If you've ever been dissatisfied with your life and thought, "There must be something more" you're absolutely right. There's a whole lot more.
Learning about yourself and your place in the world might even be the true meaning of life. But that's for you to decide and discover.
Your soul is crying out for you to discover why you were put on this Earth. It wasn't just to work a job you hate, pay bills, and die. Everyone has the desire to find their life's purpose, but in most it is suppressed by society.
Why are YOU here? Everyone wonders this at some point in their life, if not at many points. Hopefully, most people find what they're looking for. If you haven't found your life purpose yet, have no fear. Most people haven't.
Most people let this simmer in their unconscious mind, choosing to push it aside, ignore it completely, or they feel like they just weren't born with a purpose. Living a life in that mindset is not holistically healthy! We want you to be different!
You were created with a unique set of passions and talents that no one else in the world has. Discovering your purpose in life lets you use your unique personality, skills, abilities, and interests to bring you greater self-fulfillment. When you're doing what you feel like you must have been born to do, you can live a life you created, not just a life you feel was handed to you.
Sometimes the thing that holds you back from self-discovery is a fear of change. There's comfort and safety in not taking risks, but you also may never discover your life's true purpose.
It takes a lot of work to find it. Nobody can find your life purpose for you. It requires self awareness and self analyzing.
You may be one of the lucky few who know what their life purpose is at an early age, and are also lucky if that doesn't change over time. Those people generally don't have to struggle so hard.
But for most of us, we either have too many obstacles, or too many ideas of what their life purpose could be.
There are many books and programs out there to help you find your life purpose. But if you can't afford it or don't have the time, you can try these simple ideas which are also quite fun!
Try volunteering if you have the free time. Find an organization in your community that interests you. Doing something worthwhile can be a good way to discover your purpose. This is also a good way to get your feet wet in a career without having to spend money on schooling or waste time working at a job that you decide isn't for you.
Ask yourself some important questions; When anything is possible, what would you do? What would you do if you didn't have to worry about money? What do you love to do so much that time seems to not exist when you are doing it?
What change are you passionate about seeing in the world? What unique skills and personality traits do you want to incorporate into your life's purpose? What would you do with unlimited amounts of money, once your survival needs have been met?
Explore a new hobby or an old one that you pushed aside. We all have at least one activity we've been putting off until a more convenient time. Doing something new and different exposes you to new ideas and thoughts.
Some people have too many hobbies and interests and can't decide which one to pursue. In this case, you can take into account other factors such as which ones fit in with your education, skills, and talents. Or which one fits best with the lifestyle you want to live, what your idea day and lifestyle would be like.
Start a vision board, and display it where you will see it every day. Vision boards are something you can attach pictures, quotes, words, or anything else that you want your ideal life to include. Just be sure to also spend time taking action, and being on the lookout for opportunities in the form of baby steps to your goal. A fulfilling life of purpose doesn't usually happen overnight.
Get a journal. Write in it either first thing in the morning or last thing before bed, when your mind is calm and stress free. Write down what your ideal day would be like. Project yourself into the future and imagine that your life is essentially perfect.
What would your life look like? Are you working? What type of work are you doing? What do you do all day? Who is in your life?
Now that you know what the end looks like, what can you do today to take the first step in that direction?
Let yourself keep writing without editing and second guessing anything you write. Write whatever comes to your mind without worrying about if it's right or wrong or even true. Just write every thought, and do this for a good amount of time, up to an hour or more if necessary. Don't stop until your mind feels empty.
The longer you do it, the more words you will purge from your mind. It is even helpful to meditate before doing this, or while you are doing it to have some calming music on in the background, or while sitting outside in nature where it's quiet. Really let your thoughts run wild!
Often little gold nuggets will be set free during this process, even embedded in a sentence about something different entirely. You never know what the subconscious mind will bring forth when you unlock the door!
It's important to remember a life purpose may not just mean a career or a job. You might decide that your life purpose is to just be a good mother, or volunteer with those less fortunate, or anything else that doesn't involve getting paid. As long as you feel that you are accomplishing your goals, that is all that matters.
But you should not stay at a job that drags you down, there is no use in living your purpose doing good in the world if you are going to be miserable for the other part of your day.
