Discover Your Purpose In Life
Everyone has a life purpose; a unique and special something each of us is supposed to do in LIFE. A life purpose is not a specific job or career, it is much deeper and much more fulfilling. Now, you can uncover your own life purpose. You can do it the easy, fast, modern way, using a modestly priced online program, or you can uncover your own life purpose using the more difficult (but free) old-fashioned do-it-yourself method, If you want to save a few bucks and try doing it yourself here's how ...
There are 3 main parts to your life purpose ... motivations, life principles, and service to others.
Step #1 Motivations
First, list at least 5 activities you like to do most.
Next you list the actions required to do your favorite activities. Use only "action verbs"; action verbs are words like: create, nurture, restore, catagorize, communicate, etc.
Then, narrow the action verbs down to the top 3 choices.
Step #2 Principles
Next you list the ideals that you, personally, believe in most strongly. What you stand for. Come up with as many as you can think of (5 or more if possible). Then you choose the single most important principle to you; your guiding principle.
Step #3 Service
Your life purpose also involves being of service. Being of service to others. Being of service to others in the real world. Think about others in society who you care about strongly and would like to see helped, i.e. what groups or types of people or entity would you most like to serve or see helped? List as many as come to mind (10-12 if possible). Then choose the single most important one to you, the one that you feel the strongest about.
If you complete these 3 exercises properly all 3 components of your life purpose will be revealed to you.
Just put the 3 components together and you will have the answer to the age-old question of "who am I ... and why am I here". You will have discovered your own unique and special purpose in life.
