The day you were born, and the day you find out why you were born.
That’s how important finding your purpose is. When you discover what it is, your life truly begins.
People who discover and live their life purpose use their mental, emotional, and creative energies to develop a skill, talent, or interest they love.
When you give yourself to something you genuinely love, it calls forth your spirit. That makes you happier and more fulfilled, and you feel like you’re in sync with your inner self.
Of course, as I explained in the video, it’s not always easy to discover your purpose.
Going in circles
Many years ago, at a time when I had no formal education, no business experience, and no money, I just wandered around in life.
One day, a man asked me what my purpose in life was. I didn’t even know what he was talking about, but fortunately, he kept talking to me. Ultimately, he got me to sit down and start thinking about what my purpose was.
It took some time, but eventually, I settled on it.
I’ve since learned that if you have not found your purpose in life, you’re missing out on an enormous amount of enjoyment and possibly a respectable amount of wealth. However, whether you earn money from it or not, if you’re spending your days doing what you love, you’re on purpose.
If you wake up every morning and love what you’re going to do, you’re a rich person because you’re getting satisfaction from how you spend your days.
I’m going to be 87 this year, and I have as much energy as a person who is 37. I have no intention of slowing down or retiring. Retiring means pulling back from life, and I’m certainly not going to do that!
But listen, finding your purpose isn’t something you should rush.
If you don’t know yours or know someone trying to discover theirs, download the PDF below. I’ve outlined a step-by-step strategy for finding and living your purpose.
While you’re zeroing in on your purpose, keep this in mind…
Your purpose should be something that people will benefit from long after you’re gone. And if you’re doing something you love, it will be.
And remember, as I discussed in the video, you should have a purpose, a vision, and goals.
Your purpose is why you’re living. Your vision is a long-range view of all the things you want to accomplish that are on purpose. And each of your goals takes a bite out of your vision.
It all starts with knowing your purpose. So, don’t go another day without trying to discover yours. Finding your purpose and living it will change every day of your life.
To your success,
