Your purpose is one of the most powerful motivators in life. It's the driving force that propels us forward and gives us the energy and determination to reach our goals. But what exactly is your purpose, and how do we find it?

According to Jack Canfield, your purpose is why we're here. The unique combination of our passions, talents, values, and experiences gives us a sense of direction and fulfillment in life. It's the thing that makes us feel alive and excited to wake up each morning.


Finding your purpose in life can be a challenge. It's not something that you can read in a book or learn in a classroom. Instead, it's something that you have to discover for yourself through a process of self-reflection and experimentation.


One of the best ways to start this process is by asking yourself some critical questions. What are your passions? What are you good at? What values are important to you? What experiences have shaped who you are? Once you better understand yourself, you can start exploring different areas of your life that align with your passions, talents, values, and experiences.


For example, if you're passionate about helping others and have a talent for teaching, you might explore a career in education or counseling. If you value creativity and have a background in art, consider a career in the creative arts.


It's also important to remember that your purpose in life may change over time. Likewise, your passions, talents, values, and experiences may also change as you grow and evolve. That's why checking in with yourself and reassessing your purpose regularly is essential.


Another way to find your purpose is by looking at the problems you see in the world and the people around you. What are the issues that you care about? What are the problems that you want to solve? What kind of impact do you want to make in the world?


For example, consider a career in sustainable energy or conservation if you care about environmental issues. On the other hand, if you're passionate about social justice, consider exploring a career in advocacy or community organizing.


It's also important to remember that your purpose in life is not something that you can achieve or attain. It's not a destination that you're trying to reach. Instead, it's a journey that you're on. Your purpose is something that you're always working towards, always striving to live up to.


To live a purposeful life, you must have a clear and compelling vision of the future:

  • An image of the kind of life you want to live.

  • The sort of person you want to be.

  • The type of impact you want to make in the world.

A vision will give you a sense of direction, motivation, and inspiration to work toward your goals. It will give you a sense of purpose, something to strive for and live for.


So, to find your purpose in life, start by asking yourself some critical questions, look at the problems and issues around you, and create a clear vision of the future you want to make. Remember, it's a journey, not a destination, and it may change over time. But with a sense of purpose, you can live a life filled with passion, fulfillment, and meaning.


In conclusion, the purpose is not something you can find; it's something you create. The combination of your passions, talents, values, and experiences gives you a sense of direction and fulfillment in life. The purpose is why we're here, it's the thing that makes us feel alive, and it's the thing that gives us meaning.
