How to Find Your Purpose and Passion in Life

How to Find Your Purpose and Passion in Life


Here are some ideas on how to find your purpose and passion in life:

  • Decide that you're going to think for yourself and make your own decisions about what you do in life.
  • Get professional help to heal your inner hurts so you can focus on the wonderful things about you.
  • Start the process of discovering who you are by looking deep inside. Ask yourself, "If I could do anything I wanted to in life, with no restrictions and without worrying about finances or what people and society tell me I should do, what would it be?" Be completely honest with yourself, be courageous. Don't consider anything but what you truly want to do in life, what really speaks to you at your core or in your heart. Make sure that your answer is something having to do with your path in life, avoid things that force you to give up your power to someone or something else or that you do out of some sense of external duty or obligation. This is solely about you and what you genuinely want to do.
  • Write down the idea you come up with, this is your purpose and passion.
  • Take one small action to make your idea a reality.
  • Continue taking small actions until you have achieved your dream.

A big part of self-awareness is understanding that all that matters in life is being yourself, the real you, the person who lives deep in your heart and who has the courage to live passionately and purposefully.

Self-Awareness and Being Happy

Self-Awareness and Being Happy

One of the most important reasons to increase your self-awareness is so you can be happy. There are a lot of people walking around who insist they're happy but who really are hiding a lot of turmoil just under the surface. Being happy means that the various parts of your life are in balance rather than conflict or tension. It's nearly impossible to feel genuine happiness if you have areas of your life that always remind you that all is not well.

A big part of self-awareness is working on your warts by taking an honest look at yourself. Heal the parts of you that create tension in your life and you'll be able to feel joy like never before. It may be difficult or painful at first, but the long-term rewards are immense. What will you do to use self-awareness to be more happy?
