How do you find your life’s purpose?
How do you find your passion?
What are you supposed to be doing? We’ve all been wondering a variety of things, one of which is our life’s purpose. Because of all of the uncertainty caused by all of the changes, you may have recognized that the work you’re doing isn’t something you’re truly passionate about.
Ask yourself, what is your mission?
What do I intend to do? And why am I interested in doing it? Do I wish to assist others? Do I want to work with organizations? Do I want to be more involved in my community now?
It doesn’t necessarily have to be related to your life’s work, i.e. your job or career. But, more than likely, if you can link your purpose and passion with your career, relationships, or whatever it is, it will bring more meaning to your life and more fulfillment to you.
What is your WHY?
What gives you energy?
What gives you the most energy?
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
What can you lose yourself in for hours on end?
It’s fine if you don’t know the answers to these questions. Inquire with your friends and loved ones. They’ll be able to tell you just what fires you up and what doesn’t. So, if you’re unsure, check with your trusted friends and family members.
One of the things that we all have is passion.
We all have distinct areas of interest that we are passionate about. It’s simply a question of figuring out what it is; when we can serve and help others, it offers us a lot of satisfaction as humans; we love being able to help others succeed in their own life.
So discovering your meaning isn’t just about you.
It’s not just about purpose. It’s about finding a purpose that you can share with the world, which is what makes life whole.
We spend money on vacations because of our passion for relaxation and fun. We buy music to listen to when we long for inspiration and motivation. So why not devote time to yourself in order to become your best self and identify what truly matters to you?
In reality, it’s not about you at all.
It’s about bringing more of yourself to anything you do in order to make the world a better place.
During this pandemic, we discovered that perhaps some of us have been lost, that we have been sort of lost, and have not really known what offers us joy, what energizes us, or what gives us a sense of purpose.
Now is the moment to evaluate that.
