What is Your Purpose?

I remember when I was in 8th grade and we were told we had to decide what we were going to do for the rest of our lives by choosing college or no college and if we picked college I was supposed to know at 12 years old what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, to know my purpose.

I remember struggling for weeks, agonizing over the decision to finally tossing in the towel claiming I had no desire for college and I would just work until I figured it out.

Well I ended up going to college and graduating, choosing a life of teaching, which I believe is my true purpose. It took me all four years of high school and a year at a local college to decide. What I would have done to figure it out sooner making life a whole lot easier.

So how does a person find his/her purpose? It is actually very simple, once you deal with figuring out how to let go of what everyone else thinks you should do or be. That is the very first step in finding your purpose, letting go of everything anyone has told you about what you should do.

Everyone has their opinion and that is great because it never hurts to hear what someone else thinks. But ultimately it is your life and your decision, and you have to live with that decision not them.

The next step is to sit down with your laptop, at your computer, or go old school and get a piece of paper and pen. Now ask yourself this question, “What is my purpose?” and type in or write down the very first thing that pops into your head. It does not matter if it sounds crazy or silly, get it down. Now continue to do that, getting everything possible thought, idea or possibility down.

At some point one of them will hit you more emotionally then any of the rest. Be aware though that this may take 30-40 minutes depending on how much junk is rolling around in your head. That is what will take up the time, getting all the opinions you have gotten over the years.

During this process you may notice a couple that hit you on an emotional level, but unless it gets a big response, possibly making you cry, yes that much emotion, you are not there yet keep going.

You will also probably at some point have the urge to quit because nothing is coming to you or you feel like you have started to repeat yourself. You need to push past this stage and get over the hump where the ideas will start to flow more easily.

It is also important that you do this in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted or bothered. Turn off your phone, drop the kids off at the sitters, and lock your doors or you will totally interrupt the whole flow and have to start over.

It is important that you truly make the commitment, mentally before you begin and be willing to open your mind up and be open to the answers that will come to you if you follow the steps, allowing you to find your purpose.
