How to Live Your Life With Purpose

Is purpose inherently within us? Or do we find it as we live our life? Or maybe there is no purpose, and it is up to us to create it?

How to Live Your Life with Purpose

Ever ask yourself these questions? What’s my purpose? Why am I here? Is there more to life?

(I know I have!)

It's one of those things that crosses everyone's mind at some point.

The idea of ‘purpose’ can present itself in our lives in so many ways. It could be in the form of an inspiration for many movements, careers and philosophical topics. It has been debated since the dawn of human existence.

Is purpose inherently within us? Or do we find it as we live our life? Or maybe there is no purpose, and it is up to us to create it?

Before we delve deeper I would like to share something personal…


But First, A Personal Story

Most my life, I was 'searching' for my life purpose because, well, I saw so many others do the same...

I suppose I was looking for something specific that I could put neatly in the proverbial box - 'my purpose is to be a writer' or, 'my purpose is to be a financial advisor'... you know what I mean?

It was like a constant battle up hill. And as strange as it sounds, I didn’t even know what 'having a purpose' meant, let alone actually living it out.

I figure, I just expected it to happen. I lived in a bubble for a while, that when it 'happens', I’ll know and then my life would make sense and then I could find a deeper sense of self.

Is it too surprising that it never worked?

And why??

Because here's the thing - no one is born to be a writer, or to be a director, or to be a construction worker. We are just simply born. And we make whatever we decide to make of ourselves.

Life doesn't just happen; people mould it into what they want.

Every single moment, we're making a choice to direct our lives the way we want it to, even if we're procrastinating making a choice, we're still choosing after all.

So What Is Your Purpose?

If it doesn't automatically land on our lap, if it is not our career pathway, if it is not what our parents told us... then what is your purpose?

In my experience, as a coach and a lifelong learner, our purpose is simply...
To Love. To learn. To grow. To give.

Once you start living your 4 truths as a loving, learning, growing and giving human being, the pathway presents itself.

Amazing, right?

Can You Relate?

I believe we're here for a reason.

Either you're curious about how to be all you can be, things are not as you want them and you want to do something about it, or things are great and you're ready for the next level of results - by making a difference that matters.

Whatever your reason or purpose in life, you are capable of creating your own life, on your own terms, regardless of the circumstances you may find yourself right now.

Love to hear your thoughts on this... can you relate with my thoughts on our purpose? Share with me in the comments below!
