How did you find your purpose or are you still seeking it?
To some people, it’s easy to talk about purpose, vision, mission etc; while to some of us it’s been doing what works best and even striving to be a little better every day without too much thinking of what the future looks like.
Whatever it is for you presently – finding your purpose is something everyone will eventually find time to ponder.
Unfortunately, to many people it happens more on their death bed.
“How much of my life did I commit to what’s truly important and meaningful to me?”
As you can guess, it takes a little effort; time and reflections to know what you’re actually good at and focusing on it.
But we know its not as easy as can be said;
1) Our interest changes over time – You can start out with a particular course, die hard loyal to an interest; life event happens – you could decide to pursue another interest.
2) Talents vs work – some of us are very talented in particular fields, some less talented – yet we might find ourselves in the same work or field despite our degree of talents.
To add salt to the injury; you might find someone worse than you heading you, or making more money than you.
With all these challenges, mentioned; it’s NOT an excuse to work on ourselves.
How to find your purpose in life?
1. Start with why
There is ONLY ONE way to escape a situation where you feel stuck and lead the life you’ve always wanted.
Starting with your why is the key to running your business or career from a heartfelt space from love, joy, passion, purpose, fulfilment, and true alignment.
Wakeup with intention and purpose to create the life you want, then go make it a reality ✨️
2. Help or serve others
When you find purpose in serving people, as a byproduct, you will live an incredibly fulfilled life.
Why focus on serving others?
As a guide, which is where I’m driving at – the more you commit to service and helping others; the easier this path is going to be for you.

It does not mean being a “Yes-man” or engaging in stuff you hate just to please others.
Its finding that thing you can do that seems like play to you but perceived as WORK to others.
For me it’s through Entrepreneurship, helping others stay healthy through simple lifestyle choices, habits and helping others reach their full potential by being the best of their selves daily.
Here’s how a Coach and Mentor, Luka put it:
Money is a reflection of how many people you are serving and how well you do that.
Money is a reflection of the amount of lives you are IMPACTING.
Adopting this view has not only helped me create more fulfillment & find more meaning in what I do..
You choose your own purpose based on what makes you happy (not necessarily comfortable).
Till you know what to decide, experiment.
Take in new hobbies, search what exists in the world, close your eyes, imagine doing it and see how it makes you feel.
To most of us; we might need to do a whole lot of shit, try different paths, execute several ideas, before finding that path which actually gives us life the most.
Here are some questions to ponder about right now;
1. What do I feel inspired by? Follow your joy. Its where ur purpose is.
2. What am I particularly talented at?
Ask yourself what you’ll do if you won a million dollars – what you feel in your heart calls to you.
That way you find something you’re passionate about. Combining passion with what you’re interested in and also choose to do – makes a great choice!
3. What needs significant change in the world?
4. Build a Strong Mindset
Decide, believe, take action, and achieve anything you want, because you can.
Whether you feel you have a purpose or not, realize that no one is coming to save you!
Make a decision that you’re going to change your life completely and stick to it.
Why you should find your purpose
- Get clear on some form of direction you want to go in.
- Build trust in yourself and that you are worthy enough, so that you get more out of life.
Once you start finding yourself; its time to start living more intentional.
What is the quickest way to find your purpose in life?
Your purpose in life isn’t just gonna manifest out of thin air
You need to find your purpose and get clear about the next steps in your life.
