robbins and through this website, I am on my path to do that. How many times do you hear a child say they want to be a vet for example and allow society to kill their ambitions and settle for less than they can be? It happens to 75-80% of the population.
Most individuals live life in a walking daze and are so consumed by routines that they may as well be a zombie from the walking dead. Wake up, go to work, watch 5 hours of tv, go to sleep, repeat. This doesn’t make for a life of fulfillment. Studies show that 75% of individuals dread going to work and “hate” their job. The fact of the matter is, all of the complaining in the world won’t change your circumstances. The only way to change your current reality is to set goals, align with your purpose in life and take immediate and consistent action. ACTION is the key.
Identify your Purpose
To expand on this, you need to identify your purpose in life and let that drive you. What is it, that to the core gives you a sense of satisfaction and contribution? This is your calling and this is what should fuel you in life. If you don’t wake up in the morning with a zeal to tackle the day ahead, you simply don’t have a clear purpose defined.
You hear the cliche phrase “follow your heart” so often but few people truly understand the meaning of this. You’re a unique individual with your own unique set of skills and strengths that you have to offer the world. It is your duty to yourself to identify these skills and pursue a life of passion and purpose.
You and only you truly know and can identify what your purpose is. In the coming days make it your goal to get a clear picture of what your purpose in life is. Feel free to comment or engage us via social media if you would like assistance with this.
To get you started, here are some questions to assist in identifying your life purpose:
-What activities make you lose track of time?
-What makes you feel great about yourself?
-How are you going to leave your mark on the world?
-What are you naturally good at?
-GUN TO YOUR HEAD, IF YOU HAD TO LEAVE THE HOUSE ALL DAY, EVERY DAY, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
-IF YOU KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO DIE ONE YEAR FROM TODAY, WHAT WOULD YOU DO AND HOW WOULD YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED?
Please take some time to ponder these questions and truly gain some clarity as to what your unique purpose for being on this earth is. Each and every one of us has a purpose and it’s our duty to discover it and live in accordance with it.
When you live in accordance with your purpose in life, the magic of life returns and you live a life of happiness and fulfillment. When we live like robots and allow society to dictate what we should do, we harbor feelings of resentment and never truly feel a sense of purpose in life.
I will discuss in further detail how to put your purpose into action once identifying it but for now, take the first step with me and get clear on what your purpose is.
