The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.

– Oprah Winfrey

How to find your life purpose? No one wouldn’t love to know what their life purpose is. And how to incorporate it into the daily lives. If we don’t realize what our life purpose is then we get disappointed and bitter about the whole “deep and spiritual stuff.”

I’ve met many people who have given up searching for more. And I can’t blame them. Sometimes the life gets messy, and we experience a lot of difficult moments which make us feel like there is something wrong with us.

I know people who think that there is something wrong with them and that everyone else has some purpose but not them. All these thoughts come from our fear-based part of the mind. Although they aren’t real, they seem pretty solid and concrete when we don’t know how to switch them off.

It’s a struggle for most of us to know (without a shadow of a doubt) what our life purpose is. We keep ourselves asking “Is there a higher meaning in my life?” or “What am I passionate about?” and almost all of us have asked at one point or another: “Is this all? Was I born to live just like this?”

The last question is the one I used to ask myself frequently. Together with another favorite question of mine: “Who am I?”

I’ve talked to hundreds of people about life purpose and one thing I know for sure;

We all have a life purpose, but most of us are blind to recognize it or lack the courage to live it.

If you don’t know why you’re here, stop everything that you’re doing and figure out what your purpose(s) is. This will give your life and your decisions yet unrecognized dimension.

Finding your life purpose isn’t the final goal. It’s the starting point.

When we’re deliberate about our actions and decisions, we walk steadily with our legs firmly planted in the ground and our heads high up in the sky.

Whoever you’re, whatever your origin is, you aren’t here by accident.

Everything that you’ve experienced was to make you ready to live your life to the fullest. Don’t wait. Don’t waste this precious life because you don’t feel ready. You’re exactly where you’re meant to be.
