Psychology tells us that people are happiest when they feel like they have a sense of purpose.
But what if you don’t know what your purpose is? How do you find it?
I spent a lot of my 20s trying to figure out what I should do with my life. I went to college and got a degree in English, but I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. I worked various jobs, but nothing felt like the right fit. I felt lost and purposeless.
A friend told me about a book called The Purpose Driven Lifeâ by Rick Warren. In it, Warren talks about how everyone has a God-given purpose for their lives. This resonated with me, and I decided to find my purpose.
I started by looking at things that made me happy. What did I enjoy doing? What did I feel passionate about? I tried a lot of different things, and eventually I found my passion in writing.
Now, I write every day. I’ve published articles, books, and even a blog. Writing is my purpose, and it brings me joy. If you’re searching for your purpose, don’t give up. Try new things and follow your heart. You’ll find your purpose eventually.
“What am I supposed to do with my life?” This is a question we all ask ourselves at some point. And it can be a tough one to answer. For some people, finding their purpose is easy. They know what they’re passionate about and they go after it. But for others, it’s not so straightforward.
I was one of those people. I didn’t know what I was supposed to do with my life. I had interests and hobbies, but nothing that I was truly passionate about. And so, I did what many people do in this situation: I went to college.
I studied hard and got good grades. But even after getting my degree, I still didn’t feel like I had found my purpose. I was lost and unsure of what to do next.
But then, one day, everything changed. I was reading a book about self-discovery and it suddenly clicked for me: my purpose in life was to help others find their own purpose.
This realization was a turning point for me. It lit a fire within me and gave me a sense of direction. From that day forward, I dedicated myself to helping others find their purpose in life.
If you’re struggling to find your purpose, know that you’re not alone. But also know that it is possible to find it. It might take some soul-searching and effort, but it will be worth it when you finally discover what you’re meant to do with your life.”
