Don’t Know What to Do in Life? This Will Help You Find Your Life Purpose
Are you here because you want to find your life purpose? Trust me when I tell you this – most people around you don’t have the faintest idea about what to do with their lives. I haven’t met even one successful people who had it all figured out by the time they finished school. Seriously, even after college, even after working for a decade, many of us are still clueless about who we are and what we really want to achieve in life.
I should know because I went from one idea to another, and through more than a half a dozen career aspirations before I could really figure out my so-called “life purpose”; but not in the way you’d think.
I was 28 when I realized with a thud that the whole concept of life purpose was flawed. I mean, do you really spend your time thinking “I don’t know what to do in life?”, “what excites me?” “What am I missing?” I can tell you I talk to men and women in their late 30s, 40s and even 50s who are still thinking about these questions – their big “life purpose”!
So how can you find your life purpose?
You don’t need to find your life purpose
Let me explain why I’m not such a big fan of this “life purpose” thing. I just don’t believe that we are all born for some amazing higher purpose and it is the cosmic goal of our life to find it. I can’t tell you how many lives have been ruined, and how much time and energy wasted because of this logic. There are people that spend thousands of dollars on psychics, astrologers and therapy sessions to help find this exalted life purpose of theirs.
But really, the fact is there is no pre-determined life purpose or higher purpose. You and I create our own life purpose as we go along.
Look, we only have a limited time on this planet; very few of us are going to live much beyond 80 or 90 years of age. So there are a limited number of things we can do in this time – those that are important and those that are unimportant.
Most of the things we do are unimportant stuff, they are just meant for passing time. That doesn’t bring us much happiness. What we are going to be remembered for or thanked for by other people is for the important things we do in life. It is these important things that give your life meaning and purpose.
So, the one question you should ask yourself to find your life purpose is…
What is the most important thing I should do TODAY?
See – I am asking you to think of the stuff that you can do right now that really matters. Not procrastinating, daydreaming of the wonderful things you are going to do in a few years. The operative word used here is TODAY.
Now, what do I mean by “important things”? What are the things you want to be remembered for by your friends and family at your funeral? What do you want your legacy to be? How are you going to build your life with positive actions starting today?
Focus on that. All of us have only a limited time left on this planet; so let’s make the most of it. Build a life that you are going to be proud of. Make that your life purpose.
Question: What is the most important thing you should do today?
