Find Your Purpose in Life!
Finding your passion to live a purposeful life is at times difficult. To understand how to find your purpose in life, then you need to be aware that your purpose is far greater than just carrying out a regular job, or doing something that you have no interest in. You’re much more valuable than that, and the world needs you to share it.
In the journey of discovering your passion, you need to expand your knowledge on self-awareness. Why? If you know what makes you happy, what gets your heart beating a little harder, and the skills that you possess, then this is a major step towards discovering your purpose in life. Many times, people convince themselves that they are foolish for turning their passion into their life purpose.
I don’t find it foolish; I find it to be courageous.
Start this discovery by writing down your current ambitions, your anger, frustrations, disappointments and desires; the good and the bad. The aim of this is to help you understand who and what you are as a person — what makes you tick? When you understand yourself then you will be able to start finding your purpose, as you will know your strengths, weaknesses, desires, and capabilities.
Practice your self-awareness by writing down every thought that crosses your mind; this will take your understanding to a higher level and allow you to discover more about yourself. The goal during this journey of self-discovery is to be open and honest so you become more self-aware, which potentially will lead to finding your purpose and passion in life.
Days usually begin and end in your bed. This may be a good place to start bringing a pen and a pad to write down your thoughts and to analyze yourself throughout the day.
Start now, start today
Didn’t think you could ever be a writer? A dancer? A singer? A scientist?
When you identify what it is your heart desires, what really makes you tick, then you must start exercising that skill today. Little by little, you will learn what it is you’re passionate about. This passion is your purpose. Harness it. Don’t let it slip away.
Applying these practices to discover your purpose and passion will free your mind, body, and soul. Your purpose in life lies inside you: all you have to do is discover it. Ask yourself questions, provide the answers, and eventually you will start to realize that you were born for that one purpose.
