What I am doing with my life?
Where my life is heading?
What is my purpose in life?
Every one questions this at least once in their life. It’s been said that, unless you find true purpose in life, you can’t find happiness and success. So it’s better to find your life’s meaning sooner before it’s too late. Also I am not here to talk about philosophical answers, but the ways to find very meaning your life, which will helps you to set future goals.
Before we start please note that meaning of life of all individuals changes with person to person. So if others are finding what you are doing or planning is ill-logical or insane that doesn’t mean you are wrong. That being said, below are my tips to help you figure out exactly why you are here? Where your passions are hiding? And what is going to be the spark to set your world alight with meaning?
1. Start doing what you love
Do you like to travel?
Do you love singing?
or Do you enjoy sports? or all of the above?
Things you love to do are the foundation of meaning of your life. It’s just that when we start growing up we usually start abandoning those things, and because of that we never really figure out our purpose in life. So start doing what you used to enjoy once.
When you know what truly makes you happy and joyful in life, then you will find a sense of purpose to your life. You will find a direction that you need to go in order to create the most meaningful life possible for you.
2. Step out of comfort zone
Sure we care about our daily life, our career and our wealth. But the truth is we really don’t enjoy it that much.
All experts say that, the reason for boredom and meaninglessness in life is because of its monotonousness. Continual monotonous repetition creates boredom and certainly does not get you any closer to finding true meaning and excitement. Your comfort zone is simply a less extreme version of an obsessive, compulsive disorder. Strong, happy people with meaningful lives are adventurers. The meaning in your life is obviously not inside your comfort zone or you would already be living the life you were meant to live.
You become more of the person you were meant to be every time you push past your fears. It doesn’t matter how small or big the step is but once you take the step, your comfort zone becomes bigger, and life offers you more opportunities.
3. Listen to your inner voices
What you like?
What you need?
What you want?
It’s all only be answered by your inner voice. Your intuition is connected to your inner-self. So don’t judge it. Don’t get caught living your life in complete superficiality. Superficiality is meaningless, short term and soulless. Every time you have a choice to make, let your intuition to guide you. Finding the real person inside yourself is not easy but will definitely help you see what is really important in your life.
In the end it’s all up to you. We all want to have purpose in life, a true meaning of life. But not all of us have a will power to pursue it.
Finding purpose in life is not a difficult thing, but its hardship to stay true with it.
Still in the end it’s worth it.
So make a decision today, and start your search for purpose and experience everything that this life has to offer. I promise, you won’t regret it.
