How to Discover Your Life Purpose

Every individual on the planet wants or needs a sense of purpose

Finding the reason that you are here and the positive difference you can make in this world through your life.
Some people seem to discover that purpose easily and early in life, others seemingly struggle to find it at all. Without knowing your purpose life will be confusing, frustrating disappointing and lack meaning.

Amazon have 151,000 books that are related in some way to finding your life purpose, that’s a lot of reading and it makes the subject appear overly difficult. But I believe it need not be complicated but rather fairly straight forward.

Your talents and natural gifts are a huge clue to discovering that big life purpose.

I heard someone describe it this way – “God has put gifts and talents and ability on the inside of every one of us. When you develop that and you believe in yourself and you believe that you’re a person of influence and a person of purpose, I believe you can rise up out of any situation.”

Here are five simple questions you can ask yourself that will help in discovering your life’s purpose

1/ – Who are you, what’s your name, accept who you are. Acknowledge that your life begins with God, He created you to be you, and your identity has come from Him. Embrace how you were created and the talents you were given.

2/ – What is the one thing you feel supremely qualified to teach others above all else?

3/ – Who do you do that for? (Who are the people you do that for?)

4/ – What is it those people wanted or needed? (What needs were you meeting in their lives?)

5/ – How were people changed as a result? (Through the use of your talents and gifts, what did people get out of it?)

The first two steps above are about us and the last three are about others.

One of the greatest keys to discovering your life purpose is to understand its more about others and less about us.

Your purpose is attached to the lives of other people, life was never designed to be lived out in isolation, but rather your purpose is discovered through a life of service to others.

Jesus said –
45  For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45 (NIV2011)

Something to think about.
