When things have served their purpose it will go away. If you try and hold on to it, it will no longer fulfill your purpose. When you find that your peace is being disturbed let it go. Often I sit and think about why I was placed on this earth, and what I’m currently doing is fulfilling my purpose in life? We all like to wake up in the morning, being motivated, happy, and successful. I think that we can agree that we would like to seek a life of purpose. Yet, sometimes it is hard to be fulfilled and know if your purpose in life is being met. It is my belief that we are all here to have a definite purpose in life. However, discovering it can be the difficult task, but what I have learned is discovering it may be made by trial and error.
For myself, like many others, I get caught up in the daily routine of what I do as a creature of habit. Rather than a purpose-driven being of motivation that drives you to do things in your life. Discovering your purpose is the most important thing that you will do in your life that is the driving force that will lead you to all of your accomplishments and achievements. This will provide you with the motivation that will drive you to achieve the goals that you set for yourself to live your life to the fullest.
Discovering your purpose is definitely like the long journey that you follow throughout your life. Your purpose is defining by something that you are truly passionate about. It gets you excited or your juices flowing just the thought of pursuing it. I discovered after working in accounting for several years, that I wanted to go back to school and pursue my MSW. Many individuals told me that social workers didn’t make any money and the field was a burnout. However, once I became a case manager and I continue to work with people with disabilities I discovered the passion of advocacy, research, and helping other vulnerable individuals. It felt right and I knew that I was making a difference in the life of others and I also made a difference in my life. Learning to appreciate all the wonderful things that I had in my life that I often took for granted helped me discover my purpose. Everyone has a unique destiny for contributing to this world using their unique blend of talents and passions. Let’s take a look at how you can start discovering your purpose.
