Do you ever find yourself wondering if there's more to life than what you seem to be experiencing? Some deeper meaning or life purpose that seems to have been evading you so far?
Or perhaps it's more a sense of creeping despair that you're caught up in a rut and not knowing how you can get out of it?
I have come across many people over the years who on first appearances, seem to lead quite successful lives - with good well-paying jobs and all the material trappings of success. And yet these same people have confided to me that there remains within them a sense of emptiness, a feeling that there is meant to be something more - but they can't quite put their finger on what is missing.
In the following quite long video clip, Rick Warren shares some thoughts from his best selling book, "A Purpose Driven Life".
- Where to look for purpose in your life
So, what are some of the signposts that might help you in the search to discover your life purpose?
Guidance from wise counsellors suggest that your life purpose will always be something that:....
i) You feel passionate about
ii) You are naturally good at
iii) You already love to do
iv) Is important to you
By taking time to reflect upon the above four points, you can then generate a list of activities and from these activities, you might well find clues as to where your life purpose will be
And if there's one thing that I have noticed about those people who feel they have found their life purpose and are living in alignment with it - it's this .......They all carry a big smile and seem so abundantly happy! .... They have an unshakable faith that they are here for a reason and typically they see they have been blessed with gifts and opportunities that enable them to help others in some way.
And that is my wish for you .....that you find a way of harnessing your talents and serving others, and in doing so, you enjoy all of the rewards and satisfaction that you deserve.
