There has to be a reason as to why each one of us were put on this Earth. And a part of me says it wasn’t just to work, eat and sleep…
There has to be… There is more to all of this.
What am I here for? What is my purpose?
Maybe you won’t be the person who develops a cure for cancer or the next energy that can be renewed. But believe me when I say, you have a purpose and even small purposes can add up to huge changes in the world.
Just one little thing you do or say can help or harm another person a continent away. Don’t believe that???
I suggest you study the theory of 6 Degrees of Separation. This theory states that each human on Earth is only 6 steps from another human. Someone you know who knows another who knows still another that is related to another who works with another is married to that person you are 6 steps from.
And you may be in Cleveland, Ohio with that person living in Istanbul, Turkey.
We are all instruments in a bigger plan
While I have no intention of getting “religious” here, I do have to say that I cannot hold with the premise this all just happened and we are all just weird occurrences.
Call it God, Allah, or any other deity, we all have a purpose. And I believe it is our responsibility to find that purpose and live the purpose. All for the good of humanity as a whole.
Now, maybe you are a Christian, a Buddhist, Islamic or even an Atheist and you have your own thought pattern based on your beliefs.
But I believe we all will agree there is a purpose for us all. Otherwise, what’s it all about?
So we need to find our purpose… Here are 5 tips to do so.
Find Your Purpose In Life Tip #1: Start Doing
It is called experimentation…
- write a book,
- paint a picture,
- go skydiving,
- climb Everest.
The way to find your purpose is with action. Start doing until you discover your passion.
Find Your Purpose In Life Tip #2: Ask And Answer, “What Would Be A Perfect World According To Me?”
Take a few moments and write the answer to this question down. Now what can you do to help the world get to that point? It doesn’t have to be something huge, just one step towards that perfection you dream of.
If you are doing something you know will bring the world to a higher level of perfection, just think how you will be moved to keep going…
Find Your Purpose In Life Tip #3: Get To Know The People Around You On A Deeper Level
How well do you know your partner, your co-workers or your social friends?
- How many children do they have?
- Where did they grow up?
- How much education do they have?
- What is their spouse’s first name?
As we discover more about the people around us, we will see their purpose. And when we see their purpose, it can help us see our purpose.
Find Your Purpose In Life Tip #4: Look To Your Past
So many of your past experiences, both struggles and successes, define who we are. But sometimes we do not review these enough to see our purpose.
Take a look back and the experiences you have had can tell you what your life purpose is.
Find Your Purpose In Life Tip #5: Read
Reading is a great way to form dreams in your mind. And when we dream, we often find our purpose in the midst of those dreams.
Just as your reading this blog post, I recommend you devout a certain amount of daily time to reading. Read books, magazines and blogs.
As a matter of fact, I wrote a book that tells how my life’s purpose finally came to me. I believe that book can help you too!
