Do You Know Your Life Purpose?
Why Bother Knowing Life Purpose?
We bother about knowing our Life purpose because it is important for us to have a plan for where we want to go.
If you understand your lifes purpose then it will give you a meaningful compass in which you have direction and guide in your life.
If you’re looking to move into a new path of your life, knowing your purpose in life can help you.
If you have a nagging feeling that there is something more in your life, then discovering life purpose can bring into a whole new level of passion and joy to your life. Finding your life purpose can help you find out why you love those things that you love and also what you can do to accomplish or excel in the direction you want to go.
If you want to make changes in your life then its important to remember that your life purpose is not really about what you do but it revolves around who you are when you do it.
It is not about the doing…It is about the being.
It is the you that appears in everything you accomplish or do in life.
Finding your life purpose is not easy and it is a task that I challenge my students with each year.
We discuss clues that life gives us and no matter where we are in life now, our hobbies, our daily activities and our part-time jobs will all give us clues as to our life purpose.
If you find this difficult to see the clues then you can start by asking questions about what you like to do.
Many people don’t have any idea about what they love to do. Without finding what you want to do you will never
find your life purpose.
Knowing what you love to do can serve as your steering wheel of your life. If you don’t know what you love to do,
you won’t have any direction to your life. But, if you have an idea on your passion, it will be much easier for you to
know your life purpose. Also, all your burdens and uncertainties in life will be removed.
why do students and also many others experience some difficulties finding out what they love to do?
It is quite simple really .. they have never really asked themselves about what they love to do.
Being honest is also a key to find out what you love to do.
One way to find out what we love to do is to
List Down Our Skills-
Listing your skills or interests can also a great help. Through these, you can easily concentrate on what you love to do.
However, make sure to list down the true information about you. Skills and interests are
important because skills will help you identify your strengths.
Another idea is to find out What Do Other People Think You’re Good At?
I always ask the students to pick out 2 people in their team and write down three skills each of them have.
The most common things that the majority of people think about what you’re good at is positive.
Sometimes, it is also good to be criticized by other people.
The reason behind it is that you are not always strong and good at something. There will always times that you
might fail on the things you regularly do. You have to take accept that there is no perfect person. That is why it is
also good to experience failures as these can also give you understanding or knowledge about what you want to
achieve in your life.
Your strengths are what make you stronger. Though you also have weaknesses, your strengths can be the key to
get good comments or reactions from other people. If you always want to get positive feedbacks from other people,
do the things you love and work from your heart.
You can always fake your feelings, but your output or performance can tell something that will reflect on you.
So, if you don’t want to fail in searching for your life purpose, you should do the things you love.
