Purposeful Living

The Basics

Are you a person who feels happy every day when they wake up and feel like everything is going great in life or are you a person who feels like something is missing but you cannot quiet put your finger on it? If you are the latter it is more than likely because you have not yet discovered your true purpose in life. Living your life in a way that serves your purpose is extremely important if you wish to be happy. Those who do not find their true purpose often find themselves wandering through life with no real sense of direction or reason for being here. They will also have a hard time becoming motivated and no matter what goals they accomplish, they will still feel a void deep inside their body. All of these negative effects of not finding your life’s purpose can be damaging to your emotional health and can slowly dwindle down your drive to succeed in life.


Do not feel alone if you have not yet discovered your purpose in life because there are many people who are just like you. The reason for this is likely due to the fast pace of today’s everyday life. It seems as if there is less and less time to take for yourself from day to day. It can be easy to find yourself going to a job that you do not like and feel meaningless doing because like everyone else, you have bills do.
The first step to discovering yourself and what your purpose in life is you are going to have to set aside some time for yourself, no matter how difficult it may be to find time.


It is important to keep in mind during the process of trying to discover your life’s purpose that your purpose may not necessarily be on that is full of wealth, it may actually be something that requires you to make sacrifices. These sacrifices will pay off in the long run however and your life will surely become blessed. No amount of wealth or material objects that you are able to accumulate during your life will ever be able to provide you with the happiness that you receive from discovering what your purpose in life is. Once you discover your purpose you will no longer feel such a desire for money and material objects because your purpose will fill the void that you have on the inside.


There are a few things that you are going to have to do in order for you to discover the purpose that was laid out for you. As mentioned before, one of the things you will have to do is learn how to set aside time for yourself so that you can think and not be disturbed.


You need to find somewhere quiet and free your mind of all distractions if you want to be able to communicate with the inner-you and receive a response on what your purpose is. Keep in mind, you may not receive an answer right away and your answer may not be as obvious as you would like it to be. You need to pay attention to the signs of the universe and see what clues they give you.


Another thing that you need to do if you want to discover your purpose in life is learn how to get out of your safety bubble. Many people learn to put themselves in a bubble in order to shield them from certain things in life.
The problem with this is the fact that this bubble often times keeps out more good things than it does bad. Putting yourself in a bubble forces you to fall into a routine and does not offer you the opportunity to venture out and discover what your purpose in life is. Living in a bubble can also eventually lead to people settling for the way their life is, even if they are not content or happy. This is because it can feel more comfortable to stay in the bubble rather to venture into the unknown and discoverer who you truly are.


You will likely feel uncomfortable when you first venture outside of your safety bubble and that is quite normal for people to experience. This is due to the false sense of security that their safety bubble has gotten them used to. Just as with anything else in life, practice will make it much easier to stray from your bubble.
Remember, even baby steps are still progress. No one is telling you to go out and change every element of your life in one day, in fact that would be a terrible idea. If you want to be able to discover the true purpose of your life it will take a little time but the first place to start is leaving your bubble. Meet new people, try new things and discover who you are. Chances are that there are many things in life that you have no idea that you would be interested in or very talented with. Ditch the bubble and begin to really live
