Life purpose is basically the reason why you are here on earth. Many are fortunate to find or define their purpose earlier in the journey of life whilst some are still struggling to work out their why. Do you have a why in your life? Can you define your purpose? Your life purpose is a reason that keeps you motivated and helps you to get out of bed each morning. If you are yet to define your purpose, you may often feel as though you are just plodding along the path of life. All you do is go through the motions of living without having anything to look forward to.
“When you see what you’re here for, the world begins to mirror your purpose in a magical way. It’s almost as if you suddenly find yourself on a stage in a play that was written expressly for you.” —Betty Sue Flowers
If you don’t have a purpose in your life then it is definitely time to discover what yours is. Most likely you have a dream or a goal that you would love to pursue, but for some reason you don’t.
For anyone that is attempting to achieve something or reach a goal it is much easier to do so if you have a reason for it; that reason is often driven by your purpose. This way of thinking is can be associated with people who are trying to lose weight. Nothing seems to work for them until they uncover the true reason for why they want to lose weight.
Your purpose can be quite simple and it could be doing certain things in order to become healthier. Or maybe your purpose is to start an online business so you can retire your partner from their job.
Your Life Purpose can be your source of income
Your purpose, if pursued can become your main source of income. There are countless numbers of people who are earning a living by simply living their purpose. This is when working for a living isn’t really working but having fun, impacting others and earning hugely! Your purpose therefore is often associated around well-being, health, family, and financial goals. After all without money you can’t pay the bills or buy food to feed your family.
One thing to bear in mind, as well, is that your purpose can grow as you grow. As your life changes so do the things you need and the things that truly matters to you, this can give you a bigger and clearer purpose in life.
Many people will turn to religion in order to uncover their purpose whilst some can just sit themselves in a quite area and work it out and some will need the help of a coach or mentor. Whichever process you choose to help you find your purpose, one thing I am confident about is that once you find it, you will know you have found your purpose. No two people will ever share the same purpose. You may have the same goal as someone else. But you will both have different reasons for attaining them.
The best way to discover your life purpose is to be honest with yourself. This requires letting all your skeletons out of your closet. Sit down in a quiet place and truly think about what it is you want out of life.
This is not always an easy process and even when you do understand what your life purpose is. You may not know how to achieve it at first. Just remember to keep an open mind and start working in a small way each day to achieve your purpose.
Finding your life purpose is an ideal way to grow as a person, an opportunity to learn to be bigger a person than you are now. As you begin to live your purpose you’ll also begin to appreciate the fact that the life you have been given is a gift; a gift to be treasured and the make the most without wasting a second of it! Your life purpose allows you to make impact in others life whilst enjoying a great fulfillment as you make the lives of others a little better.
