What is your purpose in life?

What is your purpose in life? What were you put here to do? What are you unbelievably passionate about?

These are questions I’ve asked myself a gazillion times over the years, and I am happy to say that I now (finally!) have the answer!

Knowing your purpose or identifying your passion isn’t always something that comes easy to many people. I know I searched for my purpose in life for a very long time before I finally worked out exactly what it was and what it meant to me.

So once you’ve worked out what your passion or purpose in life is, then what? And why is it so important???

From now on I’ll use “purpose” as my reference to both purpose and passion because I really do think they are very similar or the same in many aspects.

Ok…. when you live without a purpose, you are literally heading nowhere. You’re just living day to day with no clear direction, and I can bet that you’re not feeling too great about yourself either, right? You probably feel lost, wondering why you’re here and why you even bother sometimes.

If you’re in a relationship, it’s likely that without a purpose, you’re totally focused on your man – not on yourself and what you want to do in life, because you really don’t know what you want to do! Without your own purpose, it’s very difficult to have your own interests outside of your relationships too – this is not healthy!

On the other hand, having a purpose gives you the following benefits:

  • Your life has a clear direction
  • You have a great reason for getting out of bed every day!
  • You feel fulfilled and happy because you’re doing what you know you were put on the planet to do!
  • Your relationships improve because you’re not solely focused on your partner.
  • Finding the motivation to achieve your goals isn’t difficult when they’re in line with your purpose.
  • You feel a great sense of satisfaction when your life is congruent to your values and purpose.

These are just some of the many benefits of identifying and living in line with your purpose, and I can assure you that once you’ve identified what your purpose is, you’re going to completely change your perspective on life! In fact, I guarantee it!

Ok, so it’s all well and good to know that identifying your purpose is a great thing, but what if you’re like I was, and you don’t have a CLUE what that is?

I recently read a book which specifically outlines, step by step, how to identify your passions so you can live your life by them, and I can’t recommend this book enough (see below for link). I had the pleasure of meeting one of the Authors recently, and she is the perfect example of somebody who’s truly living their purpose! She’s just so… HAPPY! :)

So take a look at this book – I definitely recommend it to anybody who’s struggling to identify their true passions in life.
