Purpose is “the reason for something or someone’s existence.” It is the reason something or someone was created. Look around you. Everything around you began in someone’s mind. You are actually surrounded by thoughts. More precisely, you are looking at the manifestation of someone’s thoughts. The computer, phone, or other digital device you are reading this on was once just a thought in someone’s mind. Someone had the idea to provide a better digital experience. That person visualized it and began to work on creating it. The same is true of people. Every person who ever lived was born on purpose, with purpose. God doesn’t make any junk. You are very important.
When you live out your purpose (or fulfill your purpose), you will have a more rewarding life. When you don’t fulfill your purpose, there will be a nagging sense of emptiness. You must discover and fulfill your purpose in life. Don’t waste another day merely going through the motions. If you are not careful, you will wake up one day when it’s too late to really live.
4 Clues Regarding Your Purpose
- What makes you laugh?
- What makes you cry?
- What are you great at?
- What personality type are you?
What makes you laugh? One clue to your purpose and destiny is what brings you the greatest amount of joy. In other words, what would you do with your life if money was not an issue? Think about it long and hard. What would get you up in the morning with a smile on your face? What kind of work would you do that would not be a chore? Sometimes the things that bring you the greatest joy and fulfillment are the very things you were created to do. One key here – make sure it is something in which you can serve others. Your purpose is never tied to selfishness.
What makes you cry? Another clue to consider is what tugs on your heart? It might be neglected children. It might be men’s or women’s issues. It can be just about anything. Sometimes the purpose of your heart cries out when it sees certain things.
What are you really good at? Often you will be “really” good at things that are tied to your purpose. This doesn’t mean you always want to do those things. These things sometimes feel monotonous. Take a close look at your life from this perspective. Also, ask people close to you their opinion of what you are really good at. See if there is a consensus.
What personality type are you? Take a personality test. Discover your personality type. You were specifically created with the unique characteristics necessary to fulfill your purpose. The more you understand and flow in your personality type, the more successful you will be.
The sooner you discover and live out your purpose, the sooner you will enjoy life at a much higher level. This will give you a great sense of fulfillment and accomplishment. It is a daily issue. You must also grow in your purpose. Continually improve and enhance yourself. You’ll be rewarded greatly for doing this.
