Purpose gives our lives meaning. When you discover your purpose, you can live your life with intention and make choices that serve your objective for why you are here on the planet. Finding your purpose is not always easy. You must embrace life wholeheartedly, explore many different pathways, and allow yourself to grow.
Your purpose is as unique as you are, and will evolve as you move through life. You don’t need anyone’s permission to fulfill your purpose, and no one can tell you what that purpose is. Finding and fulfilling your purpose can be a lifelong endeavor. To discover your purpose, ask yourself what drives you—not what forces you out of bed in the morning, but what makes you glad to be alive. Make a list of activities that you wish you were involved in, or think about a career path that you would love to embark upon. These are the endeavors that can help you fulfill your purpose and bring you the most satisfaction.
Picture yourself working on projects that don’t interest you or fulfill your purpose, yet they satisfy your basic survival needs. Imagine how living this way each day would make you feel. Next, picture yourself devoting your time to projects that spark your imagination, and inspire, excite, and satisfy you. More often than not, these activities are some of the ways that you can fulfill your life’s purpose. Time spent on these endeavors will never feel like a waste. Live your life with purpose, and you will feel significant and capable, because every action you take and each choice you make will have meaning to it.
