Why it Pays to Have a Definite Life Purpose
When was the last time you were asked, what is your "Definite Life Purpose"?
It is not like everyday we go around asking friends or family what their definite life purpose is or even talk about it. However, knowing what your definite life purpose is, will help you stay focused, accomplish your goals faster, and bring about the kind of results you would like to have in your life.
One way it pays to know what your life purpose is, is that it weeds out all the distractions that come in your way. How many times have you been working a particular goal and before you know it you are working on something else that has nothing to do with your goal? It seems to be the little things that catch us off guard and then it takes a whole lot of effort to get back on course. When you know what your goal is, your life purpose, you are able to stay focused and not get side tracked. You will begin to filter out all the things that don't keep you moving towards your goal, and continue to focus on those that do.
Another way it pays to know your life purpose is that it's YOUR life purpose. No matter what your life purpose is, you would be more willing to pay the price. Only those that are willing to pay the price will accomplish their goals. When it's YOUR life purpose you will stand and fight for it no matter what. Also, once you know your life purpose, you can start living it.
Can my life purpose change over time?
Sure, your life purpose can change over time. You can also think of your life purpose as your own mission statement. Most, if not all, businesses will have a mission statement. It will usually cover what the company stands for and the quality they will provide their service in. Many people live their whole lives wondering what their purpose is. Not you. Once you know what your life purpose is, your goals get accomplished faster, and you will have a sense of purpose in your life.
How can I discover my life purpose?
There are various steps that you can go through to help find what your life purpose is. Some people make this part hard when it really isn't. Many people find their life purpose by looking at what they are passionate about. Take some time to listen to your heart. You will find it.
