How to Listen and Find Your Purpose in Life

articles Mar 28, 2020

Ever so often, people find themselves at a point where they start to question their purpose in life. On a daily basis, you are in a hurry to do things or be in places. But you know that there is something from deep within you that is waiting to be discovered. 

It is waiting to be found if only you are open to making things happen. 

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of doing something but not knowing why you are doing what you are doing? With all the distractions around and the pressure to always be at your best, it can be hard to determine what it is that you really want to do. 

Finding one's purpose in life can be tough, but it’s not something that you should feel bad about. Sometimes, all we need to learn is to enjoy the whole journey. In time, we will be able to determine the reason why we do what we do. 

Confronting Reality: “I don't know what to do with my life”

Do you really not know? Or are you too afraid to know what you truly want to do with your life? Are you scared that it won’t the same as what people expect of you? The real problem is not that you don't know what to do with your life but whether you have the courage to pursue it.  

You know what you want. You are too busy looking to do something great that you forget to see what is right in front of you. You are looking for peace at all the wrong places when the one that could truly satisfy your soul is the peace that you can only find from within. 

Have you ever stopped and listened to what your heart is telling you? Or are you always too busy with the tasks and responsibilities at hand that you forget about living your life?

Think about how you spent the first half of your day today. How much of it was spent on work and other distractions? News, social media, messaging, responding to emails, doing errands, and all the other tasks that normally fill up your day. 

As you go about your day, do you ever stop to admire the silence? It is the time when you get to ask yourself the deepest questions of your being - what is life about? 

Listening is, sometimes, the only thing that truly matters. Ask yourself these questions below. Finding answers today is not the goal. The purpose of asking is to teach yourself that listening to the voice within is what will truly give you comfort.

  • Ask yourself: What do truly you need? 
  • What have you committed yourself to do?
  • Reflect on why are you doing the things that you’re doing.
  • What is the most meaningful part of your life right now?
  • What do you really care most about in your life?

Finding Your Passion: “I have no purpose”

This is one of those things that people feel on a day to day basis but often overlook. It is not that these feelings do not matter. It's just that other things are seemingly more important. 

Though it sounds cliche, finding one's purpose in life should never be a dream that will never be fulfilled. Instead, the search for one's meaning should be used as a tool to achieve a happier and healthier life

Why do people need to have a sense of purpose? It is the juice that fuels the drive to be a better person every day. When we know why we do what we do, we gain a sense of control in our lives. It brings about positive outcomes. 

More than productivity, a positive perspective about ourselves allows us to live wonderfully, healthy lives. The good thing about searching for your purpose is that you don't have to make difficult decisions such as fulfilling your purpose or sticking to the job that pays the bills, for example.  

In fact, the more that you find your purpose in life, the more that you are able to attract wealth. Where do you begin your search? How do you teach yourself to love what you do and find meaning in what you do?

Discovering New Things: “My life has no meaning”

It doesn't take a genius to know if the life you have right now has meaning or not. All it takes is to ask yourself if you are happy with what you are doing now or is it making you miserable?. When you are hesitant to answer, then you know that you need these steps to figure out your way through life:

  • Engage in an activity where you can devote your time, your resources or your talent. Finding your sense of purpose is not just about finding happiness in earning money. Get yourself acquainted with people or organizations that will allow you to do something for a good cause. Whether it is your time, money or your skill, doing good for others helps you feel good about yourself. In no time, you'll know if it is something that you can do regularly simply because it makes you happy. 
  • Surround yourself with people who keep a positive outlook on life. When you are with people who look at the bright side of things, you know that you'll be sharing that kind of thinking. Although not everything in your life goes the way you want it to, thinking positively will only fuel your desire to try harder. Being around people who think negatively will only bring your spirits down. Not only are they not helping, but they tend to make matters worse than they already are. 
  • Explore new interests. Try baking or painting. Maybe you can learn a new language or perhaps engage in a new sport because all these will encourage you to develop yourself further. Be a better individual. Create something new from your skill and be inspired to become the better version of who you were yesterday. You'd be surprised to know that in the midst of everything, you have finally found your purpose. 

Your purpose in life is not just to go through it and eventually die. You know that your life is more than just that. There is no rush in determining what it is that truly makes you happy. After all, the goal is for you to enjoy the ride and learn something new in the process. 

Allow yourself to explore. Make time to try new things. Enjoy life as it happens. After all, though everyone is destined to have an end, you know you have had a full and contented life.
