One’s true purpose carries unique characteristics, the blueprint being a phenomenon which is so individual that you, and only you can carry it out, although there will always be others who can provide input and insight.
But before you outline what your life’s purpose is, realize that there’s no pressure, so it’s important to release any strain which you may be feeling. Connecting with and then living one’s purpose is the journey which usually unfolds in a variety of mysterious ways.
It’s something that can’t or shouldn’t be forced, or something to actively ponder or worry about that you need to find desperately. Live your life to its fullest, and it will become a treasure hunt, an adventure of discovery once you open up your eyes and heart.
What you need is to be open with your life, and then be willing to take whatever steps that comes along the way which inspires you, calls your name. It’s found that once you do that, then there’s no way that you can go wrong, as you’ll find your destiny. So become curious, enjoy the elemental process, marvel at what life throws at you and catch its richness.
Find And Then Seek
It may initially be disappointing and you may somehow begin to think that life has left you behind, that you’re left out in the cold and out of the loop, that you’re not a member of life’s inner circle of accomplishment.
Then suddenly, one day you’ll become amazed at the opportunities which are presented to you, this to help others and yourself live a more fulfilling life. Given what you’ve now chosen to do for a living, you’ll then see the irony in which you’ve once despaired, when you thought you had no purpose.
So irregardless of what your thoughts or your beliefs are regarding this concept, or what your beliefs are about yourself and the values which you place on your life, make sure that you prepare for life to have some type of a surprise in store for you.
Look, and then you shall find. Your purpose doesn’t need to be something that’s drastically big or outstanding. The value of your impact which you have on others and on the world doesn’t need to depend on its scale.
Avoid The Distractions
There’s a lot of distractions which can easily cause you to miss out on what your true purpose in life is. Your duty is to see past these barriers of noise and keep your focus.
Not only are there those daily distractions which includes spending money frivolously, being addicted to food and entertainment, chronically being busy for all the wrong reasons, all which distracts you from thinking and reflecting on what your life’s purpose is.
There are also the distractions which comes in the form of what others expect from you, and the preconceived ideas regarding what a worthwhile purpose or contribution really is. Our society dictates specific ideals about what’s worthy or appropriate, which then confuses and distracts.
How You Can Identify Your True Purpose In Life
Initially, it may not be that obvious and may be something which will gradually emerge over time, and it may take years even decades. You may even have several different layers to what you’re really here for. So listed are some thoughts which may help in connecting you.
Always Do What You Love To Do
Even if you initially don’t get paid for it. Most think that their ultimate career choice or vocation is tied directly to what their purpose is. But realize that how you currently make your living doesn’t necessarily mean or have anything to do with why you’re here. What you do is something because you have to do it, regardless if you like it or not.
What Others Say You’re Good At
Which can be a slippery slope so proceed with caution by going in a certain direction just because there are others who think you should. Although it is important and a good idea to pay attention on how others will compliment you. Is there something that you’re particular good at, that others say you should be doing for a living. Investigate them for all its worth.
If others continuously tells you that they feel more energized after spending time with you, then maybe you’re destined to find a way to earn a living encouraging others, helping them to improve their lives for the better.
Choose What You Want To Do
Decide what you want to experience or ultimately accomplish in your life before it’s too late. So that when you look back, you’ll feel completely satisfied with what you did while having no regrets.
So just sit down and ask yourself, and answer as honestly as you can which may be revealing. It could be that you want to write a book, or become a singer or a dancer.
What is that one thing for you that turns your crank. There’s no panic or need to worry if there’s no answer yet. Just keep asking the question on a daily basis while keeping your eyes and spirit open for clues which will come your way. The answer is bound to show up as it always does without fail.
There Is Something For Everyone
There’s a saying that there are people for everything. What this refers to is the very fact that for everything in the world to function properly, what we need is different people contributing doing different things at different levels.
What we need to do is find and then inhabit that sphere where we’re supposed or destined to be, and then contribute what we’re made of, then what a perfect world that would be, you’ve found your purpose in life.
