What is your purpose in life? What are your callings?
Many people die without living out their purpose, either because they don’t know what is it, or because they are not diligent in living it. Don’t die with this regret!
The most beautiful life a person can ever live is not a luxurious life or living in fame, but living a life with purpose. My life totally changed when I discovered mine, and every day is so meaningful and fun for me now! I’m living my purpose even through this blog! Living my purpose makes my life exciting and alive, and I want you to feel the same. My prayer and wish for you, my reader, is that you may find what is your unique purpose and then live it out 🙂
what is a purpose
A purpose is a reason, the big “Why?”. Why do you exist? Why were you created? Why are you doing what you are doing?
As a fish is made to swim in water and an eagle to soar in the sky, so you were made to fulfill your unique purpose! A fish can’t live outside the water and it can’t thrive in small aquariums, an eagle can’t live under water and it can’t thrive in a cage, the same way you can’t thrive in a life outside your purpose and calling. You can survive, bu you won’t thrive.
This is Why it’s so important that you know yours. Are you ready to find out what it is? Grab your favorite notebook and pen and let’s start this self-discovery to find our purpose 😉
How you can find out your life purpose
Fulfilling your life purpose if a life-long journey, we always discover there’s much more of what we can see along the way 🙂
Because in our time we are more focused on the financial goals and benefits, we end up confused and we start to believe that finding our purpose is a hard thing when it’s not! Most of the times it’s our own personality and nature that tells us what is it! We often close our eyes when our purpose is actually screaming out through our every breath.
Remember: no life if without purpose. If you believe you don’t have one, you’re missing your whole life.
You can find it expressing itself through your dreams, talents and strong feelings. So, take some time to ask yourself these questions and answer them sincerely.
- What am I good at doing?
- What comes naturally well to me?
- What are my strengths?
- What I enjoy/love doing?
- What can I do every day for the rest of my life, even without being paid for?
- What does make me feel angry?
- What does make me feel sad? What can bring me to tears?
- Whom do I want to help?
- Who or what makes me want to do something to step up and help?
- What are my wildest dreams?
- If money, or time, or age wouldn’t be a problem, what would I do?
- What are the dreams that never leave me? What is the idea that keeps coming to my mind?
- What are the dreams that can bless others? Will my dream make a difference in other people’s lives?
Finding pieces of a puzzle
Is there a dream that covers also your talents and feelings? You may see your answers unrelated to each other, or you may start to see a common ground for different things like an activity, a group of people you enjoy working with, a same wanted result. All these things are pieces of a puzzle that is your purpose.
Start attaching matching pieces, start working on these areas and little by little you’ll find other pieces on your way.
Maybe your purpose is to help single mothers or teenage moms because you share a similar background, or helping disabled or elderly people. You can be a talented painter or photographer with a burden for human trafficking victims, or you want to create something new and innovative that will help people. Or maybe you already love your job as a teacher and you can have a huge positive influence on the future generations.
Everyone is called to do something great in this world! The most beautiful thing you can do for yourself is to reach your dreams!
Understand who you are and your big “WHY am I here?” and start living according to it.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, wich God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
