How To Find Your True Life’s Passion and Purpose
In order to realize your true life’s purpose you need to be ready to accept ‘change’. Change may come in the form of a change in consciousness, a change in belief-sets and/or thought-patterns, a distinct career change, a change in lifestyle choices.
Most of us have asked the question in one way or another, “What should I be doing with my life? What’s my purpose?”
This is not an easy question ….
To find your answers:
Listen to your intuition.
Still your thinking, analytical mind. Listen.
Everyone has an inner-voice that acts as our internal radar system and guide. We just have to listen to it and trust it in order to be led by it successfully.
Feelings and messages about our purpose and passion often come as a gnawing thought or a reminder of what sparks your interests and what is important to you. Sometimes some sort of serendipitous situation or event will take place in order to jolt your hidden personal passions and purpose.
Ask yourself: ‘What makes me happy?’ – and answer honestly.
Take the opportunity to really analyse your happiness.
What brings you true Joy? Write a list … you may see a trend develop.
What is stopping you from pursuing your joys and turning them into a life purpose or mission?
If you are spending a great deal of your time doing menial tasks, working at a job you loathe or living in a way that is unfulfilling for you, recognise and acknowledge this – then be ready for change.
Think about what frustrates you, what excites you, what motivates you, what disinterests you. Take conscious note of your reactions as these may indicate where your true purpose lies.
Ask yourself what you love to do, what you love about yourself, what you love about your life.
Ask yourself what is really important to you? What ‘causes’ do you lean towards? What and/or who inspires you?
How could you make a positive difference to the world for yourself and others? When we live our passions and life purposes we are fulfilled, satisfied and happy. This positive vibration spreads and reverberates to every corner of your life and serves as an example for others to follow.
Trust yourself to make the right choices for YOU. Listen to your inner-voice – then trust it.
Sometimes your inner voice may lead you along a path that could bring you great personal joy and fulfilment, but may seem a little unorthodox, unsuited or inappropriate to family, friends or peers in their view and judgement. Sometimes finding and living your purpose could mean going against the wishes or advice of others, particularly that of close friends and family. Be true to yourself regardless. Walk your own path.
Make your decisions based upon your own personal truths – no one else’s. Have faith and trust in your dreams and follow their lead.
Patience is an important key. Finding your life’s purpose may take time to discover and nurture. Trust that everything happens in divine right timing.
If you are feeling unfulfilled and know there is ‘more to life’ out there for you, take the time, patience and commitment to find your true life purpose. Once you find your passion and begin to live your purpose, it will be well worth it for you for the rest of your life.
