Everyone has a purpose, there is a contribution you are meant to give to your generation. Stop copying people; stop merely existing, live out your purpose. Find yourself, find your purpose and excel in it. It is only in finding and pursuing ayour purpose that you will find true fulfillment in life. If you want to be fulfilled, happy, content, and experience inner peace and ultimate fulfillment, it’s critical that you learn how to find your passion and life purpose. Without a life purpose as the compass to guide you, your goals and action plans may not ultimately fulfill you.
Find your purpose by paying keen attention to the following:
1. "What you love to do even without pay'
Is there something you enjoy doing and you would do even if not paid for it? And you end up charging people for you to do it just because you have needs and must earn a living? What is your consuming passion? What is that thing that you can do 24/7 and even if they don't pay you on that, you still derive fulfillment? I dare you to find your passion, for there your purpose.
2. "What angers you to action"
Is there something happening in society that makes you mad and inspires you to change it? Do you hate seeing broken marriages, or hurting orphans, or illiteracy in people, or the environment being destroyed? There lies your purpose
3. "What do people say you are good at?"
Is there something you do so effortlessly and naturally yet people marvel at it? Something many people tell you how great you are at it? There lies your purpose
4. "The struggles that have shaped you"
The pains, darkness, your past experiences and challenges we face in life prepare us for our purpose. Don't look at your past struggles as moments of shame but moments of insight
5. "The things you often critic"
Is there an area you like to give an opinion on? Do you see people shadily dressed and want to suggest how best they could have done it? Maybe your purpose is in line with fashion. Do you go to events and end up criticizing how late it started, how poor the decor was done and how bad the sound was? Maybe your purpose is in event organizing
6. "The hints your childhood gave"
Your purpose could have been trying to be expressed when you were a child. When a little one what did you love to do? Pay attention to your childhood, in your childhood your passion was innocent, real and true
7. "The things that you keep pursuing even when you fail"
Is there something you keep chasing after even when you hit walls or get discouraged? Something you want to fight for no matter how difficult? There lies your purpose
8. "The school subjects you excel in"
Look at the subjects in school, which ones did you/ do you perform well in. In the subjects in line with our purpose we don't cram to pass exams, we read to understand; we read beyond our school curriculum, we hunger to know more about the subject outside school
9. "The issues that move your heart"
What things in life move your heart, some of them moving you to the point you get teary? Pay attention to what gives your heart a kick and joy, there lies your purpose
10. "The things you love to do before life discouraged you"
Go back in time, back before you stopped dreaming, what were you fired up about? There lies your purpose
11. "The areas you would invest in if you had unlimited money"
If you had a lot of money, beyond your basic needs where would you invest? Your purpose is tied to what you would give wealth to
12. "The problems people run to you for solutions"
Are there issues that people turn to you to solve, areas where you love giving solutions? People are turning to you because your purpose is already showing to them. When living out your purpose to people you appear a master in that area
13. "The things you do that bring you fulfillment"
What do you do that makes you feel alive, you end the day feeling wonderful having done it? There lies your purpose
14. "The things you feel empty when you don't do them"
This is not about an addiction but noble tasks. Are there noble tasks and ventures you feel empty and unsettled when you don't do them? There lies your purpose. Don't deny yourself the chance to do them
15. "The things you do that bring out your confidence"
When you're living out your purpose you are your most confident, your face lights up when talking about it. Pay attention to your confident levels, where you glow and feel in your element, there lies your purpose
