A purpose driven life or having a life purpose some may say are one and the same. Whether you agree or disagree with the statement, purpose is the word that matters.
Trundling through life without a purpose is a bit like treading water. You can stay afloat for ever and ever but you never really get anywhere. It is important that everyone reaches out and makes an effort to find their life purpose and be the the very best that they can be. Don’t be run of the mill or wish washy about being something greater than just yourself.
A great quote from the wonderful Mr Zig ziglar You will never succeed as a wandering generality, you must become a meaningful specific.
Life Purpose Found?
So how do you find your purpose of life? There are I think a few things which may help.
Listen To Your Heart
Day in, day out, these days especially we are in information overload. Buy this, do that, no dont do that, go here, go there..it is never ending! So stop, block out all the noise and listen to your heart as it is here that you will find your true purpose of life. Self talk to the one person who will listen and sometimes argue and disagree yourself!
Write It Down
Do you keep a journal? I do. It has anything and everything in it, my lifes work if you like. You can become a self published author (of your own work). Your journal is the place to write those million things that float around in your head, (annoyingly at times). There you are at 2am in the morning with a million ideas zooming around write them in your journal.
Also ask yourself some questions like How would I like people to remember me? What am I going to put on my bucket list the most important things I want to do before I die?
Writing down the answers will give you a very good insight into you and the more times you ask and answer question the clearer your life purpose will become.
Track It Down With Purpose
There is no point sitting around waiting for information to fall into your lap, you have to become a seeker of that information. Start feeding your brain so that you can find out everything you can about what you desire and what you need to create your life purpose. The old adage if you want to be a millionaire, surround yourself with millionaires. Whatever you have thought of doing someone else has either done it already or done something very similar, so become the most avid of reader you can be and become a sponge. Combine this with your journal writing and your meetings with yourself and it won’t be long before you discover your purpose of life.
