Here's A Place I Often Find My Purpose
Everyone can have a purpose in life. In fact, you should have more than one purpose because one isn’t enough to keep yourself motivated.
When you were a kid, your purpose was to have fun, be happy, get candy, and receive affirmation from your parents.
When you get older, these purposes may not serve you as well as they once did. Your purpose may shift towards obtaining the right education, surrounding yourself with greater people, and finding the right work so that you can create a meaningful life for yourself.
When I was a high school student, my goal was to become a soccer player so that I could play the game in front of thousands of people. My purpose back then was to become a superstar. But after a life-changing injury, my purpose changed, and I was willing to give up old purposes and find new ones.
To find your purpose, you’ve got to look in places that spark a fire in you. They can be your wake-up call, strengths, weaknesses, or things that you dislike. You need to explore various places and disregard none to find your purpose.
One place where I often find my purpose is in my daily journal. If you have a habit of journaling and writing down your thoughts, you will often see the things that you keep writing again and again, days in, days out, and over the years. Pay attention to those words. They’re your own reminders of what you want to do and what your purposes are.
I came to know that finding your purpose isn’t the easiest thing in life, but it is never impossible to find it.
I hope you find yours!
