Perhaps you began an activity that you thought could define you, but afterward, you realized that it wasn’t exactly what you were hoping for. Maybe, you hated what you did after a time. Perhaps you even felt guilty for having made the wrong decision.
However, you were awed by this thing. That remarkable, self-defining, self-evident thing was supposed to be why you were here.
Let me first share a secret with you. It’s been 43 years since I was born. I know that I’ve been on this road in all of my years. At times, I’ve been there twice or three times a year. It’s not fun, I am sure.
Like me, you’re entirely off the mark.
We’re not expected to search out “our motive.”
It’s not our job to find a spot where we all “perfectly meet” in our current lives.
What My Purpose Found Me
I was leaving my abusive relationship and declared bankruptcy. My life was in complete chaos. I was also at the bottom of the mountain and was about to begin the challenging climb to the top. It was exhausting and frustrating.
In my self-discovery and healing journey, I decided to alter how I lived my life. I began volunteering in a homeless shelter.
I’ll tell you the truth I did it because of two reasons. The first was self-centered. The other was humane (and honest).
I needed to clear my thoughts off all my troubles, and I decided that the best method to achieve that was to be surrounded by people whose problems were more prominent than mine. This did the trick. However, something else took place.
I am in love with people who were homeless people I met and felt a powerful feeling of the need to be there. Phew! I didn’t even see this coming.
It was then my mission to continue doing more of it. To help people, all people, even animals. I just wanted to help everybody in any way I could and as often as possible.
I found my calling to play my part to help make the world more beautiful.
Life can be too chaotic, and you’re wasting your precious time seeking to “find” your purpose.
Here are five reasons to put aside the search for your goal and instead start living it.
Life is meant to be lived. I’ll reiterate it: my age is 43. Soon, I’ll be 44. I’m about one year away from becoming a half-century old for all you mathematicians.
Wow, I’m beginning to feel personally attacked because of my age.
However, I’d spent all the time trying to discover my passion and all the cool shit that I encountered during the process might have been viewed as a bit boring.
Please take a moment to think about it.
All that you’ve done to the present moment has resulted from your choices and actions, that is, of your intent. There have been significant victories and beautiful moments, and I’m sure you’ve created many beautiful memories.
Do we need to let all of this go into oblivion when we find a “reason” to continue living?
It’s about living. It’s about taking risks while making flaws. It’s about learning and growing. And it’s about embracing each moment as it is and not much more.
Your goal is to fulfill your purpose every day as you live your the world. You can find meaning every day by living your current life.
I’ve been there as well as you.

What you’re doing now is the exact place you need to Be
There is no other place in the world other than where you’re currently. This is something that you have to come to terms with before you can choose your path to follow.
Make moves, finish the job and continue to move forward.
There is a purpose to each second, every breath you take, and every thought that pops in your head.
This is what makes our path, and it’s the thing that propels us forward. It is not necessary to have the motivation to live life with purpose. All you need is to decide the direction you wish to go.
The intention is the key to our mission.
We live it every minute of the day.
The main reason you are here is to study this article. Continue going through. You may gain something new.
Your current love affair is Certain to Change.
I’m going to be completely transparent with you. Most of the things I was enthralled by when I was in my teens, and early twenties aren’t necessary for my life now.
My life has always revolved around art and being an author. Still, the methods and techniques that I previously believed were my complete personal style have evolved in some instances quite drastically.
In essence, what you cherish now will diminish as you get older. You’ll discover new passions and learn new skills, and, sometimes, things happen, and suddenly, you’ll have A unique view of life in a matter of minutes.
These are the moments that help us find the direction we’re meant to go. If you genuinely consider it, you’re already on that road and moving in the direction you want to go.
Love the things you are passionate about now, but don’t hold onto it. Just let it be what you want to.
There is a purpose in serving the things you genuinely love — all the time.
“The reason for living isn’t to be content. It’s about being useful, being a good person, being kind, and contributing to the world in which you’ve lived your life and lived it properly.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Passion is available everywhere
Everyone can find an interest that is new to them. And that’s what makes the majority of us insane when we believe we’ve “found the right path.”
Imagine this: You’ve discovered your goal, and on the way towards your newfound reason, you come across something that makes you feel more excited than what your purpose before had.
So, what exactly does this mean?
Are you right? Did you choose the wrong motive?
Nope. Not at all.
You’ve found a brand-new reason to be there — an interest you didn’t even know existed.
If you’re lucky enough, you’ll see this happen throughout your entire existence.
Purpose Lives are Lives of Action
I used to stay up all night on my porch, sitting and contemplating all possibilities I could have done in my life.
Does this sound familiar?
It’s what we refer to as mental masturbation. Yes, it does make you feel better. However, it is also known as inaction. It is the most ineffective effort one can ever put into.
The majority of us sit and complain because we cannot pinpoint what makes us feel. That’s when we begin to think about daydreams. Most times, the factor that drives us is right in front of us every moment, even when we’re dreaming.
If you’re determined to find something that can give you meaning in your existence, begin by doing what you are confident. Please start with the most basic steps and let them guide you to your success.
Don’t even consider doing it. Just do it and then take the straight road.
Your best efforts will always bring you to your best times — or the most profound self-awareness you’ll discover.
