Find the purpose of your life
The one question that everyone is asking, and no one knows the answer to. How do you find your purpose? Living, without treading the path you were destined to follow, is a life that most people want not to become their reality, yet becomes ingrained into their daily routines and existence. How do you discover this path?
– Your purpose and passion, may possibly change several times throughout your life –
Everyone has a purpose, but until they discover their purpose, life can seem like it is on repeat. Nothing seems to change, the days blur together from focusing on too many things at once, or nothing at all. Without making decisions, any decision, something to reach the next level, you can’t possibly discover the answer you’ve always asked yourself. Make the decision to try something you always wanted to do, or something you gave up on.
Finding the beginning
As a good, old friend once told me; “If you want to be good at something, you must learn to become a beginner first”. Many people, myself included, will jump into a task or an objective with the immediate sureness of “I know what I’m doing”. Before you make a decision to start on a new path; if you desire to explore a new path or career to hopefully stumble upon the creation of your purpose, and before you become a beginner, you have to get over fear. Get over the fear of doing something new, following a path that may feel like it will end in failure; but if you stay in the initial, immense but ultimately temporary torment of fear, you will never push your life towards the path you desire.
Once you enter onto the new path, and you don’t feel like it is working to the best of your own ability, simply make new courses in your action; most will just simply give up after several months of difficulty. Don’t give up, believe in the power of attraction, focus on what you want and not on what you wish you had, but is simply right in front of you if you keep pushing forward.
“Perfection is the enemy, of progress”
– Winston Churchill
Soon you will discover that the people you interact with, have no purpose or no desire to search for that purpose. They have given up on their childhood dreams, and adult aspirations. They have given up so much and been constantly spoon fed the idea that they must give their most valuable assets, time and personality, to jobs and relationships that make them feel unfulfilled and hateful of their existence. I don’t say this to be perceived as someone hating on them, I feel empathy because I know what that feeling was once like.
You will feel doubt from the work you are now creating; you will feel like giving up, and if you share your passions and purpose and goals with outsiders, they will pressure you into further doubting your abilities as well. These are the same people who have given up on, or never discovered, what their purpose to provide to the world is. Often, people will find some drive in their life to go after their purpose, only to give up after several weeks or months of doubt and feelings of failure. You cannot let that doubt ruin you, because if you give up you will spend that time you would have been working on your purpose and transfer that time to things and people that don’t improve your existence. I remember when I was first discovering my purpose; I had lost the woman I thought was the love of my life, I lost jobs, I lost money, and I lost connections. None of it was a loss, for the path the universe needed me to finally discover was on the other side of this perceived loss. I decided to focus on like-minded individuals and separate myself from the people who only provided doubt, negativity, and their own life failures and attempted to pressure me into being as mediocre and purposeless as they were. Like in a relationship, you cannot doubt or lose trust of your partner; you cannot give up your purpose to doubt and no longer trusting yourself or your mission in life.
