“You keep waiting for the moral of your life to become obvious, but it never does. Work, work, work: No moral. No plot. No eureka! Just production schedules and days. You might as well be living inside a photocopier. Your lives are all they’re ever going to be.”
How do you discover your real purpose in life? I am not talking about your job, your daily responsibilities, or even your long-term goals. I mean the real reason why you are here at all.
I really feel that we are all blessed with unique gifts. To use our gifts can contribute to a cause greater than ourselves.
What are yours?
What makes you smile? (activities, people, events, hobbies, projects)
What activities make you lose track of time?
What makes you feel great about yourself?
Who inspires you most? (anyone you know or do not know. Family, friends, authors, artists, leaders.) Which qualities inspire you, in each person?
Imagine you are now 90 years old, sitting on a rocking chair outside on your porch; you can feel the spring breeze gently in your face. You are blissful and content, and are pleased with the wonderful life you have been blessed with. Looking back at your life and all that you have achieved and acquired, all the relationships you have developed; what matters to you most?
When you find your own unique answers you can take an important step towards uncovering your life’s purpose. This can give you important feedback about the path you want to be on in relation to a deeper life purpose.
When you do find a pull towards some purpose, activity or goal that you feel reflects your inner self, then pursue it fully and vigorously, and with great intent. You must find your passion in life to truly live to your potential.
“Every job from the heart is, ultimately, of equal value. The nurse injects the syringe; the writer slides the pen; the farmer plows the dirt; the comedian draws the laughter. Monetary income is the perfect deceiver of a man’s true worth.”
