We’ve all read feature articles about those lucky individuals who are “living their passion” and have “found their purpose in life.” They seem so happy. Their confidence levels are off the charts.
Slumping off to the drudgery of your day job, you wonder if it’s truly possible to be as happy as they seem. Positive. Confident. Joyful. These folks can’t be for real. Deep down inside you both admire and resent them.
Let me tell you a secret.
Everyone has a life’s purpose. You just haven’t found yours yet.
Where do you start looking for purpose? Start with your passions:
- Is there something (hobby or other) you love doing?
- Is there a cause you feel strongly about?
- Is there a career or activity you are fascinated by?
Remember: Your life’s purpose may not seem grandiose to you, but then again it really isn’t about you. It’s what you do for others. Never underestimate the importance of bringing someone else joy!
