Trying To Discover Your Life Purpose? These 6 Tips Can Help You

Do you know what your life purpose is? Many adults and young people are unsure of what they want to do with their lives; however, having a purpose within your life will bring you happiness, motivation, and direction. Here are six methods to help you discover your life purpose.

 1. Think About What You Loved To Do As A Child

    Children freely embrace their passions and are often encouraged by their parents to pursue their hobbies. Get a pad of paper, ask yourself these four questions, and write down the answers; What kind of people did you like to hang out with? What was your favourite toy? What was your favorite game? What was your favorite subject?

    After you have asked yourself each question, ask yourself the reason why, and take time to think about your answers. You may notice themes and patterns emerging as you mull over your first passions and hobbies; if so, note them down and explore them further.

    2. Take Notice Of How You Spend Your Free Time

      Think about what you choose to do during your free time, and how you enjoy spending your days off. Your life purpose will be something you are skilled at and feel passionately about – much like your hobbies. People can find themselves with hobbies they were unaware they even had, from making videos, to doodling, to creating recipes.

      Although many people don’t consider it, the things you are inclined to do in your spare time are often an integral part of your life purpose, or they complement it.

      3. Don’t Think There Is Only One Life Purpose For You

        Many people feel dissatisfied because they believe they need to find the one ‘true’ life purpose they need to fulfil. However it is rare for a person to have one thing they feel truly passionate about, and choosing to think you have only one purpose can stop you from fulfilling many other life purposes.

        Most people have many, varied passions, which they can combine together or fulfil separately. Think about all of the things you love to do, and consider what you could do with them.  Living a life where you follow your passions is a life of purpose and happiness.

        4. Ask Your Friends For Advice

Ask them what they think your life purpose is; you may be surprised at how useful their answers are.

            Many people feel overwhelmed at the prospect of seeking out their life purpose and changing their lives. Start by writing a list of the things you want to do, no matter how big or small. Add to the list every time you think of more things you want to achieve, and don’t worry about ticking everything off the list.

            Take it day by day, and remember everything you tick off is a personal achievement. The future may be unclear to you now, but your list is a clear and concise list of things you want to achieve.

            6. Know That You Are Already Living A Form Of Your Life Purpose

              Choosing the main purpose for your life can become time-consuming and stressful, as people often worry they will never find their purpose. However, you are already living a form of your life purpose, so try not to cause yourself stress and upset.

              Be aware you are here now, and take steps to push yourself forward and make yourself happy every day. Eventually, you will stumble upon your life purpose – and worrying won’t speed you up.
