I believe everyone on this earth has a purpose, and it's our job to figure out what that is. I also believe that most of us at least have an idea what it is but have ignored it, whether it's due to inadequacy, pleasing parents etc. Look back at the course of your life right up until to this point in time and see if you can spot a theme.You see, our purpose leaves clues that reveal themselves to us when we pay attention. Personally, my theme has always been creative. I really took great interest in drawing from an early age and never really stopped but it did branch out into other creative fields such as film, poetry, and photography.
How to find your purpose:
In order to find your life purpose, you're going to need to discover your authentic self. This is going to show how well you know yourself. People that are naturally reflective, find themselves much earlier than those that aren't (where are my introverts at? *waves* lol) As much as you may find this tedious it's important you do the inner work. Here are some questions you can ask yourself:
- What are you passionate about?
- What comes naturally to you?
- What does everyone say you're good at?
- What do you love enough to do for free?
These questions will have you on the right path to really getting to know yourself. Make a note of your findings and see how you can incorporate this into a job to provide value to society. Be sure to remain open and try as many things as possible, that's a good way to find out your likes and dislikes
Why is it important to live out life purpose?
It's important we live out our true purpose because overall it gives us: a true sense of self, emotional fulfillment, and clarity.
