Life’s too short to sit around doing nothing. We were put on this earth for a purpose. Thus, the question, “what’s the purpose of life?”. Everyone has a unique purpose. It’s only a matter of time we figure it out. One must remember, having a purpose doesn’t mean something extraordinary. Simple things we do with dedication and selflessness makes a big difference. However, it’s the realization process that many of us don’t understand that ultimately make us think we don’t have a purpose.
Only you can define what your purpose is. Understanding who you are, which includes your likes and dislikes, your ability, your opinions and thoughts are the beginning of realizing your purpose. Every experience we stumble upon and each challenge we face tells us who we are and what kind of person we are. Finding ourselves and understanding who we are can make a tremendous difference in how we react to the external forces the world throws at us and the decisions we make for ourselves.
How well we handle stress and conflicts gives us an idea of how “powerful” we are. Knowing your ability tells whether you are able to execute certain tasks to get where you want to be. However, one should live by “the sky is the limit” example. Limits exists only in the mind. One shouldn’t be afraid to try new things. Trying new things allows us to experiment our hypothesis of how strong we are.
Do you know where you want to be in the future? Many people have goals they want to achieve, either short or long-term. Goal is defined as something one hopes to accomplish, thus, a purpose. Everyone has something they want to achieve or somewhere they see themselves later down in life. With a better understanding of one’s self and his/her ability, it’s easier to set goals accordingly. By setting a goal, it creates a guideline for how you plan your everyday routine and how much work you should put in towards reaching your goal or your ultimate purpose of life.
