DO YOU ASK YOURSELF… Why am I here? What’s my purpose?
Do I know where I want to be? If you find yourself asking these questions again and again and
I’ve been thinking about my purpose in life recently (this is normal for me lol). I’ve finally realised mine is simply to ENCOURAGE POWERFUL, INDEPENDENT, STRONG PEOPLE💞. When it comes to finding your purpose, it doesn’t have to be a list of things, one thing that is important to you is enough.
And that one thing alone can determine every single one of your decisions in life…
If you want to stay motivated, positive, feel content and be able to experience life to the absolute fullest, finding your purpose is the way to do that (in my experience anyway). Without having a purpose to guide you, your goals and plans won’t fulfil you as much as they could if you truly dug deep and understood WHY they are your goals in the first place.
Stop what you are doing for 2 minutes, grab a note-pad and a pen. Ask yourself these questions and write down the FIRST things that come to your head. Don’t try to be the ‘good person’. Don’t kid yourself with what you think you is ‘the right thing to say’. Just really try to be honest with the first 3 things that come to mind:
- What do you think about most?
- What’s often on your mind?
- Where do your thoughts tend to drift to?
- What do you react to the most? (Positive or Negative).
- What do you fill your space with? What do you always have on you? (Any object)
It doesn’t stop there.
There are heaps of questions we could ask ourselves about our general daily life but follow the pattern and ask yourself WHY? (keep expanding your ‘why’s’ on paper). Are these things to do with finance, materialistic things, social, love life, family, hobbies, holidays? What is the purpose behind these answers? And hopefully just that little bit of thinking alone will enable you to open your mind to what’s really important to you and what you ACTUALLY live life for… not what you THINK you live life for.
Keep that piece of paper for as long as you can, read it every morning before you go to work, school, uni if you need to! This will help you to remind yourself what is important to YOU.
Finding your purpose is basically that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow or the lightbulb in your life to help you figure out what you can do with your valuable time, so you can stop procrastinating and start doing. And not just ‘doing’, but doing what’s IMPORTANT to you.
Spreading positivity, giving people a different outlook on life and making people feel good about themselves is so important to me. I’m going continue to put my foot down to hopefully keep having a positive impact on everyone’s lives I manage to come across in some way. That’s just me.🤞🏽
But what’s your purpose?
