What is the Purpose of life ?
Have you ever stopped working in middle of your regular job and thought ‘what am I doing with my life? or What is the Purpose of my life ?’ Well, this has happened to most of us at some point of our lives.
At times, we all feel lost, de-motivated, and think all the world sufferings have dawned upon our shoulders. Many people take it as a phase of life that ‘shall pass too’ and some tend to read motivational and positive books to keep going.
Well, a third category of people go forward and look for purpose in what they are doing and what it will lead to. Basically, they look for purpose in their life.
Finding purpose of your life can be a struggling affair as we are passionate about many things at a given point of time. We all examine our lives but we have to live our lives to the fullest.
But, once you find out the purpose of your life, you will excel in whatever you do and never have those withdrawal symptoms.
All in all, if you want to find purpose of your life, it will take only FIVE minutes! Yes, during a TEDX Malibu, Adam Leipzig summed up finding the purpose of your life in just five minutes or less.
Who are you
The answer lies within you. Understand the kind of person you are and there can be things that can’t match with your basic nature
What do you do
What do you love to do? Ask yourself this basic question that what you love to do. There can be multiple answers such as you can love teaching, cooking, coding, gardening, etc. Refine this and ask ‘What is that you feel supremely qualified to teach other people?’
Who do you do it for
Picture them in your mid. Who are the people you are doing it for? What changes you will bring in their lives.
What do they want/need
Understand what is that those people want, whom you are doing it for.
How do they change/transform as a result
If you make other people happy, life will take care that you are happy too. One instance to sum it all is-If you want to write children books, you can say- I am ‘XYZ’, I write story books for children, so that they sleep and see magical dreams.
