How to discover your life’s purpose is the most important question one should ask to himself/herself every day and should find answer of the same. We all are born for some purpose, and discovering that purpose is the most important task human being should put on top of his/her priority list. We all are born for a purpose; ask yourself, what is your purpose of being in this world? What you are meant for? Not to do a day to day job, not to fulfill your day to day responsibilities towards your family members, or anyone and not even your long term goals are your ultimate purpose. But the reason you born, the reason you all are here in this earth, -- the very reason you exist. Discover that!
Most of you might struggle to discover what you actually want in life, whereas, most of you might do not want to discover any reason and want to live your life the way it’s going. That’s alright. It’s always your personal choice. But discovering the reason might give you a wonderful reason to live life to the extent. It might let you discover not only your ultimate goal of life but your unconditional power as well. So why not giving it a try!
To begin with, I would like to share a story of Bruce lee which sets the stage for this little exercise. Once, a master of Martial Arts asked Bruce lee to teach him everything he knows about marital arts. On this, what Bruce lee did, he filled 2 cups of water and handed one cup to that master of martial arts and 1 cup he kept with himself. And said, knowledge is like these cups filled with water, to get my cup of water filled in your cup, you will have to empty your cup first. So if you want to fill your cup with my cup of knowledge, you will have empty your cup of knowledge.
Similarly, to discover your purpose of life, you will have to break that old condoning of your mind and have to replace that old software with new upgraded software of your mind. This is what my all trainings are based upon, “Human Software Development programme”, which says, as a computer cannot work without software and for different results it needs specific software, so happens with human brain. We all need human software, their maintenance and upgradation every day in order to get desired results and to keep growing in our life. The level of progress, peace and happiness depends on the level of our software, so time to upgrade you software 1 level above.
- 1st step: Sit alone in a silent place; take a piece of paper and a pen.
- 2nd step: Write at the top of the paper “What is my purpose of life”
- 3rd step: Write an answer, whatever comes to your mind. The very first thought which comes to your mind, even if you want to right “nothing”, write it.
- 4th step: repeat the 3rd step till the time you write the answer that makes you cry. The answer which will bring tears to your eyes is your purpose.
You might find it silly or would not want to do this. But, give it a try. When you live a purposeful life, life is actually different than an ordinary life. Let’s make it different, an extraordinary life. Discover your purpose!
Usually it takes 15-20 minutes to clear your head of all the clutter and the social conditioning about what you think your purpose in life is. The false answers will come from your mind and your memories, but will gradually banish out. But when the true answer finally arrives, it will feel like it’s coming to you from a different source entirely.
When you find your own unique answer to the question of why you’re here, you will feel it resonate with you deeply. The words will seem to have a special energy to you, and you will feel that energy whenever you read them. Discovering your purpose is the easy part. The hard part is keeping it with you on a daily basis and working on yourself to the point where you become that purpose. And here comes your belief power. Once you have discovered your reason, you must read it every day, the number of times you will read it, the more you will attract it into your life. But while discovering the answer, while doing this exercise, you might get irritated and would want to get up immediately, but keep doing it. It might take an hour, but you will surely get your answer and your true purpose. And once you’ve discovered you purpose, you’ll unlock your power and unconditional potential to bring that ultimate goal into the existence.
