Do you know what your purpose in life is? Do you want to find out?
Most people are guided by that mysterious thing in our lives called "purpose." If things are going well, it's because it's supposed to be that way. If things are not going well, it's because it's a lesson we are supposed to learn, one that will get us closer to our purpose someday. We all want a purpose, yet it seems like this all-important unobtainable thing. Yet, how can we find it?
First, accept that it may be time to find your purpose in life. It may take trial and error before you get it right. Mistakes are a great way to uncover your purpose because you have the opportunity to find out what you like and don't like. After many "don't likes" and "why do I keep doing the same things over an over again" comes a time of personal freedom and peace. Once you get what's not working out of the way, you can make room for the good stuff.
Second, believe that you will know when you find it. How will you know? You will feel it in the pit of your stomach. It's something that feels so right that you can't imagine doing anything else. And, you will feel "high" when you're doing it. This "high" feeling may feel a bit strange, and it may even frighten you. Don't be afraid, it's your higher power talking to you, letting you know that you are doing the right thing.
Lastly, you know you've found your purpose in life when it doesn't revolve around you. It's not the bigger house or the shiny new car that will make you happy. These are just goals, but they are not a substitute for your purpose in life. Your purpose in life will bring you happiness and true happiness comes from contributing to other people's lives and making a difference for someone else. We were put on this earth to help others, and that is the greatest gift of all!
So, how do you create your purpose? Follow these easy steps:
