Purpose gives our life meaning, but most humans are not consciously born knowing what their purpose is. Most living things belong to a particular soul group and are born knowing their purpose in life. An animal will spend its day foraging for food, taking care of itself and its young, and creating a home. No one has to tell an animal to do this, because it instinctively knows how. However, humans, for the most part, are not born consciously knowing what their purpose is. Finding our purpose is not always easy, because it must be found through exploration; but when purpose is discovered, life can then be lived with intention. Moreover, choices can be made that serve our objective for why we’re here on the planet. We allow ourselves to grow by embracing life wholeheartedly and exploring many different pathways. Our purpose is as unique as we are individual and will continue to evolve as we move through life, because finding and fulfilling our purpose can be a lifelong endeavor. However, no one can tell another what that purpose is, and no one needs another’s permission to fulfill that purpose. To figure out what your purpose is, I suggest that you ask yourself what drives you, what makes you glad to be alive, not what forces you out of bed in the morning. Make a list of activities that you wish you were involved in or thinking about as a career path that you would love to embark upon. Picture yourself devoting your time to projects that spark your imagination, inspire, excite, and satisfy you. These are endeavors that can help one fulfill their purpose and bring about the most satisfaction. Time spent on these endeavors will never feel like a waste. Living this way each day will make you feel significant and capable because each choice made and every action taken will have meaning to it.
