What's the secret to finding your purpose? Most people dream of becoming successful in all areas of life, a fulfilling career, healthy relationships and a life filled with more meaning.
Studies show that having a clear purpose not only helps give your life a sense of direction and more fulfilment but also has powerful health benefits. Researchers have found that having an increased sense of purpose in life can help you live longer than those that don't have any clear direction.
In recent times, 'finding your purpose' has become more deeply connected to creating a life of freedom. For many, the state of the world has made people look forward to living a life without restriction, where they can travel when they want, work from their laptop anywhere in the world and live life on their own terms.
When your world seems out of your control, what's the next step? The problem is most people think uncertainty is a bad thing when really, that's when the magic happens.
Uncertainty often forces us to make changes in our lives that we might not ever have made before had we not been thrown into the unknown. Unpredictable times catapult you out of your comfort zone and into a place where only new things are possible. If you've ever been in a situation where the path seems unclear, it could be exactly what you need to get you to the next step.
When you decide to change your life, it's a powerful position. Learning to love the unknown and embracing the present can bring you new opportunities in ways you may not have considered before.
Whether you're unsure of your purpose or ready to take the leap, here are four sure-fire ways to help you find more meaning in your life.
As humans, we are made for connection, so it’s no coincidence that doing things for others gives you a more profound sense of meaning and belonging.
Leaning into being of service to others helps you find more purpose and meaning, especially when you feel disconnected and alone. It reconnects you to your humanity and supports the expansion of the planet.
Do you ever feel you're a natural at something where other people struggle? Well, this could be your zone of genius. Pay close attention to what gives you ease and flow. Lean into your natural talents and spend more time nurturing your gifts.
Similarly to exploring your natural gifts and talents, you can also spend more time pursuing your interests. What do you get passionate about? is there a cause, movement or charity that fills you with enthusiasm or maybe it's an injustice that fills you with rage.
Either way linking your purpose to something you are passionate about can help you direct your energy towards something that can give you a sense of direction.
If you're struggling to find more substance in your life, maybe it's time to try something new. It's so easy to get stuck in the mundane routine of everyday life, doing the same things over and over again.
It could be that your purpose is something you've never tried before. Sometimes your purpose needs to be discovered. So, venturing out of your comfort zone by taking a course and expanding your skillset can take you on a new journey of personal discovery.
If you’ve ever considered doing something life changing like following your passion or pivoting into a new career. It doesn’t take long for feelings of fear and doubt to creep in that throw you off course. These are normal concerns when you’re about to do something new.
Following your dreams takes courage. While fear is there to keep you safe, sometimes changing your reality means taking action regardless of fear and trusting the unknown.
Most people spend a lifetime looking for their life's mission; it doesn't always happen overnight.
There's magic in the unknown, and as you try new things and explore your natural talents. You'll begin to enjoy your journey as it unfolds, and along the way, you'll get to take the pieces that feel good to you and follow the trail until you find your more significant reason for being.
