There are people who are able to wake up every day, whether it be rain or shine, and effortlessly put a smile on their face. It doesn’t matter what circumstances their life may present to them of what hardships they may experience, they are still content. Do you know anyone like this and have you ever wondered what their secret is to being so happy?
More often than not, these types of people are able to enjoy both the good and bad in life the way they do because they understand life on a different level. Their understanding allows them to recognize that we are not small fish in a big pond but rather a part of something bigger than anything imaginable.
We all have a purpose in life; some of us however may not know what that purpose is. Many people lose sight of trying to fulfill their purpose in life for many different reasons. One of the most common is getting caught up in the nine to five routine. While paying the bills and making sure everyone is fed is important, so is you finding and fulfilling your purpose in life.
To help you understand the importance of this matter you must first understand that the fulfillment of another person’s purpose may depend on the fulfillment of yours. Some people think that we simply exist as individuals and that their actions really have no direct impact on the universe. If these same people were to take the time to analyze some of their past actions or behaviors, the ripple effect that was caused would be more than visible.
So the question now is, do you think you are living out your purpose in life? In all honesty, most people who are would not even have to think before answering that question. You will know when you are living out your purpose because the feeling of bliss and joy that you experience will be like nothing else you have ever experienced.
If you need a few more examples of ways in which you can tell if you are not fulfilling your purpose, take a look at the following examples:
• Not Waking Up With A Smile/Having A Hard Time Getting Up At All
• High Levels Of Joy And Excitement Followed By Extreme Lows
• Social Circles Of Negative People
• Unclear Of The Bigger Picture In Life
• Lack Of A Spiritual Connection
• Hard Time Loving Yourself And Others
If any of the above sounds familiar, chances are that you are not fulfilling your true purpose in life. So now the question is, what can you do to begin the process of finding your purpose in life?
Take a look at the following examples for some ideas:
• Base Your Motivations Off Pure Intentions
The media as well as other forms of mass publicity seems to like to brainwash people into thinking every person’s purpose in life is to become rich and famous. This could not be any further from the truth. In fact, some people’s purposes actually require them to do many things that they find unpleasant or hard to deal with at first. However, the reward that they receive and the abundance of joy that they are gifted with makes it all worth it.
• Always Be Yourself
You should never try to act like anyone other than yourself. We were all made unique for a reason. In most cases, each of our unique traits relates to our life purpose in one way or another. Therefore, it would be basically impossible to discover what your purpose is if you mask who you really are.
• Do Random Positive Things
Doing random positive things for people will help you to get an idea of what your purpose is in life. Keep in mind, your purpose in life will always be positive. Therefore, each positive thing you do will draw you closer and closer to your true purpose in life.
• Face Your Fears And Brave The Unknown
If you do not know what your purpose in life is, it may possibly be due to the fact that you have placed yourself in a comfort bubble. If so, do not be ashamed or feel guilty. After all, it really is just human nature. However, in order to discover your purpose in life and experience true bliss you may first have to experience fear and brave the unknown. Ask any person who has ever had to step out of their comfort zone to find their meaning in life if they were scared or not. They will surely answer yes but they will also surely explain to you that it was the best decision that they ever made. Most importantly you must also believe in yourself and your abilities. Let go of any doubt that you may possess as they will only bring on more fear.
In all honesty, discovering your purpose in life is usually not an overnight thing. It may be a long road and it may be a bit bumpy. However, the things in life that are worth having are the things in life that are worth working for.
Find your purpose so that you can understand what it feels like to truly be alive!
