Elevate Your Potential Magazine
How do you go about finding a sense of purpose? If you’re young, how do you find your first real drive in life? It begins with following your curiosity and interests. Whatever you are deeply curious about is worth exploring. Pursue your passions with enough verve, and you will find what is right for you. But don’t feel like you have to settle on one thing quickly in life.
Accept that you have to try many things before you find your one thing. It’s necessary to be bold in chasing your interests, to bounce around, to try new things, to look within and discover what is important to you. Once you find several interests you absolutely love, give them your full attention. It’s in giving our all that we experience a life of purpose.
Finding Your Purpose in Your Unique Self
There are 7 billion people walking this earth, and you are unique among them. If that’s true, perhaps our purpose involves being true to our unique selves. In The Motivation Manifesto, I suggest the main drive of humankind is our desire to experience and practice “personal freedom”—being ourselves fully and pursuing our own path unencumbered by conformity or fear. Be you, the universe seems to tell us.
You are unique, but remember those 7 billion other people? They have been put here to be unique as well. They are also a reminder to take your eyes off yourself and help others achieve their own personal freedom. Perhaps the universe is saying, You are unique but you are not alone, so serve your fellow humans.
(Brendon Burchard) “Let’s talk about your life’s mission, your life’s purpose, what you’re here to do. If you know what that is, phenomenal, that’s incredible and congratulations. So few people will ever find that but I also want to rattle it a little bit if you think you know what it is. And also make it okay if you don’t know what it is.”
Live the Best Quality of Life That You Can
This should be one of the main missions for us all, don’t you think? Make it a priority to grow and excel in your health, relationships, career, finances, spirituality, hobbies. Improve each of these areas and you’ll start to feel on purpose.
Follow your interests. Whatever you are deeply curious about is worth exploring. Explore your passions with enough verve and you will find what is right for you. Allow yourself to transition from one thing to another. Give yourself permission to move between jobs, careers, companies, and passionate pursuits.
The Only Boundaries are Boundaries of Belief
Serve! You can travel the world looking for some magnificent purpose, but after all the belly gazing the truth that always emerges is this: by serving others we feel more purposeful. So just look around you and ask, “How can I help?” In the spirit of service we will soar to our full potential.
