What's Your Purpose for Living?

Click here to add a short description


What is your Purpose for living?

It's that very moment that we think about why we are existing in this world. Often times I ask myself, why am I here, and what's my purpose. I believe that we all have a purpose to fulfill whether or not we know or choose to find out. At birth often you may have been the reason for your parents to grow in love because of the miracle they experienced when you were conceived and gave birth. You changed their world and made it better. 

Your life's purpose may be achieved by finding out what you can do, to make others' lives better or find a way to contribute to their well-being. This period of time that we think about changing our lives for the better is when we really achieve satisfaction and self-actualization. Have you ever asked yourself, Why do I wake up every morning? Your purpose can guide your decisions, motivate change, good behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning... People sometimes seek meaning through spirituality, life's experiences, or religious beliefs.

Guide to Finding Your Purpose

Be open 

Be open to experiencing new things, new people, or new places. It is stepping outside your comfort zone and willing to risk failure, disappointment, and rejection. Challenge yourself, to be more aggressive in your thoughts to overcome tough times. Avoid negative people that weigh you down, and who tries to make you think negative towards life.

Be Patient with yourself

Discovering your life purpose will come about naturally if you shift your focus from yourself to finding ways of contributing to the happiness and success of others. Our sense of fulfillment will spontaneously arise when we focus on what we can give and how to fulfill our true purpose for living.

Life is short and very unpredictable. We spend our lives waiting for that perfect opportunity when it's our time to shine, waiting for the right time to be happy. You may start by doing these simple steps:

Appreciate what you have. ...

Focus on things that truly matter. ...

Define your own meaning of life, and pursue it. ...

Embrace life's challenges. ...

Find the balance that allows you to be who you are

Love your body enough to take care of it. ...

Limit your time with negative people. ...

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Support Others

Encourage positive actions. Although you should not take control, be positive and enthusiastic when your loved one takes clear steps to pursue their dreams.

Be positive and constructive in any feedback that you give.

Remind them to not give up. Every dreamer will be tempted to give up at some point. This is your moment to be supportive and remind them to persist in their dream. Remind them of all the ways they can succeed in their dreams. Your loved one will likely have a myriad of excuses and doubts to not pursue their dream. Keep reminding them to take action and let them know that you will be there as a supporter every step of the way.

Self Reflection

Reflection “helps you say no to the less important things that simply clutter up life and yes to the more important things that define the purpose in life,” say, Richard Leider and Alan Webber, authors of the new book Life Reimagined: Discovering Your New Life Possibilities. The questions in part one of the Practice Sheet ask you to consider your life from different perspectives to surface what is meaningful to you. Notice the patterns and motifs that emerge in your responses — that’s your inner voice speaking. It may be telling you that you value knowledge, or the spirit of adventure, or connection with others, or helping people be their best.

An aha moment is just a term for when your core values meet a good opportunity to express them. When considering your options, let them run the whole range: Big and small, some that you’d need to stretch for, and others already in your own backyard. Then look for cross-connections with your values. When you let your values guide you toward an opportunity, you’ll be able to define your purpose.
