Living a Life of Purpose
When we feed our minds with the world’s noise, it becomes easy to doubt ourselves. When we struggle with life’s challenges, we question our purpose in life. We get caught up in the spin around us…our career, family, health, school, finances, relationships, and hope. Hope that something in life will work out, and it will all be better. People that hope without action tend to sit and wait for change to come to them – and that creates lost time away from living a life of purpose.
Perhaps it’s best to focus on the description of your life, how it looks, feels and exists…your dream. When you dream, you are an active participant, yet the movement is still necessary to get from here to there.
Life – The Big Question
That’s the eternal question that’s flowed from each living person on earth. What’s the purpose of life? Sometimes discovering the meaning of something is best found by an awareness of what something is NOT. Life is not about causing the most harm possible, but rather, enjoying people and situations and blessings, and love and BEING a blessing to others. We attract kind people by being kind to others.
Some people will say the purpose of life is attaining a particular position or some other goal. While It’s important to stay focused on the finish line, always marching in a direction without enjoying the walk will leave a person feeling empty when they get there. Allow yourself to enjoy the pleasure of the journey.
Putting it to Action
It’s all about direction. There’s often a big difference between the dream life you want and the real life you live. Let’s clarify that dream a bit more. Find a quiet place and imagine for a moment that you now have all the time, money, or resources at your disposal to do anything you want.
- What would you do to make the world a better place?
- What is it that gives you a deep yearning within you?
- Who would you help?
- How would they benefit?
- What could they now do to make the world a better place?
- In your mind’s eye, how does that make you feel?
When you allow yourself to imagine being a change-agent and feel a sense of excitement, then you’re drawing closer to finding your purpose.
