What is your life purpose is a question you hear being asked from time to time. For those people that have a clearly defined life purpose, they will not fear being asked the question, they will be bursting with enthusiasm to explain everything about it. For everyone else, it is a question that evokes a reaction that can be quite varied, from aiming ridicule back at the person asking the question to a feeling of embarrassment at having no answer. Whatever the reaction, there is always a feeling of a void where a life purpose should be residing.
The routine of day to day life can often leave little room for thinking about such massive questions. Months and even years can pass by without actually seriously contemplating such a potentially life changing question. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you do not have definite major purpose. You may be convinced that an exciting and fulfilling life is just something for other people. This is quite wrong. Every single person without exception has the potential to life their life to the fullest. It is merely the experience that you have during your life that determines whether you follow it or not. If you go through life with external influences, however subtle, telling you that there is no point aiming high because you’ll end up disappointed, or that it is foolish to do anything other than getting a good education, getting a steady job and living the stereotypical model existence.
So if you have a major goal that you don’t know about, how do you go about finding out what it is?
As soon as you have opened your mind up to the possibility that there could have been a better life for you if your circumstances had been different, then you are ready. If you have been dealt a bad hand in life, remember that it is not written in the stars that this was always going to happen to you, it is ultimately you that had the power to change what happened. How you react to situations is what you have learned, not who you are or how everyone reacts.
If something bad happens, your practised reaction may be to think that it always happens to you, but this is something that you have learned. Many successful and happy people believe they attract situations because of their positive outlook.
Buried deep in your consciousness, beneath all the opinions, stresses and anxieties, you will be able to switch off from the negativity you may be feeling presently about your life and actually get excited about things happening to you that you may have stifled for years.
