Each one of us is unique and have different skills and a set of expertise. All you have to do is: know and understand yourself more to discover those.
Have you discovered what is the impact and difference you want to make to your life and also to the world? What motivates you? What you are hungry for?
When people feel like they have no sense of direction, no purpose in their life, it is because they don’t know what is important to them. They don’t know what their values are. And when you don’t know what your values are, then you’re taking on other people’s values and living other people’s priorities instead of your own.
And therefore you have unhealthy relationships, unsuccessful life, a sense of being incomplete, or having misery in your life.
Your purpose of life drives you, motivates you and encourages you to keep going every time you fail. It pushes you to your edges every time.
And why most people give up is because they do not have a big enough why?, a big enough purpose.
Discovering one’s “purpose” in life boils down to finding the things that are a desire of a larger part of you. It is not about some achievement, but merely spending your time doing that which you love to do.
To determine your purpose, ask yourself: What is your legacy going to be? What are the stories people will tell when you’re gone? How do you want people to remember you? How can you work towards that today?
Now think of the feeling: How do you feel? Do you feel at peace? Do you feel a sense of contentment? Does the result make you happy?
And again, it has to come from your heart’s desire. It cannot be something to impress people. You should have something you can enjoy fantasizing and dreaming about. You should have a clear enough ‘why?’ Know why did I set that end goal? Why is that end goal important to you?
Once you have solid answers to these questions, you will then be ready to articulate your purpose of life.
The purpose could be anything from fulfilling a personal passion project, to growing your business, to becoming an authority figure in your field, to extending your network or even telling a good story. Whatever it is, it has to be something beyond making money. If the primary motivator is to make money or something you want to do, that is not a purpose that is a short-term goal or list of to do’s. You need stronger motivators. Those weak motivators will not discipline and drive you will need.
Your purpose must be much larger enough to serve as your foundation.
So think about it – and let me know what it is your purpose?
