How to Find Your Life Purpose within Yourself?
Let me tell you my most favorite mythological tale.
After God created the earth, he looked down upon the complete desolation around. That was when he had decided to create us human beings and other living creatures. One of the humans created by God had then asked Him what the purpose of the life given to them was. To this God had then answered, “I leave it to each of you to think of one for yourself.” And then He went away.
You see, life is full of unanswered questions. However, the courage to seek answers from our lives is what gives meaning to our lives.
Finding yourself is at the root of everything we do in life. It is an immensely personal journey that you will benefit from. Easier said than done, recognizing who you want to be and passionately going about fulfilling your unique destiny involves breaking yourself down followed by a tedious act of building up. It’s a matter of recognizing our personal power.
If you want to uncover yourself completely, be brave enough to explore your past. Very often the painful experiences and memories from our early life determine why we behave like we do and how we define ourselves. Once you are ready to accept your truth, you will be able to understand yourself, your strengths and your weaknesses better.
In order to find yourself, you must also seek out your own personal sense of purpose. Free yourself from the complexities and drama of your life. Simplify and look within. Learn to separate other’s expectations from the opinion you hold of yourself. Learn to realize that even though you are but a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, you are not without purpose. It is right within you that you have all the gifts and talents you need to fulfill the unique purpose that you have been blessed with.
As a motivational speaker, let me tell you this. To enhance your life and find yourself, it becomes extremely essential that you learn to block pessimism. Not just externally, learn to silence your inner critic. Seek out people who make you happy and who inspire you enough to fall in love with your life.
Your aim in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it. The purpose of life is not to be just happy. It is to be useful, to make some difference by your presence. Mahatma Gandhi once said “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
The more generous and kind you are, the more you understand the meaning of life. So make sure to have your name carved on several hearts and minds before you get them carved on tombstones. Be a light at the end of the tunnel, or a lifeboat, or a ladder for someone. Save a soul and help someone heal.
Like you, many others are still struggling with the same core question of the purpose of their lives. If you’re one of the millions of people who feel like you haven’t quite discovered your purpose yet, do not let frustration get the better of you.
And if you have already found yourself and the purpose of your life, I would love to listen to your story.
