Discovering Your Purpose

Hey guys! Welcome back. One of life’s biggest and toughest questions is “Why am I here?”. And sometimes there is no straightforward answer. We don’t all take an easy path to finding where we belong or what we are meant to do. But there are ways of figuring that out.

The first thing you will want to do is create a vision. What do you want to do? Where do you want to be in ten years? What qualities do you have have that you like? What are your hobbies? Create a vision based on what you know and like about yourself and work on finding a career from that. Don’t waste precious time following the wrong thing.

Another thing you want to do is look at what you spend time doing. If it takes up your time now, chances are it will will take up time in your future. So what’s the harm in figuring out if there is a career in that? Look at your hobbies. If it’s art, see what you can do with that. If it’s music, follow a music path. Whatever it is, if it’s your passion, follow that and build a vision off of it.

Talk to people. If you know someone with a career that interests you, talk to them. Ask them what they do on a day to day basis. Ask them about their salary and benefits. Find out what kind of education they needed, if any at all. Ask questions and don’t be afraid.

Look into things. Decide what you are most interested in and research it. There are plenty of possibilities and opportunities. All you have to do is invest a little time in it.

Trust yourself. One of the worst things you can do is doubt what you know. If you know there is something you really want to do, do it. It can be scary, but if it’s meant to be it will be. Trust your instincts and allow yourself to dream. Keep an open mind. You never know what will come your way.

Finally, commit to it. Once you know, commit. Of course, realize that you may change your mind. But once you have a basic idea get started. Don’t let anyone or anything tell you you can’t or shouldn’t. It’s your life. It’s your decision. Make it what you want. Make it about you. Don’t tell people what you are going to do, show them what you have done.

That’s all for this one. I hope you enjoyed it. Please like it if you did. Don’t forget to follow if you’re not already and I will see you next time!
