Do you sometimes feel like you live your life just to fulfil all righteousness by just going through the motions? One day deplete into the next and before you know it, years had passed and you wonder where the time went. Having passion and living your life on purpose is what can help you get out of your routine and start enjoying a blissful lifestyle. Maybe you work hard right now and earning comfortably, my question is, are you excited and fulfilled?
You can indeed work and live your life on purpose, and making impact!
If you want to live a more passionate life and create a life that fulfills you, use the strategies below:
Determine what is most important to you.
Ask yourself some questions; what do you find most fulfilling? …helping others or personal accomplishment? Does music move your soul? Do you enjoy competing? What brings you the most joy and happiness? Your passion in life is hidden in there somewhere. Can you find it?
While long-term goals can be quite profound, it is very crucial that you enjoy yourself in the short-term, too. Therefore, think about the present time, what is it that you could do right now that sounds exciting to you? Perhaps you’ve always wanted to try skydiving or visit New York? Have you always wanted to visit your local theater? Do it now!
Meaningful pursuits can sometimes entail more time, money and energy. So, what is it that you want to do over the next 10+ years? If you could achieve one thing before the end of your life, what would it be? What is that one thing you’ve always wanted to do? Maybe your childhood dream? What can you do today to make that thing a reality one day?
If you have free time, how do you like to spend it?
If you have some spare time in your hands, how would you choose to spend it? Are you building a doll house in your garage or writing a short story for publication? Your life purpose might be hidden in your current hobbies but on a larger scale. Think about your current hobbies, why do you enjoy spending time on your hobbies?
What would you like to do when you were retire?
What would your perfect day be if you had all the resources and unlimited time each day? How would you choose to spend your time?
Move out of your comfort zone.
The most meaningful activities are often outside of our comfort zone. To live a life of purpose, you have to move out of your comfort zone. Often times, we are limited by our fear of failure or a fear of the unknown. However, unless you take some risk, you’ll risk living an unfulfilled life. Be brave, step out and explore all your opportunities.
Make a conscious decision to find meaning in your life.
While it is easy to set a goal to lose 25 pounds, you can also set yourself a goal to find true meaning to your life, your life purpose. Give yourself 30 days and spend a few minutes each morning and night on the task. Close your eyes, ask the creator and listen for the answer. Keep a running list and evaluate it at the end of the month.
Switch off the TV.
When you switch on the TV these day, all you hear from the news are nothing but bad and depressing news. It is difficult to live a meaningful life full of passion if you’re spending time watching and listening to things that do not necessarily improve your life. So, switch off the TV and find something more productive to do.
Do something new.
Doing the same thing day-in-day-out makes you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, and the best way to shake up your thinking is to try something new. Take a dance or swimming lesson or book a day at the theatre with a friend. Experiencing something new every now and then will help make your days unique.
The search for the meaning of life is not new or unique to you. The fact is that there is no universal answer, however, it is possible for you to find the true meaning in your own life. Stop living your life aimlessly without purpose, strive to live your life on purpose. Set yourself a few goals and live through life outside your comfort zone. Find your passion and life purpose and then build your life around them.
